    The best wedding decision we made!

    Oh man, the praises I could sing about La Pera. We fell in LOVE with the many tastes and textures of their food - their menu ideas are so unique and delicious; I was dreaming about our wedding day brunch menu for months after our tasting. The team is thoughtful and responsive and was incredibly helpful in making our day special, including bottling their incredible salsa for favors and helping personalize small details, like a boudain fritter tower in place of a groom's cake. Friends and family raved about their food and my partner and I found ourselves looking forward to leftovers when we had a few guests not be able to make it last minute.

    All this to say - please book with La Pera. Their team and work is incredibly special and unique, and they contributed more to the overall vibe of our wedding than I could have ever believed possible. You will love them!

    Perfection

    We absolutely loved everything and so did our guests!! 1st of all they were so easy to work with, super quick to respond and so accommodating! I live 300 miles away so it was harder to plan out tastings and stuff and they worked with us so easily! When we met for the tasting everybody was so sweet and excited for us and they prepared all of our top 10 choices! The wedding ran so smooth and we ended up having a lot of "yes" RSVPs not showing up so the food count was kind of even more perfect. I'm a chef too, so my main wedding concern was food and cake and they knocked it out of the park! I kept having people come up to me throughout the night, everybody was raving about how delicious the food was! My husband and I made time to eat too and they even packaged us up meals for ourselves! Thank you so much La Pera!!
