    We had the BEST wedding dinner!

    We worked with Jenna and her team to plan our gorgeous wedding dinner in Hilton Head, SC. Jenna was a big help in getting us set up for a tasting and revising our menu as we tweaked our budget and our guest count. She was very thorough and never missed a detail. And when the day arrived, Cru showed up on time, worked so hard to get everything set up, and served us an incredible dinner. The food was amazing and the service was even better. We are thrilled that we chose Cru and we would recommend them to anyone who asks - and just because you aren't in Charleston, don't rule them out! We would've never guessed they traveled to us, and that they used a home kitchen to make our amazing dinner. They are rated so highly for a reason!

    The best of the best!

    As a wedding planner, Cru ALWAYS makes my job significantly easier. I recommend them to every single client I have. They're simply the best from beginning to end. They are extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with the wonderful Reilly + Jenna mostly, but every member of their staff I have spoken to or partnered with on weddings days has been phenomenal. My clients are always blown away after their tastings, and their guests rave about the food during every single event! Their food is unique and exceptional. Their service is incredible, as well as efficient. I am always blown away at how quick they are! They are all very personable and engaging, and very much team players who are ready to go above and beyond for each and every one of their clients. If you're on the fence, just hire them. Don't take another second. You WILL NOT regret it!!! :)

    Amazing Food

    You want great food at your wedding. It鈥檚 something that guests will remember. So it鈥檚 important to find the right one. I鈥檓 here to tell you that Cru is THE BEST catered food in Charleston hands down. We are foodies and Cru delivered for us and our guests. We still dream about our tasting. Grant it, we did need to be rolled out of there but gosh was that good! The staff at Cru were fantastic as well. They met us with a tray of apps as soon as we got to the reception and we had a personal wait staff who checked on us regularly. At the end of the night we devoured our To-Go cooler when we got back to the hotel. Everything was amazing!
