My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Purple Onion Catering for our wedding a few weeks ago. I cannot say enough good things about this company! My husband and I had a southern charm themed wedding at Morais Vineyard. That’s all we knew when we came to Purple Onion. We knew our theme and that we wanted the food to taste good. When we came to Purple Onion I met a little fairy named Paige who waved her wand and literally made magic happen. Working full time jobs and planning a wedding wasn’t easy for us, so having a catering company who could work with our schedule was key. Paige was flexible with our schedules and was instrumental in making our day magic. The communication was prompt and any problems were fixed immediately.
The food. OMG the food. The food....................... AMAZING!!! The chef created our special southern charm menu with food that hits in the soul but quaint to fit our theme. I could talk forever but Go with Purple Onion you won’t be disappointed. Get Paige if you can she is AMAZING!!

We worked with Margaret and her team for our Wedding on December 30th. The food and service were truly exceptional! All our guests commented that the food was delicious and couldn’t believe it was done by a catering company. We highly recommend working with them!

Wonderful Winter Wedding - Powered by Purple Onion
THANK YOU Purple Onion for such an amazing night. You were amazing and everyone was raving about how much they loved the food and dessert (especially the Peppermint Ding Dongs!). Your team also deserves very special mention, they were on top of it all day/night and we really appreciate all of their hard work, their friendly demeanor and the way they went about their work without disrupting any of the festivities on-site.
A couple of key highlights/benefits to highlight:
1. Margaret Z. is a top notch professional - immediately upon meeting with her, we were blown away by her preparedness and attention to detail
2. Out of the 10+ vendors we evaluated, Purple Onion bubbled to the top on quality of food. Many were close, but from Passed hor d'ourves, to salads, to entrees all the way through dessert, the food was fantastic. I also loved how they had seasonal and local options available.
3. Flexibility - Purple Onion facilitated ~10 meals for our guests who had food restrictions and for kids, and brought them special plated meals (we had buffet stations for other guests)
4. Great thought partner - we obviously have little experience with getting married/weddings, Margaret and team were great thought partners as we brainstormed how to approach our big day and set up
5. Lastly - day of, staff was just amazing. You will not find much better in the business, if at all!
We would recommend Purple Onion to all of our friends and family who is considering a catered event/wedding moving forward!
Thank you again for all of the time and help during the build up and for executing so flawlessly on Saturday. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday and have a Happy New Year!
I absolutely love working with the Purple Onion Catering Company. They are trendy, efficient and always willing to go above and beyond to make each client feel special.
Purple Onion is one of Blue Valley's "approved Caterers" and they are wonderful. I especially love working with Margaret, she is top notch and has an eye for detail. They offer excellent food and service, in fact, they were here this past weekend and the food was terrific. Guests were raving about dinner. I highly recommend Purple Onion.
Oh my goodness! I love the Purple Onion! They make thew most amazing plated meals and they taste as good as they look. The Purple Onion is prompt and delicious!
