Season to Taste made our wedding a huge success, and they made the entire process of putting our wedding together so much easier. This caterer from top to bottom is just top notch. Every single person I interacted with from the owner to the people setting up chairs day-of was friendly, great at their job and seemed genuinely happy to be part of our wedding. It was very telling that both our DJ and photographer had worked with them before and did not just say they were "good" but were visibly excited and happy to learn that Season to Taste was our caterer. If I had an excuse to throw another giant party I would throw it in New England just to use them again. They are very full service - they obviously provide the food, but also work with you and a well-priced rental company to take care of all the rentals, including everything for the ceremony if necesarry. The best aspect of Season to Taste is that you have an event coordinator who basically acts as a day-of coordinator. We had been thinking about hiring one before we realized that our event coordinator would fulfill all those needs, and ours made sure that the day was absolutely perfect.
To start, Robert Harris, the owner, worked with us via video chat (since we live in DC) and made us feel comfortable and excited to work with them before we had even chosen to book them. He worked with our interests and tastes to help us choose a meal that suited the feel of the wedding we wanted as well as feature some of our favorite foods. It was important for us to have a delicious vegetarian option, and they delivered. In addition, little touches like using Purple Peruvian potatoes as our starch since we had recently traveled to Peru, was so fun.
The food was unbelievable. Our tasting with chef Paul was a lot of fun and delicious, but the food at the actual wedding was even better. Our wedding was outside under a tent and the kitchen was set up entirely outside. Everything went off without a hitch, the service was great, water and wine glasses were consistently refilled, the food came out exactly when we were expecting it to and dinner ran right on time leaving plenty of time for dancing. They specialize in seasonal cooking with fresh, local food whenever possible. My wife and I both really care about that and it is one of the main reasons we chose Season To Taste. Even if you don't, the food just tastes better and is completely worth it. We had meat, vegetarian and fish options. We didn't know what fish we were having until just before the wedding because they pick up whatever has been caught by the fishmonger and they pick it up, I imagine, pretty near to the date of the wedding. I still think about how good that fish was, it was easily one of the best dinners I've ever had, period, not at a wedding, but ever. My wife still says she wishes she could have just one more bite because it was so good!
George Nickolopoulos, who has to have the greatest name ever, was our event coordinator and I just cannot say enough wonderful things about him. My favorite, of many, great stories about him involves our cocktails. I was making the ingredients for three signature drinks and one day when we were on the phone going over some details he said he had researched cocktails similar to the ones I was making and determined the right type of glass, and garnish, for each of the drinks. It was such a nice little touch that was so indicative of how Season to Taste handles everything. They set up our tables using lots of stuff that we and our florist had provided and the tent looked better than we ever could have expected. I could not give a more positive review of a company and cannot thank them enough for helping us put on our perfect wedding.
