Personalized menu and professional service from start to finish
I can't rave about Watch Hill Catering enough and can't wait to use them again for future events!! Watch Hill Catering and their team really let us personalize our wedding to make it that much more special. We designed our own menu, with all our favorite foods. We are huge cheese and charcuterie fans so that was really important as part of our cocktail hour and wow the spread was amazing and so beautiful!! We still have guests from our wedding talking about the food and quite frequently hear "your wedding had the best food we have ever had at a wedding!!" From passed appetizers (mini ruebens, duck confit with sweet potato, beef carpaccio), cheese and charcuterie, signature cocktails, pasta station (spinach tortellini, squash ravioli), salad station (not your average boring salads either (my favorite one -house made blood orange vinaigrette, arugula, farro, tomatoes and citrus), and to top it off roasted steak tips and lemon and thyme roasted chicken...and that's just to name a few of our favorites from our menu! You can make a menu as small or as grand as you choose and they will help guide you if you just can't decide! That's a great thing when wedding planning can be REALLY overwhelming. WHC will let you be as involved as you want, or can handle the whole thing from the menu to linens, tables and chairs for you while you focus on your seating chart haha The whole staff was more than professional and kept everything clean and tidy throughout the night. I went to our venue, Herreshoff Marine Museum, the day after and everything was cleaned up and they had even packed up my personal items neatly and wrapped them so they didn't break! My wedding day was everything I always dreamed of and more and WHC helped make that dream come true :)Sent on 11/16/2018
