We just had our wedding at The Old Mill on 06/07/14 and it was absolutely perfect. Don and his staff were very accommodating to every request we had. Don was great to work with and very detailed about everything and you can bounce any ideas or questions you have about things and he is very helpful. He made sure I was comfortable with every decision I made since I was indecisive about some food choices. The only thing we wish we could have done was a food tasting which they don't provide but all the food was delicious. The atmosphere the staff created with all of my things I dropped off looked wonderful. Lena the coordinator for the day was so helpful and took care of us making sure we ate during cocktail hour and dinner.

The entire thing was so beautiful, I would recommend them to anyone.

Don Conner and his entire staff were so amazing during the wedding planning process. Several times in the months leading up to the wedding I would text or email Don with a barrage of questions/concerns and, as if he knew I was having a meltdown, he would call and say exactly the right thing or have answers to each and every one of my questions.

It rained on my wedding day. Not rain as in a drizzle, rain as in a complete downpour, flash flood warnings, etc. I called Don at 11 am on my wedding day, panicking that the river next to The Old Mill (our venue) would overflow and my wedding would have to be cancelled. All day he kept me calm and assured me that my wedding was going to happen, although the outdoor ceremony we had planned for was probably not, and chairs were set up inside.

Well, five minutes before the ceremony was set to begin, the rain stopped. The sun came out, and Don got his staff outside in the courtyard with giant squeegees and fans and they dried off the courtyard and we had our outdoor ceremony!

Don was amazing, I could not have asked for anything more from him. Friendly, super nice, so helpful, and a great calming presence for an overwhelmed bride. And of course, his food was amazing. Definitely make sure to get the cheesesteak spring rolls for your cocktail hour.

I found Conner Catering through my venue and checked them out on Wedding Wire. The reviews were all so positive, I figured I had to check them out. Donald has been in the wedding business for a long time, and he knows what he's talking about. He directed us through all of the large and small decisions, and offered advice all along the way. At times during the planning process he was a little difficult to reach (Note - phone is the best way!), which made me nervous leading up to our wedding day, if everything was going to come together. When we met to do the menu selections, he pulled out the looseleaf paper from the first time we met and were just throwing around ideas. I don't know why I worried, because Conner exceeded all of my expectations! The food was excellent and all of the guests were raving about how delicious everything was. At Donald's suggestion, we served dinner family style and it was a big hit. We had a few guests who were vegetarians and the salad had bacon. The staff put together special salads just for them! The staff was fabulous and I'd like to point out that Ashley, our Maître D, was incredible!! She took care of everything I could have needed. When we arrived, she and her staff took out the decorations and put everything just where I wanted it to be. I was so worried about having to do the decorating and they made it look beautiful! This is a great, family owned business, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone!

Our family and friends can not stop raving about the fabulous time they had at our daughter's wedding that was catered by Donald Conner at The Old Mill in Rose Valley! Having had our older daughter's reception there nine years ago, we were confident that our experience would be just as wonderful and memorable. From all the planning to the actual day, this time, Conner Caterers even exceeded our expections! Every request was met, and all suggestions regarding the menu, the venue, and other vendors were greatly appreciated. On the day of the wedding, we were greeted with a welcoming atmosphere in which we enjoyed a delicious menu along with all the other festivities. We could not have been more pleased with the attention to detail and care provided by Donald and his courteous staff. They certainly were able to accommodate every need of a new bride and her happy parents. We definitely had a perfect day, and would recommend Conner Caterers for any upcoming occasion.

We cannot thank you guys enough for all you did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the food to the professional staff, we couldn't have been happier! We are still smiling!

We chose to get married on 11/8/13 in the stunning courtyard with the faux ceiling and stone arches. It was BEAUTIFUL, but, a little chilly. Without asking, Jeanne and Don put a cute little cart filled with hot apple cider and ginger snaps by the entrance to the venue. Our guests LOVED it! They also went around to our guests with special dietary needs and prepared special meals for them. Our niece and nephews even got chicken fingers and fries - they were in heaven!

The bar staff was fabulous and the service was impeccable! Lena, Mike and Dion especially stood out. But, everyone was outstanding (I just couldn't remember all of their names).

