    Fabulous food

    My daughter chose Catering Connection for both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding reception so we had a chance to sample many selections. ALL WERE TERRIFIC. The wedding guests included many with dietary considerations and delicious options were available to fit all needs. I would highly recommend this company.

    Hiring Catering Connection was one of our best decisions!

    There aren't enough words to describe just how awesome Casey and the rest of the Catering Connection team were to work with for our April 2023 wedding! From our tasting, to handling last minute adjustments, to truly INCREDIBLE food on the day-of, there was literally nothing that could have gone better. Guest after guest have reached out saying that this was the best wedding food they've ever had (both the entrees and the cocktail hour hors 'derves), and the signature cocktails were nothing short of amazing (again, guests were stunned by the presentation and taste of all our drinks). The entire team was professional, super friendly, and accommodating for everyone to everyone in attendance. Casey made sure my husband and I were well cared for throughout the night, and importantly, made sure we ate our own share of apps and dinner :) Thank you so so soooo much to the team, we are so grateful for all that you did to make our wedding seriously perfect. We can't recommend Casey and her team enough!!!

    The best of the best!

    Casey and the team at catering connection are amazing! They catered my wedding and they went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly. I had a last minute gluten free guest and they were able to provide a meal change the day of the event. Not only is their food amazing but their staff is lovely and very professional. Casey is a brides best friend and made sure that my husband and I actually ate food in between running around for pictures. I cannot recommend catering connection enough, from the initial phone call to the day of the event, they were wonderful every step of the way!

    Catering Connection's reply:

    We loved being part of your gorgeous day and ensuring you and your husband got some food in. We feel so honored you chose us to cater for your wedding and grateful for any recommendations you send our way. Thank you so much for your kind words about my team and I. Really glad everyone enjoyed the food.
