This couple had their dream wedding on the beach.

Although beach weddings and receptions are more costly on the sand, they went for it!

This couple had a lounge for cocktail hour and dancing after dinner!

The Kite Banners screamed "Celebrate" and the groomsmen could not resist!!!
We also have tall bamboo poles and adorn them with streamers that flow in the Gulf breeze!


Rely on Emerald Coast Catering,  the destination wedding specialists.
No matter where you are in the planning process, we can guide you to your dream wedding!

Congratulations on your engagement!

Some decisions made while planning your wedding come easily, others are more difficult.
This is where Emerald Coast Catering comes in.

We offer two types of wedding services to fit within your budget.  Our standard Weddings include the fine food and superior staffing we have provided to hundreds of brides over the last eight years.  We now offer the same fine food accompanied by a chef only in order to fit within tighter budgets, which we call our ECONOMY Menus.

Our philosophy is to provide you with as much information as possible to aid you in planning your very special day.  We know you are busy and most of our brides live out of town, so if you have any questions, please ask!  If we do not know the answer, we will be happy to find out.  We want you to feel confident that your decision to select us as your caterer translates into a wedding that is beautiful while allowing you to be a host & guest. Whether you select our full service or our express menus, you can rest assured the meals will be delicious and your guests will be delighted!

With our standard weddings we strive to make each wedding unique and memorable... customizing it to reflect your individuality. Our business is anchored in custom wedding coordination, meeting & exceeding your vision with a plan to fit within your budget. Explore our website for information & fresh ideas. We can customize your wedding in order to transform your concept into a reality. 

Our ECONOMY menus allow you to handle details yourself, limiting our services to catering, beverages and staffing only.  Our express menus provide catering and our chef(s) without the options of staffing, beverage, coordination or rental services. 

No matter your budget, no matter your style, whatever your theme... Traditional, Tropical, Cosmopolitan, Vintage, Garden, Romantic, Formal or Casually Elegant..., no matter if you are entertaining thirty or three hundred... we have the appropriate menu. Your wedding is special to us.

Best regards,
Chef Gary Serafin and Staff!