The bamboo garden was a HUGE hit with the family and photographer. Cocktail hour, under the tent, was decorated beautifully. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the appetizers. And, the portions were incredible! They went in for dinner and didn't realize they were getting more food!

We seriously cannot thank you enough for making our day perfect. Bravo to The Old Mill, Conner Catering, Fresh Florist Designs and Doughmain Bakery! But, especially to Jeanne and Don Conner.

Don and the rest of Conner Catering were absolutely wonderful from start to finish!! Upon meeting with Don, we knew right away that this was the venue for us. Not only is he completely honest and accommodating, he really strived to make the day everything we wanted to be and understood the vision we were going for. No creative ideas are out of the question and all questions were answered fully and in a timely manner!! At first we were a little bummed about the fact there are no tastings, however, the food was beyond DELICIOUS. Lena, the day of coordinator, was so sweet and accommodating the entire day, we just loved her! Thank you to everyone at Conner Catering at the Old Mill for making our wedding day such a wonderful day to remember!

My venue did not come with an exclusive caterer, so we had the freedom to choose on our own. Donald responded within ten minutes to my initial email inquiry about availability and pricing. That was a great indication to me of how easy he would be to work with, and he did not disappoint. He was always available to us and patient with any changes I made along the way. I was impressed by the number of options he presented for hor d’oeuvres, entrée, and dessert, and at one point when I asked to make a change to the menu, he even came up with additional menu options that would keep us within our original budget. The day of the wedding everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Our guests complimented the food all evening long; I only wish I had gotten to eat more of it that night! I highly recommend working with Conner catering!

Catering is by far the most important part of a wedding, because it impacts so any areas. Clearly, it's important to have someone involved who knows what they are doing. They need to have good taste, a vision, and ability to deliver under pressure. So who would be better suited for this than Conner Catering, not many?

The first time we met Donald (Owner & Operator), we knew our wedding was in good hands. We got down to business quickly, and started in a very thorough way, nailing down every component of the wedding from colors, to styles, lighting, etc. On top of that, he was extremely patient with my wife, as she has a tendency to change her mind A LOT before landing on a final decision! I will mention that Donald stays relatively quiet until very close to the event, but I actually think it's by design, because he is so talented at what he does, he doesn't want you to be worried about anything and handles all of the fine details behind the scenes. We can say with 100% confidence that our wedding day could not have gone any better than it did, and this was made possible by Conner Catering and their flawless delivery.

The intimacy they created for our ceremony at The Old Mill will never be forgotten, and all of our guests kept telling us how beautiful it was. When it came time for the reception, Donald made his true expertise seen as an accomplished chef. The food was out of this world, which I think is taken for granted, as many weddings I have been to are a bit lacking in this area. From the hors d'oeuvre, to the main course, to the ice cream station, it was all spectacular.

Thank you Conner Catering for making our wedding so exceptional, it really leaves us speechless thinking of ways to describe the excellence you achieved. You played an integral part in making the wedding of our dreams.

Where can I even begin? Our day was beyond anything we could imagine and it was mostly due to Conner Catering and their team at the Old Mill. When we began to looking for venues, the Old Mill was one of the first to come up and from taking a look on their website, it became one of my top choices. We were looking to have a romantic & rustic theme with an outdoor ceremony and the Old Mill seemed like the perfect place. Pictures don't really do this place justice! You have to go in person to see how beautiful and magical this place is!

Donald was really knowledgeable and professional, no complaints there. He was very focused on what we wanted to do and didn't try to push us into anything we were not comfortable with. He had a lot of options available for the venue and it gives you room to put your vision together. We told him our budget and he gave us options for catering within that range. His menu is super extensive and has a lot to choose from!

We had no issues throughout the process and if we had questions, Donald responded fairly quickly! Now, onto the food...it was delicious! From the hors d'oeuvres to the main courses, everything was so good! We opted for family style and really, there was so much food. Our guests commented on how good the food was! We also provided our own alcohol which in the long run helped cut down our costs some and gave us some control at what was served.

