Your wedding meal is likely one of the most important meals of your life, right? There are so many options for catering that it can be a little daunting trying to narrow down the list. So we’re highlighting a few of our favorite Chattanooga wedding caterers from our preferred Chattanooga wedding vendors list to maybe give you a little inspiration or a jumping off point for your research.

Tasteful Gatherings

Tasteful Gatherings is one of the Chattanooga caterers on our Howe Farms preferred vendor list. This full-service boutique caterer and event designer creates custom menus, private tastings and more, perfect for your wedding reception, or even any of the micro events leading up to your wedding.

Apron Strings Catering Co.

Another vendor we’ve enjoyed working with for Chattanooga weddings at Howe Farms is Apron Strings Catering Co. Another local full-service catering company, Apron Strings believes that “life is delicious!” They feature a vast menu of options for catered meals, and can customize menus to meet guest list needs and client preferences. Their main goal is to create an incredible and memory catering experience with exceptional food as well as amazing service.

The Crepe Outdoors

A less conventional yet incredibly delicious option for your wedding day catering, The Crepe Outdoors is another favored catering vendor of ours. This is a great option if you have envisioned something a little different for the meal on your big day. Think breakfast for dinner, a crepe cake instead of a traditional wedding cake, or even a yogurt bar. The Crepe Outdoors can also take into account any food allergies or sensitivities when planning your menu. When it comes to wedding catering, they can meet you where you are budget-wise, creating something grand or something lower key, whatever makes most sense for you. They’re also located in Cleveland, TN, just a hop and a skip away from our venue spaces. Check out their site to learn more about The Crepe Outdoors!

Food Works Catering

Another favorite, and Chattanooga classic, is Food Works Catering. Formerly known as Four Bridges Catering, this company was developed by North Chattanooga restaurant and brunch hotspot, Riverside Food Works. Troy Sutton, operating partner, and executive chef Jeremy Allin have more than 35 combined years of experience in the food industry, with a love for creating distinctive and bold dishes that wow. This team will curate a dining experience tailored to your specific needs and budget, handling everything from the menu to planning, staffing, rentals, and set-up/execution of your wedding event. They are dedicated to creating a memorable experience for each client. Learn more about their services on the Food Works Catering website.

Rib & Loin

Ok, who doesn’t love BBQ for a southern wedding? A classic, cost-effective, and crowd-pleasing option for a wedding reception dinner is always BBQ and sides, and when it comes to Chattanooga barbecue, Rib & Loin is a long-time favorite. This team has delivered award-winning barbecue catering for more than 30 years now. In addition to their list of available smoked meats, they also offer a variety of other options like stews, soups, salads, chicken fingers, burgers, and more. They can handle catering needs for any size event, from 10 guests to 10,000, and they are backed by a long history of experience. If down-home, unassuming, and delicious BBQ is your speed for wedding eats, check out Rib & Loin when you’re shopping for Chattanooga wedding caterers.
