I don't have enough words to describe the wonderful food we enjoyed at my daughter's wedding. We knew from our tasting the food was fabulous but would it be that way for so many people? The answer is YES! Regan and Aaron knocked it out of the park. From our initial contact, to our tasting and finally the wedding day Regan was a delight to work with. She was always quick to reply to our emails and no question seemed silly to her. Regan went above and beyond by helping our venue find a substitute wine when one we had chosen was not available. The venue was providing the liquor but Regan stepped in to make things right. If you want a stress free wedding day (or any special occasion) you need to have Culinaria cater. You won't regret it!
Culinaria Food and Wine was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. After looking at a lot of so-so local options we came across Culinaria on Google. Best find ever! Regan and Aaron were wonderful in every way. They made a mini meal for us and our parents before we hired them (which was delicious) and we were sold from the first bite! They took care of lots of details for us and really bent over backwards to help and answer all our questions. They were very flexible and totally willing to work within our budget. Regan is super prompt with communication and she was willing to meet with us at the space a few times before the wedding date. The food was incredible (and they let us have the leftovers!) and people couldn't stop raving about it during the wedding. I hope to spread the word, we loved them and they are a great local business!
Where to begin...we randomly stumbled across this review of Culinaria on marketplace and we are so happy we did! We met with many "corporate" wedding caterers and none of them matched up to the awesome duo of Aaron and Regan. First off, we felt like we could be friends with them outside of the business. They are such a nice, down to earth couple. It was such a fun tasting! They had so many great tasting and unique options. It was nothing like your regular old wedding food. Every time we needed to talk to them about any of our plans, they were readily available and we would end up just talking to them on the phone for at least 30 minutes. It was great. They are very competitive with pricing. PLUS, they really make the menu to your desires. So, we were already impressed with them before our wedding day...words cannot express how happy we are with how everything turned out on the actual day! Their service was amazing, their food was amazing, the whole experience was so awesome. We had so many guests ask us where our food came from. They loved the appetizers, the salad, the main dish, the servers. Regan even brought us drinks from the bar! You can truly see they love to do this in all of their work, which is amazing! Thank you, Culinaria, for a once in a lifetime experience!!
We couldn't find any reviews, and didn't know anyone who had used Culinaria when we chose them for our wedding caterer. After my wedding I HAD to write this review so others could know what a fantastic local catering duo we have right here in Lawrence!
We were simply charmed by Regan and Aaron's wonderful personalities and eagerness to work with us to make things perfect for our wedding. We went to two tastings and they customized the perfect menu and service to fit within our budget. We were absolutely blown away with the food on the big day- it was even better than the tasting! Guests were raving about the food; even a groomsmen who is a head chef of a restaurant commented saying it was 'by far the best food he'd ever had at a wedding' and that the pork was 'amazing'.The service was awesome, I barely knew they were there because things went so smoothly. It's been two months now since the wedding and so many people have asked me who my caterer was because they were totally impressed by the food. I can't recommend them highly enough! They were meant to be in this business and it shines through in their service and food.