Overall, our wedding was amazing and a big part was due to Conner Catering and how wonderful Donald and his team were! If you're looking for a beautiful venue and great food, I would recommend the Old Mill and Conner Catering!

Our wedding at the Old Mill was absolutely flawless. The food was amazing and the Conner Team executed everything seamlessly. Don was the major contact person and he was quick with responses. His ideas were all helpful and you can tell he has been doing this for a long time! He helped to plan every detail of the day. It rained the whole day so the ceronu has to be moved indoors, but the contingency plan was solid. Many of the guests told us they had no idea that it was even supposed to be outside because everything went so well. I highly recownd Conner Catering to all future brides!

Don and his staff did an amazing job for our wedding reception at the Old Mill. From the first day we met with Don just when we were looking at the venue, he was very straight-forward with us. Once working with him, he was great working within our budget. He also recommended photographers, DJs, and florist that were within our price range. We were also able to bounce ideas off of him for decorating and he gave us his honest opinion on whether or not that would work within the venue. As a result, our vision for the wedding totally came to life and we could not have been more pleased. Our guests raved about the wedding, from the uniqueness of the venue, the professionalism of the staff, the variety and quality of the appitizers and the food, as well as the surprises such as the smore's bar. You should definitely consider them for your catering needs.

Don at Conner Catering knows how to design a reception perfectly for the unique needs and interests of the bride and groom. He spent time with my daughter and son-in-law discussing the many options, he professionally presented his suggestions, and he made her ideas and preferences work beautifully.

I received so many comments about the outstanding family style dinner, the courteous and professional staff, and the beautiful ambience of the Old Mill.

The entire wedding reception was beautiful and memorable. Thank you for everything you did for my daughter over the last year and 1/2. I know you have hundreds of
weddings but you made us feel like this was the only one.

This is I day I will never forget thanks in a large part to your expertise, professionalism and ability to make each wedding unique. When my other 3 daughters get
married, I'll be in touch.

We had our wedding at the GORGOUS Old Mill in Rose Valley Pa on August 18, 2012. Conner Catering is the exclusive caterer for the Old Mill. Donald and his staff were amazing! Donald was such a valuable resource during the entire planning process. I was able to really customize our wedding from the chair choices and linens to the endless food and dessert options. Donald really listened to my ideas and gave suggestions to make sure everything worked perfectly together. Not only was the food out of this world (our guests are still talking about it) but Jeanne Conner and Leena made sure that every one of my little details was executed beautifully. They were amazing! My very dear friends were the florists for the wedding and were so impressed by the staff’s attention to detail, willingness to help, and over all professionalism. The day was flawless! Our guests continue to talk about the amazing time they had at our wedding. Conner Catering is more than just a catering company that serves up delicious food. They are experts at executing flawless weddings. Thank you so much to Donald and Jeanne Conner and the rest of their staff for helping to make the day magical...we will forever be grateful!!

Conner Catering made my dream wedding a reality! We searched for a unique place-rustic and possibly outdoors and found little in our price range. As soon as we visited The Old Mill and met with Don, we knew that we did not need to look anywhere else. The venue was exactly what we were looking for and Don offered us a lot within our budget and did not try to sell us things that we could not afford! He answered all sorts of little questions I had throughout the planning process. He was readily available for dropping off and picking up decor, bar supplies, etc. the day before and after our wedding. The day of the wedding, the staff put together my DIY decorations/ideas perfectly and everything looked amazing, just as I had envisioned. The staff was very attentive to my husband and I and our bridal party before, after and during the ceremony. They made sure that we had food and drinks and that we were comfortable on such a hot, summer day. The day was truly unbelievable. Now, nearly 2 weeks later, I continue to get compliments from our guests, saying that our wedding was, "the best wedding they have ever been to!" People loved the venue, the service and the food! It was truly amazing! Thank you so much Conner Catering! I will be recommending your services for many years to come! :)

Mother of the bride here: Wow everything was delightful. What impressed me most is that Conner Catering's attention to detail and anticipation of our needs.

Small details like: Providing fruited ice water unrequested for our guests on this very hot day was quite amazing at the entrance to the ceremony grounds.

