    Best day ever.

    Carol and her team did a fantastic job. The set up, decorations and THE FOOD was perfect. She and her also did my sister’s wedding last summer. The reception with Carol’s help made it a day to remember. She was also very helpful and accommodating during the whole process leading up to the wedding. Thank you again Carol!

    Excellent Caterer

    The food and service provided was one of the best parts of my daughter's wedding. Everyone raved about how great the food was. We almost ran out of food, not because Catering by Vest did not provide enough, but many people confessed that they went back to the buffet multiple times because the food was so good. Carol and her staff we very accommodating, helpful and friendly. They did an excellent job setting up and breaking down the venue. I would definitely hire them again!!

    Amazing Food and Flexibility

    Carol and her team are amazing! Carol was very flexible with me and very responsive. She made me feel at ease once we confirmed all the final details. I really cannot thank her enough for working with me (especially so close to my wedding date). Catering by Vest truly made my wedding vision come true. Thank you!

    Working with Vest has been amazing. Our first event together I had the opportunity to taste her food and OMG it was wonderful. Her staff is on point and it was great to finally work with a caterer that I can get in contact with to finalize all details. Carol you ROCK!!! and I am so glad that we meet years ago and have been powerful business friends and more importantly great friends. If you need a caterer call Vest they will make your plate for your event unforgettable.
