My (now husband) and I decided to have an outdoor wedding with only 5 weeks to plan. With our parents being elderly we had to keep everything as (covid safe) as possible. Kim Livesey helped me plan the perfect 5 course box lunch, with a personalized cooler for each guest to take home.

 

The food was exceptional! The team at Calla made my wedding day planning so much easier! They answered emails, phone calls promptly, and wrote out a timeline for me to keep things rolling smoothly! Every guest LOVED the food, and the way it was presented! I highly recommend Calla Catering!
