Best wedding food EVER posted 7/22/2013

My new husband is a chef and I refused to let him be in the kitchen on our big day so he could relax. And naturally, the food was one of the most important things of our event, so I knew finding a caterer would be a challenge. Most caterers were either very generic or much too expensive. I almost can't believe we were lucky enough to find Michael! We spoke with him early on and hashed out a rough idea of what we wanted, including a make your own pulled pork taco station. He not only accommodated our requests, but loved our ideas! Several months later we had a tasting at his shop, and it was amazing! The husband made some slight tweaks on a few things, which was fine with Michael. On the day of, the food was mind blowing - just what we wanted and hoped it would be like. Our guests were raving at cocktail hour and all I had to say was "wait until you get to dinner!"
His staff was a well-oiled machine. They were professional, nice, dealt with all our requests, brought me food while I had my dress bustled, and made sure my wine glass was full. When we ran low on wine, they checked in with us and then sent someone out to get more. I couldn't have asked for more! They were the best and worth every cent.



Thank you for your major part in making My daughters wedding celebration a day and evening we will always remember. I am still getting raves about the food from appetizers to dessert. Beyond  that the service was spot on. Your staff made sure no one was chasing down the Hors d'oeuvre's as happens at so many affairs. I tried them all,  of course, each and everyone as tasty than the next and artfully presented. Under your eye and guidance your staff promptly served and pick-up - no one was left wanting a glass of wine, beer or water. Your wine  and beer selections were very good too. The maxim tells us we have to choose between quality and quantity - you proved the maxim wrong. Everything was generously served and entrees were replenished in abundance.
In short Michael, you came highly recommended and  - we were expecting to have a great affair and you more than lived up to our expectations. Please feel free to use me as reference in the future.
Thanks again for a wonderful evening!

Hi, Michael,
And Tara and Megan and Wyatt…
Thanks to all of you for yet another magnificent spread yesterday for Bruce's birthday party.
I think one guest's unsolicited comment, which she shared with Tara, just about sums it up: "There wasn't a single bite of food that entered my mouth that wasn't absolutely delicious!"
Of course, that's always been the case at each of the five events (so far!) we've been fortunate enough to have you put together for us, from our wedding to this day – so no real surprise there!
But it's not only the food and the exquisite presentation; it's the attention to every little detail (like making sure candles are lit at just the right moment, and helping to vase up flowers that arrive at the last moment, and so on) that makes it all go so well. And the "hostess" (myself, in this case) gets tons of praise for basically doing nothing but enjoying herself, like all the other guests…
We appreciate your professionalism, your fine cookery, and your overall gracious handling of everything!
Many thanks,
Carol N.
