We could not have been more thrilled with Marcia Selden's catering... The wedding was a month ago but our guests are STILL writing in to rave about how delicious and beautiful all the food was! Everything was delicious - and everyone at Marcia Selden was a joy to work with.

I can not say enough good things about the whole Marcia Selden crew, especially Jennifer who helped make our wedding day everything that I could have ever wanted. Everyone had an amazing time, and had nothing but good things to say. Our chef friend even commented on their amazing Parmesan truffle fries, and said that is the true judge of a good chef. From the staff who were truly detail oriented to the gorgeous food, the day was everything I could have wanted.

Jennifer and Jeffrey created a spectacular and flawless day for us. It's hard to believe they were able to pull it off given our busy schedules. The food that Robin made was amazing, and the staff were courteous and professional. I appreciated their patience in dealing with my husbands and my scheduling issues, they were always flexible in scheduling our meetings. We can absolutely recommend them for your wedding or any party.

Marcia Selden Catering outdid themselves for our daughters wedding. We were beyond thrilled and they did a fabulous job with everything from the food to the service. Our guests had a spectacular time and absolutely loved the food. I felt so relaxed the entire time, and my wife and I were able to enjoy ourselves. I would not hesitate to use them again for a party.

Jeffrey and his staff created a wonderful evening for us. EVERYONE loved the food, and their staff went above and beyond-the food presentation was stunning, the staff were so friendly, genuine and accommodating, everyone was on-time and on top of it, and the food was delicious.
I was especially impressed with their attention to detail, even their clean up was thorough. I had heard such wonderful things and read all of the reviews, and they were all true. We will definitely use Marcia Selden in the future.

What an incredible experience we had with Marcia Selden Catering, we couldn't have asked for better service. People were talking about how amazing the food was for weeks after...the most common comment is that people said they loved every single dish, and they couldn't say enough nice things about the staff.
I look forward to working with them again in the future.

EVERY person at my wedding told me what a phenomenal job Marcia Selden Catering did. The food was incredible, and the team was professional in every way. They made the evening perfect, and I can't wait to work with them the next time I have a party.

BRAVO! KUDOS! EVERYthing was fabulous, amazing and superior. The food was superb; the service extraordinary, every detail was executed flawlessly. Of course, that's why I enlisted Marcia Selden Catering to do our children's wedding, I would have never considered turning to anyone else, but everything was beyond our wildest expectations.
We thought their team was superb and everyone was buzzing about what a glorious evening it was. The food was interesting and memorable, most of the guests have said they have never been to a wedding that was as lovely.
We are so grateful to them for executing such an amazing party to honor our daughter's marriage. Their crew is the best in the business, and from beginning to end, we were thrilled with the way everything was handled.
It is hard to think of enough new glowing words to describe how thrilled we were.

What a GLORIOUS + GORGEOUS wedding for our kids! For the 3rd rainiest June in CT history, we were ultra lucky with our FULL MOON and balmy weather, and with our FANTASTIC STAFF of chefs and servers.
The staff at Marcia Selden Catering made the wedding run as smooth as silk, 'seamless' my California friends said about the catering from start to finish. The experiment in having stations, no sit-down, place card directed seating, having it as a walkabout wedding party was sensational. Everyone liked the movement of dabbling at one station for food, sitting and enjoying some friends, then up and away to another type of cuisine and joining another group for socializing. I always love their food, and always appreciate how their staff nourishes and pampers guests, always looking after everyone, remembering special requests and reaching out with elegant hospitality.
A special thank you to Jennifer for leading the way, working with us on the menu, and incorporating any glitches with grace and guidance.
And I look forward to seeing the Selden's when next we celebrate together.

They all made us feel extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the entire evening.

