Hiring Special Moments for our wedding was the best catering decision we could have made. They were really pleasant, organized and efficient. Everything was set up perfectly and the food was delicious.

They planned with us at a distance all of the time, because we live in Chicago and our wedding was there in Arizona. They were really responsive both in email and phone. Since the first beginning they were really open and they offered really creative ideas to follow our bugdet while keeping the things we wanted. We had a pasta station that we could choose between different kinds of pasta, sauces and ingredients, and everyone loved it. They also kept a cute vintage look to match with the decoration, and their professionalism made the food a complete success.

We want to do a special thank you to Brad that was our contact and definitely made his best to make our day so special. We could see in his face that he really loves what he does and that makes all the difference. If you are looking for a company to cater your wedding with amazing food, look no further.

Special Moments did a fantastic job for us in the most difficult of circumstances. It absolutely poured the day of our wedding, which unfortunately resulted in several last minute changes to what we had originally planned. Special Moments was extremely accommodating with these changes, and endured the rain and cold to ensure that our guests received a hot meal. The Marsala wine sauce was too light so the chicken was a little dry. Other than that, the food was excellent! We highly recommend Special Moments Catering!

I was very happy with Special Moments as the caterer for our wedding. Michelle was very responsive and patient with our many, many questions. Everything went perfectly the day of our wedding and the food was delicious. We went with a buffet of chicken marsala and cranberry stuffed pork. During the tasting, the marsala was our favorite and while it was good at the reception, the winner was the cranberry pork! It was even better than it was at our tasting and we received many compliments on it from our guests. They gave us a plate of cheese, crackers, and chocolate-dipped strawberries to take with us after we left, and that came in very handy the next morning (we both finished off our plates of food during the reception instead of running around). Their prices are very fair and they are flexible and easy to work with. I want more of that cranberry pork....

The food provided was delicious and the serving staff that worked our wedding were professional, so accommodating and very kind. They made the night that much better and our guests commented on how courteous the serving staff was. The food was nicely presented and even better tasted amazing. The coffee bar was a great addition to everything we had. I would definitely recommend this company in the future.

Special Moments has great food, great service and they are very professional. I worked with Brad during all the planning and he was beyond helpful. I probably had a million questions and he was patient and kind during the entire process. I probably tasted more food during the tastings than on my actual wedding day (I was too excited to eat!), but I can tell you that the food is the best you're going to find, especially for the price. I would recommend Special Moments to any bride :)

One word...DELICIOUS. If I had to pick a few more words, I'd choose satisfying, unique, mouth-watering!

Special Moments was the preferred vendor at our reception site, Villa Tuscana. After taste testing their food and working closely with the people, I can clearly see why. There are so many great choices for entrees and side dishes. For our 150 person wedding, they let us choose two main dishes and serve them in half portions which meant that everyone got to try both entrees! We picked two sides as well and also a salad. There was so much food that people were actually able to go up for seconds! That never happens at weddings.

One of the things people enjoyed most about our wedding was the food. I think so many people are used to getting served mediocre meals at weddings that when they tasted what Special Moments had to offer, they were blown out of the water.

Thank you, Special Moments, for adding to the joy of our wedding day!

We had so many compliments on our wedding food. Catering was included in our wedding package from Villa Tuscana, and we enjoyed the variety of entrees offered by Special Moments. Everyone raved about the puff pastry beef and chipotle sauce. The food was warm and tasted exactly like it did at our tasting. I would definitely recommend them.
