    Ginny and Gregg did a wonderful job catering my daughter, Lauren’s, wedding. The food was excellent, service was perfect and most of all they were so professional that I did not have to worry about a thing. It allowed me to enjoy what was a perfect day. Both Gregg and Ginny were very helpful and absolutely a joy to work with. I would highly recommend them for any catering event.

    We not only had our wedding catered by Ginny and Gregg, but also had our wedding at their venue. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day, just like Ginny told me it would be. We did tapas during pictures, and they were absolutely amazing. They say a bride doesn't eat on her wedding day, well my husband made sure I got a plate of everything :). Next we had food stations with their amazing whitefish, mashed potato bar and many more! It was amazing! The atmosphere, the dance floor, the romantic lights...it was just perfect. It was a little chilly, but Ginny and Gregg set up a bonfire for us, as well as a yummy smore bar! Everyone raved about the food, atmosphere and memories that all of us get to cherish forever. It was beautiful and unique...the best day of my life. Thank you so much Ginny and Gregg!!!

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at matter of taste at Tapawingo and also used Matter of Taste for our catering. Our wedding turned out absolutely perfect!! The venue is gorgeous and is such a nice atmosphere. It was the perfect size for our wedding (about 80 people). We got endless compliments on the venue. Ginny and Greg were very helpful and accomdating. They made the wedding we imagined come true! The food was FANTASTIC. We had a little trouble with our shuttle transporting guests so the ceremony was pushed back about 40 minutes. The staff was AMAZING. They opened the bar early and brought out appetizers while people waited. They even brought food back to me and my bridesmaids. They have a nice bridal suite that we all got ready at which was perfect. They even brought us muffins and coffee while we got ready. I had a few last minutes changed and Greg and Ginny made sure everything was just how I wanted it. We also had our rehearsal dinner there and it turned out great. I would absoulely recoommennd Matter of Taste at Tapawingo!!

    A Matter of Taste's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words and it was our pleasure to celebrate both rehearsal and wedding at our peaceful, private venue. My husband was so funny while preparing for the wedding he thought it would be a great idea to make muffins for you girls. Men will always do something during your marriage that always remind you why you married them. That was one for me, because after 23 years of marriage he can take me right back to his thoughtful ideas. Gregg and I along with our entire staff at A Matter of Taste @Tapawingo wish you all the best and thank you for having us! Your review was very kind and its what we strive for. Making dreams come true and be as accomodating to help insure a flawless experience! Thank You!

    If you are looking for great food with great service look no further than A Matter of Taste. I have had the privilege of enjoying their catering at multiple Weddings and I have always cleaned my plate. The best compliment a caterer can get is clean plates and happy people.
