Behind the bash was awesome. Rachel was so nice to work with. Best food EVER! Which is so important for a wedding. The only complaint I have is the price. It is EXTREMELY expensive. And, she wasn't transparent at all about the 20% service charge, which is such a large part of the entire bill. Overall, the guests loved the food!

My husband and I first heard of Behind the Bash when they catered my brother's wedding in October 2015 at Briscoe Manor. We loved the BBQ they had and decided to have them cater our wedding at Pecan Springs. The food was fantastic! Definitely one of the high points to our wedding. Everything from the appetizers to the BBQ dinner to the service was perfect. We had beer battered asparagus, pork quesadillas, teriyaki chicken lollipops and Cajun grilled shrimp with risotto in mini mason jars as appetizers and each one was absolutely delicious! Rachel was a pleasure to work with and really knows what she is doing. All of her staff were on top of it all night, especially when we had to switch the ceremony and cocktail hour due to the rain. I would highly recommend Behind the Bash to cater your wedding.

I cannot say enough about the amazingness and awesomeness of the food provided by BTB for my wedding. My guests were floored by how great the food was and so was I! Everything tasted to perfection. With buffet food you always worry that the food will get cold and I'm not sure how they did it but it stayed nice and hot. The sauces and spices were perfection. BTB was the exclusive caterer for my venue, The Parador, but honestly even if they are not your exclusive caterer you should find them and use them! I could've used a little bit more flexibility on the alcohol packages offered but it was a small price to pay for the quality of food that we got.

Thank you, Rachel and staff for the fabulous meal at our daughter's wedding on Saturday. I have people emailing me today asking me who did the fantastic catering - I promise, I am recommending you to EVERYONE who asks. The food was beautifully prepared, presented and served and it was mouth-watering and delicious. Thank you for making hospitality to our guests your priority.

Overall the service provided was pretty good and everything went pretty well. The food was high quality. Though we don't understand why their standard layout has white linens but ivory napkins.

That being said, our day of wedding coordinator was extremely rude and will always be embedded into my and my guest's memories (as a bad memory). Being direct is understandable for someone in this position, but she was flat out mean, sarcastic, and insulting. Nearly 20 different guests made formal complaints to us about her. Her attitude was unacceptable for the event. She also made some key mistakes/misjudgments:

-She threw away our wedding cake (a very large cupcake), even though we wanted to keep it, that's wedding 101.
-She was yelling at people and rushing them to leave at the end of the wedding.
-The bride was forced to be in a bathroom for the 30 minutes just before the wedding started. While this was part of the groom not seeing her before the wedding, there should have been a better way. The coordinator was very controlling about this and did not trust the groom at all to "not look".
-She did not tell the wait staff the plan for vegetarian meals. We did not pay extra for vegetarian plates since the food we selected had enough vegetarian options there. However when our guests asked the waiters manning the buffet if they were vegetarian they were told "no". They said the food was cooked with beef broth, when in reality it was cooked with vegetable broth (or at least that's what we were told). Our vegetarian guests we're forced to eat only bread or salad. Some actually left the wedding and got dinner elsewhere. This was an unacceptable miscommunication.
-the bridal sweet was always locked. while we understand this was done to protect our stuff it was handled very oddly. There was a worker in the bridal sweet most of the night, but she would not unlock the door to let people in. We were forced to located the wedding coordinator and have her unlock it.

Behind the Bash previously had an exclusive contract with The Parador (event location) that required you to use them if you were having your event at The Parador. It seemed that around the time of our wedding they possibly had a falling out and no longer wanted to be affiliated with each other. This caused some awkwardness as neither wanted to take on the responsibilities of the other, so there was some back and forth on things, and you could just tell there was some friction. What made me unhappy was the day of wedding planning services. Our wedding planner dropped the ball on some things and did not get along with our other vendors (photographer and DJ). I will say that the food was fantastic and the price for the services was reasonable when compared to other vendors. But we did have to watch out for hidden fees and 'extras' that added up quick.

Everything about Behind the Bash was amazing. The food was SO good. My mom, who is probably the hardest person to please in the entire world, has been raving nonstop about how good the food was.

We had a cocktail hour prior to the reception where they served three appetizers - pork belly, bacon wrapped shrimp, and my personal favorite, the ahi tuna on a plantain chip. Everyone thought the appetizers were so delicious and there was something to please everyone! We also had a seated dinner for about 330 guests - it was essentially an extremely large dinner party. But Rachel and the entire waitstaff at Briscoe Manor did a PHENOMENAL job at getting everything together. They had synchronized service for all of the plates and the presentation of everything was just beautiful.

For dinner we had a salad with strawberries, risotto with shrimp, and steak with mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was all so good. Everyone has been raving about the risotto dish - it was SO GOOD. It's funny because the risotto dish was just something that Rachel let us try because she thought we might enjoy it and it was probably one of the biggest hits that night. Still craving it right now!

I thought the food and service provided by Behind the Bash was excellent and I would definitely go to them again!
