We had an amazing barn wedding here in Vermont with multiple amazing vendors, but throughout the evening and even days after the wedding, our guests are still going on and on about how amazing the food was. Let's Pretend exceeded all of our expectations. They incorporated some of our family recipes into the appetizers and everything was cooked absolutely perfectly on the day of the wedding. They even brought a tray of all the appetizers to me and my (now) husband to make sure we were able to try everything. We cannot recommend Let's Pretend highly enough - worth every single dollar. Thank you guys!Sent on 10/05/2019

Amazing Wedding Catering
We had to replan our whole wedding to downsize due to COVID - which, ultimately is a decision we do not regret. As a result, we had to find new vendors, and catering was a big one to shift. Luckily, we found Let's Pretend and had them cater our new, smaller wedding. We did not get to do a tasting due to timing.Sent on 09/28/2020
Let's Pretend was incredible. Before even getting to the food and service, Brandi and Liane were communicative, informative, and answered any and all questions I had. The options presented looked delicious, and we quickly decided on LP for our wedding day food. It was a decision we do not regret in the least. Everything we got was absolutely delicious - the hors d'oeuvres, the meal, the late night snacks we decided to get. Our guests raved about everything to us after. The service was incredible as well - our day did not go exactly according to plan, but everyone was so wonderful, and accommodating, and we actually had a tray of apps brought over to us during our photos without us having to say a word, which was so thoughtful. Everyone was constantly making sure myself and my husband had everything we needed. They took precautions to make sure their servers were safe during all this as well.
Overall, I do not have a single complaint about Let's Pretend and the service on our wedding day. Without hesitation, I would recommend them if you're looking for delicious, seasonal food that everyone would like!

The food was DELICIOUS! They source everything from local farms and vendors which was really important to me. Our friends and family were raving about how good it was for weeks. They even did our wedding cake! I can't recommend them enough!
I love the owner Leanne. She is incredibly positive, organized, professional and smart. You are in good hands if you hire them.
