We used Plated Events for our wedding and the food was DELICIOUS! Most of the time I am un-wowed by wedding food as it can feel very banquety cooking food in such large quantities. We had a delicious and unique menu and I know all of the guests at our wedding were very pleased by the food. They set up their cooking station on generators in the orchards right outside of our wedding venue where they were hidden. The food was fantastic, the service was amazing and very friendly, and the price is very reasonable. We are very happy we had them there for the one of the biggest days of our lives!

Jason and Jocelyn were amazing to work with! They stayed in our budget without having to sacrifice taste and quality of the food. They also made sure I had a delicious and hardy vegetarian meal without charging me for a "additional choice" or telling me i had to have a boring pasta like most caterers would do. I still crave it becauae it was so DELICIOUS! I'm still waiting for that recipe jason! Haha I would recommend them to anyone getting married or just needing a creative culinary experience for a dinner party. The food was anything but ordinary and boring like most wedding food I've tasted. Thank you to everyone at Plated Events!

We were married at Limoneira last month and so used Plated Events for our catering. Jason prepared a variety of wonderful dishes for our reception and dinner, and was very flexible in adapting his existing menus to meet our special requests. To choose our menu we were treated to an excellent tasting where we could sample several different options for each course. The burrito bar was a huge hit if you're looking for a more casual feel but still want excellent quality and flavor!

My only criticism is that they are slow to respond to questions.

We held our wedding at Limoneira's La Campana field and are so thankful we had Jason and Jocelyn as a part of our event. We wouldn't have found the location without Jason. We first fell in love with Plated Events when Jason shared his belief in 'farm to table,' as well as, his relaxed and confident, yet professional demeanor.

Throughout the planning process, I mainly worked with Jocelyn, Jason's wife and partner in the business. Like Jason, Jocelyn is very relaxed, helpful, and accommodating. In response to the other reviewer on this site, it is true some of the paperwork I received was unconventionally simple, but their authentic kindness and ability to help us put together our wedding that didn't feel like it came straight from a bridal factory was more important to us when compared with other vendors.

Now to the food. It was exceptional. I think it is too often we are removed from our food source, so finding Jason was a dream for us. Our tasting was held on Limoneira's farm. This is a real farm, not a perfectly manicured petting zoo farm, but a farm that has used tractors, hard-working people, and dust (although not in the food). We loved it! Jason is a great chef and being foodies we probably gave him more input than most of his clients, but he did not disappoint. Our tasting was perfect and our friends who are even bigger foodies are still raving about it. A friend facebooked this: "I love getting older. The food at weddings just keeps getting better." Our menu:
-Sweet mix salad tossed with Limoneira blood orange segments, Mcgrath brother’s strawberries, gorgonzola, and candied pecans, finished with a blood orange vinaigrette.
-Asparagus sautéed with panko, lavender, and grated asiago.
-Handmade raviolis filled with butternut squash and tossed in a brown butter Ojai medicinal sage sauce.
-Vegan paella *vegetarians only
-Pork roast slow cooked in a honey glaze and Limoneira citrus.
-Prime tri-tip slowly smoked over cherry wood chips.

Yum!

Plated Events is a husband wife duo that completely lacks organization in planning and coordinating catering events. They just did our wedding and throughout the six months we worked with them, we had numerous problems--lack of responsiveness, communication, and inconsistent messages from one meeting to the next. Their sample menus are random word documents from previous weddings and their emails are loaded with typos and completely unprofessional.

They completely forgot about our tasting after I'd confirmed months in advance, flew across the country for it, and threw something together at the last minute when I called to confirm. Needless to say the food was terrible--cheese enchiladas that were nothing more than dry flour tortillas with shredded cheese inside, and chicken and steak fajitas that were so overseasoned they tasted like the entire spice rack fell in the pan. They offered to hold a second tasting which my family attended and loved the food. Unfortunately, the food at our wedding wasn't up to the same standard and they ran out even after they had restricted our guests to one of the two entrees and took the food away before everyone was able to eat. We had only 95 people but had paid for 100 so we should have had plenty of food. The catering staff did eat dinner however.

Our contract said we could stay at the venue until midnight however the staff informed our planner the night of that we had to stop the reception by 9:30, and then again at 10:30 after she pushed back. We were able to keep the party going the full time but completely distracted me for the rest of the night. All this after the owner left the reception early to go home.

They were not prepared for the buffet line on time and were not ready to serve dessert despite getting advance notice from our planner. I had to walk over and grap one of the catering staff to serve our ice cream.

Finally they ran out of water started clearing out and taking down the tables before our guests left the party.

I would not recommend them to anyone despite the beautiful location for our wedding ceremony and reception, which is a real bummer because the caterer is the exclusive caterer for the site.
