The food & Service

We both loved working with Jenny and her staff. The food was amazing and all our guest were very happy with the choices we picked. Jenny was so sweet and very accommodating with us and made wedding planning easy! There were no issues with anything and I would recommend her to anyone! I loved our wedding and I am so glad we had her to be a part of the wedding day. I really also appreciate her staff taking care of my mom and making sure she was drinking enough water all night! I was not stress all day or night!

Thanks again Jenny!

Incredible!!

We used full circle catering for our wedding and Jenny and her staff were amazing! Jenny was very personable and fun to work with! We did not hire a wedding planner and she picked up a lot of the organizational and day-of details that we needed help with so that we felt no stress! Her food was incredible and everyone told me how much they loved it. She also helped us setup our cake and decorate it which was dropped off by a different vendor. Highly recommend!

Great Experience!

Jenny and Full Circle Catering were absolutely wonderful to work with for our December 2022 wedding at Big Spring Farm! She was so patient with me as I had many questions. The food was absolutely delicious! A big highlight was our desserts; we did not want a traditional wedding cake, so we got mini pies that were a HIT! Thank you Jenny and your team!
