    Great Catering, Highly Professional Service

    Blue Elephant catered our wedding at the Portland Masonic, and to a large extent acted as the wedding coordinator. The food was excellent and they were easy to work with throughout the planning process. Most importantly, the day of the event, when problems arose with other vendors, these guys stepped in and went above and beyond to make problems go away. These guys are pros and the type of people you want running the show during an important event.
    Thanks so much!

    We highly recommend Blue Elephant!

    Fausto and his team at Blue Elephant were amazing!

    They pulled off three flawless events over four days for our wedding (rehearsal dinner, reception, and brunch). He has a great team that has worked with him for years and everyone was very nice and professional. They take the extra steps to make sure that everything is just right and were very organized in their approach to the day – showing up early in the day and getting everything ready well in advance. They also did a great job of cleaning up their space and leaving everything just as they found it.

    Most importantly, the food was delicious. Our rehearsal dinner was more traditional food, but for our wedding we decided to go with a Latin menu. They can do it all and everyone commented that they really enjoyed the food. The dinner was also executed flawlessly (for over 180 people) and they made sure that everyone got fed in a timely manner.

    Fausto was also fantastic to work with as we were planning our wedding. He made multiple trips to visit the location of our wedding and was very accommodating in his schedule (visiting with us on weekends – important since we lived out of state). He has great ideas and was very helpful in translating what we wanted into reality. One example of this was the set up of the tent. He helped us map out long Tuscan style tables and coordinated a simple but very tastful lighting plan. When we look back at the pictures from the day the tent was absolutely stunning and his input was a big part of that.

    As we met people that could be our day of coordinator, we wanted someone that would listen to us and help execute our vision, but that could also take charge and make things happen on the day of. Fausto fit this role perfectly. He is attentive and supportive, but he also has no problem running the show and making sure all of the vendors are where they need to be. This allowed us to enjoy our day.

    We were very impressed with Blue Elephant and would highly recommend them (and we already have)!

    Beyond expectations. Blue Elephant defines perfection

    Blue Elephant was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for our wedding. They were professional, helpful, easy to talk to and worked above and beyond to making our vision come true. Reuben was absolute joy to work with and I couldn't imagine my wedding without them. You would never regret you decision by choosing them and If I had to do it all over again I would call them again right away.
