Amazing Airbnb wedding! Beautiful, stress-free, delicious

I hired Art catering for multiple dinner and breakfast events over our wedding weekend at an Airbnb beach house in Ocean Isle. We catered buffet food, bar, dessert, tables, chairs, linens, servers, and bartenders. I planned everything from Denver, CO which I was nervous about until I found Art catering. I’m SOOO happy I chose them, I can’t say enough good things. If you are planning a destination wedding or large event, this is the pick!!

First, the planning was very easy. Rosemary and team were always responsive and available if I had questions. We had a final call with the owner, Terry, to catch anything that we forgot. They went above and beyond, not only making suggestions about food and drink but also about flow of the event and how to make guests feel comfortable.

The event itself was flawless. The tables, chairs and linens were waiting for us when we arrived. The servers and bartenders did their own setup, constantly monitored tables and guests for empty dishes/glasses, kept the areas clean, and were generally extremely courteous and helpful to our guests. As the bride, my glass was always full and they made me plates of food when I didn’t have time. Rosemary came over to check on things herself. Plus, the food was delicious!!! We got the crab stuffed grouper, ribeye, and pulled pork BBQ for all the nights. We also did a signature drink and a la carte mini desserts.

Someone came everyday to replace our linens for clean ones. After each event, they left the area neat and cleaned up. We also got to keep our leftovers for anyone who was hungry between meals.

Truly, this was the best catering experience I’ve ever had. Our wedding was smooth and fun because of it. All of our guests commented. We hired a day-of wedding coordinator to help (which I also highly recommend). Overall, I would hire Art catering again in a heartbeat!!

Friendly, efficient and professional. They answered all of my questions and provided top service. The food was delicious and the cakes were amazing!

Art Catering were hired to cater our wedding reception. They worked with me to chose a variety of foods to serve to our guests. All of the guests said the food was delicious. It didn’t taste like typical wedding reception food but was more delicious than I had hoped. The chicken Marsala was creamy, the shrimp and grits had big shrimp that were fantastic. The multiple cakes for the reception were amazing! The carrot cake, coconut cake and Oreo cakes were so good that guests were getting 2-3 slices.
I can easily recommend Art Catering as they were easy to work with and everything was delicious.
