My fairytale wedding
Paul, Charisa, and the whole 1888 barn team helped make our wedding dreams a reality. From the first moment Chris and I walked into the barn, we knew this was our place.Sent on 05/09/2019
The planning process was a breeze with Paul's help. Any question I had was never too small or too much, he was willing to help us figure it out.
And our wedding day went off perfectly. The food was so delicious, and the meals came out so fast that it seemed like all of our 130 guests were eating at the same time. (and the appetizers were so good too!)
We had one crisis that came up (from an outside vendor) and Paul did everything he could to calm me down and help fix things (it all worked out!).
Again, I can't say enough great things about my experience. Chris and I are so thankful to have you a part of our wedding day.

Gourmet in a Pinch Catering and Party Rental Service
We used Gourmet in a pinch for several services and it was amazing. Paul was very helpful, kind, and quick to respond with my 1000 emails and questions about food, rental equipment and dessert.Sent on 10/18/2018
We had Gourmet in a pinch make our wedding cupcakes, meals, and rental tables chairs etc. Without Paul and his staff we couldn't have pulled it off. Thank you so much for helping to make our day the best day ever!! Also thank you to the catering staff who went above and beyond and did more than was required the night of the wedding we truly appreciated it!
