These guys are the best of the best! Thanks to Fresh, my wedding went beyond my expectations! My venue was at a non profit farm/venue so I was referred to Fresh from the director of events there, and wow we really lucked out. I really appreciated that they were a smaller company because it made the experience more personable which made us feel that they really made it special for us. We met with Shelley (chef and owner) and Chelsea, the event planner. Our first meeting was getting to know more about them and to taste a bit of their food. They use local/seasonal ingredients for their menu which we were thrilled to hear, they even had our chicken liver crostini sourced from the venue's farm! Everyone RAVED about how amazing the food was, made us so proud :)
We had about 100 guests and did the buffet which worked out perfectly because everyone was able to try the entire menu.. oh and also want to mention people did comment that they were so efficient that no one had to wait in "a long buffet line" for food, which to me really is important. I loved that they never skimped on quality to meet our budget, they suggested other alternatives that worked for us and I can't mention enough how delicious the food was!
When you first meet the team, you know immediately how talented and intelligent these people are, they had a solution/answer to every one of our questions, so awesome. If you have the opportunity, work with Chelsea, she is a godsend! She has a wealth of knowledge and is SO easy to work with and very organized. We probably went back and forth 100 emails and she always was on top of everything. She made the experience so fluid. Also the staff was fantastic and so personable! Honestly i have nothing but positive things to say about these people. Thank you again Fresh Company!

Our wedding day turned out to be a dream...and it was due in large part to Fresh Company. Deb was so helpful and responsive to my ideas and flexible in tailoring to our tastes and including ethnic dishes and swapping ingredients. There is a lot of planning for an outdoor wedding especially when you live out of state. Deb coordinated all the rentals for me. It was so great to feel at ease on my wedding day. All the staff were helpful, attentive, and friendly and the food was fabulous. I can't say enough. We had so many people telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

When I was planning my wedding, I looked on weddingwire for reviews, and Fresh Company didn't have any or only had one or something. Anyway, I wanted to rectify that and add my voice to the other reviews here.

Our wedding was absolutely beyond perfect--it was such a happy day and we feel that it was the best wedding ever (and many of our guests said so too). All of our vendors made the day perfect, but the majority of the credit has to go to our caterers Fresh Company, who basically helped us plan the entire thing from start to finish. We had a little bit of an unusual venue, for which they are the exclusive caterer, and we really need their help for the whole thing. They were our liaison for everything--the rental company and the venue, and they also worked with our DJ etc to make sure everything ran smoothly.

Our menu was fresh and local and the food was so good. My husband keeps saying that he wishes we could have our wedding again just to eat the food! Definitely not cliched wedding fare (and no chafing dishes, my personal pet peeve)--just good, delicious food. Sometimes I read reviews and I question the reviewers' taste, but my husband is a somewhat well-known food writer and I have a very demanding family and they were all thrilled with it. All of the staff of Fresh Company (and their hired staff on the day of the wedding) were incredibly professional and kind and we are just so thankful for everything that they did.

We truly felt like they made our wedding day special and their number one priority and we could not be more grateful for all of their efforts. Our stomachs thank them too. :)

I can't say enough great things about Fresh Company! There name is true.. the food could not have been more fresh and delicous! They went above and beyond to accomodate our needs. We had a Kosher wedding and they had no problem working with us to make it happen even though they aren't usually a Kosher Caterer. They hired the rabbi to oversee it and worked with Kosher rentals. My family, who is not used to Kosher food absolutely loved everything (and of course so did his family.) They worked with our budget and our desires for the type of feel we were going for. They also did all of the coordinating with all of the rental company since our venue required renting a tent, tables, and chairs. I could not have done this without them!

We were very pleased with Fresh Company for our wedding reception in the Hudson Valley. They were very attentive to our guests and always checked with me before proceeding with anything (e.g., cake cutting). Best of all, the food was outstanding, and we live in Manhattan, where excellent food is abundant. The guests all loved the food. They even made flank steak (which I chose based on price) taste like an expensive cut of meat. They traveled over an hour to our reception site, yet the food was still fresh. The company is named appropriately! They also stretched our dollar, as we had a limited budget. Unfortunately, Deb--who handled many of my questions throughout the planning process--is no longer with the company, but I think you'll be in good hands regardless.

I worked with Fresh Company on my June wedding and they were fantastic! The food was absolutely delicious. We chose Fresh based on their amazing appetizers that we were able to sample during our tasting, however we had never tried the entrees. We were not disappointed. We had delicious, local, wonderful food served at our wedding. The cocktail hour appetizers were not your typical wedding fare, which we loved. And our guests seemed to love them! The dinner was family style and the service was fantastic. Chelsea was wonderful to work with in the planning process and really helped bring our vision to reality. We were planning our wedding on a bit of a budget and Fresh Company was more than willing to work with us. I do think that they are not as used to working within a tight budget, so we did have to work a bit harder to get things in a reasonable budget, when it came to things like the catering, etc -- but they were gracious about it. They assign a separate person to be your point person for the event, which is great, but after emailing back and forth with Chelsea so much I almost wished that we could have worked with her. All in all, we would absolutely recommend them to future brides and grooms who want their wedding food to be out of the ordinary and to be a main part of the event.

Fresh company was absolutely wonderful. Many guests said that ours was the best wedding food they've ever tasted! If you use them, be sure to get the meatball hors d'ouvres. They are to die for! Truly professional, and everything looked and tasted perfect.
