Vibrant Table does flowers too. I shopped other florist to find them to be very helpful and thrilled to be working with an older Gay couple. They were the most organized, best priced, and friendliest. The did a completely modern floral arrangements for us. I requested no carnations, no roses, and no snap dragons. Instead, I got orchids, succulents, calla lilies, and a host of unique materials. Every table arrangement was different and interesting. My mother loved them, and he's had been in the floral industry for years. I will be using them for my Christmas party.

My husband and I recently got married in Hawaii, and had a reception at a winery in Forest Grove. Vibrant Table did an outstanding job. Not only was the food delicious, and the staff highly professional and friendly, but Kathryn, my contact, was outstanding. She was highly organized and communicative, and handled everything. I didn't need to worry about anything. Her attention to detail was in stark contrast to the wedding planner we used in Hawaii. I highly recommend Vibrant Table.

We just had our daughter's wedding reception at the Treasury Ballroom and catered by Vibrant Table. We could not be more pleased with catering services provided by Vibrant Table. The food was awesome and we received many compliments from the guests. We worked with Aurianna during the planning process and she was very knowledgeable, responsive and great to work with. VT allowed us to customize the menu to get exactly what we wanted. The staff was very courteous and helpful in the clean-up! We also contracted with Vibrant Flowers for the floral and they did an awesome job as well.

Our daughter just had her combined Christian and Hindu wedding ceremonies and reception at the Portland Art Museum this past weekend. Vibrant did the catering, decor, and flowers and did an absolutely AMAZING job! They were able to create settings that were absolutely magical...from the simplicity of the Christian ceremony that looked elegant with white drapery and pops of color from beautiful flower arrangements...to a mandap that absolutely took our breath away due to the rich blend of colors, lighting, and flowers that made the mandap glow...to the reception with shimmery colored table cloths, lighting, and gorgeous floral table arrangements. Karen Rich from Vibrant was excellent! She provided great service, advice, consistently responded to emails quickly, and was always on top of what was happening. She and her staff helped transform our dreams into reality by ensuring that all details were taken care of according to plans. We received so many compliments from guests, both Indian and non-Indian, that the food, which was a combination of Indian and American cuisine, was "fabulous" and the entire event was "so amazing". They were able to provide a high level of quality, responsiveness, and creativity that made our wedding such a huge success.

The first thing that everyone talked about the day after my wedding was how amazing the food was! Vibrant table came highly recommended, so i knew it would be good and it truly was. I requested a garnish for my champagne cocktail at the last min, and they made it happen. I wanted my wedding to be like attending an high end restaurant and that is what they made it seem like!! I am very pleased with my decision to go with Vibrant Table.

I could not have been happier, more relaxed, and totally satisfied with the service I received from Vibrant Table! My husband and I, our families, and entire wedding party would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding caterer. They are professional, experienced, personable, and super creative! They made my day so easy and relaxed, no joke! I did not feel stressed that there were things getting overlooked at any point! They know what they are doing, so everything runs so smoothly! I was so impressed with the responsiveness I received through communicating with them. I was never left in the dark and all of my questions or concerns were answered and addressed within 24 hours. They went above and beyond to make sure that our day was perfect and there was literally nothing that I would have changed! If you choose to work with them you will not be disappointed!

I have nothing but praise for Vibrant Table. They catered my daughter's wedding at the Bossanova Ballroom on Saturday, Sept 8. Emily Michel, the event manager, was a joy to work with, the food was FABULOUS (everyone I talked to said it was the best wedding food ever!), and the staff was attentive and thoughtful. I have given a lot of parties, and I know how crucial the caterer is to all aspects of the event. Vibrant Table met and exceeded all my expectations.

Vibrant Table was excellent to work with. They worked hand in glove with my wedding planner and the event was seamless. The tasting experience was wonderful: we were surprised by how much food we were provided and how patient everyone was! These folks took great care of my guests, and now several months later one of the most common feedback comments I get about my wedding was HOW DELICIOUS THE FOOD WAS!! I had happy, well fed guests and Vibrant Table met my budget constraints...what more could a bride ask for?

