    Beyond amazing

    Everything was absolutely perfect. It was everything we imagined it would be, but better. They were able to bring our vision to life and it was beautiful. The food was beyond compared to anything we have ever had. Our guests are still raving about how good everything was. They even gave us an entire plate of apps at our sweetheart table to enjoy if we didn’t get enough during cocktail hour. The staff was phenomenal and made sure we were taken care of. Everyone was so professional and on top of things. We can’t thank them enough! They were also so quick to pack everything up efficiently and carefully and that made our departure so easy. Kate is the most professional, personable, and genuine person. She kept everything in order; she was always there for recommendations, questions, and to keep us calm throughout this entire process. She is a true asset, and we appreciate everything she did for us and with us during wedding planning.

    Megan, Thank you so much for all of your kind words! It was such a special day and our whole team was honored to be a part of it! We wish you all of the best and hope to see you soon!

    Excellent Food Excellent Stafff

    It is difficult to put into words how thrilled we were with Margaret and her staff at Nicole’s Catering. People in the industry know her and defer to her expertise. She met us with a suggested menu and timeline. We deviated slightly from the menu but held firm to the timeline. The food was phenomenal; it has been 3 weeks since our event and our friends are still talking about the Pork Shank and dessert buffet.
    Prior to the event we were able to enjoy a tasting and sampled everything before finalizing. We opted to do 2 signature cocktails; the mixologist prepared 2 unique drinks that matched our daughters perfectly.
    All night long the staff were hustling and bustling. Friends and family were given 3 meal choices at a sit down dinner. There was no issue in making the vegetarian dish vegan. The salad was superb, we are not fully sure what was in the dressing, but it was light and tasty. No one left hungry.
    Finally, in the midst of a fiasco a week before. Margaret and her team stepped up to help advise. This was something only someone with experience in the industry could offer and made it all work out. We will be forever grateful to all she and her staff did for us.

    Nicole's Special Events & Catering Company's reply:

    Deborah - thank you so much for leaving this wonderful review! We are so glad to hear how amazing everything was and very grateful to have been a part of this special day for your family!

    Amazing!!!

    I really cannot thank Nicole’s Catering enough for making our big day better than we ever could have imagined. They took care of EVERYTHING, making the day so stress free and enjoyable! Not only was their staff super helpful throughout the entire day—especially Jess, the head of the catering staff, who kept me updated on everything and even blocked our sweetheart table so we could eat our meal without interruption—but the food and bar services were also phenomenal!! Our guests loved every minute of our wedding thanks to Nicole’s. I would HIGHLY recommend Nicole’s for any wedding or big event, truly amazing service!!

    Nicole's Special Events & Catering Company's reply:

    Stephanie! Thank you both so much for allowing us to be apart of your wedding plans! It's people like you that make what we do so fun! Congratulations and we wish you all the best!

I have been working with Nicole's for over 13 years and can say that not only is their food excellent, and their service is top notch! Margaret works with each client individually to create a menu that is tailor made for your event. Her waitstaff are fun, professional and extremely thorough! They actually catered my wedding and I could not have been happier! I love working with Nicole's as they definitely go the extra mile to make your event perfect!
