Hope and Essence of the Thymes were amazing during the wedding planning process and at our wedding. It was the best feeling in the world knowing on one of the busiest days of my life, I could trust them to take care of everything on the catering end. Not only was our food delicious, but the display was beautiful. Everyone apart of the Essence team took worked so hard and made sure everyone at out wedding was taken care of. I don't give 5 stars usually, but they without-a-doubt earned it. I would, and will, recommend them to anyone.

Chef Ray and Gina offer the best customer service and exceptional food. I've had the pleasure of tasting food at a wedding I photographed and at an event I attended. The Essence of the Thymes is wonderful. I highly recommend them for all my brides and grooms.

Gina & Ray and their team bring a great sense of energy & fun to every event. They are among our most popular Farm Kitchen caterers, with a great track record of happy clients served year-round, indoors and out. At each wedding, it is truly Your Day where their creativity, good food and dedicated service come together to deliver not just what you planned, but more.

Essence of the Thymes are AMAZING. From their menu creations to their staff. It was an absolute pleasure to have worked with them. I look forward to working with them again.

We loved working with Gina and Ray at Essence of the Thymes over the last couple of years and we are looking forward to working with them again on several wedding next year. Their food is great, their service is wonderful and affordable. You can't go wrong with this talented duo!

Essence of the Thymes is one of the best caterers we've ever worked with! Delicious and creative foods, presented with incredible style. Wonderful!
