Passion - Integrity - Experience

There is no standard wedding...

Our Executive Chef, Mark Carter has been in the industry for decades. Finally, after graduating culinary school in 1994 he opened Design Perfect Catering with his wife, Daina. Over the years, Mark has become well known for his sauces and fine art of beautifully displayed food. It doesn’t matter if it is a back yard BBQ or a five course plated dinner, he takes pride in every event. Mark truly enjoys going to the market and hand picking fresh produce, fish and quality products.

We take the time to listen and individualize each event we cater. Our event planning professionals will help you design the perfect menu and ambiance for your event.

We have a full liquor license and highly trained professional staff.

We use cutting edge serving pieces and linens that are specific to your style and taste.


A truly great event doesn’t just happen, it’s planned! Read less

Design Perfect Catering did a fabulous job with our wedding. We had steak and salmon for our main course and they were both cooked perfectly with the salmon just melting in your mouth! For appetizers we had mozzarella and tomato skewers, prawn shooters and deviled eggs and they were really tasty as were the bite sized desserts! Our guests raved about the food and we would strongly recommend them for any catering event.
Tiffani also went over and above for us. Our venue let us know at the last minute that they would not do our clear up and Tiffani calmly stepped in and handled everything. Their team cleared up within 1/2 hour and we were able to get our full deposit back.
We will definitely be using DP Catering again for business and personal catering needs; they helped to make our wedding say special!

Design Perfect catered the wedding rehearsal brunch for my son's wedding. They did a fantastic job. Everyone raved about the crepes at the buffet. There was plenty of food, it was beautifully presented and delicious. They were very easy to work with and although the bride and I met with them once in person, we really wouldn't have had to do that. All of the planning and communication was done via email with the exception of that one meeting and everything turned out exactly as I wanted. They were extremely responsive and accommodating and I would hire them again the next time I have an event I want catered.

I hired Design Perfect for my daughters wedding and couldn't have been happier. They were professional, courteous, organized, and the food was fantastic. Bandi was so helpful with all my questions. We ordered the Mediterranean Buffet which everybody raved about. My daughters friends were still talking about the food a week after the wedding. I would highly recommend Design Perfect. They were the perfect choice!!!

Bandi and the staff at DP Catering were AMAZING to work with. They made the planning process so easy and were super flexible with our last minute changes and tweaks. The night of our event was absolutely seamless and so many of our guests complimented not only on how great the food was, but how professional and friendly the staff were. We will definitely recommend DP catering to our friends and will be using them in the future for any catering needs we may have!

We selected this caterer because they were the cheapest and most accommodating of the "preferred" list our venue required us to choose from. They were able to provide the food that we wanted for the wedding when other caterers said no. The tasting was much better than the food turned out on the actual wedding date. Guests complained after the wedding that the plates provided were too small and they couldn't fit all the food on them.

The week of the wedding it was decided we should add silverware. The caterer contacted me and said silverware had been added to the contract. Considering a wedding is a formal event and it was the week-of the wedding so I had plenty of other things on my mind, I never thought to ask "when you say silverware do you actually mean plastic ware?" Turns out - what we got was plastic ware for the wedding day and I found it tacky and disappointing.

They were easy enough to work with and the food was fine. But there were definitely some disappointments along the way. This caterer is fine. Not great, not bad...just middle of the road. If the food at your wedding is not a big deal to you, they're a good choice. If food is a big part of your wedding and is important to you, keep looking.
