CBD is an unforgettable caterer. They spend significant time getting to know their couples and they craft a menu based on your likes. They don't do tastings until you book and plan a menu, but don't let that dissuade you; the food is INCREDIBLE. All of our guests told us that this not only the best wedding food they'd ever had, but also some of the best overall food they'd had.
On our wedding day, we felt like royalty. We had a staff member whose sole job it was to be sure that we had a drink in our hands and food at our table. It was an unexpected surprise - and made the day all the more special.
Ask to work with Nancy Schwoebel. Nancy is an absolute joy, knows her stuff, and has a great reputation; your other vendors will be happy when they hear her name.

Most Amazing Experience
I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful Catering By Design is, Liz Savits specifically!! From the moment I met Liz, I knew she was the perfect person to coordinate everything for my wedding. She was laid back and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. Catering by Design provided the most amazing food and service on our wedding day at the College of Physicians. From the butlered appetizers, to the stations, to the entrees, to dessert - everything went seamlessly! I truly hope I get to attend a wedding in the future so I can experience it all over again! Cannot thank them enough!
I had the distinct pleasure to work side by side with Megan Aldritch of Catering by Design for an event that had to go together very quickly, with clients from out of state. I was more than pleasantly surprised by several things: open and fast returned communication, willingness to partner, consistently positive atttitude and good humor, and when the event came, incredible professionalism from the ENTIRE crew and especially Megan, and the food was INcredible!! I would recommend this vendor without any qualms for any event! Thanks to Catering by Design for making this event another one to remember fondly - a job well done by all!
