    Best food ever!

    The Bayou Bluegrass catering team was perfect! The food is absolutely amazing, and they made adjustments for me when needed! working with them was very easy and non-stressful, they handled everything in a professional way and provided great food and table placements for our wedding. They even found a "ranch fountain" for me to use at the wedding which was very important to me! I would give them many more stars if possible!

    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!

    Clean plates all around!

    Allison was very helpful throughout the whole planning process, she was easy to get a hold of and always would respond in a timely manner. We were unable to attend a group tasting due to our schedules, but she set up an individual tasting for us to try the food and set our wedding day menu. We were thrilled with the amount of options we had for our plated meal. They were prepped and set up the day before and had an excellent and friendly staff of waiters and waitresses. Our wedding guests absolutely devoured their food, no joke, many said that was the best wedding meal they had ever had. We served the tri-tip, marinated chicken breast, the twice baked potato and green beans. Seriously, Bayou Bluegrass knocked this one out of the park. Thank you Allison for all of your help.

    Thank you for your kind review. We are thrilled we could help relieve the stress of your big day and please you and your guest in the process! Congratulations again!
