    Hard to improve on perfection!

    Erin and her team are outstanding!!!! The praise for her food and presentation continues to stream in well beyond our wedding week!

    As to specifics... Erin’s patience and persistence when it comes to getting everything just right. She, quite simply, practices in meeting all hopes and expectations and will not settle for anything less!

    I would also be remiss not to mention Erin’s sharp improvisational skills. She came up with ideas that you just can’t think of when your head is spinning from putting together the three ring circus, that is most weddings. More than once and seemingly out of thin air, she created miracle work-arounds to pop-up issues, that saved me from having to take the long way around. Caterer is too curt of a title to fully encapsulate all that she brings to the table. Pun fully intended!

    I’ll let the attached embarrassing photo of us speak for itself, ha!!

    🌺 Mahalo nui loa, Erin!!🌸

    SO friendly and very helpful!

    What a great crew! Erin was very responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. They were totally flexible helping us figure out our drink table/bar situation. The staff were so kind the day of our wedding, both to us and guests. The food was great. We especially loved the appetizers. And oh my word - the mini cheesecakes, we're still talking about them!!! Would 100% recommend!
