  • Purple Onion catered our daughter’s wedding in August. People raved over the meal and how amazing it was! They are very professional and service was impeccable. Margaret helped us design the perfect menu! She was patient during the pandemic as we had to lower our guest count to provide social distancing. The wedding industry has had a lot to deal with, as well as, the parents putting in weddings. Margaret was awesome and we highly recommend you use their catering service!
