    Food blew my guests away!

    We used them for our rehearsal dinner and reception. My goal was to have something different, so we did a taco bar for rehearsal and breakfast food for the reception. The breakfast for dinner menu blew people away! Everyone was so excited about the chicken and waffles! I would highly recommend Catering by Design if you're looking for a flexible, professional, customizable, and unique caterer. They'll let you customize your dream menu and also have bartending services! They set up, cleaned up, cleared plates, cut the cake, and checked on the bride and groom to make sure we were satisfied. I couldn't recommend them enough!
