We do not have enough words to thank Twelve Baskets for such an amazing experience for our wedding. We were in constant contact with their team on food choices, quantities selected, and process questions, and the AMAZING team (mainly Vita!) was super responsive! Vita was so patient with us as we updated everything and we are so grateful for her awesome guidance. We booked Twelve Baskets because they were on the preferred vendor list for our venue and they by far had the absolute best tasting food and their plating was absolutely beautiful. We did tasting tests with four different catering companies prior, and within five minutes of being at Twelve Baskets we knew right away that they were the perfect choice. We decided early on that our food budget was very important to us, and we wanted to make sure that as the largest chunk of our budget we went with a location that could deliver our vision for our Alice in Wonderland themed reception. Our wedding day food was excellent and every single guest was very impressed, which was something we were hoping for as many traveled from the other coast to be here. Our menu consisted of a lot of PNW favorites, including the following: -Cedar plank salmon -Kalbi flank steak -Corn elotes -Strawberry salad -Thai fresh rolls (vegan and also shrimp) -Crab cakes -Grilled potatoes It was also very important for our guests to have vegan and gluten free options, and Twelve Baskets was very accommodating to this. The plating was amazing, and everyone was raving about the food all night long. The servers were excellent, and the bartenders attended to everyone promptly. The bartenders especially timed our cocktail hour perfectly with the amount of liquor we had ordered before beginning wine and beer service as well. The servers were also very prompt about moving all of the chairs from the wedding space to the reception area. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding a dream come true Vita & team!

We are so glad we chose Twelve Baskets for our wedding! Vita and team were always extremely quick to respond to all our questions, helpful in their recommendations, and worked out a tasting menu for our moms (answering their hundreds of questions) when we couldn't attend ourselves. Everyone I spoke to was incredibly accommodating and so friendly  - Honestly, there isn't one person we ever spoke to - phone, at their catering site, or at our venue - who didn't feel like a real friend doing their absolute best to help us create the perfect day!  There was something like 8 plus events they catered the same day as ours, but you would never know it. It seemed like everyone was working just on our wedding day. We requested 4 different appetizers: alaskan scampi, cilantro prawns, brie/poached pear cups and pork tenderloin crostini - all delicious. Bonus, they made sure we got to taste all of them since we missed our cocktail hour. Our Buffet consisted of cedar wrapped salmon (Wild, not farm raised!) and peppered beef tenders. Both were cooked to perfection. They actually brought the main course shortly before service to ensure it was fresh cooked and still warm rather than leaving it under heating laps during their set up... We wanted our guests to remember the catering and they definitely will! An extra special perk, and unbeknownst to us, they packed away a full dinner, bottled water, and dessert for two that was presented to us after we arrived at our hotel at the end of the night (crucial) along with a special treat. I don't want to ruin the surprise, but I'll keep it as a momento forever! Absolutely no regrets using Twelve Baskets and I would recommend for any occasion!!
