    Delicious and Unique

    Joe, the owner of River City Wood Fire, was responsive, down to earth, kept it simple, and was a straight-shooter. All great qualities when looking for a unique caterer for a wedding. My groom was in charge of researching caterers. When River City Wood Fire was at the top of his list, I was concerned. I am all for a nontraditional option, but I was worried that serving pizza for a wedding would be too casual. My fears were put at ease. Joe and his team provided elegant pizzas with amazing taste profiles that really impressed us and our guests. The appetizers were phenomenal as well. You have to get the sausage stuffed mushrooms! The team took precautions to safely serve the pizzas to our guests during the pandemic. They were very adaptable to the circumstances. And since we had our wedding at a historic location, they were very sensitive to the caveats of our venue. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were not able to taste ahead of time what we decided on serving at our wedding. But that was not a problem, since the food was amazing and a total hit. Unforgettable in the best way. We absolutely recommend Joe and River City Wood Fire for your wedding. You will love it!

    Best. Wedding Food. EVER!

    Joe and the team at RCWF were fantastic from start to finish. From clear communication at the beginning to reserve our date and get a contract, to checking in as the big day got closer, we knew he was responsible and that we were in good hands! Day of, the whole setup was so smooth- the truck was parked out front and pizzas kept appearing inside our venue for our guests to enjoy. My husband and I like making our own homemade pizzas, so we loved that we got to incorporate that aspect of of our relationship into our day. And everyone could not stop raving about how good the pizza was!! Even our vendors were delighted to hear that we were departing from the typical wedding food and having something more unique. Joe even packed up a bunch of to go pizzas for us to take on our honeymoon, which we happily enjoyed the next day. Book them for your wedding- you will not regret it!

    River City Wood Fire's reply:

    It was do much fun! We love working for fellow pizza making enthusiasts! The venue was beautiful and we enjoyed being a part of your special day!
