Blue Elephant was the most accommodating vendor we had the pleasure of working with for our wedding. Ashli was our main contact person and also our day-of-coordinator (she does a lot of coordinating before the day-of, though!) and she is absolutely a gem. She's professional, patient, and overall wants you to be happy. I must have sent her the most emails with the most changes and questions throughout the wedding planning process, and Blue Elephant accommodated all of them. I can't even remember how many iterations of the contract we went through (because of us, not Blue Elephant) before we arrived at exactly what we wanted.

We were given the freedom to design our menu and Blue Elephant executed it perfectly. The food was delicious, the service was great, they made the tables look amazing and provided props (included in the contract) to enhance our wedding experience even more. If there were bumps in the road, we didn't know about them, because Blue Elephant are true professionals with a tremendous amount of experience. And it shows!

Thank you, Blue Elephant and especially Ashli for executing our vision perfectly and for guiding us through our wedding day with such patience and calmness. I'll never forget Ashli's reassuring hugs and smiles and how efficiently her team worked to set up the entire reception, even down to arranging loose flowers. Everything was perfect.

Future brides: Blue Elephant is an easy choice.

We had been to events catered by Blue Elephant before hiring them for our wedding, and they are known throughout Greater Portland for providing excellent service and delicious food. We worked with Reuben and were quite pleased with his flexibility and creativity on our menu. He helped us find a bar service and once we had our tasting, was willing to make changes to our menu that made it fresh, in season and local as possible. Despite a rain and wind event the night before our wedding that required a last minute catering tent upgrade, Reuben was very gracious under pressure. His staff provided excellent service and a beautiful presentation.

Blue Elephant is amazing!! We wanted a unique wedding dinner menu and Blue Elephant made it happen. The food was delicious! We had so many compliments about the food, especially the tacos! Not only does Blue Elephant make amazing food, they also help make the wedding day run smoothly. I can honestly say we don’t know what we would do without Fausto and his team. They were amazing! Fausto came hours before our wedding and made sure everything was set up perfectly. He even got rid of a hornets nest so our guests wouldn’t get stung! He really went above and beyond. Fausto made it so we (and our family and friends) didn’t have to do anything or worry about anything - just enjoy. He made our day run smoothly. We cannot say enough great things about Fausto and Blue Elephant. We highly recommend them.

Amazing people and catering Planning a wedding can be expensive and stressful, but from the first moment I talked with Rueben at Blue Elephant I felt much better. Their food was absolutely amazing, their pricing was best I had come by for what’s offered, and working with them made my day that much more less stressful. When you hire Blue Elephant you get more than just an amazing catering company, you get a day of wedding coordinator and planning consultant. They were happy to share their contacts and any ideas of how we could make our wedding better or save money. They go above and beyond, I was feeling nervous week of my wedding because we had so many pieces and Fausto agreed to meet me Thursday before my wedding at my Portland rental home. I felt so much better and it really proved they care about your day and overall experience. My family is still raving about all of the great food and my uncle wont stop talking about the best cheese of his life and the lobster sauce haha. We had a lot of moving pieces day of the wedding and everything went off with out a hitch thanks to Fausto and the Blue Elephant team. Also shout to Lisa who was with us all day reminding us to eat and getting us drinks and completing tasks so we didn’t have to do it. You were a lifesaver and made the day that much more relaxing. I cant thank you guys enough and I will forever recommend you to anyone that is looking for a catering company. Best, The Deshlers <3

Look no further than Blue Elephant Catering if you want outstanding service, amazing food, and so much more than just catering! Reuben and Fausto were incredible to work with, helped us with planning many aspects of the wedding and making helpful vendor recommendations, and we have to mention their incredible warehouse full of props and decor items that they let us use free of charge! It is always refreshing to work with people who have a true passion for what they do, and it clearly comes across in their work. Reuben and Fausto delivered nothing short of perfection and helped make our dream wedding day come true. Fausto personally delivered us our first glass of wine to toast as husband and wife and assigned a wonderful server to make sure we didn't miss out on the delicious appetizers and that I (the bride) was well fed at the wedding! Don't miss out on the chance to work with this fantastic duo. My husband and I, our families, and the guests had nothing but glowing reviews.

I was so happy that we chose to work with Blue Elephant Events & Catering for our wedding. We were planning our wedding from out of state and Reuben made everything seamless and easy. Not only did they provide us with a great space to have our wedding they also made sure that everything was on schedule and set up perfectly for our reception. I had a lot of items that were DIY that were dropped off a few days prior to our wedding and they were flexible to meet with me leading up to the wedding (even in winter weather). Not only were they flexible on meeting with me and keeping communication open over phone calls, texts, and emails they were also great on working with our budget. Because they are not jus a catering company and they are a full service events planning company they were able to work with vendors that they trusted and suggested vendor for us on everything from our bar, lighting, rentals and random specific request I had for decor. One great example of many was I had wanted large oversized balloons around the room of the reception hall, but the helium tanks I had purchased didn't fill all of them. Reuben went out of his way to have the remaining balloons filled somewhere else and perfect for the reception. Small acts of going above and beyond was something I was thankful to have on my wedding day. Not only was Reuben great the entire staff was very friendly and they even helped with guiding our guest from the church next door to the reception and bringing over sparklers for our exit from the church. One of the great things they also did for our New Years Eve wedding was create a special surprise for our guest by setting off confetti cannons at midnight! We had such an amazing time at our wedding and we truly owe it to the fact that we knew Reuben and his team were taking care of everything. Blue Elephant is a vendor that you can trust to be professional and passionate about what they do. I recommend them highly!

Reuben has been great at Blue Elephant Catering, he has answered all our questions made time for drop ins and venue visits and is just all around very personable to your needs. We wanted to do a dessert of apple crisp not a cake, and he with out hesitation said that they could either make it or if we wanted to get it somewhere else they would make sure it was taken care of at the reception. They really work with your budget and help to cut cost, I really feel like they are not just trying to get your money. Our wedding is still a few months away but wanted to review this great place to ensure not forgetting!!

Words cannot truly describe how appreciative we are of everything the team has done for us on our wedding day! Being a foodie snob from Boston, we were very pleased with the food and service. The team went above and beyond by agreeing to be the day coordinator; they assembled all my DIY projects, which was quite a few as I love Pinterest, just as I have envisioned them. They are totally worth every dime!

Blue Elephant was so amazing to work with. They catered my rehearsal dinner and wedding reception at Kingsley Pines. Rueben and Fausto were so amazing to work with. They answered all my questions and made awesome suggestions. We did a New England style BBQ and it was AWESOME! Honestly people were raving. Best ribs and lobster rolls ever. Not only was the food out of control good but they helped with everything. I thought we were just getting food but we got so much more. They helped set up all the table and moved stuff for me. There was a woman helping me all night and watched the card table and moved all the gifts. It was great. Their prices are also so reasonable. Instead of cake we had Blue Elephant do whoopie pies and cookies and they were fabulous. I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you guys!! XOOXOX
