Relephant Reviews

"Elephants was AWESOME to work with every step of the way!! The guests raved about the food, and the service was top-notch. We were so happy with our day and everything Elephants did to make it perfect!"

– Cautlyn, WeddingWire

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

– Elena, WeddingWire

“… 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.”

– Michelle, The Knot

“Seriously I couldn't have had a better experience. I 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!”

– Krysta, Yelp

Communicative events planner, wide range of food options for variety of diets and price ranges, food was so excellent, pricing fair, and service fantastic...Went above and beyond too: they took over coordinating rentals for the whole event (based on our preferences/needs) and assisted in fixing a charge error with rental company post-wedding. Would highly recommend them.

– Mady H., Google

"So glad we went with Elephants Catering for our wedding! The online menu was extremely informative (especially when keeping food allergens and restrictions in mind). Our catering manager Michelle was always responsive and helpful with coming up with a menu and rental plan...The food was delicious and our guests were extremely happy. Thank you for helping our wedding be such a success!"
