Wedding and wedding reception catering in Knoxville is special. Bradford Catered Events has worked with hundreds of Knoxville brides, grooms and families to create the perfect culinary experience complementing their wedding visions.

We understand that wedding catering is often not one of the first things a newly engaged couple looks to contract; it’s often the church, the reception venue and the dress that fall first in the line of wedding plan obligations. The food served at your wedding, though not the focus, will still be an important component, and we are excited to help you plan it.

All truly great weddings and receptions happen when guests can experience the full picture, meaning each piece of the planning comes together in the most comprehensive way, and this is true for weddings large and small.

We are here to do our part to make sure your wedding is an experience that guests won’t soon forget.

Bradford Catered Events believes in expert menus and flawless service, both customized exactly to fit your needs. We believe that the focus of your wedding day should be you, not the vendors. We will do whatever we possibly can to keep that focus where you want it be, even if that means going above our responsibilities as a caterer.

Congratulations on your engagement and the new journey on which you are about to embark.

Let’s start planning the perfect wedding menu for you!

Enjoy delicious menus and the highest level of service on your wedding day.

I used Bradford Catered Events for my Zoo wedding. I saw them at a bridal show, tried their food and spoke with the owner, he made sure to inform me that they will do anything that is within my budget, options galore. We made an appointment, met, discussed options and rolled with everything. On top of loving the food and staff, they use all real plates, glass, and silverware. I also adored the vintage theme that they use. The company did a fabulous job. Bradford was spot on with everything, keeping the groom and I very happy. They staff was dressed and presented professionally, they take care of set up and clean up, the food was still warm when the reception started. I had so many compliments on everything. I would recommend them one hundred times over.

Working with Bradford was a wonderful experience! We didn't know exactly what we wanted, and Bradford was able to make recommendations to select the perfect menu for our brunch reception. We received many compliments on the food and the cake from our guests. Great experience from beginning to end!

I would recommend Bradford catering to any bride or groom looking for great food. They worked with us from the beginning to help create a dinner menu exactly what I was looking for. We were able to try menu items during meetings as well as at an open house. They were very accommodating for meetings and very flexible to any menu changes we made throughout the process. It was the best food I have ever had at a wedding! I would use them again for any special events I may have and recommend anyone else to as well.

The food was absolutely amazing and a huge hit at the wedding! We had the pasta station, salad station, and carving station. I still receive comments from guests that cannot get over how great the food was! Elizabeth with Bradford Catered Events was very attentive; with us every step of the way, answering any questions we had. We will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you BCE for helping make our special day even better!

Rex and his staff were wonderful to work with. The food was excellent (I am still getting compliments on our food)! They took care of everything. All I had to do was decide on a menu! We looked at several caterers in Knoxville and no one offers the same amount of service for the money. Everything is included in the price (no surprises!). At the wedding, the staff was very professional, setup was clean and organized, and Rex made sure me and my husband had a plate of food on our table as soon as they opened up the buffet! That meant a lot to us! We never ran out of drinks or plates, and we had food leftover that Rex allowed us to take home (most caterers won't allow you to take the leftovers). Also, they made us a to-go box complete with utensils! SERIOUSLY BEST CATERER IN KNOXVILLE!

Bradford Catered Events provided excellent service for our May 2014 wedding. Bradford, Rex and the rest of the BCE staff were easy to work with to plan all of the details, and they were extremely responsive to any changes we wanted to make. On the wedding day they arrived with plenty of time to set-up. After a huge downpour changed our outdoor wedding into an indoor one, they jumped into action to bring their set-up inside - all with a smile on their faces! We were so impressed at how smoothly everything went despite the weather. And most importantly, the food was delicious! The pulled pot roast and mac & cheese were the highlights. We also had BCE supply our wedding cake which was adorable and probably the best cake I've ever had! I would recommend Bradford Catered Events to anyone planning any event - they will take excellent care of you!