Where do I even begin to describe the pleasure it was to work with Marcia Selden and her wonderful team? First of all, my coordinator I had the pleasure of working with for over a year was Emily. Extremely attentive, honest, flexible, helpful, friendly, and a great person to work with. She was full of knowledge and helpful ideas and always willing to provide an answer when I didnt know what to do. She was wonderful. She kept in contact with my other vendors and made sure everything that needed to get done was done. I would not have been able to plan my wedding without her help. Second, our wedding day coordinator, Jeffrey Selden, was nothing short of amazing. His enthusiasm, helpfulness, calm demeanor, and professionalism was incredible and an absolute pleasure to have with me the day of my wedding. He obviously has coordinated many events and is extremely experienced but treated my husband and I with the utmost sincere kindness and respect, and never let any issues that arose be a problem for us. His attention to detail and willingness make everything perfect for us was impeccable. We were lucky to have him the day of our wedding. Everything was perfect because of the hard work he did with his team. Third, the staff at Marcia Selden catering was the most talented and professional people I have ever encountered. They were friendly, calm, attentive, and always smiling! Every person that was helping that day were professional and incredible at their job. I have received so many compliments from my guests weeks after this event on how it was the best wedding and the best staff they have ever encountered. I couldnt have asked for a better to team to help make our day perfect. And last but not least, the food and venue! We had our wedding at the Darien Meadowlands. The venue was perfect and beautifully set up exactly how we wanted it. The food was unbelievable. It really was so well done, I cant say enough about how much everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you Marcia Selden and Team for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this vendor for ANY event!

The food was absolutely amazing; people were literally blown away by everything they ate. They handled everything so well the night of the wedding. I don't think anyone could have done a better job orchestrating all of the changes! It was the perfect wedding, and the Meadowlands at DCA was also so beautiful.

Our party was a huge success! The food was AMAZING and the staff were so professional!!! I was so happy to have them cater our wedding. From the moment they walked in to the end of the evening, the staff provided excellent service and were always a step ahead! They even saved us leftovers to enjoy the next day with family and friends.

Our wedding was so incredible and we cannot thank the unbelievable team that we worked with at Marcia Selden!! From the moment we walked into their offices, we knew that this was the company for us and they did not disappoint; in fact that over exceeded our expectations and created the wedding of a lifetime. We highly recommend them and cannot wait to plan our first party as a married couple! Their tagline is "Quite Simply the Best" and that is because they are! We loved our experience with them.

I was just married less than two weeks ago at my parents home in CT. My wedding was a beautiful fairytale tented backyard wedding, just what I dreamt of as a child.
I worked with Robin who was my planner, she is Marcia's daughter and we love her. From the moment we met I knew that we were in great hands and that she really would care about us and what we wanted;She truly made us feel like her only client. There was not one detail missed, the food and service was like one of the best 5 star restaurants in New York City and I cannot believe that they produced a perfect meal out of my parents garage! From start to finish our experience was incredible and I cannot recommend them highly enough! I knew that our wedding would be amazing but they blew us away and created what is to date the BEST day of my life!

We used Marcia Selden Catering for our wedding at DCA. The staff is phenomenal - we were always greeted as if we've been clients of theirs forever! Jeffrey was our event planner and we shared tons of laughs while planning! We worked to come up with a menu that suited the season and feel of the wedding. There was not one detail that was not thought through! The presentation was gorgeous and the service was phenomenal!
Kudos for a job well done and thank you for making my day extraordinarily special!

Marcia and team were a pleasure to work with. The food for our wedding fit exactly what we wanted to offer our guests. It was a creative and fun process working with them to plan all details for our big day. They were professional and very accommodating with our needs. The catering staff was so kind and helpful on the wedding day. They also were very helpful in providing referrals for wedding vendors such as bands, flowers, etc.
Would recommend for your event or wedding!

Selden's was great -- fabulous food and attentive staff and very responsive (both before the wedding and during the event itself). I got a ton of compliments on the food and quality of service. Definitely would recommend them!

We just got married a few weeks ago, August 4, and Marcia Selden catered the wedding. Honestly, I don't expect much from wedding food, so I was shocked when people said this was the best food they had ever had at a wedding or at any other event! People could not stop talking about the food - we were getting calls all week with people just listing everything they ate and how much they loved it! I can't thank Marcia Selden Catering enough - they went above and beyond in every way - from taste to presentation. They were the best and we were lucky to have had them cater our wedding. Now I am envious of brides that get to use them...

We used Marcia Selden for our backyard Connecticut wedding in May, and from start to finish they made our day a huge success. The food was outstanding. Our guests are still raving about the amazing appetizers, delicious bite sized passed desserts, and the gorgeous culinary presentation. Not only was the food excellent, but the entire event was managed to perfection. All of the staff- from Jeffrey, Robin, and Jennifer to all of the waitstaff and people behind the scenes- could not have been more professional and wonderful to work with. They listened to what we wanted and did not disappoint. Marcia Selden Catering contributed to the wonderful memories created on our wedding day and we cannot recommend them highly enough!
