My husband and I had our wedding reception at Neshanic Valley Golf Course in June 2015 and worked exclusively with Merri-Makers catering. The quality of the food was PHENOMENAL- every guest commented on that for both cocktail hour and entrees. I would most definitely recommend Merri-Makers for any catered event!
Thank you so much for allowing us to share your special day! Please come back anytime to just say hi or if you'd like to take some pictures (this is nice to do on your anniversary) - it was a pleasure working with you!
Merri-Makers food was outstanding and I am a big foodie! I was so happy with the outcome of the food, the presentation was so beautiful, and the options are endless.
I cannot begin to express how grateful we are to have had the Merrimakers & WOD team by our side during this wonderful, but at some points stressful time. I cannot tell you that your wedding won't be costly, if you choose a WOD venue...but I can absolutely tell you that you will remember it for the rest of your lives, and it will certainly be the best night of your life! Merrimakers has an unmatched professionalism about them, that I do not believe is available anywhere else. We worked with Laura D., Mary, Jamie, Kevin, and Kevin, Kate (my bridal attendant, whom I will be grateful for her presence that night for the rest of my life LOL), and Ginny for WOD, and I really cannot express into words how instrumental each and everyone of these people were in making our night BEAUTIFUL. I cannot say one off color thing about this team...I promise you WOD venues are worth the price. The food was exceptional, our ballroom was setup exactly to my specifications, and the staff that worked our wedding were among the nicest people I have ever met. I know for a fact, that people will discuss our wedding for years to come...can't say enough great things. The only thing that upsets me is that I can't do it again 100 times over. We love WOD and Merrimakers!
The food was delicious, the price was reasonable, and the maitre d' and waitstaff went out of their way to make sure our wedding day went perfectly.
Merri-Makers did such an amazing job! I have received so many compliments on the food. Several saying it was the best they had ever had at a wedding!!!
Merri-Makers catered our wedding at The Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ. The food was delicious, the staff was very professional and the service was perfect. The cocktail hour appetizers were the perfect start to the evening. They offered a large selection of reception meals for us to choose from. The food was served at the perfect temperature and the sides were arranged very elegantly. Our guests are still talking about the passed desserts and fondue table. We would not have changed a thing about our food.
We are thrilled to hear that your big day was a success! And we are so happy that we were able to give you everything that you wanted. We wish you the best of luck in life and look forward to doing business in the future. Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
Laura and Ellie were out of this world! Laura was very gracious through our entire menu planning process (which means we changed it 3000000 times). The night of our wedding, we had everything we asked for and so much more. Everyone raved about the food and exceptional service all night long!
Thank you so much for your gracious review! We were happy to make your night one to remember. We look forward to doing business again in the future! Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
When we first saw the Ashford Estate we knew it was the perfect venue for our Wedding, the only downside we could see was that we had to use a caterer and that they did not have an actual kitchen and staff on-site. We were very weary but than we met with Laura and all of our questions were answered and she made us completely comfortable. Merri Makers Catering is such a professional company, the food was FANTASTIC! All of our guests complimented the cocktail hour and the dinner. We were very pleased with all the coordination and details that were handled by Merri Makers. If you are looking for a great caterer, Merri Makers is the perfect choice.
We appreciate your wonderful review and were thrilled to make your special day perfect. Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
AMAZING! The food and service were absolutely PERFECT. They are extremely easy to work with and very accomodating. They ensure that they're with you throughout the wedding planning process and work very hard to make sure that you have everything that you request for the big day. All of our guests could not stop raving about the cocktail hour - the stations and food presentations were absolute works of art. The steaks they served as entrees (we ordered filet mignons) were the best steaks we've had at a wedding -- and we've been to plenty of weddings within the last year and a half! Overall, we are VERY pleased with our caterer selection. Everything went so smoothly - Merri-Makers makes sure that you are satisfied with every choice that you make... they helped make our dream wedding a reality!
Thank you for the wonderful review, we enjoyed making your day special! We hope to see you again soon for your next special event. Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
Merri Makers is definitely the caterer to use. The food was incredible which of course is first and foremost. Laura, who was my contact person was super nice, attentive and wasy to work with. Everything was flawless and if it wasn't I no one ever knew. A very nice perk that they do is that the bride and groom get any meal of thier choice...and I mean anything....so that was really fun and of course yummy....
