  • Becky and Simply Gourmet Caterers are literally the sweetest vendors I've had the pleasure of hiring. They go above and beyond for their couples. The staff was so kind to my guests and other vendors. They made sure that we were able to taste all the food we has on our wedding day. Becky brought over a plate of appetizers for my husband and I try have while we were taking pictures during cocktail hour. She was incredibly sweet and truly took care of us and our guests. My guests still rave about their beef tips appetizers and desserts.