We used Bradford Catering for our April 25 wedding at Country Manor Acres. I could not have been happier with Diane and her team. From the very beginning Diane was very helpful in choosing different selections as well as making sure we had well rounded meal. I think the food at the wedding was even better than the food that we had at our tasting. We only did heavy apps so I was worried about not having enough food. We only had 2 no shows and we ended up with a lot of food left over. My husband and I had a plate of food ready for us. Diane came by several times to see if we needed anything. Overall, Diane and her team helped to make our day that much better by not having to worry about anything.

Bradford is extremely professional and responsible yet fun and laid back. Rex makes delicious food... everyone talked about how good it was at my wedding. The cake was so good that my husband and I didn't wait for our anniversary to eat the top layer... if that's bad luck, oh well it was worth it! I recommend Bradford Catered Events to everyone!

My experience with Bradford and the team at Bradford Catered Events was perfect! I went to a few events where I could taste test their food and was highly impressed with all of their dishes and professionalism. They were an easy choice for catering! Bradford helped me create my wedding day 'vision', complete with salads in wine glasses and a Fro-Yo bar! My guests raved for days about how amazing the food was! Service and clean up was fantastic. Highly recommended!

Diane and Rex at Abner's were a dream to work with. They would both answer phone calls and emails in a timely manner, dealt with changes in the menu like it was no big deal, and the food was amazing. At the wedding Diane and her staff were catering to mine and my groom's every need and the buffett was refilled every time a dish started to get low. And we never ran out of food! I would use them again for any type of event. They were fabulous.

Him and his staff always responded to calls and emails immediately and helped put me at ease before our big day. The food was amazing!!! We had so many of our guests tell us how much they enjoyed the food. The presentation was great and their staff was great! They even sent us off with tons of food for the wedding night. Definitely recommend!!

Rex made my daughter's wedding perfect. He was the kindest person to work with, patiently answering all our questions and made everything seamless. The food was excellent - caesar salad, green beans, garlic potatoes, copper pennies, teriyaki chicken, and prime rib carving station. The servers were so professional always attentive but never in the way. Rex also provided both cakes and they were not only beautiful but wonderful. All the little touches like setting the flatware with out place settings, busing tables, packing to go boxes for the couple and sending leftovers home with us - I would recomment Rex to everyone.

Rex Bradford is an excellent caterer and provided exceptional service the day of my wedding. Our wedding at Ridge Valley Farms on May 1st,2011 for 100 guests, and everyone commented on how great the food was. We served heavy hor'doirves that were all very delicious. He had an open house for us to try the food before the wedding, was very easy to contact and work with, was there himself the day of the wedding, had his staff dressed up and serve my guests, and packed up all the extra food for our party to take home. Outstanding customer service! Thank you so much Rex!

Rex Bradford Jones did an incredible job for our wedding! We had more than enough food, and it was all delicious and looked good. They also did our wedding cake, which was absolutely beautiful and *exactly* what we had imagined. Must recommend the yellow cake with chocolate ganache and white buttercream icing.

Rex and the staff at Abner's Attic were absolutely wonderful. They catered our wedding and rehearsal dinner and all of the food was absolutely delicious and the guests would not stop raving about it. They worked with us to get the exact feeling we wanted for our event and perfected every detail all the way down to mismatched china plates for eating which was a dream for me.

They were great and the food was great although I didn't get to eat much of it with all the running around and visiting, but the guest raved about it. They did make us honeymoon plates with a little bit if everything and left us what was left when they had to leave at the end of the reception. The staff was friendly, helpful, very professional. The only thing I was disappointed with was the look of the cake, it didn't look like what I asked for at all. It tasted great but I should have contacted them more to ensure I got the look I wanted. I supplied them with a picture but I guess you can only go so far with just a picture. They were wonderful overall. They even agreed to cut the grooms cake for free which I didn't get thru them.

According to all my NYC food snob friends we had the best wedding food they've had and if you've ever seen Platinum Weddings that says something. If you use Rex you must get the sweet potato biscuits with country ham and the cheese grit triangles with the appetizers. It's been a month and my friends are still talking about them. Rex may give you a bit of trouble if you want to be a little less traditional, but just insist on what you want and he'll work with you because the food is worth it.
