You know normally, we’re the ones reaching out to the fab peeps in the Philly wedding industry to get their take on things; to ask them to provide solutions to wedding-planning stumpers, to chat about their favorite things, or whatever else we’re talking about over here on PW.

Well this week, someone turned the tables on us, and this time it was me yapping away about all the things I love about weddings in Philadelphia!

5 Favorite Things With Philly Caterer Jeffrey A. Miller

When Jeffrey Miller was a sophomore at Penn, he started a catering business right out of his dorm room: “$5.50 for fresh-squeezed OJ, champagne, Eggs Benedict, strawberries with Grand Marnier and coffee—what a deal!” he says of his early days in the business.

Now, it’s 35 years later, and Jeffrey A. Miller Catering turns out 400 weddings a year at their 10 exclusive venues; if you’ve attended a wedding or event at the Racquet Club, Lake House Inn or Aldie Mansion, for starters, then you’ve experienced JAM Catering for yourself.

And so, we caught up with Mr. Miller to ask him about what he’s loving right now, from the thing he’s most proud of when it comes to JAM venues, to what he craves when he’s not eating his own food.

PW Reader Ring: Jodie & Albert!

Jodie's ring!

Jodie’s ring!

The couple: Jodie Saueraker and Albert Riccelli, III, Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is a family heirloom on Ccelli’s mother’s side. The original white-gold ring had a blue stone in it, which he had removed and replaced with a round diamond, and he also added small diamonds on the sides. (His mother then had the original blue stone set into a necklace for my “something blue” to wear at the wedding!) He took the original ring to DeBear’s & Co. Jewelers in Sewell to rework it into my engagement ring.
