    Delicious Wedding Food

    Crave was the first tasting we had during our planning process and they set the bar really high which made it easy to select them as our caterer! Kelsea was super responsive and easy to work with and we didn't have to worry about anything from start to finish. We had a few people tell us that "no one remembers the food at weddings" but I think it is safe to say that is not / will not be the case for our wedding. We have already had numerous people tell us that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding and I can't tell you how many people have raved about the salmon in particular! We were really drawn to the PNW vibe and farm to table approach that Crave offers and are so glad we went with them!

    Vegan Wedding

    We had a fully vegan wedding and were shocked at how many options they had! We didn't even have to give examples or recipes for vegan options, they had a full menu already set for us to choose from. They were also very flexible with the menu and let us replace one of the side dishes with a third main dish. We had a lot of skeptical wedding guests that think they don't like vegan food but they loved it! The presentation of the food was phenomenal as well!

    Crave also took care of coordinating all our rentals - tables, linens, etc. The only negative I could say about them is that I requested no broccoli (my cousin is severely allergic) and there was broccoli serves so she had to stand outside for the majority of the reception.

    Farm to Table and they mean it!

    Both Crave’s food and service was so good. We knew that we wanted food to be an important part of the wedding, and Crave delivered! Being able to see them freshly preparing and plating up food was a real joy, and the quality and presentation of the food was just as good. We loved that Crave’s approach was very much quality over quantity, and nothing was too heavy or overly portioned, which left our guests with room for cake, and energy for dancing. Finally, our experience with Crave’s event coordinator was excellent! She was very attentive to our needs, and even made up some custom menu cards for us!
