  • Donna & her team we’re absolutely amazing on and before my wedding day. On my wedding day everything turned out perfect and the food was delicious. I received so many compliments on the food & how beautiful my decorations were at my venue. Can’t thank Donna and her team enough! Definitely recommend!!

  • Donna was a life saver in a million different situations (so was erica and Tina) but dhe was also the day coordinator who talked me through everything and kept my head above water. She is truly amazing

  • I have to say, when I saw Donna's rankings go down regarding the low ratings by a couple people, I was shocked. I could not have asked for a more professional put together dinner then I received. There was plenty of food, it was delicious and very well presented. There was no alcohol served at my event and the fact that the low remarks came from someone that mentioned "drunk groomsmen" numerous times in their statement makes me wonder how legit their statements are?!? I will definitely be using Donna and her team again for our fundraising dinners and I could not speak highly enough about them all. Thank you Donna, again!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much for the great support! I look forward to working with you again as well. Take care & come see me, would love to just sit and talk.

  • WOW!!! Amazing! I would definitely recommend Finishing Touch for any of your catering or decorating needs. Big or small. Donna (the owner) was hired by my cousin to cater our engagement party. It was then that after dealing with her team and tasting their food, I knew i wanted to deal with her to make our wedding the wedding of our dreams. We received more then we ever expected. She was also hired to decorate for us and unfortunately, unbeknown to us, there were a few items such as tablecloths and sashes for the chairs that she had ordered to save us money that did not come in the mail as they were suppose to. But Donna did what I don't think anyone else would have done for us. She drove an hour away to buy the items from a store and then since she lost time to decorate because she had to physically go pick up the items. She stayed ALL NIGHT LONG to decorate the reception hall. My mother and I arrived at 8:00am to drop a few things off and was shocked when she said she hadn't been home... Read more

  • Donna was amazing! We had a brunch time wedding, and she came up with a brunch menu that all of my guests loved! Donna also took care of my table and chair rentals, linens, centerpieces, and my bouquet. She wasn't just our caterer, I considered her our wedding planner as well. The day of the wedding, she was even able to calm me down as I was having a bridal meltdown when things started going wrong. Not even my own family could do that. Because of Donna, our wedding was a success! I would recommend her to anyone planning an event. She is a real life superhero!

Would I use her again ... Absolutely YES YES YES

  • Absolutely loved Donna and her team! The food was as expected, delicious and everyone enjoyed! She took a menu that I had previously picked from a different caterer and completely mocked it for me, for a much better price!! Even though she gave me a great price, the quality was still amazing. She also got bar top tables for me, the exact burlap runners with lace on them I wanted, and broke down/set up on time. Couldn't have been happier!

  • We used this firm for our 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration. Everything was done in a very professional manner and we would recommend them to our friends again and again.

  • Donna made wedding planning so easy! My mother lived in a different state and I was in my first year of teaching and Donna helped keep our wedding organized and made sure every detail was "checked off the list". She also made sure all our vendors were coordinated and that everyone followed the timeline. Finishing Touch Event catered my engagement party, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. We had yummy crab cakes at the wedding and they even helped pull off a surprise tater tot bar with all the toppings for my husband (his favorite)- everyone loved it! I will use them again for any future events that I need catered!

  • If you are expecting a stress free experience, with every last detail attended to, please contact this vendor. We had a unique situation, with my daughter getting married in Florida on the cruise ship. There we had her complete wedding with ceremony and reception. Many of our friends and family members could not attend due to the distance and the Holidays. We decided to have an additional reception for friends & family (in Virginia). A Celebration of Marriage , if you will. We wanted to re-create an event, with music, photo's, cake, a buffet,bar, and a full venue set-up , including dance floor. It was all beautiful!!! The Bride & Groom couldn't have had a better time. Every detail was exact to our wishes. Thank you so much for beautiful memories for years to come.

  • I would not recommend Finishing Touches for a wedding. Small parties, maybe. We were promised and paid for many things that we did not receive. One was the whole hog being smoked at the venue. This did not happen, but we paid extra to have a "pit master" on site. Pork was cooked an hour and a half away and brought to the venue where it was supposed to be kept warm. Guests complained of cold food when they were served. She cut the wedding cake and served it with her hands, that she did not have gloves on. Scraping icing off her fingers with the knife and serving it with the cake. Too many things to mention. Not pleased at all.

  • They were efficient and kept the food hot in spite of the fact that there was no kitchen in the venue. The guests enjoyed the food and there was plenty of it.

  • Donna and her team did a great job and took a lot of the stress out of planning my wedding from three hours away. She took care of catering, rentals, and the DJ, and I also used her day-of-coordination services. Once we had all the details worked out, the day before and day of the wedding I had very little to do. Also, we did a burger bar with toppings specified by us for the food and everything was so delicious! A lot of people complimented us on the food and setup of everything, and I owe most of that to Donna and her team and the other vendors she coordinated! Definitely recommended if you're getting married on the Middle Peninsula!

  • We were excited to find Finishing Touch and work with them. While they were on time and very flexible with the changes we made along the way, there were a few things that we were not happy about. In general the sauces that were suppose to be with some items were either not set out or were not near the item they went with. From a food stand point they were only responsible for three side dishes, we handled all the rest, and one of them was not very tasty at all. However, the bartender was fantastic and everyone raved about the coffee. They need a spot below on the "recommendation" for notes. I would recommend, but make sure they understood the issues we had. So unfortunately I have to say no.

  • Finishing Touch Events catered our daughters wedding. Our daughter wanted a buffet style service and everyone commented on how delicious the food was and there was more than enough to go around a couple of times. Donna is very professional yet super friendly and easy to work with. We had an amazing stress free day because Donna and her employees took control and organized the whole event.
