100s of Happy Couples

Before you go, see what our past couples have to say about our menus!

“Rocky Mountain Catering & Events did absolutely amazing work to make our non-traditional wedding menu (Korean BBQ-inspired buffet) a delectable reality. Our event designer, Shaeley Willis, was honest that RMC was not experienced with our menu’s cuisine, but that they were 100% interested in going outside of their culinary box! The chef NAILED the food at the wedding!”

– Laura, Bride

Everything was absolutely perfect from the excellent communication before the event to the delicious food to the helpfulness of the event staff. We were blown away by the professionalism and thoughtfulness of the event staff. The captain of the team had appetizers waiting for us since we didn’t get any during cocktail hour, prepared plates for us so we made sure that we ate, put together to-go plates after the event and even packaged up a piece of each type of cake for us to try. The bar tenders did an excellent job and were so friendly! The food was incredible and we got tons of compliments. They even did a perfect job of making sure each of our vegetarians and people with allergies got their specific meal. Look no further this is the best caterer out there!

– SB Walker, Bride

Rocky Mountain Catering catered our wedding in August 2022 and we are so glad that they did! The food was delicious (everyone raved about it–especially the brisket), and the presentation was so pretty. We wanted to focus on seasonal ingredients, and they were so easy to work with and were flexible with adjustments as we found the perfect menu for our evening!
