Wedding Catering


Weddings are what we do!

From menu planning to event flow, and all of the little details that make the day feel effortless, this is what Birchtree does best. Paired with our warm service staff and on-site coordinator, you’ll be able to enjoy the festivities with your guests while we make sure you have a drink in your hand and a plate of food at the ready.

We showcase our seasonal menus at regular tasting events inside Globe Dye Works in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, and we offer planning tools that cover layout, timeline and vendor details that allow you to simply enjoy your day.

Our first step begins with preparing a curated proposal that has all of your needs included. We focus on the venue, your guest count, the time of year, and any variables that may effect your financial total. Although shopping for caterers can feel daunting and often hard to compare, we do our best to be thoughtful about your event so that you’re able to accurately account for all costs, and have a final bottom line number to work with for budgeting. Our proposals include everything we anticipate you’ll need for food and service. 


This is what we’re all about! Visit our Menus page for our full list of seasonal and year-round options. 

Beverage Service

Our BYO bar service includes everything but the alcohol. We’ll provide ice, mixers, barware, and liquor liability insurance, plus a buying guide to help with your purchasing. We employ certified bartenders for all service of alcohol, and your proposal includes one signature cocktail and wine service at your guest tables, if applicable. If your venue handles alcohol service or if you’re using a third-party vendor, we can exclude this from your proposal.


Each venue varies in what is needed for tables, chairs, linens, etc., so our proposal will detail what we need to bring in to execute your wedding based on your needs. You’ll have the opportunity to browse items to choose styles and colors for linen, china, flatware, and glassware, and any specialty items that you prefer. Proposals include delivery fees as they are determined by the venue.


Our excellent waitstaff, bartenders, chefs, and day-of coordinators are on site to set up, serve, and clean up. We typically arrive three hours before the wedding begins, and stay for one hour after.

Tax and Service Charge

All are included on your initial proposal.

"I got so many compliments on the thoughtful touches, the delicious apps, the cheese board, and the dinner: the family-style dining was a huge hit, and the pumpkin gnocchi and roasted chicken were the best I’ve ever had. You truly cannot go wrong with this team, and I credit them with our wedding being a completely stress-free party where everyone had a fantastic time (and as the bride and groom, they ensured that we got to eat our fill!). If I could give 50 stars, this team earned them!"
