Using The Local for our May 2015 wedding was hands down the best decision that we made leading up to our wedding. We used The Local's main upstairs room for our rehearsal dinner, had The Local cater our wedding reception and also used Courtney for our wedding day-of coordinating. Courtney was instrumental in our wedding day. I could never thank her enough for how amazing and helpful she was. She went FAR above and beyond, not only on the day of the wedding, but for a year and a half. Courtney is very responsive, professional, flexible, and she has a very calming, yet in-control demeaner that I truly appreciated. She has done it all and has answers/helpful advice for any questions you may have. Having wedding vendors that you can trust is crucial, and I trusted Courtney with any and all decisions 110%. THANK YOU, Courtney!! The Local is the cutest restaurant to host a rehearsal dinner. Our out of town guests absolutely loved the Virginia charm with the exposed brick, stained glass windows, balcony with hanging flowers, etc. and they could not stop raving about the food. So wonderful! On the day of the wedding, The Local was absolutely amazing at helping to set up my venue. I had planned for a very large dessert bar, and had specific decor requests. After hours of very detailed setup, I saw the reception venue and was FLOORED with what they had done. Everything looked better than I could have ever imagined. The wait staff, bartenders, service, food... everything was absolutely perfect. Our wedding day was perfect, not a single hiccup, and I owe a great deal of my thanks to The Local for this and for all of their help. As if that all wasn't enough, The Local is also incredibly flexibile and offered me many options to make my budget work. I could not be more happy with The Local. Anyone looking for wedding catering MUST use them. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Courtney and The Local!

My husband and I could not be happier with the The Local! We had the rehearsal dinner at the restaurant and catering for our daughters wedding at King Family Vineyard. The food was awesome! They serve hot, generous portions. We got many compliments on the food. Helen was our day of coordinator and did a fantastic job. We gave her a list of our vendors and the day ran like butter! Helen was awesome!!
Most of the final plans came the last two months leading up to the wedding (The venue walk thru, final touches to menu, last minute additions). Helen worked her magic with her knowledge of the industry. My daughter and I are thankful we made the decision to choose The Local. We highly recommend Helen and The Local team!
