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.

Bradford Catering provided our food and cake for our wedding this past weekend, and the food was flawless. They are a full-service company that was able to provide plates, silverware, food (obviously), cake, and bartenders. They even allowed us to supply our own beer and wine. We were extremely pleased with the service they provided which started from day 1.

Given our extremely unusual work schedules made planning challenging, but Rex and his team were more than willing to accommodate us. We met with him almost nine months prior to our wedding to set the menu. He was able to provide us an estimate at that time. Approximately 2 week prior to the wedding, we were back in touch to finalize details at which time Denise was super easy to work with as we nailed everything down. We had passed appetizers, bar service, and a buffet meal which included prime rib (delicious), cranberry stuffed chicken, grits bar, green beans, and carrots (best carrot recipe I have ever tasted).

The best part of the night was returning to our guesthouse to find a packaged meal and cake for us to eat after the wedding. Bradford Catering's menu is extensive and sure to meet every desire you might have.

Bradford Catered Events was absolutely amazing. The owner's son, Bradford Jones, was incredibly helpful during our entire planning process. He listened to exactly what we wanted and was able to craft the most amazing catering set up. He immediately responded to every email I sent him and was able to answer every single one of my thousands of questions. We did a variety of stations at our reception- carving station, pasta station, potato station, fried green tomato station, salad station, and the best one, a Krispy Kreme donut station. Every bit of the food tasted incredible. I was only able to have a few bites during the actual reception, and it was almost an hour into it when I sat down to get some food, but everything I had was still hot and tasted amazing. We took some boxes of the food to our hotel that night so I was able to taste everything else, and I was blown away at how delicious it was, even several hours after our reception! They also provided our cake and cupcakes, all of which tasted absolutely incredible. I would recommend Bradford Catered Events to ANYONE, and I will definitely use them again for any events I may need catered in the future!

Food was great with excellent flavor. Rex himself was there at the carving station in his chef hat which I thought was very professional (I honestly did not expect to see him there at all and that he would have a supervisor take the lead) but for him to run his very busy business and take the time to be at the event also was impressive..his staff was all uniformed and neat. They kept the food replenished and the serving tables clean. Also, servers very politely collected all used plates and utensils as our guest finished their meals. The food tables were not immediately broken down after people went through the buffet which I liked. It was inviting even after the main rush of people went through. Lots of people commented that the food was very tasty. Rex's staff also cut the wedding and grooms cakes. No cutting corners with Rex; the silverware was silver and the plates were china. Exceptional quality and professionalism. We also had his staff supervise and serve the beer and wine. No complaints were heard regarding anything Rex and his team had control over. They also made sure the bride and groom had going away plates with servings of all of the food and cake.

Rex is one of a kind. He not only has the best food on the market anywhere in this region, but he is the most professional you can find. There were other caterers we looked at but none had the poise and class he did. He met us at the venue and helped us place the buffet and drinks a few days before as well. He came on time and created a beautiful spread, one others won't do without up charging you! He's an all in one gentleman, and he's a brilliant artist when it comes to food. I can't believe how many compliments we received on our food, and while I only tasted the delicious macaroni during the wedding, he and my wedding planner Angie made the wedding couple's to go plate that I scarfed down after the wedding! I also tried the specialty salad I had only requested a few days prior and it was perfect- just the way I had suggested. That's how you know a true chef. He made it everything I could have wanted. He was there the entire time, served our wedding cake that was also outside his vending company, saved our top layer, and helped clean-up. That's full service. I promise you these other caterers may be just ok, but if you want something fresh, delicious, flavorful, homemade, and classy- Rex is your gentleman. I had originally wanted Impressions because of their booth at the Pink Bridal Show, but after he gave me the runaround and booked over my wedding date, I was thoroughly disgusted with those guys. I was worried, so after asking my florist her opinion, My husband and parents went to a tasting. We were so impressed with Rex's food, we booked that day. If we hadn't already booked our cake decorator, I would have asked him to do that as well. It was delicious!!!

Bradford Catered Events was a dream to work with! They worked with me to get exactly what I envisioned for my wedding reception and when I wanted a late night snack option that they didn't offer they went above and beyond to figure out how to make them. I was extremely pleased with their food and our guests loved it too!
