    Wedding perfection

    Main Course was one of the best wedding decisions we made. We’re both foodies and love to cook ourselves so we wanted to ensure that we did not offer mediocre or predictable food to our wedding guests. We were a little worried that it’d be difficult to please guests from the US, Europe, and Latin America but Main Course truly blew our and our guests’ expectations out of the water!

    We can’t keep count of how many guests complimented both the food and service at our wedding. Our guests continue to rave about the appetizers, the festive presentation of the plates and platters, the gorgeous setup of the harvest table and dessert buffet, and the excellent quality of the ingredients. To quote some of our guests: “You’ve raised the bar on the types of food that should be included in a harvest table,” “Best wedding food ever”, “I barely finished an appetizer and was already presented with something else that I really wanted to try”. We also loved that we received compliments on a wide variety of appetizers and every single plate that we served, highlighting that the food was stellar across the board. Finally, the signature cocktails that we put together with Hogan were also a big hit!

    Collaborating with Main Course leading up to the wedding was seamless and stress-free. Amanda and Emily are a power team–very responsive, true experts in what they do, and they both represent the epitome of friendliness. They worked patiently through all our nitty gritty requests (e.g. having a separate wine glass for red and white wine, only using local cheeses, folding the napkins in a certain way, etc) and delivered on everything. They also recommended doing a private moment after the ceremony and we’re so grateful that we were able to take in the magic of the day (and taste all appetizers) before mingling with our guests. We also highly appreciated that Emily checked in multiple times throughout the night to ensure that we had everything we wished for and were eating sufficient food.

    If you’re looking for a wedding caterer who can delight *all* your guests and offer outstanding service leading up to and on the day of your wedding, look no further–Main Course is simply the best.

    The most incredible food and service!

    Main Course was the cornerstone in making my wedding happen, and it was an absolute dream perfect day! The wedding vision was very DIY from the outset - a tent reception on a golf course in a private community - and Main Course helped us plan everything from food & drinks, to planning for and renting the tent and all furniture rentals. They were even available for day of wedding planning services and consulted with us on random other topics that came up as we planned. The true highlight was the quality of their food and high level of service. I don't typically love food at weddings so my husband was astonished when I ate my entire dinner and couldn't get enough of it! All of our guests remarked that it was some of the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Everyone was super impressed. They helped us completely customize the dinner, appetizer, drink, dessert and even after party menus and wanted it all to reflect our personal taste and preferences. They also had such a high level of customer service, no one was ever waiting to be served and everything ran so smoothly. They took special care of me and my husband to make sure we got to sample all of the appetizers during cocktail hour. They even were amazing with a major hiccup that came up. It was an extremely windy day and the cocktail tent blew over during the speeches. But the caterers didn't skip a beat and all quickly went to the tent, secured it, and moved the bar into the main tent. They handled the stressful/unforeseen situation like pros and it didn't end up distracting or taking away from the wedding one bit. HIGHLY recommend using Main Course for your wedding or event!

    Wedding day lunch!

    I ordered lunch for all the folks staying on-site at the venue on my wedding day (about 35 people). We ordered sandwiches and vegetables with the best aioli ever! Delivery was on-time and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!