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your special day! We were happy to accomodate you and your guests. We hope to help out with any future events you may have. Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
Laura and Mary are an amazing team and literally gave me everything I asked for. They were very organized, which I appreciated and really listened to what I wanted. They also had great recommendations about what works well, but were never pushy or impatient with us despite constantly changing our menu. I wanted a few items that weren't on their menu and they were more than happy to accommodate us including filling 150 cannollis from a bakery in my hometown. Their food is amazing and they have such a great variety to choose from, but also are very flexible with changes you want to make.
Melanie and James,
We were so happy to accomodate all of your needs to make your day as special as possible! So thrilled to hear that everything turned out perfectly. We look forward to doing business in the future! Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
The location is incredibly beautiful, and everyone who was working the night of our wedding was very nice, friendly, and professional. Everything went perfectly. We had no stress at all dealing with them.
Fabulous job! We dealt with Laura from MerriMakers and she made our day absolutely wonderful. I must have emailed her 72,000 times before the big day and she was extremely helpful through each one. She went above and beyond to calm our nerves and make the day of the wedding flawless. She was there with us throughout the night and made sure everything went smoothly. As for MerriMakers as a whole, the food and service were more than we could have imagined. So many of our guests simply raved about the food, especially cocktail hour! They were worth every penny, I highly recommend them!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We were happy to give you the day of your dreams and we are thrilled to hear that it was a success. We look forward to catering any future events you may have. Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
My husband and I got married on a farm with no heat or electricity, let alone a proper cook's kitchen. We knew we needed to hire a catering company that could handle such a difficult event, so Merri-Makers was the obvious choice.
Laura Daly was so easy to work with, and she always offered fresh, creative menu ideas. She came to the farm to do a walk-through with us to determine where the cook tent needed to go with all of their equipment, where our reception tent would go, how far away the cook tent would be from the reception tent to make sure the food stayed hot... she really cared about making sure our wedding would be perfect.
She helped us create the menu for a traditional New England clambake (a tribute to my home state), as well as the best cocktail hour menu our guests had ever seen. Rick did a great job directing the Merri-Makers staff on our wedding day, and everyone was dressed very professionally. The staff was polite, and the bartenders knew how to make drinks well.
In addition to working hard for our guests' experience, they also made sure we, as well as our bridal party, were well taken care of. They had our drinks of choice ready and waiting for us as we arrived at our cocktail hour, and while we were mingling with guests, they were thoughtful enough to make my husband and I plates of food, as we didn't have time to make our own plates. That type of service continued the entire night. I never had to get my own drink or serving of food, as it was all provided for me and my family, before we could even ask for it.
If they can handle our wedding, on a farm, with no electricity, heat, or even a roof over their heads, they can handle your wedding! Merri-Makers is THE best catering company in the state of New Jersey, period.
We wanted your special to day to be wherever you wanted and we are glad that it turned out to be a success. We hope to cater any future events you may have. Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
When we first booked Bonnet Island Estate, we were a little concerned that we did not have a choice of caterers. Coming from an Italian family where food is EVERYTHING at a wedding, I am very happy to report that the food was delicious and my whole Italian family agreed! Laura Daly was our coordinator and she was amazing as was her assistant Mary. Mary was so attentive to my husband and I are on wedding day. We constantly had fresh drinks in our hands. Laura was very accommodating to the many changes I made to our menu and drink order as the wedding got closer. She made sure everything was taken care of on our wedding day.
We are thrilled to hear that the food was everything you had hoped for! We strive to accomodate all of our clients' needs and we are so happy to hear that your day was a success. We look forward to future events we may help you with! Remember, Eat, Drink and Be Merri!
Merri-Makers was such a pleasure to work with and they were absolutely fantastic at everything they do! Laura Daly was our coordinator and she was so amazing and accommodating and helped us to achieve our exact vision for our wedding. We had several meetings over the course of several months to help fine tune our wedding menu. We loved working with them because they really allowed us total freedom to start from scratch and create our own culinary dream for our wedding. We gave them several home recipes that they very willingly helped us to recreate for our wedding which gave such a wonderful and personal touch...we even created an international cocktail hour with flavours from India, Vietnam, Cuba, etc. It was incredible to have them say yes to anything we asked when it came to food. And come wedding day, everything was executed so beautifully and several guests came up to us telling us how amazing the food tasted. Even though we didn't get to eat as much as we would have liked to at our own wedding, everything we tasted was a pure delight. Merri-Makers is wonderful if you're looking for a catering group that is willing to work with you to create your own culinary vision.
