My daughter and new son-in-law were married on 10/4/14 at the Fairmount Rowing Club on Boathouse Row in Philadelphia. They worked with Mike Schmidt and the wedding reception was fantastic. Mike and Diverse staff could not have been more attentive and welcoming to all of the wedding guests.
The food was delicious - well presented and no matter where you were in the Boathouse the staff found you to offer scrumptious hors d'oeuvres. Dinner was served family style with fall vegetables, pumpkin ravioli, moist seasoned chicken and beef.
Mike Schmidt kept festivities going on a subtle time line - and the evening flew by.
The bar staff were jovial and very efficient. No lines waiting for a cocktail or draft beer.
At the end of the evening - the Fairmount Rowing Club was returned to original order and you would not have known that a wedding reception was held in the Club.
I work in a church in Villanova and we use caterers frequently. Diverse Catering now ranks at the top of my list for terrific service and value.

Not only did Diverse Catering provide delicious food, incredible staffing for the event, amazing event planners, and more, Mike served also as a therapist on the side during a very anxiety provoking time!!!! I loved working with Mike and Diverse Catering as a whole. Everyone who attended the event would not stop raving about the food, the table layout, and overall ambiance created by Diverse Catering! I highly recommend Diverse to anyone planning ANY event!!!

My husband and I met with five potential caterers during our planning process and none tasted nearly as good (not even the several that were more costly) as what Ken prepared for us. On top of the fact that we wanted our food to be delicious, we also had to work around the obstacles presented by having our wedding for 170 guests in our parent’s backyard. Ken made us feel confident in his abilities to get the job done and helped add to the vision we already had. He brought up many amazing ideas – food and decor related – that I hadn’t thought of on my own and that truly made our day all the better. He was patient in explaining every angle and scenario to our family well in advance. He made several trips out to the house to see the venue and stood in the rain outside measuring areas for tables and tents all with a smile. He coordinated the order of our rentals from multiple locations to ensure we received what we wanted at the best price. He constantly asked how we were feeling throughout the process. He set the tone that this was our wedding and his goal was for us to have the best time possible. His staff was extremely attentive, professional and friendly. Guests not only commented on the amazing food but also on smiling servers that undoubtedly contributed to the overall happiness of the day. I truly can’t give a high enough endorsement of Diverse. Ken is passionate about his work, sincere about helping a couple get what they want and more than capable of orchestrating a flawless wedding. We had power issues during our wedding and Ken not only made sure the food was out on time and hot but also resolved the power trouble for our band, while managing our space heaters. He was 10 places at once the whole night and our guests never knew it. Diverse didn’t just provide us food for our wedding; they provided on-site coordination that couldn’t have been topped. I am absolutely certain our wedding would not have been nearly as well executed had we chosen anyone else.

Mike at Diverse Catering deserves all 5 stars. The food was incredible, his staff was attentive and fun and my husband and I knew we were in good hands every time we met with Mike. Mike had to bring in a kitchen to our reception site (Boathouse Row) and set up completely out of site. I have had multiple people tell me that the food was the best wedding food they have ever had, a huge compliment!

I would recommend Diverse Catering to any bride and groom, especially those who want delicious food, excellent service and to put their wedding into expert hands.

We used Diverse Catering and Event Design for our daughter's wedding. I cannot thank Ken Correll and his entire staff for everything they did that made our daughter and son in law's wedding such a wonderful event. In addition to the food tasting delicious, we want to be sure to let everyone here know how much effort Ken gave in advance of the wedding with the "event planning" part of his business. In addition to communications via email and phone, Ken met with us a a couple of times in advance, and when he met with us, we were never rushed. His suggestions were well thought out, creative, and when the wedding day arrived, it was clear how great his ideas were. Everything from suggestions on the wedding ceremony itself to the decor and design elements were all made in a way that took into account our wishes--they were never forced.
Finally, his team that worked for the event could not have been better. In addition to the quality of their work, every person we met from that team was incredibly friendly. It was clear that they wanted the wedding day to be special. They also went to great lengths to insure that some of the older guests with physical limitations were taken care of. At the end of the evening and throughout the next day, we kept hearing from our family and friends who wanted to tell us what a wonderful wedding it was, and how much fun they had.
As I told Ken afterwards, our daughter and son in law were thrilled with the entire afternoon and night—and in the end, what more can the parents of the bride ask for?

