My husband and I are not a typical couple as we are both very unique. Our wedding theme was the combination of his likes and my likes to signify the joinging of two people as one. CBV rose to the challenge as we did not go for a traditional meal. It was a combination of his favorite food and mines. It was just as unique as we are. The food was wonderful and worked so well together that they actually complimented one another (just like us!). Everyone is still talking about the great quality, taste, and flavor of the food. If the rating could be higher believe us they deserve a 10+. They will be catering our daughter's Sweet Sixteen in October so we are looking forward to some more great food!

Catering by Vest was a great selection for us. After meeting Carol for our tasting we knew the food would be good, but the food served on the wedding day blew us away. It was delicious and the service was great. The Vest team was efficient in setting up and transitioning seating between ceremony and reception. Their focus on serving the sweetheart table first (even though we had a buffet dinner) was a really nice touch. They really did a great job with such an important part of our big day.

CBV is top notch! Our wedding was April 6, 2013 @ 6:00pm. CBV arrived at the venue minutes earlier than planned...that's an awesome thing for a bride to see - the catering company arriving earlier than originally planned. Their staff was absolutely amazing - very professional, great customer service. Oh, and did I mention the food - the guests are still talking about the great food! It is safe to say that my husband and I will be using CBV for all upcoming events.

Thanks CBV!!!!

Catering by Vest has the best food I've ever experienced for a wedding. In this area, Catering by Vest exceeded my expectations. Almost everyone at the reception said how much they enjoyed their meals!
However, that's about as far as it goes for us. They ran almost an hour late getting there. We had a contract for them to be there at 12:00 noon and they didn't arrive until 1:00pm. The wedding started at 2:00pm. When I called them to see why they were running late, they simply stated that they thought they weren’t supposed to be there until later. They were unprepared from the start. They were contracted to set up the atrium for the ceremony, but the father of the groom had to do that because none of their staff was there and guests were to arrive between 1:00pm and 2:00pm. When they finally did arrive, they moved at a glacial pace. Linens needed to be placed on the gifts table, cake table, and the guest book table and my mother had to do that. The DJ even helped out by setting up tables for us – which was not his job.
They were also contracted to set up our reception. They left out a guest table, which they had to set up once the guests had already entered the atrium for the reception. I provided floor plans for each room to the caterer, and they were not followed. They also left out two table settings in the wedding party. A goomsman and a bridesmaid had to share a chair with other people in the wedding party while toasts were given.
Overall, their service was under par. In order to have a successful event, good service is essential. I understand every wedding has its hiccup, however, their disorganization throughout the day was very visible – even to the guests.
Even the venue Newton White Mansion (who has done business with them for years) was disappointed with their service.
