We had a morning wedding on a glorious fall Sunday in October. We wanted to do something a little different and ended doing heavy hors d'oeuvres with brunch elements. Sweet Potato Turkey biscuits, sausage rolls, yogurt, granola,fruit,cheddar grits with shrimp and so many other amazing items. Our guests just loved the food! We also had our wedding at their property The Kyle House and it was awesome. ( Note: if you are looking for that rustic vibe but you aren't DIY creative check out The Kyle House it comes already decorated and has that rustic romantic charm. The chapel next door where ceremony happens is a magical place as well!)Guests loved loved loved the venue and food. Jim and Amanda were so helpful and kind. Make sure you know what you want though! Jim is very professional but has his ideas about what should/would work. So either go prepared with all ideas or be open to hearing what could be done differently. They helped us work out our timelines and made sure their staff was on the same page with what we wanted. I could reach Amanda at any time by email. She was on the ball with emails and phone calls. Overall the wedding was perfect and we couldn't be happier.

Jim Schaal has made a reputation for himself in the Roanoke Valley. We had heard many different reviews before meeting Jim, and weren’t sure what to expect. He is a vendor who is direct, and who lets his many years of experience guide his conversations. At first, we found ourselves in a whirlwind of information, but the more we got to know Jim, the more we appreciated his candor and his expertise. He worked with us on menu, even cooking recipes that we had sent to him that we wanted on our special day. Not that this bride got to eat, but I did hear from everyone how phenomenal the food was for our June wedding. We didn’t expect to see Jim on the day, since he had other events going on, but he was there taking pictures. As the final person I saw before walking down the aisle, he made sure to let me know how great I looked, and to enjoy the evening ahead. We were so happy that we made the choice to go with the best caterer in town!

We had superb service from Schaal's Events:
- Hunting Hills Country Club Venue
- Food and bar service
- prep and serving help at wedding eve open house

Their staff is responsive, professional, and pays attention to details.
Jim's menu gave us a fabulous selection of delicious food throughout the evening. Presentation of food is beautiful! He can work within your budget. The Hunting Hills Country Club venue is absolutely wonderful. There is all new comfortable furniture . . . many seating arrangements . . . provides many spaces for comfortable visiting/eating in addition to the dining area. We had the largest dance floor area available which was great for our dancing crowd. Outside wedding on patio . . . beautiful with forest backdrop. Inside reception space was teriffic! Felt pricing was very reasonable.

I booked Schaal's catering for my wedding in July. I had heard great things about them, and I was very pleased that Jim Schaal was able to work with me and my tight budget. We decided on heavy hors d'oeuvres since the reception was scheduled for later in the evening. Jim was incredibly helpful even before we officially signed a contract. He recommended a photographer for us, he gave us some tips about timing of our wedding, and he tried to help us save money on things that we hadn't thought about before. Something really nice about Schaal's is that they offer their own linens for rental for only $10 per linen (this is only to pay for cleaning). If you don't know much about wedding planning, this is a great deal! It was also nice to not have to worry about an additional vendor; it was included in my catering.

For the most part, everything was wonderful! The food was good; the shrimp and grits was absolutely AWESOME (a fan favorite!), and there was plenty of food even though it was just heavy hors d'oeuvres. The staff was very attentive, and the bar tender did a great job! We had decided to add these little chicken and waffle skewers to our menu because 1) we love chicken and waffles and 2) we thought it would be a unique touch for our wedding. However, they were disappointing. They were dry and cold when they came out. Overall, everything was wonderful; we were just a little disappointed by this little detail. I also gave four out of five stars on responsiveness because there were times when I had a hard time getting some questions answered via email. They were answered eventually, and everything worked out, but I felt that it was worth mentioning. So, overall, everything ran smoothly, the food was good, and the staff was courteous and professional. I appreciate Schaal's willingness to work within our tight budget and putting out a good product.

The Schaals were absolutely wonderful to work with at the Kyle House. They made sure to cater to our needs at all times--we weren't sure about the table linens so they offered to purchase new ones because they liked our color scheme. They were always easy to work with and made the wedding a breeze. The food was also delicious!
