What could be more exciting then planning your wedding! This is most couples first time to show off their style to family and friends. The amount of options seem endless, but here are a few thoughts we can share based on years of experience catering and lots and lots of weddings…

  • Decide what really matters about the day to you as a couple.
  • Hiring experienced vendors that cater, photograph, coordinate, etc. for a living is the best piece of mind for all involved. Team work is what makes it happen.
  • Consider the environment of your venue when making choices.  Many venues are very rustic, offering no cooking equipment and often no running water. Some venues may require extra staffing to accomodate for staging areas being far away from the reception area.


Pricing for catering has many variables and in order to provide a more accurate quote it is often necessary to ask a few questions to determine exactly what your needs are.

Our quotes are divided by food and beverage, event service,  and rentals. We offer buffet style, family style and plated service. Appetizers can be served stationed or passed at no additional cost.

On average a minimum guest counts of 100 for buffet style service with a meal including 1 appetizer, 1 entree, 1 salad, 1 side and your choice of bread the price per guest is $40 pp. Guest count under 100 will be quoted.  Your menu is customized to your dietary concerns, tastes, seasonal ingredients, venue and other considerations. Additional appetizers, sides, salads and desserts can be added for a additional cost. We work with you to create a meal that you will be proud to serve your friends and family.

Event service is based on a number of things as well. We arrive 2 hours prior to your appetizer being served, allowing us time to set up as well as cook on site in our mobile commercial kitchen. Service costs are estimated in advance based on guest arrival time, ceremony time etc. Service is billed at $35 per hour per staff person.

Rentals of china, linens and tableware can be facilitated by Busy Bee at no additional charge for off-site catering and are included in the rental fee at Alpine Events.
