    Great Food, Great Company

    Wonderful catering company! Our wedding venue only allowed certain caterers, and we are so glad River Valley was one of them! Our initial tasting was very informative - and everything was delicious so it was tough to make decisions. The events staff reviewed table setup, linen options, glassware and dessert service in addition to helping us narrow down food options. We switched from a buffet style dinner to a plated dinner and there were no issues accommodating that request. we even rescheduled our wedding twice and the team did not miss a beat. We had a more detailed planning call about 2 months ahead of our big day, which was super helpful for locking in details. Great food and very responsive team.

    Guests said it was the best wedding food they've ever had

    River Valley Catering served food at Woodhaven for our wedding. The meal itself was phenomenal and the team that we worked with was great and made everything very stress-free. We served a buffet of steak, pasta, broccoli, potatoes and buns. We had tons of people talking about how good the food was the night of the wedding and after the wedding too!
