Blue Elephant catered and ran our wedding day at Granite Ridge Estate. They were professional, everyone loved the food, and they made set-up and tear-down simple. The staff were friendly, and they helped make our wedding day absolutely amazing. We selected a spinach-feta-walnut salad starter, a filet-mignon with lobster tail etouffee, and a selection of appetizers for a cocktail hour. It was all delicious.

Where to begin with Blue Elephant? Before we even had a venue, we were booked with Blue Elephant - and it was the easiest, and most rewarding decision we collectively made. Blue Elephant is not just a catering company, but a full service event planning and production company, which is something they take great pride in and is evident in every little aspect of their work. Planning our wedding in Maine, from New Jersey, required that we find someone who was trustworthy, reliable, patient, and had as much energy as we did to make sure it was The Best Day Ever - and we found that person in Kaitlyn, a long-time veteran but newly promoted Event Producer who inherited us just four short months before our wedding due to an unforeseen staffing change. Lucky for us, she didn't miss a beat! Kaitlyn did so much for us and kept us on track every second of the way. She went above and beyond our expectations, picked up quickly on the exact vision we were going for, checked in on us regularly in the weeks leading up and more importantly, the day of the wedding, to make sure we had everything we needed and more. Her whole team was just outstanding the day of the wedding, and everyone from the servers to the owners of Blue Elephant were nothing short of a pleasure to work with. They somehow took all of the stress involved in planning a wedding, out of the equation. Everyone at our wedding was remarking on not only how professional and kind everyone was, but how amazing the food was. Another thing, we had requested a rather unique array of passed appetizers for our cocktail hour and we weren't completely sure about how they would be executed - Blue Elephant did it better than we even imagined they'd come out. All of our guests were raving about the quality and diversity of the food. If you're planning a wedding in Maine and you're from out of state, not sure where to start - start here. You'll be grateful to have done so. We certainly are!

Blue Elephant truly sets the bar for professionalism and dedication in catering. I used this company for my September 8th wedding at Shady Lane farm in New Gloucester. Throughout the entire planning process Fausto and his team were attentive, responsive, and accommodating. We worked within my budget and customized a buffet menu that worked for my venue and guests. I was honestly completely pleased with Blue Elephant already going into the week of my wedding- but when it came to crunch time- they exceeded any expectation and truly made my wedding perfect. I ran into some issues with rentals and with one email to Fausto he had the problem solved- within 10 mins (not even enough time for me to have a melt down). The team was absolutely meticulous with set up and worked so well together you could barely tell they were there. During the event Fausto and his team were incredible. They were three steps ahead of the game in every aspect, and ran the show flawlessly. Someone followed my wedding party, making sure they had food. The cards were counted and organized- I could go on and on. With this alone- I wouldn't even have cared if the food was good- but it was AMAZING. Every guest was raving about the dishes- and I just had a simple buffet. To sum it up- if you are thinking about using Blue Elephant, please do, it will be the best choice you make for your event. I am endlessly grateful for Fausto and his team. They have truly found what they are meant to do and mastered it. Bravo

Be prepared to spend thousands of dollars for their service or they treat you like you don't matter. All my guests were very unhappy with their food which is no surprise as it was completely different than the taste test I had 4 days before the wedding. They only served cake to maybe 20 people out of 80 and stole the rest, including all of my sugar decorations. I've had 3 other people use their services and have all complained. My wedding was not everything I had wished for because of them. Be aware!!!

Cheating Business! I ordered food on my Wedding. When the foods come out, isn't same as the sample. If you want to order from them (it good taste) please take a picture first and telling them before party start.

