"I simply can't say enough good things about Bluewater Kitchen! Michael and Christina were an absolute joy to work with and their food is simply the best catering we have ever tasted! When we found Bluewater Kitchen, we were blown away by how much thought and detail was put into their food, as well as how amazingly delicious all of it was. We loved the farm-to-table concept, and that all of the food on our menu would be sourced locally from farms near our wedding venue...on our actual wedding day, our guests couldn't stop raving about the food and drinks. Everyone loved the signature cocktails, appetizers, main courses and desserts (our cake was so incredibly beautiful), and couldn't stop talking about how delicious everything was.
We were also thrilled to work with Christina on many of our event details, such as coordinating linens, dishes, decor, etc. Christina has an amazing eye for design and was so helpful as we finalized our vision for the day. Our wedding wouldn't have come together the way it did without her help!
Bluewater Kitchen did such an amazing job and every last detail was considered. We couldn't have asked for more and Bluewater Kitchen was essential in helping our day come together."

"Bluewater Kitchen exceeded all of our expectations and more. The food was incredible (many of our guests commented that it was one of the best wedding dinners they ever had), to include an amazing croquembouche dessert (one guest had 12 profiteroles, and I'm pretty sure the average was 5). They use local, fresh ingredients, which matched our venue perfectly. As our wedding coordinator, Christina was first class. She was with us every step of the way, was so accommodating, and held everything together for us on the big day. Our friends and family commented on how impressed they were with her attentiveness. Her and Michael really created a special day for us, and we'll be forever grateful."

"My daughter was recently married at East Lynn Farm in Round Hill, VA (June 1916) and used Bluewater Kitchen as the caterer. The food was outstanding and so many guests said that it was the best wedding food ever! Christina was a joy to work with. She coordinated the entire event from the buses, wedding table decor, wedding decor and had a very calming influence on all of us. I cannot say enough nice things about how pleased we were with Bluewater Kitchen. This was a "destination" wedding for us as we are from the Chicago area. Michael and Christina deserve 10 stars for their incredible job!!! Well done!"
"Bluewater Kitchen catered our wedding and they are just awesome! Michael and Christina, the owners, are wonderful to work with. Michael is also the chef and is a great talent, and Christina managed the catering. Christina also did a fabulous job pulling together the table decor, which I threw her way only about a month before the wedding. I just told her what I wanted and how much I wanted to spend, and she nailed it! The food, drink and atmosphere were extremely important to us and they executed our wedding vision perfectly. We wanted it to feel like a great party, so we went with a menu of a number of heavy hors d'oeuvres - raw oysters, mini burgers, mini Caesar salads, beef skewers, fried mac n' cheese bites, to name a few - they were all delicious! I also really wanted a leg of Spanish Jamon Serrano being carved to order, in honor of my Spanish heritage, and they made it happen. Our guests had a great time, and all told us how much they loved the food, the ambiance, the decor, the whole experience. It would not have been possible without Bluewater Kitchen, thank you Michael and Christina!"

"Bluewater Kitchen catered our wedding in early June and did a terrific job! The food was very tasty and our guests raved about everything from the appetizers to the main and side dishes. Michael did an incredible job preparing the food for such a big crowd without sacrificing on taste. They offer an approachable menu that foodies and non-foodies can enjoy. They have a great mission supporting local farmers. You could tell the food was fresh and quality sourced. They also made a buffet dinner work logistically.
Bluewater was very helpful with many aspects of the wedding outside of providing the food. Christina worked tirelessly to make sure the reception venue was beautiful. She brought extra decorations for us to use on the big day and coordinated the rental delivery days in advance to give us lots of time to set up. She added many little touches that made the venue feel very special. They were very helpful in helping us figuring out the layout of the tables and buffet. We wanted to provide our own tablecloths, napkins, liquor, wine and beer to save money and they were flexible in working with us to make sure everything was integrated.
Michael and Christina are really great people and were always a pleasure to work with from the start of the planning to the final day. They recently got married so they understand the complexities of planning a wedding and the stress that comes along with it.
Michael and Christina gave us a unique, personalize and delicious wedding food service that I don't think a big wedding catering company can offer. They have really good taste in menu options, decorations, and beyond. We are very happy with our choice."

"Bluewater Kitchen is AMAZING!!! My husband and I asked Bluewater to cater our rehearsal "cocktail/appetizer" hour in Middleburg and couldn't have been more pleased or impressed.
The food was incredible. Christina worked with us to create a perfect menu of hors d'oeuvres with a southern twist and the guests loved it. Some crowd favorites were the chicken and waffles, lamb lollipops, and macaroni and cheese bites (to die for!!). They also added a personal touch by decorating the venue in a Valentine's Day theme (since it was on Valentine's Day) and made the menu RED. LOVED IT!
The desserts were phenomenal as well. I've never been a big sorbet fan but the black currant sorbet (for our lactose-free guests) was fantastic. Totally changed my mind about sorbet. They also had chocolate strawberries, so perfect for the occasion.
Would highly recommend to anyone planning a wedding, rehearsal dinner, event, party or anything else. Christina was so easy and amazing to work with. She was fun, sweet, creative, and everything was well executed. Thank you Bluewater Kitchen for making our rehearsal dinner so special and one we will remember forever!!"

"Outstanding chef and caterers. We used Chef Michael for a five course dinner at our facility, for twelve guests (VIPs from DC). Everything had to be perfect! Michael sourced entirely from local farms and producers, and the food was absolutely outstanding! Christina and the other staff acted as servers, and handled all the place settings. They did such a beautiful job and our guests really felt pampered the whole evening. Just as importantly, when all was done, everything was cleaned up. I didn't have to fuss with anything!
I would use these guys again and again. Highly recommended."
