    Best of the Best!

    Our wedding was truly a masterpiece. I know everyone says and thinks that of their wedding day, but it truly was--and so much of that has to do with the One North Broad Team and Catering By Design. My husband and I met in Philadelphia (where I am also from) so we wanted our wedding in Philly even though we live in New York City. For this reason, we knew that we needed a solid/responsive team to work with because so many of our interactions would be virtual. ONB and CBD were it!

    Catering By Design is ONB's exclusive caterer. Initially, we were hesitant about venues that had exclusive caterers because we are FOODIES and we wanted the venue and catering decisions to be separate. However, CBD did not come to play! Knowing how passionate we were about choosing ONB as our venue, but unsure of CBD as our caterer, Terri Fair arranged for us to have a tasting BEFORE we made the official commitment. To me that gesture alone demonstrated that they were not just invested in receiving our money/business, but committed to proving they could be the perfect fit for our perfect day. What also sold us on CBD was their many many catering options. A lot of catering companies have their set menu tiers with set prices, and you just pick from a list. CBD, however, works within your budget and food preferences to make your dreams reality! While we still opted for a traditional seated dinner, we had the option to do family-style, buffet, etc... And the range of food options from their hors d'oeuvres to their entrees were overwhelming in the best way imaginable! A foodie heaven!

    The staff that worked our wedding was out of this world. From the way they dressed to the way they interacted with our guests-- folks are still talking about how impressed they were with the team. My husband and I had a dedicated staff member who made sure we had everything we needed BEFORE we even needed, and that small detail truly made a world of difference. The set-up and break-down of our reception was seamless and efficient, and before we were ready to head out of the door we had all of our extra food packaged and ready to go with us-- which was much appreciated the morning after!

    Most amazing food and service!

    We worked with Terri Fair and CBD for our wedding at ONE North Broad this past December. I cannot say enough great things about the amazing food and service we had at our wedding. We received so many compliments from our guests. From how well the entrees were cooked, to the variety of hor d’ouerves we had at cocktail hour, and how nice and professional the wait staff was.

    Terri was such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire planning process. She answered all of our questions and was extremely accommodating with any requests we had. The day of the wedding I was completely stress free because from the planning process I knew Terri had every detail under control. Things ran incredibly smooth because of her.

    We are so very grateful to Terri and her staff for making our wedding day a dream! Hire CBD if you are looking for amazing food and service at your wedding.

    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!
