We LOVE Cater 2 Events!!
10 out of 5 stars!! Cater 2 Events is the absolute BEST caterer around and without-a-doubt, one of the best wedding vendors you can find. You will never regret working with them because they are so much more than a catering business -- they became like family to us and exemplified TRUE Southern hospitality! Lona, Gill, Kelly, and entire team are the sweetest, most genuine people, and it is without hesitation that we would recommend them to any bride or family planning an event. We knew we wanted to work with them as soon as we stepped into their lovely, quaint location where they hosted us for a tasting. They immediately made us feel at home and had printed out personalized menus for each of us. That was just the start of it -- as soon as we tasted all of Lona's incredible foods she had prepared, it was a done deal! Cater 2 Events worked with us and our wedding planner to help bring our vision to life by being flexible, working with our budget, being extremely organized and communicative, and inspiring us with creative, delicious ideas for hors d'oevres and dinner courses. They even let us come in for a second tasting to hone our menu again! Lona followed up on each interaction by mailing me a handwritten note expressing her gratitude for working with them...I mean, we were totally spoiled!!Sent on 07/16/2019
Cater 2 Events brought our vision of individual first-course cheese boards to life, and the beautiful pictures can hardly do justice to the way they were perfectly arranged and executed. Our guests still can't stop talking about them almost three months later! Cater 2 Events was punctual, preparing and distributing dishes to our more than 200 guests in a smooth, timely manner at the reception. They went above and beyond, such as adding in a last-minute late night snack and picking up our cakes from another local vendor the day-of. Their staff was warm and hospitable, and even as the busy bride the day of the wedding I will never forget their friendly smiles and the way they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed from their cocktail hour staff, to bartenders, to dinner staff. They even made a personalized cheese board for my husband who had jokingly requested a special cheese, and Gill drove home a groomsmen of ours at the end of the night who had...um...a little too much fun.:) I could go on...but I hope it's obvious that these wonderful people truly show what it's like to earnestly and successfully run a client business the right way (especially in an industry as tough as weddings!) They have been so great at staying in touch since the wedding, and our family cannot say good enough things about them. You better believe we'll refer them to anyone and everyone who listens! Thank you, Cater 2 Events - we're forever grateful!

Don't Look Any Further - Cater2Events is the Best!
From start to finish, Lona and her team made the catering process/decisions so stress free. During our preliminary conversations, the team asked thoughtful questions to help design a menu that would delicious and palatable for a large crowd in June. They also were interested in hearing our opinions and tailoring it specifically to our tastes and budget.Sent on 07/09/2019
Lona and her husband prepared our tasting for us, and it was such an intimate, personal experience. They shared stories of their own marriage, while serving us each course. They took our feedback seriously, and they also offered their helpful opinions. For instance, Lona helped us realize the value in having a cheese and fruit display, which we never would have thought of, and it ended up being a huge hit! She also recommended a plated salad, so the guests would have something to nibble on while they waited for the buffet. She also attended our final walkthrough with the venue to ensure that we were all on the same page.
Day of, everything was perfect. The presentation was beautiful, and we got so many compliments on the mixed-matched china that Cater2Events provided. The food was all delicious, and my husband and I both appreciated that they made sure we took the time to actually eat. Everyone we talked to left full and happy, and several of our guests are still talking about the mashed potatoes.
Finally, the waitstaff was attentive and engaging. It was so nice to see them joking around with the guests, and (I hope) having as much fun as we were.
If you haven't booked your catering yet, you should definitely give Cater2Events a call!

Cannot day enough good things about Cater2Events!!!
Cater2Events is hands down the best caterer in Virginia-but they’re so much more than just a caterer. 1) Food is exceptional in deliciousness, quality, creativity, and options. 2) Service is out of this world. I will truly forever be sad my wedding is over because I won’t get to meet with Lona, Gill, and Kelly on a regular basis. They are a pleasure to work with and they deliver everything they promise!! Also, the staffing for the event was flawless. There were no lines at the bars, dishes cleaned up promptly, super attentive to me and my husband. They were so effencient and professional the event was perfection. 3) Creativity is a huge factor that sets C2E far and away from any competitor. We had a beer boat, a bourbon bar, used my grandmothers china, specialty cocktails, stations for every food style we love (southern, seafood, pasta, etc). They set up the room BEAUTIFULLY! Any idea my mom and I had they took it and ran with it making our dreams a reality. My wedding felt SO special and personalized. My wedding would not have been the same without them. Single handedly the best decision we made throughout the whole wedding planning process and we would not have been able to achieve HALF as much as we did without them. And they are just the absolute best people to work with!!! I can’t wait to plan a reunion or anniversary party of some sort with them. Best decision we made!! Love you C2E!!!Sent on 10/30/2018