Checking, and double checking to make sure that we had the right size table for our favor display. Rolling with our little changes. Getting to know us and coming up with exactly the right food accommodations to meet the ambiance we wanted to create. Our guests were delighted. There were no issues and the important people were catered to.

We hired Conner Catering for my daughter's wedding. Hiring Don is like having a wedding planner, too, because he managed the entire event, not just the food. He provided an extensive list of choices to help plan our menu. His wife managed the actual food preparation at the wedding and executed flawlessly. They provided numerous appetizers which were all delicious, and kept on coming during the cocktail hour. We had a family style dinner which our guests loved. The food was piping hot and each dish was expertly prepared and delicious, and plentiful. We had an ice cream sundae and root beer float station which our guests really enjoyed. Everything was very attractively presented. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding that they ever went to, and the food had a lot to do with it. Our guests are still raving about the food. The servers and bartenders were all very seasoned professionals. I could not have been more pleased. If you hire Conner Catering to manage this most special event, sit back and relax, you are in the best of hands.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our wedding reception at the Old Mill! Every detail of our wedding day was perfect, Conner Catering and their team at the Old Mill exceeded our expectations!
The only area where we can see any room for improvement is in responsiveness- this is primarily in the early stages of contact, it can take some time to get phone calls returned. However once you do and you sit down to meet with Don Conner (the exclusive caterer for the Old Mill), you have his undivided attention- he is absolutely incredible! He knows the venue so well, shares his ideas, and most importantly gives honest feedback based on all of his experience. I can honestly say that I trusted Don completely. From linen and chair choices to suggestions for our menu, Conner Catering offered so much to choose from and Don really took the time to discuss our options with us.

The day of team was amazing- Jeanne Conner was a dream and made sure that my vision was executed perfectly, Leena was so attentive, she took amazing care of us and was constantly checking in to ensure that I had everything that I needed. All of the servers and bar tenders were great, too, super helpful and polite.

The food was incredible! From the butlered hors d'oeuvres that just kept coming to the gorgeous stationary hors d'oeuvres set up, our cocktail hour was amazing! Our guests were blown away by the food and the lovely outdoor setting. Dinner was equally impressive. We had a sit down dinner and served a surf and turf duet- everything was beyond delicious and the plates looked great. I cannot say enough good things about the presentation- the outdoor set up, our table settings, and the food- everything was so impressive. We could not get over the value- our price per head was very reasonable and looking at our event you would have thought that we spent significantly more.

Conner Catering did an absolutely amazing job! They exceeded our expectations.

The Old Mill at Rose Valley is the most beautiful venue in all of Delaware County. I searched several locations and this was a gem. Conner Catering has been passed down from generation to generation, and they provide all the services at the Old Mill. I wanted a unique wedding, and when I went to other venues, they had a tendency to tell me what I wanted and how things should be done. My first meeting with Mr. Conner, he told me that it was my day and he would do whatever I wanted. Mr. Conner paired with such a lovely location was the obvious choice, and my guests raved about it. The food was great, we had a very unique wedding, and a gorgeous location. Mr. Conner gave suggestions when needed, and his vendor recommendations were right on the money. Speaking of money, his prices were much lower than other places, but the value was much better than I could have ever imagined. The Old Mill is the whole package and you can make it what you want it to be as long as you want your venue to be breathtaking! I would HIGHLY recommend having your wedding here: you will be in good hands. I would suggest using his recommended vendors, they were all fantastic, and take his advice--he knows the place the best.

We were married at The Old Mill, where Conner Catering is the exclusive caterer, and all that meant was it was one less vendor I had to find! All of the great reviews for Conner Catering spoke of how great his food and service was, and they didn't disappoint! The only thing I heard from some guests is that they only got a few of the hors d'oeuvres when we had 12 different options, so that would be my biggest critique. I would definitely recommend Conner Catering for your upcoming event!

