    We love the Catering By Design team so much! We've had the opportunity to work on weddings and events with them at all of their exclusive venues and also at a few others around the area. The food is always beautiful & absolutely delicious and the staff are amazing & a pleasure to work with! They are great with communication, help make the planning that leads up to a wedding day easy, and then know how to execute events flawlessly. As a wedding photographer, our team sees dozens of weddings each year. We are always eagerly looking forward to the days we get to work with the Catering By Design team. We couldn't recommend them more highly!
