The entire Capers team was amazing from the beginning to the very end. They were highly professional, detail-oriented, incredibly friendly and fun. Their menu and dishes were both beautiful and scrumptious. For weeks after the reception, guests continually gave their own rave reviews to us. They were a true pleasure to work with and we'd choose them over again every time.

I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work with Kate and Capers and cannot imagine our wedding without them!

My husband and I were unable to conduct a tasting before committing to a caterer, which put a lot more pressure on our first point of contact and initial proposal. Kate immediately impressed us with her responsiveness, attention to detail and creativity – our very first proposal from Kate was exactly what we were looking for!

Throughout the planning process, Kate was professional, knowledgeable, organized, hard working, enthusiastic and supportive. She helped up decide on and secure our rentals, led us through a wonderful tasting experience, put together an optimal floor plan for our 3-floor venue, create a wedding timeline and much more! Kate fully immersed herself in understanding our vision and I valued her every recommendation.

At our tasting, we had the most positive experience with Kate and chef John. We were blown away by the quality of food from the appetizers to entrees to late night snacks and appreciated their efforts to make the tasting special and enjoyable. Kate always strikes the perfect balance between professionalism and making the process personal!

Kate played a most integral role in the planning, execution and overall success of our wedding. On our wedding day, Capers above and beyond delivered what we had imagined and so much more! Kate, Diane and the entire Capers team were attentive, gracious and hard working. They made our wedding flow perfectly and pulled everything together from decorations to keeping us on schedule. During cocktails, servers delivered beverages and appetizers to our wedding party as we took some final pictures together. Diane regularly checked in during dinner to make sure my husband and I had everything we needed and some of the servers even rushed to get me a piece of cake since I didn’t have time to sit during the dessert! Thank you Kate and Capers for the most wonderful experience!

Absolutely fabulous job! We used Kate, and she was AMAZING. Capers provided excellent food for our wedding and excellent service during the cocktail hour and dinner reception. Moreover, Kate helped plan our event, down to the tiniest details. I was a very detail-oriented bride, and Kate made sure that everything I wanted was perfectly executed on the day of the wedding. Exceeded my expectations - Capers was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Capers was wonderful to work with and the food was delicious! Kate was our contact person, and she was super responsive, accommodating, and helpful. She was the closest person we had to a wedding planner. She helped us choose the food and table settings, work through the timeline and details of the day, and coordinate with our other vendors. She met with my parents and I at the rental store to choose tablecloths and settings, and then took a photo and emailed it to my florist on the spot. She talked through the timeline hour-by-hour so my fiancee and I could understand the flow of the day and make decisions about how we wanted everything to go. After doing the final site visit, she created and emailed us maps of the facility and the reception with all the details we discussed (dinner tables, cocktail tables, cake table, DJ table, bars, etc.). My mother-in-law wanted to do something special with the desserts in addition to the cake, and Capers helped us achieve her vision. Kate always responded to emails quickly and professionally. She also dealt with last minute changes with ease and flexibility. Guests emailed us the week of the wedding with food requests ranging from gluten free, to no nuts/seeds, to vegan. We also had a few guests drop/add at the last minute, including a couple who decided to bring their 6-year-old and not tell us until we met him at the wedding. Throughout all of this, Capers was pleasant and adjusted easily to the changes. My one moment of disappointment was when I realized (late in the process) that I had misunderstood and thought that Kate would be there to coordinate everything on the actual day; she actually coordinates everything with an Event Manager who is the person there on the actual day. I was nervous to hear that, but Kate had been so wonderful and organized throughout the process that I trusted everything would be fine, and it was. She still made time to stop by to say hello at the wedding, and the Event Manager was terrific.

Caper’s was AMAZING! I contacted a few caterers and Caper’s was the first to respond and also provided the best price and menu. Our contact at Caper’s was Kristin and she was so wonderful about getting back to my emails quickly and helping me with anything extra for the wedding (for example, they took care of making “reserved” signs for the ceremony). The food was phenomenal and beautifully presented! Caper’s not only provided the food, they really made the event happen. Diane was our coordinator for the day and she was perfect! She made sure everything was set-up (including all of my DIY projects) and checked in regularly to see if there was anything my husband or I needed. In fact, one of the staff members tracked my husband and I down with a plate of appetizers during the cocktail hour (we were having some trouble bustling my dress and it was taking a lot longer than we expected), which we really appreciated because otherwise we would have missed them completely! All of the staff was very professional, friendly, and just wonderful! We can’t say enough good things about Caper’s and if we ever need a caterer again, we will be calling them!

