Wedding Catering in 22407

Your wedding day should be as special as you are to your family and friends. Celebrate the day with a great location and food that mirrors your taste. We can provide you with sample menus where you choose what you would like to delight your guests. We can also assist you in the design of your own menu. Have an item you love to eat. Incorporate it into your menu. Have a family recipe that everyone enjoys. Executive Chef Shane Sheaffer can prepare the recipe to bring back those wonderful memories and create new deliciously, delightful ones.

We have sample hors d’eurve menu that shows the variety and creativity that only Chef Shane and his staff can provide. We also have sample buffet and plated dinner menus.

Tastings are strongly encouraged. It is a wonderful moment when you decide on a menu but how will it taste? We provide a tasting of your proposed menu or if you need a tasting to build a menu, we can do that as well. The tasting is incorporated to the cost of your event. Now you have a menu you can present to your guests with delicious confidence.

We can also provide all tableware, linen, bar, and so on. You can discuss these and other options with our experienced event coordinators. They can assist you in creating an event to remember.

We can incorporate all of the weddings events from the engagement party, bridal shower, bachelor/bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, day of breakfast/light lunch, and the reception. We have found that using the same caterer can decrease the stress of their event.

Chef Shane and the entire Caroline Street Catering was absolutely amazing! They were always so incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the whole process and really worked with us to create a menu that was perfect for us/our special day. We have heard SO MANY responses from guests saying that the food was incredible - and we couldn't agree more!!! Every single dish we had was so delicious and perfectly prepared on our day (we had 4 or so cocktail hour hour devours and a full buffet for dinner). We really, really appreciated just how easy Caroline Street was to work with and how Chef Shane truly listened to everything we voiced regarding our menu and really went the extra mile to personalize it just for us. I wish I could eat their food every single day!!! I could not recommend them more - they are an absolute must as a caterer for your wedding!

Chef Shane and his crew are absolutely phenomenal - I'm not even sure if I can put into words how great he is, in fact I would use him for every event I ever have catered. I do management consulting for a living and know outstanding (above 5.0) customer service when I see it!!! We used Caroline Street for rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception. Shane is the most caring person and wants to help ensure the day runs smoothly - from all small to big details (color schemes, decor for venue, etc.), he makes concrete recommendations based on your style and preferences. Shane came up to see us at the wedding and we bombarded him with hugs. As a bride, the planning and coordination of small details can be very overwhelming - fear not, Shane helps you think through literally everything (more than once also!!!). During the wedding the staff was so amazingly sweet and accommodating - really made us feel beyond special on our big day. I would recommend Caroline Street Catering to anyone out there who wants to have amazing food, impeccable quality service, and wants someone to treat you like family while working with you!!!! WE heart you Shane and crew!!!! See you for whatever our next big event is!! Kathy and Jack

Shane and his crew were wonderful. The food was delicious and exactly what we wanted. It was food everyone could enjoy. The servers were attentive and made sure everyone was taken care of. We did our toast (with bourbon because that's how we roll) and Shane's crew made sure the right people had apple juice instead of Jefferson Reserved. But it was Shane's personal touch that makes Caroline Street so perfect. My husband and I had just finished the photo session and were sitting outside, enjoying the brief respite before our big entrance. The planner asked if we'd like a snack. I said, "yes! We should get to enjoy the apps too!". Two minutes later, Shane himself comes out with a platter of his fabulous appetizers. We go, "YES!". Amazing. It's that personal touch that sets Shane and Caroline Street Cafe & Catering above the rest.

WOW, I cannot say enough amazing things about Chef Shane and his team at Caroline Street Catering! We asked a lot of them and we received everything we wanted and more. We asked Chef Shane to create a menu of Korean food based on recipes and tasting tweaks while also incorporating some of his creative additions and a small portion of outside food. The food exceeded our expectations and our guests would not stop raving about the meal! We were told by multiple people that our wedding food was the best they have had at a wedding. On top of that, the service on the day of was exceptional. My husband and I kept hearing that we would not eat much on our wedding day so we should try to fit some snacks in. Let me tell you, this was not the case. A couple servers kept checking on us specifically to make sure we were fed and got to taste everything. We were brought cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres while we were taking photos and served a huge dish during dinner. Guests commented on the how lovely the servers and bartenders were and we were so pleased to hear that the excellent service was not just for us. Chef Shane was so easy to work with and we could trust that he would deliver every step of the way. We are so happy with our decision to hire Caroline Street Catering and I have full confidence they would make any other couple happy as can be on their wedding day!!!

