One of the best aspects of our wedding!

I'll be honest, I thought other reviewers were exaggerating a bit about their guests commenting on Donelson's food but I kid you not, at least a dozen people went out of their way to tell us how amazing the food was at our wedding. The rosemary chicken was outstanding, and the veggies were cooked perfectly. I also highly recommend the crostinis! One guest said wedding food tends to be bleh at best, definitely not memorable, but they were blown away by how fresh and flavorful everything was. Huge thank you to Donelson's and Kimberly from our new family!

Our guests are still raving about the food!

The food was amazing! We got married October 21, 2022, and our guests are still talking about how great the food was! It was a pleasure working with Donelson鈥檚 as they were very responsive & extremely professional! They were able to accommodate us perfectly. Even with us living out of town, they were able to make arrangements for us to have our tasting when we鈥檙e able to get to Memphis. There are not enough words thank them for making our day even more special than it already was!
