"Old Carolina was the perfect choice for our wedding. The whole process was smooth and seamless and there were no issues at all. They were flexible when we wanted to add on additional options. The food was piping hot, plentiful and delicious and the servers were friendly and helpful. Overall it was a great value and our guests raved about our food. Totally recommend them!" ~ Michelle W. 10/30/18


"Leslianne and her team were wonderful to work with. They were nothing but professional and sweet to our guests and the food was amazing! Any questions we had, we immediately had an answer. Leslianne was so amazing through the planning process! Whether it was answering my questions, making last minute changes, or sending me pictures of the linens, she was on top of everything. I highly recommend Old Carolina for any event you're throwing.” ~ Alexis 9/14/18


"We love Old Carolina and when we realized that they were one of the preferred vendors for our venue, we knew we couldn't go wrong since they taste so good! We met Brooke at a catering/wedding event and booked shortly after that. We then were in contact with Leslianne, who took over and everything continued to run smoothly. She was always very responsive to emails and requests. We appreciated them handling the linens, tables and chairs also on top of the food. And the food, we had it served family style, which everyone raved about as well as the delicious food! Thanks again for being a part of our wedding and sharing in our vision!” ~ Anna 8/7/18


"Brooke was wonderful to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. She was always prompt in responding to questions and emails leading up to the big day. When the mother of the groom and I did a tasting at one of their events we knew that is was the right vendor to handle our menu for our wedding day! We taste tested everything on the catering menu and the staff gave us plenty of time to try all of our options before setting with us to answer questions, unlike other catering companies we did tastings with. The staff were very understanding of our need to have a vegetarian option and our concern that the pasta we choose may be a little dry if it sets out for a long period of time during the summer days. The staff added notes to exclude the bacon in the green beans and to add extra oil base to the pasta, and those notes were followed as both were exactly as requested the day of the wedding. As the wedding day approached Brooke touched base with me to verify all the details. The vendor also handled setting up the appetizers and did a wonderful job of keeping them stocked. I highly recommend their catering services to anyone looking for an amazing vendor, while still staying within a wedding budget!" ~ Christina 8/2/18


"We chose Old Carolina BBQ for our wedding 3 weeks ago and are so glad we did! Staff was friendly and professional and the food was amazing! People are still talking about it :)" ~ Logann 8/2/18


"Our wedding was Saturday Evening (6/30/18) and I am still hearing how delicious the food was. Everyone was impressed by everything. Even our picky eaters were thrilled. We also have family from both Georgia & Nashville, they love their bbq and they were beyond impressed! The staff who worked our wedding were truly amazing. They roughed it through one of our hottest days to date this summer without AC, and still had a smile on their faces. They were kind, courteous, and very attentive. I’ve always been thrilled with food from Old Carolina, and I’m glad to say the experience of wedding planning with them was truly a dream. All in all a great company to work with and I would definitely recommend them without hesitation!"~ Lauren 7/4/18
