A New Year’s Eve Wedding Celebration at Drumthwacket in Princeton

Sited on the land that witnessed the 1777 Princeton battle for American independence, today Drumthwacket is the the official residence of the Governor of New Jersey. This New Year’s eve, historic Drumthwacket was the setting for an elegant wedding and we at Max Hansen Caterer were fortunate to be selected to do the cooking.

For the cocktail hour we prepared a selection of tasty passed hors d’oeuvres some of which are pictured below. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous buffet and then danced the night away as they, along with the newlywed couple brought in the New Year in fine style. We wish you all a Happy New Year in 2015!