I didn't plan to spend as much money on catering when we initially set out planning my daughters wedding, but let me tell you I don't regret it one bit! Vibrant Table is worth the money. The planning was so easy with Auriana. She remembered every little detail of our conversations and always undated the contract with them and would send me a copy. Her suggestions were excellent and I totally trusted her opinions. She always responded quickly to emails and picked up the phone every time I called her the last week or so before the wedding when I was sick of emailing so much.
The food was delicious, and I received so, so many compliments from the guest on the food and the wonderful service! So glad Vibrant Table was the exclusive caterer at the time I booked with Zenith, or I may have gone with someone less expensive. You definitely get what you pay for with Vibrant Table!! They're awesome!

Vibrant Table is spendy, but if great food and quality service is high on your priority list (higher than photography or venue), then they are the best in the business! Their staff was just amazing... so genuinely kind and friendly. The food is also FANTASTIC! For us, the tasting didn't do the day-of food justice (way better at the wedding than at the tasting), even though the food at the tasting was still delicious. Our coordinator was also great, super flexible and very personable. I would definitely recommend them!

I don't have anything bad to say about Vibrant Table, it was all SPECTACULAR. The food is amazing, it all came out on time, perfect temperature, nothing was dry or undercooked. Not only that, but Auriana, Page and Matt were a great source for questions of all types, even those not regarding catering or flowers. And the FLOWERS! They were even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! I believe that between my handmade decorations, and Page's flowers the feel and ambiance of our wedding was a complete success. I love everything Page and Auriana/Matt did for our wedding. Oh and Clay was FANTASTIC. He was on top of everything and kept everyone super happy!
THANK YOU! You guys are the best team !

I cannot count how many of our wedding guests came up to us during and weeks after the wedding saying how wonderful the food was! They said it was the best wedding food they have ever had and I believe it! Not only was the food amazing, but the service was above and beyond all of my expectations. My groom and I took a private moment after the ceremony and since we were missing the yummy food and drinks at cocktail hour, they brought them to us! For dinner they also brought custom plates of food to us so we for sure got to eat! They checked on us periodically through out the night to make sure we had everything we needed.
Our venue had Vibrant Table as an exclusive caterer so we did a lot of coordinating through VT and they were amazing. They responded to my emails so promptly, met all of my requests and needs, wonderful menu tasting, two cake tastings, and even did a walk through of the venue where we took two hours going through our whole proposal and floor plans fine tuning every little detail.

I cannot count how many of our wedding guests came up to us during and weeks after the wedding saying how wonderful the food was! They said it was the best wedding food they have ever had and I believe it! Not only was the food amazing, but the service was above and beyond all of my expectations. My groom and I took a private moment after the ceremony and since we were missing the yummy food and drinks at cocktail hour, they brought them to us! For dinner they also brought custom plates of food to us so we for sure got to eat! They checked on us periodically through out the night to make sure we had everything we needed.
Our venue had Vibrant Table as an exclusive caterer so we did a lot of coordinating through VT and they were amazing. They responded to my emails so promptly, met all of my requests and needs, wonderful menu tasting, two cake tastings, and even did a walk through of the venue where we took two hours going through our whole proposal and floor plans fine tuning every little detail.

We used Vibrant Table for our wedding catering and floral at the Gerding Theater. They were fantastic to work with! Page did a fantastic job with our floral (LOVED my bouquet, amazing!!) and she took my vision and ran with it. David was so helpful and accommodating too - super nice, professional and detailed.

I think really, the highest point of their service is the quality of the food. Our guests were so impressed with the meal. It was truly, truly delicious. I have never had spectacular buffet-style food and this meal was phenomenal. Worth every penny.

