Catering Connection is the best!

Catering Connection made our wedding dreams a reality! Every detail, from the mouthwatering appetizers (seriously, the bacon wrapped dates were the best!) to the attentive service, was absolutely perfect. If you are lucky enough to work with Casey, you will not be sorry! She was a pleasure to work with and honestly made the whole process as easy as possible. Overall, Catering Connection exceeded our expectations in almost every way. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or special event!

Wonderful service!

Thank you KB Events for recommending Casey and her team from Catering Connection. From the start CC were always available, prompt, and accommodating to our request. The day finally arrives for a full wedding at the Santa Barbara Court House and your hoping your choices from appetizers, a grazing table, the bar and family style meal for 100+ would be the right choice for you and your guest.
Casey and her team brought a wonderful experience with excellent bartenders, delicious food, her chef, many others behind the scenes to put out a meal with many guest complementing everything that Catering Connection did for us.
Thank you!

Absolutely amazing!

They were absolutely amazing! Casey and her team took care of everything and helped make our day perfect! She made sure we ate (Both apps and dinner), drinks were full and guests were all happy. They were the absolute best and I would 1000% use them again. They helped with planning every little detail along the way, and helped us make decisions. She even helped organize other vendors and rentals for the big day! Casey and her team made it a flawless and perfect day from start to finish! I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Oh and the food was mouth watering and as delicious or more delicious than the tasting!
