    Custom menu, wonderful people and delicious food

    Seriously I’m still dying thinking about that delicious food from our wedding. Cherry Bomb worked with us to make a menu that had vegan and traditional Options and everything was so good! Food was so important to us when we thought of our wedding and Cherry Bomb delivered!

    A Bride’s Dream

    Early on in my wedding planning process I knew I did not want to have basic wedding food. I wanted to feed my guests something that would tantalize their tastebuds! And, honestly, I didn’t want to end up eating a bland chicken breast with mashed potatoes. My husband I actually automatically threw out most potential wedding venues if the catering options were limited. We knew we wanted Cherry Bomb to provide our first dinner as husband and wife.

    What really makes Cherry Bomb special is the level of professionalism and excitement that Dawn and her team had for our wedding. We started out with a plan for a 90 person family style dinner intended to bring our friends and family closer together, and Cherry Bomb was excited to work with us curating a perfect spread. (Obviously, this was pre-pandemic.) By the beginning of summer, we didn’t know what the status of our wedding would be by September. However, Dawn did not hesitate to keep an open line of communication regarding all COVID compliance changes. There was so much compassion and flexibility towards us as the client—even in the event of a postponement or cancellation. We didn’t even get another bill from Cherry Bomb until we were able to solidify our pandemic wedding plan. Our headcount eventually was reduced down to about 25 (including some meals for some other vendors). Even though we upgraded our meals a little bit (hello, filet Mignon and lobster), the final invoice was substantially less than the original plan. Even though we ended up spending much less money Cherry Bomb’s stellar customer service never wavered.

    The food was of course totally the bomb! We were the first tasting in their new kitchen, and Chef Kelsi definitely impressed our parents and us! We had no complaints, and Chef Kelsi delivered a magnificent feast on our wedding day! Every single person on the crew was fantastic—especially, the one who helped me with the door as I made my grand entrance to walk down the aisle. I can’t even thank Dawn, Kelsi, and the entire Cherry Bomb crew enough for being the rock that my husband and I needed in order to pull off the perfect pandemic wedding against all odds.

    Simply The Best!

    Dawn and the Cherry Bomb team did any amazing job catering our 125 person wedding in a remote location. They accommodated for a variety of food allergies, working with us to make recipe substitutions to meet all needs. The food was presented beautifully and tasted delicious- we were told by numerous guests that it was the best "wedding food" they had ever had! I appreciated the professionalism of Dawn and the serving staff- timely, accommodating, very friendly, and easy to work with. Before the wedding, Dawn met us at our venue to complete a walk through which was very reassuring. She also was willing to find ways to work within our budget. Highly recommend Cherry Bomb!