I had my wedding June 8th at The Old Mill, where Conner Catering is the exclusive caterer. The wedding was absolutely everything we had hoped for. Donald Conner and I had 3 sit-down meetings to plan different aspects of the wedding including food, linens, room set-up, which they will do to your preference. Mr. Conner has experience and skill in the business, he freely offers his suggestions for what he knows will work, and entertains your ideas for the type of event you want. He is up-front about extra charges that may be incurred with different things- upgrades to the menu or linens for example. There aren't any surprises at the end. On the day of the wedding I was contacted regarding back-up plans since bad weather threatened, and the staff were very helpful and accommodating on the day of the wedding making sure everything was the way we wanted. Jeanne Conner and the event coordinator were very sweet and helpful in organization on the day of. Our guests raved about the food and reported that all of the employees were kind and courteous during our event. The only reason I took of half of a star was because sometimes it was tough to get email responses but in person we got through everything there was to discuss.

My guests were raving about the food. It was abundant and delicious. Butler service was wonderful and I did not hear one word about not having enough to eat. Many people were asking me who the caterer was. One of the guests called his newly engaged daughter and told her to consider this venue and caterer for her wedding. I also liked that if there was food left over it would be going to one of the area food banks. I do not like waste and that was a plus. Conner Catering also has a gem in Lena. She was on point with everything all day and very helpful at every turn. All of the staff was very professional. If I had another daughter I would not hesitate to come back to the Old Mill and Conner Catering. Thank you for making my daughter's wedding all that we had hoped it would be!

I cannot give enough praise to Conner Catering and The Old Mill. My guests raved about the food (which was family style- very unique for a wedding!) and the grounds.

We had our ceremony outside by the creek which was so beautiful. Cocktail hour took place in the 2 courtyard areas of the mill. I couldn't believe how amazing it looked! The candy buffet was set up in one of the courtyards and looked so nice! By far, the best I've seen at a wedding. The cheesecake martini station looked fabulous and was delcious. The reception took place inside and with the stone walls and rustic look, it was exactly what I was going for. I loved that I didn't have to describe every little detail about how I wanted it to look. They are very experienced and don't require a hundred meetings to know how you want your wedding to look. It is also the perfect place to get creative and add your own little touches.

The food was incredible. We had 15 passed hor dourves which is more than you usually get at a wedding. In addition, we had a station of cheeses, veggies, assorted dips, etc. I could go on and on about the presentation of everything! For our entrees, we had filet, pecan crusted chicken and shrimp scampi. The family style was perfect to give everyone a chance to try each entree rather than only getting one option. It also moved dinner along a little faster so people had more time to party. I actually did eat at the wedding and loved everything! My husband is a picky eater but he raved about the food. The mashed potatoes were the best we've ever had! I'd highly recommend family style to those who want to try something a little different. Even with all the food we had, it was very reasonable in price. Conner Catering will work within your budget when it comes to choosing your meals. People told us it was the best wedding they've been to and we did not break the bank to do it. The service on the day of was awesome. The women who took care of my husband and I was so accomodating and nice. She really went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed.

If you are looking to plan a wedding at a unique venue at an afforable price, I'd highly recommend The Old Mill and Conner Catering!

Our wedding was at the Old Mill (Rose Valley, PA) and Conner Catering is the sole caterer at this venue. Not only is the venue itself one of the most secluded and unique places, but it's absolutely beautiful. Our ceremony was outside in the courtyard, they also have a grassy area by a stream, and an indoor option. It was a pretty disgusting morning on our wedding day, but Don and his team didn't pull the "make a decision at 10am for your ceremony location at 4pm", his team kept an eye on the radar and set the chairs up outside and were ready at a moments notice to move them if necessary... there's a golf course a few miles away they keep in touch with for weather updates! The venue is worth every penny, and it's charming and has every ounce of charachter you'd ever want.

The food selection we got to choose from was absolutely insane! We ended up choosing 12 butlered hors d'oeuvres with a family style meal, followed by our cake and a sweets table. The quality of food is exceptional and is extremely original -- Don's passion for the food really shows on the plate as well as his menu in print. The hope for our wedding day dinner was that the food would be as far from cliche 'filet or chicken breast' as we could possibly get. Everyone felt as if we were eating at a 5 star restaurant (for a VERY competetive price per person comparable to weddings at mansions or country clubs), rather than an assembly line catered dinner you might find at a country club type venue. There are a million different entrees to pick from, and no matter what you choose or how you choose to have dinner served (buffet, sit down or family style) you are guaranteed to have your guests chowin' down on some of the most delicious dinner they won't stop raving about!!

