    Excellent experience for my daughter's wedding cake!

    We had an excellent experience with Gayle Orth Catering. They did the wedding cake for my daughter's wedding in August 2019. The cake was delicious (carrot cake). It was a pleasure to work with them. They were efficient in their communication with me. They also creatively adjusted the order to accommodate the grooms dislike of coconut - the bottom layer had coconut and the top did not! Everyone was happy! They also packed the cake very well so that it was safe for our 1 hr travel with it in the back of our car to the wedding venue. They thought of everything and made it all so easy. I would highly recommend Gayle Orth Catering for your wedding.

    Heart Warming Celebration

    Gayle Orth, and her staff, are simply the best! Our daughter and her (now) husband, wanted an outdoor wedding celebration in our garden. Gayle prepared a sketch of our yard with tables & chairs for our guests, umbrellas (for hot sun or pouring rain, it鈥檚 the PNW!), a bar, absolutely everything needed to make our wedding party flow perfectly. She provided menu options, based on our preferences. Gayle listened to our feedback, and provided expert advise based on her years of experience. The food was delicious, fresh and well prepared, beautifully plated and individually served. Our daughter鈥檚 wedding celebration was lovely.

    Gayle Orth Catering's reply:

    Thank you Linda, Craig, Maddie and Jesse! It was truly our honor to help celebrate this wonderful event. Thank you so very, very much for your kind words; it was truly our pleasure! It was beautiful, personal and so very special.

    Amazingly incredible!!!

    My husband and I truly have never been so impressed by a team of amazing individuals. Gayle and her staff made sure every single detail of our wedding was handled with the utmost of care. They went above and beyond in every way. Our guests all commented on the quality of food and the friendliness of her staff. They attended to us as if we were family, but with the utmost of professionalism. I would recommend Gayle (and have) to any one and everyone. She and her team are nothing short of spectacular. Gayle made the most important day of my life exceptionally special. I can't possibly thank her and her team enough!!!
