  • Mindy and her crew provided a beautiful meal for my wedding! We chose a meat option and a vegetarian option, and had 2 salads and an assortment of bread. They provided water, coffee and hot tea and cut our wedding cakes. The food was so delightful, and perfectly prepared, the philo wrapped chicken was amazing, and all my guests returned to the buffet line to pile up the delicious kale salad. Mindy was responsive, and immensely helpful, and I couldn't be happier with choosing them!
