Amazing Food and People

Michelle was so wonderful to work with and the food was AMAZING! Everyone loved it and is still talking about how great it was! We had a lot of people with dietary restrictions and food allergies and she was able to accommodate everyone without needing to make special meals. From our tasting to our wedding Michelle was prompt, organized and willing to adjust anything that we wanted. The meals she created were amazing. We highly recommend booking Tasteful Connections Catering if you want a delicious meal while working with wonderful people!

Experienced, easy to work with, and delicious!

We used Tasteful Connections to cater a post-wedding brunch, and we were so happy with our decision! Michelle Renee did a terrific job of helping us pick a menu appropriate for our event and space, and was really flexible in making the changes we wanted that would fit in our budget. You can tell that the team is really experienced because they were able to get our menu rolling really quickly, and had lots of ideas for how to make it varied and special while still fitting in our budget. They offered helpful advice about how much to order, and were clearly giving advice in OUR best interest, not theirs. The food arrived early, was set out carefully, and did not disappoint! People loved the breakfast casseroles, pastas, and sandwiches. The team made a whole separate set of items for our vegan/gluten free crowd, and it made the meal much more pleasant for everyone. We appreciate the Tasteful Connections team's hard work, and would gladly choose them for future events!

From start to finish, Michelle was fantastic. She wasn't just our caterer - she was an incredible soundboard for me when I was having issues with my venue, and she was a friend during this whole crazy process. She was very helpful when I told her I had a specific budget and helped me create everything from scratch and build beautiful (and delicious) reception stations that my guests raved about. On the day of the wedding, her staff was fantastic. I really enjoyed working with everyone there and I heard great things from my guests as well about the Tasteful Connections staff. At the end of the day, she wrapped up leftovers which I sent home with my MOH, and she wrapped up our cake for us so we got to enjoy it when we returned from our honeymoon. Thank you so much, Michelle!!
