    Great Food and Experience

    We hired Wylder to cater our fully vegan wedding on May 29, 2022. Molly was so amazing throughout the planning process! We did a tasting and a separate dessert tasting after our initial dessert plans fell through, and she made both feel like very special and intimate experiences. She was responsive to emails and was very flexible. The food was wonderful. It felt like a menu that was truly designed for us, very plant-forward with fresh ingredients done in delicious and innovative ways.

    On the day of, the catering team arrived on time and did set up for all of the rentals. They were thorough in set up and clean up, communicated everything very clearly, and did an awesome job throughout the event. We got many compliments about the food, and the vegan seven-layer dream bars disappeared VERY quickly! We would recommend Wylder catering to anyone!

    Do not think twice - hire Wylder Space

    I am a professional event planner and hired Molly and her team to cater and bartend my 50-person outdoor forest wedding in September 2021. I highly recommend Wylder Space to anyone looking for an incredible and unique food experience for their next wedding or event. Wylder Space delivered an exceptional and delicious six-course food and wine paired menu. Molly was a joy to work with and the creative process of choosing the menu was so enjoyable and fun. From the plating to the flavors and service, it was beyond our wildest dreams. Molly and her staff were friendly and professional. I didn't have to think twice about setting up, service timing, clean up, and load-out - they are self-sufficient and manage their time well. Our guests loved the food -- we barely had any food waste because everyone ate everything on their plates (which I love!) This is next-level catering and honestly, it's the best food I've ever had at any event I've planned or attended. Thanks for bringing our dream to life.

    Wedding Reception Superhero’s!

    Wilder Spaces catered my daughters wedding reception on the Mendocino coast during the Kincade fire. The appetizers were amazing and I could have eaten them as dinner. The charcuterie platters... pure edible inspired art and commented on by everyone. Dinner was both plentiful and delicious.
    We had an unplanned pre-dinner sunset hike which was graciously accommodated. Between the delicious food, Sonoma fires, PG&E black outs, and surprise overtime Molly and her crew were our Wedding Superhero’s!
    FYI... I could eat the delicious chili shrimp appetizer every day for the rest of my life.. yum!
