The absolute BEST. 10/10 book them now!!!

When we first started planning our wedding, my (now) Husband knew he wanted 2Shea to cater since he had gone to a wedding where they were serving and he loved the food. We knew the food was going to be amazing, but what we didn't know was how important this team would be on our actual wedding day. We worked with Deanna, she quickly sent us over all of our options, answered all of our questions, and brought up a lot of things we didn't think of ourselves during the planning process. The pricing was very reasonable! We ended up going with the open bar, butler pass bites for cocktail hour along with a grazing table, three options for entree, and an awesome dessert spread. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked, cut like butter, and was delicious. The chicken marsala and gnocchi with pesto parmesan sauce were equally perfect and full of flavor. We can't say enough how perfect everything was from bar service, to cocktail hour right through to dessert. Our guests had the best things to say.

The reason we were so in love with 2Shea was because of the people. Deanna basically turned into our wedding planner and is just the absolute best person. We ended up having to cancel our original wedding and turn it into a backyard wedding all within 2 weeks. My Father was very sick and would not have made it to our original wedding day. When I told Deanna, she assured me they would be there and that my wedding day would be perfect. She assured me my menu could be the same even though we were no longer at a venue. Myself and my family were actually away on vacation when we found out we needed to do this, so Deanna and Ed actually went to my house and scoped out to see how they could set up and make my original menu work. They went above and beyond in the short time period they had. They turned my garage into their catering space, they turned my pool house into a bar, our patio into a cocktail hour area, they worked with the hills on our property, and all with smiles and reassurance that it would be perfect. It was more than perfect. Our backyard wedding turned out to be the best thing that could have happened for us. I had no idea what my wedding day would look like and I had a million things on my mind in those two weeks, but because of this team and all the hard work they put in, I didn't have to worry. My wedding would not have been as incredible as it was without them. Myself, my husband, and my family are forever grateful for their flexibility and kindness.

If you are between caterers, don't think twice. Food is one of the biggest things people remember about the wedding, and 2Shea is worth it!! Thank you Deanna, thank you Ed, and thank you to the rest of the team that was just amazing. From the bottom of our hearts.

I wish I had more pictures of the food, but here they are carrying our wedding cake down a hill to get it to us, and Deanna and I hugging when I first saw her, which I was definitely crying like a baby because I love her so much.

A+ service and food

The staff helped with everything. They assisted with decorating and packing up at the end of the night. The passed hors’douvres were delicious and plentiful. Champagne was served immediately after the ceremony and was delicious. The bar was well stocked. All three meals were complimented by our guests. We were thrilled with 2Shea.

Outstanding!

Where to start……2Shea exceeded our expectations… professional, easy to work with, with top notch food and staff. We couldn’t be happier and couldn’t have imagined this day with anyone else. Deanna and Catherine went above and beyond to make this day absolutely seamless and so very beautiful. I would highly recommend 2Shea for any event!! Thank you to all that were part of our special day!!!
