Passionate, foodie, and enthusiastic is the kind of couple that Marcy and the entire family-team at Chef by Design loves creating experiences through culinary delights and top notch professional service. Every menu created for every event and every budget is made personal, in house, and from scratch. And if you don't know CBD's Executive Chef John Patrick yet, then let us brag on him because you're getting a gourmet food guru who trained under the First Master Chef of the United States! (Side note: He even got our editor-in-chief to eat and love her childhood vegetable enemy, the squash! If you talked to her mom, you would understand how huge of an accomplishment that was!)

With an eagle's eye for detail, Chef by Design not only provides delicious meals, but also is a team that sees your wedding reception from before-start to after-end. From ensuring flatware is in the right place at your seat to passed hors d'oeuvres perfectly placed on serving trays, everything is pretty much an Instagrammable moment when this crew is around.

No matter if your wedding style calls for rustic BBQ family-style, an elegant five courses plated, or a decadent dessert display, you get the gourmet touch in every dish.
While food is high up there on the favorites list, some of Chef by Design's other favorite wedding day moments are when all the elements of the planning come together, that vision is now a reality, and the couple gets to see it for the very first time! It just can't be beat seeing guests and clients alike enjoy everything you created just for them.

When the CBD family isn't in the kitchen, they sure do love to eat! They love to explore local restaurants, sample local libations, and experience all that Eastern Virginia has to offer with their family and friends. And if Chef John and Marcy ever retire, their goal is to travel the world, start a food critics blog, reviewing all of the fabulous food they experience along the way and creating a map of where to dine when traveling! And we'll be the first readers of that online goodness when they do it one day!
