Looking for caterer for LA small wedding
I am looking for recommendations on good but economical caterers for a smallish wedding (75-100 guests.) I have no idea what to expect in terms of cost. If you have first-hand experience in how much the food/service/drinks cost per person in LA, please let me know! I am not looking for lobster or filet, but something more original and low cost. Problem is, we are foodies.... I am also leaning toward family style dinner or "heavy" hors d'oeuvre or a couple of stations.
I am thinking about Auntie Ems. If you have experience with them, let me know!
Elements catered my wedding at the Pacific Asian Museum two years ago when they had just started out. They were wonderful. They listened, offerred suggestions, understood "reasonable cost", and the appetizers and food were delectable. We worked with a Carol, don't know if she's still there, though I'm sure O' Neil, the chef, definitely still is. We were very happy with them.
I've done several events catered by Auntie Em's, and was very happy every time. They do a lot of weddings, and seem to really work with you to get what you want--and within your budget. They do all types of food--all very good.
