Wedding Catering

Our wedding catering expertise is in menu planning, event flow, and all of the little details that make the day feel effortless. 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.

Proposals

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.

Menu

This is what we’re all about! View our full wedding packet here for an overview of services and pricing, and a long, mouth-watering list of our menu 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.

Rentals

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 we can price out any specialty items that you prefer. Proposals include delivery fees as they are determined by the venue.

Staff

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

Taxes, Gratuity and Fees

All are included on your initial proposal.

"We had so many options and choices with our food and everything was so customizable. Everything from our cocktail hour (a mix of passed appetizers + a cheese board) to our signature cocktails to our family style dinner was great. There was lots of food and it was quality as well as quantity. Birchtree sources from local farms and everything they use is in season. Sustainable & local aren't just buzzwords. It's nice to know that you are helping to support local farms and businesses and all produce used is in season for the best flavor."