CHEF SHANE IS DA BOMB!!!!!!! Lol. That being said, the man knows how to cook up a storm. He was very flexible and accommodating in every sense of the word. He made simple foods in the most delicious manner. All of the guests were complimenting the food. We had bang bang shrimp, crab cakes, and bruschetta for appetizers. He provided the bartenders and waiters for the event. He was very organized in communicating with my venue on last minute details. I really have no complaints about him. He even waived our cake cutting and tasting fees. There was a TON of food at the tasting. Compared to other caterers, he was very affordable. He's super flexible in what he can make for the event. I noticed he even bought herbs from local growers. Great presentation, too. I strongly recommend him for any event!! Rock on Chef Shane!

Bottom line up front: Hands down the best customer service! From our first tasting, we knew that Caroline Street Catering was the right caterer for our wedding on April 8, 2017. The food was amazing of course but just as great was the fact that Chef Shane is so personable and so honest and genuine in his desire to exceed your expectations for your event. We had a very long guest list and really wanted to do a seated dinner at the Silk Mill (which does not have a kitchen). He and his wonderful staff executed the dinner perfectly and in record time. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food (bang bang shrimp!) and the overall service from the food preparation, to the servers, to the bartenders. Chef Shane really listened to us and never tried to nudge us in a different direction. He gave us helpful recommendations and we trusted his professional experience and are so glad that we did. That's why he is in the business; he knows what he is doing! Chef Shane was also an excellent communicator, I must have sent him a dozen requests for different quotes and he addressed every single one so quickly. To all brides and grooms (and anyone having an event) out there, check out Caroline Street Catering. They provide delicious food and exceptional service at the most fair and reasonable price and they are just a pleasure to work with. The whole wedding planning process is just remarkably easier when you have such personable and genuine people on your side like Chef Shane.

Chef Shane was an absolute DELIGHT!!! He is so kind and so great to work with. We met him for the first time at our tasting. We had the joy of eating first and trying all the samples he prepared for us. Once we were done we got to meet Chef Shane and he is just so nice and easy to talk too. He wants your day to be just as great as you do, so he pays full attention and makes sure that you get what you want. He was very responsive with emails and phone calls. His staff was wonderful! We had them caterer our rehearsal dinner and our wedding and both nights everyone was hard working, kind, and very responsive. I would highly recommend chef Shane and his crew. Everyone at our wedding complimented the food and staff for both nights and it was just a great feeling to know we picked the right caterer! Choose Caroline Catering and I promise you will NOT be disappointed!!! :)

Caroline Street and Chef Shane are great! We hired them for our wedding, and had stationed and passed hors d'oeuvres, buffet-style dinner, and open bar with limited alcohol options (we provided the alcohol, they served it). Prior to us choosing Caroline Street or doing a tasting, we were provided with complimentary tickets to a Valentine's meal and wine pairing group dinner, which was fantastic and worth about $60 a ticket (so they initially got points there). All of their food was fantastic, we were able to modify what we wanted, and had a wide selection of apps and dinner options to choose from that fit in our budget, as well as plate and glassware choices. They also had a good amount of items included and didn't charge for every single thing like another caterer we looked at. Their staff was always quick to respond to emails and calls also and answered any questions we had. Definitely recommend Caroline Street.

Chef Shane and everyone at Caroline street are absolutely fantastic!!!! He was able to accommodate all of the food allergies that the guests had. They were so lovely to work with and the food was so delicious! We had stationary and passed appetizers and a buffet with family style salads at each table! They also made sure to bring some appetizers out to the bridal party as we were doing our photos! Such a lovely group and so talented! Definitely book them for your next event!!

Shane and his team are so easy to work with. I originally found and reached out to Caroline Street as he was on my venue's preferred vendor sheet. I have dealt with quite a few caterers professionally in DC planning galas and graduation events. However, none are as responsive, flexible, and accommodating as Shane. Not only that, but you feel as if you are working with a small family business, yet he delivers the best food. Another added bonus was our tasting for 4 people was free before we even committed to him, which is almost unheard of these days. Our wedding guests raved about the food and service provided. If we ever have the need for catering again, I will absolutely be using Caroline Street.

We were married yesterday and Caroline Street Catering made our wedding effortless. Chef Shane and Anthony were exceptional from the moment we contacted then. Our tasting was quickly scheduled when we contacted them and I can tell you that the food was as good at the wedding as it was at the tasting. We had numerous people tell us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. I am still in love with the BBQ pork cake and bang bang shrimp appetizers and the tomato bacon jam chicken, but all the food was raved about. But more than that, Anthony and Chef Shane went out of their way not only to work with our budget but to make sure they were doing whatever they could to make our lives easier. Anthony even called me a few days prior to the wedding to ask if there was anything else they could do. We had a full open bar and dessert bar and both were exceptional. No hidden fees or issues and their staff helped clean up the entire event. They deliver on all of their promises. Seriously can not thank them enough. Do not hesitate to call them.

Want to thank you for the beautiful review. So glad you were so happy with the menu and the service. Caroline Street Catering
