    We're still getting compliments on the food!

    Wedding planning can be really overwhelming! One of the best decisions me and my husband made was hiring Edward from French Picnic Catering for our September wedding with 150 guests. The food is absolutely the best. We’re still getting compliments on the different dishes weeks after the wedding. The staff is attentive, genuine and will go over and above to make your day great. Lastly, Edward is truly wonderful. From the start, his attitude was positive, relaxed and you can tell how much he really does care about having only the best for your day. He was also very accommodating and provided a vegan option for me and a few of my guests. Thanks to Edward and his staff, everyone had an amazing dining experience at our wedding!

    Fantastic catering and more

    Edward and his team are outstanding from start to finish - the food is fantastic, from delicious passed hors d'oeuvres to a real feast come dinner time. But they really shine in their friendliness and professionalism. We had a DIY wedding on our lawn and they made it feel like Michelin service. The choreography and quality is really outstanding.