We met mike over a year and a half ago when searching for a caterer for our 250 person wedding. Mike impressed us with her professionalism, flexibility, and great food and service. Throughout the time that we worked with him he met us multiple times to go over details and planning. He was so much more than a caterer but an event planner. He even came to our rehearsal to run it for us. I did not have to worry on the day of the wedding and I knew things would be taken care of. There were maybe a few minor issues on the day of but everything was taken care of quickly.

After reading all of the awesome reviews of the Diverse team, we knew we had found the right company for us. We wanted food that was different from the typical food you would get at a standard catered event. We wanted something that reflected our style and taste. Mike, Rick, and their team were all extremely easy to work with. They were a comprehensive catering and event design company and helped us with everything from arranging our loose bulk flowers for the centerpieces as well as the ceremony space, to ceremony chair rentals, to coordinating the order of events and cuing our wedding party during the actual day. They helped us plan and execute our day and we cannot thank them enough. We have heard nothing but compliments on the food and service from family and friends and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

We used Diverse Catering and Event Design for our wedding and I am so incredibly happy with everything they did for us. From the very beginning, Ken Correll was thorough and attentive and helped us to figure out exactly what we wanted to include. He met with us several times and did numerous walk throughs at our venue (Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia PA) to map out exactly where everything would go and the flow of events. For food, we had international stations (Cuban, French and Eastern European) and it was AMAZING. Everyone was raving about how delicious everything tasted. Even more importantly, I was blown away by how truly cordial the entire Diverse Catering event staff was towards our friends and family. I saw Ken himself making my grandmother (who is in a wheelchair) a plate! They were truly remarkable and went above and beyond to help us plan, and execute, the wedding of our dreams. It would not have happened without Diverse Catering and Event Design and I would absolutely recommend them to everyone.

We were lucky to work with both Ken and Mike for our wedding at the Free Library in Philadelphia last weekend. Not only are they fantastic caterers, but they are both wonderfully nice people that made us feel instantly comfortable with them. They were very flexible and open to our suggestions; it was clear from the beginning that they pride themselves on delivering a quality, custom experience for the couples that they work with. We didn't have a wedding planner, but it turns out we didn't need one because Ken and Mike knew our venue inside and out. We didn't worry about a thing because we knew we were in very capable hands. That kind of peace of mind on such a hectic day is priceless.

And the food! It was delicious, diverse, and plentiful. We got so many compliments about how fantastic the food was, both during the cocktail hour and for dinner itself. These guys can make pretty much anything. We had three stations: PA Dutch Harvest, Italian, and Moroccan. The food was different enough at each station that there was something for everyone, though quite a few guests told us that they tried a little bit of everything from each station, all to rave reviews.

I also wanted to say how fantastic the rest of the staff was as well. Everyone was incredibly helpful and they worked really well as a team. I can't say enough good things about this company. We're recommending them to all of our friends who are getting married -- partially so that we can eat more of their delicious food, but also because Ken and Mike deserve all the success in the world.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Diverse Catering. Ken and Mike were wonderful to work with. When we first met with Ken and started planning our wedding, he tipped us off to some other great vendors that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. He understood our vision and helped us create a wedding better than we could have ever hoped for! The week leading up to the wedding, the forecast was not looking great. Ken and Mike were in constant contact with us, updating us on the inclement weather plans. I knew that we would be in good hands even if it rained!

The day of the wedding, Mike was present the ENTIRE time, working harder than anyone there! They went above and beyond for us, to make sure that everything was just as we wanted and that we had a great time. The reception was beyond stunning and the staff were extremely friendly. Some of our guests commented that the staff was so friendly and welcoming that it felt like they were eating at a friend's house.
Mike and Ken are caterers, but they are almost like wedding planners! They set up all of our decorations and tables, and really made everything look spectacular.

I can't say enough how glad we were to have used them for our wedding!!!!
