Weddings have the unique ability to bring families together. At no other time in your life will your second cousin from Ohio, your great aunt from Maryland and the in-laws who haven’t spoken to each other in years all gather together to celebrate you and your special day. Families can be messy, they can be complicated but they can also be wonderful. Family can make weddings incredibly stressful, but you wouldn’t want to share your joy on your big day with anyone else. Your wedding will inevitably be centered around your family, so opting for a caterer who understands what family means is probably the best idea. 

Heirloom, a family-owned restaurant and catering business based out of Athens, GA, is known for sourcing the Athens community with fresh, locally grown food. Run by a father-daughter team, the food crafted by Heirloom is inspired by traditional, home-cooked comfort food.

If you haven’t noticed already, Athens has it all. This little town is buzzing with some of the best music, food, drinks and culture the South has to offer. Embedded in this bundle of culture, Heirloom simply adds to the artisan dynamic of Athens, Georgia. The restaurant-converted garage is located in the cozy neighborhood of Boulevard, just off of Prince Avenue. A once streetcar suburb of Athens, the area now reminds residents of a simpler time with its Victorian-style cottages and rustic buildings. If you’re looking to add a nostalgic touch to your wedding, this area and the restaurants within it will surely incorporate a homey feel to your wedding.

Heirloom works closely with local Athens food vendors, like the Athens Farmers Market, as well as over a dozen farms in the Athens and surrounding areas. They develop personal relationships with the farmers and producers of the food they prepare to ensure their customers are receiving the highest-quality food products. 

From rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions to bridal showers and luncheons, Heirloom can do it all. Heirloom will tailor a personal menu to fit all of your event needs. They can accommodate for a seated meal, buffet, hors d’oeuvres or a drop off at an offsite location. For smaller events like bridal showers and luncheons, Heirloom will even host your event at their restaurant!

With mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres like fried green tomato sliders, sides like fried okra with chili remoulade, homemade pimento cheese biscuits, and fried boneless pork chops, you’ll certainly be able to find something for everyone.

Heirloom has a passion for bringing community and good food wherever they go. Family is just as important to them as it is to you while planning your wedding, and they understand the importance of gathering around a table of good food with the people that mean the most to you. Make everything in your wedding count and book Heirloom!
