“Who can two event professionals, known for green meetings, hire to cater their wedding? After a rigorous selection process, there was one answer: Crave Catering. Not only did we require impeccable service, we also wanted local, sustainable, delicious food. Guests still rave about the incredible meal and service. Crave’s creativity and attention to detail made our wedding absolutely PERFECT.” – Nancy J. (Wilson) Zavada and Robert Zavada

I am so pleased with our choice to work with Crave Catering for our Wedding. We even snagged Jessica Schantz as our Day Of Coordinator. We chose Crave for their sustainable practices, their garden fresh menu and their delicious recipes. Our guests LOVED the seasonal fare and were so pleased at how Crave created options for every diet. The staff was attentive, yet out of the way. The tables looked pristine and set up exactly as I imagined. The best thing I could have asked for was not to have to lift a finger, notice a mistake or see anything awry... and I got all three! Crave was super flexible with our wish to provide our own desserts and hired bar. They also were very gracious in dealing with my endless changing mind in the weeks before the wedding.
I TRULY enjoyed working with Jessica as well. Being the control freak that I am, I was hesitant about hiring a wedding planner, since most of the details I was creating myself. Jessica offered her services as our Day Of Coordinator. She worked with me for all the vendor coordination and was also always present for walkthroughs at the venue. She and my bridesmaids set up the event FLAWLESSLY! In fact better than I imagined. Jessica kept the event schedule on track from start to finish and coordinated the breakdown from the venue as well. A class work all around!
