My husband and I couldn't have been happier with how things went for our big day. All of our guests loved the food and couldn't stop raving about how delicious everything was. They especially loved the cocktail hour and couldn't believe how many hor d'oeuvres were served. Normally, everyone has to fight over getting enough to snack on during cocktail hour but all of our guests were able to have their fill. They also loved our signature drink! Overall, the whole reception was flawless. The timing of all of the different courses was so perfect. And the desserts and late night snacks were a huge hit as well. The service was impeccable and the staff did a fabulous job making sure our guests and specially my husband and myself were taken care of. Lynn Piette was the person who worked with us and she was amazing from day one. Answering all of our questions in a timely manner and really helping us make sure we had all of our details set. Worth every penny!
We had a great feeling about Classic Catering People from the moment we called to schedule a tasting for our wedding at the Peabody Library in Baltimore. The Peabody Library only allows three pre-approved caterers, and after poor interactions with the two other catering companies, we were really hoping that Classic Catering People would be a much better fit. After a year of planning and a wonderful wedding, we couldn't have made a better decision than to work with Lynn and Classic Catering People!We were assigned Lynn Piette as our point of contact and when we arrived at their offices, we were greeted warmly and noticed a chalkboard sign saying “Welcome Sarah and Carter”. These little touches really made a difference. We were shown to the staging room that was clean and already decorated. The room also had a nice window into the kitchen area so we could see the Chef and his staff working in action, which was a really cool touch! The server who assisted Lynn with the tasting was professional, kind and warm. Note: we were not charged for our tasting.Lynn was great about listening to our vision before the meeting, during the tasting, and throughout the entire process up to the day of the wedding. Her feedback was never judgmental or pushy, but simply offering her knowledge about the venue, industry, and what was possible within our budget. Her candid and honest feedback (especially her working within our budget) was sincerely appreciated. From early on in the meeting, we both knew that this was the only catering company we wanted to hire. Lynn integrated everything we wanted into our menu (even the non-alcoholic jelly-shots for dessert, which we were really keen on!). The Chef came out at one point to ask for our feedback and assure us that changes could be made to the menu selection, to the taste of the food (saltiness, spiciness, etc) and that he was very open to working with us to make sure everything was to our liking. We couldn’t have had a better experience.
