Alex's Catering
( 4.6 / 5.0 )
We received bids from a couple of different caterers and Alex’s hit it out of the park. The bid was a lovely story – it described the various components of the wedding and really made you imagine it (vs other caterers that just give you an invoice). When we went to the tasting, the food and presentation completely lived up to our expectations.
The day of, the food was just as good! The heirloom tomato bar and BBQ Pork Crisps were huge hits. In fact, I would love another pork crisp right now ☺
Alex’s also did a great job of rolling with the punches. We had a couple of no-shows, so we asked the extra food be delivered to one of our louder and hungrier guests. They didn’t even ask questions – they just did it.
Their services are more expensive than some of the competition – but you get what you pay for.

The best decision we made in planning our wedding was working with Jackie Jones Wilson. We clicked with her right away and throughout the process, she continued to prove that our decision was a good one. Not only did she help us narrow down the vendors, she guided us through the entire process. I knew that I could focus on enjoying the process because she wasn’t letting anything fall through the cracks.
We did a walkthrough at the venue months prior to the event and she was a complete professional. She thought of things that we would have never considered and really made a difference to the event. She was able to determine what was important to us and handled any little issues that arose without having to bother us. It was fantastic.
Having Jackie manage the set up of the rentals and the vendors was worth its weight in gold. We were able to focus on our guests and enjoy time with them. The day of ran so smoothly and on time, thanks to Jackie.
Our wedding was a total dream and I would hire Jackie again in a heartbeat, it was money very well spent.

After spending months trolling the internet (weddingpaperdivas.com, etc) for wedding invitations, I couldn’t find anything that fit my needs. In addition to not loving the pre-made designs, I needed a custom size. Thankfully, I found Larissa at Papercake!
Larissa met with my fiancé and I to discuss what we were looking for and the colors we needed. She completely nailed it. We got invitations, reply cards, enclosure cards, and maps. We later had her create programs, menus, and table name signs. Larissa was able to create completely custom invitations at a reasonable price. So many of the custom designers only do letterpress. As beautiful as that is – that wasn’t how I wanted to spend my money.
I am so happy I found Papercake and will definitely use her for all future invitation/printing needs.

We knew pretty much right away that we wanted to work with Condra and Patisserie Angelica. She is a total character, which I love, and her cakes taste AMAZING. I tasted other high-end cakes in the area and they were too sweet. Condra’s flavors are interesting and take advantage of great ingredients.
We decided to do a non-traditional wedding cake and it was fun to work with Condra. She understood what we were looking for and didn’t think we were crazy to pick a stack of books as our cake (it fit the theme of our wedding). In fact, she completely ran with it. At the 11th hour, we asked her to add even more to our cake. Even though she had 9 other cakes that day, she completely delivered. Our cake was exactly what we were looking for and we could not have been happier.
All of our guest marveled at the cake – both how it looked and how it tasted. Working with Patisserie Angelica was an excellent decision and I will definitely be ordering more cakes from them in the future.

Seriously, still one of my favorite cakes. People can't believe the passports are sugar as well. Thanks so much!
