  • There really is not enough room to provide all the POSITIVE feedback for Food For Thought. This was hands down the best decision that we made for the wedding. When we made the 1.5 hour trip out to meet with Gina & Mary we knew almost instantly that they would be our caterers. It felt like we had known them forever, and it felt like we were the most important client! When in reality we knew how busy they always are, but it never shows! Gina and her team just know what they are doing, and the food and service show that. When we had questions, Gina would always suggest something and I always knew to take her advice since she is the expert and it always worked out. They went and saw our venue ahead of time, and were always so responsive and helpful with EVERYTHING! The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, they knew exactly what to do and everything was PERFECT! and the food, it literally will be some of the best food you will ever eat! We had food at the tasting and I was floored a... Read more

You are super talented and creative, positive, uplifting to be around, always smiling and receptive to ideas and input, and so very kind. You hosted a fabulous wedding celebration and we could not be happier that we got to be a part of it! We will remember you always and hope to cross paths again. Thank you for choosing Food For Thought Catering!!!!

  • My daughter and I had met Gina several years ago. When Sarah got engaged I thought it would be a great idea to have Gina cater the wedding. As it turned out she had also become the new owner of the wedding venue that we wanted so it was a win-win situation. I knew from online reviews what a great reputation she had and I told my guests that they were in for a treat. We were not disappointed! Everything was so fresh and in season and looked beautiful. The hors d'oeuvres were to die for! And don't get me started about the desserts. Our guests raved about everything. I have been to many weddings and Gina's food was by far the best I've ever had.

    Thank you so much Bonnie dear for this amazing review. I adore you and Sarah and feel so happy I got to serve your family at one of the most important events in your lives. Now let’s get together again for old time sake. :)

  • I can't rave enough about Gina and will be posting this review in multiple places. She was a pleasure to work with--I thought wedding planning was supposed to be stressful! Gina worked hard with us to design a menu that reflected our favorite things as a couple. She gave us great advice on buffet vs. family style and why we shouldn't do a champagne toast (expensive, goes to waste). Her knowledge and expertise were so helpful. We appreciated her candor, her help, and her support. Her staff was EXCELLENT and made sure we took time to eat. They even saved us all of our leftovers, which we have been enjoying with family and friends all week. If you're not sure who to hire for your catering or wedding needs, look no further than Gina and Food for Thought!

    Thank you so very much for this glowing and thoughtful review. I truly enjoyed working with you and thought your reception was just wonderful. It was a pleasure to serve you and your guests and we appreciate the gracious and positive compliments we received all night. I wish you the best as you embark together as a married couple. Your love is evident and it is beautiful to witness.

  • We use FFT Catering for our wedding four years ago and loved it so much we thought we’d use them again. When it was time for our son’s baptism we contacted Gina to see if she would be willing to cater the event. Without hesitation she was willing and ready to make it happen! She quickly put together our menu without missing any small details. She was more than accommodating and had great suggestions for the smaller party. We will continue to think of and use FFT Catering as we have nothing but positive feelings towards Gina and her team! Thank you for helping make our day so special!

  • 10's, 10's, 10's across the board!!! Wow. OK, I cannot say ENOUGH about how fabulous this company is and how amazing Gina, the owner, was to work with. From the get go, so made us feel at ease. After several emails back and forth, we met with her at a local Panera to discuss what our vision was for our wedding buffet. Well, we didn't actually HAVE a vision. We just really liked food and wanted to make sure a few of our favorites were there. Gina was the one who helped us put it all together. She was so personable and friendly that we felt right away we were in good hands. When she gave us the sample meals based on our conversation, we were absolutely blown away. The food was SO GOOD and she gave us so much!! I looked at a few other caterers online, just to be thorough, but none compared. When we found out later that Gina had bought the venue our wedding was being held at, we took it as the final confirmation that she was the right one and booked her! Again, I cannot stress enough...

    I'm so blown away by this fantastic review! Sarah, thank you so very much!!! This means the world to me and I cannot wait to share it with my staff. We all loved working with you and Will and we enjoyed your guests so much. What a fun and appreciative crowd. We received so many compliments and gracious remarks. :) It was such a grand celebration and a fabulous time. I knew the moment we met at Panera that we were a good fit. ;) It was very hard for me not to tell you that I was going to be the new owner of Moonstone Manor when your wedding date arrived, but I just kept the faith that you would choose Food For Thought Catering and we would be totally connected! And then I received the confirmation that you indeed choose FFTC. You had such a wonderful vision and attitude throughout the planning and tickled me to hear you talk about your love of food...my kind of girl! We so enjoyed cooking for you. I hope we connect again, sometime along this journey. Come back and visit. Our best to you and may you have continued happiness. xo

  • One big thing guests remember about a wedding is the food, and Food for Though Catering did not disappoint! The food was delicious and the presentation was phenomenal. Gina was great to work with; very professional, flexible, and accommodating. She gave great input when creating our menu and offered a large selection to create the perfect meal. She was even willing to create dishes that weren't necessarily listed as a selection. Gina was very accommodating when it came to tastings as she wanted to make sure we felt comfortable and were happy with what would be served. Gina always put us first and did everything possible to make our day perfect. In addition, Gina's staff is superb and courteous. We have talked with so many guests since our wedding and everyone continues to rave about the food. Food for Thought Catering is definitely worth every penny!

