    We're so thrilled to have found Larry and Elemental Catering on Thumbtack. We hired them for our wedding day and had a very specific budget. Larry and his team were SO flexible and worked with us to refine the menu and service staff to meet our needs and vision. The food is incredible! We so appreciate Elemental Catering's professionalism and customer service - impeccable and wonderful as the food! Thanks for helping make our special day stress-free and delicious for our guests.

    Hiring Elemental Catering was, hands down, the best decision we made throughout our wedding planning process, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We were working on a tight budget for our wedding and had a large enough guest count that required us to hire a caterer. As we didn't know anyone who had used Elemental Catering before, we were on the fence about whether to hire them, so we asked if we could do a tasting with them. This allowed us to meet the incredible duo, Larry and Karen, and taste some of their wonderful dishes--some of which made it onto our menu. Throughout the wedding planning, they were thoughtful in their approach and kept our budget in mind, offering us more affordable, beautiful and tastier options along the way. They added their input where needed but gave us the space to make the decision and supported us every step of the way. Weddings aren't often known for having great food, but every one of the guests we've talked to have commented on how amazing the food was. Without question, we'd hire Elemental Catering again, and unreservedly recommend hiring them!
