Absolutely perfect, we wouldn't hesitate to use again!
Our experience was absolutely perfect! We signed a contract with APC pre-COVID and ultimately decided to downsize our wedding and move it from Southern Maryland to Northern Virginia. The change was seamless and APC was incredibly accommodating. In fact, we enjoyed working with them so much that we decided to cancel our original Rehearsal Dinner plans and had them cater our rehearsal instead of going out to a restaurant. Stacy Beales, our event designer, was incredible to work with from start to finish. She was so responsive and on top of every detail. We rented a lot of specialty rentals (tables, chairs, glassware, etc.) and she coordinated every detail for us flawlessly. The on site catering captain, Lisa, was a delight and the catering staff and bartenders were incredible. They were so kind and left our venue (my parent's house) in perfect condition at the end of each night. As for the food - it was DELICIOUS! The filet was definitely the most popular choice and everyone raved about it. It was cooked to perfection. The appetizers were adorable and delicious - we loved the tenderloin blinis, pretzel chicken poppers, and crab cakes! For the rehearsal we did a charcuterie spread and Italian buffet, which were also delicious. Everything was presented beautifully. I can't wait to find a way to use APC again in the future!

Absolutely Perfect Catering was Absolutely Perfect!
Due to Covid-19 our son’s wedding plans changed from 150 people at a large venue in VA Beach to 25 guests in our back yard in Maryland. We had 2 ½ weeks to plan the wedding. We found Absolutely Perfect Catering on-line. We were a bit nervous using a caterer that we did not know however they truly lived up to their name. Everything went perfectly. The team was amazing. We could not have asked for a better group of professional, kind, and attentive individuals. Everyone raved about the food. The chef Stanley did an awesome job. It was so delicious. The bartender, Mike, was right on top of it with ensuring the bride and groom had water to hydrate and a drink in hand. He was very quick with serving the drinks, champagne and even right on queue with the shots that were taken during the ceremony. The servers, Patty and Kenny, were perfect. They came around multiple times to make sure everyone was offered appetizers. Dinner was served as soon as the toasts ended, and they checked in several times to see that everyone had what they needed. They made sure that the candles were lit before the ceremony and relit them several times as the breeze blew them out. Everything I asked for was carried out without any issues. Marianne, the lead person, was incredible. She ensured everything ran smoothly from the time they arrived till the last item was cleaned up. She even jumped in to take the bride and groom’s puppy (groomsman) into the house when he started to bark during the ceremony. She was so easy to talk to and very attentive to all our needs. I knew as soon as I met her that all the guests would love her and her team. I cannot thank them enough for making the day so special. All the guests, and especially the bride and groom, commented several times about the awesome food and incredible staff. I was a bit nervous when I first called to book Absolutely Perfect Catering since they were new to me but from the start when I spoke with Lori I could see how focused she was on providing exceptional customer service which made me pretty confident that the rest of the team would be as amazing as her. I was not disappointed at all. As a matter of fact, I could not have been happier. It was the perfect day!Sent on 07/14/2020

Absolutely was a preferred caterer of our venues and I am so happy they were! Lori was very responsive and they were able to accommodate some customize menu requests and pricing was very reasonable compared to other caterers I spoke with. They day of the servers were wonderful - attentive and kind, they checked in with me regularly and were happy to help with anything we asked. The food was DELICIOUS! We never got to sample anything prior to the wedding as we live states away so I was a tad nervous about how everything would taste but I need not have worried. The hors d'oeuvres were delicious - guests especially loved the mini cheeseburgers, candied bacon and mini grilled cheese. They also raved about the salad, mac and cheese, pork and chicken/waffles we had for dinner. We also had a hot chocolate bar with dessert that was such a fun touch that many guests enjoyed. Overall it was a wonderful experience working with them and I would highly recommend.Sent on 10/18/2020
Absolutely Perfect leaves no detail untouched. Their operation is a well-oiled machine, and we were thoroughly impressed with their organization. On top of that, the food is delicious and creative, and the staff is friendly and eager to help. We love when Absolutely Perfect comes to the Annapolis Maritime Museum!
One word...yummy!!!!! I love when I get the chance to eat Absolutely Perfect Catering's food at an event. It is unique, creatively displayed, and really well made! I highly recommend them!
Anytime we hear that our customers have chosen Absolutely Perfect as their caterer, we grin ear to ear! They treat our customers and venue with such professionalism and charm.
