Groom, Jeff Schroeder & and his stunning new Bride, Stacey Popp, from Newport Beach are true curators of good taste indeed! Jeff is a co-founder of the Wine Gallery in Laguna Beach & Corona Del Mar, an accomplished Sommelier who also owns Schroeder Family Wines. They had a delicious idea for their Santa Barbara wedding reception perfectly coordinated by Jill Remy at Heart Stone Ranch. Jeff had a 2010 wheel of beautiful imported Parmesan split in half and the Pure Joy Chefs stirred in hot, fresh Mushroom and Local Herb Risotto to finish it off. The rich, fragrant deeply flavored cheese was an outstanding station idea and a huge success, of course. We filled the station out with Virgin Oil Herb Drizzled Fresh Grilled Local Vegetables.

Dear Pure Joy Catering,
Hey that was fun for everyone and the family was very very amazed that we caught the spirit of their desires.
I loved your crew and Ellen was a good partner. The bartender a hero. You really have it together there Dennis. I couldn’t have asked for more. I am hoping to have a party this summer.
Thank you so very much.

Rita, (The Wedding Hostess & Groom's Grandmother)
