the food

So many of life’s greatest memories are cultivated as we gather together over a meal – and a wedding is no exception. Food is at the core of any great wedding reception. Your special day should be memorable, and so should the meal you share with friends and family.

Need Inspiration?

Selecting your wedding menu can be a daunting task. May we make a few suggestions, compliments of the chef?

Start with hand-passed hors d’oeuvres to welcome guests and set the tone for the night. Sit down to a restaurant-quality meal. Indulge in a masterful confection. Finally, keep the party going with a late-night buffet.

If this sounds enticing, then Rich’s Catering & Special Events has a menu for you. We offer a variety of wedding packages to fit any budget and delight the most discerning palate. You’ll enjoy the highest quality cuisine, attentive service and a one-of-a-kind experience that will have you and your guests raving and reminiscing for years to come.
