Truly a Perfect Setting
"What would you like to eat?" A question every bride longs to hear and the question Deb Diehl asked. It was the most relieving question to have been asked amid the when, where, how, who myriad I was getting. She took me privately through Hilltop House and she made me feel like I was the owner of the whole property. We were planning a grand party and she was my personal assistant. I was never pushed or rushed or bombarded with emails and calls to make a decision or roped with "we have others interested." Even when my parents and I were running late on the day of our second tour she was understanding and spoke to my parents in detail everything as she had with me. We all were so welcomed and pleased to work with such a wonderful company and to know that there was no cookie cutter package or rules it would truly be MY wedding in anyway she could accommodateSent on 01/07/2020

Perfect Setting Created a "Perfect" Wedding Reception
Jerry Diehl, the owner of Perfect Setting Catering in Paoli was a pleasure to work with . He was responsive, polite and very personable. The moment we sampled the food during the tasting, our daughter knew that she wanted this caterer and other tastings paled in comparison. On the day of the wedding he did not disappoint. The staff was very polite and pleasant so the entire experience was very professional. Many of our guests happen to be "foodies" and great cooks and they commented favorably. Even my cousin who was the owner of a very successful restaurant as well as a past catering director for one of Philly's major hotels said that it was the best wedding he ever attended. Kudos to Jerry and his staff!! As the mother of the bride, I was very pleased with the results.Sent on 06/20/2019

The name is the experience - Perfect Setting!
Magical!Sent on 01/02/2019
Everything was perfect; as the name indicates - the absolutely perfect setting!!!
This was a second wedding for my now husband and I; we are older and wanted a joyous, fun event.
In comes Perfect Setting....the service impeccable; staff friendly and accommodating; while unobtrusive and the food was delectable.
And the loving care shown to our guests and especially to us as the bride and groom; there was even a plate of food given to each of us, so we were assured to eat!
We felt so special that Deb was on site for our entire reception; we were so grateful she were there! Nothing was overlooked.
Food was fabulous - we opted for heavy hors d'oeuvres and dessert instead of a sit-down dinner. We wanted our guests to mingle, enjoy each other's company and partake of great food and drink. Our goal was for everyone to have a wonderful time and leave satisfied and happy. Success!!!
We heard nothing but rave reviews about the food. We are thoroughly enjoying the leftovers right now; they were packaged perfectly to keep each selection fresh.
And Deb gave us such sage advice on the amount of food needed and the type that would appeal most to our invitees. She also suggested amount of spirits for the number of guests - no guessing on our part.
The desserts were amazing! We opted out of a wedding cake and went with cheesecake, chocolate dipped strawberries and lady kisses (almond macaroons, marshmallow and chocolate). The cheesecake came with various toppings, the chocolate surrounding the strawberries was just plain decadent and the lady kisses - I think I ate 10 of them myself. Absolutely exquisite and so delicious!!!
As I mentioned previously, every detail was attended to - both during the reception and afterward. Left over hors d'oeuvres were packaged separately for our enjoyment afterwards. Even our champagne glasses were wrapped and tucked away in bubble wrap.
This experience was nothing but pleasure. Our sincerest, heartfelt thanks to Deb and her staff. We will be recommending you to all of our friends.
Perfect Setting Catering won us over pretty quickly, and that's why they are on our preferred list! Not only are they efficient, but their work is done beautifully, and is truly customized to the needs of the client, reflecting personalized visions. Jerry and Deb make their clients, and fellow vendors, feel like part of the family. No wonder these folks have such a fantastic reputation :)
