    Amazing food

    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!

    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. :)
