In a sea of caterers, it can be difficult to distinguish and choose just one- In this week’s Vendor Spotlight, meet Kristin of Atlantic Caterers! This friendly face is a true professional and I’ve enjoyed working with her and the entire staff- read on and enjoy!
Describe yourself in three words:
Organized, Motivated, Tenacious
Why did you choose to work in weddings/special events?
I worked for a local Baltimore restaurant for many years as their dining room/banquet manager. When I booked their first wedding, I knew that was what I wanted to do as a career.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping to make a bride & groom plan the most important day of their lives.
What inspires you?
I try to pull my inspiration for an event from the couple. It’s important, I believe, that a wedding reception help the guests get a glimpse into the likes and dislikes of the bride & groom.
Complete this sentence, “If I did not work in the wedding industry, I would…”
…probably be miserable, then go back to my original profession, paralegal.
How would you describe your style?
I love couples who go with a “rustic” or “shabby chic” style wedding. It most closely represents my own personal style.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms on choosing a caterer?
Make sure you’re not only happy with the food, but also with the person within the catering company who will be handling your wedding. There are amazing caterers in the Baltimore Metro area, but the bride & groom should feel a connection with the person who will be handling their wedding day.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms on the wedding planning process in general?
Stay calm. Things will happen, they always do. Just trust that the people you’ve hired to execute your wedding will be there to handle any problems in a professional manner.
Lastly for fun, if they made a movie of your life,which actor would you want to play you?
Probably Sandra Bullock!
Thanks Kristin! Your professionalism and passion for your work really show through in all that you do- and it is contagious- thanks for a fantastic and reliable staff! Thanks so much for taking a moment to chat with me! -Tiffany
