Ashley and her team are AMAZING! Not only is her food to die for, I don’t think I would have made it through the last few months leading up to our 2020 wedding is she wasn’t there to talk me off the ledge. We attempted to hold out with our original guest count of 120 as long as possible and then in August we were faced with the decision to postpone, relocate, or re-route to a micro-wedding and Ashley was there with options and advise every step of the way. We might be biased, but it was the most special, intimate wedding I’ve ever been a part of. Everyone who attended have not stopped talking about how amazing the food was and how much fun the staff were throughout the whole event. We cannot wait to plan another event with Ashley. The only regret is not asking for a goody bag to take home and enjoy again.Sent on 09/28/2020

You want Ashley to be on your team!
Ashley was absolutely a joy to work with. Her food is amazing, her personality is bright, she has wonderful energy, and she surrounds herself with stellar staff. In addition to her wonderful cooking, Ashley is extremely flexible with brides, she really will go above and beyond to make sure you feel supported from the start. I was planning my wedding in Philly living from Providence. So she worked with my venue (Power Plant Productions) to set up a complete menu tasting and walk-through for myself, my fiance, and my mom. It was so reassuring to get to pick our menu ourselves, and taste what the entire evening would be like before it happened. She was so accommodating and offered to change anything we'd like, but we had no changes! She also set up a timeline and coordinated everything like a pro. Then, COVID-19 really threw a wrench in our wedding plans. Ashley was similarly flexible and positive. She worked to scale down our 150-person cocktail style/tapas wedding to a 23-person sit-down dinner micro-wedding (with a more traditional cocktail hour). We absolutely loved the food, and also my family could not stop commenting on how much they loved her staff and the service. Please consider her for your event, and make sure you go heavy on the cocktail hour foods - Ashley is truly talented at curating an awesome tapas/cocktail-style event. All in all, Ashley made our wedding day less stressful, more fun, and safe. We're so happy we chose to work with her!Sent on 10/10/2020

Above and beyond
I cannot say enough good things about Ashley and Power Catering. Ashley was helpful from start to finish in planning our wedding. The day would not have happened without her. She developed the perfect fall menu for our cocktail/tapas-style wedding with AMAZING hors d’ouvres and passed tapas. She made the wedding food perfectly us and was able to change any of the dishes to our request. She even made our (pretty complex) signature cocktails perfectly ahead of time to eliminate any wait at the bar at the actual wedding. My one worry going into the event was that since we didn’t do a sit down dinner, people wouldn’t get enough food. But everyone at the wedding commented on how incredible the food was and how full they were at the end. Her servers and staff were incredible – making sure that everyone at the wedding (including myself and my husband) were eating and getting everything we needed.Sent on 10/28/2019
In addition to amazing food, Ashley goes above and beyond. She helped me pick out the décor for tables, provided linens, and even offered to go to Target for us to get things for our bathroom baskets! She also provided our day-of coordinator (Victoria) who was incredible! I would recommend Ashley and Power Catering to anyone who is getting married in the Philly area. She is talented, caring, and clearly LOVES weddings. I cannot say enough good things about her!! Thank you, Ashley and team!
