to-ceiling windows in the grand reception room. The food was delicious. The dance floor was packed all night. And the ending could not have been sweeter—thanks to dozens of huge, freshly made donuts from Glazed Over in Beacon.
What’s on the Menu?
The Roundhouse hosts small group tastings so couples
can sample the food a few months before their wedding. At the same time, a variety of tablescapes are set up to highlight possible combos of tables, chairs, linens, dishes, and silverware. Bringing in a local DJ and florist makes the tasting feel even more like a legit party.
Choosing from among the many pages of options wasn’t easy. “Ultimately, we just sat down and started picking things that we would want to eat,” says Jessica. “And my dad had to have pigs in a blanket—for him, they were a must.” Their final selections included beef skewers with chimichurri, a salmon and potato waffle with sour cream and caviar, fish crudo, beet meringue with goat cheese, and mushroom arancini.
As if there wasn’t already enough food, Jessica and Michael couldn’t resist some extra passed desserts—in addition to a showstopping cake, of course. Their sweet picks included salted caramel brownies, rice cereal pops, red velvet cream cheesecake pops, and dessert cones with chocolate. Jess muses, “Who doesn’t love seeing some extra treats coming their way after a night of eating, drinking,
and dancing?” 
