  • Our experience was absolutely perfect! We signed a contract with APC pre-COVID and ultimately decided to downsize our wedding and move it from Southern Maryland to Northern Virginia. The change was seamless and APC was incredibly accommodating. In fact, we enjoyed working with them so much that we decided to cancel our original Rehearsal Dinner plans and had them cater our rehearsal instead of going out to a restaurant. Stacy Beales, our event designer, was incredible to work with from start to finish. She was so responsive and on top of every detail. We rented a lot of specialty rentals (tables, chairs, glassware, etc.) and she coordinated every detail for us flawlessly. The on site catering captain, Lisa, was a delight and the catering staff and bartenders were incredible. They were so kind and left our venue (my parent's house) in perfect condition at the end of each night. As for the food - it was DELICIOUS! The filet was definitely the most popular choice and everyone raved about ... Read more

  • Due to Covid-19 our son’s wedding plans changed from 150 people at a large venue in VA Beach to 25 guests in our back yard in Maryland. We had 2 ½ weeks to plan the wedding. We found Absolutely Perfect Catering on-line. We were a bit nervous using a caterer that we did not know however they truly lived up to their name. Everything went perfectly. The team was amazing. We could not have asked for a better group of professional, kind, and attentive individuals. Everyone raved about the food. The chef Stanley did an awesome job. It was so delicious. The bartender, Mike, was right on top of it with ensuring the bride and groom had water to hydrate and a drink in hand. He was very quick with serving the drinks, champagne and even right on queue with the shots that were taken during the ceremony. The servers, Patty and Kenny, were perfect. They came around multiple times to make sure everyone was offered appetizers. Dinner was served as soon as the toasts ended, and they check... Read more

  • Absolutely was a preferred caterer of our venues and I am so happy they were! Lori was very responsive and they were able to accommodate some customize menu requests and pricing was very reasonable compared to other caterers I spoke with. They day of the servers were wonderful - attentive and kind, they checked in with me regularly and were happy to help with anything we asked. The food was DELICIOUS! We never got to sample anything prior to the wedding as we live states away so I was a tad nervous about how everything would taste but I need not have worried. The hors d'oeuvres were delicious - guests especially loved the mini cheeseburgers, candied bacon and mini grilled cheese. They also raved about the salad, mac and cheese, pork and chicken/waffles we had for dinner. We also had a hot chocolate bar with dessert that was such a fun touch that many guests enjoyed. Overall it was a wonderful experience working with them and I would highly recommend.

  • Wow, I can't thank APC enough! During COVID, with a month before our wedding (which was already down from 120 to 45 people!) our caterer cancelled on us!! I sent a few panicked messages on Wedding Wire and the next day Stacy from APC called me. She was truly upset our caterer had canceled, and wanted to help us. We quickly began talking specifics and arranged to come get a tasting. The chef was great, the food was delicious, we ended up getting passed apps and signature drinks, along with coffee and assorted desserts! In short, we got everything we could have dreamed of, all because Stacy called me as soon as she saw my message. She even came to the wedding to say congrats and make sure everything was going well. the staff was great, and no matter where we roamed, a server was always there to meet us with food or drinks. Again, all I can say is this company is Absolutely Perfect. I wish I could get married and hire them again! (PS- our guests LOVED the salmon!) Thank you SO MUCH, Stacy... Read more

  • From the moment I spoke with Lori in sales, I knew we were in good hands. I'd never had an event catered before and was a bit nervous about how it all would go. Lori was such an expert and handled all of my concerns. From menu choices, tent and linen rental and staff, everything was such a breeze. On the day of our dinner, the staff arrived early and immediately started prepping food and setting up the bar. Everyone was so accommodating. Dinner and bar service was wonderful. Thank you so much Brian, Amber and Peter for making our little wedding dinner absolutely perfect! We'll be calling you again in the future!!!

  • Everything from planning leading up to execution was done flawlessly. One stop shop for catering and rentals which was perfect for our backyard wedding. The food displays were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Not your typical metal sternos for the buffet, food was displayed on warmed stones and just absolutely beautiful, not to mention delicious! All guests raved about how delicious the food was. Highly recommend.

