I can't say enough about the staff at Marie's, from Victoria and Ericka, to the servers and bartenders at the wedding reception. So great to work with!! The food was delicious and was served in a timely manner. I loved the family style option which offered our guests multiple entree choices without leaving the table to stand in a buffet line, or limiting them to only one entree like a plated dinner would. All of our guests were served dinner at the same time! They did a tremendous job with set up before the ceremony and with clean up at the end of the evening. Our tables looked beautiful, and we were able to take advantage of a free upgrade to China place settings because we hosted our event at Danada House. Thank you for making our daughter and son-in-law's wedding everything they dreamed of!

Thank you to Marie’s Catering for making my wedding so truly special. Everyone who attended my June 20, 2014 wedding at Danada House has raved about the food—most saying it is the best wedding food they ever had. The service was excellent as well. I think the packages were very reasonably priced and they were very accommodating with my menu and room setup requests.

But what I found most important and exceptional about Marie’s was my experience with their Events Coordinator, Ericka Vetter. Ericka is fabulous to work with. She is sweet, helpful, very responsive, organized and knowledgeable. She gave me so many helpful tips and answered over a million questions during the planning process. I cannot thank her enough for her and everyone at Marie’s for their time and help in making my day one of the happiest in my life!

Is it vain to say my wedding had the best food out of any wedding I've ever been to, thanks to Marie's Catering? Maybe. But it's true! Quality food and presentation were a priority for us. I still remember a wedding I went to when I was little, where my mom let me have McDonalds on the drive home because the food was so terrible. I didn't want our wedding to be remembered like that! Marie's was recommended by our venue (The Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet), as well as our DJ. It was definitely a nice perk to have companies that had worked together, especially at a place like the Rialto where everything had to be brought in.

Marie's was excellent from the start. They offered comprehensive packages that included linens, chairs, cake, dessert, etc. One stop shopping! We went with the diamond package, and were so glad we did. Our guests raved about our delicious dessert table (their waist lines probably weren't as happy as they were, ha!). From their online options to our first tasting, we were impressed. They set up a nice little romantic table at their banquet hall and brought out our options - everything was absolutely delicious. On the day of, service was timely and our guests were very happy with the food.
And Ericka, our coordinator. Wow. She was on top of everything. We booked pretty early, and had a lot of changes throughout our planning. She kept track of every little detail, helped us with our coordination, everything. Color swaps, dietary restrictions, last minute changes, limited information from our venue - she handled it all and kept our catering experience stress free. She even helped tweak our day-of timeline to help things flow a bit better, and gave us advice about keeping the wedding in order.
Their albums don't do them justice. I was a little worried about our cake, since the pictures on their Facebook and their albums were so-so, but our buttercream cake had that sleek, polished look of fondant, and tasted 10x better!!

We went with Marie’s Catering for our April 2014 wedding at Danada House in Wheaton, IL.
Out of the 4-5 caterers I contacted, they were most reasonably priced and the quickest to respond. If they don’t have an answer for you right away, they will always email you back within few hours to let you know that they’re working on it so you don’t feel neglected.
Ericka is an absolute joy to work with! She’s so well organized and on top of everything. We were told by many of our guests that our wedding was one of the most well executed and kid friendly wedding they’ve attended.
We were also very happy with how our custom salmon dish (we requested miso glazed) turned out. Several guests made a point to tell us how much they enjoyed the food.
We’re so happy we chose Marie’s. I would certainly recommend their services for any big events.

Marie's Catering did an exquisite job for our Chicago destination wedding. Their coordinator Erika did a great job working remotely with me and my mom on the west coast, and locally with my Chicago-based aunts to schedule tastings. She was able to work with our budget and my need for gluten-free options. She made it easy and ordered linens, chairs, scheduled staff for delivery and set up the day of. The service staff and manager were all extremely professional and gracious. They were flexible and helpful throughout the entire wedding. They decorated the tables beautifully and pre-plated salads so no guests would be waiting to eat. The buffet dinner was hot and frequently replenished. Marie's surprised us by adding beautiful decorations to the buffet table in our wedding colors! Guests raved about the food, it was elegant and delicious. We enjoyed the tilapia, chicken parmesan, and beef stroganoff. Attentive to clearing our plates and refilling drinks regularly, it felt like a plated dinner. Thank you so much Marie's!