  • From the very first time we met Gina, we knew she would be the perfect fit to our wedding day. Her eye for detail and our needs was always a top priority. We had an outside wedding so Gina recommended wonderful foods that complemented our style. We asked to have grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters and Gina made this happen. Gina uses local foods which is always a plus. We would recommend Gina and Food for Thought for anyone!!

    Thank you so much for this lovely review! The grilled cheese and tomato soup duo was a big hit. We received a lot of positive feedback on this and the other menu items you selected. You and Josh were so delightful through all of the planning. Your wedding was perfect and I wish you a lifetime of happiness and love...and lots more grilled cheese and tomato soup days. :)

  • Some of the best wedding food we have had, and we got MANY compliments on the food and the service. I would strongly recommend them, and if you need some gluten free items, they can do that too.

  • Go for it! Book your event with Gina and Food For Thought! You will not be sorry! Our daughter just got married at our home and I can honestly say there is nothing that I would change about the food or the service we received from Gina and her team. From the first time I talked with Gina on the phone and she shared helpful advice to the time she came with Mary to our home with a delicious sampling of brunch foods, we were impressed with Gina and decided to have her cater the wedding. Things went so smoothly the day of, you would have thought we had done it many times before! Many guests commented on how delicious the food was and how it was beautifully displayed as well. Both were important to us. The entire team is professional but friendly and gracious. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Thanks, Gina and staff and may God continue to bless the work of your hands!

    Ellen, Lauren and her dad had me in tears, joyful tears, as I witnessed their love, respect and adoration for each other. It was the highlight of my day. They are delightful in every way-the whole family is darling and beautiful. And then to see Lauren join with Seth, well that was just as precious and glorious. My heart melted over and over! Their menu was a simple brunch-hummus, fresh veggies, a decadent French toast bake, country egg and cheese bake, sausage-onion-potato hash, fresh fruit, a beautiful salad with goat cheese, red onion, candied pecans and an apple-citrus poppyseed dressing, with assorted mini pastries, lemonade, iced tea, coffee and tea-just perfect for a sunny afternoon brunch on your gorgeous property! I felt like I was in heaven. Blessings on Mr. and Mrs. Dunn as they start their journey as a married couple together. There's no doubt they will have a marriage filled with everything that counts.

  • Gina and her team were the absolute best! Their food is fantastic and the service is even better! We had our wedding this past May and everything was just perfect. Sadly, I wasn’t able to try all the hors d’oeuvres due to taking our beautiful photos but I heard that all my guests loved them! You have to get the meatballs! They are bangin’! Since the hors d’oeuvres were great, I’m sure you can guess that the dinner was even better! We did a fajita buffet that way everyone could have whatever they wanted and how much they wanted. Both my husband and I went for seconds! The food was amazing but great food can’t happen without a great team and the people of Food for Thought were wonderful! If I had any questions or concerns somehow the team already had an answer or had the problem solved! They made my day a stress free, wonderful day. Oh! And we can’t forget the bartending team! We had two specialty drinks and beer and wine. I had no idea how to make one of the drinks, I ju... Read more

    Hayley, It is such a joy to read reviews like this. It is all about your happiness. Thank you so much for this. We strive to offer the best service and quality fare. It was so enjoyable to work with you from the beginning. You were so excited and enthusiastic and that made the planning fun.

Guests loved choosing just what they wanted and they loved going back for seconds too! :) Your guests were so complimentary to us all evening and that was rewarding. Overall, you had an amazing celebration and we hope you have a lifetime of beautiful memories from your special day.

  • We happened upon Food for Thought when our previous caterer had to cancel due to a job change. Gina and her team did a great job in providing a creative and fresh menu for us at a reasonable price. Everyone at our event was thrilled with the food and came back for seconds later in the day. Highly recommend!

  • The food was amazing. Many people at the wedding told us it was the best wedding food they have ever had. I am gluten free (celiac) and she worked with us to adjust recipes and ingredients so that I (bride) could eat everything at the wedding!! She was also very accommodating of other food allergies of guests. I would use this company again in a heartbeat!
