We planned the wedding from Nj only getting to meet Maggie and Matt once at the tasting. They were both great and very open to anything as far as menu went. I was told one owner was on site for each event. What I did not realize was that Maggie would be working like a staffer all night. Thank god we brought our MC and DJ, who are family friends, from home. They really ran the night. Otherwise I really would have needed someone to act a maitre' d. I was under the impression that Maggie would take that role.
Cocktail hour was splendid. Presentation of antipasto wagon just gorgeous. Don't pass that up. Cocktails great and so were bartenders. Wonderful salad but meat and chicken not great. Butternut squash ravioli the best of the lot.

One thing marred the evening. Maggie came to me saying there were over 160 guests. I knew for a fact 141 in attendance. She came back and said upon recount she found 147 plus 4 vendors but she wasn't charging any more. Again, I know what my attendance was. I felt a little insulted.

Overall a good experience and Maggie always smoothed things out. We are used to a higher, more professional level of service in the tristate area.

Our daughter married on Mt. Philo on July 6th. We planned the wedding from Charleston SC and this caterer came highly recommended. They were wonderful to work with and "catered" to every preference with class and elegance. They exceeded every expectation and prices were very reasonable and allowed for us to adjust at every level. They also had demonstrated much experience suggesting things we may have overlooked that were unrelated to the food. It was our first wedding and they walked us through the process. On the big day, my husband and I totally relaxed and enjoyed the day. Everything was wonderful from the appetizers, buffet, bar service and dessert. They suggested a s'more pit for the children which was as popular with the adults. They made the day brilliant and everyone loved the food!!!!

Matt and Maggie were great. Our food was AHH-MAZING!!! The food presentation was like no other wedding I have ever been too and our guests are still raving about their meals. Just the cheese and cracker station alone was mind blowing! They were a bit more costly than other vendors we spoke too, but 100% WORTH IT. They were professional and responsive. They were extemely flexible even after we changed part of the menu almost a week before the wedding. They found us our specialty beer that is hard to find and never ran out and had all the country props to make our wedding so great. I can't say enough about them. If I have another catered event, I know who to go to. Maggie and Matt, thanks again!!

The Spice of Life team did an amazing job from start to finish helping shape our ideas into a fabulous event. We did a few different stations at the wedding, each of which was phenomenal. Several guests remarked that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. I didn't get to eat nearly as much as I wanted but the food I did have was amazing in flavor, presentation, and quantity. Based on comparisons with other caterers they seem on the expensive side, but their quoted price is also inclusive of all those little fees some caterers like to add on after the fact. They also took care of lots of the set up and break down details that I was happy not to have to worry about myself, and coordinated linen rentals/other item rentals. The team was professional and personable throughout the planning and day of, and I would definitely recommend them to others!

Spice of Life Catering was a great match for us. I particularly thank our very informative, helpful, resourceful, responsive Catering Rep Calli... who basically turned into our event coordinator and my go to person for a lot of questions I would have asked my reception vendor if they would just have given me the time of day to answer my emails/calls.
The food choices were excellent. Calli helped us decide what kind of hors d'oeuvres would work well with our dinner options, what sides, and even had a suggestion on types of alcohol we should order to pair with the food. When I discovered late in the game that I had not been viewing our invoices incorrectly and suddenly saw the labor charge, Calli took my flip out in stride, and handled my bridezilla moment with grace. Calli really worked with us on meeting our budget. There were some areas that were just getting over the top for us, and really scared us in terms of being able to afford things. Calli was sympathetic and really turned over every leaf to meet our budget needs.
I take away one star from Spice of Life's professionalism only because of a phone conversation I had the day before our wedding with one of the owners. He was incredibly rude and was putting a lot of the blame on me personally for expressing my frustrations at the sudden increase in price of one of our market priced items, and an issue with the catering tent we needed to rent. He said some things that were out of line, and had I not had such a great experience with our rep Calli, I would have had a real change of heart about this caterer.
Our guests really enjoyed the food at the reception. I was happy to see that Spice of Life brought their own decor for their buffet and appetizer table that really fit our wedding theme well, and was surprised to see that not only was Calli organizing the catering team, but she was also a server. She made sure to ask us during the dinner if we were enjoying the food and even offered to make up a small plate of hors d'oeuvres that I had missed due to using that cocktail hour to get bride/groom photos.
In the end, fantastic time working with them. The catering I think is the hardest part to get right when planning a wedding, but Calli really walked us through it to an amazing final result.

Presentation was wonderful, hors d'ouvres were amazing, most of the food was incredible (and food is never incredible at weddings!). We got many compliments. Everything went very smoothly. My only real complaint was that they could be difficult to get a response from when I tried to contact them. But very nice and unique.
