I loved working with Paige! The whole process was smooth. The food was great! I loved being able to design our themed cocktail hour food stations to honor our French, El Salvador, & Tanzanian connections. Dinner was delicious! The tableware and rentals looked great and the service was fantastic! I could not have been happier.

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Margaret at Purple Onion Catering for our recent wedding at The Winery at Bull Run. From the time we did our first tasting, to the day of our wedding Purple Onion was accommodating and amazing. Our guests raved about the food and service Margaret and her team provided to our guests. We went the bacon wrapped sweet potatoes, mini crab cakes, chicken and waffle cones, and french onion soup bowls for the appetizers and they were all equally amazing. We also chose to do our cutting cake and mini desserts through Purple Onion, and it was so convenient to have everything come together. The cake was fantastic (the dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling was TO DIE FOR) and the mini desserts fit in with our style so perfectly. Our wedding day was memorable because of the amazing service provided by the team at Purple Onion Catering and I would recommend them for any even in the Northern Virginia area!!!

My husband and I got married this past weekend and we really couldn't have done it without Paige's team at Purple Onion. Our wedding was on Sept. 2 in Washington, D.C., and Purple Onion took care of pretty much everything! I was out of the country during most of the wedding planning process, but Paige made it so easy for us. She was super responsive and accommodating to all our needs. We had cocktail hour appetizers, three signature cocktails, a bubbly bar as well as a family-style dinner and DIY doughnut bar for dessert. Everyone raved about the food and drinks, and Purple Onion was wonderful at making sure my husband and I had our plates and glasses filled. There was a forecast of rain on our wedding day and it poured all morning. We ended up moving the cocktail hour inside but we really wanted to keep the ceremony in the courtyard outdoors. The rain had mostly stopped by the afternoon and we decided to risk the rain and set up the ceremony outside about an hour before guests started arriving. Paige didn't skip a beat and her team was able to get everything ready with no problem! If you're looking for a DC-area caterer, please don't hesitate in booking Purple Onion. We loved every minute of working with them and we know they'll be just as great for other couples.

Working with Purple Onion Catering was such a wonderful experience for our wedding! Margaret took care of everything from A to Z. We met with her three times leading up to the wedding. The first time was for our tasting and all of the food was absolutely delicious! She offered us different ideas and suggestions based on our venue and the season of our wedding. The next time we met with her was for a meeting regarding decisions on details such as plate settings, silverware options, and linens. Margaret took her time with us and allowed us to explore all possible options. In the end, we loved our linens, plate settings (beautiful scalloped plates) and our silverware (gold plated!). The selections were bountiful and we had such a difficult but fun time choosing all of them. Finally, Margaret attended our walk through at the venue with the day of coordinator to make sure that everything was set in stone and ready for our big day. On our wedding day, Margaret helped everything run so smoothly and made sure all of our guests were beyond taken care of. Our guests raved about the food! The passed appetizers were spectacular, especially the mini crab cakes! Purple Onion Catering assisted with the set-up of our reception and it was absolutely beautiful. Our cake was perfection and the mini desserts were out of this world! We cannot say enough about Purple Onion Catering. They were absolutely amazing to work with and helped make our day absolutely perfect!

We had a great experience working with Purple Onion for our wedding last month at the Winery at Bull Run. Working with Margaret was a dream. She was so sweet and helpful throughout the entire process and has a great relationship with the folks at the winery since she works there often. I truly cannot believe the value at Purple Onion. The quality of the food, service, and equipment was amazing for the cost. I was pleasantly surprised by huge selection of gorgeous linens, china, and other equipment that were included in the base price. So many have people have told us that it was the most delicious food they've ever had at a wedding! I would absolutely recommend Purple Onion to anyone shopping for a caterer.

​Purple onion catering was a huge hit our brunch wedding. These guys just get it...are well seasoned and well respected in the industry. We started with a mimosa bar and hors d'oeuvres (bacon wrapped sweet potato = win) and followed up with a buffet brunch (who doesn't love a giant pile of perfectly cooked bacon), and the eggs-benedict station for the win. The servers were incredibly helpful and considerate, helped set up decor in the morning and even added little votive candles that weren't part of my proposal. Special shout out to Joanie Rylander, Who kept the entire process stress-free and went so far as to help with transport with her own personal car. Her advice and guidance allowed us to cut the fluff and focus our budget on the things that really made our wedding memorable. (Not to mention she found my phone with my vows written on it right before I was going to walk down the aisle = life saver). Hats off to Purple Onion!

Purple Onion did an amazing job catering my wedding, I would recommend them a thousand times over. We had the good fortune of working with Joanie who was extremely organized and responsive throughout the whole planning process. And the food was all delicious! All my guests were raving about it at our wedding. Plus, the servers, bartenders, and kitchen staff were all wonderful. As a bride I was running around taking pictures on a hot day, but the servers always made sure to hand me a glass of water or appetizer whenever I had a free moment. It was much appreciated, and the type of attention to detail that you will get with Purple Onion Catering.

I can't say enough good things about Purple Onion! My husband and I were fortunate enough to work with Paige Bryan who was our Event Designer and Coordinator. From the very beginning Paige made the entire process so easy, seamless, and fun! She was a dream to work with. Our wedding day I didn't have to worry about a thing. Paige took care of everything including bringing drinks and food from the cocktail hour back for the entire wedding party to enjoy before we began wedding party pictures. She specifically had asked what my husband and I wanted to drink and eat to have waiting for us when the ceremony was over. Our guests raved about the food we served everything from the hors d'oeuvres, to the salad, dinner as well as the cake. We decided to get our cake through Purple Onion and it was incredible! You also can't beat the price. I can't stress enough how wonderful working with Purple Onion especially Paige was. Truly an incredible and fun experience!
