    Choosing Cornell Catering was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Brandon Fortenberry and Eileen Gibson + team, were very accommodating, responsive, and resourceful.

    We live in Texas and had to plan our wedding remotely. We also had several events throughout campus. The team made the entire process so smooth and easy. They coordinated and thought of all the logistics to make each event perfect.

    The Cornell Catering team turned discussions into a reality. The decorations and food were far beyond what we could imagine. We felt like it was a fairy tale wedding and we are very appreciate of all the work Cornell Catering did to make this happen.

    Working with Cornell Catering was great! We primarily wanted great food and drink for an appropriate cost (quality and value) . With these things in mind, what we deemed secondary attributes (responsiveness, professionalism, flexibility) just seemed a given once we chose this vendor--because Cornell Catering cares! The ladies we worked with were incredibly versatile and sincere in helping us achieve a meal and drink plan that was going to work for us. The wedding packages are a great place to start (or end) your planning! We ended up going with a slightly modified wedding package II, an afternoon tea, some specialized wine for the head table and select beer and wine for an open bar, along with a few table and chairs/ decor rentals, all for ~ 100/pp including taxes and service charges. Considering that this included everything food and beverage related ( which were amazing, no end of compliments), a few accessories, and all hidden/extra charges-- I think we achieved our goals! It was so great to work with a professional caterer that alleviated any need for coordination with us on the day, freeing us to enjoy the moment!

    Cornell Catering did an amazing job! They were so attentive and helpful during the planning process. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. I got a number of compliments about how polite and helpful all the staff were. They made the reception run smoothly and I did not have to worry about a thing. They coordinated with my other vendors so I did not have to figure out a lot of the stressful logistical stuff on my own. I could not have been happier with Cornell Catering!
