    Food guests will talk about a month later

    You know they've knocked it out of the park when weeks later we still have guests mention that it was some of the best wedding food they had. We opted for something a little nontraditional with stations and I could not recommend that enough. It gave ample options for everyone and EMW was incredibly helpful with adjusting to dietary requests while still keeping everything cohesive. I was blown away by the presentation of everything from the succulents on the passed hor d'oeuvres to the accompaniments on the carving station. As a foodie, you cannot go wrong with East Meets West.

    Amazing wedding reception we will remember forever!

    We worked with East Meets West because they are affiliated with The Exchange Conference Center in the Boston Seaport. We loved that everything was onsite and we had a coordinator to help us work with the caterer.

    For our reception, we had specific ideas about the food we wanted, and EMW more than delivered! We envisioned stations with our favorite foods for dinner, a dessert buffet, and later night snacks.

    We got to taste our hor devours and dinner options, and it really got us excited for the big day.

    The stations were overflowing with delicious food, and everyone had an option to pick from, including vegan, vegetarian, nut-free, and gluten-free. Our dessert table also featured vegan and gluten-friendly options. For late-night, the caterer humored us with Brooklyn-style egg-creams and cheese pizza. It was perfect!

    Everything was delicious and presented beautifully. And the leftovers to take home was a wonderful surprise. We received so many comments on the food, and know our family will be talking about it for years to come!

    East Meets West Catering's reply:

    Julie - thank you so much for your kind review and we were so happy that you asked us to be part of your special day! Thanks again and congratulations to you and Roy.

    Just the best.

    We worked with Mary Rickard, who was incredibly patient with our total lack of knowledge regarding weddings, and our incredible pickiness. She took all of our terrible ideas (eg. Can we serve poutine for dinner?) and made them into not only a workable plan, but wicked awesome (eg. How about a poutine bar at cocktail hour instead with two different kinds of gravy?). They took care of everything- I never had to worry at the wedding whether something was happening or not, and I got to stay present and in the moment. Everything went so smoothly with the entire team. The tables looked wonderful, my vegan and gluten-free guests were taken care of (and not in a 'here's your salad' way), and the food came out amazing- everything from the maple lemonade to the wedding cake. An absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Cannot recommend them enough!
