The Fruited Plain, a Parsippany-based catering company owned by Verona residents Rosemary and Drew Gabbe, has been inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame from The Knot, a leading wedding planning resource. Exceptional wedding professionals who have earned four or more of The Knot Best of Weddings awards are inducted into the Hall of Fame.

In its 14th annual year, The Knot continues its longstanding tradition of supporting local wedding vendors with The Knot Best of Weddings 2020, an annual by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. To determine the winners, The Knot analyzed its millions of user reviews across various vendor categories, including venues, musicians, florists, photographers, caterers and more, to find the highest rated vendors of the year. These winners represent the best of the best wedding professionals that engaged couples should consider booking for their own unique wedding.

This year, The Knot Best of Weddings winners represent the top 5% of local wedding vendors listed on The Knot. There were only 1,020 new inductees into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame for 2020, out of hundreds of thousands of local vendors featured on The Knot.

“Brides and grooms have high expectations for their wedding day,” says Drew Gabbe, co-owner of The Fruited Plain. “I am deeply honored by the praise that they have given our food, year after year, on The Knot.”

The Fruited Plain has catered weddings, engagement and rehearsal celebrations since 2002, with food and service that is as sophisticated or simple as its clients want. Whether couples’ idea of the perfect party is barbecue and beer tastings under a backyard tent or a sit-down vegetarian feast, The Fruited Plain creates a menu that exceeds expectations.
