Sandra was professional and easy to work with. She made good suggestions to round out our wedding catering menu. She set up and had all of her delicious food on the buffet tables just like we wanted.

Alison took us on for a wedding at a very late date. Our wedding planning had gotten delayed and we really needed to find someone who could jump in and help us. Alison certainly did! She was fun and calming to work with. She worked with us even though we had a very difficult venue to work at. No electricity and no real prep area. She was still willing to give it a go.She and her staff were on time and worked well and professionally.There were minor issues with the food but I blame that on the venue. It is difficult to keep cold things cold and hot things hot when you have to transport them to a park setting. We chose a coleslaw as one of the dishes and it got quite soggy. It was a warm day so I think that might just be par for the coarse. I would work with Alison again. She has a wonderful selection at her wonderland of food!

Working with Maribel at Fusion International Catering to cater our Wedding was a dream. She was very responsive and adapted to changes, answered all our questions, and offered great suggestions. The real star however was the wonderful food. We had plenty in quantity and variety and many people took plates home. It not only tasted amazing but it was presented beautifully. We had originally worked with another cater and a month out it became clear they were not going to work. They did not get back to us timely and we were afraid they would not be reliable on the big day. Maribel and her team stepped in and saved the day. I highly recommend them!

I never imagined my dream wedding like a lot of girls do. I always figured a wedding would be between the bride and the groom and never thought much about feeding guests or even having a beautiful dress. But, in January of 2016 I set the date to finally walk down the aisle. I had six months to plan the day's events. It seemed more than daunting to plan everything. As a woman pushing 40 with a full time career and a child to raise, having the "perfect wedding" was definitely not a priority to me. Also, with finances being an issue, i certainly was counting my pennies and not expecting anything fancy at all when I added everything up. A few months before the wedding I reached out to Danielle and Austin, knowing they were chefs and had recently been married themselves, to get a few money savings tips and maybe some free advice on how I could feed about 100 people on a tight budget. I was going to attempt a potluck wedding. That first phone call with Danielle changed everything. I let her know my situation and I laid it all out for her. Bottom line, I wanted a no frills- "just feed the people" wedding reception! By the end of that fateful phone call, Danielle offered me peace of mind in my menu choices, awesome tips on what foods go well with others and what doesn't and she even provided me surprising comfort with a particularwedding ceremony detail that I had been worried about. Her advice on a personal level and a professional level relieved me so much. At that point I realized I NEEDED to hire her officially and not just skim her knowledge for free advice! Ha! Shortly after I officially hired her, she provided a beautiful wedding menu just for me that expressed the casual feeling I wanted but added TONS of class! She met with me briefly before the wedding to go over a few more details. Even during that brief meeting I was left at ease knowing she fully understood my plans and trusted her completely. I wasn't worried a bit. A week before the wedding, the unthinkable happened. My outdoor picnic wedding had to be cancelled due to rain. Danielle and Austin were quick to make all appropriate adjustments and eased my mind about the sudden change of plans as well. On my wedding day, I was so happy to walk into the kitchen that morning and see her and Austin's smiling faces. They both seemed SO cool and relaxed. Neither one of them had that "hurried" chef look. They created an amazing spread with such elegant details that really surprised me! Cucumber-melon water, anyone? Healthy and savory quinoa pasta? Sheesh! What a TREAT! When it was time for the champagne toast, Danielle brought my glass to me with such a gracious and refreshed smile that I didn't even notice that she had been hustling as she helped serve the rest of my guests their drinks. Just pure professionalism and talent. Danielle and Austin have a unique talent of helping their client clarify their menu ideas and bring them into fruition. They took a scary and possibly pathetic wedding day and turned it into a memorable and elegant experience. Thank you guys! We will ALWAYS hire you and would be happy to recommend your incredible gifts to all of our friends and family

Rick and his staff catered our wedding at Ainsworth House and Gardens. The food was amazing and his staff provided outstanding service. We originally went to his free tasting and were impressed by his culinary abilities. Appetizers were the shrimp balls and skewers. Entrees included fish and steak. The family style approach was way better than buffet style. He arrived on time on wedding date and also helped us find bartender. Our wedding was perfect and Rick and his staff were part of it. We are very grateful! Thanks Rick!

Greg was the photographer for my wedding. It was a summertime farm wedding. He was there to photograph from setup to takedown. I love the photos! Especially the posed shots of my husband and me, as well as the families. He was very professional and fun and he is very easy to talk to. It was nice having a photographer that was "just another face" at the party (not in your face). I recommend him to everyone.

Receiving food from Tranquil Heart has been amazing! Its chef/owner Diane truly has a passion for cooking and you can taste it with every bite! The meal service is a great way to make eating healthy super easy! While I am a carnivore, I have tried some of her vegan specialties and was impressed with how flavorful they were! Dealing with Diane and Tranquil Heart is a pleasure!

Scott did our engagement photos recently at the St. John's Bridge. We spent about an hour and half walking around getting shots. I was nervous at first, and then relaxed after we shared a few good laughs. He will also be doing our wedding photos. When I met Scott, I felt comfortable with him. He has a very calm demeanor, a good sense of humor and is a good listener. As someone who gets nervous about having my photo taken, these are qualities that are important to me. Scott really has an eye for lighting and backgrounds and did some really cool stuff with headlights on cars in the background of one of our photos... SLR, I believe is what it's called? Scott was on time, early even to our shoot. (We were late actually) I was impressed that Scott was early to the shoot and already had a plan for how the shoot would go.

    Over the years I have worked with many caterers and most of the time they are OK. The workshop has been a great asset to me and the families I serve at Estacada Funeral Chapel. They are willing to work within a budget, give great service and great food. They also are not stressed which is important in my job. They calmly come in and work their magic. Thanks Lou and Janet for all that you do personally and professionally.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you find a good caterer?

    Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

    If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

    How much does wedding catering cost per person?

    Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

    What should you look for in a caterer?

    A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

    • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
    • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
    • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
    • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
    • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
    • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.

    How much should catering cost for a wedding?

    The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

    • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
    • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
    • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
    • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

    How do you serve food at a wedding?

    Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

    • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
    • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
    • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
    • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
    • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
