Chef Katherine from the very beginning was attentive to every detail, going above and beyond by also helping us to plan, working amazingly with all our vendors, and relieving our stress all along the way. Truly amazing! Once it came to event time both Chef Katherine and Chef David Paul excelled beyond all imagination. First, with the rehearsal dinner and then with the main event, contributing to everyone's enjoyment and all the positive comments of it being the "BEST WEDDING" most of our guests said they had been to! Thank you and Mahalo to the whole team who were awesome! And made our special day so MAGICAL.

Katherine and her crew were absolutely everything I asked for and then some!!! Outrageous Gourmet, took care of business for me. They helped me with things I wasn't sure about, helped keep me close to budget, paid attention to all my requests especially the dietary restrictions for my young daughter. We had a "drop off night before" supper with all the fixings, Katherine came herself warmed up and set up for our family and guests, as well as left behind a wonderful "morning of" breakfast for us. I felt like I've known her forever!!!... That's important to me, MUST BE PERSONABLE and make me feel it's more than a job. My reception dinner was elegant, intimate and just enough shabby chic for our little crew... Once again personable. It was so much more than a reception dinner... The Big Island is the place to do a special moment and please allow someone like Katherine and her crew come in and take care of you... Can't wait to find a way to have her taking care of us again for anything and everything.

Chef Katherine and David Paul at Outrageous Gourmet did a phenomenal job of catering our wedding at a private estate we rented. Everyone at our wedding raved about the presentation, taste and appeal of the delicious appetizers, main course and dessert. Everything was professionally handled and served. The food was extremely creative and beautifully plated. And for those who need a wedding planner, I would recommend Katherine to handle all of the details and finding all of the resources from lighting, sound, entertainment, decor, florist, etc. I would not hesitate to recommend this company especially if you are as picky as I am.
Dream Wedding Come True
Thanks to Katherine and Outrageous Gourmet, our wedding and honeymoon were perfect! Katherine was our wedding coordinator as well as provided chef services for our event. Katherine was easy to work with and contributed many great ideas that made our wedding and honeymoon a truly memorable event. Katherine's attention to detail showed in every aspect of our event and our wedding was beautiful and intimate. Katherine scheduled our musician, photographer, hair and makeup, florist and of course our pastor. All of the folks on Katherine's team as well as the contractors were friendly and professional. In addition to coordinating our wedding, Katherine provided a sunset dinner sail, a helicopter tour and marlin fishing trip. Katherine's cooking exceeded expectations with every delicious course delivered with impeccable presentation and style. Katherine excels at the details and we would highly recommend her for any event you are planning on the Big Island. It was one of the most romantic and wonderful experiences, and we won’t ever forget it. Thank you again for the best time of our lives!
Small Wedding with Down to the Last Detail
Chefs David & Katherine were amazing! Not only were they pleasant people, but they both are amazing chefs! They prepared an intimate wedding celebration dinner and we were totally in awe. The food was delicious and all the small specials touches were not left unnoticed! From decorating the lauhala mat, to the cute napkin ring! Not to mention that Katherine took it upon herself to pick up our camera and capture the photos that would have been missed as it was late in the evening and the photographer had gone. Thank you again for an amazing experience!

My fiancé and I had to plan our destination wedding with family/parents coming from broad and it was super stressful - neither of us had ever been to the Big Island before. The first wedding planner/caterer did not work out --- in fact it was a horrible experience -- I turned to the manager of the house we'd reserved asking desperately for a local reference and she (a professional catering biz exec from LA herself) 'unequivocally' vouched for Katherine Louie @ Outrageous Gourmet. She said "she will customize whatever your needs are within budget & time constraints." And it was true. We can't agree more. Her Facebook page has tons of pics of events she handled/coordinated/catered and she has sample menus etc. just to inspire ideas. Then she tells you what questions you should be asking etc. so she took the anxiety of not knowing what I don't know out of the equation altogether.
Her prices are very competitive also compared to other highly visible wedding planners in the area. Katherine and her team are very courteous, professional, patient, communicative, and above all, dependable and trustworthy. On the day of the wedding, my DIY process encountered all these unexpected obstacles that we were already complete wrecks. She stepped right in and filled the vacuum…. l am glad I did...I have foodie friends and family from Japan, my fiancé has die-hard soul food fans from Detroit...and guess what, EVERY SINGLE PERSON raved about how yummy (and beautifully presented as well) the food was!!! All the staff were extremely capable, professional, and courteous... and the day after the wedding, since we were too brain-dead to pay musicians and tips that we had originally planned, she made a trip out to handle all that remaining business for us with consistently positive engagement.
She has nice taste, too...she filled the gap and just made sure overall it was beautiful and directed my DIY team and wedding party. If her team ever expands to the bay area, I’ll definitely work with her again. She respects relationships and integrity and I tend to want to do business with someone whose personal integrity I respect and in her case it was that PLUS serious experience and competency. She also has really talented people (chefs, coordinators, etc.) on her team. Wedding is seriously stressful but all our families were SO happy with our wedding, and they're picky & snobby and yet they were satisfied - Katherine also brought in the best reverend EVER who did such an amazing Officiant job as well as the later fire dance performance.…..My husband' and I, as well as our entire family are ALL 100% happy and feel good about it all, and that's what matters. She executed flawlessly and so gracefully and we're so deeply appreciative of just so much that she and her team put in for us.
Totally worth the money. catering, wedding planning, and day-of coordination. I say if searching for caterer or wedding planner, give her a ring... She knows what
she is doing
