Thrilled with the food & service!!

We were planning a wedding at a vineyard in Nelson County, VA but live in Raleigh, NC. Not being from the area we didn’t have anyone to ask for recommendations. When searching online, we found that most options in the area were either BBQ (too informal for what we were looking for) or French gourmet (too formal for what we wanted.) We found Autumn’s Custom Catering on the wedding planning website, Zola, and then did some research on them. The menu choices were just what we were looking for, and reasonably priced. We reached out to Claudine, the owner and I’m so thankful they were available for our wedding day, 10/29/2022. Even though they’re based in Richmond, they were willing to make the drive to our venue (for a very reasonable price). The food was AMAZING. We chose ham, lasagna, and chicken marsala, along with veggies. Everything was served family style, and the servers who helped were all so wonderful and attentive. Since the meal came with a variety of cupcakes, we opted to have just a small wedding cake made by a friend to cut, and served the guests the cupcakes. They were so delicious! My mother’s favorite cake is carrot cake, but she is *very* particular about her carrot cake. Most are simply spice cake with some carrot flakes in it. My mom loved the carrot cake cupcakes. And the chicken was so tender, you didn’t need a knife to cut it. Claudine and her servers got all the centerpieces set out for us as well as the table settings. Everything was just perfect. They also packed up all the leftovers and labeled them so we could take them home. She even included a lovely goodie bag just for my husband and I to take back to our hotel. I highly recommend Claudine and Autumn’s Custom Catering.

Wedding 8/6/23

Autumn’s Catering company catered my wedding on 8/6/2023. The food was amazing and flavorful. The cocktail hour and dessert display were beautiful. I especially loved the various types of cheeses for the cocktail hours. The customer service was outstanding, everyone was so friendly and helpful. I loved the care and kindness everyone on the team had for us making sure all the details were perfect from the food displays to helping fluff my dress before I walked down the aisle. The bartenders also did an amazing job making the signature drinks. My family and I enjoyed everything. Thank you so much, we truly appreciate it. I will definitely hire Autumn’s Catering for my next event.

I rate this vendor as top notch--5 stars across the board for fabulous food,phenomenal service and reasonable pricing.

I live in New Hampshire and was helping my niece,who lives in Virginia ,plan her wedding. After extensive research of caterers we chose Autumn Catering and am I glad we did.Thier menu options were amazing.We chose the charcuterie board,shrimp cocktail and meatballs marinara for appetizers and for the main course we chose pulled pork,roasted chicken and a primerib carving station with all of the sides. Desserts were seasonal desserts and a chocolate fountain.Autumn Catering was wonderful to work with from choosing the menu to making the entire night perfect. The food was fabulous,the service phenomenal and the price was very reasonable.

Claudine,the owner and her staff were amazing even helping us setup the decor at the inn and taking care of the bride and groom throughout the evening.

I give them 5 stars across the board--you can't do any better than Autumn Catering!
