New Website

We are BEYOND excited to officially unveil our new look on the internet!

Thanks to the amazingly talented Patti Murphy and her Patti Murphy Designs team, AThymeToCook.com has a fresh look that fits perfectly into our vision as a company.

We started the new website project last fall and today we are filled with accomplishment and joy!

We met Patti at an industry event last summer at Stonington Vineyards and kept her card handy. She is a local artist (with the most adorable shop in the Velvet Mill in Stonington) who brought her sense of artistry to the project.

The new site’s design allows for ease of use to our current and potential clients and is filled with beautiful photography from some of the best area professionals.

Everything including our menu designing process, weddings, pop-up dinners, green certification, FAQ, team bios, featured venues, corporate events and so much more is on the site for your reading pleasure.

Please, take a look at our new little corner of the world wide web and let us know what you think!

Cheers!

In the event business, there are the essentials – amazing location, amazing food (OF COURSE!), amazing drinks, amazing floral, amazing clothes, amazing guests and so much more.

However, the photos of all these amazing things are what we can cherish for the years to come.

That’s where the AMAZING photographers come in. Silently doing their job, capturing all those special moments and making them even-lasting.

When we started to work with Patti Murphy on redesigning our website, we knew that we wanted to showcase the best of the best photographs and sent out the requests. Our friends in the photography world didn’t hesitate to share their photos from previous celebrations we worked side-by-side on.

We want to highlight those people who currently have their art on our new site. We can’t recommend them enough and would more than happy to talk to you about any of them!

Last month a few of us attended a great networking event hosted by the Rhode Island Wedding Group at the Providence G, right in the middle of a revitalized downtown Providence.

We were in awe of the grand ballroom/event space. A former Gas Company lobby (built in 1920s), the space, with huge windows and grand columns, is ideal for transforming into the celebration of your dreams. The Providence G website states it perfectly: “4,800 square feet of blank canvas to completely customize and design the look and feel of your event. From weddings, to socials, to birthday soirées…”.

We returned the following week and met with the uber-talented Kristen who serves as the Event Specialist at the Providence G. Kristen guided us on a spectacular tour and filled us in on all the details of the historic building. The space is custom-made for an unforgettable event – a caterers kitchen, beautiful restrooms, a grand lobby, and even valet parking for all guests!

Juli, one of our fabulous Event Coordinators, was at the helm and took her inspiration from ‘Blancanieves’ – a Spanish take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Snow White. It is the story of an enchanting daughter of a famed matador who flees her wicked stepmother to join a band of bullfighting dwarfs…
