    Great food and service!

    Great Blue Heron was great to work with and the food was SO GOOD. Liz was very receptive and helpful to any changes to the menu and linen order. We particular enjoyed our tasting and everybody enjoyed their dinner at our wedding. Our favorites were actually the appetizers - some of our guests loved the appetizers so much they couldn’t believe they were also getting dinner! The bacon-wrapped dates are to die for. Service at the wedding was also prompt and courteous. Thanks, Great Blue Heron Catering!

    NOVA Parks Catering

    We used GBH since they are the in-house caterer for all of the NOVA Parks (our reception was at the Atrium at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens) and had a wonderful experience. The tasting was easy to schedule and I would say that the food tasted just as good on the day of the wedding as it did during the tasting. They have a fantastic selection to choose from and were super flexible to work with - new covid restrictions were announced the week before our wedding and we were able to change our stationary displays to passed hors d'oeuvres, buffet dinner to plated, and full bar to beer & wine, all with a guest list that was reduced from 65 to 22! The catering staff were polite and considerate and we had no issues come up!

    Wonderful wedding experience!

    We booked our wedding reception at The Woodlands at Algonkian Park, which is part of the Northern Virginia Park Authority facilities. Great Blue Heron is dedicated caterer. I found this to be convienent since I did not want to research different catering vendors.

    Since COVID hit in the middle of planning our October 2020 wedding, the tasting was curbside pick up. Instructions were given on how to reheat the entrees and how to communicate our choices to the catering admin afterwards. Not the same as eating at the venue but we had no choice. All the food we tasted was delicious. We had a hard time choosing! Liz Gearhart answered all my questions about guests with food allergies, special drink requests (like adding hard cider), etc. Very responsive!

    On the day of our wedding, the catering staff was accommodating and wonderful. The Catering Captain, DJ, made sure we got to eat during the cocktail hour and we had our meals and drinks refilled at the reception. We got a "to-go" box at the end of the night. Great to have leftovers the next day!

    A note about the administrative fee: this is NOT the tips for the wait staff, chef, etc. You should actually give your cash tips in labeled envelopes to your Events Manager prior to the event. The Woodlands gave us a sheet with suggested ranges for tips for each catering team member. Very helpful!

    We love Blue Heron Catering and their executive chef is so creative. Every once in a while we get to taste their great food! Thanks so much to Brian and his staff for being so accommodating to Brides, Grooms, guests, and our staff, especially when the wedding cake arrives. It's a pleasure to work with you! And, what a gorgeous venue!