Ericka Vetter (Emmett) is one of the most responsive vendors that I have worked with. Any question throughout the planning process was almost immediately answered via email. After months of research and a tasting, we have decided on Marie's Catering, a preferred vendor of The Rialto. This caterer handled The "Brady Wedding" with Adrienne and Chris back in 2006 and continue to cater a lot of the weddings there. I had first thought about bringing another caterer in from another area, but the issue was that the venue (Rialto) had very specific requirements and I definitely need a veteran of the venue to handle it. They are extremely flexible and creative and have worked on customizing are preliminary menu no matter what the request. They actually allowed for us to do a second tasting and we were very specific with the cuisine and service that we wanted for our guests. The taste and product on the wedding day was absolutely perfect! Many people commented that the food was the best "wedding food" they have ever had. I will, however, say that I am a little disappointed in two things. 1. the temperature of the food was not adequate; the dishes were at best luke warm (some not all) and this was at the family tables up close to us. The only forgiveness here is that the facilities at the Rialto are sort of small for food prep and the catering par-cooks the product on the way the. It is very difficult to serve there, but we were expecting what we were promised.. 2. We specifically paid for a 1 per 20 server ratio to insure quick and even food service. I was mortified to look up when I was completely finished eating (30 min passed) to see there were some dinner trays heading out to the guest tables. I do however, feel that the quality of the dish itself probably overshadowed those two points. I just feel a little misled that "everything will be taking care of because we do this all the time" comments made me feel like everything would be perfect. I have a feeling something was not right behind the prep area. Did an oven or warmer go out? Were they short staffed? Did some servers call in? These were all the details that I was not prepared to deal with as the bride and really didn't reflect on until I returned home from honeymoon.
I would book them again if we had that dish to specifications (as they did a wonderful job with) with the appropriate temperature and confirm even serve time. Ericka and her assistant Jaclyn definitely work well with us and their responsiveness shows throughout the planning process. Again, their food quality, taste, and presentation is a notch above other catering companies.

I am so happy with how everything turned out. I got married at the Danada House in Wheaton and they have a list of approved caterers. I looked at all of them and Maries seemed to be the most professional and really seemed to know what they were doing. They really worked with me on prices and did an exceptional job and planning everything. My wedding was perfect in my eyes and I know that I owe so much of that to Ericka and her assistant Jaclyn. They had everything together and did not overlook anything. The food was so good as was the cake. The cake looked amazing. I gave them a picture of what I wanted and it was more beautiful than I could've imagined. If you use them for your wedding or any other event you will not be disappointed. I feel somewhat sad that it's all over and I don't have anything else to use them for at this point.

Working with Marie's was a dream. Ericka was super responsive, organized and professional. She was also really flexible and extended her own work day to accommodate my husband's and my work schedule for pre-wedding meetings and our tasting, which was really wonderful for us. I found their prices to be very reasonable for everything that we got, and also felt that their package was very inclusive of everything we would need-food, bar, linens, cake, etc. I really appreciated how quickly Ericka responded to all of my emails, and the day of she was calm and excited for us, and everything was set up beautifully. Our cake was gorgeous, the bartenders were friendly and everything was set up exactly as it was supposed to be. If there were any problems, I never found out about them, which means the team was able to problem solve and make the day happen without causing us undo stress. I would very highly recommend Marie's Catering!!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Marie's catering. They won us over at our very first meeting. We worked with Ericka and she was unbelievably helpful! We had a full tasting for just the two of us--get the beef, it's the best I've ever had! Ericka helped us plan our whole event--from the meal, to the cake, to the bar, to the timeline. She was patient with us as we wrestled with each decision--what color linens?--and kept us updated on the contract and any price changes along the way. Her staff made sure that all our little details--escort cards, family photos, favors, centerpieces, cake plates, etc, etc., all found their place at the venue. We had so many compliments on the food!!!! Everything was perfect!

Marie's Catering is an amazing place. Granted, it is very expensive, but you get great food and a wonderful wedding coordinator for the price. I probably emailed the woman at least 40 times, and she always responded very thoroughly and energetically. You can pick your cake based on anything you want - find pictures from online or if you have ideas - they are very flexible. The only thing is, if you live in Wheaton, it is a bit of a drive - which is why I did everything by email until the final meeting.

Marie's offered us amazing food for an excellent price! They were extremely flexible with our requests of an open bar and dessert table in place of a cake. We were able to bring in our own chocolate dipped strawberries to add to our dessert table in place of a cake. When we ran out of different bottles at our bar, they immediately sent out a person to go and replace. Right on top of things...very organized and fun to work with!

I read reviews of Marie's and specifically Ericka before signing a contract with them and all were glowing, especially for Ericka herself. The reviews made her sound like she walks on water. Now after having worked with her for the last year, I totally agree with those reviews! Ericka made the whole planning process easy. She was very professional, responsive, creative, and flexible. She stuck with us through many special requests, our wedding growing by 25%, and even worked with the Chef to create a special vegan meal to serve to many of my guests. Our guests are raving about the food and how good it was, and far from typical wedding food.
