Since my mother and step-father to be run businesses and work full time, I, the food hound in the family got the responsibility of selecting a caterer for their engagement party. I got so frustrated with this task that I created a menu with a few ideas of what we wanted and emailed it out to about 15 caterers.Sent on 05/19/2015
Since we wanted about 4 different passed hors d' oeuvres and surf and turf for the dinner portion for only 35 people most caterers wouldn't work with me. They wanted to sell me quantity not variety, and they also wouldn't allow us to take left overs we purchased home. They were not upfront about where they purchased their fish and if it was frozen or not (big deal to us) and wouldn't work with us on cuts of meat either.
Patrice called me in the evening, I knew it was a caterer, I didn't feel like speaking with another or getting gouged again but I'm glad I answered.
Unlike every single other caterer I spoke with, she didn't rush me off the phone. She listened to everything I told her, then asked plenty of questions. We stayed on the phone for an hour and a half! She even allowed me to find my own fish, fresh, never frozen cobia from a friend of mine and cooked it perfectly herself. Everything for my mothers event was personalized, her staff was wonderful and the food was to die for! I had so many compliments on Patrice, her services and her wonderful food.
I really can't express enough how personal of an experience Patrice makes catering. I felt like we had a friend in the kitchen cooking for us.
When dinner was through they bagged all the left overs for us and cleaned up everything spotlessly.
If I ever get hitched I will be calling Patrice for my own without a doubt!

Fabulous and flavorful!
Elegant Events was so professional, courteous, and helpful. The food was outstanding, flavorful, and beautifully presented. I used them for both a rehearsal dinner and a welcome party for my son's wedding. I recommend them highly - delightful and delicious!Sent on 03/23/2020

Flexible, delicious food, accommodating
Elegant Events and Custom Catering was wonderful to work with. We didn't have a large group so they were able to accommodate a few dishes we could eat in the morning as well. They were very personable and very flexible with our schedule. Fun, lively energy!Sent on 10/31/2019

This company was Awesome! The food was delicious Patrice helped me create a menu that would be great for my guest And as suitable for my budget. She was even nice enough to prepare a separate dish for my wife(lamb chops) which were delicious! Patrice and her husband was very professional. Hors d’oeuvres were cooked onsite which my guest appreciated receiving hot food. I would Highly recommend Elegant events for your Catering service.Sent on 05/29/2020

Food was fabulous, everything we wanted. My friends and family are still commenting that they have never had food this good at a reception before.

Outstanding from start to finish!!!
We first contacted Elegant Events & Custom Catering 3 weeks before our wedding. Pauline the event co-ordinator is simply the best. She sent me exquisite menus, buffet selections and stations to choose from. I had looked at a few other catering companies before hand and EE&CC's menus blew every other catering company out of the water. A week before our wedding i met with Pauline and Chef Dupino at the location of the wedding to go through logistics and they were amazing and so professional. No job was too big for them. Pauline went above and beyond for me designing menu cards for the tables and they turned out spectacular. On the day of the wedding Chef Dupino and her team were simply magnificent. All of my guests complimented the food and presentation countless times. We were all so impressed. From start to finish the servers and bartender were on top of their game and delivered an exceptional dining experience to my guests all evening. They had a fresh drink in front of them at all times and left with full bellies. We were unbelievably happy how everything turned out on the day and it simply would not have been the same had Chef Dupino, Pauline and their team not been apart of our day. I have never hired a catering company before this and i will never look no further than Elegant Events & Custom Catering again.Sent on 09/27/2019
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did for us. You are all truly amazing and we'll look forward to working with you all again in the near future.

I booked Chef Depino (Elegant Events and Catering) as I was planning my destination wedding to Florida. There is always a certain amount of anxiety when planning an event from a distance, but after researching and reading her reviews, I knew Elegant Events and Catering was the company I wanted to go with. My husband and I are Foodies, and it was extremely important to us for the food to be SUPERB-- and IT TRULY WAS!! Not only was the food incredible, but the staff was professional and courteous. Chef Depino and her team created beautiful displays as well. I can't say enough about how absolutely delicious everything was. My guests are still talking about it. Chef Depino and her team helped make it an unforgettable night!Sent on 06/05/2019

Superb! That’s the best way to describe Patrice’s food and her team. With the groom being a professional chef and most guests coming from out of state, the food HAD to be fresh, creative and delicious. We were not disppointed. The guests raved about everything- from the delicious passed d’oeuvres and bar service to the delectable entrees. I would hire her again in a heartbeat as it was one of the best decisions we made for this event.Sent on 01/27/2019

An exceptional Wedding
We were so impressed with the food, professionalism, and quality that we received. Patrice knew exactly how to make our wedding absolutely perfect. The beef tenderloin was amazing. The passed hor d'oeuvres were a huge hit. I wouldn't have chosen anyone else to make this day so special. The staff was on point the entire time. I didn't have to worry about anything. 100%! 5 stars!Sent on 11/18/2018

Elegant Events & Custom Catering made our Wedding Celebration Spectacular!
Patrice and her staff made our three day Wedding Celebration unforgettable. The staff is organized, professional, and most importantly friendly. Patrice's extensive menu, affordability, and flexibility allowed me to create with her a variety of menus. They delivered, set up, served, and cleaned up. They even packed up all the left overs and put them in the refrigerator for us. All of our guests raved about each meal from breakfast, lunch, brunch, appetizers, and finally the reception dinner. Everything was amazing, especially our wedding dinner
which was served right on the beach! If you want your celebration to be fabulous, then you want Elegant Events & Custom Catering!Sent on 01/22/2019

Patrice at Elegant Events was more than just a caterer - she went totally beyond her responsibilities meeting with us at our venue multiple times, recomending other vendors and being a sounding board for our entire wedding. We greatly appreciated her knowledge and advice.Sent on 01/09/2018
The food was also perfect, she developed a great menu of food multiple times throughout our wedding. Everything was perfect. The servers she uses were great, and she manages them extremely well.

This was awesome. Patrice was willing to do anything we wanted. She came to our venue twice prior to the wedding reception. She also came for a tasting in my home so that we could pick the passed hors d'oeuves that we wanted. For this tasting, she did the final preparation in my kitchen as some of the items were to be served hot/warm. Everyone raved about the food at the reception and about how well things ran. Residents of our community are picky and we had 50% of the seats for the wedding reception available for our friends in the community that we did not fill with family. We had about 100 adults for the reception. Presentation was beautiful and the plate color was gorgeous - a riot of color! We had several food stations - beef and pork tenderloin, Italian chicken, pasta, salad stations, mashed potato in martini glass (they raved about that) and a dessert bar - we didn't want wedding cake.Sent on 09/05/2017
