  • We had only heard good things about Blue Elephant from the get go. They were responsive from the start, accommodating, and helped work with us on every single detail. The pre-wedding process was of course fun with lots of things to do but, they helped us navigate the planning, timeline, and event to perfection. When our day came, there was no stress. Everything had been worked out, the whole team was amazingly professional (Dominique killed it as our coordinator), food was fantastic (even some guests who are chefs themselves sang their praises), and everyone had an amazing time. Could not have had such an amazing day without them. Thankful to have had such a great coordinator bring our vision to life.

  • We worked with Reuben as our catering coordinator and our day-of coordinator, and we can’t recommend him highly enough! We did the bulk of the planning ourselves, and we felt so lucky to have Reuben as a reference and sounding board. He helped guide us through the process and was happy to offer help. He is unshakably calm, which was totally key in helping us relax throughout planning and in the days before the wedding. He is so experienced and took the time to get to know us, which meant that he helped us focus on what was important for our day. He has an incredible rolodex of other professionals in the area - most of our vendors were recommendations from him, and we loved working with every single one. We told him we wanted as little waste as possible, and he worked hard to supply sustainable solutions for the catering and bar. And, most importantly, our guests love the food! He worked with us to make our menu perfect for our guests, and was super flexible, open, and knowledgeabl... Read more

  • Blue Elephant catered our wedding at the Portland Masonic, and to a large extent acted as the wedding coordinator. The food was excellent and they were easy to work with throughout the planning process. Most importantly, the day of the event, when problems arose with other vendors, these guys stepped in and went above and beyond to make problems go away. These guys are pros and the type of people you want running the show during an important event. Thanks so much!

  • Fausto and his team at Blue Elephant were amazing! They pulled off three flawless events over four days for our wedding (rehearsal dinner, reception, and brunch). He has a great team that has worked with him for years and everyone was very nice and professional. They take the extra steps to make sure that everything is just right and were very organized in their approach to the day – showing up early in the day and getting everything ready well in advance. They also did a great job of cleaning up their space and leaving everything just as they found it. Most importantly, the food was delicious. Our rehearsal dinner was more traditional food, but for our wedding we decided to go with a Latin menu. They can do it all and everyone commented that they really enjoyed the food. The dinner was also executed flawlessly (for over 180 people) and they made sure that everyone got fed in a timely manner. Fausto was also fantastic to work with as we were planning our wedding. He m... Read more

  • Blue Elephant was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for our wedding. They were professional, helpful, easy to talk to and worked above and beyond to making our vision come true. Reuben was absolute joy to work with and I couldn't imagine my wedding without them. You would never regret you decision by choosing them and If I had to do it all over again I would call them again right away.

  • Rueben and Dominique were amazing through the entire 7-month process of planning our wedding. Right from the first meeting, we could see how knowledgeable they are and felt extremely comfortable in trusting them to handle an event that meant so much to us. In fact, Rueben’s visualization of how our wedding could be laid out was a huge factor in choosing the venue. Rueben was always available for a quick call, text, or email as questions arose. Leading up to the week of the big day, Dominique ensured all vendors were on schedule with their pick-ups, delivery, set up, etc. Everything was set up exactly as we wanted it and part of this was due to their amazing floor plan website where we could literally see our wedding plan come alive. To walk in the day of and see it exactly how we pictured was amazing. We felt so comfortable with Rueben, Dominique and everyone on their team. Thank you so much for making our wedding day an event we will never forget.

  • Blue Elephant truly sets the bar for professionalism and dedication in catering. I used this company for my September 8th wedding at Shady Lane farm in New Gloucester. Throughout the entire planning process Fausto and his team were attentive, responsive, and accommodating. We worked within my budget and customized a buffet menu that worked for my venue and guests. I was honestly completely pleased with Blue Elephant already going into the week of my wedding- but when it came to crunch time- they exceeded any expectation and truly made my wedding perfect. I ran into some issues with rentals and with one email to Fausto he had the problem solved- within 10 mins (not even enough time for me to have a melt down). The team was absolutely meticulous with set up and worked so well together you could barely tell they were there. During the event Fausto and his team were incredible. They were three steps ahead of the game in every aspect, and ran the show flawlessly. Someone followed my wedding... Read more

  • There is no way I could’ve pulled off the wedding of my dreams without Fausto and his team at Blue Elephant! My wedding was 16 days ago and I am still blown away with how seamless the day was. My expectations were far surpassed and I couldn’t have been more happy with how everything looked and especially the service! Fausto played a major part in helping me with the wedding process. He made me feel so comfortable with my food choices as well as the décor selections in making sure everything would look to what I had envisioned. He absolutely nailed it and I couldn’t be more appreciative! I was worried about having to set up everything in the venue the morning of because the venue was a blank canvas so I had several different vendors I was working with which made me even more worried about everything arriving to the venue in time, but Fausto completely took charge and was in contact with each of the vendors and his team set up everything so I didn’t have to do a thing but ...

