At Your Service Catering and Event Planning
I cannot say enough good things about them, particularly Carolyn, who practically became my "wedding planner" before it was all done. The food was amazing--both in taste and presentation, there was plenty of it, and the service was top-notch. When there was a mix-up in our initial consultation about the food-tasting, they actually offered to ship food to me in Florida (where I live)! We were able to work something else out, but that really said something about their customer service. They know exactly what they are doing, and I couldn't have done it without them.
We were thrilled with At Your Service as our wedding reception caterer. John and Mary were both very easy to work with in planning our menu and discussing various options for our reception. They came highly recommended by our reception venue, and, now that we've had our wedding, we have to agree with their assessment! The food was both delicious and beautiful, at a very reasonable cost - definitely the most reasonably-priced caterer we met with, and with no sacrifice to the quality of the food. They were very helpful in planning - when we were trying to decide between two reception venues, both of which they'd catered at before, they were able to provide advice about which setup worked better with a buffet setup (due to the limited kitchen space) versus a seated dinner (we ended up with the buffet venue).
We had their fruit and cheese tower as appetizers for our guests while they waited for us and the wedding party/families to finish taking photos at the church. It was beautiful! Really quite a display. For the buffet dinner, we ended up with green beans, roasted new potatoes, blackened chicken breast, salad, and rolls. All of it was delicious! When we met with the caterer to do a tasting beforehand, we couldn't decide on which salad dressing and sauce for the chicken we liked best - they were gracious enough to let us have all of them so our guests could choose for themselves! They were by far the most flexible vendor we worked with - we asked if they could pre-set drinks on the tables - no problem! We wanted to use the reception venue's silverware, napkins, and tablecloths (included in our venue fee) to save on costs - no problem! They lowered our rental fees. They were also happy to accomodate our request to pass champagne to guests for a champagne toast.
Our reception venue also allowed us to buy our own alcohol, and At Your Service provided licensed bartenders and all of the necessary glassware to staff our bar. One extra touch which was especially helpful was that they went through the buffet first and prepared plates for the bride and groom before opening the buffet to all of our guests - this allowed us to get something to eat while everyone else was going through the buffet, which was great (all of our friends had told us they didn't even get one BITE of dinner at their weddings, and we got 5-10 minutes of uninterrupted time to eat due to them serving our dinner first!)
In addition to the food, At Your Service provided glassware and plate rental (and would have done the linens if they weren't already included with our venue). They also cut and served our wedding cakes (at no extra charge). The service we received was unbelievable! We were very happy with the food and the service, and would highly recommend them to other couples looking for an affordable, friendly, flexible, and most of all delicious caterer!
First of all, John's food is scrumptious. Our guests told us that they've never used the word "love" with wedding food before, but they loved ours. His ingredients are fresh, his menus are unique and gourmet, his presentation is beautiful, and his service is sterling.
His waitstaff made us all feel like royalty - professional down to the last man.
Before the wedding, John and his staff were totally professional and always helpful. There were no hidden fees. He came in on budget. He was accomodating to the children of our guests and to our vegan guest. He even made my family's favorite salad from our recipe - and it wasn't even on his menu!
We had a simply wonderful experience with At Your Service.
