    Everything we hoped for and so much more! Hands down a highlight of our entire wedding.

    Working with Big Tree was an absolute dream! We wanted as close to a farm-to-table, locavore experience as possible for our wedding, and Big Tree was able to provide this and so much more. They were so lovely to work with from the very beginning, and made us feel at ease and in good hands throughout the process. They were extremely personable, fun to work with, as well as professional. We felt so connected to their team by the end of the process! They went above and beyond to tailor their catering to our vision and to our dietary restriction needs. We wanted food to be a central component of our celebration, and it totally was. Everything was absolute perfection! On top of all of that, they were amazing about coordinating beverages, including a list of natural wines we wanted to include. All around just an incredible experience and we, and our guests, are still talking about the food 6 months later.

    Best Wedding Food and Service of All Time!

    Hiring Big Tree Catering was the best wedding planning decision we made. We got married in September and every time I'm with friends who attending our wedding they talk about how amazing the food was. We have a framed photo of the lobster rolls served during our cocktail hour hanging in our kitchen. We got married on our friends farm and Big Tree customized our wedding menu to highlight farm produce. We had such a beautiful farm-to-table family-style dinner - it was a highlight of the wedding. Not only was the food amazing, but the Big Tree team was wonderful to work with. Amy is a rockstar. I cannot recommend Big Tree enough. Book them, now!

    Best food at a wedding I've ever had!

    We made the best decision ever to go with Big Tree Catering! They were so easy to work with, had such an amazing time test tasting the food, and the day of wedding could not have gone any better. I had so many guests come up to me to say how friendly the bartenders and servers were, and we received comments from guests that it was the best food at any wedding they ever went to (and we were the last of our friends to get married, so they had been to a lot of weddings!) The food was unique, delicious and beautifully displayed. We did not have a wedding cake, and went with their assorted desserts. People were obsessed and ate them up so fast. We even did a late night taco bar for our after party that was a huge success! Big Tree not only delivers the best quality in food, but they are unique, and have such a cool sense of style and design. I could not recommend them enough!!!
