Lon Lane's Inspired Occasions catered our wedding and rehearsal and not only was the food incredible but the staff and service was amazing! Our guests raved about the food and wanted their website to use them for future events. They not only helped with every food detail but also helped when it came to rentals with Celebrations. Our day was perfect thanks to them!
