    Amazing experience with Catering by LT!!

    The Catering by LT team went above and beyond in making our wedding so special! Patricia was so helpful and responsive to us throughout the planning process. LT provided a whole team to help with service and bartending, and of the course, they served delicious food and dessert!! We are Middle Eastern, and it was so important to us to have authentic Lebanese food. My husband and I are so thankful to this team for taking care of everything so that we did not have to worry about a thing on our special day. We highly recommend Catering by LT for your upcoming events, you will not be disappointed!!

    Just the best

    I cannot say enough nice things about Charles and the Catering by LT staff. I meet with several caterers before I found Charles and Catering by LT and as soon as we spoke I knew we had to go with them. Charles goes above an beyond any other catering service. He worked with me on all the details, met with the venue on numerous occasions and made sure everything was perfect. All our guests raved about the food (especially the hummus). You cannot go wrong with Catering by LT!

    Catering by LT's reply:

    Meredith,

    Thank you for all the wonderful words and for being an absolute gem to work with. It's easy to shine when working on behalf of wonderful peoples such as yourself & Mike. We all wish you the very best and look forward to celebrating many anniversaries with the two of you in years to come.

    Sincerely,

    Charles

    They think of everything so you don't have to!

    We chose LT to cater our welcome party the night before our wedding and they were absolutely amazing. Charles, the director of catering, doesn't just make sure you have good food, he makes sure you have a good event (from timing, to linens, etc).

    Catering by LT's reply:

    Dear Meg,

    Thank you for the incredibly kind words. It was easy to shine with guests like you & Patrick. Thank you for choosing to work with us and we look forward to being there for the many milestone events that lie ahead in your lives together.

    Best Wishes for the two of you!


    Charles

I'm a wedding planner, and Catering by LT catered one of my recent weddings. They were wonderful! Working with Shawna was easy from start to finish, she was beyond helpful, and the food! Wow. So delicious. The guests loved it too! I can't wait to have another wedding with Shawna and the Catering by LT team.

I photographed a wedding alongside Toni Briggs who was working with Catering by LT - she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was she great with the couple she was very aware of my needs as a photographer, kept me posted on any schedule tweaks, made sure I ate, got me water, etc. Not to mention it is LT food, which is an Arlington favorite and absolutely amazing. Toni and the LT catering staff were all just lovely!
