Love Notes

Hands Down - The Best!

Perfect - Best Caterer Ever

Hudson's Edge Catered my rehearsal dinner and wedding. We had so many compliments on both meals, and they were delicious. Highly recommend the Chicken, it was the best I've ever had. The staff was kind and helpful. They thought of everything, couldn't have been more pleased.

Highly Recommend!

We cannot thank Hudson's Edge Catering and Events enough! They were such a key component to creating such a wonderful wedding. We utilized this company for dinner and bartending. We got many compliments on how fantastic the food was. The bartenders had such high energy the entire evening, creating a great experience for our guests. Additionally, we took advantage of the Worry-Free Service Package. We were a little hesitant at first due to the price and our wedding budget, however, it was definitely worth it. They met with us several times prior to the wedding to ensure that they had all the details necessary. Our wedding day flowed so smoothly, and it was way less stressful to have someone to set-up and tear-down for us. Additionally, we had purchased our linens elsewhere but ended up with a tablecloth crisis 3 days before the wedding. Jessi, our day off coordinator, was fantastic in helping us locate tablecloths in time for the wedding. We highly recommend Hudson's Edge for all your wedding needs!

Could not recommend Hudsons Edge enough!

Could not recommend Hudsons Edge enough! The people are great and so easy to work with. Christyn was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of planning and organizing our menu, linens, etc. Can’t beat the price! Our initial quote was thousands of dollars cheaper than anyone in the area. Most importantly.. the food was SO GOOD! From appetizers to the meal to our late night snacks everything was delicious. Everything on wedding day was just so as good if not way better than that what we had at the tasting. Thank you for everything Hudsons Edge!




By far the most amazing catered food I have ever had.

We booked Hudson’s Edge Catering for our wedding this past May and I could not have been more pleased. By far the most amazing catered food I have ever had. We were on a tight budget and they had so many options to choose from. Everyone at the wedding said how surprised they were by the quality of the food. They were also able to cater to my wife who is vegan.




... wow what an amazing job they did

The food is fantastic and the staff does a wonderful job. They catered a wedding tonight at Alum Creek and wow what an amazing job they did. I highly recommend them!




The Best "wedding food" Ever

From the moment that we attended a vendor event at Ivory Meadows and tasted your food, I was set on booking with you.  Your food, presentation,  and professionalism far exceeded other caterers.  Your team helped set up the room quickly when a weather change became and issue.  They were efficient and polite.   I had more than a few people tell me at the wedding that it was the best  "wedding food" they've ever had.  I can't say enough about how easy it was to work with Christyn , and our coordinator the day of the wedding was amazing as well.  You are doing a great job and I've already told several people about you.  Thank you for taking the stress of catering out of our wedding! We were so thankful for all you did to make the day special.
