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!

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!

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!!

This was the most amazing food and crew we worked with! I miss the food already, it was so yummy! Not one Guest had a bad thing to say about the food and the service was great as well. My husband was very frustrated that we were one table short and his family had nowhere to sit. Well as they helped to get our food he walked away to figure out why they didn't have a table. The crew from A Spice of Life took in their hands (after asking someone from our venue to do so a few times) to make sure they got a table out immediately and that made my husband very happy! It was just so amazing that they did what they could to make our day special, when it wasn't their job to worry about that!