Our wedding cake also was provided by a baker through Conner Catering, and was absolutely delish! I'm not a fondant kindof gal, so we went the butter cream route... all we did was choose the flavors we wanted, and a photo of what I wanted. I chose a white butter cream 3 layer cake from Martha Stewar with little dots going up the layers to look like little bubbles... and requested it be square. Not only was the cake *exactly* like the photo in square layers, it was the tastiest wedding cake!!

I would absolutely recommend Don Conner and his catering team, they are a great helpful staff, who make every effort to make your day special. He is extremely passionate, and made a true effort to understand what my husband and I really wanted and gave us exactly what we asked for and even more!!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Old Mill and used Conner Catering as the exclusive caterer. The Conner Catering staff was absolutely wonderful! Our guests raved about how courteous and helpful everyone was. As for the wedding party, as soon as we pulled into The Old Mill, there was a lady waiting for us with a tray of hours d'oeuvres since we could not participate in cocktail hour. We had family style pass the plate for dinner, and our guests loved that too because they didn't have to chose a dish or get up for buffet style. And most importantly, the food was fantastic yet reasonable. We had the pumpkin ravioli, stuffed chicken and prime rib. As for communication, we felt Donald was hard to get in touch with in the months leading up to the wedding, but when he provided his cell number it made things a bit easier. And, the week of the wedding he was very responsive so it turned out fine. Overall, a great experience for us and our guests!

Beautiful ceremony in the Bamboo Garden followed by a gorgeous reception in the Old Mill. We had a rustic wedding with burlap table runners and large burlap bows on chairs with lots and lots of candles. Connor catering worked with us to ensure all our choices for linens/chairs, etc delivered the Rustic Elegance we were looking for. Our 160 guests are still talking about our wedding being the best wedding they have ever attended. We served the dinner meal family style to ensure lots of choices and plenty of food (which there was). The only issue was guests complained some of the food was not warm through the center (like the stuffed flounder); however, had they complained when served instead of after the wedding, I'm sure it would have been corrected. Overall, Connor Catering still gets a 5 star from us.

We had our wedding at The Old Mill a few weeks ago. It truly was a magical day. Our ceremony was originally supposed to take place outdoors in the wooded area at The Old Mill. Due to a last minute thunderstorm that popped up about an hour before the ceremony was set to begin, we had no choice but to move it inside. Don Conner and his staff were so quick to transform the ballroom (which had already been set up for the reception), into a beautiful ceremony site, which ended up being more intimate than I could have imagined.
Our cocktail hour and reception were impeccable. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Following the ceremony, the lead server got my husband and I drinks and made a special plate of hors d'oeuvres for us to eat quickly before heading to cocktail hour (which was perfect because we were starving at that point)! Our dinner was served family style. The staff made sure that everyone had enough food, and paid special attention to our guests with food allergies. Friends and family are still telling us how delicious the food was.
Don Conner knows his stuff. He was flexible and willing to work within our budget, and even make a few last minute changes. The staff at Conner Catering knows exactly how to make your wedding vision a reality, and we couldn't be more grateful to them for making our wedding day a dream come true.

Conner Catering was exceptional. Although there were a few minor bumps earlier in the day, the team corrected the issues and gave us an excellent event. Catering is mainly about the food, right? Conner knocked it out of the park with both quality and quantity. Don suggested the "family style" feeding, which proved to be a big hit. I would gladly recommend Conner Catering to a friend or associate.

