    Great Experience!

    Gourmet Galley did an amazing job catering our October wedding! All of the food was awesome starting with apple cider donuts as guests arrived, the unique passed appetizers, beautifully plated main entrees, the incredible display of mini desserts. All of our guests raved about the food. The staff at the wedding was so pleasant and attentive. Everything was exactly how we pictured it and went off without a hitch thanks to the Gourmet Galley team!

    Cannot Recommend Gourmet Galley Highly Enough!!

    Gourmet Galley did our wedding in September of 2021 at Priam Vineyards, which made them not only our caterer, but also our primary planning and day-of coordinating team. I honestly don’t know how we would have done this wedding without them, and cannot recommend Gina, Denise, and the whole team highly enough.



    Gina met with us a few times throughout the process, from contracting where we talked through potential options and possibilities, our group tasting (which still make me drool when I think about it), setting our menu and starting to lay out our day, and then final meetings to discuss details and confirm everything. Each time she was the consummate professional, organized and prepared, and ready with innovative and creative ideas and suggestions to help make our day truly ‘ours.’ This doesn’t even begin to touch on the countless emails we exchanged, and she was nothing but patient with our questions and concerns. I also want to commend her for pushing back on ideas I had that were, quite frankly, not good – she was kind and polite but her expertise shown through as she explained her recommendations and guided us towards a better option. She helped us design a schedule and flow that would work for us and our guests and arranged the details of the day to create our vision and a great guest experience. And then she handed us off to Denise for our rehearsal and day-of organization…



    I want Denise to run every aspect of my life. It’s that simple – she was beyond incredible. She was as buttoned up as they come, ready with answers before I could ask questions, and despite being at weddings almost every weekend, was genuinely excited for us and our day. Our bridal party and parents even noticed how much she loves her job – and just how good at is she is. She held our hands through the rehearsal, dealt with day-of delays and hiccups like they were nothing, and met us after the ceremony with drinks and apps in hand and a smile on her face. She ran the day and managed our vendors and details to create the most amazing day and experience, and we couldn’t be more grateful to have had her there with us.



    That doesn’t even touch on the food. Everything we had was great. Everything out guests had was great. Salmon was perfectly cooked, short ribs fell off the bones, and apps were talked about for days. The signature drinks were unique and delicious, and the staff was quick, courteous, and very much on their game. We have no regrets except that we couldn’t order 3 of each main course each!

    All you could want from a caterer and more!

    Gourmet Galley was INCREDIBLE! I cannot say enough good things about Jen, Kim, and the staff! They are extremely easy to work with. From my initial inquiry, they were responive and attentive. I can’t count how my emails I sent to Jen- all of which she responded to quickly and thoroughly- to help me create the day of my dreams. She helped me stay super organized- down to the littlest details. The food is amazing! We were blown away at our tasting- which is a ton of fun!- and our guests raved about their meals. It’s some of the best wedding food I’ve had. They also provide a couple’s attendant- who was great- and ensures you actually get to eat on your wedding day. In all, the level of service and food is unparalleled with Gourmet Galley and they will make any event better!
