•handle them with care, and
•serve them with love.

In this way, although we have traveled far and wide with our food, the core of what we do remains the same. We are passionate about the food we make, and we are excited to share it.

Whoa Nelly catered our wedding a couple weeks ago and the food was really delicious. Their menu ideas were creative, fresh and very yummy.

Our dinner service was family style and it was fun, social and all our guests seemed to enjoy it.

Many guest commented on how delicious the food was. They also worked with us on budget which we were grateful for.

Presentation was beautiful as well and service was attentive, friendly and laid back.

My only negative comment would be that communication with them was slow at times.

I had read this in another review (on another site) so I was somewhat prepared and consider myself a pretty laid back bride! But I will say as the day drew nearer it did get frustrating at times.

Be prepared to follow up with them (sometimes more than once) and if you are an impatient bride or planner it's something to consider.

If you can relax and trust that it will all work out alright (as I did) you'll be really happy with your experience. We were for sure.

I consider my wife a bit of a foodie, so when it came to looking for a caterer on our big day, we couldn't find just "any caterer" we had to have a great one.

Our biggest problem was that we were putting together our wedding on a budget with a medium sized guest list therefore finding a terrific caterer that wouldn't break our budget was going to be a challenge. A friend of ours suggested we try WhoaNelly! Catering and assured us that if we were able to get them to cater, that would be one less item we would have to worry about.

WhoaNelly turned out to be everything our friend described and more. The owners were very enthusiastic and quickly formed a good relationship with my wife and me. They were very helpful from the tasting, planning the dinner layout, all the way to the big day. Fortunately for me their pricing fit fairly well into our budget, and for my wife she savored every bite of dinner. Even our guests kept raving about the food for weeks after our wedding

Having had such a great experience with them I am pleased to highly recommend WhoaNelly! Catering to anyone looking to hire a top-end catering company. We will definitely be asking them to cater the next time we hold a large event.

Whoa Nelly just catered our destination wedding is Sedona, Arizona, and they could not have done a more amazing job. They rocked it on everything - from the planning, to the service, and especially to the food. They went above and beyond, and I have had so many compliments about the food. And, most important to me on the day: I can be a little type A, and when I saw how fabulously and flawlessly they were running the event, I could just relax and enjoy, knowing that my guests were being taken care of beautifully. And back to the food, because Whoa Nelly made sure I ate, bringing food to me when I was running around saying hi to people. It was AMAZING. We had a cocktail hour with passed hors d'ouevres, then a family-style dinner, and finally a desert table with a wedding cake and a fantastic spread of mini pies, salted caramel cup cakes, this fabulous caramel creme/foam/pudding thing in little mason jars that guests were actually grabbing extras of and hording at their tables, because it was so good (although there was plenty of everything.) The dinner was delicious - feta and watermelon salad, steak with avocado salsa, fish in corn succotash. It was a boiling hot day, and everything was so juicy, flavorful and fresh. Perfect! People told me it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. It was a fabulous meal, on par with what is served at top market-driven restaurants. I couldn't be more delighted. Thank you, Whoa Nelly!

WhoaNelly catered our wedding reception at Newland Barn in Huntington Beach, CA. The overall experience was wonderful. The food was delicious, fresh, seasonal and beautiful. Our reception took place in November so they came up with a fall inspired menu. They actually came up with several different options for us to choose from. Several guests said the spiced kabocha squash salad that was served was the best salad they had ever had! We had a cocktail hour with passed appetizers. The mini fish tacos were my favorite, I could have eaten a whole tray. These ladies have an exceptional eye for detail and sense of design. They spent a lot of time with us planning. They love weddings, are super knowledgeable and treated my special day with a lot of care. They worked within our modest budget and had a ton of suggestions and ideas. Beth made me an inspiration board to create a look and feel that was perfect for our location and season. She also made our wedding cake which was actually 3 different cakes, all different flavors, really yummy and displayed beautifully. The servers were great and very attentive. Our guests were commenting all night about how much they enjoyed the food. I highly recommend WhoaNelly catering.

We were so lucky to work with WhoaNelly for our wedding. We wanted interesting, market fresh food that was sophisticated but not too fussy. They gave us lots of choices and we left some of the final choices up to them regarding what was fresh/local at the time. The food, appetizers, cocktail, family style meal, dessert table and wedding cake were all fresh, flavorful and really beautiful. We had people all night complimenting each course. The most memorable comment was that the food was great, and the service, but it was done in a way that didn't make things feel uptight. We cannot say enough good things about WhoaNelly in every department!

I hired WhoaNelly through a mutual friend to plan my wedding with about 10 weeks' notice. I was in Australia until ten days before the ceremony, and Beth and her colleagues organized the bulk of everything by email and Skype. In addition to the services Beth provided directly, she also found a fantastic photographer and brilliant officiant.

Aside from the extremely professional organization and logistics WhoaNelly delivered, two other aspects of our wedding stand out: the creative direction, and the food.

Beth from WhoaNelly listened very carefully to my vague ideas of the "look and feel" I had in mind and came up with something that suited our style and budget perfectly. It was hip without being trendy or easily dated. The venue, flowers, decorations, and table setting were exactly what I would have organized if I had the talent and know-how!

The catering was beyond memorable. All the food was fresh from local markets, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Beth and her staff provided top-quality table service, using Riedel glasses and swapping the champagne flutes three times in four hours. The wedding cake was devoured, something I had never experienced before.

I can't sing WhoaNelly's praises highly enough and consider myself lucky to have been their client, as these gals will be going places fast.
