    Unparalleled service

    We cannot say enough good things about working with Birchtree for our wedding. From the beginning, we were impressed with their ratings, ethical treatment of their employees, and commitment to sustainability. But it was the service that blew us away, and really made our wedding phenomenal. Working with Spencer was one of the highlights of our year of planning -- we can't say enough good things about him, and he truly went above and beyond at every stage. His seamless day-of coordination -- not just of the catering, but really of the entire wedding (processional, music, dessert delivery, etc.) -- kept us all calm, and he even found time to dance with us during the reception. The rest of the staff was also incredible (shout out to Keenan for entertaining our nieces all day, and to the wait staff who caught, mid-cocktail hour, a previously missed allergy and proceeded to alter their entree without missing a beat). The food was fantastic -- local, fresh, delicious, and hot!! Yes, we spent more on our catering than we intended, but it was absolutely money well-spent (and the service and coordination saved us money elsewhere). Thank you to the entire Birchtree Team!!

    Couldn't imagine our wedding day with Birchtree!

    Working with Birchtree was an absolute delight! From the initial inquiry email all the way through to the wedding day, every interaction was professional, friendly, and helpful. Spencer was our point of contact and I honestly do not know how I would've made it through this experience without him. In addition to guiding through the catering process, he also served as a day-of coordinator and helped with setup, linens/tables, run of show, etc etc. We had last-minute cancellations and table changes due to COVID, and Spencer ensured that everything was taken care of and not stressful for us.

    All of our guests raved about how delicious the food at our wedding was! They were also very accommodating of dietary restrictions and allergies, and had a great variety of options to choose from. Their menus are seasonal, and everything was very fresh! The servers and bartenders were super friendly and knowledgeable.

    Beyond the service and food, we just genuinely connected with Spencer. He acted as a host to our guests, he made sure we were fed and taken care of during the day, he advocated for us when we needed a moment to ourselves. So much so that our photographer asked at the end of the night if Spencer was a friend of ours and if we wanted a photo together.

    Birchtree, thank you so much for making the wedding of our dreams come true!

    The team at Birchtree was absolutely amazing. We couldn't have picked a better vendor to cater our wedding. They made my wedding day flawless and I didn't have to worry about a single thing. Their team took care of everything.

    The food was spectacular!! All of our guests were very impressed with the apps, plated dinners and various other snacks that were provided throughout the night. People were raving about the food for days.

    The staff is very personable and accommodating. They went far beyond the expectations I had from the start. I highly recommend them.

Owner

Birchtree has been my baby since 2008. You'll find me popping up at tastings and weddings, making sure everything is going well with our clients and team. I love this company and its mission to stay small, sustainable, and good for people, planet and profit equally. We've learned so much about our sourcing and waste options over the years, and I think we're the top sustainable caterer in Philadelphia. The good news is that we take food and service just as seriously, and our clients and their guests are just happy to be taken care of, fed an outstanding meal, and able to enjoy their wedding day.
