While many folks wake up and drive to their same office space every day, the life of a caterer is such that every day we get to drive somewhere different, see beautiful sites and meet beautiful people.
This was the case on a gorgeous day this past month when we catered a 4th of July wedding at the Five Bridge Inn in Rehoboth, MA. It was a beautiful ride from our commissary in Pawtucket via the country roads of Route 44 in Massachusetts to the 80-acre venue located in a nine hundred acre preserve! Set back on a country road, it is such a remote location that it makes an absolutely beautiful venue for a wedding.

There is a Greek-style pergola in the back clearing and a wedding chapel on the front lawn, ideal for ceremonies and for photographs.
The main tent on the property is just perfect for a wedding of any size. We certainly appreciate the cook tent and the bar tent. Having our own, covered, work space available helps our work-flow. We are told that registered guests of the Inn will have access to the Inn bedrooms, bathrooms, and facilities. All guests of the event have access to the exterior bathroom facilities in a building located directly outside the tent area. Guest restrooms are full bathrooms, not portable toilets. (nice)
The 165 guests enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere of the venue, along with the music and, of course the food! Passed appetizers included coconut shrimp and teriyaki chicken skewers. The main meal was a clambake feast of lobsters, steamers, steak tips, barbecue chicken, linguica, corn on the cob, potatoes and cornbread. Of course, the full bartending service seemed to help the evening along, as it always does.
We understand that the Five Bridge Inn is also available for other events such as company outings and corporate seminars. The venue offers lots of parking. There are literally no neighbors or businesses nearby - it really seems to be a perfect place for any kind of retreat. Their amenities include a tennis court, lap pool, hiking trails, yoga studio and so much more.
We truly enjoyed our catering time at the Five Bridge Inn. We look forward to returning soon.
