    They made our wedding day perfect!

    Blue Elephant is absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I cannot thank Blue Elephant enough for making our wedding so incredibly special ❤️

    During the planning process, Fausto was extremely communicative, helpful, and supportive in our conversations. He gave a number of suggestions, which we used to make our wedding as beautiful as we could have ever imagined.

    On the wedding day, Fausto and his team made my husband and I feel incredibly special. They consistently checked in with us to make sure we were feeling comfortable and happy. Before walking down the aisle, a lovely team member helped me with scrubbing out dirt that had gotten on my dress while taking pictures prior to the ceremony, and she even offered to bustle my dress before our first dance.

    Fausto was attentive and supportive through major events. He helped our wedding party with timing cues while walking down the aisle, reminded us of key transitions throughout the night, and was there to take my bouquet during our first dance. Fausto and his team paid attention to details like this throughout the entire day — and it is the reason our wedding flowed like a dream!

    And the FOOD!!! We had an all vegan/vegetarian wedding and my guests are STILL talking about how amazing the food was! (It truly gets brought up to us by someone at least once a week haha). The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully plated. This was one of the major highlights for our guests!

    Blue Elephant made our wedding an absolute dream. We are happy beyond words with their phenomenal service and incredibly grateful to Blue Elephant’s kind, caring, hardworking team.

    We highly recommend Blue Elephant’s services to anyone! They will make your special day THAT much more memorable!

    Amazing to Work With - Highly Recommend

    I highly recommend Blue Elephant for wedding catering. Jessica and her team could not have been better to work with - so kind, communicative, organized, adaptable, punctual, talented. They worked with us to create the perfect wedding menu that was within our means and captured our vision. They were so patient and understanding while we finalized these details. I really appreciated their attentiveness to allergies/accommodations. The catering staff was beyond friendly and polite at our wedding, and everything went SO smoothly. Cannot thank you enough for working with us and for your help executing a perfect day!

    Great food and so much more

    We hired Blue Elephant for my daughters wedding. The food was amazing - both the appetizers and the dinner. (Particularly recommend the Pulled Pork Sliders and the Beef Short Ribs). The servers, as well as the coordinators (Owners), did a great job making sure the wedding party ate and drank during the hectic picture time. This company also does wedding planning and while we did not hire them for this service it is clear that by doing this they are able to see every detail and make sure everything runs as smooth as possible. Many thanks.
