    Everything we could have asked for and more!

    Catering by Design was simply amazing. Everything from the food to the staff. Kelli was our contact and was super responsive and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. The food was so good! Some of our guests are still talking about how good the food was at our wedding. We also loved that they included a bartender with their services, so we didn't have to worry about finding one. We just had to provide the beer and wine. They also included full china and they cut and served our cake. They were pros! We were also very surprised at how reasonable the prices were. The price for what you're getting is really reasonable. Thank you Catering by Design for helping make our wedding day amazing!

    I cannot say enough GREAT things

    I *cannot* say enough great things about Catering by Design. (That's coming from a family of foodies.) Everyone we worked with phenomenal, and service ran seamlessly on the day of the event. The food was exceptional - exactly the same from the tasting to the day-of.

    My parents exhausted all of the major caterers in the area, and none came close to Catering by Design with regard to food tastings.

    My husband and I were out-of-state, so my parents did the initial tasting. Catering by Design happily provided he and I another tasting, so we could sample and tweak the final menu.

    Perhaps MOST important - everyone prepared my husband and I that we wouldn't get a chance to eat on our wedding day. Catering by the Design saw to it that we tried everything from the cocktail hour and had a plate waiting for us when we sat down at the reception. I left my wedding full -- no togo box needed (but I know they would have provided one if we asked!)
