Corie and Hunter, Married 10/17/20
After having to change all our plans for our daughter’s wedding due to Covid, a friend recommended Root and Stem as our caterer. We made an instant connection and cannot say enough about how wonderful the entire experience was! We had a feeling the food would be phenomenal based on the sample menu that Craig provided. In fact, it looked so good, we didn’t change a thing! And we were correct! The food was amazing! Delicious and beautifully presented. But, in addition to the fabulous food, we had amazing, first class service. Craig paid attention to our requests, responded quickly to questions and concerns and made important suggestions that made all the difference for us and our guests. The evening of the wedding, Craig and his crew transformed the backyard into a beautiful private bistro that exceeded our expectations. The service during dinner was truly exceptional as was the cleanup afterward. I cannot say enough to thank them for making our daughter’s wedding a magical event!Sent on 10/19/2020

Best Food & Super Flexible
Root & Stem was absolutely a dream to work with from the beginning. Because I (the bride) am celiac, we needed a 100% gluten free wedding, and we needed our caterer to take it incredibly seriously. We worked with Craig, and he got it immediately. At our tasting (in June 2020), Craig confirmed again the seriousness of the gluten free needs, and presented us with some fantastic food. In February, as we were finding out what our options were to have the wedding, Craig quickly pivoted from a full sit down dinner for 86 to a cocktail style reception for 21 with our entrees served as small tapas plates. When we increased our budget (because the savings were significant), he added staff rather than just spending money to spend it. Throughout the entire process, Craig and the whole team were understanding, responsive, and flexible to the changing requirements. The result was that we and our guests felt so well taken care of on the day. The food was absolutely fantastic, and it's only been a few days, but our guests are still talking about it. It was delicious, sustainable, and the staff were wonderful. We will absolutely be recommending them to everyone we know!Sent on 04/09/2021

We worked with Root & Stem for our wedding on 10/10/20. We decided to have a family only ceremony/dinner party at our home (backyard) with catering by Root & Stem. Craig was a dream to work with - it was easy to connect with him, he was very responsive to all our questions and comments, but most importantly, he truly cared about creating a special, food experience for us. He crafted a perfect and unique menu and even assisted with acquiring rentals (plates, glasses, napkins, etc) for the dinner. Craig and his team took care of all set up and clean up, we didn't worry about a thing. The presentation of the meal and the actual taste of the food, were simply fabulous. My father has never taken pictures of food in his life, but he took a picture of every plate of food that was served to us. To say we were impressed is an understatement! We plan to be repeat customers :)Sent on 10/12/2020
I had the privilege of working with Craig and his team at a lovely farm wedding! This was my first opportunity to work with Root and Stem and I must say I will be recommending them to others. First off...Craig creates amazing farm to table dishes which were fresh and delicious. Not only was the food tasty but it was presented beautifully! The wedding couple chose a more family style approach to their service and Craig and his staff executed seamlessly! Not only was Craig a delight but his staff was equally attentive and sweet. They were just people you enjoyed being around and working with. I am grateful for the opportunity to work together and look forward to serving with them again!
