David from Classic Catering took care of us from Day 1 once we had booked at the George Peabody Library. We were able to have a tasting with David a few months out from the wedding. He sent us a menu in advance with so many delicious options we had a hard time picking the ones we wanted as choices! We wanted to have food that was local to the region and David respected that and took special care to bring that to our menu. I still have guests messaging me about the bacon wrapped scallops! Guests were so pleased they were able to try all 6 hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour. The waiters worked in pairs where one person carried the tray and another person followed quickly behind to take napkins or toothpicks from guests hands. The open bar had a great selection and guests never worried about an empty glass. David made sure that one waiter was assigned to my husband and I for the entire night.
Classic Catering is top notch from start to finish!! If you have a wedding in MD and have the option to use them, you HAVE TO. They are worth every penny and go above and beyond in every aspect of the wedding. They take pride in their work, train their staff to a T, and I cannot forget to mention their food is amaaazing. Even my father-in-law who thinks everyone who has a wedding, overpays, admitted that this was 100% worth it! We received so many compliments about the cocktail hour and dinner items. Not only was the food great, but the bar and table service was on-point. My friends said that during our many speeches, the servers would continue to fill up wine glasses so no one was thirsty or bored. I worked with David throughout the process and he was an absolute delight. He was quick to respond to any questions, was very helpful in deciding on details, and he even put on my veil (which I had forgotten on another floor) before I walked down the aisle!
If I haven't thanked Bobby enough already, just wanted to publicly thank him and his staff for a phenomenal job. From the team's creative ideas, unique presentations, phenomenal level of service and quality of the food, our event was exactly as expected - over-the-top catering without seeming so. Elegant and fun. We're grateful.
I've had the pleasure of working with The Classic Catering People for more than 10 years and each time it is a flawless experience. TCCP takes the time to listen to their clients to ensure that every aspect is perfectly planned and executed. Over the years, TCCP has catered dozens of BGE events and each has been superior - from the food and drink to the decor and service. The company owners, the event managers and the servers each take great pride in contributing to an experience that is a treat for the mouth and the eye! I just worked with Alan Pressman and Eileen Miles on the BGE Bull Roast and it was about as close to perfect as an event could be. TCCP is simply fabulous and I give them the highest possible recommendation!
I was married the weekend of Hurricane Irene on the waterfront in Baltimore, MD. We worked with Alan Pressman from Classic Catering, who not only coordinated our rehearsal for us (we had a friend officiate the wedding), but helped us push back the wedding by 3 hours when our venue informed us that we'd have to be out of the venue by 8 p.m. (instead of midnight) with only 12 hours notice. Food is fantastic and the service was top notch. They set up everything for us, allowing us to really enjoy our wedding day and not sweat the details (or the Hurricane!).
