When Lexi and Cody approached Roots for a custom stations-style wedding, the culinary and event team designed an authentic, memorable experience that reflected the bride’s family’s favorites. The unique, mouth-watering menu offered more than 14 options between the cocktail hour and reception, including four additional custom stations with numerous offerings at each. From the elaborate grazing table filled with locally purveyed charcuterie, dips, accoutrements and fresh-caught seafood to an assortment of passed appetizers to custom stations, the team guaranteed this couple would have the elevated experience they dreamed of.

That dedication is what led Barbour to work overtime to ensure the grand, customizable 27-item poké station was the most culturally authentic offering, a detail important to the family. He visited local restaurant Umami PokéRito to taste the bride’s mother’s favorite poké rice and spent hours perfecting the menu to match the flavor profile of the dishes requested. Specific sauces, rice and condiments purchased from Hatoya in Pineville rounded out each bowl perfectly.

Each station was custom hand-crafted by Carolina Reclaimed. Providing custom tables and rental pieces is yet another way Roots ensures attention to detail. Wedding Sales Executive Olivia Elliott’s thoughtful planning and thorough, prompt communication ensured the couple enjoyed the menu-planning process and their complimentary tasting and could confidently celebrate every minute of their wedding day.

After almost two years of planning due to the pandemic, Lexi was brought to tears seeing it come to fruition, Barbour says. “We strive to create a menu and experience that reflects the couple and their journey of love,” he says. “It’s gratifying to see the joy that comes from that.”
