Not sure why you would go with any other caterer! Christie is awesome- you can tell she works hard and does an amazing job! I was very concerned about the food at our wedding until we went to our Pine Valley tasting – everything tasted amazing and was presented beautifully- exactly what I wanted for our wedding. Christie took the time to walk through the different options of serving: Buffet, Stations, Family Style, and Plated. While her thoughtful opinion we were able to lock down our menu almost immediately. Everyone at the wedding expressed their love of the appetizers, and meal- her team did an excellent job calling tables and making sure we were served and taken care of. All our compliments to Christie and the Pine Valley Market Team!

Pine Valley Perfectionism!
When we booked our venue, we were given options of several local caterers for our wedding, one being Pine Valley! Christi and the entire PVM team came highly recommended, and the option to do family style was exactly what I was looking for! The first time we met with Christi, my parents and I were absolutely blown away by her professionalism and knack for knowing exactly what guests want when they come to a wedding! Since our wedding was at the end of July, Christi was able to tailor our menu to fit the appetites of summer wedding guests! Additionally, we did our beer and wine through PVM, and were so happy we did. Along the way, Christi was able to give wonderful advice about the setup of our venue, and made sure that we were all set with what we would need for seamless service! Our guests RAVED about the food and service of our wedding! Four months later, and I still hear all the time how much everyone loved the food at our wedding! Christi and the entire PVM team are truly the best in the business, and if you are in the market for a wedding caterer, you won’t find anyone better! PS: If you’re considering doing the Carolina Sundae, I can safely say it can be done in a wedding dress LOL!

Christi and her team at Pine Valley Market were amazing! The food was incredible and my guests couldn't stop raving about it. From the minute we met Christi at the tasting, she made me and my family feel like we were her only client. Her and her team are simply the best!

We hired Pine Valley Market for our wedding and it was fantastic! We had breakfast for dinner stations with an omelet bar, shrimp and grits, and carving station. Plus a biscuit bar for Hors d'oeuvres. Everyone said how great the food was! We ate leftovers the next day and it was still just as tasty! Pine Valley Market did a great job working with us on our vision for our wedding meal. I highly recommend them!

Pine valley market was one of our favorite choices we made for our wedding. The owner, Christi, is awesome at what she does and is super fun to work with. The food was amazing, we still have guests talking about it. Christi does a great job of making the food/drinks memorable for guests but also catering to the couples she works with. Who else can say they had a quiet and romantic dinner on their wedding night? We would give pine valley over 5 stars If we could!

Pine Valley Market is hands down the best catering company in the Wilmington, North Carolina area. Christi brings a comfortable approach with an endless amount of possibilities for your day. That coupled with outstanding recipes and a top-notch staff makes for a winning combination. It was evident from our first encounter with PVM that the standard is high and Christi does whatever it takes to make for a successful event (above and beyond her duties as caterer ie. helping bustle my wedding dress before the reception!). We hired PVM to cater both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception and have been receiving rave reviews from our guests ever since.

Absolutely the best caterer in town!!! Pine Valley Market is such a pleasure to work with and so easy to work with! I have never had anything I didn't like that they have made!! I got more compliments after my wedding about how nice all the servers were and how great the food was!!! USE THEM if you have an event!!!

WE HAD THE BEST FOOD AT OUR WEDDING!!! Christi and her Pine Valley Market team went above and beyond for our wedding. She listened to what we wanted and created an incredible menu. She talked us through the entire process and took care of every single detail. We did stations in order to give our guests more options and everyone is still raving about the food. She also provided beer, wine, and champagne which was perfect because it was one less thing we had to worry about. I can't say enough about PVM. My husband and I were just talking about how we want to have a party so we can order some more of the delicious food they offer. Its not just catering though- go visit them on College Road and try the food for yourself.

All of our guests raved about our food. Pine Valley was so easy to work with and really went above and beyond. We would highly recommend using Pine Valley Market for any party!
Maggie · Married on 10/12/2013
AMAZING! We wanted something unique and southern for our wedding menu and PVM delivered. They worked with us on every detail and every item of food was fantastic. Our wedding guests were raving about the food until the moment we left for our honeymoon and I'm sure we'll be hearing about it for a long time to come! Thank you for making our wedding unforgettable!

Christi and team at Pine Valley recently catered the welcome reception for my wedding. The planning process was easy and fun. Christi took our ideas and created a delicious meal that fit within our budget. There was enough food for everyone to be satisfied and then some. The service staff fit in beautifully at the event and were a pleasure to work with. Thank you again for being part of our special weekend. We would highly recommend Pine Valley Market to cater anyone’s event, as long as you like good food. We will definitely continue to come by for lunch and book you to cater our next event!

