    Look No Further! They Do It All!!!

    I have been planning weddings in the Boston market for 10+ years and as a Type A, self-diagnosed control freak, I was genuinely concerned with how I was going to "Let It Go" on the wedding day and truly be in the moment to enjoy every second. But, thanks to Fausto and his entire team I did!!!

    Blue Elephant Catering came highly recommended by a caterer I work with often in Boston. I booked them before ever tasting their food and honestly (the control freak in me) was nervous. HOWEVER, the moment we stepped foot into the tasting room all of my concerns were put to rest. The food was AMAZING!!!

    Then, in the weeks leading up to the wedding we threw a crazy idea at Fausto... everyone in our family / friend circle often jokes about how much my husband enjoys McDonalds so we wanted to serve McDonalds fries and chicken nuggets as a late night snack... Fausto didn't skip a beat and quickly embraced the idea helping us figure out just how to make it happen.

    Thanks to Fausto & the Blue Elephant team I was TRULY able to forget about the wedding details/plans and enjoy the day, all of our guests enjoyed the most delicious (Blue Elephant Catering) meal, and we all were seriously WOWed by the most elegant (haha yes!) display of McDonalds chicken nuggets and fries to cap the night!

    Like I said, I have been doing this for a longgg time and truly think that Blue Elephant Catering is the best of the best! Thank you so much Fausto!!!!

    Beyond comparison - a perfect day!

    We had only heard good things about Blue Elephant from the get go. They were responsive from the start, accommodating, and helped work with us on every single detail. The pre-wedding process was of course fun with lots of things to do but, they helped us navigate the planning, timeline, and event to perfection. When our day came, there was no stress. Everything had been worked out, the whole team was amazingly professional (Dominique killed it as our coordinator), food was fantastic (even some guests who are chefs themselves sang their praises), and everyone had an amazing time. Could not have had such an amazing day without them. Thankful to have had such a great coordinator bring our vision to life.

    We highly recommend working with Reuben!

    We worked with Reuben as our catering coordinator and our day-of coordinator, and we can’t recommend him highly enough! We did the bulk of the planning ourselves, and we felt so lucky to have Reuben as a reference and sounding board. He helped guide us through the process and was happy to offer help. He is unshakably calm, which was totally key in helping us relax throughout planning and in the days before the wedding.

    He is so experienced and took the time to get to know us, which meant that he helped us focus on what was important for our day. He has an incredible rolodex of other professionals in the area - most of our vendors were recommendations from him, and we loved working with every single one. We told him we wanted as little waste as possible, and he worked hard to supply sustainable solutions for the catering and bar. And, most importantly, our guests love the food! He worked with us to make our menu perfect for our guests, and was super flexible, open, and knowledgeable about how to build a menu for a group of our size (140).

    On the day of the wedding, we were able to completely relax and enjoy our day knowing that Reuben was on it. He was totally essential in making our day go so smoothly and we can’t recommend him enough.
