Amanda was a great contact and very flexible with our menu. The only thing I would change is the communication could have been a little more clear. The details of our walk through were a little bit miscommunicated. After that and up until the day of the wedding they totally made up for it. The day of the team was fabulous to work with. Thanks!

We hired Spice of Life to cater our wedding rehearsal dinner BBQ party at a vacation rental mountain home up Sunshine Canyon. From the beginning, they were responsive, professional, and extremely accommodating to our budget and our needs. We had no trouble planning the event from out of state, and when it came time for the party we had complete and total confidence in their services. My husband and I were able to enjoy spending stress free time with our guests, while the Spice of Life staff handled everything from set up to clean up with ninja-like efficiency. They served an abundance of delicious food to our 80 some odd hungry guests with flawless presentation and friendly smiles. Everyone raved about the food, especially the mac n' cheese! Spice of Life is a world class operation already renowned for their quality of services, and it was an honor to have them help make our wedding weekend a dream come true. We highly recommend them, for any occasion! Thank you, Spice of Life!

A Spice of Life did an amazing job catering our wedding. They separated themselves from other caterers by really proving that they wanted to work with us. Their follow up was always amazing and any recommendations they made were spot on. Before actually having the wedding, I had no idea how much they really helped make that day happen. Don't trust something so crucial to anyone but the best. I would refer them over and over!

I am so happy we went with Spice of Life as our caterer of choice for our July wedding. They were easy to work with in planning the wedding, making sure that all details were covered. The wedding coordinator, Dawn, even came with us to our final walk through in Estes Park, which was a good hour and a half drive from the coorporate office. She amde sure everything was planned perfectly and to our liking. The day of the wedding, we had another coordinator who we got to meet beforehand to maker sure she knew everything she needed to run our wedding day of. She did not disappoint. The best part was that I didn't have to worry about any set up or take down and I barely even noticed that the day of coordinators were there- that's how smoothly they ran everything. They made sure everything worked out perfectly. The wait staff was also very professional and responsive. The food turned out beautiful and delicious. It was worth the extra money to go through Spice of Life for the service, presentation, and farm to table food choices. Thanks so much SOL!

Dawn and her team were unbelievable! I didn't have a wedding planner, but with ASOL you don't need one. Everything from the planning, to the responsiveness, to the day of were amazing. The food was delicious and we had so many comments about how great everything was. The buffet went very smoothly.. never a line at the food line or bar.. which is pretty amazing with our crew. Thank you a million times over for making our wedding planning and day such a success! We owe it all to you!

Spice of Life was fabulous. We loved working with Dawn, she called me periodically to just see how things were going and if we needed help with anything. The food was amazing, they were so helpful the night of the wedding, and they worked with our budget. I would highly suggest using them!!

Our wedding was on January 2nd of this year. We were originally going to have it at the A Spice of Life Event Center, but since it didn't reopen with the flooding, we had to find a new venue. The staff at A Spice of Life was great! They gave us a list of venues to choose from, and went along with the decision we eventually decided on. While there were some monetary issues due to the change in location, we got those worked out.
We also worked with three different people within A Spice of Life (at various times), and at the end, our Event Coordinator was Amanda - who was amazing!

At the end of the day, our wedding went super smoothly!! Amanda and Meridi were wonderful! They were there for us, and made sure that everything went great - they even made sure that my husband and I ate! :D The rest of the staff and the bartenders were wonderful, and talked to the guests and had a good time as well as did their job!

We did a plated dinner and had options for a fish dish (my personal favorite!), a chicken dish, a vegetarian dish (my husband's favorite!), and a vegan dish (a close second favorite for me - and great for the vegan guests you might have!). I have a lot of dietary restrictions, so was hesitant and worried about the meals, but A Spice of Life was very, very, very accommodating and I felt great afterwards!

All we heard after the wedding from the guests, was how amazing all of the food was, and how wonderful the event staff were! I just wish we had more leftovers to take home with us... :/