  • Throughout 2019 and early 2020 we worked closely with Absolutely Perfect Catering to plan our wedding. We had read great reviews of Absolutely Perfect and were not disappointed in any way once we started working with them. Sarah and her team were enthusiastic, fun and extremely proactive in helping us plan our day. Her attention to detail put us at ease that our wedding would happen smoothly and her active suggestions were greatly appreciated as we reviewed plans and selected alternatives. The team worked with us to find creative ways to make our day unique while remaining within our planned budget. We especially enjoyed the food tasting meeting when Absolutely Perfect shared their wide range of delicious offerings. Unfortunately with the COVID situation, we were unable to have the large wedding that we had planned. We were crushed that we were not able to ultimately have Absolutely Perfect deliver the event that we had planned for so long. In spite of the disappointment of... Read more

  • While looking for a wedding caterer in the beginning stages of our planning (pre-covid), I found APC (Absolutely Perfect Catering) to be the best price and they asked all the right questions from the first phone call. Being a catering manager myself in my career, I knew they were experienced simply after 1 phone call. I am so glad I hired them. I worked with Stacy the entire time and she was able to help and guide us through the whole process!! During our planing, we would've had our menu tasting, but Covid happened. APC came through and was able to offer a delivery-tasting. They delivered the food pre-cooked and with heating instructions. Even after reheating our menu selections, we were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food. Throughout the entire planning process, Stacy with APC was always extremely responsive and informative with details. They were also accommodating when we had a big guest drop because of Covid. APC worked with us and our budget and all... Read more

  • Absolutely Perfect Catering helped make our wedding the best day of our lives!! Not only was the food delicious, the decor they brought took our venue to the next level! APC made the entire wedding planning process smooth and then executed our plans perfectly the day of the wedding. My husband and I ABSOLUTELY Loved the food!! The old bay mashed potatoes were one of the best things we've ever had (the whole crowd agreed)!! We also appreciated the extra touches that APC added like making sure we got a full plate of Hors d'oeuvres right when we entered the reception, as well as bringing them to the wedding party while taking pictures!! I also went through the whole night with a fresh drink in my hand! APC is so friendly and we are so happy we had them as our Caterer/Vendor~

  • Absolutely Perfect Catering was just that: absolutely perfect. Our wedding had to be completely re-planned after our original venue canceled 3 weeks before the date, but APC made that transition seamless. Stacy was so helpful in making sure we didn't forget anything and she was SO fast at responding. APC goes above and beyond as a caterer and works out your entire timeline with you, all of the details surrounding floor plan and decorations, and they even provided decorative touches to their buffet display. I just can't say enough about how well they pulled off catering our wedding. And with only a few weeks to prepare! The food and execution of the service was impeccable- everyone complimented us on how great everything tasted and how friendly the staff were. We couldn't have kept our original wedding date without their help and for that we're very grateful.

  • I worked with Sarah Thompson and Kelsey Bowe and they both were INCREDIBLE to work with. I was planning a wedding in Baltimore from Wilmington, DE. From start to finish, they were incredibly responsive via email and never once did they forget to respond to any question/concern I had. We only met in person 2x - once for the tasting meeting and again for a planning meeting to decide final menu & table seatings. And 2 meetings was all they needed. They are incredibly organized and make absolutely sure that no detail is forgotten - they help with floor plans and have this amazing, thorough planning worksheet to keep everything on track. From food (both cocktail and reception) to decor to signature drink (harvest sangria) to dessert (gelato bar w/ 3 flavors, cutting cake, groom's cake designed as a basketball going into a hoop with scoreboard, and sheet cake), they NAILED IT. Our guests loved the food and the desserts. Our favorite cocktail apps were the tomato and grilled cheese shooter, c... Read more

  • Surprisingly we did not meet with multiple caterers because after we walked out of Absolutely Perfect Catering's office we were in awe. We knew right then that we wanted to use them because of not only delicious food, but also their attention to detail. They were nothing short of amazing throughout our entire process. Sarah and Kelsey took so many detailed notes about how we wanted our day to go and every single little detail. They were amazing and responsive all the way through the day AFTER the wedding. Their staff was flawless and put together our vision so easily. The day itself was amazing and the food was OUTSTANDING. We got so many compliments on the food choices as well as the staff running the wedding. I would highly recommend Absolutely Perfect Catering to ANYONE. Thanks again APC!!!!!!!

  • We had a multi cultural wedding and the bride and groom were very specific in details and food. APC helped us in everyway possible. The staff could not have done anymore to please our guests and bridal party. We had no concerns going into the day that APC would have any issues at all. Thank you for a beautiful day! I highly recommend them! Thank you Kelsey and Sarah!!

  • Absolutely Perfect Catering just catered my wedding on Saturday, Feb 29, 2020. Sarah and Kelsey were so easy to work with, they assured and guided me every step of the way! Their experience in catering is obvious from their suggestions, way of working, and overall service. I really also appreciated their flexibility in doing their best to meet my requests as well as helping me plan from afar (I live in London!). They kept to the timeline, were attentive to guests and did an absolutely fabulous job. We had tray passed hors d'oeuvres, signature drinks, buffet, wine service, and coffee station - APC also provided my rentals. I provided the alcohol and dessert myself! My guests are still RAVING about the food! Highly recommend!
