    Great service by great people!

    DaH Catering was fabulous to work with at every stage of our pandemic-delayed wedding celebration and planning. I think that you learn a lot about who people are when things get tough. And what we learned about Ashley and Carter as we *twice* had to reschedule our wedding due to Covid is that they are incredibly kind and compassionate people who cared about us as people and not just as clients. They would earn my unreserved recommendation for that alone.

    But in addition to being great people they are also consummate professionals and talented caterers. The food was delicious and the whole process of choosing our menu was very smooth, even when we had to change practically our entire plan a month out to better suit a smaller wedding. They handled all of the details of our rentals, so that all we had to do was go and pick out what we wanted. Everything during our event was smooth and seamless, so much so that we didn't have to think about it at all. The food looked great, tasted great, and was served quickly and on time. The bar service was particularly impressive, and Carter worked overtime with me to get our signature cocktails just how we wanted them. While we had many hiccups getting to and through our wedding day, it was nothing but smooth sailing with our entire catering service. I would recommend anyone getting married in the Charlottesville area to work with DAH Catering. You'll get great service provided by great people--we couldn't have asked for more!

    Dream Team!

    From our very first contact with Ashley and Carter, we had found the right caterer for our daughter’s wedding. Friendly and professional, they created the perfect dining experience for our guests including those with special dietary needs. They even incorporated personal items from our kitchen. Their staff was professional and handled everything from rentals to set up and clean up. The meal was fantastic, and perhaps best of all, we were able to relax and enjoy watching our daughter’s dream come true!

    Very pleased with DaH!

    Working with DaH for our wedding was a dream from start to finish! Ashley and Carter were professional, responsive, and lovely to work with in the lead up to our big day. They walked us through the whole process including what we needed to know, what decisions we needed to make, and when we needed to make those decisions. I also appreciate that they partner with a company that provides equally-excellent service and high-quality rentals. Once we said “yes,” everything was smooth with planning. We couldn't have been happier with how things went on the day of our wedding. The cuisine was outstanding and the service was excellent. We appreciated the variety of dishes that DaH offers, and were very pleased with our final menu choices. Each dish was fresh, delicious, and memorable. In terms of logistics, the whole event went smoothly and seamlessly, a huge credit to the DaH team orchestrating things from behind the scenes. I would absolutely work with DaH for future events, small (like ours was) or large. Thank you again, Ashley and Carter!
