Outstanding food, service, and planning

We worked with Christina and Bluewater Kitchen for our August 2020 wedding at Tranquility Farm. I have to thank Christina and her team for being so flexible and understanding with us while making so many changes to our plans during the COVID-19 situation. We went from expecting 160 guests to 30, with numerous precautions in place. Christina and her team pulled off an event that was fun, safe, and seamless. We did not look at any other caterers or coordinators and we didn't need to - we were thrilled with Bluewater Kitchen.

The food was excellent and we appreciated the care that Bluewater Kitchen took to cover allergies, dietary restrictions, and highlight seasonal ingredients. Our guests were so impressed. Bluewater also provided lunch and Sunday breakfast for us, and catered our rehearsal dinner, and everything was a huge hit.

The service was also outstanding - the staff was very safe, everyone with masks and gloves - and extremely warm and enthusiastic. Christina and her team communicated the COVID-19 precautions well in advance and we were grateful that our small number of guests were well cared for in a safe environment.

Christina also served as our month-of coordinator, but really, her planning help began about two months in advance since we decided to significantly downsize our wedding. She knows her stuff and is very familiar with Tranquility Farm. Her timeline is detailed and she walks you through every last detail. Inevitably something will come up and you'll freak out, and every time that happened, Christina was calm and had already thought of whatever had come up. We are so grateful for her expertise and calm during a unique time.

Thank you Bluewater!!

We highly recommend Bluewater Kitchen for catering, and as a day of coordinator. They're super experienced, but we love that you get the attention and connection of a smaller business that gets to know its clients.

Bluewater's food is excellent. Their hors d'oeuvres were so cute on the platter and were delicious (we loved the mini chicken pot pies). And we had a hard time narrowing down to the chicken and fish for entrees because we liked everything we tried so much during the tasting.

Christina is so wonderful and helpful, and she made our day run seamlessly. She helped us in the weeks leading up to the wedding with menu details, room layout, figuring out beverage amounts and getting in touch with our other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page.

On the day of, she was there to help our friend who was officiating our wedding work out kinks minutes before the ceremony, and during the reception she made sure we got food and drinks, and was quick to offer the back of her earring to the bride when hers fell out. She kept things so organized and stopped any potential problems in their tracks.
