The Newest 2019 Trend in Weddings: Specialty Cocktail Catering

On today’s episode ofThe Forever Bride Show,Ashley Hawks of Forever Bride talks with Simeon Priest, owner ofEqual Parts Cocktail Companyabout the importance of having good cocktail catering. You will never want to over look your bar again after hearing all about this new trend! Listen in for the must do’s for your wedding.


My name is Simeon Priest, I’m a father to an incredible 6 month old boy, husband to the most caring mother I’ve ever seen, and lifelong service industry veteran.

I’ve been in every aspect of the restaurant industry since the summer I turned 16. From slinging gyros at the State Fair, to busser, host, barback, server, cook, bartender, manager, beverage director. Let me tell you”¦there’s nothing quite like bartending. It’s tough to beat the experience of truly seeing someone wowed, and put at-ease with the simple act of spoiling them with service, good food, and cared for beverages.

A good bar is the beating heart of every event. Far too often is this aspect of the event overlooked and dwindled down to a mere afterthought.

Think about the flow of a wedding – the bar at cocktail hour is likely the first stop your guests will make. The quality of that interaction can set the tone for the whole night. We strongly believe that the days of letting that truly important tone-setting experience also be the afterthought of the entire planning process are over”¦and we’re here to make that transition seamless.

The beverage experience can only be as good as the people planning it, and later, the people executing it. We are career bartenders dedicated to the craft of the cocktail, the fundamental elements of hospitality, and the use of REAL ingredients. We absolutely love to work closely with brides, grooms and event planners, and schedule tastings so that the entire process is curated and EXACTLY what our guests want and desire.

I sincerely enjoy sharing time with people on some of the happiest occasions of their lives. Raising the bar, and making their beverage experience unforgettable is our specialty.

  1. Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
