5 stars for Cathy and her team at East Beach Catering! They made our daughter's February wedding beautiful, delicious, and stress free. We met with Cathy early on in our wedding planning process and found her to be warm, friendly, and easy to work with. She listened carefully to our very broad ideas and patiently helped us to develop a vision and plan that both met our budget and exceeded our expectations. Not only did Cathy create our menu, but she was also a valuable source of information and guidance on time line planning, efficient venue layout, numbers and budget, and selection of other vendors and rental companies. We called, texted, and met with Cathy multiple times and she was always patient, responsive, and encouraging. The wedding day was absolutely stress free. Cathy and her team set up all the tables and chairs at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth, took care of all the linens and table settings, and coordinated with the other vendors to ensure that things ran smoothly. They served butlered and stationery hors d’oevres and a buffet style dinner that were both delicious and beautiful. Cathy has a real gift for design and display. Our guests said that it was one of the best wedding meals they had ever had. Among the favorites…a colorful, creative fruit, veggie, and cheese display, mouthwatering beef tenderloin (best EVER!), parmesan encrusted chicken, roasted asparagus, and the most wonderful mashed potato bar served in martini glasses with assorted toppings (our kids affectionately called them “tater-tinis.”) Our late-night snack of milk shots and cookies was also a huge hit. Cathy’s staff was friendly, professional, and provided excellent service from start to finish. We highly recommend Cathy and East Beach Catering and look forward to fun, elegant events with them in the future!Sent on 04/29/2018

Professional, experienced, affordable
Easy Beach Catering was an absolute delight to work with for our wedding. Chelsea and Kathy were fantastic and have a wealth of experience in the wedding industry. We selected a seated meal with a choice of beef, salmon oscar (which was topped with a huge amount of crab meat) and parmesan chicken and we have already received so much positive feedback form our guests regarding dinner. During our tasting, my mom and I were blown away from the start. They rolled out the red carpet and the food was absolutely incredible. Additionally, Chelsea, being a former wedding coordinator, was a huge help to me in assisting with making my dreams come true- she is amazing you guys! She met with me to discuss our rentals, and again to discuss the logistics a month out, and quickly responded to all my emails. Our venue allowed us to bring in our own alcohol, and East Beach provided us with excellent resources to determine how much we needed to purchase. Compared to the other caterers that we looked at, East Beach was extremely professional and affordable.Sent on 06/07/2019
