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!Sent on 07/28/2015

We used The Local for both our wedding and our rehearsal dinner, and were not disappointed! The food was amazing, and we got many compliments from our guests! Since we were using them for both events, they worked with us to ensure we had different choices for each. They were incredibly easy to work with and very organized. A special shout-out is definitely in order for Helen, our day-of-coordinator who was also our point person at The Local. She made sure everything went perfectly at the wedding! My parents and my in-laws could not say enough about how effortless she made everything seem, and about how easy she made everything. I would highly recommend The Local to anyone!Sent on 07/07/2019

LOVE The Local!
My husband and I cannot recommend The Local enough. From our very first e-mail conversation, their team was very responsive and a blast to work with. We chose our wedding planner through The Local as well, and working with Ashley Trone was amazing. She made every process a breeze, and I was so happy to have her with us on our wedding day. We had so many compliments on the food and service. We could not be happier. :)Sent on 06/03/2019
