    Outstanding food and service!

    The best wedding decision we made was choosing Jenny and her team as our catering staff! We had to reschedule our wedding twice during the pandemic, and Jenny was always flexible with us. It has now been 2 months since the wedding , and we STILL have people compliment the incredible food and service! Jenny made us feel special and taken care of. The set up was beautiful and she even provided a picnic for just the two of us at the end of the night. We can't thank you enough, Full Circle!

    Exceeded expectations

    We decided to hire Full Circle based on their commitment to locally sourced food. We were planning our wedding remotely and didn't have a chance sample any food in advance, so I was a bit nervous about how things would turn out. I couldn't imagine a better wedding dinner! Jenny was very flexible and responsive throughout the process. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. All of my guests were happy, and people were still talking about how great the food was days later! I would love to hire Full Circle again in the future!

    Thank you for your kind words and for allowing us to help you and matt celebrate your marriage. what a beautiful night full of the magic of the surroundings and the love of family and friends!

    Terrific Caterer for a Wedding!!!!

    We used Full Circle Catering for a destination wedding in Clifton Forge, VA. The menu selection was excellent for both the cocktail hour and the buffet dinner. The food was terrific and we were very pleased with the professionalism of the entire staff. In addition, the company also arranged all the rental requirements for the wedding. We would highly recommend this catering company to any couple looking for a terrific caterer in the Lexington, VA and surrounding area!

    We so enjoyed helping you all celebrate in the mountains of Virginia!
    Hope
    To see you in the future and best wishes to the happy couple!
