Wow. all I can say is wow. Alison made all my dreams come true.

Let's start at the beginning. River Farm, our venue, gave us a list of wedding caterers to choose from. I contacted 5 or 6 before contacting Purple Onion. The other caterers either blew us off or didn't respond because of budget was too low for them (and believe me, it was pretty high compared to national averages...DC is expensive!)

Alison made us a custom proposal of 3 price ranges so we could choose what we wanted. My family insisted on the cream of the crop so we went with full service everything. We had passed and plated appetizers, plated salad, and family style dinner (which was a HUGE HIT). So many people came up and said it was the best food they've ever had a at a wedding. Here was our menu: hummus bar, lots of little goodies for appetizers (fried mushrooms, goat cheese balls). Salad: watermelon and feta cheese, entrees: goat cheese stuffed salmon and short ribs, pasta, veggies etc.

Purple onion also made our wedding cake - carrot cake and chocolate with raspberry filling.

I can't stress enough how happy we were with the food, but thats just 50% of it. The other 50% was ALISON who made all of my vision come through. From the table settings, to the details like vintage utensils, a shimmery peach table cloth, and the organization of the whole tented dining room. She remembered everything i wanted and just GOT ME. We clicked from the moment we met. She was honestly the only person at the wedding who I didn't have to give strong direction to. She knew what I wanted!!

I'm just so happy and blessed I went with Purple Onion. The servers were professional and FRIENDLY. They brought me snacks and drinks while my husband and I were whisked away to take a thousand pictures (sometimes begrudgingly haha). Seriously, get in touch with Alison, you won't regret it!
