Lynsey + Jake at their New Years Eve, Central Coast Wedding at Thousand Hills Ranch. Photo by Nikkels Photography.
The Phil’s Catering Team had a great time at this New Years Eve wedding in Pismo Beach, CA. It was quite the stormy night and we were thankful for Thousand Hills Ranch’s big, rustic barn to keep us warm and dry!
The wedding, being on New Years Eve, was also a grand party that went until midnight! That’s right, midnight! 250 guests attended and it was quite the bash.

This menu was absolutely devoured by the guests, especially the Swedish meatballs. The hearty meatball with the creamy sauce is a great comfort food item and worked perfectly on this chilly night. The lemon basil sauce poured over the chicken entree is also cream based, but the lemon and basil keep it light and refreshing. The salsa is made in-house by Chef Mike, typically with tomatillos as a not so secret ingredient that adds to the freshness and depth of flavor. Sage. Butter. Sauce. Can someone please invent a scratch-and-sniff for the internet because the delicious smell of this sauce would make your knees buckle.
Let’s take a moment to talk about the pros of a late night snack. After a couple of drinks and some dancing, guests tend to crave a bit of a snack. They ate lightly at dinner due to all the chatting and re-connecting with old and new friends and now they’re just a liiiiitle bit hungry. This is a perfect time to counter-act those drinks with a small bite. Phil’s Catering offers a variety of small bites to hit the spot: mini burgers, sliders, chicken and waffle bites, mini tacos, steak bites, and more.
We thank Lyndsey and Jake for the opportunity to be a part of their Central Coast Wedding. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!
