    Delicious and Delightful Experience with Forklift

    Forklift was one of the earliest and best choices we made for our wedding. We were looking for a sustainable option for a vegan-ish meal (vegan + fish with some straight vegetarian options thrown in). Forklift’s local, seasonal offerings fit the bill perfectly and were absolutely scrumptious.

    Deborah was a delight to work with and a huge help in all stages of the planning process, giving us recommendations for other vendors, choosing rentals, and making a rain plan (which was nearly necessary and we would have been perfectly prepared for!). Day of, everything came together beautifully and our guests have been raving about the food since.

    I also feel compelled to mention that they used local edible flowers to decorate their hors d'oeuvres serving platters, which I found so distinctive and characteristic of their creativity and attention to detail. Really cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Hi Krysia,

    Thank you for your thoughtful review! We enjoyed working with you and Kevin on your wedding too! We're so glad your guests are still raving about the food. You made great choices!

    We're also glad you appreciated the edible flowers. We get them from Eva's Garden in South Dartmouth. She grows the most beautiful flowers and herbs!

    Hope to see you at another event soon!

    From the time we connected with Kristen in the phone to the follow up email after our wedding, Forklift was nothing but easy, professional, reliable and amazing to work with. Forklift helped turn our dream of a cozy, intimate, at home, outdoor wedding (on what was a very hot day) into reality. They instantaneously took over upon arrival with great professionalism and care. The food was impeccable, presented so beautiful with great quality. The staff took care of all guests. Kristen was highly knowledgeable, informative, helpful, and supportive from beginning to end, as was all the staff. Thank you for a truly magical experience. We are trying to find an excuse to do it again!!!!!
    Truly,
    Christina and Bill

    Christina and Bill,

    Thank you so much for your review. We were just looking back at the pictures from your wedding and thinking about what a beautiful backyard wedding it was! We're glad that you're still thinking about it too. We hope we'll all have the opportunity to do it again soon too!

    I have no regrets whatsoever in choosing ForkLift for my April wedding at the Charles River Museum in Waltham MA. The menu options were seemingly limitless. The quality of food was outstanding (flavor, interest, generous serving sizes, presentation). The service at the even was praise by so many of my guests. Working with them in the planning process was a pleasure. Kristin made the whole process very straight forward. I appreciated their flexibility with me in flavor choices, dining lay out and service options.