The BAD Elephant Blue Elephant is AMATURE catering at best. In a few words: disorganized and dysfunctional management, poor communication, tasteless and bland food. Thankfully, boxed pizza saved the day. We hired them for our wedding a few years back to serve apps and a sit down dinner. As appetizers were passed, we noticed there were NO bacon wrapped scallops. Instead, Blue Elephant REPLACED this with some fig-thing! Apparently they were unable or simply forgot to get the scallops?? This last minute substitutions was made WITHOUT our knowledge and without ANY price adjustment/refund towards the bill, which of course they make you prepay in full. The plated dinner was such a disaster! The steak was so disgusting and poorly cooked, no one ate it and the brussel sprouts that accompanied it were completely inedible. How do you mess up brussel sprouts?! It was really upsetting to see all the thousands of dollars worth of food, be dumped into the trash. Some of our guests actually LEFT our wedding and brought back PIZZA!! So this is what you get when you spend thousands and hire people who claim to have 27 years of catering experience?? How embarrassing. Not to mention, you can expect a ridiculous delay in emails, expect to make numerous calls to get a hold of either Ruben or Fausto and prepare yourself for lots of confusion and unexpected menu changes without being notified or reimbursed. Hiring the BAD Elephant was a total waste of money and I would never recommend them to anybody!

Blue Elephant is amazing!! We wanted a unique wedding dinner menu and Blue Elephant made it happen. The food was delicious! We had so many compliments about the food, especially the tacos! Not only does Blue Elephant make amazing food, they also help make the wedding day run smoothly. I can honestly say we don’t know what we would do without Fausto and his team. They were amazing! Fausto came hours before our wedding and made sure everything was set up perfectly. He even got rid of a hornets nest so our guests wouldn’t get stung! He really went above and beyond. Fausto made it so we (and our family and friends) didn’t have to do anything or worry about anything - just enjoy. He made our day run smoothly. We cannot say enough great things about Fausto and Blue Elephant. We highly recommend them.

Blue elephant was a great service to work with. From offering a wide variety of food options, being open to custom orders, executing well and providing friendly, attentive staff they helped enhance the wedding day exponentially. The part I really want to rave about though was all the pre-wedding/day of coordination services. We had a change in consultant midway through our planning but the transition was handled really well. The lovely lady who took our event over, Kaitlyn, was quite possibly the primary reason I was able to keep my cool as well as I was (don't get me wrong, I had my moments.. lol). We had a tight schedule to set up because of restrictions with the venue so she got together a large team to bust everything out in a short time. She made last minute rain changes with a quiet, comforting poise that made me comfortable with the changes even when I was disappointed about the weather. She coordinated all the vendors day of, carried out any mundane request I had, answered emails at all hours of day or night, made sure the groom and I had food and beverage throughout the reception (even during pictures), decorated our cake BEAUTIFULLY, set up our tables thoughtfully.. I could go on and on. I'm sure she had much help to get all this done but she orchestrated it beautifully. We didn't have a choice of caterer due to an exclusive contract with our venue, but we were not disappointed with the quality of food and definitely not the quality of service. Certainly recommend.

Blue Elephant was the most accommodating vendor we had the pleasure of working with for our wedding. Ashli was our main contact person and also our day-of-coordinator (she does a lot of coordinating before the day-of, though!) and she is absolutely a gem. She's professional, patient, and overall wants you to be happy. I must have sent her the most emails with the most changes and questions throughout the wedding planning process, and Blue Elephant accommodated all of them. I can't even remember how many iterations of the contract we went through (because of us, not Blue Elephant) before we arrived at exactly what we wanted. We were given the freedom to design our menu and Blue Elephant executed it perfectly. The food was delicious, the service was great, they made the tables look amazing and provided props (included in the contract) to enhance our wedding experience even more. If there were bumps in the road, we didn't know about them, because Blue Elephant are true professionals with a tremendous amount of experience. And it shows! Thank you, Blue Elephant and especially Ashli for executing our vision perfectly and for guiding us through our wedding day with such patience and calmness. I'll never forget Ashli's reassuring hugs and smiles and how efficiently her team worked to set up the entire reception, even down to arranging loose flowers. Everything was perfect. Future brides: Blue Elephant is an easy choice.
