One of the best caterers in Raleigh weddings is HL Catering Co. Founded and led by Executive Chef Houston Loper, this team quickly gained a reputation for their fresh food, and cutting edge presentations. They are a fan favorite among Triangle Area wedding pros, and couples alike.
For Chef Houston, it’s all about customization. He loves nothing more than to work with couples to create a distinct menu for each couple based on seasonality, preferred flavors, traditions and other meaningful elements from your relationship.
Our Heart of NC Weddings team members have tasted their food at several events and it is always memorable both in taste as well as how it was served. From interactive stations, to fun passed hors d’oeuvres, or plated meals, this company is always on point. In addition to pulling from their popular display, this team is also all about custom menu building.
Chef Houston Loper’s love of food spawned from him growing up in a family with women who loved to cook and who also happened to be very good cooks. Houston cultivated his cooking experience working under Chef Kevin Rathbun and Chef Buddy Holly at the famous Atlanta Fish Market. He then attended culinary school at the Art Institute of Atlanta.
Following graduation in 2003, Chef Houston opened several restaurants and began catering services in Macon, Georgia. In order to challenge his culinary abilities, Chef Houston decided to focus only on HL Catering as he enjoyed making each of his clients’ events memorable and one of a kind. Chef Houston and his wife, Katie, moved the catering business to Raleigh, as she happens to be Tar Heel born and bred. They have been doing corporate events and have recently entered into the Raleigh wedding scene.
We are very proud to include them on our list of recommended vendors. We know that Chef Houston will help you plan the perfect menu for your wedding events!