  • I interviewed many vendors for my daughters wedding. In the end I selected Blue Elephant and was so happy I did. The entire team was very knowledgeable, responsive, and more importantly just nice people who really seemed to enjoy what they do - making one day special for the bride and groom! As a family, this was our first wedding and as the mother of the bride, I could not have done this without the continued support from Reuben and his entire team. Having said that, I'm a foodie and they are a caterer, the food was incredible! I had people coming up to me all during the wedding, "the food is do delicious and at a wedding...no one expects really great food at a wedding!" Value...their price point was spot on. You give them a budget, they will work with that budget. They have wonderful ideas on how to create very interesting menus for all budget, I was quite impressed. I have one more daughter and will be calling Reuben (hopefully in a few years) to help me! If your looking ... Read more

  • My husband and I loved working with Fausto. He had previously catered my sister-in-law's wedding and his food came highly recommended. We decided to also have him as our wedding planner and we are so glad we did. Planning a wedding from across the country was stressful, especially with 9 vendors to coordinate. We were not sure how it would all come together on the day-of but thanks to the Magic of Fausto, everything was better than we could have hoped. He made great recommendations on rentals that added lovely finishing touches to our venue. When one of our vendors dropped the ball, he stepped in to make sure everything would be perfect. When in rained up till the last minute before our ceremony, we convinced us to do the wedding outside anyways - which was absolutely the right call. His team kept everything running on time while being unfailingly polite. We are so glad we had him on our side on the big day. Great job, Fausto & team!

  • Choosing to use Reuben and his Blue Elephant team was the best decision my husband and I made in regards to our wedding planning! Reuben went above and beyond our expectations and made our wedding day 100% stress free. Reuben was so accommodating with dietary allergies for our guests and made our entire plated dinner meal gluten and dairy free. Reuben coordinated with all of our other vendors to ensure our wedding day turned out perfect. I would recommend Blue Elephant to all my family and friends!

  • When we started to look at venues for our wedding reception, almost every place we went to seemed to recommend Blue Elephant. When we finally chose our venue, we hired Blue Elephant immediately and we are so glad we did! Planning our wedding from Florida wasn’t easy, but Fausto was highly responsive and was always so accommodating to meet with us whenever we came to Maine. So many people commented on the delicious food for cocktail hour and dinner. Fausto is so knowledgeable and recommended all of the best vendors! Our day was perfect thanks to Fausto and his team.

  • We chose Blue Elephant Catering for our wedding and it was the perfect choice! Not only was the food incredibly delicious (our guests are still talking about it), but the planning process with Reuben from the initial meeting to the wedding day was more than we could have ever asked for. Reuben’s attention to detail and organization over the wedding weekend (rehearsal dinner and wedding) was exactly what we needed. Everything went off without a hitch! I completely trusted him and his team to coordinate the day and they absolutely crushed it. From setting up the venue, owning the itinerary/schedule, to the impeccable food and service - they made our wedding day picture perfect. It was so great not having any worries throughout the weekend because of Blue Elephant. Highly recommend.

  • We hired Blue Elephant after realizing that our venue's exclusive caterer did not offer plated meals. In order to use them, we had to pay to buy out the kitchen, so it was important to me that we felt it was worth that extra expense. The food was delicious, and there were generous portions, especially during cocktail hour. We ended up with way more (great) food than what would have been included with the first caterer, and for a price that more than made up for the buy-out fee. We saved thousands of dollars! Based on the per-person cost in our original quote, the final tab was actually cheaper than we had priced out once we had our final guest count. I'm still in disbelief. Reuben was our primary contact, and he was so helpful and friendly throughout the process. Occasionally communication was a little slow, but once we got closer to our date, we were in constant contact. Reuben was flexible and helped us make some last minute changes and adjustments, and gave us really helpful advi... Read more
