Incredible food and drinks. Overall professional experience

Type A Catering was incredible! Diane was very detail oriented throughout the entire process. Not only did Diane help us put our menu together, she also took care of ordering our rentals. We had a tasting, rental selection meeting, and multiple planning phone calls / emails. We had 3 food stations at our wedding - tenderloin and mashed potatoes, lasagna cupcakes, and street tacos. It was awesome having multiple food options for us and our guests! We had a stunning charcuterie spread and passed appetizers during cocktail hour. We also had 3 signature drinks. Everything was delicious and consistent from our original tasting! We received multiple compliments from our guests about the catering. Type A Catering was very accommodating of our special requests and guest's dietary needs (GF, allergies, vegan). On our wedding day, the staff was incredible too. Diane personally brought our dinner to us to ensure we could enjoy our meal together. Additionally, Type A packaged 2 meals for us to enjoy in the days following our wedding. I couldn't have been happier with Type A Catering, I highly recommend them to anyone!! Thank you Type A Catering!

12/10 hire diane

We used Diane for our fall 2024 wedding and we've been in such a state of marital bliss that we're extremely late in giving this review actually!

From the get-go, Diane hustled hard for us and we knew from the moment we met her, she had our back.... she's direct, friendly, and goes out of her way to make the food special for her clients and ensured we had a smooth, stress-free experience. If anything went wrong the day of our wedding, we had no idea. Diane is SO together in fact, that she handled things that probably some of our other vendors dropped the ball on. She handled a large portion of our rentals which was so helpful.... always giving advice when asked, and gently nudging us back on course if she saw a problem arising (the rentals and the food were all included on one bill, very helpful). Much to my relief as well, she totally got a lot of our more uncommon requests for our wedding, including venue, time of day, flow of day, and style, and made it all flow seamlessly with a ton of moving parts--including orchestrating our bourbon toast (instead of champagne) and our "heirloom" family dessert table along with a small cake, which she set up for us beautifully alongside her catering setup.

Now for the food.....I (the bride) am from KY, and both my husband and I really wanted to showcase some traditional KY foods, while accommodating a large variety of dietary requests, including mine--every version of an app or station we requested, she made a vegetarian version of as well as the regular. The food across the board was so delicious, and contrary to popular belief, you CAN enjoy the food at your wedding when you have Diane, because she personally made us each a plate and brought it to us. She and her staff throughout the event anticipated everything.... we were never without water, a drink, or food. One of my favorite moments of the day was in the few minutes before I walked down the aisle, I was getting sooooo nervous and Diane strolled by, took one look at me and handed me my Bride's Cocktail (a delicious Paper Plane, ty Diane's bartenders for perfecting) and said "here try it for me to be sure it's right", with a little wink. The laugh I got from that made me giggle for the rest of the day. Our guests were so impressed and loved every bit they put on their plates.

She's truly Type A in the best way possible and allayed so many of this very Type A bride's fears of disaster along the way. Highly recommend Diane if you want someone who cares, and who will absolutely show up from day 1 for you and your partner to have a special, enjoyable, and stress free wedding day!

White Glove Service from Start to Finish

Diane was with us every step of the way. We had a very specific wine list and Diane worked hard coordinating with the father of the bride and distributors to get everything we wanted. Diane was in constant communication with us and left no doubt that our wedding day would be perfect.

Diane and her team did a wonderful job on the day of our wedding. The food was incredible and very well plated and the staff was friendly and professional. Our guests loved the passed hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour. Diane’s dishes are creative with the perfect mix of flare and tradition.

We cannot speak highly enough of Diane and her team. It is clear Type A is one of the premiere caterers in central Kentucky. You will not be disappointed with Type A Catering!
