In a sentence - Emily's Cafe & Catering literally made my wedding.
From the first email, our experience with this caterer was professional, accommodating, and enjoyable. We worked mostly with Samantha and she was amazing. We are a frugal couple (perhaps to a fault!), but Samantha was more than happy to work within our budget to make our dream wedding happen. In just one meeting, we went from having literally *no idea* what we were doing for the wedding to walking out with excitement, details, and a very agreeable estimate.
During the wedding, Emily's staff handled a variety of unexpected issues with poise. Everything from estranged parents, sudden rain, tipsy guests, to a bride that constantly calls you "Emily" instead of "Samantha", it was all handled with utmost professionalism. Every single guest complimented the food and decor of the wedding. I am so grateful for their service and I couldn't recommend them enough.
Words cannot even express how happy we were with Emily's!!! We used them for our wedding last month and they were a huge part in making our day perfect! My husband and I are huge foodies, so it was important to us that we found a caterer that reflected our passion! We were absolutely blown away by everything we tried at our tasting, and everything was just as amazing at the wedding! Every single guest raved about how wonderful everything was! (They're still talking about it a month later!!) And our cake was not only one of the most beautiful wedding cakes I've ever seen, but it seriously may have been the best cake I've ever tasted!! I cannot say enough great things about working with Jennifer! She seriously went above and beyond to make sure our day went smoothly. We had a venue where we had to bring everything in ourselves, and Jenn was SUCH a huge help. She is the sweetest and incredibly professional. We HIGHLY recommend using them!!!
We cannot overstate our satisfaction. We worked with both Beth and Samantha throughout the planning process, and Beth was our event captain at the wedding. Both of them were consummate professionals, kind and highly responsive. The entire staff at the wedding was professional and hardworking. And of course the food was excellent. We served meat and fish at our wedding, but I am a vegetarian, so it was important to me to have quality, inspired vegetarian options too. Emily's delivered -- we got so many compliments from our guests (especially on the steak and pumpkin cake).
Even beyond the food, Emily's provides incredible value. They work directly with an event rental company and do all of the pre-wedding coordination for you. Our venue (Willowwood Arboretum) was challenging -- there is no running water, and you are basically given use of outdoor space and have to figure the rest out. Emily's handled rentals of the tables, chairs, tent, lighting, dance floor, dishes, silverware, glassware, linens, extension cords, etc. and looped us in only as necessary to get our opinion on decorative choices. It was really wonderful to have to deal with only one vendor for so many services. Emily's had never worked our venue before, but you would never have known it. Beth put in all the necessary legwork (she met me for an on site walkthrough a month before the wedding, and coordinated with the venue on permits and other logistics), and things went seamlessly on the day of.
Also, we hired a day of coordinator who turned out to lack problem solving skills, but Beth stepped up and basically did her job too. Beth was on top of every minor thing that went wrong (the gas powering our generator for the bathrooms ran out, we were running low on mixers after the cocktail hour), and took care of things without stressing me or my husband out.
We got the chance to work with Emily and company at wedding at the Prallsville Mill in Stockton last year and they were amazing to work with. Dinner was spectacularly timed and was excellent. As a DJ I get to sample food from a lot of different caterers and the Chilean Sea Bass was out of this world! Emily was always very friendly and courteous and everything went amazingly well. Highly recommend.
Emily and her staff are true professionals, they bring service, style and excellent taste to every event. We've been working with them for a number of years and we always have collectively very happy clients.
