    Thank you!

    In our early days of wedding planning, my now husband and I agreed primarily on one aspect - food. One of the most significant aspects of a memorable wedding experience is sharing a meal together with loved ones. Including Sacramento Catering Collective to be a part of that intimacy is a decision that we wholeheartedly stand by.

    As an Asian American bride, the internal struggle of not having a traditional Vietnamese/Chinese 10 course banquet plagued me, but early conversations with point of contact, Elizabeth, ensured me we made the right decision. Our needs were met with such professionalism and patience. As a healthcare provider, cancellation for the safety of all was always on our mind. Our 175+ guest list became 75. My 2am emails, requests, and check-ins were frequent, but Elizabeth made sure my concerns were put at ease with timely responses and willingness to accommodate.

    On the day, Sacramento Catering collective provided us with a lovely 4 course plated dinner service. Scallops, beef filet, lobster, and individualized mini guest cakes - all excellent choices. I inhaled a perfect beef filet in approximately 2 minutes. I heard the hand pulled pasta with lobster was truly a hit. And I can't say enough about the Swiss meringue frosting from their baker, Devon. The attention to detail through refined plating/presentation and stellar service from servers/bartender did not go unnoticed. It was all so thoroughly enjoyable.

    Like all weddings, there were mild mishaps, but mostly due to my own miscommunications & misunderstandings. For future couples, I suggest ample discussion between caterer/planner/couple in regards to: dinnerware rentals, alcohol/garnish/mixer needs for drinks, beverage stations, and logistics of guest meal selection. I think all parties would benefit from a checklist to ensure all is well.

    It's important to emphasize that wedding planning in a pandemic was a privilege and extending patience and kindness to our vendors should be a priority. We are so grateful for all the efforts of Sacramento Catering Collective in the chaos of Covid-19. Having a mask wearing and vaccinated team with similar values was much appreciated.

    There is no doubt that Sacramento Catering Collective will continue to flourish.

    Best decision I made for my wedding!

    I am a wedding planner that got married so I have seen many many catering vendors throughout the years. I found Sacramento catering collective on Instagram when they dmed as they first started out. I followed them back and kept an eye out for about a year. I watched them grow and I was intrigued by their professionalism and unique dishes through my phone screen. As soon as I got engaged, I thought of them and I visited their website, their Instagram and read their dishes. It sounded too good to be true. I thought, there is no way that I can have fine dining yet Farm to fork style at my wedding. There is probably a catch...
    we scheduled a tasting with my fiancé and we were blown away. Chef made a delicious 3 courses for us that left us speechless. Every detail on the dish served a purpose and that is something that I look for when I eat in restaurants. I became a believer in pork that night and I’ll leave it at that. Also I’m a big steak girl and they nailed it. So we decided to book them and a few months go by and my parents thought it sounded too good to be true and for them, food is the most important thing at a wedding. We went ahead and did a second tasting which is unheard of (forever grateful) and once again, blown away. We were so confident in our catering choice at that point. We chose and created a custom menu and even customized dishes. Sacramento catering collective did an amazing job caring for us and wanting us to be happy with our menu. Wedding day came and till this day, people tell me “the food was amazing”. I had people that weren’t even at my wedding come up to me and say “I heard your guy’s food was super good”! That’s how you know it was delicious if your guests are talking about it to their friends haha. Food is an experience, it is something we get to enjoy with people we love, and it is at every celebration because food gathers people together. It is so important to have a good food experience at your wedding celebration because that is what people will leave remembering (especially if it was good). Their staff did an excellent job cleaning the tables off, and everything was done in a good timing. I loved that they served by husband and I first. They truly cared for us every moment. I’ve seen most caterers forget to plate the bride and groom and either the coordinator (myself) would have to serve them. Every wedding I’ve been at I have never seen the bride and groom actually eat because of all emotions and nerves. I was pigging out at my wedding and just waiting for the next course because of how exciting it was for me.
    All in all it was the best decision we made for our wedding. We were over the top thankful and it was NOT too good to be true. It really was true.

    I would like to share another experience I had with them but when I was planning and coordinating a wedding that they were catering. I got to see how they work behind the scenes and it was so so cool. They are professional from beginning to the end. They work so well together and they were so easy to work with. Every obstacle that came during the wedding, they found solutions for. The driveway was way too steep for their trailer to get close to the reception so they had to park outside the venue. What a team, hustling back and forth up the hills, and still managed to do everything in a timely manor. I would hear them talking amongst themselves and it was so heartwarming to hear one of the servers say “wait! We have to make sure we plate the bride and groom first!” And it made me so happy to see them truly care for their clients behind the scenes. The four courses were delicious, the custom drinks they made for their cocktail hour were absolutely a hit on that hot day. Everything from beginning to end was spectacular and they are so helpful with cleanup. As the coordinator, I always get left with cleaning all the tables but this team did not leave until they were finished with clearing them off. It was a huge huge plus for me when Cody came up and asked what else they can help with. At the end of the wedding I heard guests talking about how good the food was. I 1000% recommend Sacramento catering collective to my clients and anyone reading this.
    You guys are the best!

    Appetizing & Delicious

    We highly recommend Sacramento Catering Collective to cater your event! Elizabeth was very responsive and flexible regarding our input and budget. We cannot emphasize how good the food looked and tasted! The staff was very receptive to the guidelines for our wedding, and made every attempt to make sure things ran as smoothly as possible. We received plenty of rave reviews from our guests, and we would definitely hire them again for another event!