Conner Catering was fantastic - we still hear raves about the venue (The Old Mill in Rose Valley) and the food at our reception (especially the cheesesteak eggrolls). We have heard "that was the best wedding I've ever been to" numerous times from guests. The manager for our wedding, Lena, was extremely helpful and made everything go seamlessly on the wedding day. Whatever we needed, Lena had it for us before we even asked. The owner, Donald, was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. We really loved the flexibility - the menu was completely customizable and featured very unique options. The choice of linens and chairs was something that we weren't offered anywhere else, and Donald's knowledge and experience are priceless. The end product was a reception that truly reflected us. The only thing to note is that Donald was sometimes difficult to reach via email and telephone, at least early in the planning process. This was not an issue closer to the wedding date, but is something for brides to know if quick responses are a concern. Also, we ended up with a ton of leftover cake since the cake was not served to guest tables. I wish I would have known that in advance so that our DJ could have made an announcement for guests. I would highly recommend Conner Catering and would happily go back to them for future events.

Thank you for your review -- we so appreciate hearing from our clients and feel honored that you trusted us with your day. We're thrilled that your guests and you were really happy with everything. We do realize that sometimes in the early stages of planning our response time could improve and we are working feverishly on that. Donald insists on meeting and planning with each and every client himself so that as the wedding gets closer, every little detail is worked out, leaving little room for mistake and miscommunication. Our approach is very different from the routine of most caterers and we do not involve alot of salespeople and contacts -- hence our "boutique" reputation. Thank you for your review and we will be working feverishly towards better initial response time. Wishing you many years of good health and happiness.

Overall, our experience with Conner Catering was excellent. Our guests are still raving about the appetizers and entrees. The evening of the affair, everything that we had requested done, was exactly in place. I just feel that the matre d' should have been communicating more with the DJ to advise him to make announcements, i.e. dessert had been served, and that there were gift bags at door.

Conner Catering did my wedding at the Tribute House in March 2010. He was respectful of my budget, very professional, honest, and provided amazing food. (not that I ate much, but I've heard raves about it!)

I was on a tight budget, so it was wonderful to have someone respond to my inquiries actually WITHIN my budget--as if they had actually took the time to read my inquiry. In addition, he was flexible with times to meet and go over the details. The night-of coordinator was fabulous and really kept the evening flowing smoothly, even after a small snafu with my seating chart after some family flew in last minute. I also really liked their attention to the environment and local food (when available). Overall, excellent service from a family company.

We can't say enough good things about Conner Catering. The food at the wedding is still getting rave reviews and let's not forget about the impeccable presentation. The service during our reception was outstanding and professional. Donald Conner is a pleasure to work with--he can make any vision you have for your wedding food and atmosphere into reality, and guides you along the way. This speaks to his excellent experience in this industry. Donald is your point of contact throughout the entire planning process. This means he may be difficult to reach at times, but he will get back to you and is always willing to meet or have a phone conversation to verify everything. Our reception was everything we hoped it would be, and we have Conner Catering to thank for that.

Thank you for noting that Donald is always the point of contact throughout the entire planning process so the client isn't dealing with sales people who come and go. We have found that this does sometimes make our response times a little slower, but it also leaves little room for mistake or miscommunication when dealing with a company's sales person that might not be there when it's time for your event. For 4 generations we've believed that working closely with the owner is the key to a flawless event, along with fabulous food, presentation and management.

Thank you and wishing you many years of happiness and good health.

Was extremely flexible. We wanted a Victorian high tea and he was accommodating. He also helped me with my planning and offered great advice as far as what guests would enjoy.

We had our wedding at the Old Mill, catering etc. by Conner Catering. Everything that I ate (which was everything that was on the menu/everything at cocktail hour) was THE BEST I've ever eaten at a wedding. Everything that they did was great, I couldn't recommend this company more.

Our wedding on 6/15/13 at the Old Mill in Rose Valley, PA was perfect! After 15 months of planning, my expectations were high. Conner Catering did a great job facilitating everything for us. The food was fabulous and everyone has been raving about it since the wedding. The calamari and crab cake hors d'oeuvres were so good that I'm not sure how any others will live up to them. I would recommend Conner Catering to any of my engaged friends!

Don knows exactly what he is doing. If you are a hands off bride he is perfect. He makes sure everything is easy and perfect and will handle it all for you if you want him to. The food was amazing and he made sure we had everything we needed. Keeps your budget in mind also which is helpful.

