    Food was amazing!

    I can't say enough about PrimOvations - the food was absolutely incredible! We received many compliments on how good it was. The team was great to work with leading up to the wedding day, and helped revise our quote multiple times based on things we would think of later in the planning process. Not only did they take care of the food, but they also were our bartending service, and I have to say, it was so nice having one company to do both!

    Delicious and Fantastic

    Shelly and Patrick were absolutely wonderful to work with. The food was delicious and service professional and friendly. They had every detail covered and worked with us on the menu that we wanted for our wedding day. They put an amazing appetizer display out that we received rave reviews about as well as the wonderful and delicious dinner and desert table that was prepared. We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend them for any event. We will be a customers for life! Thank you Shelly, Patrick and your team. Bravo’
