We live in a foodie world, and our staff is passionate about working side by side with our couples to integrate food as the main event at their wedding.

Go with Summit!

Summit will not disappoint!!!
I hired Summit for my black tie wedding in Palm Springs. We drove to Orange county for a tasting and we knew they were the company for us right away. The food was delicious and the staff was warm, friendly, and organized!
Pam, our event coordinator, was awesome! She was always available for a quick phone call for questions. She even drove out to Palm Springs to check out the venue before our big day to make sure everything went smoothly.
SO many of our guests talked about how much they loved the food!
Presentation was lovely and price was very reasonable. Everything went perfectly as planned.
I would 1000% recommend Summit.

Best caterer

Summit Event Catering was the best caterer for our event! We worked with Debbie and she was an absolute sweetheart. The food was delicious and all of our guests left very happy and full! From the appetizers to the main dishes, everything was absolutely perfect. We know we can count on them for any future events!

Delicious food your guests will be raving about

Our wedding coordinator from Modern LA Weddings highly recommended this vendor. We met with Veronica who is so fun and has so many wonderful food ideas. Food genuinely excites these people! You get the sense that they truly want to bring out the best food regardless of your style. They can do it all! We had them do a plated dinner with 6 tray-passed hors d'ouevres. They were so easy to work with and let us try so many different items before making our decision. They also were very flexible with the logistics since we had to change our wedding venue due to Covid and hosted the wedding in my parent's backyard. I was nervous about how food would turn out coming out of a mobile kitchen but it was still incredible. To this day I get compliments on how good the food was! It's not something you hear very often from wedding guests.
