In this WeddingWire review, Carly goes on to say:

"(Of course, we were already expecting all the deliciousness after our amazing food tasting with Mickey, which, by the way, I highly recommend!!!We got to sample a TON of food and even received a lot of very helpful advice and recommendations regarding our reception timeline!)

I have to call special attention to how unbelievably accommodating B&M’s menu was to my gluten allergy. I was blown away when I found out that I could eat practically everything they offered!!! They even made us gluten-free clam chowder for cocktail hour—SO DELICIOUS. For someone who often has very limited choices at restaurants, it made all the difference in the world to be able to enjoy basically the entire menu on my wedding day. Not everyone might be able to understand what that means, but—honestly—I will be forever grateful! (However, I should also mention the cornbread. It was the one item on our menu that wasn’t gluten free, but I can still confidently attest to its deliciousness. We offered it on the tables at the beginning of the meal and our guests could not stop gushing over it! Even though I couldn’t enjoy it myself, I loved being able to offer such a unique alternative to the usual dinner roll basket!)

We are so appreciative to Tammy and the rest of the staff for helping make our night so enjoyable and stress-free. The food was right on time, the drink line was never long, and the table set-up and breakdown was impeccable.

B&M’s hard work truly allowed us to make the absolute most of the night!!"

What are people saying about our A La Carte Pick-Up and Delivery service?


Dear B & M Catering Company,

On July 29th we picked up a clambake for 10 and 2 sampler platters to feed our hungry family of 18 while vacationing in Barrington Rhode Island.  

We were originally planning to hire a personal chef but that turned out to be much too expensive.  We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed every single item you sent.  The clam bake itself was wonderful and the sampler platters to die for.

Not only was the food spectacular but the fact that you included every single thing we would possibly need to serve it ourselves from the lobster crackers to the trash bag.  

You are wonderful!!   Thank you so much.

Dear B&M,
Thank you. The food was wonderful. I was also surprised that the young man who came to deliver the food set it all up. All details were included down to salt and pepper wipes and baskets. I will definitely use you again.

new england wedding event venue suggestions

Can we!

Yes, of course, we can!

We have had the most amazing opportunities to provide catering services for weddings and other events at some really great New England event venues. 

We cater lots and lots of weddings by the oceanside. There's nothing quite like a New England Clambake or Surf 'n' Turf menu accompanied by the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.

We've worked with many couples who have decided they'd like a rustic-style wedding. These are often held in a venue with a barn or maybe an empty warehouse or other workshop-type area.  Rustic and country-themed weddings have been very popular.  Our outdoor catering style is perfect for these styles of wedding and other events.

We have highlighted a list of New England event venues that we have enjoyed working with. We have found each of these venues to have its own unique personality while providing personalized attention to the couples and their families.

We would be really happy to talk with you to answer any of your questions about our own experience at each of these venues.  Give us a call to get some insights from our event planners.

Summer Wedding By The Sea

  • Posted on: 28 February 2017
  • By: Brian and Mick

Celebrations - It's what we do!  

And it's even better when we get to do what we do in a beautiful venue such as we found ourselves last summer.  The Farmhouse by the Sea in Matunuck, RI could not have been more charming for a wedding.

During the later part of the 19th century, the picturesque hamlet of Matunuck, Rhode Island set itself apart as a famous art colony, mostly inspired by the unique beauty of its landscape. Wood Sculptor Seth [aka Caleb Brown] , the owner of this property, set up his family home and his studio here where he carves each of his masterpieces in a converted nineteenth-century dairy barn across from the Atlantic Ocean.

Seth Gross and his crew specialize in offering outdoor weddings and receptions in Southern Rhode Island with a gracious style not readily found today; allowing friends and family to gather in a serene, seaside setting to celebrate your wedding day. The wedding ceremonies and receptions held at this venue revolve around retaining the historical seaside charm of Rhode Island’s south shore while offering intimate, modern, and elegant services.
