A bride's dream come true!

Leading up to the wedding, I was constantly emailing back and forth with Andrea and Courtney and a month before the wedding, my event coordinator, Kim, called me to introduce herself. In the month leading up to the wedding, Andrea, Courtney, and Kim were so responsive and calming.

On the day of the wedding, Courtney would make the long walk from the mansion at Harkness Memorial State Park to the beach with a tray of food and beverages for me, my husband, and my bridal parties. She doted on us to the point where I both loved it and was weirded out by it (I'm not used to being served in that manner). She insisted that my husband and I not lift a finger, so she got us food from the buffet and drinks from the bar. Hell, at one point she even offered to help me use the bathroom as my dress was so big! Now, that's dedication! Also, when she came out to bring us food and drinks while we were taking pictures and found us having problem bustling up my dress, she went to feed and water the rest of the bridal party then joined my mom, maid of honor, best woman, and photographer to figure out what the seamstress did.

My cake was absolutely beautiful! It was exactly what I was hoping for. So much so that Andrea requested that we send her pictures. The tired, ombre, blue Italian buttercream frosting looked perfect with the white chocolate shells that I provided and my lighthouse cake topper. Oh, I couldn't have been happier.

As for the food, my guests were complimenting us all night and, according to my mom, all weekend! A week later, I'm still getting compliments on how good the food was and how amazing the service was.

I totally recommend using Cloud Nine Catering especially if you're going to have your reception at Eolia, the mansion at Harkness Memorial Park.

Cloud Nine Catering catered my wedding at the Ellie Mitchell Pavilion at Rocky Neck State Park, and I could not be happier with the entire experience. The food was amazing. Everything was fresh, perfectly prepared, and delicious. I honestly can't pick one aspect of our menu that trumped the others, it was all so delightful. The appetizers were great, the main course (we did a buffet) was amazing, and the desserts (we had an assortment) were splendid. Plus, everyone that worked on our reception was great. Erin's clear communication made planning everything a breeze, and Desiree's oversight ensured that everything went smoothly during the event. Knowing I was in such good hands took a huge amount of stress off of me during that day! I am so glad we chose Cloud Nine and recommend them 100%.

LET ME EXPLAIN.... This is the most BEAUTIFUL wedding venue in the world and I absolutely loved having my wedding there. I am still craving the food and I got married a month ago. So please, if you like rustic, earthy, New England beauty, and the best food on earth... have your wedding there!!! Just be forewarned: the owner is VERY difficult to deal with. I read a review before I decided to go with her that said she would nickel and dime me for everything... yup, sure did! She will go back on things she said, she will not return calls, she will change contracts after they are already signed, she's just an awful business person. With that said, if I had to do it all over again, I still would. The price is really okay compared to other shoreline locals and it's such a unique venue. All in all, worth the headache!

Andrea & the Cloud Nine team helped us pull off our dream wedding. We met Andrea at The Lace Factory about a year before our wedding and we knew she would be fabulous to work with. The only con, in the months leading up to the wedding the team was tough to get ahold of and there were miscommunications with our menu regarding food allergies (keep reading!). But when it came time for the day-of, everything was perfect - we had several gluten-free options on the menu that worked out beautifully. As a bride with Celiac this meant the world to me. The waitstaff was attentive to all of our guests, the food was incredible (our guests are still talking about it months later), and Andrea was wonderful to work with. You can tell she is passionate about her work, and she's an artist- a rare find in the wedding business. We are so grateful for all of their hard work, and so glad we found this team. Highly recommend!

My wedding was on 10/7/12 at Eolia Mansion in Harkness State Park. Cloud Nine was on the short list of approved caterers the park allows. We were thrilled with the quality of their food, service, and our guests RAVED about the food, cake, and friendliness of the staff. I had at least 10 of my guests ask me where I "found" them. The only negative thing I have to say was that sometimes they took a while to get back to me on questions and emails. I did my best to remember that with a fall wedding, they were probably pretty busy during the summer and I needed to be patient. However, the closer we got to the event, we buttoned everything up, mainly because Des, our coordinator, was a saint. She did anything and everything to make sure things went smoothly day of. As soon as we met the first time, she was responsive, obviously cared about our happiness and truly did everything she could to make sure everyone was comfortable. Overall I would highly recommend this caterer to anyone interested in using them. Their food was fantastic, service was friendly, and my guests were happy!

