“Professional staff, fantastic cooks, wonderful owners who genuinely care about making it the perfect day, and above all, some of the best food I’ve ever paid for.”
“The food was excellent. The most impressive tasting and the most delicious food from all the caterers we looked at.”
“From start to finish, working with Terry was fantastic!”
“We had multiple guests tell us afterwards it was the best wedding they had ever been to—and not only for the food! They said they never wanted for anything, someone was always there to fill their glass or take an empty plate, etc.”
“I can think of no better compliment except that EVERY guest we saw in the months after the wedding mentioned how great the food was. We did a buffet service, and every single piece of chicken and steak was moist and delicious. And 6 months after the wedding, people are still raving about the green beans with shallots.”
“She worked within our budget to create a delicious menu. Terry provided amazing advice about the meal but also other aspects of our wedding (event timing, linen choices and drink options).”
“The food was fabulous! People raved about it! There wasn’t anything we would have changed!”
“The CaterMarin staff were professional and friendly. Many of our guests raved about the food and service. We can’t say enough great things about Terry, Chef Nick & the CaterMarin team—they rock!!”
“Terry and her chefs did a great job of listening to my opinions and incorporating them into the menu, budget, decorations, etc. They also very tactfully made suggestions and were willing to help out on some decisions that I had no experience in. They are all so knowledgeable and the planning felt like a real team effort.”
“Overall, the entire staff was just fantastic to work with. They were so warm and friendly and so excited to talk about my big day that it basically felt like I was planning an event with family members!”
“Everything went smoothly because Terry was there. Not only was everyone on time and doing what they needed to do, people were helping out with things beyond their scope of duty. I really felt that they went above and beyond.”
“The staff even knew that, as the bride and groom, we wouldn’t have a chance to eat as much as we wanted, so they packed up two ‘to go’ plates which we got to take home with us.”(What does this mean?)
