Where in Orange County?

Colette’s might be priced well.  I’m using Carbonara and they’re very reasonable.

@Loandrob2014:  OMG I love Newton Barn!!!  If I ever get married again, I totally want to get married there. 

You should check out Wood Ranch.  Their catering meals start at $11/plate, for chicken.  I think it’s an additional 18% to have staff there, and I think they stay there the whole time.  I know they cook on site too, but IDK how much more it costs.

Ours was the Patina Group, loved them but they are a bit pricey. I’ve heard Jason’s Catered Events is good and pretty reasonable (they do Earl Burns Japanese Garden and Nixn Library).

We booked Taste Catering in Lake Forest.  They provide catering for the film industry and corporate events as well as special occasions.  You can actually see their huge (clean!) and organized kitchen where they prepare the food and they provide a great meal for your tasting.  One of the most reasonable in price that we found.  We chose to have all the necessary rentals (linens/tableware/glasses/silverware) included in our quote.   They dont charge a service fee (which is a huge waste of $) just a reasonable delivery fee.   Servers, non alchoholic drinks, set up and clean up.  They provide other services as well (bartending, coordination, etc).  Our venue also allows to bring in our own catering, alcohol.   Taste may be well worth a try!  PS. we are still looking for a florist and videographer.  Any recommendations?
