ABOUT THE CHEF
Hello! I'm Richard Wood, proud owner of Woodrich Events.
I found myself drawn to the art of cooking before I could reach the top of the stove, and I have dedicated my life to the hospitality field ever since.
After my culinary studies at the Art Institute in Seattle and Cordon Bleu in Paris, I traveled across the country from Seattle to Philadelphia, Chicago to California, absorbing the many different cultures of cuisine that fed my passion for the culinary arts and travel. I now reside in the Bay Area, one of the most prosperous culinary meccas on the planet.
My food philosophy is simple: Use the freshest ingredients from local farms and businesses around the Bay Area and the Peninsula and tailor these ingredients to your catering needs. Whether you choose an outdoor barbecue or an elegant dinner party for eight, rest assured what you will enjoy was born, raised and grown not far from your backyard.

MEET OUR WEDDING COORDINATOR
Hello! I’m Karen Morrison Perry, a Bay Area wedding coordinator. I have worked in this field for more than eight years and have overseen more than 150 weddings, specializing in month and day-of coordination.
Having a wedding coordinator is truly one of the best wedding gifts you can give yourself. It's an opportunity for you and your guests to fully enjoy the wedding you've always dreamt of.
When planning a wedding, you spend countless hours on the decisions, details and every meaningful touch. After much effort, the question then becomes: “Who will make sure everything goes according to plan?” At Woodrich Events, my role is to do exactly that for you. My focus is to turn your special day into the reality you've worked so hard to create.
