I could never express just how amazing Leah was to work with. From our very first meeting she was helpful and accommodating to all our questions and requests. She helped us to create an absolutely perfect and incredibly delicious southern menu. I am so thankful to Leah and her staff for helping to make our wedding day a dream come true.

Leah was AMAZING. Dominique was AMAZING. The staff was so helpful and friendly and the food was exactly what we wanted-- Lowcountry/ Southern cuisine that was completely delicious! The menu was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. Leah was very flexible and accommodating with all of my questions and changes. My husband said he wishes we could get married again to have some more of this food!

Leah and her staff are the best. My mom was assisting me in the planning process, as we live out of town and my husband just started a new job, we went to initial tasting with another caterer and then met with Leah. We were blown away with how amazing the food was. My husband and I wanted a casual Buffett. Downtown Catering was able to create the exact menu we wanted and everyone was talking about the food non-stop, and going back for seconds. It was perfect. Leah's planning services are fabulous too. She was my full-planner and I could not have been more pleased. She took care of all the details, which was crucial, as we were out of town. My day was totally worry-free. I could not recommend her more highly. Thanks, Leah!!

There are not enough words to express how amazing our wedding reception was because of Downtown Catering and Events. My husband, Adrian, and I were married in June and our celebration was held in October. We originally began planning our party on our own…and that did not work out so well! We came to Leah and Ryan McCarthy just 2 months before our event and pleaded that they take over for us! They immediately said yes. They instantly took control and from that point on the only worrying we had was choosing the menu, which was only difficult because of all the delicious choices! Ryan went above and beyond with the menu and the presentations of the food stations were incredible! The catering and bar staffs as well as the kitchen staff are flawless! They are all professional, polite, and cheerful and hands down give 110% in their jobs. Leah has perfected wedding planning and has possibly made what she does an art! The décor she chose was brilliant and the layout was seamless. I would recommend Downtown Catering and Events to anyone looking for the picture-perfect, stress free occasion! Thank you Leah, Ryan and Staff for making our reception perfect!

I used Leah for the "Final Execution" package. I live in Philadelphia, so I planned our whole wedding from 1,000 miles away. I did a lot of research on my own, but whenever I needed a reccomendation for a particular vendor, Leah was always very responsive, and I was very pleased with all of her suggestions. She responded within 24 hours to every email that I sent her over an 8 month period, and even changed her vacation plans to accomodate one of my visits into town, so that we could meet in person to go over wedding details.
I added an extra hour for the rehearsal onto the package, and Leah was extremely helpful at the rehearsal as well. She made it very easy to get everyone where they needed to be (my husband and I each had 11 attendants, so it was a very large group to work with).

As far as the day of, I could not imagine what would have happened if she hadn't been there. I had a last minute transportation issue the morning of my wedding. Leah contacted my "emergency contact" (my sister) and without my even knowing it, they arranged alternate transportation, which included a rolls royce for my "entrance". I didn't even know there was an issue until there was a solution. (and the rolls royce was a hit).

She made sure that all of the guests were where they needed to be at the right times, and took care of communicating with the band, photographer, etc... day of, so that I only needed to talk to one person (and even that was minimal, because she took care of everything). She checked on me and my husband throughout the night to make sure we were eating, got food, drinks, etc... The whole day was perfect, and Leah was integral in making that happen.

I honestly can't say enough about her services, and would highly reccommend her.

Leah and her staff at Downtown Catering were an immense pleasure to work with at our wedding in Hilton Head this past September. To start the planning, Leah spoke with us after business hours to get to know us (we were planning a destination wedding) and was very friendly and full of suggestions. Our wedding was on a Tuesday, at a house, with 19 total people and Leah worked with us to customize a menu to include vegetarian options not found on their menu. She also removed a lot of things from the bill that we provided and kept in frequent contact the whole time. Also, we had requested one bartender, one cook, and just one server, and Downtown was the only company who would agree to our request (others insisted on more than one server). Her staff was very flexible on the day when rain threatened and we moved the tables inside and changed the schedule on the fly. The food was amazing and we were pleased with the service. Let me say it again, the food was amazing. The crab cakes were delicious as a cocktail appetizer. Everyone raved about their dinner dishes. We felt lucky to have Downtown Catering be a part of our wedding day. Thanks Leah!

