Buffet, Food + Catering
The food Carriage Caterers provided was absolutely phenomenal! But that's not it, they provided all the linens, tableware, and even several of the centerpiece holders. They set up and cleaned up everything, and their staff was beyond helpful. So many of my wedding guests have asked who catered and I happily recommend Carriage Caterers to everyone!
Bob and his staff are truly amazing! They went above and beyond and everything turned out perfect. The food and cake were delicious, the flowers were STUNNING and the decorations were just what I was hoping for! All of the employees were very friendly and helpful. Bob and Marolynn were a pleasure to work with and they handled everything for us. They also catered our rehearsal dinner and it was just as amazing. Bob even made part of the cake gluten free for me. I would recommend Carriage Caterers 100%!
BOB is the best! I mean the best! He is an all inclusive caterer (one stop shop) a bride's dream! He suggested where I should get my dress, my photographer, and he took care of flowers, linens, cake, food, setup, clean up, waitstaff, and made sure everything went smoothly the day of! I'm sure I left something out. I received so many compliments on how beautiful everything was and how good the food was. He is truly amazing.
Bob with Carriage Caterers is my life saver!! As you can see from all the previous reviews here he is a God Send. I am a very nervous and very anxious person by nature I had to plan my wedding from a far and he was a one stop shop for my entire wedding and rehearsal. I gave him a general idea of what I wanted with brief descriptions and let him know I trusted him with it all! Boy oh boy did he surpass my expectations in every single way! When I saw the finished product of all the hard work of him and his team this past weekend I felt like I was in a dream. I couldn't have even dreamt of anything better if I wanted to. The fact that I didn't have to stress at all about the design, tha cake, the food, the linens or going through any other vendors or contacts and just put all my trust in him made the whole process so enjoyable. There was a Moment that was really stressful for me to where I had lost my dress and I seriously was freaking out. When I called Bob to let him know I was "dressless" he stopped everything and within a matter of minutes he hooked me up with Something BLUE Bridal out of Angelton, where I found an even better dress than I had before. Even when I had anxious moments or moments of doubt in which every bride has, he was there to help me feel secure with the whole process. Very professional and extremely talented. If you are looking to fulfill your "PINTEREST" Dreams!!! Bob, can make it happen! No joke! He got me together with an Amazing and highly organized wedding coordinator named Erika Leppo. Which turns out because my wedding party was so huge I actually really really needed! She was fantastic. Weddings themselves are stressful enough... I strongly urge everyone to stop shopping around for caterers and vendors now and just call Bob at Carriage Caterers. You won't regret it at all and once you hand it over to him just relax because trust me he's got it all under control. Can you imagine having your dream wedding going off without any major problems and being drop dead gorgeous and stress free? Yah Carriage Caterers is the only way!!
You will not be disappointed with Bob. We used his services for food, bar tending, and cakes but he also will do flowers, decorations, rentals..he's a one stop shop! He is SO attentive to detail and has beautiful presentation. The food is delicious! The corn pudding was our favorite. And Bob was so open to all of our ideas and recipes to really make our event personal and special to us. The cakes were also amazing and beautiful. We couldn't decide so we had 4 different flavors! The guests were not disappointed. If you want quality and someone who will make you feel like you are their #1 client, go with Bob and Carriage Caterers.
Can't thank Bob and his team enough!!Reviewed on 4/10/2015 Ashley M
What a fantastic job Carriage Caterers did! We had ideas and they absolutely took them and ran. The reception was perfect, Bob took care of EVERY detail. Including, dinner, decor, cakes, flowers and more! He was even at the church beforehand to fasten boutonnieres. I wish we could get married again just to work with Bob. Thank you for an amazing job!
We loved BobReviewed on 11/02/2013 Jessica S
Bob took care of most aspects of our reception and did so very well.
Bob is the best.Reviewed on 2/19/2013 Alison B
Best food ever. Everything tasted homemade. Everyone loved it. Lots of bang for the buck, we had several selections of meats, mains, veggies, salads, and even a roasted pig! Bob was great. We had some extra people show up, and Bob made it work. My cousin also used Bob for her wedding several years ago. I would use Bob over and over again. Great value. Oh, and he also did our cakes, amazing.
