Yummy Greatness

I recommend Yummy Goodness for EVERYTHING. Every event, party, random Tuesday evening. Lori and chef Kellie and all of the staff were absolutely wonderful. From the first contact all the way through the day-of, Lori was extremely kind, patient and responsive. The tasting was fantastic. We were supposed to have four people there, but life happens, so it wound up being only my mom and me. We ate well, and then Lori brought out trays for us to take the leftovers home to those who couldn't make it. We all ate well for days. Lori was helpful in taking care of all the little changes and additions to the menu. She was great in advising about rentals for plates, glassware, silverware and other necessities.
We also used them for our bar/alcohol service. It was so nice to have them insured and ABC licensed. They worked with us on signature drinks for the cocktail hour and with the beer selection we wanted.
Lori and Rhonda from Hunt Club Farm worked well together and met on their own to decide the layouts and locations for food, bar and staging.
I wish I could go back and attend as a guest. As the bride, I didn't get to partake in the cocktail hour because we were taking pictures. The dinner was wonderful.
The one suggestion I would make would be to cut the chicken breasts in the Cordon Bleu in half or thirds. They were GIGANTIC! Usually that would be fantastic, but for a buffet, it was a little unwieldy. It would also be nice to have a mini cocktail snack table for the wedding party at the main photograph site. We didn't get to partake in any of the cocktail snacks except when the photographer brought some of the candied bacon over for tasting. It would be a nice touch and easy to put together.

The name says it all!

The Yummy Goodness Catering literally has the perfect name because it is a whole lot of Yummy Goodness but they are so much more than their food. My husband and I got married last week to the day in the middle of a nor'easter. Leading up to the day I think everyone was a little nervous about the weather and if the wedding was going to be able to take place. Yummy Goodness reached out to me to check in and make sure that I was doing okay, they reassured me that inside or out the day would be beautiful and they would be there to feed our guests. Thankfully the weather was perfect and our guests got to enjoy the most amazing food we have eaten outside together as planned. We went with the Tuscan Wedding menu with some changes to fit our needs and I can't recommend it enough! Our guests are still talking about it and we have enjoyed leftovers every day this week!

DELICIOUS food, great service!

This is the best wedding food I've ever had.... and my guests are still raving about it! We hired Yummy Goodness for our small, intimate beach wedding with 25 people total. We had them drop off the food and served ourselves, buffet-style.

They were incredible to work with throughout the whole process. We had an initial phone call with them before we hired them to discuss our ideas, have our questions answered, and get their ideas/professional opinions. They were so incredibly nice, had great suggestions, and it all was for a reasonable price. They checked in with us before the wedding, and were able to adjust our menu and headcount a few weeks before.

The food was absolutely delicious, and there was plenty of food for everyone - even some leftovers. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants their guests to be talking about their food months after the wedding! :)
