Fantastic Caterer!!

Linnia was an absolutely amazing caterer. She catered my wedding of about 90 people in August. I had multiple guests tell me both at the reception and days after the wedding how delicious the food was, especially the chicken parm and potato salad! She is a kind, professional, well organized caterer whom I would hire again in a heartbeat.

Shawn did and amazing job working with us to create a menu for our wedding that was exactly what we wanted. The food was absolutely amazing, our guests raved about it. To top it all off, he charges much less than other wedding caterers, while not skimping on quality. I would highly recommend Livewire Catering to anyone.
