Weddings


"I wish I could give 6 stars! The entire staff at Ralph Brennan Catering (and Melissa Ursin, in particular) was amazing when it came to our wedding. From the food to the coordination and organization, everything was perfect. My now-husband and I were impressed from the beginning by the tasting and the way it was set up. Because my husband is French, he had high expectations about the quality of food and was super happy when his French guests told him that the food was the best that they ever had at a wedding (and they really meant it).

Melissa went above and beyond so many times. One major example was when we had an issue with our first venue about 3.5 weeks before the wedding. Melissa and her manager, Gail, stepped in, called everyone they knew, and found us our beautiful new venue at the Opera Guild Home. Melissa even took a video of the new venue (we are out of towners), so that we didn't have to agree to the venue sight unseen. They were able to adjust to the new situation and time painlessly and flawlessly. We will be forever grateful to them for their help in that scenario! Thank you so much, Melissa! You are wonderful!"
Crystal W.
Bride


"A short note to thank you & your staff for a fabulous job well done! Food was truly fabulous, absolutely fabulous! Beef fantastic, only few slices left over, fish was delicious & had to chase kids away from chocolate covered strawberries so we the adults could eat them all - LOL! Guests were asking about catering all evening - glowing reports.

Staff extremely courteous & could not do enough for guests! Staff did great job of clean up & storing of left overs. Needless to say, we will be calling you again for our next event. Many thanks for making our event a success and very relaxing for me!"
Gail Wall
Mother of the Bride


"Everything was absolutely perfect! We were so happy with our wedding - all thanks to you and your team! The Opera Guild was incredible, the food was delicious and everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for your hard work. It was such a pleasure to plan this party with you!"
Margaret Schully
Bride


"The cheerful and responsive staff members (and especially the catering manager Melissa Ursin) were so helpful! We worked around food choices and prices until I got to a comfortable spot, and everyone enjoyed the amazing food! We had so many compliments on the delicious meal during the wedding, the staff was professional and courteous, and I couldn't be happier with my choice!"
Camille LaBry West
Bride


"I wanted to personally thank you for all that you did to help pull off a flawless event! Our wedding day was perfect. The food, service, and bars were all amazing... the restaurant looked fantastic! You were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to visiting next year!"
Monica and Greg McCoy
Bride and Groom


"The entire weekend was amazing and we could not have asked for a better way to celebrate with our friends and family... The service was also fantastic, everything from the presentation of our "signature cocktail" to the delivery of our dessert and cake, went off with the same professionalism and class I have come to know and look forward to in New Orleans. All of our guests reiterated my same feelings and many went as far as to proclaim our dinner the 'best meal of their lives."
Chris McAndrew
Groom
