    I could not be more pleased with choosing Laurenda's to cater my wedding reception! From the beginning Laurenda and Chad were always available to meet with me and answer any questions I had! They were very prompt answering my emails and extremely flexible with me changing the menu, adding items, etc. I have never had so many compliments on food as I did that night. It was absolutely delicious! There were plenty of leftovers, and most caterers would have thrown out the leftovers, but Laurenda's allowed my mother to take it home. She was able to use all the leftover food to make lunch box's for all the shut-ins at her church and even they complimented on how wonderful the food was! Laurenda's even set up a hot cocoa bar for me for a great price and let us borrow items for my smore's bar. Not only was the food amazing, but the presentation was gorgeous as well. Laurenda's worked so hard to make the presentation just as beautiful as the wedding! At the end of the night Laurenda's packed a picnic basket full of food and cake for my husband and I to take back to our room! If you are looking for a caterer at a reasonable price with delicious food and wonderful service please look no further. Laurenda's is the caterer for you!

    Our daughter wanted fried chicken and the fixins for her wedding reception in downtown Greenville SC. In spite of a few hurdles with the venue, Laurenda's came through like a dream and was so flexible. Also, fried chicken for >200 guests is not easy to provide offsite, but we had so many compliments on how juicy and tender it was. Everything was delicious plus... they provided beautiful decor for the buffet tables to coordinate with our wedding decor. I would definitely recommend Laurenda's for catering.

    Laurenda has just got it going on! She is an angel. I couldn't have asked for anyone better to cater my wedding. She went above and beyond to have the food I wanted. Her employees were awesome too. The food was absolutely delicious, I believe the guest talked more about how good the food was more than the wedding. Thank you Laurenda for all you did! Also, I must add. My papa passed away just a few weeks ago and I walked into my grandmas house to find tons of food on my grandmas kitchen that she provided for our family! Thanks for all you have done for me and my family! I would suggest her to everybody!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Laurenda's catering. My daughter's wedding was perfect in every way, including the excellent food and service that they supplied. Laurenda, Chad and Peanut were awesome and a joy to work with! Everyone raved about the delicious food and the gorgeous wedding cake that Laurenda created! We also had enough food left over to feed many out of town guests that came to our house to enjoy the delicious food again! The bride and groom loved the basket full of goodies that they took with them on their wedding night. This staff is a special group and I truly loved working with them! I highly recommend Laurenda's for all your catering needs!!

    We hired Laurenda to do our catering! Her & the chef met with us twice & fed us both times anything we wanted! On the wedding day her and her crew were very good at keeping thing moving without being seen! She made a plate for my husband and I to eat so that we wouldn't have to stand in line! She gave us all the left over food! She also packed us a basket to take with us on our honeymoon! The food was AMAZING! We would hire her again for a big event!

    Laurenda's Catering done a fabulous job catering my wedding reception. Before the wedding, they were great at keeping in contact and making sure I had everything I needed. The food was amazing and I could not have asked for a better caterer. I am still getting compliments about how great the food was. The display was beautiful, as well. They were also very professional. I definitely recommend them if anybody is looking for a catering service!

    We were stuck in a bad situation with another caterer and Laurenda took us in and helped us out so much. I'm sure she coul tell how upset we were the day we came in and made us feel at home. She is the sweetest lady you'd ever meet, and the food was perfect. Everyone talked about how delicious it was all night. Laurenda and her head chef, Chad, were both so helpful with any questions and always willing to meet with us and make sure everything was perfect for our day.

    Laurendas catered our daughters wedding and did a superb job. Not only was the food fabulous, it was also presented beautifully:) Our guest have ranted and raved about how great the food was and that it was the best wedding food they had had in a long time. From the time we booked with Laurenda up until the day of the event, she and her staff were always very quick to respond to any of my questions or request. I, 100%, recommend them for any event and will definitely use them again in the future:):):)

    Laurenda and Chad were wonderful to work with. They were always so kind, accommodating and helpful, just really good people. After each meeting with Laurenda and Chad, the bride and groom along with myself felt extremely comfortable and confident in the catering aspect of the wedding. The food was delicious and the presentation was great. In coordinating this wedding, the one thing I didn't have to worry about was the food. Chad and his crew got to the site early, set up quickly and were ready to go. Definitely one of the best experiences I have ever had with a catering service.

    I have been using Laurenda's for over ten years now; for a lot of different types of events.

    The food is always exceptional (and for a reasonable price) and the service is always above and beyond what I expected.

    I can't express how perfect the food and cake were at my wedding! Laurenda and her staff make sure everything goes off without a hitch and they make you feel like family! Miss Terri from Laurendas did my flowers and decorations as well so from food to decor, they made sure my wedding was beautiful and exactly how I've always imagined it would be! I would 100 % recommend them to anyone that is in need of catering or decorating services!

    Chad at Laurenda's Catering worked with us to create a beautiful selection for our reception! The presentation was just stunning (many of our guests commented on it), their demeanor was professional, and they even went above and beyond by customizing some of the menu for us! This catering company was the least stressful, most reliable vendor we used for our wedding.
