THE caterer to book if you want to wow your guests!

I can't say enough great things about Sensational Paella. From the start we knew we wanted our food to be different than the typical plated wedding meal. I work in the food industry, so it was really important to me that we WOW our 150+ guests with something truly special. When I stumbled across Sensational Paella, I knew we had found exactly that--something truly special. Julian, his wife, and the entire crew treated us like family from start to finish. They always seemed genuinely excited to be working with us, and truly committed to providing a great experience for our guests. On the day of, they did such a phenomenal job of getting everything set up and sticking to our timeline, and I've never seen a faster and more efficient event breakdown -- the hall looked pristine not even 20 minutes after all the guests left. Then, of course there was the food. FREAKING AMAZING. Our guests couldn't stop telling us how amazing the paella was; so many people told us it was the best food they ever had at a wedding, which meant the world to us. There was more than enough paella for all our guests to have as much as they wanted AND for us to still take home three big tray fulls of paella. We opted for four different paellas on our buffet: the paella mixta (meat and seafood), seafood paella, meat paella, and veg paella--which was an awesome selection that naturally catered to guests with food restrictions or allergies without compromising on a great meal. The whole team at Sensational Paella went above and beyond for us, making sure we got a sample of the charcuterie platter all to ourselves, and bringing us plates of food right at the beginning of dinner. They even brought in and stacked all the chairs from our outdoor ceremony during dinner, which was really kind and saved us so much time at the end of the night. I couldn't recommend Sensational Paella more. If you want something unique that will really wow your guests, you cannot possibly go wrong with Julian and his team. Great people and great food.

Exceptionally delicious

Julian’s Team at Sensational Paella is Exceptional! The charcuterie and tapas table was too gorgeous to eat. My brother and cousin believed Julian got his hands on my mom’s recipes the cocktail hour was so delicious. My girlfriend ate twice and believed I should have reminded my guest dinner was to follow because she was full. We have pictures of guest having gone up for seconds! The most important piece to a bride is that the tasting turns out to be friends coming over for dinner. Julian does not cater wedding food. The Sensational Paella Team provides a 10 star food experience. His check in calls are never quick. He wants his couples to feel heard and your dream to come true for your Big day. My husband’s favorite was the hot churros with chocolate sauce and whip cream!!!! Yummmmmmmy!! Brides call Julian if you care about good food and great service.

WOW! hire sensational paella ASAP

We hired Julian and his team for our wedding in Maine this past summer. WOW! I cannot recommend sensational paella enough.

We went for a tasting at his house and were blown away by the food. We did the charcuterie board spread for cocktail hour and WOAH it was unbelievable, it was all anyone could talk about! Everything on the board was tasty and the presentation was magazine worthy. We went with a variety of paella (seafood, vegan, meat, mixta) for dinner and everyone loved it! service was flawless, everyone enjoyed a warm,filling meal! All our guests were raving about how unique and delicious it was, I got a lot of "best meal I've had at a wedding!".

Leading up to our wedding Julian was SO helpful, he is very detailed oriented and organized. We were a COVID postponement and he was understanding and flexible to make the logistics of changing the date all work. He is really positive and just a wonderful person to work with.
