Christen was wonderful to work with - she was very pleasant and professional and had great suggestions. The chef during our tasting was very accommodating of changes we wanted to make to the standard menu. We had a jamon iberico served during our cocktail hour and reception,... Read More which is a bit unusual, and the staff did a great job. Christen did a great job with the finer details. The food was fantastic! We had the Mediterranean station and the urban farm station during our reception. The line at the Mediterranean station was neverending! We got great compliments from our guests during the night about how much they loved the food.

I could go on and on about how amazing Big Delicious Planet (BDP) and Christen and the whole team is, but I'll keep this simple by saying BDP was my FAVORITE WEDDING VENDOR HANDS DOWN. From start to finish Christen was friendly, responsive (always got responses within a day),... Read More and amazingly helpful in determining what foods to select for the tasting, final decisions and fun ideas for the wedding (e.g. cake pops and champagne were served during the ceremony which was a HUGE hit)! Christen also worked within our budget and never tried to upsell us. Christen was so helpful she even offered to let us borrow and write in her professional handwriting on chalkboard signs throughout our venue (welcome sign, menu sign, etc). BDP is used to working with our venue (Salvage One - my second favorite wedding vendor!) so that made delivery and final walkthrough at Salvage One much easier given the caterer was comfortable and knowledgeable working there. And did I mention the food was INCREDIBLE? Guests never comment on food cause it's never that good at weddings, but our wedding was an exception and we had many guests tell us the food was great/the best they've had at a wedding. BOTTOM LINE - Best caterer is Big Delicious Planet; work with Christen and her team and you will NOT be disappointed. They are AMAZING - both in service and quality, and they're very reasonably priced. CHOOSE BDP!

Delicious but expensive

BDP catered our 180 person wedding with mostly organic or farm to table food. They are pretty expensive but had great customer service and the food choices were great.

Wonderful and personal catering plans

Heidi and her team designed an event to match out tastes and personalities. We had a great vegetarian wedding and got to taste everything before the ceremony. They were quite accomodating and flexible.
