    Highly Recommend!!!

    We are so happy we chose Tasteful Occasions for our wedding! We utilized their catering, coordinator, and bartending services. This included a clean up and set up service. We did not have to lift a finger all day - Crystal, our coordinator, along with her team, took care of everything!! The staff was all very pleasant and attentive to our guests. The food is incredible and we had no issues setting up our tasting and menu choices. Crystal and Kim were easily accessible for any questions or concerns that came up along the planning process. The forms they provided to assist in planning were incredibly helpful and detailed, which ensured clear communication when it came to event timeline and decorations. Those reasons alone would be enough to make TOC a great choice for any wedding. But on top of all it, TOC cares about their customers. When food prices exploded during COVID, TOC reached out to us and let us know they would use the prices we agreed on when we signed our contract and absorb the extra cost. Again, we are SO happy we chose TOC for our wedding, and we highly recommend them!!!

    Best food and service ever!!

    Searching for a caterer for your wedding is hard work. We wanted options and great food. Kim and her team went above and beyond what we could have asked for. When setting up the tasting everything was fresh and she was so helpful in following what we asked for. In March when everything was getting shut down we were nervous about our wedding in October 2020. Kim answered all of my questions, texted me, called me, emailed me, to make sure I was taken care of! We were going back and forth with so many things! We did a COVID wedding with less guests than originally planned. We even changed our venue 3 months before and Kims response was we can do it!! Without hesitation they went above and beyond serving the cocktail hour covered and just making everyone feel safe. Everything was fresh and cooked right on site! We got so many compliments about the food, the staff and bartenders! They even made sure our guests with special diets had a delicious meal other than what was served! We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with! Thank you Tasteful Occasions for everything! We hope to be at one of our events again and enjoy your lovely food!!
