Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart or Galentine’s Day with your best gal pals, Vibrant Occasions always has you covered with lovely menu options. This year, we offered an exclusive Valentine’s Day dinner by partnering with Sunset Lodge at Rusty Tractor Vineyards. Guests were greeted with hors d’oeuvres, followed by a fabulous Mediterranean meal exquisitely planned by chef Serge and Mary Krikorian (Vibrant Occasions’ own lovebirds). For those that like to toast with some bubbly, guests had the option of a champagne greeting upon arrival. In an effort to truly create a fine vino experience, three wines were hand-picked by the oenophiles at Rusty Tractor Vineyards to pair perfectly with each course. Talk about fine dining!
We enjoyed getting the opportunity to be a part of this special evening and meeting so many wonderful people. Keep scrolling for the full menu below and leave us a comment with your favorite Valentine’s Day dishes.
