    Wedding dreams come true!

    I cannot recommend Forklift enough!! If you are looking for creativity, flexibility, and the most amazing special touches for your wedding, look no further than Forklift. Seriously. From planning to execution, everything was truly flawless. Kristen worked with us to create a completely customized menu of all our favorite foods and drinks (AND with multiple celiacs in my family, a 100% gluten free menu — apps, dinner, and dessert). They went way above and beyond - recommending other vendors, helping us with design questions, to executing on even our craziest requests (e.g. tacos and frozen margaritas, and somehow made it classy?). Everything was plated beautifully, the day-of staff were amazing, and all of the little details came together perfectly. Our guests are still talking about the food! A sincere thank you to all at Forklift for making all of our catering dreams come true :)

    Perfect for any wedding

    We hired Forklift Catering for our wedding, and boy was that a great decision. Deborah was so responsive, helpful, and professional throughout the whole process of creating a menu to delivery on the wedding day. The food turned out to be delicious (unsurprising given their reputation) and was a hit with all the guests. Forklift was also very accommodating and had a lot of options for gluten-free and vegetarian appetizers, entrees, sides, and desserts. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a caterer for a special event.

    Delicious and creative food, wonderful people

    Forklift catered my belated wedding reception this year. We originally planned a traditional big wedding and reception in April 2020 which of course didn’t happen. Despite the disappointment we experienced during that time, our contact Deborah at forklift was so on top of communication, so kind and helped us change our plans (more than once) with minimal stress. They were so flexible and professional. On top of that, the FOOD is incredible. The biggest thing we were willing to splurge on for our wedding, was having delicious food and drinks for our guests. Also, my husband and I come from opposite areas of the world and wanted to represent both of those cultures cuisines. Forklift delivered above and beyond, they were so creative in the menu they came up with for us and most importantly, when it actually came to tasting their food it was delicious. Their chefs are really on top of the game, it was all at a different level than catered food I’ve had before. Although the catering was a big chunk of our budget and we chose to splurge in that , I want to point out that the price was not much different than some other places we looked at that offered a lot less and were less impressive. So I would absolutely recommend forklift to anyone for their wedding.
