In many ways, Unique Unlimited Weddings is a fresh start for chef Tony Wilkins. He learned how to cook in his grandparents' kitchen as a child and honed his skills while working for the catering company that his mother and aunt ran in the mid-1970s. Although they had to close their business to take care of their families and Tony went on to get a degree in electronics engineering, his love for cooking never faded. After years of feeling out of place in engineering, chef Tony took a cue from the past and reopened his mother's business. Today, he takes on catering projects big and small, assisting hosts by creating rich feasts, custom-designed cakes, and decorative centerpieces.