Working with Erin and the whole team at Cloud Nine was such a pleasure. We had our wedding at the Lace Factory in Deep River, CT, and Cloud Nine orchestrated the whole thing. Erin was so warm, friendly, funny, talented, responsible and hard-working. The food was excellent -- creative flavors, fresh ingredients, so many choices and each one more delicious than the last. They made us amazing pies, in tons of different flavors, instead of cake, and easily accommodated our need for lots of gluten-free items. We got so many compliments on the food, and it was a big part of why our wedding was so special. Furthermore, the great people at Cloud Nine held our hands through the whole process of wedding planning, and were invaluable in offering guidance, advice, reassurance and help in making all the big decisions we had to make. The day of the wedding, they worked so hard to take all the random decorations we had pulled together and arrange them so artfully so that the tables looked spectacular -- way beyond my expectations. The Lace Factory looked so beautiful, absolutely stunning, and we couldn't have picked a better venue, or better people to work with.

Cloud Nine did an amazing job for my June 2012 wedding. When we first met with Andrea a year prior we knew we wanted to work with her. She is creative and we quickly came up with an awesome unique menu for our summer tent wedding. From the initial planning stages to the day of the Cloud Nine team was awesome. Erin was so helpful prior to the event and Andrea and he staff delivered above and beyond the day off. The cocktail hour and hor dourves were a huge hit, especially the raw bar! The oysterms, clams and shrimp were so fresh and the presentation out of a wooden boat was fantastic!

We chose stations for our wedding and had a carving station with tenderloin and curry crusted salmon (salmon was my favorite!), a cook to order pasta bar with veggies and meat as well as a cajun station that had jambalaya and cheese grits. The reviews were outstanding and we had so many guests complimenting the food and presenation. No one left our wedding hungry! The wedding cake besides being absolutely gorgeous was delicious! We had two flavors, pistacio and lemon and they were both to die for!

Cloud Nine Catering is a top notch professional caterer who delivered above and beyond in all aspects. We couldnt have picked a better team to work with!

Cloud Nine provided the cake for our wedding. Actually- 2 cakes. That's how amazing their cakes were- we couldn't decide on just 1! We tried A LOT of cakes and theirs just... well- took the cake! We had one carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and one marble cake with vanilla pudding and chocolate ganache. The carrot cake had big chunks of raisin and nuts and the cream cheese frosting was fresh and light. Amazing. The pudding cake with the chocolate ganache was amazing. Guests said that they had never had such delicious wedding cakes. I know I hadn't. Until I tried Cloud Nine's cakes- I really thought that wedding cakes were just for decoration. But this cake was as stunning as it was delicious! We worked with Tiffany who was delightful. Their tasting was amazing. Such a great group to work with!

Cloud Nine Catering is fantastic. Owner Andrea Isaacs is such a warm, wonderful person. She is incredibly creative, and great at brainstorming menu options based on your ideas. Even at our initial wedding planning meeting, Andrea spent so much time and care talking with us about our ideas, and crafted the perfect menu. Their food is delicious and presented in a beautiful fresh style. And of course, I echo all the other reviews on their tasty wedding cake! (try the pistachio) I strongly suggest working with Cloud Nine -- you won't be sorry!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Cloud Nine Catering. Eliza and Courtney were excellent to work with throughout the planning process. I seriously changed my mind about things a million times and they were super patient always. They helped me create a seasonal menu, source a gelato bar from a local gelato company, and really saved the day last minute with setting up some extra decor. Sandy my catering manager for the day is an amazing woman and I really owe my perfect day to her and her staff for setting everything up so beautifully. All the food was delicious too!

Our location had a list of preferred caterers we could choose from. We were so happy that Cloud Nine was on this list, since we had attended a wedding they had catered prior and were impressed! They were very accommodating & flexible with us and, not to mention, friendly! The food was absolutely delicious (highly recommend the salmon) and it was all fresh and served in a timely manner. I can't tell you how many weddings I've been to where the food takes up half the evening. They were extremely efficient and still delivered a very high quality product. You won't be disappointed!

We did a lot of research to find the best vendors for our backyard wedding. We met with many different caterers, but Cloud Nine outshone them all! We could not find another caterer that could match the quality of food to the price. They have been so accommodating to all of my questions, concerns and requests throughout the past year. To top it off, they provided the cake, the bar service and handled all of the many rentals necessary. If you still have your doubts...many people came up to me saying that we had the best wedding cake they had ever tasted!

Great food! Were flexible enough to provide us with plated vegetarian entrees (we had a buffet service) but brought these plates out before tables were called up to get food so our vegetarians felt funny eating by themselves and their food got cold. Plus we heard that the stuffed portabello mushroom wasn't that great. But definitely go for the ginger encrusted salmon, it was a hit!

I can't say enough about Cloud Nine! They were the only catering that I interview that actually fed me. That impressed me right off the bat. During our first meeting, Niki spent over an hour and a half with me discussing all the details for my dream day. They took care of everything from the archway for the ceremony to the food and wedding cake and all the rentals in between. Niki was an absolute delight to work with. My guests are still talking about how good the food was! Everything was just perfect.
