    10 Stars for Catered by Design!

    Wow wow wow!! Catered by Design was absolutely amazing. Being out of town, my parents went to meet with Rachel and do the taste testing. They called us right away not only raving about the food, but about the service and Rachel as well. The food was to die for! Everyone on staff did a fantastic job on the day of the wedding. The attention to detail and coordination was on point! Captain Laurie was amazing, she ran everything so smooth and was very sweet, along with her crew. People are still talking about how spectacular the food and staff were and we couldn't be more appreciative of their commitment to making our day so perfect! 100% would recommend them. Beyond professional. Food was 10/10. Service was friendly and always going above and beyond!

    Magical Wedding

    My Daughters wedding was just last weekend. I cannot say enough great things about working with Rachel and Catered by Design. They were wonderful to work with from the beginning. Rachel was patient with all my requests and had wonderful suggestions as well. The day of the wedding was a crazy weather day. It started out at over 100* dropped 25* in an hour, then severe thunderstorms. Rachel and the Captain for the night (Laura) were fantastic. They managed to switch the location of the cocktail hour from outside on the terrace to inside at the last minute and made the evening a success! Thank you to Catered By Design and their incredible staff for making my daughters wedding a dream! I am still getting texts/calls about how lovely the wedding & food were.
