    Great atmosphere, FOOD, and service!!

    From the day we met Sandra at the 2020 VisArts Wedding Fair she has put her best foot forward. It has been a great pleasure working with Ispire Catering and Events. My sister, Fiance, mother, mother-in-law, and I were very impressed with her food and decor set up. After talking to her for about 15 minutes we were pretty much sold and eager to talk to her further. I emailed Sandra to inquire about her services. I received immediate feedback and we set up a time to meet.
    Prior to our first meeting Sandra, she asked us about our wedding details to get an idea of what our vision was. When we arrived for our consultation, we were pleasantly surprised that Sandra took the initiative to set up her room decor with our colors and table design that we had told her. She reviewed her packages. Throughout the process Sandra was very communicative. We were able to have our tasting and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the excellent taste. Everyone loved Sandra! Once we signed with her, she even recommended Day of Coordinators, Stephanie and Karen. Another great characteristic of Sandra is her patience. Sandra worked with us to come up with our floor plans for both the ceremony and reception, menu, and was genuinely just a positive entity in our wedding journey. The day of our wedding, Sandra and her staff were extremely professional. We were able to start and finish on time and our guest were fed in record time! Sandra went ABOVE and BEYOND, surprising us with amazing decor add ons to make our ceremony and reception even more beautiful. She even provided decor for our cake and the bridal suite at the venue! After the wedding, we received many compliments from guests about our wedding décor and how good the food was. I highly recommend Ispire Catering to anyone looking for catering for a special event. Working with Sandra is like working with family and despite the pandemic altering our original date she was flexible and graceful with any changes that we made. You can tell that she truly loves what she does and that this is her passion!! My husband Justin and I look forward to working with Sandra for future events. Sandra was not just a vendor for us, we truly consider her a part of our family.

    Magical Wedding Day

    The day of the wedding , Sandra and her team really went above and beyond to make sure everything I wanted was included in the experience. She went the extra mile to add certain touches that I was not expecting but was very pleased with. I had a covid wedding and the planning process was stressful but it was all worth it when I seen the finished product from my vendor. I would recommend!

    Ispire Catering and events's reply:

    😘😘😘😘Wishing you and Zach the best life can bring! Thank you for trusting me with your special day!

    Best catering EVER!!!!

    Sandra was the best HANDS DOWN! She made my husband and myself feel more like family than her clients. Her food was perfect, decorations was perfect, EVERYTHING was PERFECT! She was on time with everything we asked for and if we needed something changed last minute, she got it done for us. I already told her when we have a baby shower she is the first one I am calling to cater it!
