Gooseberries (Courtyard Catering)—Mike, if you were on the Green Bay Packers, you would be the Aaron Rodgers of wedding caterers. Your service throughout this whole process was top notch. From driving to the Riviera with us to help with our layout, to serving me a ton of different kinds of chicken until it was just right, to the wonders of the brat and a shot appetizer, you blew me away. I’ll never figure out how you serve around 300 people, on schedule, with hot food, and make it look so seamless, but I’m so grateful to you and your staff. What a knack you have for food combinations, for customer service, and for making every little need we had a reality. Thank you!

Using this caterer was one of two "glitches" in our whole wedding experience. We were thoroughly disappointed. As mother of the bride, I just had that feeling in my gut that we should have gone with a different caterer (who we had reserved). My daughter was so sick and tired of appointments and Chef Mike presented himself beautifully at the 2013 bridal show at the docks in Lake Geneva. He is quite the charmer. So, we booked them.
They refused to allow us to do a tasting-red flag number one.

Trish was very nice to work with over the phone, very helpful and really sold me. But, as time went on, many mistakes and misunderstandings transpired due to them not being competent!

For instance, we were told we could have pizza as out late night snack. One week before the wedding, they tell us that the pizza place they use only delivers until 10:00 (I am sure they already knew this!). We wanted the snack to be a bit later, closer to midnight. Chef Mike assured me they would serve mini brats and mini hotdogs. Well, they ended up serving cut up regular old hot dogs. Chef Mike should have told us this when we met with him in January, before he had all of our money!

Trish had written down all along that we were reserving linens (which we picked out with Chef Mike in January) through them. One week before the wedding, they tell me they were not providing linens. I was ready to pull my hair out! Thankfully, the rental company was able to pull through for us.

People complained that their food )asparagus and mashed potatoes) were ice cold. Also, the Vegan meals were dried out and crusty and too tough to cut with a knife. tHis all got back to me after the reception.

They did not serve the cake, therefore guests did not even know where it was and half of them did not get cake!

I do not feel this company is qualified to cater large weddings unless it is a very casual affair, maybe a pig roast or buffet. My daughter, son-in-law and I were terribly disappointed.

All the people at Gooseberries were amazing! The lady I talked to the most was Trish (I don't know about spelling) and she was amazing. Really gave me some good combinations to try and they had so much to offer...yellow cake, white cake, chocolate cake, fresh strawberries, raspberry jam, supreme cream, real buttercream frosting, etc. I tried other bakeries in the area and had tastings....trust me nothing is even close when it comes to the taste or quality than these guys!!!! They were absolutely amazing!!!

Gooseberries did an outstanding job with our wedding cakes. They offered a wide variety of cake combinations that we had to order all the specialty cakes they offered and put one on each of our guest tables. Our guest absolutely loved it! They spent the evening trying different cakes and there was nothing left over to worry about taking home.

Gooseberries floral did an outstanding job with our Bouquets, Boutonnieres and Corsages for out wedding. The staff was wonderful to work with during the consultation and were up front and honest about the cost of flowers. They were so knowledgeable about all flowers they could recommend alternatives if you had a budget to keep. The service the provided our wedding day was wonderful and full of smiles as they pinned all the Boutonnieres and handed out all the Bouquets and Corsages to the parents and wedding party.

Although Gooseberries is a quality store and has amazing food, we were slightly disappointed when it came time to eat.
We had order snap peas as one of our sides, we assumed they would be cooked (we were too short on time to do a tasting, our fault on that), they were served cold and raw.

And our bowtie pesto pasta with seasonal veggies, was served with no veggies.

Chef Mike and the gooseberries team provided phenomenal service for our wedding. We had a tasting months before our wedding and had a hard time deciding what to pick for our meal choices because everything was SO delicious. Gooseberries will truly do everything an anything they can to make you wedding day visions come true and are excellent to work with. Our guests were amazed by how wonderful the food was. I highly recommend Gooseberries/ Courtyard Catering for your event. We had them for a buffet at our rehearsal dinner, and then a plated dinner at our wedding, both were fabulous and the staff were all so nice. Thank you Gooseberries.

You know when you had good food at your wedding when two months later people are still coming up and talking about the catering and cake. You also know when a company is great when they do no advertisement for their catering and rely simply on word of mouth.

Gooseberries went above and beyond for our special day. We were able to taste test all of the food for no cost and the secretary made sure to put our cake and food tasting all in the same day so we would not have to run around. They were also very reasonable with their prices and Chef Mike was completely honest with what food would work great for our time of year and theme.

The day of the wedding the food was completely delicious. The catering staff personally assigned a staff member to assist my husband and myself! They even dished up our food!

I would highly recommend their mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese!

Dawn did an EXCELLENT job with my flowers. They were so incredibly beautiful. Our venue did not allow candles, and I really did not want to have the flameless candles, so Dawn came up with a suggestion that worked really well and was stunning at the same time. She created two different centerpieces and alternated them on each of the tables. Half of the tables had large fishbowl shaped vases and the others had tall cylinder vases. All of the centerpieces had long wispy willow branches and flowers tucked in throughout the centerpiece. In the bottom of each of the vases, Dawn put a submersible colored LED light in a pale yellow, that really make the centerpieces glow in an elegant way.

The bouquets were so much more beautiful than I could have even imagined. She used pale yellow roses, viking mums, white hydrangea and nice green accents to create a country-chic bridal bouquet. All of the bridesmaids bouquets complimented mine very nicely.

Gooseberries did our floral, cake and food service for our wedding.

Food: The food was amazing and we were running 1 hour late for dinner yet it was still fresh and hot. Our guests went out of their way to tell us how great their food was. When was the last time you were at a wedding and had a great meal. Chef Mike and his crew did an amazing job.

Floral: I had chosen Gerber daisies and Callie lilies for my flowers. I guess the daisies that came in weren't all of the best quality so they upgraded my boutineers to the lilies but didn't charge me any additional money. They still looked great and nobody even noticed that they weren't supposed to be that way. The heat got to my bouquets really quickly and they didn't last much passed the ceremony but it was 96 degrees outside and that is to be expected. Overall they did a great job and they were really great to work with. Much of our contact was via email since we own 2 businesses ourselves and they were more than happy to accommodate.

Cake: We went with a nut free carrot cake with butter cream and fondunt. One side of the cake was a little melted (96 degrees) it was bound to happen but they did a great job so that we could have one side that was perfect. plus it tasted amazing. Our colors were white, ivory and black and they used a black floral ribbon instead of anything edible so that the heat didn't make it run all of over the cake. They know what they are doing and it was a great cake.

Thank you so much Brittney, Chef Mike, Angela and all of the rest of the staff at Gooseberries. You made our wedding spectacular!!!

I have to admit that I was extremely nervous about having to select flowers for my wedding. My main thought was "OMG, I'm going to drop a boatload of money on flowers, and the cost is going to be ridiculous!" This was not the case with Exclusively Yours Floral at Gooseberries Market - Dawn was incredibly helpful and HONEST - I felt so comfortable working with her because she didn't charge a fortune and she suggested many ways in which I could save money (as opposed to spending more). Not to mention that my flowers were GORGEOUS!!! I would recommend her to anyone :)
