I spent a lot of time at the beginning of our wedding planning seeking out a great caterer and boy was I thrilled when I found Chef Dawnelle! After reading reviews, and having that initial conversation with her, I was sold! We hired her to cater our wedding and was really impressed by how she helped to customize the menu based on our respective backgrounds and cultures (I am Panamanian, and my husband is Kenyan). Our cocktail hour had beef and lamb sliders, coconut curry chicken and an AMAZING fruit salsa dish that Chef Dawnelle recommended. I wouldn’t even have thought up such a dish, but I’m so happy that she did. It was delicious!Sent on 05/02/2018
Our dinner menu included Shrimp Curry (a nod to my background), Basmati Rice, Brazilian Flank Steak and Kenya Kidney Beans (a nod to my husband’s background). Everything was absolutely MAGNIFICENT! One of my guests – a 50-something former colleague of mine – made it a point to come to our table and let us know it was the best food he’s ever had at a reception! Please keep in mind that this man has 4 children all of whom are married so, he’s been to his fair share of weddings! :)
Just as wonderful as the food was Chef Dawnelle’s client service and thoughtfulness. She was really kind throughout the entire process, and went above and beyond to help us have a very special day. We are so incredibly grateful to her for everything, and are so happy that we booked her! Take it from me – and everyone else on here – if you book her, you won’t regret it!

Unlike other reviews, Chef Dawnelle catered our actual wedding (and snacks) versus a rehearsal dinner. So, if you are interested in a caterer for your wedding, she can definitely do it!Sent on 10/11/2017
We were referred to Chef Dawnelle by our wedding planner, Elysian Events. Our planner referred us to other caterers as well (because we wanted to try different companies and we are quasi-foodies), but based on our tastings the other caterers were not HALF as delicious as Chef Dawnelle is! And, like a proper southern belle, she even held our private tasting in her home. It was lovely!
Like a true chef, Dawnelle does not have a standard menu. She customizes whatever you can dream up (thanks Pinterest). Our cocktail hour had fun finger foods that included mac & cheese balls, shrimp cocktail shooters and mini grilled cheese/tomato soup shooters as our hors d'oeuvres. Delicious! Guests loved everything about them. There wasn't one complaint in the house!
We selected beef tenderloin and white fish (it was catch of the day). Guests said it was some of the best tenderloin they had ever eaten and raved about the fish and risotto. Strangely enough, one of the big hits was also the apple/walnut salad. And, true story, a couple members of the bridal party raided the fridge (incredibly drunk) after the wedding and pounded leftover salad. We endearingly renamed it "drunk salad" (a name change to consider, chef)! Hahaha!
Lastly, Chef Dawnelle catered our milk/cookie "midnight" snack toward the end of our reception. We had custom cookie flavors that were absolutely to die for. They were so fresh and so delicious. Guests LOADED up on cookies. As the bride, I was bummed because I had planned to snack on them for a day or two. Nope! They were gone!
I know a lot of our guests personally thanked her and I believe she even got an applause? LOL! She was fabulous. Thank you, Chef! Stop reading reviews and just book this gal. She will make your foodie dreams come true!