Food is one of the things my husband and I love most, and it was one of the highest priorities for us in planning our wedding – we wanted to have a great meal that reflected our love of cooking and eating. I just can’t say enough amazing things about our experience with Capers – both during the planning process (which was almost two years in our case), and on our wedding day. During the planning process, we worked with Kristin – she was so incredibly helpful as we played around with different meal ideas, very responsive to our concerns about budget, and put us completely at ease that Capers would have everything well in hand on the day-of. When we went in for our tasting, we thought “if the food is even half as good on the day of the wedding, we’re golden.”

In fact, even cooking for 100 people in an outdoor oven in the parking lot, Capers managed to make incredible food on our wedding day that exceeded our memories of the tasting. We got so many compliments on the food from our guests -- we were walking around to greet people at their tables, and most plates appeared to be licked clean. Our meals were incredible, and I only wish we'd gotten to eat more :) Capers also coordinated the alcohol delivery and pickup on our behalf with a local vendor, and provided bartending that was superb.

We also felt so relaxed and taken care of, we were able to just enjoy the whole event knowing that the team had everything well in hand. Capers did a wonderful job with setting up both the ceremony and reception, including helping set up a lot of the DIY decorations that I’d put together. I have a background in event planning and am a bit of a control freak, and I worried that I wouldn’t be able to stand back and relax – but there just wasn’t anything I would have been able to meddle with because Capers was so on top of everything.

Picking Capers as our wedding caterer was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding and I’m going to miss working with them!

We used Capers for our recent wedding on 5/17/14 and they were absolutely wonderful to work with. We planned our wedding at a venue that did not have a wedding coordinator, and we didn’t hire a wedding coordinator until the very end (Day of Coordinator). When I first started researching caterers for our wedding I was a bit overwhelmed. So many to caterers to choose from, and so many that seemed way above our budget. In addition, many that took days and days to respond to my inquiry and other emails. But when I heard from Kristin very quickly after contacting Capers, I immediately knew I wanted to work with them. First, she was so prompt with replies to my questions and she was always so detailed and accurate with her answers. She was pleasant and enthusiastic and very willing to work within our budget. I soon realized that the catering coordinator is such a huge part of the wedding planning process, which can be very stressful, and I don’t know what I would have done without Kristin! She was always such a calming presence, with such good advice on everything from food choices, to glassware choices, to set-up decisions. It was SOOO helpful that she had done many events at my venue in the past and knew all the insides and outs of how things worked there.
And on the day of the wedding, Capers was unbelievable. The venue looked beautiful – everything was set up perfectly. The food was delicious – my guests raved about the mini lobster rolls at cocktail hour and the entrees were served nice and hot! People especially loved the halibut. The service was stellar – we couldn’t believe how many staff were there – they had an army! And they treated the groom and I like we were the king and queen.
I can’t say enough how highly I would recommend Capers Catering, from pre-wedding contracting with Kristin to the delicious food and impeccable service the day of, they were fantastic. One of the best decisions we made throughout the whole planning process!

Capers won us over during the initial tasting. Before we had even signed a contract, Kate worked with us to design our menu based on a wide selection of offerings (and our budget), and this was what we ate for our tasting. The food was delicious and Kate won us over with her attention to detail, great suggestions, and her clear confidence in event planning. As the year went on, Kate was available to answer our questions, no matter how small. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she made sure that everything was set and asked our opinion on all the important details. All this made us very confident that the wedding day would go smoothly.
And it went more smoothly than I could have imagined. Capers set up for our wedding in less than two hours and Kate remembered everything we asked of her team. The food was excellent, the servers were on point, and the decorations were perfect. Our guests raved about every course. The only input needed from me was whether to delay the start of dinner due to our formals running late. It was great because I was just able to relax and enjoy the day. Kate even tracked me and my bridesmaids down as we tried to discretely bustle my dress to make sure we got to try the hors d'oeuvres! And the kitchen staff sent us home with some bonus mini-lobster rolls we scarfed down during the afterparty. I recommend Capers if you are looking for an experienced catering company with a personal touch and a desire to make your wedding one of a kind.
