    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.

    Great food, great people. A wonderful choice.

    We had a wonderful experience working with Birchtree. COVID delayed our wedding but Birchtree was quick to help us reschedule and maintained great communication when we resumed planning. Our guests loved the food (they even brought us a plate of apps so we didn't go without!), Allegra was the perfect Day-Of Coordinator, and she and Spencer made the planning process easy. I'd recommend them to anyone getting married in the Philly area.

    A magical, stress-free wedding thanks to Birchtree!

    Mouth-watering food, incredible organization, and record-setting response times – we couldn’t have asked for more from our catering team. Spencer, Allegra, and the entire Birchtree team were the reason that our wedding was a smash hit! We had a difficult time with our wedding arrangements from the start (our first venue dropped our contract, and Birchtree helped us to find a second venue within two weeks – then the whole pandemic reschedule nightmare of 2020…). The only reason we felt comfortable that things would work out when they got difficult was the optimistic, above-and-beyond support that we received from this team. As we also had a pandemic baby before our wedding reception, we truly couldn’t have done it without Spencer, who was able to help us plan all of the little details that we didn’t have the brain power to think about in the new-baby haze. And I haven’t even gotten to the food – I got so many compliments on the thoughtful touches, the delicious apps, the cheese board, and the dinner: the family-style dining was a huge hit, and the pumpkin gnocchi and roasted chicken were the best I’ve ever had. You truly cannot go wrong with this team, and I credit them with our wedding being a completely stress-free party where everyone had a fantastic time (and as the bride and groom, they ensured that we got to eat our fill!). If I could give 50 stars, this team earned them!

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.
