Kate and Capers Catering helped make our wedding a smashing success. Kate was extremely organized and responsive - she helped us keep track of all the details.

Capers Catering catered our entirely vegan wedding this June at the Mass Audubon Habitat Education Center & Wildlife Sanctuary in Belmont, and they did an amazing job with everything! We loved that they were excited about a vegan menu, and that they were honest if they couldn’t... Read More make something vegan and would source it elsewhere. We chose eclectic vegan apps (mini black bean tacos, samosas, summer rolls, bruschetta w/ tapenade, mushroom/veg rice bites) and a vegan buffet (roasted veggie ravioli, roasted potatoes, roasted carrots, mushrooms/green beans, summer salad, and bread). Almost all our guests eat a regular diet (only a few vegetarians/vegans), and everyone RAVED about the food – especially the mini tacos and ravioli! Also, the buffet food was presented beautifully. We worked closely with Kate up until the wedding – she was amazing, always responsive to all my emails and my detailed questions or requests. Dana was our day-of-coordinator, and everything I had talked to Kate about was seamlessly translated to her. The day of the wedding, her and her team made my husband and I feel like a king and a queen (ex. brought us a drink and apps during photos after the ceremony). I had asked about taking home a box of leftovers, and she boxed up ALL the leftover apps and buffet food – enough for multiple meals!

I am not by nature an effusive person, but I have nothing but the very highest regard and praise for Capers Catering for for Kate, in particular. My daughter was married a few days ago (so this impression is fresh!): Kate was with us all along the way-- no question was too small... Read More or ridiculous (or too repetitious) for her. She never showed the slightest impatience or irritation; she was always pleasant, professional, and extremely helpful.

Kate thought of every contingency and helped guide us along to achieve the look and feel and taste of what we told her we wanted. I have zero hesitation is recommending Capers for your wedding. You simply cannot go wrong if you have them on your side.

Exceeded All Expectations! Capers exceeded all or our expectations -- starting with the first tasting and ending with the final dimming of the lights -- they executed flawlessly to create a special and memorable wedding day. Kate and Leslie were the perfect partners... Read More throughout the planning process. They asked all of the right questions, knew when to provide guidance and when to work with us and do some collective creative brainstorming. The team went out of its way to come up with a creative menu that the guests are still raving about. They suggested exactly the right combination of tables/chairs/china/silver to create the rustic/glam theme that the bride and groom envisioned. And they helped develop a layout that gave the guests plenty of room for dancing and socializing. But what really stood out for me was their instinct for knowing how to eliminate the small stresses that occur with any event of this size. On the day of the wedding, Leslie's calm and willingness to step in and help with a couple of "non-catering" related tasks, were above and beyond moments. She and the team exceeded all of our expectations throughout the day -- so much so that we can't wait to plan the next event!!
