    Great service, great experience

    We had a wonderful experience with Jonathan, Cayla, and the Lavishly Dunn staff. The tasting was fun and Jonathan's expertise was vital in determining the amount of food we should have, as well as how to execute a family-style meal for our small wedding of under 30 guests. The LD staff was great in helping us with our backyard wedding, and came to the house months in advance to help determine workable locations for their staff, power outlets, and brainstormed any issues we'd encounter. The staff were so friendly the night-of, and we loved their bartender, Tucker! Our guests raved about the delicious food as well as the raw bar. Our only snafu was the delivery of their 2000lb oven... with a backyard wedding and a difficult gravel driveway to navigate, we saw it as an issue at the home visit months in advance. We agreed that it would be dropped off days before the event, but that did not occur. We all would have been better off listening to our original plan, instead of trying on the afternoon of the event. In the end it all worked out, but it was far too stressful for everyone involved!

    Phenomenal!

    Lavishly Dunn catered my small wedding reception back in 2020 when COVID first started. A month before the reception we had to go from a 160 person reception to 10 people due to COVID. Lavishly Dunn was so helpful and accommodating to our last minute request. Jonathan delivered the food right to our house and set everything up for us. When I say the food was delicious, that is a huge understatement. My family is still raving about how yummy the food was. I can't recommend Lavishly Dunn enough! We can't wait to have them cater again!

    Summer Wedding, 2019

    From the first tasting to the day my daughter got married, our experience with Lavishly Dunn was fantastic. Both Jonathan and Cayla were so professional and easy to work with. They accommodated our menu preferences with ease, and everything was delicious. I never actually expect that much when a caterer is serving 150 people, but Lavishly Dunn surpassed my expectations. The meals were served in a timely fashion and they were served hot! Numerous guests commented on how good their meal was, not to mention the appetizers and oyster bar! They really know what they're doing, so that you don't have to worry about a thing. Can't thank them, and recommend them enough!
