Highlight of our Wedding Vendors
Ruth MacBean is a wedding lifesaver. We cannot rave enough about the professionalism, quality, and value provided by Teatime staff. Throughout our wedding planning process, Ruth was a critical asset. Her company was a preferred vendor of our venue and it was so easy to see why. Ruth knows the wedding industry, and venues, like the back of her hand. Ruth was responsive to any and all questions and went above and beyond what we expected of a catering company to make our day perfect. Ruth was able to save us from many potential miscommunications with the venue since she knew it and its players so well. Ruth also was able to help us streamline our rentals by adding them into the order she was placing for basic catering needs (for example, we had to rent outdoor chairs for our ceremony as well as some tables for outdoor use, which Ruth graciously placed in addition to/with the same company she uses for cutlery/glassware/china). Her pricing was beyond reasonable and the food was out of this world. Ruth is refreshingly upfront and honest, keeping us down to earth while also willing to go to extra lengths to ensure we were happy with our day. She developed a robust and classic menu that pleased all taste-buds. A personal highlight for us was the out-of-this-world cake that Ruth baked and included in our catering package. Ruth was an enormous asset to us throughout our wedding planning process and we cannot recommend her and her team strongly enough. Her staff was amazing day-of, and helped everything run seamlessly. Thank you, Ruth!!!Sent on 01/19/2019

This is the best catering company, ever, thanks to the attention to detail and overall professionalism of Ruth MacBean. On two separate occasions in August 2016, she was able to put together two very large events, with involved many last minute details! She handled each challenge effortlessly and was able to provide just the right mix of appetizers, drinks and overall desserts. She is a Rock Star and you can not go wrong with letting her handle all of the catering, so that you can focus on other details with any event!Sent on 09/28/2016

The Caterer of Our Dreams!
Finding the right caterer was probably the hardest task of our wedding given that we needed to find someone reasonably priced on relatively short notice for a June wedding and who could accommodate an all pescetarian/vegetarian wedding with gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free options. When we found Ruth, it was like a dream come true. Not only are her prices excellent, but she made a menu tailored just to us with breadcrumb encrusted tofu as one option and salmon in a dairy-free cream sauce as the other main option. She offered us appetizers that reflected our Baltimore and Charleston backgrounds like crab cakes, shrimp and grits, and pimento cheese alongside gluten free crackers and cucumber hors d'oeuvres. And when we told her that my fiance proposed using a plum seed that he'd saved from the picnic we had on our first date, she made sure there were plenty of plums in the fruit display and created a beautiful and incredibly delicious cake decorated with plums and drizzled with a plum sauce. I also have to say that she was a pleasure to talk with, super responsive, and did a great job addressing my many questions and concerns. If you're lucky enough to book her, do it! And bonus--you're supporting a small woman-owned local business. :)Sent on 07/10/2019
Teatime Delicacies and its guru, Ruth NcBean, is one of the best kept secrets of the catering business world. The staff is professional, they produce scrumptious food and the presentation is impeccable. The inclusion of wedding cakes makes them it much easier for the couple as well. I am always impressed that the staff is so knowledgable of the venue and set up needs for each event. Many catering firms with whom we have worked dispatch a less than adequately informed staff regarding the venue. This never happens with Teatime Deliccaacies and it makes all the difference for an easy flow to the event.
