    Very good experience

    We enjoyed working with River Valley Catering! They were always very responsive and easy to work with. The food was very good the day of the wedding - we had several people say it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We would recommend them!

    River Valley Catering's reply:

    Rebekah,

    Thank you so much for your kind words! We enjoyed working with you as well and loved seeing how your wedding day came together. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of it!

    Truly Incredible

    The entire process working with RVC was absolutely incredible. Everything from the first emails to the food tasting and planning meetings, down to the day of experience. I cannot count how many guests told us this was the BEST wedding food they have ever had (we did the champagne chicken and tenderloin beef tips)! We used RVC for our butler passed appetizers, plated dinner, all our linens and plate ware, and the late night pizza. Thank you to Karla and Emily for everything! Would absolutely recommend to anyone and everyone. Cannot rave enough!

    Best wishes to you both as newlyweds!

    Delicious food

    River valley has a big variety of options for you to serve at your wedding. We loved that we could do something different and be very comparable in price as the typical chicken entree. We did prime rib and tropical mahi mahi--we are still craving these dishes! All of our guests loved the food as well. You will not have a bad meal with River Valley!

    River Valley Catering's reply:

    Tanner & Whitney,
    Happy almost 1 week of marriage!! Thank you so much for the kind review. It was so great working with the two of you! :)
