Services Offered

Fun, flexible and flavorful are three words that best describe Absolute Celebrations Catering. And really, what more could you want from your wedding caterer? The couples we spoke with told us that co-owners Chef Ryan Martinez and Event Producer Cleodia Francisco are basically the power couple of wedding catering.

Chef Ryan offers a flexible-yet-curated menu inspired by Californian cuisine, while openly accommodating custom requests of global themes, family recipes and special diets. And with superior organization and communication, Cleodia will walk you through the wedding catering process from concept to completion.

Absolute Celebrations is a full-service caterer offering buffet, plated, family-style and even drop-off catering services. Fill out the Weddings form on their website to instantly download their menu and pricing.

Questions and Answers

What is your typical price range?

Basic pricing is composed of food, service and rentals (dinnerware, glassware and flatware). Because we have designed the menu to be very flexible, you can control your per-guest pricing to fit your budget.

Do you accommodate tastings?

For full-service events, we schedule a tasting session after an initial menu has been established. Tastings cost $45/person. This will be deducted from your bill if you choose us to cater your wedding.

Will you serve alcohol we purchase ourselves?

Yes. We carry the proper insurance to serve client-purchased beer, wine and liquor. We can also refer you to wholesalers.

Do you charge for cake cutting and champagne pouring services?

No, there is no extra service charge for cake cutting or champagne pouring.

Do you make wedding cakes?

We do not make wedding cakes but we can refer you to cake designers.

How do rentals work?

We are happy to help you coordinate and arrange rentals on your behalf through our partner vendors. This includes dinnerware, tables, chairs, linens, lighting and dance floors. We are also able to work with your chosen vendors should you decide to arrange this separately.

What additional equipment do we need to rent if the venue does not provide a kitchen?

To ensure that you and your guests are served fresh, high quality food, we do not travel with cooked food for full service events. Depending on your menu, we will arrange for an appropriate kitchen "build-out" and coordinate with your venue on any fire department rules.

What other options do you have besides full-service wedding catering?

For casual wedding receptions, you may find that our drop-off catering menu may be a right fit.
