Were you granted the choice to hire an outside catering company? Look no further than these Queen City cooks.
Armin’s Catering & Events in Lake Norman understands that food and good times go hand-in-hand—that’s why they own the charming, nostalgic Beaver Dam in Davidson, a historic event site, in addition to the catering arm. Expect to be able to use Armin’s Catering at a plethora of the most desired wedding venues in Charlotte. This company has more than 21 years of experience in the wedding industry, and aims to be a one-stop shop for planning your wedding. Though, if you just want food, that’s a great start, too—vegetarian and gluten-free options are available upon request.
A posh, upscale wedding will be pleased with the food services from the super-successful Best Impressions Catering, which has been serving Charlotte since 1989. Now handling large-scale orders with ease in a 24,000 square-foot facility in the heart of South End, the company also owns Bryon’s South End (named after Best Impressions Caterers president, Dave Byron) in The Design Center Atrium, two event venues, and the caterer is the exclusive food, beverage, and equipment provider for Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. Fret not, though—Best Impressions also ranks as a preferred option for various of the Queen City’s top wedding venues.
With three popular menu categories titled Magnolia Bride, Traditional Bride, and Modern Trendy Bride, Delectables by Holly helps take the guesswork out of menu creation and table presentation. Consult with their in-house wedding planner to customize a menu that’s priced and prepared to your liking—your preferred palate and unique style will be executed with dishes that taste as good as they look.
As soon as you get the green light on your venue and “I Do” date, it’s time to call Occasions Catering to schedule a tasting. This Charlotte mainstay has been in business for 20 years, granting them one vote for experience. Their wedding menus range in price from “Southern Style Soiree” to “A Wonderful Feast,” and it seems you can’t make a wrong choice with any of them.
For ethnic farm-to-fork fare, this Charlotte-based catering company owned by Chef Camille Ellis whips up everything from Dim Sum to Mexican Fiestas using locally sourced and organic ingredients as often as possible. Though Passion Food specializes in ethnic cuisine, the company customizes each wedding menu depending on the couple’s favorite foods, cultural heritage, or nostalgic palate—they proudly accommodate “special diets” such as clean cuisine, vegan, keto, gluten-free, and so on—so, go ahead, have a keto-friendly wedding!
Modern and trend-forward, QC Catering doesn’t shy away from telling you why they cook—it’s you. Their ability to recognize that they are cooking for people, not events, sets this group apart, even though it may be a pretty big group. Settled in a 10,000-square-foot facility in uptown, QC Catering has only been in business since 2010, when it started with four employees. Now, more than 40 food-loving faces make up the ranks.
It’s all in the name—Something Classic provides the timeless, sophisticated style you’d expect in the South, and they even use “Earth-friendly practices.” Stunning plate displays are a given, especially considering Something Classic’s repertoire in the Charlotte area—the company has earned “Best Caterer” in both Charlotte magazine and Creative Loafing previously. Custom menus reign supreme with this catering company, so have your wants and needs ready when discussing details.
