    Edwards Catering is the best!

    I didn't even know where to begin when it came to feeding guests at a wedding. Sam Edwards expertise and advice was much needed and proved to be spot on when the big day came. It was very easy to work with their company and design our own menu for both the cocktail hour and dinner. Their prices were unbelievably reasonable and seemed to covered nearly everything. During the cocktail hour, the staff provided separate food and drink to the wedding party while doing photos and helped flip our ceremony space to the reception space including setting up tables, chairs, tablecloths, and table settings. During the reception, he brought us beautiful toasting flutes during the toasts and gave us water while on the dance floor to keep us hydrated. After the reception was over, he packed us a to-go package to make sure we got a little bit of all the food we had picked out! And of course the food was delicious!! A month out and I still have family and friends raving about how amazing the food was. For cocktail hour, we did cheese and crackers, veggies, pretzel bites and beer cheese. For dinner, we did marinara pasta, alfredo pasta, grilled chicken, roasted vegetables, Caesar salad, and rolls. There were also gluten-free options as well. The price also included water, tea, lemonade, soda, and coffee! We bought the alcohol ourselves, but they provided two bartenders and took care of chilling the alcohol before cocktail hour. This company has years of experience and it shows. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an outstanding catering company!!

    AMAZING catering experience!

    Edwards Catering is one of the best kept secrets in Richmond weddings in my opinion. We knew we had to consider Edwards from our very first day touring venues, as literally almost every single venue we went to raved about the service provided with Edwards'. From our initial consultation, Sam made us feel truly special and like making our wedding catering what we'd dreamed it would be was something that was extremely important to him. He spent so much time on that initial call sharing advice and trying to craft a menu that incorporated everything we wanted on our day (even prior to officially booking with him!). The service of course did not stop there-Sam was responsive to questions throughout our year and a half of planning (occasionally responses are delayed, but do not let that deter you from his services!) and continued to be flexible with choices and add-ons throughout the process. On the day of our wedding, I cannot rave enough about the service he provided-every time I turned around and vaguely thought about how I was thirsty, Sam was there with a glass of water for us or a drink, as well as setting up a spread of appetizers and drinks for our wedding party after the ceremony, pre-plating our meals for myself and my husband so that we could make sure we ate during our reception, and crafting a wonderful care package of food and our choice of beverages for the end of the night in our honeymoon suite. The prices are also wonderful for the food & service quality that Edwards provides. I truly cannot say enough good things about Edwards Catering & about Sam-you will NOT be sorry to go with him for catering services!

    Incredible Wedding Caterer - Best Experience Ever!

    We worked with Edwards Catering for our wedding, and it was a fantastic experience! Sam Edwards is kind, thoughtful, and knows literally everything about how to make wedding catering affordable and delicious. We got RAVE reviews on the food from our guests, and he even made sure that my husband and I had the chance to eat! He brought us appetizers and drinks while we were taking photos, and made us care packages to take with us at the end of the night for an extra meal. His staff even made sure we had water and any drinks we wanted throughout the whole evening. Absolutely AMAZING food for an incredible price, and just the most genuine people! We can't say enough good things about Edwards Catering. Sam is the best of the best.
