We are so happy that we chose Creative Cuisines to cater our wedding. They did an absolutely amazing job. Chef Steve is incredible and the food was wonderful! We had several guests say it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. And some are still telling us how much they enjoyed it. We went with a buffet and the food remained hot and delicious throughout. The staff was very friendly and attentive as well!

We started our planning early so figuring out everything from the menu to renting the linens and place setting was a breeze.

I highly recommend Creative Cuisines and Chef Steve!

When I was choosing a wedding date, the availability of Chef Steve was a deciding factor for the exact date. No other caterer can match his talents. Communication was imperative, and he promptly answered emails, and phone calls. We met several times to create the menu, design the table arrangement at the venue, and enjoy a sample tasting of the menu. The entire process went smoothly, and I would eagerly recommend him.

When we started working with Steve Munday of Creative Cuisines last winter, he seemed too good to be true. He responded to emails with thorough, thoughtful answers. He worked with our schedule (we live in Seattle and he's in VA), often talking with me in the evenings or on the weekends. When we traveled to Williamsburg in June for wedding planning purposes, he met us at our venue, walked us through the various rooms and explained options for how each could be used, and coordinated a visit to Williamsburg Events Rentals where he stayed with us as we looked at plates, linens, and flatware.

With respect to menu planning, Steve was collaborative and incorporated our ideas, like featuring Washington wines. He designed a tremendous menu that was within our budget, and when we looked to be off budget because we wanted a pricier beverage service, he provided options for how to cut costs.

As the wedding neared, Steve helped with the logistics, allowing us to drop off flowers and other items at his site the day before the wedding. (There was a wedding at the Alumni House the day before our wedding, so we couldn't store things there.)

The day of our wedding, Steve and his staff exceeded our expectations. All guests talked about the food, with most talking about selections that my husband and I had chosen months ago but didn't get to eat the day of. We knew the food would be exquisite, but the service was even better. Steve personally attended to a family member with limited mobility, bringing him food throughout the night. Patty helped us cut the cake, and other servers were so great that guests tipped them throughout the night.

Creative Cuisines was not the cheapest option we explored, but it is the best value. We more or less got catering, event rentals facilitated by Steve, and day-of-coordination services with Creative Cuisines. Truly, we could not have asked for a better caterer for our October 11, 2015 wedding!

Steve and his team at Creative Cuisines were EXCELLENT. Prior to the wedding Steve customized a menu based around food that my wife and I told him we'd like to have at our ideal wedding. He created a very impressive menu incorporating what we requested and all the dishes were so delicious! Steve went above and beyond to not only coordinate the food, but also help to design the floor plan for the day of and coordinated the set up of the chairs etc. He has a very laid back attitude which helped keep us at ease while designing the menu and day of logistics.

We asked for there to be Chicago style hot dogs as the late night snack for our wedding and Steve did all the research to even find out the specific manufacturer of hot dogs that are used in Chicago so he could have an authentic late night snack! We were very impressed.

Often, food doesn't translate well when brought to large scale catering, but they did an outstanding job of blowing our expectations out of the water. EVERYONE was raving about the food. On top of that, their staff was so friendly, attentive and generally fun to have around at the wedding. Couldn't have asked for better caterer to make our wedding that much more specials. If you need a vendor for your wedding catering - you've just found them.

Steve Munday was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. The menu was incredible and my family is still raving about it weeks later. I booked Creative Cuisines in the Fall for a Summer wedding. I'm not sure how quickly their schedule fills, but if you're thinking about using them, I wouldn't hesitate to get in touch and at least get penciled in. Steve gets really busy during wedding season, and for good reason!

About two months before the wedding, my (now) husband and I took about 90 minutes and talked through the chef stations and cocktail hour with Steve. He has great sample menus to draw ideas from and he's open to trying things like family recipes or other special dishes. He was also really mindful of our budget and transparent about pricing. I thought the pricing was more than fair for the quality of food, the variety, and the phenomenal service.