A friend was married in Dundee a couple months ago and Vibrant table did the food and flowers and they were absolutely amazing! I can't tell you how beautiful the presentation of the food was- it really was almost breathtaking. As for how it tasted- mouth watering. It really was so good- people kept commenting all night about the food and how good it was. They set up some decor and lights outside on the deck, too, and it was just the right touch or ambiance, very romantic. The flowers were phenomenal- my friend has a bit of a quirky style, and the flowers fit her to a T while being very classy. It was so neat how they used such different plants and flowers together to make such beautiful things- I'd never seen arrangements like that at a wedding and it was just gorgeous.

When I booked my ceremony/reception venue they were working exclusively with Vibrant Table. Being from Salem, we were not that familiar with VT - but were extremely pleased from the first moment we met with our event coordinator. I had been informed by a friend (& local wedding planner) to request a specific coordinator, Auriana Albree, and have to say that she was fantastic from the very beginning. We were able to sit down with her in the VT space and really discuss how we wanted our entire event to play out. She helped us with the ceremony set up/design, with the timeline for the entire evening, and with deciding on our food and overall feel for the reception.
The contact aspect was phenomenal. VT, and Auriana specifically, was great at responding to any questions or minor change that was made. I'd send off a quick change of seating or table numbers - and Auriana would respond within half an hour and would include an updated layout(both ceremony & reception) for me.
Our day of site manager, Kevin, was great also. He worked great with my day of coordinator and ensured that all issues were handled without me ever knowing! The service of the entire staff was wonderful; they were prompt, stayed on our timeline, ensured that the food never was empty, and most of all - they were professional & kind to our guests.
Probably the most significant experience I had with VT & their kindness/professionalism actually took place after my event. In the hustle & bustle of the night, I had forgotten my bouquet on the head table. On my bouquet was my grandmother's necklace. Upon returning home from my honeymoon I got in contact with VT to try & locate the bouquet & necklace. They were so diligent about checking with all the staff that worked our event - and eventually tracked down someone who had taken the bouquet home w/o realizing the necklace was attached. They were able to return my necklace to me and were so incredibly helpful and kind thru out.
Vibrant Table will forever get my songs of praise -- I'm still getting compliments on how nice the entire evening was & I really thank Vibrant Table & Auriana for helping us create such a wonderful evening for us, our family & our friends!

Vibrant Table provided the catering and flowers for my wedding and arranged for the rentals and cake via their contacts for me. They made planning a Portland, OR wedding from Europe so much easier. They were easy to work with and had great ideas and were able to create the most beautiful wedding setting for us. The flowers were incredible, the food was delicious, and the staff were friendly, professional and thoughtful. We highly recommend them!

I cannot say enough great things about Vibrant Table! The quality of food and service are top notch and being in the wedding biz I've experienced a wide variety of caterers. Vibrant Table was one of the reasons we selected the venue we did for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made! We worked with Karen Rich throughout the planning process and Matt Brodeur was our Event Manager on our big day and both went above and beyond to ensure every detail was attended to and made perfect for us. Their staff worked tirelessly to ensure all of the setup was completed on time and since our ceremony and reception were in the same room, they had to do a partial room change which was both efficient and smooth. They not only made sure my husband and I were well taken care of but that each of our guests had a memorable experience as well, and three months later people are still telling us that ours was the best wedding they've ever been to and that the food was incredible! I would HIGHLY recommend Vibrant Table to any couple who has the opportunity to bring them into their wedding venue, and fortunately they are exclusive at some of the best spots in the Portland/Salem area!

This vendor is exceptional! We worked directly with Eric Sandstrom who did a fabulous job for our day. They had a full staff on site to help out with all the little problems that would arise (like when it started to rain) and they were on top of everything. The food was wonderful, they grilled salmon on site which added a nice aromatic effect to the day and they made sure that my husband and I were taken care of throughout the night, whether it was getting us a drink or a slice of cake or just checking on how we thought everything was going. They exceeded my expectations on many levels and became a huge resource on the day of our wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend them. The price we paid was based on a 100 person wedding or so, with a beer/wine bar and our cake.

