Carrie Dove was absolutely amazing! We cannot recommend them more highly!Sent on 10/19/2019
The food was delicious (many of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they’ve had). We had stations and the “build your own poke” station was a particular hit! The gorgonzola mac and cheese and the walnut encrusted seabass were also fan favorites.
Beyond the food though, Carrie Dove’s service is really what stands out. Throughout the planning process they were responsive and helpful, and at the wedding they were perfect! Victoria was our main point of contact and she was on hand all night making sure everything ran smoothly. There was also a member of the staff who made sure we got to try all of the appetizers, kept our drinks filled, and got us plates of all of the food throughout the night. After the wedding they packed up all of the décor and other items on our behalf and brought them back to their warehouse so we didn’t need to worry the night of, we were able to sleep in and pick everything up a couple days later.
Leading up to the wedding Victoria was on top of everything. My mother made fairly intricate centerpieces that involved some assembly for turning on little embedded lights but the Carrie Dove team took them in stride and they were all set up flawlessly. Everything looked so professional too – I brought hot sauces to make into a hot sauce bar as a nod to my late father and they set up each of the hot sauces on different stands and really made it look special. That kind of care and attention to detail was amazing.
Also we really liked how Carrie Dove’s contract was very straightforward, there’s no fine print or hidden fees like we saw in some other contracts such as for handling the centerpieces or for storing items before/after the wedding.
We had a great time at our wedding – the food and drinks were great, our guests were well taken care of and we knew the details were in good hands. We highly recommend Carrie Dove :-)

Warm, professional, and delicious!
Carrie Dove made our wedding (at the Marin Art and Garden Center) run like a dream. From the cozy, welcoming tasting, we knew we picked the right people. Kit answered a constant stream of our questions leading up to the day, accommodated special requests (we got our own alcohol and appetizers), set up a gorgeous space for us on the day of, and seamlessly took care of us and gave us cues throughout the event. Katherine was wonderfully helpful and kind when helping with our ceremony, from the rehearsal, to chuppah and sound setup day of. The main thing we wanted from the wedding was for things to be easy, and Kit and Katherine and their wonderful staff made sure of it. And have I mentioned that our guests loved the food? Delicious, professional, kind, responsive, accommodating - Carrie Dove was just lovely, and worth every penny. Thank you guys!Sent on 06/27/2019

Excellent Food and Service
Working with Carrie Dove was a dream! Our venue had a very small list of caterers we could choose from, and based off positive reviews and word of mouth, we chose Carrie Dove Catering and Events. We are so glad we did! From early conversations with Adam, to the chef making on the spot adjustments to his menu at our tasting, to last minute emails back and forth with our absolutely wonderful coordinator Victoria, we were happy with them every step of the way. Victoria completely put our minds at ease for every aspect of the wedding, and made the day run as smoothly as possible. The food was delicious, and all of our guests raved about it. Thank you so much, Carrie Dove!Sent on 04/22/2019
