Margaret was simply AMAZING!!! She was creative and understanding of the interesting "requests" of food I had to have at the wedding even though they did not exactly go with the theme. She has a great personality making it easy to work with her. The mac-and-cheese is to die for!!!

Margaret catered my daughter’s December 15th wedding and literally every guest asked me who catered and raved about the food. It is the best food you’ll ever eat!
