    Amazing team

    Spotlight was a pleasure to work with from start to finishing during our wedding planning. The food was affordable and extremely delicious. The coordinator was very responsive, which was very important during a COVID wedding. The team was very professional day of the wedding. Would recommend over and over!

    Delicious Food at an Affordable Price!

    Our venue had preferred caterers we had to choose from and we’re glad we chose Spotlight. Not only was the food delicious (people are still raving about how great it was a month later), but it was by a long-shot the best value out there! We were worried we wouldn’t be able to get everything we wanted on our budget, but Spotlight delivered all of it and more! We had 3 passed appetizers for cocktail hour, a buffet dinner with 2 main entrees and sides, a champagne toast, a full open bar for 5 hours and late night snacks for 123 people for less than $9k and that was after the additional fees and tips! The linens, cake cutting and silverware/glassware were complimentary with our package which was a huge bonus! Leslie was amazing and so patient throughout the planning process - You won’t go wrong with Spotlight catering!