We had Pine Valley cater our wedding back in August and they were amazing!! We knew we wanted a wedding with allot of passed apps because we love to eat and I had been to so many weddings where there were never enough. And once we saw Christi's menu to choose from and herd all the things she could make we knew she was it! So she helped us decide on 4 apps that would be perfect passed outside for cocktail and four different passed apps inside for reception along with two food stations. The food of course was delicious/amazing/wonderful and the service outstanding!! Our family and friends were soooo impressed with food and service as well and loved all the variety of the passed apps! We are still hearing about it! And you know how people will tell you "oh you won’t even eat / or remember the food you’ll be soo busy ". Well this gal and guy ate everything!!! Christi was sooo wonderful to make sure that the wedding party got apps and drinks after photos and before intro to reception. She even personally served my husband and I plates of everything that was being served at the reception! Pine Valley knows how to make you and your belly happy!! ;) I’m still craving there awesome cooking!!!

The food for our wedding was fantastic. We had a stationed reception with the amazing Pulled Pork Sundaes, BBQ Brisket and Salmon. Our guests raved about their meals. Christi and her team were so helpful, super welcoming and friendly and very flexible and responsive to our needs. I highly recommend Pine Valley Markets and could not be happier with how everything turned out for our wedding.
Sara · Married on 06/01/2013
Pine Valley Market's food is to die for! Everything single thing I've tried (and I have tried A LOT) has been absolutely incredible. Christi is so friendly and has great ideas for presentation, as well as keeping the options exciting and ecclectic. From our very first meeting, all the way up to our wedding day, Christi has been so accomodating, and she is honest and helpful about ways to save money, which was really appreciated. She really went above and beyond to make sure eveything was perfect. The on-site staff were so friendly! From the duck, to the brisket, to the sushi, to the jambalaya, you really can't go wrong with PVM! Our guests are still raving about the food!

Amazing! They provided the BEST food for our vegetarian wedding. Christi and her team are so nice.
Crystal · Married on 10/16/2011
We had a very specific idea in mind for our wedding menu and Pine Valley did a fantastic job! We had never actually eaten there and didn't go by for any visits or any tastings since we were planning from afar. After describing via email that we were interested in a "camping" themed, all-vegetarian menu that would include sloppy joe sliders, Christi responded that she was up for the task and gave us the perfect menu. She was flexible with adjustments and always very friendly. The staff did a great job on the night of the wedding and the food was so delicious. We had so many compliments from the "meat eaters" about what a treat it was to experience and my husband, who is not fond of mushrooms, raved about the Portobello burgers for weeks. They even made sure to have a separate burger sans tomato for the MIL who is allergic. All around great experience!

The most amazing food I have ever had. Christi and her crew are excellent. I would recommend this place to everyone for their wedding, parties anything. Thank you PVM for making our day amazing.
Richard · Married on 04/27/2018
Recommended to us by our planner, PVM did an amazing job with our wedding. Christi was a huge help from the tasting itself (when she made a critical suggestion around adding another appetizer to our cocktail hour) all the way through our wedding itself. She tracked down the beers we wanted for the ceremony, prepared absolutely delicious food (one guest texted me the next day to both call it the best he'd ever had and ask for the name of a cheese served during cocktails) and ensured everything ran super smoothly. Highly recommended!
Leslie · Married on 06/28/2008
Christi and her team did a fantastic job. The food is awesome and she was very flexible with menu choices and came up with creative ideas that weren't on the "list" of available food items. She also helped us find wine that was affordable and quality. 2 weeks before the wedding she let us taste test wines that her distributors were trying to "move" for whatever reason so we were able to get wine at a really good price.
Liz · Married on 01/01/2005
Christi was extremely helpful in sitting down with me and my budget and crafting a menu that was inventive and creative (and very tasty) that I could afford. She gave me tips on how to get the guest moving around the room and keep the party atmosphere. She found us wines that were great tasting and different and not very expensive.

I never had a chance to set up a taste test prior to the wedding, because they seemed to be very busy with other events. However, when it came down to it, everyone raved about the food. I wasn't too worried because all the locals raved about this caterer. All in all, the team pulled it together behind the scenes because I was getting ready while all the preparations were happening. They also offer a service to take care of the rentals and set up the tables. I would say it was worth it. Some unexpected charges at the end, but otherwise, totally worth the value. However, if I reviewed the contract closer to the wedding, I probably would have been better "in the know".
