  • Working with Big Tree was an absolute dream! We wanted as close to a farm-to-table, locavore experience as possible for our wedding, and Big Tree was able to provide this and so much more. They were so lovely to work with from the very beginning, and made us feel at ease and in good hands throughout the process. They were extremely personable, fun to work with, as well as professional. We felt so connected to their team by the end of the process! They went above and beyond to tailor their catering to our vision and to our dietary restriction needs. We wanted food to be a central component of our celebration, and it totally was. Everything was absolute perfection! On top of all of that, they were amazing about coordinating beverages, including a list of natural wines we wanted to include. All around just an incredible experience and we, and our guests, are still talking about the food 6 months later.