Amazing resultsReviewed on 11/17/2012 Suzannah B
Bob Christensen was phenomenal. He listened to our ideas, was able to help us pin down the details and focus our vision. The food was fantastic, the tables looked amazing and my bridal bouquet was a show stopper. Our first meeting was a bit awkward. I was not that excited about flowers and colors, but thankfully Bob is a professional and he was able to take my muddled ideas and turn them into something that should be in magazines! We had a brunch wedding and the food was out of this world. We had so many sweets, pastries, eggs, french toast casserole, pork loin, four salads that were a HUGE hit and a wonderful wedding cake. So many of our wedding guests told us it was the best food they have had at a wedding! Every server we had at the actual wedding was gracious and the whole reception went off without a hitch. Every email we sent was answered within two business days. He was very accommodating and helped us with the whole planning process. We had a limited budget and his spreadsheets were very helpful. I highly recommend Carriage Caterers!
Great food and decorReviewed on 8/18/2012 Ellen D
We used Carriage Caterers to do our food for the receptions, cakes, linens as well as the decor for the ceremony. This company is great for the bride who has a general idea of what she wants, but is not nit picky about details. Bob did above and beyond what I expected at the church and the food and cakes at the reception were phenomenal! He tends to take what you ask for and put his own little flair on it, which if you are ok with that, then he is great! The one big downfall was that we were told he would keep us on schedule at the reception and let us know when it was time to do what. I fortunately am a very organized person and had a schedule printed out for my maid of honor and bridesmaids. When they realized Bob was not directing the reception according to the schedule they stepped in and saved the day. Unfortunately we had triple checked that he would do this and were assured it would happen, but he fell through in that area. As long as you are prepared for that to possibly happen, we would recommend him in every other area.

My dream wedding was a wedding full of color, great food and drink and dancing all night long. Bob with Carriage Caterers did an amazing job of not only providing the "color" but all of the above. He is a one stop shop! The food was amazing, the service was outstanding and everything was as I wished it would be!
LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT BOB!!!Reviewed on 11/16/2010 Celina T
Bob with Carriage Caterers did such an amazing job with my budget. He did my flowers, our reception food, hired bartenders and servers, did the linens, and both the bride's and groom's cake. Everything was wonderful. I was not a picky bride... but I did want the food to taste good and the cake to be delisious... he did that and everyone loved it!!! Also- he surprised me with beautiful centerpieces on a few of the tables. Bob was such a delight to work with and I would highly recommend him as a one stop shop for all of your reception needs :)
Understood Everything I wantedReviewed on 10/14/2010 Crystal C
In all honesty I had a hard time making up my mind. I contacted this caterer a year in a half before the wedding with basic ideas of what I wanted. Over that year and a half I continued to call him changing my mind on how I wanted the cake to look, the sash/no sash on the chair, even the color scheme. The only thing that didnt change was that I wanted an elegant wedding in my budget. Total for the wedding I had $15,000 (this included my dress, photographer, flowers...etc). Even with all my changes he knew exactly what I wanted on my day. It was perfect to every detail. Tall vases with hanging flowers surrounded by candles for centerpieces. Real china for dinner...it added to a more formal/elegant dinner. The china plates had a silver border; many places give you plane white plates. The food was delicious: Chicken, Prime Rib (carving station), Pork (carving station), salad, vegetable medley, potatoes, squash casserole! My cake was three tiers with bavarian cream. It was one of the most delicious, moist, creamy cakes I have ever had. Everyone raved about it to me :) He was also so helpful in getting me in touch with other vendors in my price range. Being in the business so long he knows many other vendors. I got in contact with my DJ and florist because of him. Carriage Caterers used a florist named "Connie". She is great at what she does! The catering company works directly with her so it was one less hassle for me. I would tell the caterer what I wanted and he found pictures in season and budget that matched. For instance I wanted peonies, but they are spring flowers instead of telling me ok and then giving me the bill for flying them in from Holland he explained the price difference so we could find a more affordable option.
