    Great food and team!

    Willaby's did an excellent job from start to finish. We received so many compliments on the food after the wedding was over, it was delicious! They were so flexible to all the changes I kept making. (I'm very indecisive lol!) and were patient with me through the whole process. I would definitely recommend!

    Amazing food and service!!

    We hired Willaby's for our reception meal and it was such a hit!! Everyone was raving about the food - especially the Mac & Cheese and Salmon. The Willaby's team was so wonderful to work with, they were organized, efficient and very helpful with not only catering but with our wedding planner as well! One thing I really appreciated was when I reached out to them last minute to see if they could leave some food items on the side for allergy restrictions and they did! So grateful for that as I should've told them sooner :) Thank you so much Willaby team for helping put together our dream wedding!!

Jean and her team at Willaby's are the best! We've worked together for over a decade now on dozens and dozens of weddings and I've yet to taste anything that wasn't delicious!! They're fantastic about meeting each couple's needs and wants, and bring a track record of experience and professionalism that is rare in the area. I couldn't recommend them any more highly!!
