    Pure wedding bliss

    I had looked for local catering and Nelson's really stood out. They had a diverse menu and it was adaptable which I found amazing being a vegetarian. They never missed a beat when it came to checking in and working with the venue for set up. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful! I couldn't have booked a better caterer to work with.

    Absolutely love Nelson's!!

    Nelson's Catering were EXCELLENT! The representative I worked with was always willing to make changes to our menu as it got tweaked along the way & was very responsive. The food itself was amazing & we received lots of compliments on the food from our guests! The display of everything was really elegant (we had a buffet) & the staff were incredibly nice!

    Highly recommend

    Nelson’s provided the food and drinks for our 100 guest wedding at Ewing Manor in Bloomington, Il. They were courteous and on time, provided quality service at the pop-up bars, and served delicious food at dinner. We chose to do the buffet and did not regret it. Compared to other catering vendors in town, we got a fantastic price, and though we didn’t have a chance to test the food beforehand, it was excellent (especially the dessert!). Highly recommend.
