Good day beautiful people!

My name is Michelle Morris, owner and Executive Chef of Southern Cadence Cuisine. Our team has a passion for entertaining guests. We began our career with intimate dinner parties and special occasion gatherings. We specialize in a hands on approach to entertaining. We understand that a culinary experience can bring together friends and family to create memories that are unforgettable. I have always enjoyed the inner workings of creating a beautiful wedding and took the leap a few years ago to help brides have the wedding of their dreams. My favorite thing to add to a wedding service is a custom margarita bar or a caviar and champagne bar. What is your favorite wedding luxury?
