Caterer suggestions - Cocktail Reception Wedding!

Hi Everyone!

My fiance and I are planning our July 2010 wedding which will be hosted on the grounds of my parents home - we're thinking of having a sunset ceremony outside followed by a cocktail reception, dessert buffet and late-night snack station.

I'm just wondering if anyone here has a referral for a wedding caterer that specializes in appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, and food stations?

We really want to forego the formal sit-down dinner for a more relaxed, cocktail party-like atmosphere!

Any advice would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

  1. I can't say it enough, give Ezra Title from Chezvous Dining a call. He is simply THE BEST! His food is amazing, he'll come up with the perfect menu for budget and wow factor, and he's a great guy. What more could you ask for?

    1. I can tell you I have been to great cocktail events put on by the following caterers:

      Daniel et Daniel (wedding)
      Sequel (wedding)
      North 44 Catering

      My advice having hired a caterer recently for my wedding is get quotes from as many reputable people as possible and remember their quote is just a starting point for negotiating. I f you are doing the wedding in someone's home, there will be a big cost if the caterer has to bring in the actual cooking equipment versus using what is on site.

      1. re: JPJ

        Thanks for that! I've got quotes from 10tation and L-Eat, and never heard back from Daniel et Daniel...

        Has anyone had any experience using Amazing Food?

      2. Have you considered all-organic? There's Carole Ferrari from the Local Café. She's a lovely person, and I hear the food is fabulous.

        1. try a La Carte Kitchen Inc. - excellent service and food:
