Are your ready to plan an amazing wedding?

We can help you enjoy the wedding of your dreams with food that people will be raving about for years! With seasonal specialty dishes and the plethora of unique recipes we have developed over 42 years, Elephants Catering is sure to delight your senses and your guests.

We understand that the details of a wedding stretch beyond the menu. Every detail is of the utmost importance – from coordinating linens with centerpieces to the placement of hand-crafted wedding mementos. This is especially true when devising a menu you and your guests will love.

Our wedding specialists will sit with you and go step by step through all the little details that create a truly unforgettable wedding.

Elephants Catering & Events

“Elephants did an amazing job for our wedding. I had people coming up to us all night saying how amazing the food way. Everything was displayed beautifully and they did a wonderful job setting up all our tables.”

Elephants Catering & Events

“… an absolute joy to work with. I am lactose intolerant and have a difficult time finding food I can consume without getting sick. They worked with us to create a tasty, dairy free menu that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them to anyone with a food allergy. They will tailor your catering menu without any issues to help you eat tasty food on your wedding day. The guests also loved the food and the service.”

“I had Elephant's cater my husband and my wedding this past December and I can't say enough great things about the whole experience. Seriously I couldn't have had a better experience… could go on and on about Elephant's but in the end I will recommend them to all of my engaged friends. I look forward to eating at their restaurants whenever we want to have a sentimental, nostalgic meal of the best day of our lives!”
