We used Rania's catering for our son' wedding at The Pennsylvanian. Everything turned out just beautiful!! The food was delicious from the appetizers to the cake and desserts!
The best part was on that day, all we had to do was show up and enjoy the wedding!

I can't tell you the number of compliments that I got on the food at our wedding. Especially on the passed appetizers at cocktail hour. Rania agreed to cater our meal "family-style" without trying to talk me out of it; she knew exactly what was needed and was also able to guide me on table sizes, etc. You aren't able to do a tasting before you sign on with Rania, but it's not necessary. They are happy to take your feedback during the later tasting and adjust for the wedding meal. But the food is just incredible, whether is a fancier dish or the rustic bbq meal that we had. Rania comes with a cake-baker, bartenders, a reception coordinator, along with everything else you would expect from the caterer. She also coordinated all of my orders with the rental company in addition to keeping tabs on all of my other vendors. I had wished for more communication during the planning process, but I'm pretty sure that was me trying to be nice and not bother busy people. The event went incredibly smoothly and our event coordinator knew her stuff! A plate of appetizers was ready for us after photos, she boxed up slices of cake for us to eat the next day. She even packaged up some of our meal, since I wasn't able to eat much at dinner! Highly recommend, but it does come at a higher price.

Rania's Catering did my son's wedding in August at Armstrong Farms. We started with the passed hot appetizers. Everything from pulled pork sliders to figs stuffed with Goat Cheese The entree was absolutely fabulous, grilled/cooked to perfection onsite by chefs. We had the duet plate of Filet Mignon and Crab Cake and a vegetarian choice of an Eggplant dish. The salad was a Caprese salad and homemade breads i.e.: (zucchini) in the bread basket. People kept coming up to me all night saying it was the best wedding meal they have ever had. Rania takes care of EVERY detail you can imagine. Rania's staff is equally top notch. Cindy, Rania's floor manager made sure the bride an groom were taken care of all evening. Cindy had appetizers and drinks waiting right after the ceremony and pictures. Then she made sure that cookies and dessert were boxed up for them, so that they missed out on nothing. Cindy even sewed the brides hem back on her gown. Terry the head bartender made sure that everyone was having a great time and also making sure that no one got out of control.All of Rania's staff were there to make sure that our evening was a success. Through the staff's professionalism, kindness, and over the top planning and caring from Rania our evening was just perfect!! Many Thanks Please keep in mind the price included all of my rental needs for the barn, not just the food.

If you want a 5 star meal planned expressly for you from the freshest, highest quality ingredients, prepared the day of your event by chefs retained for your event, Rania is the caterer for you. You will select from a huge menu of appetizers, salads, entrees and sides to create the banquet of your dreams. For our daughter's wedding, Rania created six freshly made, beautifully presented hot appetizers, passed by her pleasant servers during the cocktail hour. The meal we selected gave guests a choice from three entrees. Each entree was paired with freshly prepared sides chosen expressly for that entree alone. Additionly homemade chicken fingers, homemade mac and cheese and a fresh fruit cup were served to the children 10 and under. Absolutely every item was served at the peak of flavor. Nothing is kept in warmers. No embellished bag of salad. All meats, fruits,,vegetables were of the highest grade., nothing prepackaged or frozen. The wedding cake prepared for our couple was the most complicated one of a number of cakes they presented to her pastry chef. Without knowing which one our daughter liked best, the pastry chef suggested the very one that was her first choice. No shortcuts here.
Rania is friendly, unfazed, organized and very professional. She is excellent at helping to plan your banquet and organize your event and keeping all vendors and the family on the same page.
Our guests raved about the food. So many said it was the best food they ever had at any event! In fact, one guest who loves filet said that it was the best filet he ever tasted and he has enjoyed filet in many top restaurants.
Rania prices are at the higher end. But if you are able and interested in a uniquely fresh and exciting presentation Rania will not disappoint.

Rania is the best of the best, and I could never imagine recommending anyone else for your wedding caterer. After booking our venue, we explored the preferred caterers. I had a strong feeling we'd end up selecting Rania from the beginning. Her prices shocked me until I realized the difference between booking Rania versus another company. With Rania, you don't just get true homemade food (nothing frozen or pre-cooked) - you get Rania herself, and she is an absolute dynamo. She is someone who knows the wedding business like the back of her hand, and she doubles as your caterer and event planner/organizer. I'm still so impressed with how efficient she is with the amount of things she does in a day! Whenever I needed advice, she was easy to reach, very responsive, and extremely helpful. If I had an issue with another vendor, she even took it upon herself to contact them and settle it (this stunned my mother and I the first time she did it!). She made our floor plan, designed a very cool king's table for us, and organized all of our vendors a few days before! Rania's food is incomparable and *unbelievably* delicious. We had some dietary restrictions (many vegetarians), and my extremely picky husband, and she was sensitive to everyone. So many guests filled up on the amazing hors d'oeuvres before dinner, including myself! We had several guests tell us throughout the night it was the best wedding food they ever had, and I enthusiastically agree (and not just because it was my wedding - it was spectacular). I wasn't sure about our wedding cake selection because her pastry chef was going to do our wedding cake as well. So, I showed her pastry chef several peacock-themed cakes I liked. I was honestly surprised when she picked one of the most elaborate ones! The cake was stunning and scrumptious! The staff at our reception was also extremely pleasant and professional. I give Rania my highest of recommendations. You are in excellent and VERY capable hands with her.

We could not have made a better choice in Rania's Catering. Rania and her staff walked us through every aspect of planning our wedding and managed to make our day a dream come true. It was a truly a one stop shop as they guided us through securing a venue, a florist, and choosing a band. The personal service was unparalleled and Rania could not have been nicer.
