I cannot say enough about how amazing A Thyme To Cook was for our wedding! From beginning to end, they made sure to cover every single detail, and went out of their way to ensure that our special day was smooth and perfect.Sent on 04/14/2020
Liz was our wedding coordinator, and she was absolutely wonderful. She was in constant contact with us, and worked closely with our rental company to make sure everything was all set, which helped to take some of the load off of us. She made the entire process so easy, and took so much stress off of our planning. Liz was fantastic and we truly could not have done it without her!
The day of our event we had a personal attendant, Tammy, who was perfect. Before walking down the aisle, she was there to make sure my dress was just right. The entire night, it was like she could read our minds. She was there for us with drinks, food, and kept us on track. She brought us hors d'ouevres and drinks while we were away taking photos during cocktail hour, and always made sure that we ate and enjoyed our dinner before the craziness of the reception.
The food was so amazing, and everyone raved about it! Liz listened to all of our food requests, contributed some of her own, and the chefs created the most delicious food. Everything was so tasty, and beautifully prepared.
I recommend A Thyme to Cook to anyone planning a wedding or any catered event. They were organized, above and beyond helpful, and the food was amazing. Thank you for everything!

Best there is
If you're considering hiring A Thyme To Cook - do it! We looked at several caterers for our wedding in September 2019 and I am so grateful we decided to spend the extra money and go with ATTC. Their immaculate quality, outstanding customer service and precise attention to detail are second to none.Sent on 05/28/2020
Their office is located on the most gorgeous property in the woods in an old farmhouse building that is beautifully decorated. This serves as a good representation of what you can expect from them. From the minute I walked in the door I was treated like I was the most important person in the room. Juli took great care to find out exactly what we were looking for and how they would be able to adapt a menu to match our vision. They even had a sign outside the front door to welcome me, personalized with my name...! I was sold.
Once we made the easy decision to hire them, I was introduced to an absolute angel of a wedding coordinator, Liz. Liz is patient, organized and experienced. Her relaxed demeanor made it so easy to have a casual conversation about what we wanted. When we had our first meeting, they provided a delectable assortment of scones and berries with citrus mint flavored water which took my breath away. The royal treatment did not stop there. When we came in for our tasting, they sat us at a private table for two where we tasted all of the items that would be on our dinner menu. I can genuinely say, the meal we had on the night of our wedding was entirely consistent with what we had during that tasting. Bold, unique flavors that some of our guests said was the best they'd ever had.
ATTC was incredibly accommodating and I always felt like they completely understood my vision. I don't think they said "no" to anything we asked for. In fact, I'm pretty sure there is nothing they can't do. Their chefs worked with us to create new menu items that fit our theme and even offered their own creative ideas which we of course took. On the day of the wedding we were absolutely stunned by the decor. They completely nailed our Sicilian theme, even more so than I could have even imagined. Liz was there every step of the way and they even assigned us a designated assistant who made sure my husband and I had whatever we needed throughout the night. I've never experienced that level of attention to detail and I doubt I ever will again. A Thyme To Cook is the epitome of "5 star service."

Best decision we made
Let me begin by saying choosing ATTC for my wedding caterer was the best decision we made for our weekend. I knew immediately after talking to Juli that ATTC was for me - the team was so detail oriented, listened to our vision, and had top notch service. Liz was our Event Coordinator and I can't say enough good things about her. She truly made the wedding day SEAMLESS, stress free, and very enjoyable for us. Nothing fell through the cracks, she was super responsive, and helped guide me through everything. The day of could not have gone smoother, the team at our venue was incredible as they made sure we were constantly being looked after and everything was neatly packed up after which took a huge load off our families. Also the most important part - the food was incredible. Our guests are still raving about the meals, hordevours, and service (and so are we!!!). Huge thanks to ATTC, Liz, and the staff, and they will be recommended to anyone I know getting married.Sent on 10/23/2019
