The food we had at my daughters wedding was simply delicious. Loved that it was made fresh on site. The staff was very attentive to everyone and extremely professional. I believe we got a great deal of food for the price we paid and all the guests were complimentary of the selection and presentation.

Food was fine and displayed well. Overall, disappointed with this vendor due to the following: hard to get hold of the owner , she is not very responsive and seemed disorganized. When we would meet, she often talked about her next event or the higher-end event she was planning or had just finished. She told us more than once that she would prepare food for the bride and groom to have before their introduction but it was not provided. We kept running out of plates and cups and the father of the bride's cousin somehow got stuck filling drinks. We were supposed to have coffee and there was none. We delivered red, bright pink and white flower petals to the vendor/venue to be used for the exit toss. Somehow these were used as decor on the tables. If we had wanted petals on the tables, we would have at least selected petals that went with the bride's colors. These same flower petals were also allowed to be put on the bride's cake by the cake vendor. Flower medallions in the bride's colors (blush pink, ivory) were also delivered and were then added to the ugly mess. The appearance of the cake was ruined and while the vendor may blame the cake people, this mess up would not have happened if the exit toss petals had been kept out of the decor and been reserved for their intended use. On a positive note, the spinach dip was the best I've ever tasted and the venue itself was great. Just think the vendor needs more organization or an assistant so more personal service can be provided and details can be better managed. For nearly $4000, we expected better service and attention to our requests and attention to detail.

Catering Creations did an excellent job. The food tasted great and the presentation was absolutely beautiful. Deanna was great to work with! The staff was awesome, had everything ready on time and were very willing to do whatever we wanted when we wanted it. The food was also fabulous. We had lots of good comments.

I just wanted to say that I personally know Deanna and the team at Catering Creations. I also know the hard work, dedication, and professionalism that they put into every event. Whether it be a wedding or a corporate event, there's not an event too big or too small. And always the right staff to suit each event. As far as the food goes? They have their own recipes which makes it out of this world. They provide awesome displays of fruits, vegetables, meats, and more. Personally set up at each event so chances are that the one you get is designed just for you. No two are exactly alike. I can only give 4 stars for value due to the fact that I don't know what the prices are. I do know that Deanna is a fair and decent person in life and positive that she brings that same fairness and decency to the table when it comes to your event. Don't make the mistake of booking someone who is only in it for the money, and you get what you pay for. Catering Creations is a customer service driven and quality focused company that cares about you.

We had an absolutely awful experience with them before the food had a chance to ever hit the table. They are the exclusive caterers for Magnolia Hill (a property we thought we would love) The initial meeting was unimpressive. All the owner could blather on about was how fantastic their yeast rolls were. She could not quote the quantity of food we were buying, insisted that no matter our choice of chicken, pork or steak they would all cost the same. She all but forced additional trays of veggies and fruits onto the budget which we repeatedly told her we did not want. She also insisted we had to have at least 6 staff on hand for a buffet. Following the meeting we decided to compare pricing at some other caterers. Catering Creations was anywhere from $1000 to $3000 higher than EVERY other Caterer and in many cases with significantly less options. Knowing they were exclusive to Magnolia Hill we tried to set up a secondary meeting with the owner to discuss. It took nearly a month before we could get a hold of the owner via email, phone or text. In the end we had to break our contract with Magnolia Hill because Catering Creations was completely inflexible and refused to work with us in the slightest beyond recommending we invite less people or not offer food at all. IF you are remotely interested in Magnolia Hill, meeting with Catering Creations beforehand is an absolute must...do not take anyone's word for it including the people at Magnolia Hill. Completely unprofessional. Impossible to get ahold of. And rigidly inflexible. SEARCH OUT ANY OTHER CATERER even if you love Magnolia Hill.

Catering Creations responded with the following comments:

This is wedding for March, 2015 not recently as they purported.
The price was not in their budget and I really hope they find a venue that will allow a different type of catering than we do. We offer upscale, sophisticated catering for a fair price. This client wanted a more casual tailgate type party which is fine but could not be done for the price that he told me that he was willing to pay. Yes, he told me what he was going to pay for our services...not the other way around.

Magnolia Hill is an amazing property that is customer service driven and doesn't allow the caterer to drop food in aluminum pans on the table. We take time to provide a manager at each event, beautiful fabrics, equipment, and table design plus we have enough staff to make sure that every table gets bussed, punch bowl stays filled, food table stays full plus many other services. If that means we have 6 staff for 200 guests with multiple food stations on such a huge property then that is what it means. I want it done right and most of our clients appreciate this!

All my communication with this client was very quick and professional. Maybe he didn't realize that the bride and I were communicating as well. From the day after they booked with the venue to the date they cancelled was just over 30 days.

I hope you won't let such a negative review stop you from exploring our catering services. I love all my brides and grooms. Working with over 200 brides a year is a CHOICE that I make because I LOVE IT! This is not just a JOB I have. I try to handle them personally and professionally. Some are very hard to please but I am up for the challenge....so bring it on. If you want a caterer that is fun, has great design ideas, excited for you, and easy to work then give us a try.
Sincerely, Deanna
