    Exceptional!

    My daughter and her fiancé had a good idea of what they wanted for their menu but we took a few suggestions and WOW! Chelsea, Amy and team outdid themselves from the handling of the contract, tasting and finally the reception. Amy checked in with me regularly during the reception when we started changing the agenda. It was all so seamless.
    I want to specifically shoutout some of the food that people kept commenting on. The crab cakes were not filler but CRAB! The beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly to suit everyone and the Parmesan encrusted chicken was so tasty and not typical ‘dry’ wedding chicken. Almost everyone I spoke to mentioned the mashed potatoes…please don’t skip this on your menu, they’re amazing!
    We are so thankful for everything East Beach Catering did for us. Thank you, thank you!!

    East Beach Catering's reply:

    Thank you so much, Cynthia! We are so appreciative that you chose us for your daughters wedding!

    Perfect choice!

    My husband and I wanted to serve dishes from both of our cultures- Peruvian and US Southern- in the wedding. East Beach Catering was able to do that and more! They created a buffet menu that included specific Peruvian and American dishes we wanted, as well as some of their most popular dishes. We were able to have Peruvian dishes during cocktail hour and in the main menu. It was awesome! They were also open to any changes we had during the food tasting. We got so many compliments about the food!
    East Beach Catering’s staff was also fantastic. Cathy and Chelsea’s team was super professional, helpful, and attentive throughout the planning process and the wedding. I would absolutely recommend them for your wedding.
