    Favorite wedding vendor!

    We are so grateful to Pure Joy for catering our wedding. Of all the vendors we hired, Pure Joy was one of our favorites because they were so responsive, organized, and easy to work with. Our main contact at Pure Joy was Patrick, and if you work with him, you’ll be in excellent hands. We completely trusted him throughout the planning process and never once worried about the food situation at our wedding. Our wedding was somewhat logistically complicated, but we had complete faith in Pure Joy in building out the kitchen and taking care of everything they needed to feed our guests. All of the food was so delicious and we were also very impressed with the decor at all the food stations. We felt that Pure Joy went above and beyond for us, and we were blown away by their professionalism and level of experience. We strongly recommend hiring Pure Joy for your catering needs - every dollar will be worth it!

    An absolute joy to work with!

    We could not be more grateful that we were able to work with Patrick and the rest of the team at Pure Joy to cater our wedding. From the beginning, Patrick helped us take our ideas and turn them into a delicious menu for our guests. We appreciated that Pure Joy has a large body of dishes and menus to provide us with structure and suggestions when making our selections, but still provided us with the room to add our own ideas and personal touches. When we realized we needed to pivot our plans for a large wedding to a small, intimate backyard ceremony due to COVID-19, Pure Joy was with us every step of the way in modifying our menu to fit our new menu and guest count. They were flexible with their pricing and contract to align with our new needs. On the day of, they were able to provide our guests with food while following all safety regulations and guidelines. Pure Joy also coordinated our rentals through Bright and having their support and expertise in making sure we had all of the styling elements to make our wedding look beautiful was so appreciated. On top of all of the support leading up to the wedding, the food itself was delicious!

    We are so grateful for your kind words!!! We love Patrick too and we’re so happy he was able to make your nuptials all they could be in this challenging year, thanks for not giving up on your dreams. We wish you a very wonderful married life!

    Pure Joy - The Name Says it All

    Unbelievable! Patrick was so incredibly helpful from the very moment we started planning. He's a true professional and knows just about everything that goes into hosting the best weddings in Santa Barbara. His team made our reception absolutely beautiful - from the appetizer stations, to the food displays, and bar. And they coordinated it perfectly - there was never a moment in which anyone was left wanting. Maybe they were just being nice, but all our guests GUSHED over the food and desserts. Truly a great catering operation and could not be more grateful to Patrick and his team! Thank you Pure Joy!

    Pure Joy Catering, Inc's reply:

    Thank you Galen & Sara! Your wedding at the Historical was absolutely one of the most stunning events of the season! And boy, that linen you chose for the bar was stunning! Thank you for all of your kind words, you two were a dream to work with and your menu was on point. From the fresh squeezed margaritas with mini grilled fish tacos to the seared ahi and chef manned pasta and carving stations, your guests were surely going to be delighted. You picked a fabulous menu. Thank you to you both and wishing you the most happily ever after.

Pure Joy is one of my favorite catering companies to work with. They make the planning process nice and smooth and they produce amazing events. Lynette and her team really go the extra mile to make sure each client is well taken care of. I trust that an event will run smooth when Pure Joy is part of the team.
