    Best Food, Service, and Price

    I cannot recommend Enlighted Catering more highly. I continue to get rave reviews from guests about the food a month after the wedding. Matt made the process easy and the service was exceptional. Do yourself a favor and get food for your wedding that will help make your day even more memorable!

    Amazing Service

    We did the Viking Themed dinner, which fit our fantasy themed wedding wonderfully. The food was amazing. The service was just as good. And the price was better than most places we looked. Cake cutting service at no extra cost was a bonus.

    Amazing food and customer service

    We just used Matt on 3/13/21. First his food is amazing this man's passion is cooking and you can taste that in his food. I get a comment
    from people almost every day about the food. His team was amazing and professional at the wedding they showed up and went to work I didn't even know they were at the venue yet and everything was set up and ready to go. We dealt with a lot of vendors during this process and most were amazing but hands down Matt was the best, he responded quickly to all communication and made us feel like we were his only customers. I am still blown away at what little he cost for what we received in food and services. Make sure you set up a tasting with him it will be worth it.
