    Great experience with Catering Connection!

    My wife and I were so impressed and pleased with our experience with Catering Connection. Everything from the initial communications, planning, and food tasting with Casey through the execution of the event with Philippe, the Catering Connection team covered every detail and worked diligently to provide the exact experience we desired. We hosted a small (60 guests), buffet-style wedding in Santa Barbara on a busy wedding weekend in May, yet Catering Connection made us feel like we were their only client. Many of our guests commented numerous times on the quality of the food and service provided by their wait staff. We highly recommend Catering Connection to any couple or team planning a wedding or other event!

    It was a pleasure to cater your wedding and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed the event! Thanks for taking the time to write this review, we really appreciate it!

    Can't Recommend Catering Connection Enough!

    Catering Connection went above and beyond to make our day perfect! Our guest raved about the delicious food and excellent service. Their whole team was responsive and easy to work with leading up the event. Casey in particular always answered all my questions - no matter how detailed. I really recommend working with them on rentals as well since that took a lot of stress off me leading up to the big day. So pleased we selected Catering Connection for our wedding and hope to work with them again on other events.

    Catering Connection's reply:

    Thank you so much, Jennifer! These photos are stunning! We are so happy to hear you and your guests enjoyed your special day and we are so blessed to be a part of it.

    Amazing experience & loved working with Casey

    I am so glad that we hired Catering Connection for our small wedding last month. Casey was such a pleasure to work with and was incredibly professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. Because we were having such a small event, we chose not to hire a planner - meaning I had so many more questions than I anticipated, yet Casey was patient and helpful through it all. She definitely went above and beyond throughout the whole process, and even helped us decide on and coordinate rentals.

    Catering Connection was also able to execute custom requests for us such as deviled eggs, bacon wrapped shrimp, prime grade meat, and keto desserts. Everything was beautifully plated and delicious, and our families are still talking about how great the food was (particularly rave reviews of the baked brie on the charcuterie plate). The day-of staff were prompt, efficient, and kind. The day went so smoothly and better than expected. Please do yourself a favor and hire this team as well!

    Catering Connection's reply:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Happy to hear we made your intimate wedding a breeze. It's been such a pleasure working with you over the year!
