Food trucks are right at the juncture of casual and sophisticated, especially in terms of gourmet ingredients. If that matches your wedding vision, consider hiring a truck for your reception. The Richmond area has numerous options (peruse for more ideas), but here are three we endorse.

Pizza Tonight
Long lines for these wood-fired pies tell the tale at food truck courts at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and the Virginia Historical Society. Pizza Tonight offers unusual (and brilliant) topping combinations, and its catering menu also includes salads, starters and desserts.

Mrs. Yoder’s Donuts
There’s no sweeter way to send off your wedding guests than with Mrs. Yoder’s crisp-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside sourdough doughnuts, which have reached legendary status at the South of the James farmers market.

King of Pops
These are sophisticated popsicles: Chocolate with sea salt, lemon basil and thai tea are among the flavors. One of their catering packages includes a personalized message stamped on the stick — how cute is that?
