Chicago folks planning your wedding in MKE, hire Zilli!

We had the absolute best experience with Zilli. When we started our caterer search, we were recommended to Zilli by our venue. There were a few other vendors we reached out to, but Zilli had a range of experiences, price ranges, offerings and ability to customize your day that the choice was obvious. What also sealed the deal was trying the food. Jessica is the best!! She set up a private tasting for myself, my husband and both sets of our parents and we had a day of tasting. The attention to detail was apparent from the start when we walked up to the door and saw our last names on the door "Fowell-Tomlin Tasting". We got to try 6 different appetizers, three salads, three entrees, a bunch of different sauces to pair with our entree, sides and desserts. We had such a nice time and it was great to be able to discuss the menu together and also things like linens and be able to physically see them.

Everything leading up to the wedding from Jessica and Krystal, (literal dream team!) was clear and concise. There was no question of what was due, when it was due, what info they needed from us. Their portal was easy to use and kept everything really organized. Jessica was so sweet and entertained all of my weird allergy restriction requests and phone calls to clarify things.

Now for the actual day. Haleigh was our day-of, on-site coordinator and she was awesome. They made sure that Tom and I were fed. They made sure to put aside one of each of our passed apps so we could eat when we got to our table because they knew we were mingling and taking pictures during cocktail hour.

Everyone raved about the food! I have some brutally honest family and their big thing is making sure food is hot. Food was hot!! I was offered an appetizer during cocktail hour and bit in and was shocked to see steam coming out. Potato and pea samosas were a HIT and everyone loved the chorizo croquettes. So many people asked me what the croquettes were post wedding. A real highlight. We had SO many allergies at our wedding. Zilli made sure there was no peanut contamination, all allergies (gluten, pecans, etc.) had meals that were wrapped and delivered to those folks ensuring no cross contamination. They were truly the best. One of our guests decided they no longer wanted the chicken.... and asked for beef instead and they accommodated her (which was above and beyond what they needed to do!!).

We did a dessert table and everyone LOVED the chocolate mousse and creme brûlée. They had everything with little signs and I actually got asked if someone could borrow my dessert stands because they loved them, but Zilli sourced all of that for us! We had late night pizza which everyone said was a hit as the liquor set in.
