High Praises (and great beans!)
If I could safely fly to a mountain without worrying about a global pandemic, I would do so just to stand on that mountain and proclaim my appreciation for Old Blue. I don’t mean to be hyperbolic, but working with Old Blue (Kari, specifically) has been the only non-stressful experience in the entire wedding planning process.Sent on 06/23/2020
My fiancé and I (and my fiancé’s parents) arranged a tasting before deciding on the menu and, let me tell you, the peach bourbon beans alone had me sold. Obviously I’m excited to marry my fiancé, but I think the both of us are secretly just as excited for the beans.
Kari was very friendly, walked us through the catering process, and generally went above and beyond to accommodate us. Kari offered to let us borrow wedding decor/signage Old Blue had collected from former weddings, transport additional decor/props to the venue in their truck, helped us save money, and answered the phone every single time we called, which has not been the case for some of our other vendors...
When COVID-19 cases began to rise, my fiancé and I waffled about whether to push our wedding date (to no one’s surprise, rescheduling is so stressful) and Kari suggested that, for our own peace of mind, we book an alternative date. We’re currently in the process of postponing our wedding from October 2020 to 2021, and have had a difficult time getting in contact with some of our vendors. But Old Blue has been with us every step of the way (and some of those steps have been wobbly), and we will prioritize a date that works for them. We cannot wait to have Old Blue at our TBD wedding. And those beans!! :)

Delicious food, helpful catering leads, highly reccomend!
We primarily worked with Kari-- she was awesome! She fielded so many questions from us and helped to guide us to have the right amount of food and drink. Her service was incredible. She helped with the decor and guided us through their decor-sharing program which saved us money on centerpieces. I really felt that she listened to our concerns and needs. We would absolutely love to hire Old Blue (especially Kari) for another event.Sent on 10/20/2020
Additionally, the food is incredible. We had so many guests going for seconds on the ribs and mac n' cheese. Additionally, their crisps are the perfect fall dessert.
Thank you to Kari and everyone at Old Blue!

From the moment I began working with Shannon of Old Blue BBQ I knew the rest of our coordinating together was going to be great! Shannon was amazing and completely on top of everything. Every time I needed to contact her or coordinate with her regarding the venue, menu, floor plan, etc. she was always responsive and super helpful. On the wedding day she managed her team perfectly ensuring that every aspect was completed from setup to service to tear down. Shannon and her team were stupendous!!! The food was equally amazing and this BBQ will not disappoint but leave you wanting more! Delicious! So good I plan to order some for my July 4th gathering. Thank you Shannon and the rest of your team!
Old Blue BBQ is FANTASTIC to work with! Kelly worked with me in advance to plan the perfect timeline and floor plan, and the Old Blue staff were simply amazing day of. They had everything under the tent under control, setting up tables, chairs, and centerpieces. They really made my job as a coordinator so much easier by having everything under control. It helps that their food is delicious too! I would love to work with Old Blue BBQ again.
New kids on the block is hard working and serving up the real thing.
