Marshall, Liz, and the whole Odeen team were simply wonderful. Not only were they incredibly easy to work with, Marsh was so accommodating when it came to creating a delicious menu while still staying within our budget (and avoiding all the food allergies in the bridal party!). Marsh and Liz were extraordinarily helpful generating ideas, offering advice throughout, and keeping the big day running smoothly. Their crew was extremely professional, courteous, and went above and beyond. Then there is the food. Delicious doesn't even begin to cover it! We could not have asked for a better caterer or people to have on board helping us through our wedding day.
Much thanks to Marsh, Liz, and the whole clan!

Above & Beyond: A true wedding magician
It is hard to put into words how grateful we are for all that Marshall and the entire Odeen's crew did to make our wedding the perfect celebration. Marshall went above and beyond in every portion of our wedding journey. The food was delicious; our guests raved about every dish that was served. Marshall was patient, a master problem solver, positive and flexible. If I had to choose one wedding vendor that I got to work with again it would be Odeen's, they really made our night magical. Thank you!!

More than just a caterer
To this day, I don’t recall exactly how I stumbled across Odeen’s or what made me shoot Marshall an email, but boy am I glad I did. Not only was the food absolutely incredible (guests are still raving about the food weeks later) but Marshall and his staff went above and beyond what a caterer should ever be called upon to do. Marshall became our confidant, our fixer, a cool head talking us down when our venue was up to no good, and ultimately a friend with whom we were as excited to share our day with as any of our guests. Marshall facilitated such personal touches as sourcing a baker to make my wife’s late mother’s pie recipe, putting up with my ever changing alcohol requests, getting his daughter to babysit my demanding sister in law’s children, and serving as a go between with us and the venue through many tense moments. Weekend of, Marshall’s lovely wife Liz, daughter Haley, chefs John and Barbara and the rest of the staff continued to work tirelessly to make sure our wedding went off without a hitch. But I digress... back to the food.
Marshall and his staff take their food and its planning very seriously. Everything was impeccably prepared and far exceeded our expectations. Planning a black tie optional wedding, my mother wasn’t exactly what you would call excited about our choice to serve BBQ, but even she was completely won over by Marshall’s attention to detail and absolutely delicious food. Throughout the planning stages, you start to get a sense of Marshall’s approach to food, but it really isn’t until the wedding and seeing everyone going back for seconds and thirds with enormous smiles on their faces, that you really start to understand that (although cliché) Marshall and his team truly love what they do and go full bore into preparing and executing the event. It’s hard to reconcile Marshall’s laid back demeanor and the absolute perfectionist that will accept nothing less than perfect when it’s go time, but we are thankful for it. I can say with complete confidence that the Odeen’s team will not disappoint on any level.
By the way, the brisket and the shrimp n grits are killer!
We cannot thank the Odeen family enough for making our wedding even better than our wildest dreams.
