Working with Bradford Catered Events was the highlight of my wedding planning process. Rex was an absolute delight to work with. Between his love for food, his outgoing personality and his wit any bride will love working with he and his team. The whole team spent hours with myself, my husband and my mother decided on our menu and working out the details. The food…the food is absolutely amazing! I am a Southern girl with a passion for real southern cheese grits, the cheese grit station we had at our wedding from Bradford Catered Events was out of this world. Let’s just say I got to eat the majority of my portion at 2am after the wedding and even cold and hours later, they were just as amazing. The chicken and dumplings were just like our grandmother’s made them and our guests loved them. We still are hearing about our Krispy Kreme station, it was like no other. Oh and our strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream icing may have been the best thing I have ever eaten. Literally we broke the rules of waiting a year to unthaw the top layer after a month of being married just so we could have just a little bit more. I grew up on Publix cake and thought it was the best in the world…Publix has nothing on Rex’s cakes.Sent on 07/31/2014
The staff was absolutely wonderful the night of our wedding. Not only did they make sure my husband and I were happy, but they took great care of our guests. We were so fortunate to have had Bradford Catered Events be a part of our special day. I would recommend this catering company to everyone I know looking to hold a party, wedding or any event in the Knoxville and surrounding areas. Thank you to Rex and his team for making our day perfect!

Best Caterer in Knoxville!
Bradford has the reputation of being the best caterer in Knoxville - because it's true! I reached out to multiple catering companies to get quotes for my wedding, some of which didn't even respond. Bradford's staff immediately responded to my inquiries and set up meetings to go over what we would be looking for. They were helpful with all of our questions, giving recommendations for how we envisioned the day going, and the Bradford food is delicious! While we did a buffet, we had a few vegetarians we got plated entrees for - with no issue! We also ordered our cake through Bradford, which was excellent and convenient not needing to go through another vendor!Sent on 04/18/2019
Day of the wedding, the Bradford employees were extremely polite to guests, dressed professionally, and extremely attentive! Before I even noticed my water glass was getting low, the Bradford staff was bringing me a refill.
We got many compliments on all of the food and the cake! Will definitely be using Bradford for events in the future!

Excellent food and service
Beverly was wonderful to communicate with and very responsive. I did not get to eat much food even though she had made me a huge plate with everything on it. Our guests commented on how delicious the food was!Sent on 11/24/2018

Bradford Catering is AMAZING! They always have something different and so delicious! The couples that have chosen Bradford for their wedding are always so happy, and the guests rave about the food! Every time! The food is out on time, the right temperature, looks and tastes wonderful! and the staff is always so professional, quick to clear away empty plates, they keep trash cans out of sight, and keep the buffet filled, and look professional, with smiles on their faces! Sometimes, as a wedding photographer, I don't get to grab a plate until after the cake is cut or at least until everyone is through the line, and there's always plenty! Bradford takes care of their couples, but also the other vendors!
Bradford Catered Events always delivers the most delicious, high-quality food with service that is unmatched. Every single member of their team is dedicated to above and beyond work. We love working with them!
