    An awesome experience!

    Courtney and The Catering Outfit team were flexible and ready to work with us even though we had less than two months to plan our wedding! They were so easy to work with - my husband and I would highly recommend them! We were able to make our menu our own while choosing from a wide variety of options. Everything turned out beautifully, and we received multiple compliments about the menu.

    Amazing experience

    Courtney and her team at TCO were the nicest, most accommodating team ever! My husband and I are still talking about their warm attitudes and amazing food weeks after our wedding! Our venue had some obstacles to overcome and they handled it all with grace and hard work. EVERYONE at the wedding came up to us about how absolutely amazing the food was, and the whole experience was so seamless and fun. Our tasting was so detailed and they made us feel so special and such a fun, romantic experience. I would recommend to anyone and everyone!
