Romance was in the air for Big Canoe’s first Bridal Fair on Saturday, Jan. 26 in the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. Gerard Monte, the club’s new catering and special events director (shown above), planned and managed the all-day event with an abundance of elegance, hospitality and attention to detail.

“It was a labor of love. It’s what we do best,” Monte told Smoke Signals.

“Well over 160 guests attended, along with 13 vendors,” he added.

“This was a team effort with every component coming together—from delicious food, beautiful presentation and decor, stunning flowers, personal attention of staff and management, coordination of vendors, to the many brides attending—to make this a successful bridal open house and very memorable event for Big Canoe,” he said.

Prospective brides and grooms, along with their families, were treated to colorful and artistic examples of table settings, floral arrangements and the club’s exceptional presentation of appetizers and meals.

More than 40 brides and their families attended the bridal open house to learn about Big Canoe’s many event venues and to taste signature menu items. A wide range of vendors were available to provide additional services for any size wedding.

“As Big Canoe’s catering and special events director, I was in my element,” said Monte. “Seeing the brides enter the clubhouse with their fiancés and families partaking in the festivities made my heart sing. This is what Gerard and Hector [Hector Rosano, Executive Chef] do best: we share our expertise, our knowledge, our style. We are proud to bring it to Big Canoe and its clubhouse!”
