We selected Trumpet Vine as our caterer based on the recommendation from our planner. We didn't want to do the traditional sit down meal, rather something a little more interesting. We were having a smaller wedding (50 people) at a vineyard, and we really wanted to showcase the wine, but also give people a variety of foods to choose from. When we spoke to Trumpet Vine initially, we all came up with the idea of having food stations that would indicate wine or beer pairings. They put together a sample menu for us, and that was pretty much it! We didn't even do a tasting, as we were confident in their abilities based on their reviews and menu selections. Our expectations were FAR exceeded on the day of our wedding. We had passed appetizers, and the trumpet vine staff actually came up to the top of the hill where we were having our photos done to pass around food to our guests. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Everyone raved about the food stations, but I also love the decor. They put so much effort into making the food not only taste good, but LOOK good too. It tied in so well with our setting. They even partnered with our florist to make sure everything went well together. They were a little pricey from our original budget, but you get what you pay for. Worth every penny. I'm still dreaming about some of the food they prepared! You will not find another caterer better than Trumpet Vine for your big day. I only wish I had another event coming up so I could work with them again!

Trumpet Vine impressed us right from the first bite. The care that they put into just the tasting made it clear to us that not only did their team cook great food, but that they would also put everything they had into making our day special. It is a testament to them that we had many of our guests coming up to us and complimenting the food. The Italian themed dishes they served perfectly complimented the scenery at the winery where we got married, and looked great on our long oak feasting tables. Every dish, from the arancini to the seabass to the steak was mouth-wateringly excellent, and we will be dreaming about the bacon wrapped medjool dates for the rest of our lives! In all seriousness, we cannot recommend Trumpet Vine enough.

This is a review for Trumpet Vine's service, because you can't be in the service industry and treat your clients like they "owe" you or speak to them like they are trash. We pay for a service, you deliver it. It should be simple. I am not paying thousands of dollars to flatter you, I am paying in exchange for professionalism and catering services. Trumpet Vine is accustomed to a clientele that does not blink when handing over their credit cards and it shows in the offense they take when their pricing is questioned or when their contract and policies are scrutinized. They have no sympathy for brides who are on a budget and are trying to have a beautiful, but still affordable, wedding. I am not criticizing the food, the setup, or the servers the day of the actual wedding, because we are very satisfied with that, I am dissatisfied with the way that we were spoken to by their head Chef, Jennie Sturgeon. She is very arrogant, condescending, and insulted us by saying we were ungrateful and rude and that TVC was the only reason our wedding was a success. TVC is very slow in responding unless it has to do with payment, and they are incredibly disorganized without taking responsibility for their faults and instead enjoy blaming their clients for their oversights. I would not recommend Trumpet Vine Catering to any bride who wants to be treated with respect.

Trumpet Vine Catering responded with the following comments:

As a result of changes to their event timeline, as per their contract, the Client is responsible for overtime staff charges. We gave 100% and TVC did a great job as acknowledged by this Client, but they ultimately chose not to pay their final bill which fueled this negative review. We hope potential Clients will browse through our many other positive reviews that speak to our professionalism and level of service over the past 15 years.

I don't even know where to start. Gayle and Trumpet Vine Catering were just phenomenal from day 1 until the "big day". Gayle was super responsive and happy to answer any and ALL questions. She also worked with my wedding planner to make sure everything was on point, which made for a very stress-free experience for me :) On the day of my wedding, everything was top-notch. From the beautiful displays, the excellent food, the level of professionalism with the service...I can't say enough good things! We STILL have guests telling us how impressed they were with the food and service! Apparently, it's a rare thing to not only have delicious food at a wedding but also stellar service. One guest was telling me how a server went out of their way to make sure the guest had exactly what they wanted. I love this story. And the day was a blur for me but when I got to see my pictures later I was blown away by how perfect the set-up looked. They really pay attention to detail! Our welcome station and late-night milk and cookie bar were exceptional. Guests just really loved those extra touches.
And at the end of the night we had a HUGE tote bag full of food and cake...it was so much fun going back to the room later with my husband, reminiscing and munching on leftovers :-) The tote bag is super nice, too. It's quality, just like everything else about this caterer.
Thank you Gayle and Trumpet Vine, for making my wedding day so wonderful and special!!!

