We wish we could give more stars!!! Erin and her team were AMAZING!!!! From start to finish everything was professionally presented, exquisitely prepared, and attentive to detail. We reached out to several caterers on the island, and Erin was one of two that called us back. We selected Erin first off because her personality and we felt that she really cared about what she dose. The second reason why we chose her was her attention to the details, especially since we had some guests with extreme food allergies, including mine. She was so sensitive to that, and accommodating, which is really hard to come by with caterers.Sent on 12/13/2018
I know many brides have taste tests, and sittings with caterers to pick menus, but we just couldn't find the time for a trip to Hawaii prior to our wedding, so we went blindly with picking a menu with her. She guided us and helped us put together the flavors and items. OH MY GOD!!! HER FOOD WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! We are still dreaming about the ribs that she made. We travel a lot for work all over the world and eat at a lot of big name and small name restaurants, have had some of the worlds top chefs prepare meals for us, but hands down this was one of the BEST meals we have ever had. Our guests are still talking about it.
AND THE DESSERTS!!! We really are not cake fans at all, and we rarely eat sweets, but we do occasionally love a really good cheesecake. Erin and her team really delivered. She create these bite size cheesecakes that were so savory and sweet all at the same time. Just melting in your mouth. She has a baker that she partners with for wedding cakes, and wow they are amazing. There wasn't a bite left by the time we left the island.
Save yourself the trouble of looking any further and just hire Erin to cater your event, you really really won't regret it. She is the kindest, sweetest person too, and has an amazing heart and you can just taste that in the food that she creates. Mahalo Erin!
Color Catering's reply:I'm just blown away by your response, wow!! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us, and I'll for sure pass on the compliments to my dessert ladies and we LOVED working for your family. Your love, also attention to details and just presence in kindness was very sincere and heart felt! We really enjoyed every bit of it too! God bless your marriage, and life together--you are a really FUN couple, and you'll have many years of great life together. :) Yay!!! Mahalo Nui Loa, from our hearts to yours!!!

Hard to improve on perfection!
Erin and her team are outstanding!!!! The praise for her food and presentation continues to stream in well beyond our wedding week!Sent on 08/27/2019
As to specifics... Erin’s patience and persistence when it comes to getting everything just right. She, quite simply, practices in meeting all hopes and expectations and will not settle for anything less!
I would also be remiss not to mention Erin’s sharp improvisational skills. She came up with ideas that you just can’t think of when your head is spinning from putting together the three ring circus, that is most weddings. More than once and seemingly out of thin air, she created miracle work-arounds to pop-up issues, that saved me from having to take the long way around. Caterer is too curt of a title to fully encapsulate all that she brings to the table. Pun fully intended!
I’ll let the attached embarrassing photo of us speak for itself, ha!!
🌺 Mahalo nui loa, Erin!!🌸
Color Catering's reply:Hahaha!!!! This photo of y’all made me roll. I’m so glad to have met and helped with everything that went on the table including the improv table shuffles! I sincerely hope we can meet up in NY and my daughter is already planning our trip. 😆😆 Your wedding is one we will remember forever!!!! Aloha Alan and Alex!! Here’s to helpful humans!!!

SO friendly and very helpful!
What a great crew! Erin was very responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. They were totally flexible helping us figure out our drink table/bar situation. The staff were so kind the day of our wedding, both to us and guests. The food was great. We especially loved the appetizers. And oh my word - the mini cheesecakes, we're still talking about them!!! Would 100% recommend!Sent on 12/05/2018
