Catering Works is unique among our recommended food vendors. Not only do they have a well-earned reputation as one of the best Raleigh wedding caterers, but they also have amazing floral and dessert departments. This makes Catering Works a one-stop shop for lots of your wedding needs.

Catering Works is owned and operated by a team of sisters – President Jill Santa Lucia and VP Lorin Laxton. For nearly 30 years, these women have stayed cutting edge with a wide array of menus and services. They are also love giving back to the local community, and support many food related charities. They also implemented a green initiative, that ensures minimal waste and maximum recycling efforts and also places an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Their outstanding service and reputation has even earned them the exclusive catering contract at the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Team Heart of NC Weddings has featured several of Catering Works creations in editorial shoots in our magazine, and they always blow us away. They always show up with the most creative and exquisite designs – from food to flowers. Beyond their obvious skills, this is a truly professional team that takes every project seriously.
