They made one dream wedding come true

Is it possible to give them more than 5 stars?! I cannot speak enough words of praise. We planned a destination wedding and when I reached out to Milan Catering they brought me nothing but peace of mind. From the first contact they are sincere and caring. They listen and make sure to attend to your requests. Erin was always quick to respond and attentive. The chef’s food is beyond amazing. Melt in your mouth best food you’ll ever have. Laura Snow as a wedding planner…wow just wow. For an OCD planner like myself it was mind blowing to have someone you can completely rely and trust and just enjoy your day as you should. Shonni who was bartending (but also wedding plans) also was with me moments before going down the aisle and put me at ease, made me laugh and smile then was AMAZING to all our guests. Luke was our bridal Server and made sure we were taken care of during photos. Giving us all the hors d’oeuvres and being so attentive. I mean…what bridal party likes to miss out on the food and drinks for photos…we didn’t have to! Zach who was our senior event manager and made sure it went off without a hitch. The comments more people make about our wedding is wishing to have a service like Milan Catering in Peoria. They made our wedding a true true fairy tale. More than we could have imagined.

Simply Exceptional

There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how wonderful Milan made our daughter’s wedding. Our original contact was Erin who was very responsive and thorough, not to mention making us feel at ease from the very beginning. And then there was our coordinator Melanie Sommerschuh. Melanie was so kind and thoughtful and thorough. We met her the day before the wedding and by the end of the wedding she felt like family. She handled everything for us so all we had to do was enjoy the wedding.
If you are fortunate enough to have Melanie as your coordinator, you’re in good hands for sure.
And oh yeah, the food was excellent also.
