    The best wedding food we've had!

    When we first booked our venue (a Weddings of Distinction property), we were a little nervous that they had a caterer we HAD to use — what if we weren't impressed with the food? Well, we should never have worried! We were floored by the variety, quality, and quantity (!!) of food that our guests were treated to on our big day.

    We got our first taste of how lucky we were at our tasting, where we sampled a little bit of everything and were able to make little adjustments, like mixing and matching the various meats and sauces, to customize the menu to our exact taste.

    As for the big day, it exceeded all of our already high expectations. Starting with cocktail hour, the spread was truly eye-popping — there was something for everyone, and each hors d'oeuvre and station-based dish was as beautiful as it was tasty. The Chinese food station, the mini tacos, and the grilled cheese/tomato bisque shooters were the biggest hits — we had guests cornering the staff to chase down seconds of their favorite dishes.

    The entrees, though, are what really differentiates Merri-Makers from the competition — they were by far the best wedding mains we've ever had. People loved the fish, the filet mignon, and even the chicken and the vegetable napoleon. They accommodated every dietary restriction, even the more unusual ones. Dessert was the cherry on top. It was such a treat to have passed sweets in addition to our wedding cake. A little something for everyone!

    Really, I'm so impressed. So much better than the other wedding food we've enjoyed. We never thought people would walk away from our special day still raving about the food, but here we are!!!

    Best Caterer EVER!!!!!!

    We hired Merri-Makers when we decided to change our wedding from an indoor venue to my parents street in a tent. We had worked with them before (not for a wedding) and knew that they were awesome. Let me tell you, everything happens for a reason. They made our wedding more amazing than we ever could have hoped or dreamed possible. The food was off the charts. I am still getting calls with compliments about the food. They made sure that I had everything that I needed. I never felt stressed out when I was working with them. They really created an unforgettable experience for us and our guests. Patty is the most amazing. She made sure everything was taken care of at all times, that I had no freak outs, and throughout the night any time I needed anything I would turn around and she was there. We were sad to have to change our initial plan, but after all was said and done I am so so happy that everything worked out the way it did. It was the best day of our lives, and a huge part of that was Merri-Makers.

    Best caterers to work with

    Planning a wedding during a pandemic is not easy by any means. Without Merri makers, I probably wouldn’t have had my wedding in October. They are extremely accommodating, supportive and helpful while rearranging plans and working with me to ensure our guests were safe. We had to move everything outside and change a lot of things but all in all, it was a successful day. Gianna, Rick and the rest of the team went above and beyond to make our wedding day truly special and memorable. I can’t recommend them enough!
