  • Our venue had preferred caterers we had to choose from and we’re glad we chose Spotlight. Not only was the food delicious (people are still raving about how great it was a month later), but it was by a long-shot the best value out there! We were worried we wouldn’t be able to get everything we wanted on our budget, but Spotlight delivered all of it and more! We had 3 passed appetizers for cocktail hour, a buffet dinner with 2 main entrees and sides, a champagne toast, a full open bar for 5 hours and late night snacks for 123 people for less than $9k and that was after the additional fees and tips! The linens, cake cutting and silverware/glassware were complimentary with our package which was a huge bonus! Leslie was amazing and so patient throughout the planning process - You won’t go wrong with Spotlight catering!

  • 5 months later people are still complimenting us on how delicious the food was at our wedding. Spotlight Catering executed our idea of a relaxed, party atmosphere for our wedding flawlessly. All of the staff members were very polite and professional. One even tracked me down to offer a private plate of the appetizers from cocktail hour! The team made the bride and groom's happiness a priority of the day. Thank you!

  • From our initial tasting through the entire wedding event, we were thrilled with the service and food. Everyone raved about how delicious everything was, and Spotlight was by far and away our most economical choice - which was an added bonus! Leslie was great about communicating with us and flexible with the details (like having a vegan dish for a guest or removing any nuts due to a food allergy). We would highly recommend them to anyone and would use them again without hesitation!

  • We had stations, loved the thought of having different options available for everyone and everything was delicious! Was worried that we were going to miss out on the appetizers, but they brought us a big plate after our photos together. They also provided the table linens which looked even better than I imagined. One of my guest said they also booked Spotlight Catering for their upcoming wedding, I cannot wait to try it again!

  • Spotlight is probably the BEST bang for your buck! I shopped around for great food and great prices and we knew immediately that they were the ones during our taste testing. Leslie was so easy to work with and as a destination bride, email and communication was very important to me as we finalized our plan, details, and guest count and she knocked it out of the park. They cater to your needs with both food and display, and adjust everything to make your dream wedding come true. All my guests raved about the food and presentation and professionalism. I'd refer them to any guest. Thank you so much for a perfect day!

  • Thank you to Spotlight Catering for making our wedding food so perfect! We did stations with hand-held foods so people could keep mingling vs. a formal sit-down dinner with assigned seats. They have very versatile menu options and make it easy to pick and choose your favorites! My mom and I went in advance for a tasting, they were SO sweet and calm (made me feel at ease about everything) and we were obsessed with every menu item that we tried. Leslie was wonderful to work with, she thought of everything, and on the day of the wedding, I had zero concern about what was happening with catering, because I knew she would make everything run perfectly smooth! This was the biggest event of my life, but I hope I have an opportunity to use them again in the future for another event!!! Leslie and team, you are so appreciated - thank you!

  • Working with spotlight was a really great experience. I worked with them for bar and catering for my wedding on May 19. They were communicative and flexible. Like most weddings, we had some last minute RSVP changes and they were so supportive and cooperative. We got many compliments on the food and bar service. Their team was super friendly during the event, very pleasant to talk to and very warm and seemed to have a great time along side with myself and our guests. They offered to make me and my husband a plate while we were busy mingling with guests. Their menus had a lot of options to choose from and they had a great selection of linens and napkins. They set up the tables beautifully. And on top of that, they were very reasonably priced. Working with them was a no brainer- I would highly recommend working with spotlight!

  • As a wedding planner I encounter all different types of catering companies and service and I have to say by far Spotlight/Port a Pit was INCREDIBLE!!! The food tasted awesome, it was hot and flavorful. the staff was super hard working and attentive to the bride and groom and to anything we needed. Our contact Leslie was great to work with. I love that they are full service with linens and plates and utensils etc. I can't rant and rave enough about them.

  • Spotlight Catering had us at "BBQ"! We saw their Rustic Charm menu online and said to ourselves, "we want that pulled pork and that mac and cheese!" When we met with Leslie, the catering coordinator, she wowed us with everything we were interested in and helped us build the perfect menu for us and our guests. Their day-of execution appeared to be flawless (if anything went wrong I didn't know about it) and everyone came up to us and told us how wonderful the meal was. The servers were right there with the passed hors d'oeuvres, quickly and efficiently (and quietly!) cleared the tables after everyone was finished, helped our bartender pour the champagne toast, and expertly cut and served the wedding cake. We will absolutely use them again for our catering needs, and look forward to working with them again in the future!

    Aww, thank you so much, Rachel! We are beyond happy that our food & service was everything you expected & was "flawless". It was our absolute pleasure to be such an integral part of your milestone day - our family wishes you & your new spouse the happiest, healthiest ever after

  • We used Spotlight caterings rustic wedding menu for our big day. Everything was delicious! Our guests continually complimented the food, which doesn't always happen at a wedding. I thought we got the best menu and value and the staff were all very nice. I would definitely recommend this company. We were not disappointed!!!

    Thank you so much for your kind words! It is always a pleasure and honor to be apart of a couples wedding day! We thank you for the opportunity, and we send our best wishes to you and your spouse for a happy, beautiful life together!

  • My contract was for a station style reception as well as passed Hors d ‘Oeuvres during cocktail hour. The stations were a salad bar, carving station with a chef, pasta station with a chef, and a wok station with a chef. The appetizers (mac n cheese bites, bacon wrapped scallops, spring rolls, and Swedish meatballs) were a hit and the best food all night with myself, bridal party, and guests! The carved meats (roast beef and turkey) were fine, but a bit dry. The pasta station had a lot of options, the Alfredo sauce was my favorite. However I did get shrimp on my plate and not all were cleaned properly. There seemed to be problems with the wok station as one guest told me she asked for chicken and received pork. When she told the attendant, they insisted it was chicken. Another guest got chicken from this station and said it was under-cooked. In addition I heard one or two of the stations ran out of food before all the guests were served.
