    Exactly what we wanted!

    Our 5/7/21 wedding (originally scheduled for 4/25/20) would not have run as smoothly, or been as memorable if we hadn’t of hired William Ference Catering! They stuck with us through our original planning process, through us changing our date several times, and the overall unexpectedness of what the pandemic was bringing everyone’s way, and we cannot be more thankful.

    When we first booked a venue that did not have catering on site, we did a lot of research on different catering companies. Many were unresponsive and impersonal, but we had the opposite experience with William. William, the owner of the company, is the one you would do all of the planning and communication with, which felt very nice to us because we felt confident all of our expectations would be met, and they were met and exceeded!

    William is willing to design any kind of menu with you that you would like. We knew we wanted something a little more creative and unique than typical wedding food. We told William we wanted a spring wedding menu with bbq flair, and that is what we got! One of our appetizers was a mini chicken and waffle slider, and our guests went crazy over it! We also had a mini taco, watermelon bite, and scallop wrapped in bacon in addition to cheese and fruit plates. It was the perfect mix and traditional and modern! For dinner, once again William and his team knocked it out of the park with different kinds of salads, entrees, and sides for our guests to enjoy. The pulled pork shoulder, chicken thighs, and Mac and cheese were the highlights, we saw many people going up for seconds!

    In addition to spectacular food, William and his team will also be able to take care of the bar service for you. They are flexible in terms of how much or how little alcohol you want served. We requested an open bar; all we had to do was tell William what kind of alcohol we wanted and he took care of ordering and returning bottles. We chose to have three signature drinks as well, which William’s team made beautifully!

    If the amazing food and drinks weren’t enough, Williams team also supported us with some of the decorating and overall coordination of the day! This helped ensure even more that things would run smoothly, which they did! William was always readily available by text, call, or email in the months, weeks, days, and hours leading up to the event. He was always extremely kind and supportive with any question or concern we had!

    We cannot emphasize enough how much we would recommend booking William and his team for your event! They are all extremely kind, hardworking, and will execute your event to perfection! We hope to work with William Ference Catering again in the future!

    Amazing food & amazing service

    My husband and I found William on WeddingWire after we decided to downsize our wedding due to covid to a small backyard wedding. The food was amazing and the service was incredible! William was flexible and accommodating from the very beginning. While things were closed down due to covid, William did a special tasting for my husband and I and gave us the full experience. He was personable, friendly and the food was amazing. The weeks leading up to the wedding William made himself available for all of our questions for how to execute a safe, covid friendly backyard wedding. The day of the wedding his staff knew us & our guests by name and always made sure we had drinks in hand. Our guests are still raving about the delicious food & the impeccable service. We couldn’t have asked for better experience with William Ference Catering and we highly recommend!