Everything was absolutely beautiful and everyone (including me and my husband) was raving about the big Italian spread! I knew they were good before I booked them because our neighbor had used them for their wedding up in Paso a few years ago but I still was a little worried about how it would all turn out - cooking for 5 people is much different than cooking for 130 people and my family is so judge-y about food, especially Italian food (since we are Sicilian)...but it was so much more than I could have asked for! Absolutely delicious. My family is still talking about it and I can't even remember how many people came up to us throughout the night to tell us how fantastic the food was (one guest said, "I was totally expecting 'wedding food' and, once I tasted the flatbread outside, I realized I would be chowing down instead of just picking through dinner to get something in my stomach." ;-)) Some people said they were so full just from cocktail hour but they still stuffed their faces with dinner.

And the presentation was phenomenal. Although I completely missed cocktail hour (which I'm still bummed about because I wanted to eat the flatbreads we had decided on!), I saw pictures and wow. It looked so great! And we chose family style service, which was a hit with everyone.

The staff was also incredible. Throughout the process, I wanted to change the sauces on virtually all of our dishes and Gayle was super flexible with all the changes we made to the menu. We had numerous guests tell us that the servers were fantastic - quick, professional, really nice and really on top of it with keeping the food coming.

All in all, we were more than pleased, as was my family and all of our guests. Gayle, the chef and the rest of the Trumpet Vine team were incredible. If I worked in event planning, they would be my go-to every time.

Gayle and the staff at Trumpet Vine were an absolute pleasure to work with. Every single thing that they served was insanely delicious, the servers and bartenders were beyond friendly, and I can't even begin to tell you how many of our guests came up to tell me that it was the best meal (not just wedding food, but food in general) that they had had in a while. It was absolute perfection.

I absolutely LOVED working with Trumpet Vine! From the beginning, we did not consider any other caterer. It was clear that they were up for the job of working to create the vision that we had in mind (even when we requested a most elaborate tasting prior to deposit). All of their staff were professional and easy to work with. They struck a very well balanced approach of making suggestions for our event, telling us what worked for them in the past and what fizzled, and did not insist something be done differently than we wanted (even when we chose a set up or staff design that was different from the recommended). When we requested changes to our contract or suggestions to food options that fit within a specific budget, they immediately downsized and made adjustments that were agreeable to us.We were able to add anything back in (ah! Such was our planning process) with zero hassle.
Communicating with Jennie and Gayle prior to the event was flawless. Our emails were responded to promptly with equally prompt updates to out contract when applicable. Planning a wedding from 400 miles away didn't even affect how smoothly we planned with Trumpet Vine. I felt entirely confident turning over the set up work and rentals to Trumpet Vine. Given our event details, they were able to communicate everything we needed to the rental company and venue for me. I am so thankful for their coordination!
All of the food was delicious and as expected.There was plenty of food for people to feel like they had a full meal. They brought eye catching signage and décor to match our theme / font. Perhaps the most prominent and meaningful aspect of working with Trumpet Vine was the staff. Every person seemed genuinely happy to be there, friendly, relaxed, and attentive to each need. Multiple staff, more than once, were directly attentive to the two of us. I could not recommend Trumpet Vine more; they were outstanding in product, professionalism, staff, presentation, planning, and overall business.

Trumpet Vine provided wonderful food for the cocktail hour and reception. After our first meeting with them, they took our recommendations and worked with them to make the selections more flavorful and added additional items for contrast and interest. From the tea/lemonade and cookies that started the ceremony, to the coffee service at the end of the night, and the bourbon cart for the late night guests, they provided wonderful decor. I truly appreciated how responsive they were to us, the wedding couple, throughout the event as they checked to be certain that we were eating and that our young son was well fed too. We enjoyed the "going away bag" that they provided, packed with leftovers for the next day.
