  • First things first, the food at our wedding by Culinary Concepts was so amazing that we heard A LOT of compliments from our guests, saying they wouldn’t normally expect too much from wedding food, but it surprised them that everything tastes so fantastic! Leo and I were sure that Culinary Concepts is THE ONE for our wedding when we first had a call with Katie. She asked great questions and listened to what we had envisioned. We wanted to incorporate the cuisines from places that we’ve traveled to into our catering experience. Katie and her team came up with brilliant ideas and helped us realize our vision, and they executed it perfectly. Katie and Anita were really friendly and easy to work with. They are so organized and detail-oriented that they helped me make sure I am not missing anything for our wedding. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the quality of service and the food they provided!
