Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! For the past 13 years full circle catering has proudly provided delicious, homemade food, conscientiously prepared, innovatively presented by an exquisitely trained staff while running an event that is as stress-free as possible.

Internationally I am 1 of only 6 certified green caterers by the Green Restaurant Association© and with that in mind I cook all my food, shop for groceries locally without using a restaurant service, and pick out the freshest ingredients, often local and many times organic. Please visit my website to read further about my environmental commitment.

I will present you with upscale, unique, custom designed menus after we discuss your big day—themes, aims, and budgetary concerns. I will work with you, and your family, to develop a plan for a day that brings friends and family together to celebrate YOU without stress and fuss! From those early planning days come many months of my fine tuning your menu and logistics of the reception while you move on to focus on other parts of your event. Should you need further help—from rentals, florists, local information on dress alterations to manicures—my 9 years of event coordination is at your disposal and I am frequently hired, not as caterer, but as wedding day and dress rehearsal coordinator. I am ready to jump into your reception and wedding planning in whatever capacity you need.

And finally I guarantee you no negative surprises! The food will be as planned—yummy and garnished and plattered as discussed. My staff will be attentive and pleasant. My bill will hold no secret taxes or add-ons. And you and your new spouse will leave the event with a re-usable, insulated picnic basket filled with reception samples as my gift to you. If you are ready for personalized service give me a call or shoot me an email I will be happy to welcome you to the full circle catering family.

We loved working with Jenny through our wedding process! She helped coordinate all aspects of our reception. She had great suggestions for local vendors that were very reliable. Jenny's knowledge made the process easy and helped make our wedding day perfect!

She makes the most wonderful food that our guests are still talking about! I would highly recommend using Jenny and her team for any event!

Jenny and Full Circle Catering were a most wonderful addition to our wedding. Not only was she attentive to our needs and respectful of our wishes, but was also supportive, offered great ideas, handled our day-of coordinating, and was willing to be flexible with some last minute changes. Most importantly, the food was deliciously amazing!

Jenny was absolutely fabulous. The food was incredible. We reviewed three different caterers before meeting Jenny, all of whom offered very boring, bland suggestions. Jenny came up with incredibly creative selections that suited the level of elegance of the occassion and were perfect for a hot summer evening wedding. All of our guests were raving for weeks over how incredible the food was. Furthermore, I did not hire a wedding planner, because I didn't like the idea of having someone plan it all for me, however as things got under way, I understood the benefits of having someone prepared to handle last minute disasters and keep things running smoothly. Even though she was hired as a caterer only, Jenny was amazing about jumping in when I asked her for help and handled several minor disasters (extra people coming, last minute drop outs, etc.) that came up, even without my (the bride's) knowledge! She handled everything quietly and professionally and no one, even myself, knew that anything had happened. Jenny made my "big day" perfect and was so professional and flexible with planning leading up to it.

I loved working with Jenny Elmes and the rest of her wonderful crew. My husband and I had no idea what we were doing, and she helped make the whole day a breeze. She certainly went above and beyond the call of just catering! And the food! We are still getting compliments on her creations months later. We will definitely be calling them again next time we need anything catered.

Full Circle Catering (Jenny and her staff) were amazing! We would not have had such a special and successful wedding without them. The food was incredible, my friends and family still comment about how delicious everything was. Jenny and her team were so easy to work with - very organized, efficient, calming ... they were perfect. Aside from the wonderful food they also had a lot of creative ideas and helped tremendously with the overall flow of our wedding. I can not thank them enough! We were also very impressed by their "Green" habits of using local food, recycling... They were the best decision I made in my wedding process!!! I highly recommend Full Circle Catering!

We were doing long-distance planning for our wedding, so responsiveness to e-mails was important. Jenny at Full Circle catering was not only very slow to respond to e-mails, but also very terse and unprofessional. She created more problems when she demanded a separate tent and work area, even though the venue was already fully equipped for catering, with ample kitchen facilities. The positive thing is that the food was organic and mostly local and seasonal, but it was not all well-seasoned and could have tasted better. We had salmon as part of our menu, and we did get a lot of very positive feedback about that dish. Overall, full circle catering has the right values and type of food that we support, but the staff has a long way to go towards friendliness and professionalism.

Thank you for the constructive comments. I always welcome both positive and negative feedback of my business. After reviewing your reception, I used the missteps and omissions in communication to create a pre-event checklist that will better serve my clients and help me prepare properly for each event. This will clearly state expectations--on both sides of the reception--so that when we arrive on site we can work efficiently, and happily, and effectively to do the job we were hired to do! Best to both of you on a wonderful marriage!
