Love has been in the air this July! Jonathan Byrd’s has been honored to be the chosen caterer for so many newlyweds in the Central Indiana Area for over 30 years and this month has been no exception. When we weren’t cutting and serving cake, we were decorating cakes with the help of some crafty girl scouts. Keep reading to see all the events we’ve participated in this July.

Essie’s Retirement Party

Retiring is truly an occasion worth celebrating, just as Essie is. We hosted her retirement party here at 502 so she could celebrate with her family, friends, and (former) co-workers. Guests had fun looking at memories displayed on multiple photo boards and created new memories in the photobooth provided by Picture Perfect Ohio Photobooths.  Essie worked at a school for over 35 years, and now she is free to be fabulous! Look at how this lady went out-of-work in style!

Aguirre-Legg Wedding

Jonathan Byrd’s is proud to announce our newest partner venue: The Neidhammer. The Neidhammer is in the Irvington Historic District located above Neidhammer Coffee Company and Ash & Elm Cider Company. It has a very rustic and industrial feel – perfect for modern weddings! The most recent couple we hosted there had a lot of fun decorating their king’s tables, adding flowers to fixtures for a personalized touch, and showing off pictures of them growing up over the years. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Legg and thank you for letting us cater your big day!

Rios Anniversary Party

Juan and Parry Rios were married 25 years ago, but they didn’t forget how to party in all that time! These two danced the night away with their friends and family by their side. They had an elegant cake, beautiful purple centerpieces, and an over-the-top DJ. This couple made sure that they were never going to forget hitting such a big wedding milestone.

Saeed- Mohiuddin Wedding

502 East Event Centre provides so much space for your family and friends on your big day. One of the reasons we have a ton of gorgeous cultural weddings and events here is because we can accommodate so many people, such as the Saeed-Mohiuddin Wedding which had over 300 guests in attendance. Their beautiful backdrop and centerpieces were crafted by the décor professionals at Atmosphere’s Indy.

Sysco Awards Lunch

Is your staff performing how you would like them to? Have you ever stopped to thank them for their hard work and reward with something special? Our friends at Sysco Indianapolis did just that for their entire staff! The group started their morning by breaking into teams and having educational sessions in 502’s various classrooms, and then they came back together for their lunch and awards ceremony. 502 East worked with them to create a culturally diverse menu to match their travel theme. We set up multiple buffets featuring Hispanic, Italian, Asian, and Hoosier cuisine perfect for eating next to their unique globe and suitcase centerpieces.  Once lunch was over, the group celebrated together and management awarded their employees for their hard work throughout the year.

If you’re interested in multi-room corporate event for educational sessions, give 502 a call and we will customize an event your employees will never forget.

Wedding Tasting

With other caterers, when you have a wedding tasting you can only pick so many items from their menu to try. At Jonathan Byrd’s we set out a large variety of our most popular wedding dinner options, so you have the opportunity to try the best we have to offer! We set up multiple buffets, carving stations, dessert trays, and appetizers for all our upcoming brides and grooms. Guests also loved munching on popcorn popped fresh in our popcorn cart which could be easily personalized for weddings at 502. We had help from our friends as Classic Cakes, Oberer’s Flowers, and Banzi Balloons to make our wedding tasting a big hit among all our couples that came out.

Girl Scouts Cooking Class

Jonathan Byrd’s had a special cooking class for some local girl scouts from Anderson. Ten girls of varying ages and their troop leader drove here to partake in creating different dishes. The girl scouts decorated hats and cake boxes, ate fruit salad, made pizzas, and decorated cakes. Some of the girls were incredibly artistic and made gorgeous cakes to take home. We hope that this activity led towards the progress of badges for their sashes.
