    Absolutle delight to work with - constantly blew us away

    We worked with FFT for our wedding at the Planetarium. They blew us away in every aspect. Their staff (Annie Schey was a goddess) are all over everything, always going the extra mile. Food was delicious, we received dozens of compliments. No-brainer decision to hire them again - they were a complete delght!

    Perfection

    Working with Food for Thought was our best decision. We used them for caterering as well as for many of our rentals for our reception. The food was SO good. I have had the experience where wedding food isn’t always that tasty but we were blown away by how delicious everything was. Anna was a dream to work with. She was very responsive and accommodating to making sure we were getting exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We received so many compliments about how delicious the food was-which was so important to us. We had a fairly large wedding (about 260) and to prepare that many meals and still be delicious says something. We are so happy with our decision to use FFT and would recommend them to everyone!

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you in the future!