We used Vibrant Table as the florist for our wedding and were thrilled with the results. I came to their florist with ideas and pictures of the look that I wanted. She was professional, artistic, and full of great ideas. Some of the flowers I wanted were either out of season or would have been to expensive for our budget. She offered wonderful suggestions of alternatives so that I could get what I wanted. All of the arrangements and bridal party flowers were fabulous and perfect for our wedding. I would use VT or suggest them to anyone else in a heartbeat.

My wedding was so memorable becasue she NAILED THE FLORAL! Just nailed it. The blooms were bigger and better then i could have ever asked for. I will never forget my practially perfect planning experience with her at the VT location as well as her cost saving ideas to make my day more special.

When my then-fiance and I were planning our wedding, we knew that one of the most important things to have at our wedding was good food. And sure enough, over one year since our wedding, people are still talking about the food we had. From the appetizers of mint-pesto lambchops to the steak bites with bleu cheese, and greek feta skewers to the elaborate plated dinner of chicken stuffed with gorgonzola and prosciutto with winter vegetables to the amazing desserts of chocolate mousse, shortbread cookies, and panna cotta. It was all amazing. The staff were so responsive during the ceremony and so helpful during the planning process. We were so satisfied with the food and service that we've used their catering services for other events and will continue to do so in the future.

We ended up with Vibrant Table as our caterers as they had a contract with our venue, which we lovde. We should have guessed by the professionalism of our venue, that they would never pick a bad contract caterer. They were excellent from the start. Very prompt in returning phone calls, emails and setting appointments. They were more than accommodating when helping us choose a menu, and even provided me with my own Gluten / dairy free dinner for the night of our wedding. The food was amazing, all of our guests raved about it and the service. The wait staff the night of our wedding was also amazing, in addition to our VT point person being on site. They have a great working relationship with both our coordinator and the venue. Their prices are the cheapest around, but in this instance, you get what you pay for! Great food, service and rave review from our guests. They even had our left overs (what little remained) packed up, and labeled for us to take along after the reception. I didn't have to worry about a thing!

The food looked amazing and I had almost a dozen people talk to me in the weeks following our wedding about how delicious the food was. We actually didn't get a chance to eat because of our photographers taking us away during dinner (long story). However when we got back, the caterer brought us warm plates of food that they made for us but we were too busy and tired to eat. So as far as taste goes...I'm solely going by what my guests have told me (and my family still talks about the food to this day...and my wedding was over a year ago!). As far as how it was working with them, they were very professional, easy to get a hold of, very accommodating when we wanted to change things around, and I truly feel this company is the best money can buy. They are a little expensive, but if you can afford them, it is well worth your money. They even have a "day of" wedding coordinator that stays there and makes sure everything is done right and runs on schedule. This company really made me feel like a princess on her special day. All throughout the day, our coordinator was always checking on us to see if we needed anything. I was a little worried about spending so much money on catering, but I'm so glad I did it.

I started with a different caterer at the Vibrant Table and was less than excited. I then changed to Kurt and Megan and they were phenomenal. They are so fun to work with and have great taste. We are foodie snobs and they appreciated that and made sure the food was excellent. I have rarely found that wedding food is good (food on a big scale doesn't always tend to be good) and our food was amazing. I still have people telling me how great it was. They also let us bring in catering from a local indian restaurant becasue they knew they would not be able to cook as authentically, which i thought was really nice of them (since so many caterers won't allow it). They are wonderful.

