Daniel and Susan were wonderful to work with - accommodating, organized, and made the whole process stress-free. From coming with us to the rental company to help us design the look of our wedding to tastings and working with a family friend for a fish vendor, we couldn't have asked for more. They pulled together our ideal look perfectly on the day of, with minimal direction. Most importantly, their food was amazing - fresh, light, and delicious. So many of our wedding guests commented that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. I cannot say enough good things about working with them. The food was very important to us and we met with multiple caterers before choosing Let's Pretend - so happy we went with them!

Working with Let's Pretend was the best of all worlds; excellent food, incredible professionalism, and extremely reasonable price.

We wanted to be sure we had great food for our wedding but were very mindful of our budget; Liane and her team came through in a huge way.

Firstly, the food is amazing. We were blown away when we came in for our tasting--the hardest part was deciding what to exclude. Everything she brought out to us was something I would order again and again at any restaurant. She did not make saying no to seconds easy.

On the day of our wedding Let's Pretend took care of everything. They worked out all the details beforehand and hummed through the day like a well oiled machine. And everyone on staff was SO friendly and accommodating. Anything we needed they were immediately on top of, and the whole crew had an air of actually wanting to be there and make our day special--that went a long way.

And honestly, the rates were awesome. After we ran the numbers we realized we really struck gold--not only did all of our guests rave about the food, but Let's Pretend came in as the least expensive caterer by a wide margin. It's really rare to find that combination of great service and great value when you're planning anything with the word "wedding" attached to it, but Let's Pretend is all that and more. Working with them was a privilege and almost 4 months after our wedding people STILL bring up the food. We can't recommend them enough.

Liane and the rest of the team at Let's Pretend were absolutely incredible! They were organized, attentive, prompt, and most importantly their food was wonderful! We enjoyed every part of the process with Let's Pretend - from creating our personalized menu to executing our wedding day. Our cocktail hour (and a half) was delicious and the food was hot, yummy, and beautifully presented. Then dinner was just outstanding. Everything looked magical and creative and just how we had wanted. We felt so well-cared for and listened to and Liane really made sure to make all things food within the scope of our vision. Thank you Liane, Daniel, Brandi, and the rest of the team for the most special day! We unequivocally recommend Let's Pretend!

Liane and the team at Let's Pretend are just absolutely stunning -- MUST be the world's best caterers, and can't say enough good things about them. (1) They're all the nicest, most patient, and most helpful people you will ever meet. (2) Their food is AMAZING. Essentially very guest at our wedding told us that it was the best wedding food (or maybe food in general!) that they'd ever had.

LP catered our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception, and went FAR above and beyond the call of duty in coordinating so many additional logistics, from cocktail hour/reception timing and flow to helping set things up before the event. They were helpful in generating ideas, incredibly responsive to questions and concerns, and flexible in every detail of the event -- including coordinating multiple special dishes for people with dietary concerns.

I owe them truly from the bottom of my heart for making our wedding day so special (and delicious)!. I guarantee they would make any event just the best.

What can I say about Let's Pretend ... they are AWESOME! We didnt have a wedding planner, and we didn't need them with all of their help from the venue, to the catering, to band recommendations, cake baker, florists, drinks, set up, processions, you name it and they helped us with it. They are masters of their craft. We consider them family at this point. The food was amazing. Ever since our first taste testing we were so excited for food at our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Daniel & LeAnn even helped us with custom ideas from a giant donut stand to table settings. He took our vision and helped execute to it to beyond our imagination. We love them and wish we could get married all over again to enjoy the experience again!

My husband and I were married at The Barn at Lang Farm on June 20, 2015. Choosing a caterer was quite a difficult decision as there are so many to choose from, but we were beyond please with Let's Pretend! The food was absolutely spectacular, but more than that, the service that Lianne and her staff provided that made our day run so incredibly smoothly was incredible. They were able to make my vision in terms of the decor on the tables, the arrangement of the chairs for the ceremony, and all of the other little details come to life just as I had pictured everything in my head! We couldn't have been more pleased with Let's Pretend Catering! A huge thank you to Lianne and her staff!

This is the most amazing catering company I have ever worked with. I have been in the hospitality business via my family, and I have never had such an amazing experience, relationship wise and food wise. Lianne and Daniel are absolutely the best at what they do. Your food will be delicious, the production and execution will be flawless, and the presentation will be jaw dropping. I will never hire anyone else from now on for any catering event! My wedding was a dream come true because of them and all my guests have gone out of their way to comment on it. You will not be disappointed!

We are not local to Vermont, but when we decided to get married at Shelburne Farms and we were looking at several options for catering, Let's Pretend came highly recommended by friends in the area. We could not have been happier with our decision to go with them! My husband and I were dreading many parts of the planning process, but when we met with Liane and Daniel for our tasting they were so friendly and enthusiastic about the whole experience that they gave us the boost we needed and we actually started to get excited about the event!

Throughout the whole planning process they were flexible and brought great ideas to us. When we couldn't decide between a sit down meal or a buffet style, they listened to our vision for the day and suggested a family style meal, which proved to be a glorious fit to the long tables we had our guests seated at. The presentations of the food were so beautiful that they became the centerpieces of our tables, which saved us money and worry, but also felt warm and festive.

Not only were they brilliant on the food end, but Daniel helped to create the most beautiful ambience. We had some big ideas, but weren't quite sure how to put it all together. Daniel just let us leave all the elements with him (and I completely trusted him) and he and his crew made the whole space warm and magical - more beautiful than we could have imagined.

Back to the food. Oh, the food! We had dozens of guests telling us it was one of the best meals they had ever had and was by far the best food at a wedding they had ever eaten. They source their ingredients from what is local and sustainable so the meal truly felt unique to the day and season and the place.

We were so happy to have found Let's Pretend and if we ever find ourselves in the area planning an event again, they will be the first ones we think of!

The food was incredible at our wedding!!! We had 300 guests and Let's Pretend prepared food for cocktails, the reception dinner and food for an after-party. I am still hearing from guests how impressed they were, both with the quality and that everything arrived hot.
Their professionalism was also top-notch. From the beginning, they worked very collaboratively and made it clear that they would prepare whatever we wished. I highly recommend them.
