A Spice of Life was great!!!

My husband and I are extremely picky eaters so we needed a catering company with the flexibility and willingness to provide us with food we would like. A Spice of Life was willing to do anything we wanted... Anything. We had so many special requests that I'm sure they thought we were crazy, but they accommodated them all without complaint. They were also very great about working with my sister's severe food allergies.

If you have special food requests, or even if you don't, A Spice of Life is the catering company to go with! You won't be disappointed!

I can't say enough about the extra time and dedication A Spice of Life put into my detailed wedding reception. I was completely stressed about every detail of all the planning EXCEPT for the catering. I knew I was in good hands with my event specialist and I really appreciated her constant follow up. She also worked diligently to stay with in my budget yet accomodate every little detail she could. I couldn't have been happier! These ladies really are so professional and a pleasure to work with.

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!
