Quantcast

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!

Between Larry Frank and Terri Young, we always knew it was going to turn out great and it was better than that. They dealt with a difficult, (non-standard) location that had shifting requirements and did it with a smile and no complaining. We had "A Taste of Classic" and the food was delectable, the service was always where we needed them and they anticipated needs we didn't know of. It was a let-down when the reception was over because everything had come off so well and beautifully. We cannot thank them enough!

We used The Classic Catering People for our wedding and could not have been happier with our choice. From our initial contact with them up until the lights came on at the end of the night of our wedding, Classic was incredible. We worked with Nicole Van Natta and found her to be superlative in every sense. Nicole and Classic went above and beyond our expectations.

From our initial consultation, Nicole helped us tailor a menu with delicious options based on our unique tastes and utilizing fresh, seasonal, specialties. She was patient and helpful as we selected choices to taste, and then provided us with a truly memorable tasting at Classic's facilities in Maryland. We were shocked at how professional and detail oriented the tasting went, and it was probably the highlight of our planning process.

Leading up to the wedding, Nicole stayed with us as we made last minute changes. In doing so, she was always quick to respond and more than accommodating. She even helped us with multiple design choices.

When it finally came to the day of, Nicole was there early to help us set up for the reception while we had our ceremony off site. Throughout the wedding, Nicole and her staff attended to our every need. During the wedding and afterwards, our guests raved about the food and beverage selections. Nicole and Classic were more than just a caterer, they were an integral part of planning and executing our dream wedding. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, I should add that we were incredibly difficult clients. We were slow to respond, hard to get a hold of, and terminally indecisive. Nicole and Classic kept us on track, held our hands, and did it all with the utmost courtesy and professionalism.

We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering. Classic is absolutely top-notch.

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.