I'd give 4.5 stars if I could. Vibrant Table is great. They are pros. We worked with Kathy for our wedding at The Treasury Ballroom. They were great about getting communicating with my mother and I through the whole process...this was especially important because we don't live in Portland. They frequently updated our contract as changes came along, and I appreciated the specificity of the documentation they utilize. I was especially thrilled by they're collaboration with us on the menu. Vibrant Table put forth great ideas for our wedding meal, and noted all of all specifications. The day of our wedding was a dream. Kyle was our day-of manager, and he was fantastic to have be a part of our day. The staff was so considerate of us and the wedding party, checking in with me throughout the night to make sure I was getting everything I wanted in terms of food and beverage. I would add, that as someone who works in food/beverage hospitality, this was the most important aspect of our wedding for us. The food was excellent and delicious. The staff was fun and friendly. Kathy even came for part of the event to make sure it was proceeding as planned. As with any event of this nature there were 1-2 miscommunications, but all in all, I would recommend VT for any event; they are well established and personable.

When we booked our wedding at the Portland Art Museum, we were so excited to hear that we would also be getting to work with Vibrant Table catering and events to help us pull our wedding together.

Fantastic people at Vibrant Table. We put the bulk of the cost of the wedding into food for 146 people, and although it was plenty expensive, without exception, we had guests say it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The only glitch was the cake. Made by another vendor, (or actually not made), it never showed up. Thankfully the VT people actually went to a store, during the reception, and bought another cake. They served it, and never even charged us for the time and trouble to do so. Like us, they waited for the cake vendor until it was too late. Stress, yes, but it came out fine in the end.
Again, super food, great service and they helped out in an emergency. Highly rated.

I had the pleasure of working with Karen at Vibrant Table for our wedding a few weeks back. Although they were pricey, Karen was able to work with me and to come up with options that fit my budget. Her and her staff were always very responsive to my millions of questions throughout the whole process. On the day of, everything went smoothly (at least as far as I know!). All of the guests raved about the food. I would recommend them to anyone getting married in the Portland area.

Eric from Vibrant Table was amazing. He helped us work within our budget to have the fantastic blowout wedding that we wanted. We used the Treasury Ballroom for our ceremony and reception venue and it was wonderful. Page did an amazing job on our flowers and I was so impressed with how well she listened. The food was incredible as always, and because they own the Treasury it is less expensive. The site itself had all of the old hollywood glamour and romance that we were looking for. Wonderful! I would recommend them to anyone!

Venue was just perfect in size and ambiance. Food was amazing for the price. Flexibility phenomenal. Only issues we ran into were:
1- lack of communication btwn staff leading to no idea how to set up decor and calling the bride 30 mins before arriving at the venue
2- floral did make corsages for the mothers, just boutineeres
3- not doing the bouquets and boutineeres correctly to the point where bridesmaids and coordinator for the night had to stick peacock feathers randomly in the bouquets and groomsmen scrambled to put some in their boutineeres

Other than those, I really so appreciate the coordinator that was there and what she did all night. Communication was wonderful and she was bet accommodating with all the little changes made by the guests. Thanks Sarah! My wedding night was amazing and beautiful.

Vibrant Table's food is absolutely spectacular. It's really not anything fancy, but they prepare it to perfection. Our guests are still raving about the food, saying it was the best that they have ever had at a wedding. We are still craving the food and wished we had more leftovers to take home with us. Their seafood station was a huge hit. Such fresh oysters, plump and well-prepared crab claws, delicious scallop ceviche! I wish there was a seafood restaurant that had such quality as Vibrant Table presented to us.

Book them for the food alone! Everyone will be happy.

The catering for our wedding turned out wonderfully. Everyone commented on how great the food was. I especially liked how the caterers visited the bridal suite before the wedding to see if we needed anything brought up to the room as we were getting ready. They also did a great job at the actual wedding with considering small details and going above and beyond with their service. They responded promptly to all calls/emails, so they really reduced the stress that comes with planning a wedding. They were also extremely flexible, which was important because I had many small changes to details during the planning process. None of these details were forgotten, no matter how small.
I was a bit uneasy at the start of the planning, because our event manager seemed to be strongly encouraging us to add things that we really didn't need (extra votive candles, more expensive meal options, cocktail hour, etc.). We ended up having to go through our quote multiple times to cut out many items in order to stay within our budget. They are quite expensive, so at times I really had concerns about going over our budget. I was able to find linens and candles at a cheaper price than they offered, and I felt like our event manager was not happy that we weren't using them for these services (understandably so, but it really comes down to the $). Our venue used Vibrant Table as their exclusive caterer, so with their higher prices, we wished that we could have shopped around a bit for a more affordable option. That being said, you definitely get the quality that you pay for, and we were very happy with how our catering turned out on the big day!

