    Creative and Accomodating Caterer

    We were looking for a warm and inviting wedding venue for approximately 80 to 100 people and found the Glenview Park District Lakeview Room, and Sam Gray/Catered by Design. We chose Sam because we wanted a simple but elegant reception, and someone who was meticulous in planning and implementation. From the very beginning, Sam was responsive and helped us plan our ideal wedding. Catered by Design is highly creative in their ability to customize menus, the room and so much more. Sam and his team are very, very flexible and will change room setup and menus to meet your needs.
    We had very specific dietary needs which Sam accommodated easily. Sam offers a beautiful menu tasting to help confirm choices and to determine the overall look you want. He also offers a preferred vendor list if you need a suggestion. We selected a photographer from his list who led us to a great band and the band led us to a great wedding planner. Good know good people and Sam is good people.
    The reception went off beautifully. Sam and his team worked seamlessly with all of our vendors to create an evening to remember. Everything was set up as we wanted and our guests were impressed with the look of the room and the elegantly presented food stations. It was just wonderful and what we wanted. His staff was attentive to our guests and accommodating to their needs. After the wedding, we had many compliments on the food, the layout and the overall event. In conclusion, Sam Gray and Catered by Design are excellent and we recommend them for the food, the planning and an amazing event.

    Delicious Food & A Great Wedding Day Partner

    We were fortunate to get to taste Catered by Design’s food before we booked and once we did our decision was so easy. Their menu is huge and very customizable to your tastes. The food was delicious and one of the most raved about parts of our wedding! For weeks to come people were telling us how amazing the food was! It isn’t just about food, it’s also about working with folks who make you feel at ease with all the little details. We worked with Jen leading up to our big day and she was truly amazing! She is not a day-of-coordinator, but she felt like it to me and helped put us at ease. She was always quick to respond to all my questions, has so much expertise that I felt comfortable relying on her suggestions, and she was so flexible to any little changes we made. She was also very familiar with our venue so she had lots of suggestions on weather options and basically everything. We cannot thank her enough for all she helped us with! Our event captain was Aukse and she was amazing, too! She made sure everything was set-up and ran smoothly – she even made sure we had a plate of appetizers since we were taking photos during cocktail hour! We had the best experience with Catered by Design and would highly recommend to anyone!