Downtown Catering and Events is fabulous! We did a tasting with them and did not even bother to look at other caterers. They were flexible and patient with my many menu changes and were happy to offer suggestions to help us stay within our budget. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful and my guests event commented on it. Everyone that I spoke with at my wedding and after has mentioned how wonderful the food was. Even though I had to modify some things for my budget I still feel like I got everything I wanted and more. I also used their wedding planning service, Wedding with Leah, and am so happy I did! I worked with Tiffany Lucca and Leah McCarthy and they truly made my vision come to life. I cannot thank them enough for the hard work they put into making my day perfect. It was amazing to walk in the day of my wedding and see everything I had envisioned come out even better than I thought possible. Tiffany did an amazing job the day of my wedding. Everything ran smoothly and she was there to answer any questions I had. She even came by the hotel the morning of to drop off some snacks I had ordered for my girls while we were getting ready. Thank you Tiffany and Leah for an amazing day! My day was perfect thanks to Tiffany, Leah and the rest of the Downtown Catering team.

Leah McCarthy was the ticket to having my daughter’s low county wedding not only possible but a
beautiful and dream come true for us all. From the very beginning, Leah found the perfect venue for
the large crowd that would be enjoying full bar, delicious creative food stations, and a band for dancing
following a large traditional wedding. She worked closely understanding our love of simple elegance and
low country natural accents. My husband loved working with her as she worked well helping to suggest
ways the budget would be more suitable to carry out the décor. Leah has a wonderful and varied list
of vendors to use, and while we used many of them, she also worked closely and well with ones we
brought in new to her. She was a professional in every way.

Just some of the comments on our reception have been: “should have been showcased in a designer
magazine”, “best food that I have ever eaten, and “the most fun wedding ever!”

Our video shows how she kept the bride and groom on task so all went as planned and yet what fun
they had ….and we have so much to remember and relive due to this.

Anyone would be blessed to have Leah and her team at “Weddings with Leah” and Downtown Catering
Company to plan and cater their wedding. Thank you, Leah; we could not have done this without you.

We used Downtown Catering to cater our wedding day in Savannah, GA. They are so flexible- in that they can travel! They are connected to Weddings with Leah (a wedding planning company) so they really understand the business and how to make things work.
The food itself was amazing. I loved everything but i should say that everyone is still raving about the crabcakes with rasberry habenero sauce over wilted spinach. Such an amazing job!!!

Weddings with Leah-- Tiffany Luca & Leah really worked hard to put together the perfect wedding day. They helped in so many countless ways but i really noticed it on the days leading up to the wedding. On the day of, i didnt have to worry about a thing. They took care of everything. She helped guide us through the evening and made sure we had anything and everything we wanted.

Downtown Catering & Events did both the catering and coordination for our wedding. I can't recommend them highly enough! Leah, Tiffany, and her team did a wonderful job with us from start to finish. From the delicious tasting to the day of, I never had a doubt that we'd made the right choice. The food was excellent, the servers were wonderful (they even took extra photos with the disposable cameras on the tables to make sure they were all used up), the set up was flawless, and Leah & Tiffany were SO easy to work with. Great over email or phone, easy to reach, and very friendly. A wonderful value and a very professional operation.

I took a risk on using Downtown Catering for my Savannah wedding since none of my other vendors had ever worked with them, but I was not disappointed! The food was absolutely fantastic. My fiance and I consider ourselves "foodies" so we were really particular about the menu we were going to serve our guest. They worked with me to include all of the elements I wanted (cocktail hour appetizers, surf & turf for dinner, bar services, etc) while also being considerate of my budget.
They helped to coordinate everything and on the day of the wedding the staff was so professional and helpful. The night was perfect thanks to Downtown Catering!
