    Couldn’t be happier!

    We hired Simple Pleasures Catering for our wedding in September 2019 and it was probably the best decision we made! First of all, the food is AMAZING! We were blown away at our very first tasting. Our guests raved about how amazing our food tasted, the beautiful presentation and the generous portions! Diana, Tina and the entire team at Simple Pleasures were so kind, incredibly professional, and always willing to help us in any way they could. Their customer service is truly above and beyond - they always put any of our planning concerns (even beyond menu/catering, etc) at ease! Simple Pleasures played a major role in making our dream wedding a reality!!

    Diana is amazing

    Wow! Our family has nothing but good things to say about simple pleasures and Diana. We have had her cater two different events for us now- a plated meal for 50 for a business Christmas party and then buffet style for 280 at my wedding. She overdelivered on both. She was helpful and gave suggestions when needed. She also is creative and unique in her dishes which makes for a memorable event for guests. We love Diana and the staff!

    Father of the Bride

    If you want to worry about every detail in your event, go elswhere. If you want a totally seamless, don't worry about a thing event, Daina and her team at Simple Peasures is where you need to be. Our daughter's wedding was at our house with 160 guests. There was not a moment when Diana wasn't telling me...."we got this" and from planning to wedding day to rental pick up, they were involved and on top of it. I couldn't have asked for more support from her and her team. They are the best. MC

    Extremely professional, warm and friendly!!!

    Simple Pleasures has been amazing from the start. Dina and her staff has always been easy to get a hold of, to schedule appointments, discuss details etc. The morning before our wedding Diana called, very excited when I answered the phone she started with "Good Morning Beautiful Bride" those thoughtful touches was exactly I needed to know she had everything handled and was going to make everything so beautiful! I worked with Tina a lot as well, she is so responsive and answers any questions. Simple Pleasures, handled, food, serving, rentals, setup and tear down. The entire wedding was stunning! We did working small bits and grazing station. Which we had lots of complements on with taste and presentation. Her staff made sure to bring us plates of food and even sent us home with to-go boxes! We would absolutely recommend them to anyone, and would hire them again for another party!!!!

    Excellent!

    Diana and Simple Pleasures were very helpful from the very beginning. She helped us with not only planning our menu but also with great advice for setting a theme or style for the wedding, and once on site gave us additional help with planning our venue set up. Diana and her team went above and beyond all our expectations, and the meal and service were excellent. We couldn’t have been happier!

    Pleasure to work with. So kind and care about the bride.

    I had booked Diana Burke with Simple Pleasures catering for my wedding in 2018. She is very kind and easy to work with. About three months before my wedding, my venue shut down. Diana went above and beyond to help me find a new venue, and when I found a new venue she was kind enough to move her whole crew 1.5hrs to the new venue with one month notice (mind you, this was a 300 person wedding). She and her staff were extremely professional and they are also very fairly priced. And the food was delicious!

    Love Simple Pleasures!

    I have had the privilege to work with Simple Pleasures as a bride and as a planner. As a planner planning my own wedding I knew of many caterers but was only confident in one. The food is amazing but the organization, attention to detail and care for your family/friends is what takes them above and beyond.

    We are so thankful for our amazing brides and planners! If we had a way to clone you, Kim, we would. You were the perfect bride: creative, thoughtful, talented and beautiful inside and out. Here's to many more celebrations together, cheers!

    I worked with Diana at Simple Pleasures and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Diana was great to work with, and her prices are beyond reasonable.
    Our food was mouth-watering good, with generous portions to boot. Diana also sourced many of the ingredients from local vendors and farms for us; something that was very important to us and quite a challenge in the winter months! Diana learned a traditional German recipe just for our wedding, as it is a bit of a family tradition and we really wanted to serve it for dessert. She didn't just copy the recipe, but went through multiple tries to get it just right. My picky German family was blown away and still talks about it. We discussed the menu and had a tasting, but Diana was the real creative force behind the menu and we are so, so happy we put our trust in her.

    Simple Pleasures provided a wonderful meal, and great service for our reception. Even though it was sometimes difficult to reach Diana, we eventually got our details worked out. In the end, she met all our expectations. Her crew was easy to work with, and provided us the level of service we were hoping for. All our guests were delighted with their meal, and the wonderful dessert bar.

    Diana and her team are fantastic. We had so much fun planning with them, and the food was AMAZING! We did a variety of less traditional things - serving family style, having an ice cream bar for dessert, appetizers and cocktails available before the ceremony - all of which Diana's team handled with ease. The Simple Pleasures team was quick with set up - exactly the way we envisioned - and they handled the breakdown at the end of the night.

    I can't recommend Diana and the Simple Pleasures team enough!
