Everyone at Early Katering was wonderful!!! The food and service was fantastic! The servers including Kay, the day of where fantastic and very professional. Kay was wonderful to work with! We often emailed back and forth. Kay checked in with me reguarly and even gave me her cell phone number. Not only did they do the food (a menu we designed around food allergies and special requests), but the took care of my wedding cake. It was beautiful and delicious! I forgot about asking for a portion to take home, but Kay took care of that for me without me even asking. And i got to take the delicious leftovers of cake home too! They also took care of all my table lines and chair rentals. It was wonderful to know that everything was in her capable hands. She also got me in touch with a fantastic DJ for my wedding too. Also i loved the fact taht she took my flower arrangements after the wedding and donated them. Also she took what leftover food she could and donated that as well.

Early Katering was wonderful to work with. The venue was beautiful, the people were helpful, and the food blew me away. I hear that most brides don't get to eat, I ate so much, it was so good! I suggest that people check this place out, it was perfect.

Early Katering did a superb job at our wedding. They allowed us to attend another event to sample the food and they also served us particular food we requested to try on another occasion as a possibility for our wedding meal. The staff was professional and took care of everything at our reception. Their food is delicious. The quality of the food was important to us since we had attended many weddings where the food was "ok" or not good. We wanted our guests to have a good time and to enjoy good food. Kay Early's food was delicious and some of the best food we have had. They have everything from top quality filet minion to specialty finger foods. I recommend them highly because we were highly satisfied.

Kay was so accommodating to all of our needs. They get extremely busy during the summer, as is to be expected, so may not answer an email within the hour. But, I had complete confidence the job would get done and was not disappointed! On the day of, Kay and Earl showed up early to set up (we arranged our rentals through them as well). I forgot to relay that we needed an extra service (pick up of our chairs from the ceremony location) and Kay was able to arrange it with only a few hours notice. Most important, the food was delicious! They, somehow, manage to have a completely moist chicken, which I find nearly impossible in a banquet situation!

Early Katering delivered a magnificent dinner and helped contribute to a magical evening for our wedding reception. The quality of the food was astounding. The serving staff were very friendly and professional. The cost per person in terms of food was similar to another caterer down the road whose tasting presentation was very disappointing. Early Katering definitely gave us our money's worth! In addition to the menu and setup options, they also helped guide us with decorating and color ideas that proved to be great advice. Because of their great product, they were very busy with other jobs in the months leading up to our wedding date, and communication was sometimes delayed. Overall, we would definitely recommend Early Katering!

Kay Early and her team were wonderful. We were very open to what the food would be at the wedding and didn't really have any specific needs. Thankfully, Kay had great suggestions and options that helped us make the decisions. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception went so smoothly. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious, especially the salad! Kay also made sangria for the cocktail hour, which our guests loved. The only negative I would mention is that we had a hard time getting our e-mails responded to. Partly, I should have been more proactive but I would of liked to have everything answered before the week of the wedding. Despite that, I would highly recommend Early Katering.

Early Katering Company was a pleasure to work with! They were very flexible and very professional. Their staff seemed to melt into the background while getting everything done efficently. The food was great and was set up and taken away at just the right time.

If you want the BEST caterer, this is the vendor. Early Katering handled all the food: Rehearsal dinner and reception. I also used their venues as well: Their banquet room in the farm house for the rehearsal dinner, and the barn was the ceremony site and reception site.

Kay and Earl are absolutely wonderful to deal with. They take each of their events very seriously. When it looked like rain for my outdoor wedding ceremony, they were planning an alternative and were more worried about it than I was. I just told them "do what you need to", and the indoor ceremony was even more beautiful than what I thought the outdoor one would be...and all last minute preparations!

We are still getting comments about the food. It looked and tasted amazing! The caprese salad on a stick was a favorite for everyone, and was inexpensive, but impressive looking.

They are great people to work with, and kept my stress level down a LOT.
