    Ana and The Caterist team did an exceptional job at the wedding I planned for two friends of mine. The whole process from the tasting to the wedding was seamless and Ana was always so responsive and professional. You can tell she truly cares for each of her clients because she paid so much attention to the little details and went above and beyond to make sure my friends' wedding day was the best day of their lives. With me being the planner and also in the wedding party, Ana was super accommodating of my schedule on the day of the wedding! Months before, she and I went over everything that I would not be able to handle such as deliveries, set ups, etc. and made me feel totally at ease leaving things in her hands. Her team also did such an amazing job - the service was impeccable and the level of professionalism was top notch.

    The food was also absolutely delicious. Before the tasting, my friends had a hard time choosing what exactly they wanted to serve at their wedding because there were so many great options but Ana was great in helping them narrow it down based on their budget and taste. I had so many guests coming up to me complimenting the food and telling me this was the best meal they've had at a wedding. While we ended up outsourcing the majority of the desserts, Ana was so helpful with the logistics aspect of it such as how to serve it and even went so far as to create a custom gelato flavor for the bride and groom to add to their gelato offerings. She also packed breakfasts for the next morning for the bride, groom, and me and it's just those little things that make me so glad that I was able to work with her!

    Amazing food and even better service

    We were thrilled with our wedding catering experience with the Caterist from start to finish! Ana was amazing and always went above and beyond for us. They blew us away with the initial tasting—which was a perfectly styled, decadent feast where we were served every food item we were considering—and kept that standard of service throughout our time with them. After our initial meeting, there was no way we could even consider another caterer. Ana worked hard to find the best setup for our budget and tastes, and she worked closely with our venue coordinator to make sure the evening went off absolutely seamlessly. She was the most responsive and helpful vendor we worked with. And most importantly, the food and custom cocktails were amazing and our guests loved it! Ana and her team were so incredibly thoughtful about every detail from beginning to end—at the end of the night, they even gave us breakfast boxes for the next morning. Our only regret is that we, as the bride and groom trying to talk to all our family and friends, didn't get to enjoy the food as much as our guests did! I would absolutely recommend the Caterist to any other couple planning their wedding, and would not hesitate to use them again.
