Shanna and team were AMAZING

Wow is all I can say! Shanna was just absolutely incredible to work with. Her confidence and patience was just what I needed throughout the wedding planning process and day of wedding. She was always willing to work with us, we were constantly going back and forth on things and she was so patient. She was always willing to hop on a call with us no matter what time or day it was. Bayou did our rehearsal and ceremony catering, and I am not exaggerating when I say everything was perfect from the taste of the food to the logistics of both events. Her team was also hard working, pleasant, reassuring, nice, happy, and just overall great to work with. The day of was so stressful, and I remember running into Shanna a couple of times throughout the night and just feeling a sense of relief and happiness seeing her face and feeling her positive, kind energy. I would recommend Bayou to anyone for any event, they were absolutely amazing, and played a huge part in making our wedding weekend so perfect!

Amazingly easy experience

We used Bayou Bluegrass for our wedding and rehearsal dinner and it was such a hit! The food was AMAZING and the service was spot on. Our friends and family were seriously impressed with the food! They even surprised us the day of our wedding and threw in a couple of side dishes that we didn鈥檛 order. Allison was in contact the week before the wedding to finalize details, which eased my stress a ton. I ended up adjusting the guest count the week of and adding on an extra hour to the bar which was no problem at all. The bartender and drinks were awesome as well! You have to get in and check out one of their tasting events. 10/10 recommend!!