Vibrant Table is the exclusive caterer for the venue we chose. Our coordinator, Eric, was very helpful, but hard to get ahold of once wedding season got in full swing. Since our wedding wasn't until October, most of the questions we had about catering and decor came up during the summer months and Eric didn't really have any time to meet with us to discuss our questions. Everything was handled by phone or through email. We found out the week of our wedding that Eric would not be at the event, instead Crystal would be our event manager. She turned out to be really nice, but since we hadn't been working with her all along she had to keep soming up and asking me questions on the day of because she hadn't been told how things should be set up or what time things were going to be happening. The food was good and all the staff at our wedding was really nice. However, if you choose a Vibrant Table venue, DO NOT use their in house florist. We used her because we thought it would be easier than having to find another florist and have one more person to worry about. We should have just spent the time finding another florist. All we had her doing was 4 bouquets and 5 boutonnieres plus the flower girl's ball of flowers (we had candle based centerpieces and she was going to charge too much to do them so we just did them ourselves) and she didn't get any of them right. My bouquet was supposed to be mostly orchids, the bridesmaids were supposed to be mostly lilys, but we all got half orchid, half lily. Mine was just a little bigger. All the boutonnieres were the wrong flowers. She came back just before the ceremony with the right flowers, but we'd already done all our formal pictures with the wrong ones.

NOT WORTH THE HIGH PRICES!

PROS:
The venue was just beautiful! The decor they provided was great (although spendy...), we rented an aisle runner from them at the last minute and they helped set it up. Very grateful for this. They also worked with us on payment issues we had after a family tragedy. Very kind and helpful in that regard. Food service was good. The drinks were served right, everyone came away happy with that. Guests loved the venue.

CONS:
The food was just average for the Portland area. Cheesy bread was hard and dry. There was horrible communication from the coordinators from the start. Original coordinator quit in the middle of planning and we had to meet with a new person who had completely different info. Very confusing! Coordinator was hard to reach during peak summer/wedding season, & we were referred a new coordinator who took over shortly before the wedding. She had sooo many questions for us & seemed to not really have a clue about our plans, etc. We didn't know who to talk to about anything at that point & didn't know that we'd be switching coordinators like that. Shockingly, she was the coordinator we had for the rehearsal. (What??) Calls were never answered by coordinators, & we spoke to receptionists over the phone more than anyone else. Took a long time to get a response via email since coordinators were out of the office so often. Decor wasn't set up right after they told us they'd help out; we had relied on them after they asked us not to bring very much help. Our main coordinator was at the wedding set-up for roughly 45 minutes, but then left before the ceremony. (???) We ordered our favorite beer for the bar, & were told it wasn't available less than a week before the wedding. They gave us a list to choose from, and we chose another one that we liked. On the wedding day, they served a completely different beer, one that we actually hate. How does this happen? The coordinators are definitely NOT wedding coordinators. They made this clear only DURING the final prep and AFTER the event was over. There were so many charges for random little things, and we were led to believe that it would all be worth it.

After the wedding when they asked us how it all went, we offered forth all of our compliments, followed by our disappointments. When the rubber meets the road, Vibrant Table referred back to the contract and apologized for the beer mistake only. They kept everything legal (I'm sure to avoid being sued) and we were too naive to see it from the start.

With some of the highest prices in downtown Portland, we thought we'd be blown away. We did not get our money's worth. If you want a great experience with this catering service, you better be very rich, or very ready to go into debt. Bottom line, go somewhere else.
