    Fantastic catering

    Carrie Dove catered our wedding and did an absolutely amazing job! They are not a budget option, but you truly do get what you pay for, and I鈥檓 so glad we went with them. The planning process with Carrie Dove was incredibly easy. Working with Victoria, we did a consultation, we did a tasting, and picked a menu. What I didn鈥檛 realize beforehand was how much more than just the dinner the caterer would handle. Victoria managed our rental contract for us as well, helped us plan the space, and advised us on the alcohol order as well. We rented beautiful linens through them directly as well. She was so easy to work with throughout the process, always helpful, and super responsive. When there was a crisis with the alcohol order the day before the wedding, Victoria stepped in and reassured us that she was going to make sure she figured it out for us, putting us at ease.

    The food itself was incredibly good! We got compliments from many of our guests on the food, with several saying unprompted that it was the best wedding food they鈥檇 ever had. They were able to easily accommodate a wide range of dietary restrictions. Also, their servers did a fantastic job throughout the night taking care of us and our guests.

    Sadly, we learned after our wedding that we were Victoria鈥檚 last wedding, as she left Carrie Dove the next week. Still, we would highly recommend Carrie Dove!

    Thank you for making our day positively stupendous!

    Thank you so much Carrie Dove! Not only was the food amazing (and i'm picky!), but the service and staff went above and beyond. Here are some high level things Carrie Dove did to ensure our day was fabulous:

    - Tweak the cook of our food. After our tasting we wanted the meats cooked a slightly different way. The staff took the feedback and made the change. It was amazing!

    - Special Meal: I had a family members with very specific food needs and they worked with me to put together a special menu for this person

    - Event Day: They cleaned, took the trash out and organized. Our wedding was at a private venue and they truly went above and beyond to ensure we didn't have a huge mess to deal with. Thank you!

    - Staff was SUPER pleasant: Everyone was very nice and accommodating to all our guests. We only heard positive feedback.

    My husband and I want to say thank you as you truly helped make our day spectacular!

    Best catering I've had

    Carrie Dove Catering is absolutely incredible! We hired Carrie Dove for our January wedding and we are so glad we did. The food was one of the most important aspects of our wedding to us and we really wanted our catering to stand out. First off, they made us feel so special when went to having our tasting. Everything was so thoughtful, including a cute welcome sign with our names in front of a parking spot just for us. Fast forward leading up to the wedding, they were so communicative and knew everything that needed to be worked out with our venue regarding space, permits, etc. Day-of, the food was INCREDIBLE. Carrie Dove is the perfect mix of elegant and delicious food at an actual reasonable price. The value of what you get with Carrie Dove is unreal. Food was prepared perfectly, including the steak (which is not always done well at weddings!), and the addition of the dessert table was a huge hit with our guests. I cannot recommend them enough or give them enough praise!
