Best wedding + event caterers!
My husband and I had our wedding at Huntington Bay Club on October 9, 2020. It was the most MAGICAL day - thanks to 24 Carrots and the Huntington Bay Team.
Leading up to our wedding day, the planning was quite simple! We toured the venue and locked in a contract. Shelby kept constant communication with us and accommodated all of our requests.
Shelby met the girls first thing the morning of our event to make sure we were all settled and ready for the day. She checked in periodically and made sure her team had everything handled per the diagrams and orders we locked in prior.
Not only was the set-up and decor 5 Star, but the food was 5 Star too!
At cocktail hour, we offered tray passed Vegetable Crudites, Roquefort Cheese Puff Pastry's (YUM!), Teriyaki Chicken Skewers, and Ahi Tuna Tartare Tacos. We decided to offer a buffet dinner for ease of service and to create a casual experience for our guests! We selected the Luau Buffet which included: baby spinach salad with mandarin oranges, macaroni salad (upgrade), Hawaiian rolls, tender slow-braised short ribs, ginger soy glazed salmon, jasmine rice, and Asian stir-fried vegetables! Dinner was SOOOO AMAZING and our guests are still talking about it. (Absolutely delicious!)
After dinner, we opened up dancing & offered late night snacks and dessert. We had a Nitrogen Ice Cream station which was a total hit! Not only was there ice cream (the bride's favorite), but it offered a little show too! On a beautiful station, we offered mini cheesecake bites, strawberry eclairs, dark chocolate mousse cups and mango-lime parfaits. In addition to dessert, we offered tray passed mini corndogs, onion rings and grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters.
WE WERE IN AW WITH HOW GOOD THE FOOD WAS! I have worked in the event industry providing food and beverage at multiple resorts and so expectations were high. The food provided at our menu tasting was EXACTLY what was provided at our wedding and so there were no surprises.
We appreciate the team at 24 Carrots so much and hope to work with them again in the future!
Thank you all so much for your dedication to the Five Star Experience!

With 24 Carrots, there's always a way!
Planning a wedding in 2020 is not for the faint of heart. But my husband and I were determined to keep our date, and 24 Carrots made that happened. I truly don't think we would have been able to have our special day, had it not been for Sarah and the rest of the 24 Carrots team.Sent on 07/22/2020
Every phone call we got in the months leading up to our wedding was pretty much filled with bad news, unless they were from Sarah. She was as determined to make our wedding happen as we were, which was both calming and encouraging. She made any necessary changes and adaptions on her end, and was extremely accommodating as we made many changes on our end. Through many tears of spring 2020, I always got off the phone with Sarah smiling.
Whether you are planning an adjusted Covid ceremony, or a full blown wedding down the road, the 24 Carrots team will be there to support you and make your dreams come true!

Delicious wedding food
We had our wedding at The Colony House, a 24 Carrots venue. The food was amazing and the service was excellent! The menu options are virtually limitless with 24 Carrots. They truly do amazing work. Many of our guests told us how much they liked the food we served and we agree! The staff was very friendly and we had our own waiter assigned to us to make sure we got to eat and had drinks. Before we sat down at our sweetheart table, they had delivered our drinks and hors oeuvres. They brought our food out at the very beginning of dinner service to ensure we got to enjoy it. Very tasty! Highly recommended!Sent on 05/25/2020
