Food Trucks Catering Weddings/Bat Mitzvahs

If you thought that food truck thing was soooo 2010, it apparently still has some legs:
Amy Maureen Yee had all the trappings of a Brooklyn wedding. An off-white lace dress that was a remake of a vintage gown. Bundles of tulips grown by her and the groom.

And food trucks serving huaraches, schnitzel and dumplings on paper plates.

"We started to look at traditional caterers and the costs were just crazy," said Ms. Yee, who got married last month in the Green Building in Carroll Gardens. For a third of the price she hired three food trucks instead.
They say that many food trucks derive as much as half their income from catering, and I gotta say a food truck does seem perfectly suited for the task... as long as the guests don't mind paper plates.
