    We used Nellie's catering for our beach wedding at the Tortuga Resort. If you are looking for a wonderful catering team and experience, look no more! We live 2.5 hours away so coordinating appointments for all of our vendors was a challenge. Nellie's owner, Fredda, and our catering manager, Mary Kay, made this more than easy. Fredda handled our first phone appointments; she was so thorough and helpful that we felt like we had everything planned months and months in advance! She gave us great ideas and advice when we needed it.

    We met Mary Kay at our on site appointment and knew we were meant to be! She was energetic, fun, smart, and extremely laid back - more than we could have hoped for. We knew that when she said she would "make it work," she meant it. And did she ever! Her team rocked our wedding. With the onset of monsoon rains and 30 mile-an-hour winds, it seemed like her team didn't blink an eye. I can't imagine how challenging it must have been to set up, coordinate, feed and supply alcohol to 75 people during these conditions, but she made it look like a cake walk.

    The food was delicious!! Even we were impressed by how good it was, and our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it. The bartender was everyone's favorite person :) When our guests would walk up to get a drink, she knew what they were drinking and had it ready before they got there.

    Nellie's catering team is outstanding, especially manager Mary Kay. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY!!! RECOMMEND!

    More than just catering!

    Nellie’s Catering went above and beyond for our wedding day. I didn’t even need to use a wedding planner because they did everything! They made the process of planning a wedding fun and easy, with meetings at the venue to plan layouts, help with vendors, decoration planning, and more. The food was absolutely delicious, they did a fabulous open bar, and their day of planner helped keep our day stress free and seamless. They took such incredible care of us, and I highly recommend them!

    Wedding catering

    I don’t know if I can express in words how grateful I am for Terri at Nellie’s. She is incredible. Goes absolutely above and beyond. I wish I could hug her forever. (!!) They put together the wedding we dreamed of, in the budget we wanted, and we still don’t quite understand how. And the service — what an amazing staff!