I used Conner catering for my August wedding. Don is fabulous to work with. He is very responsive and knows the business inside and out. I felt 100% confident with all of his recommendations and suggestions. He and his staff set up my wedding day perfectly and I could not have asked for better. The only problem I had was with the maitre'd. She was rude to my entire bridal party, my husband, and my husband's family. I am still getting complaints about her weeks after my wedding! Steer clear of her, and Conner is the way to go!

Just had my wedding at The Old Mill. The venue was absolutely fabulous, they did a great job putting up my decorations as described. The food was amazing. Everyone was incredibly surprised by the amount and the quality of the appetizers during cocktail hour. The food during dinner was great. We had a smores bar and the guests loved it. Donald can be a bit hard to get a hold of when your event is further off, but he was better when the time was closer. Would definitely recommend this venue and caterer for further brides!!!

The quality and quantity of the food provided at my wedding was perfect! Even weeks later, guests are still raving about the hors d'oeuvres and family style meal that our caterer provided. The caterer planned out each detail in advance with me, making the actual event stress-free. Set up and take down was done swiftly and efficiently and almost completely without notice! If you are looking for creativity, delicious food, and a high level of professionalism...Conner Catering is the way to go!

Wonderful! The food was amazing and the presentation even more so. They orchestrated the day for us so it also felt like they were my wedding planners. The wedding was not at the Old Mill, but at Bolingbroke Mansion which they work at often -- they are a great combo!

Conner Catering has the most delicious food, choices, and services at your event. It's amazing quality and has excellent prices. However, the owner is often hard to get a hold of and does not respond to emails (he prefers text messages)

Conner Catering responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review. Without knowing the date or place of your wedding or your name, it is kind of hard to address the issues you raised in your Review. We take all criticism seriously and would like to speak with you personally about your concerns. You note the food and service were very good the date of your wedding, but that we tried to make extra money? We do not have "package deals" for any catering we do, and everything is customized according to each client's budget. In all fairness, if it was something additional you wanted to add or wanted to upgrade your selections after our pricing was quoted, that's completely up to each client -- with no pressure from our end. Sometimes we do get so hectic that I am not as quick to respond as I would like to be, but I always get back to my clients and find it hard to believe that I never did? Again, I would love to speak with you about this personally. Please contact our office at your earliest convenience.

On the day itself there were a few details that were left out which we expressly mentioned the day before. One issue was the tea lights in the centerpieces weren't included due to fire restrictions not expressed to us by the caterer. Another was the display for the table seating, which wasn't executed according to our design. The staff was very willing to correct these mistakes, but if initial direction was followed the details wouldn't have been missed. However, these are splitting hairs. This company offers amazing service overall and people are still talking about the food nine months later!

The good - the food was amazing! Everything was absolutely delicious. The presentation was amazing, too. Tons of variety and choices. Had so many compliments about the food - people are still talking about it! The reception ran like clockwork, too.

The bad - Somewhat unresponsive. Don had an emergency come up at the last minute and was there to set up, but apparently left and someone else who I had never met before was in charge. Completely understandable, but would have appreciated having Don explain this to me instead of someone I had never met. Regardless, the stand-in did a good job. The other thing is a couple things went missing after the reception - not sure if they were thrown away or what. Tried to contact caterer, but never got a response.

Venue was gorgeous and the food was delicious. The caterer was very difficult to receive a response from...average attempts to contact him about a question was at least 3 attempts. During the day of the wedding some appetizers we had ordered were missing and when asked the response was it was not on your contract but we have a copy and it is on ours and I did not think that I had to bring a copy of the contract to our wedding since we had a meeting months before and the appetizers that we requested were on there.The event coordinator the catering company has the day of the wedding at times was unprofessional. The event coordinator approached the groom and I minutes before being announced at the reception about an issue of two family members not sitting in assigned seats...I felt that is not an urgent issue to interrupt us about especially since I provided a seating chart with everyone's names and seating assignment to the company before the wedding. Again the guests had a fabulous time and enjoyed the food and that is what matters. If you decide to go with connor catering for your wedding please get everything in writing and stay organized. I created a folder just for the caterer and had everything in date order because they deal with some many venues they are forgetful.
