Welcome to The Barn at Silverstone!

Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for considering John Serock Catering to provide a great culinary experience and exceptional service for you and your guests on your wedding day. We consider great food to be an important factor in wedding reception success and one of the aspects most remembered by guests. That means we take it seriously!

A wedding is one of those once-in-a-lifetime events that will always be remembered as family and friends join together to witness the union of a couple and celebrate their love and commitment toward each other. But as you’ve probably heard, planning a wedding can be very overwhelming for a couple. That’s why at John Serock Catering we are dedicated in making that special wedding day as stress-free as possible.  Our goal is for our couples to enjoy the ultimate gathering in celebration of their love while not having a care in the world but each other.

We’ve put together this information package to serve as a beginning point in the wedding planning process. It contains menus, frequently asked questions with helpful answers and some fun wedding ideas to get your creative juices flowing. In addition to this packet, please visit our website at www.serockcatering.com and our social media outlets: Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. We are excited to get to know you and for the possible opportunity to cater and coordinate your special day. Please feel free to give me a call personally if I can be of any assistance.


WHY JOHN SEROCK CATERING FOR YOUR WEDDING & WHATS INCLUDED?

Our delicious menus. We create our dishes using only fresh and high quality ingredients and take pride in our culinary artistry.

We only hire the best in the business and believe clean and presentable are two attributes that are imperative. The service staff will leave a lasting impression with the client and their guests. We assure you that it will be a good impression. Innovative ideas. We aim to be trend setters, not followers. We’re not caught up in old ideas or invested in outdated décor. We believe that your wedding day is unique and special, not just another run-of-the-mill catering job.

The next pages show our menus with pricing estimates for your reception, which will help you in the planning and budgeting process.  Use the menus as a guide and a starting point; if there is something you don’t see on our menu that you would love to try please let us know, and we are happy to create something unique to you!   The pricing estimates food as well as all package inclusions noted previously.  There are no “hidden” fees and the only additions to the menu pricing is the standard 6% sales tax.  Any additional services will be extra and will be outlined in your custom designed proposal.

THE PROCESS

Give us a call, or let us know when you can spend a few minutes on the phone.
We can send you menus, but we would love to get you on the phone as it’s much easier to explain our services and go over logistics. Through a 10-15 minute phone conversation (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter), we can find out your vision of your wedding day and the types of services and menu you may want us to provide.

Then, we’ll put together a proposal
We can put together a general proposal for you based on what package/menu choice you think best fits your special day and we will send it over via e-mail in PDF format. We’ll follow up to discuss any questions or revisions you may have regarding the menu.

Need a Tasting to Help With the Decision?
Once you book The Barn at Silverstone, we can book a private tasting at our office so you can get a sample of our menu offerings. If there is anything in particular you would like to try off of our menus, please let us know and we will prepare it for you. We will also be offering group tastings at The Barn at Silverstone 3 times per year.

To Secure Your Date
Once you’ve decided on our services for your wedding, we will mail you a copy of our contract which you will need to sign and return to us with your deposit to secure the date. Your contract will outline all important dates, scheduled payments, and our overall agreement.

What Next?
We will then be in touch throughout the months before the wedding to be able to answer any questions or concerns you have. 90 days before the wedding date we will meet with you to go over a time line of your wedding day, finalize the floor plan, finalize menu selections and meet at your venue if necessary.