I planned this wedding from 1000 miles away. In fact, it had been decades since either my husband or I had attended a wedding, so we really felt clueless. Steve made planning so much easier. He's very responsive to emails and calls. Steve got the rental company to send me photos of the tablecloths so I could approve them from afar, and they ended up looking perfect. He made a seating layout for us and was really flexible when I wanted to change it. I also need to give a shoutout to Patty, who makes everything run smoothly and on time.

Creative Cuisines is a great company, and I can't thank them enough for just the amount of care and detail they put into the wedding.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Chef Steve Munday, owner of Creative Cuisines, when planning our son's rehearsal dinner in Williamsburg, VA. He came highly recommended by our wedding planner and in the reviews we read. We secured Chef Steve's services early in the planning process as we were aware that he would book quickly. Due to our schedule and the fact that we live in Northern Virginia we didn't actually meet Chef Steve in person until the evening of the rehearsal dinner. This said he did an amazing job walking us through all the steps necessary to plan the evening through phone conversations and email. In our early conversations he did a excellent job getting an idea of what we wanted for the evening and gave us suggestions as how to best get our desired outcome. Chef Steve helped us to plan a traditional rehearsal dinner for approximately 80 guests to include a full bar, passed Hors d'oeuvres, salad, plated dinner, a custom made dessert and boxed truffles for each guests. On June 5, 2015 we arrived at the William and Mary Alumni House venue and met Chef Steve and his great staff. As with all previous contacts he was gracious, professional, and left us at ease to simply enjoy the evening as nothing other than guests. Every aspect of the evening to include the food and service was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better overall experience and we continue to receive compliments from the guests in attendance. We would definitely use Chef Steve again.

Unparalleled food! Chef Steve prepared a wedding buffet for our 100 guests which was delicious, beautifully presented, and locally sourced. Not to be missed are the Buttermilk Biscuits with Edwards' Surry Ham, the Crispy Sweet Potato Pancakes topped with Chutney, the Stuffed Chicken Breast, the Carolina Shrimp & Grits, and the Corn Pudding! The food was prepared on-site so was the perfect temperature for the dish. His staff was attentive with one staff member dedicated to the Bride & Groom. Definitely go for the tasting he offers. You will see how knowledgeable he is about Virginia cuisine and how much he cares about the food he prepares.

Chef Steve at Creative Cuisine in Williamsburg did an outstanding job on our wedding! He took care of every detail. The display of hors devours was phenomenal. And the lamb chops were to die for! They were all the rave of the cocktail hour. A friend who attended our wedding, has since become a lamb lover after never having it before! Chef Steve is personable and talented. The dinner service for 120 plated dinners ran smoothly and the food was served hot. I highly recommend Chef Steve at Creative Cuisine as your caterer if you want to enjoy high quality food and service that your guests will talk about for a long time. Thanks Chef Steve!!

Chef Steve had catered both my brother and my sister's weddings, so when it came time to plan my wedding reception it was a no-brainer to book him. Chef Steve is so responsive, professional, and a pleasure to work with. The food was outstanding. If we had to do it all over again we would absolutely have Creative Cuisines cater for us.

A Letter Written to Chef Steve Munday – October, 2014

Dear Chef Steve,
My husband often makes fun of me because when I am excited or overjoyed I will use words in triplicate. Well, the New Orleans style menu you prepared for my son’s reception at the W&M Alumni House deserves more then one set of three.
The wedding guests ran the gamut in food preferences and experiences i.e. foodies and food novices, vegetarians, vegans, meat and potato lovers, those with food allergies and so on. My initial concern was how was the bride and groom’s vision of bringing a taste of New Orleans to Williamsburg going to accommodate the range of guest tastes. Well, Chef Steve, you did it!
There were food selections that each guest could find familiarity and comfort with and food to take a leap and be adventurous with. (Mamaw, for example, was among several guests who had never tasted catfish before and quite enjoyed it.) Everyone’s plate was filled – some more then once. What variety, how delicious, try this it is incredible are among the numerous praises you received, Chef Steve. Several comments were also given on how in some wedding menus vegetable dishes are often an after thought but not so at your table. It was voiced that they were made with care and the results were very tasty.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you Chef Steve for assisting in making our children’s reception a success.
Sincerely,
Phyllis and Kenneth
