  • We really liked our experience with Simply Fresh. Of all the caterers we reached out to at the beginning of the process, they were the most responsive and the most willing to tailor their proposal to match what we wanted. They also offered us a wedding coordinator as a part of the catering package, which we opted for and would highly recommend. Our coordinator was so helpful and made many great suggestions for us throughout the planning process. The food was delicious and the menu came together really nicely. It felt like their big focus was making our wedding day as easy for us as possible, and that attention and dedication was evident. Highly recommend.

  • We selected Rocklands Farm Winery as our venue, and they have an exclusive agreement with Simply Fresh Events— we couldn’t have gotten more lucky. SFE is a one stop shop— they cater, bartender, they organize your buses and rental bathrooms, they even pick up your Krispy Kreme donuts for your donut wall. From day one, SFE has been flexible, supportive, and has basically said yes to anything we wanted. Our wedding coordinator Nicole was a dream to work with. She was organized and a true professional. On our wedding day, we walked out to the perfect venue looking exactly how we imagined it— and that’s all thanks to her. SFEs food is DELICIOUS. No joke, my husband is a foodie and is super critical. He was impressed by both SFEs food and service. SFE also made sure we have safety precautions in place due to COVID-19 but worked with us every step of the way to make sure we still had the day we envisioned. If you get to choose your caterer, go with Simply Fresh Events. If you fell i... Read more

  • I wanted to take the time to thank the staff at Simply Fresh Events for helping to make my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding so wonderful Honestly, it was perfect! Your entire team, from our first contact through to packing up the car, made the experience as stress free as humanly possible. We received so many comments about the beautiful set up of the tables and barn, the kind staff and the food! The food was exceptional. Our guests couldn’t stop raving. One guest said “there is always at least one thing that isn’t that great, but not this time! It was all fantastic”. The entire staff could not have been lovelier. And given that we had to do this all so quickly, you all helped make this experience a joy, even given the insane circumstances. Truly, it was perfect. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

  • My experience with Simply Fresh Events and specifically, Nicole Ryan as our coordinator, was nothing short of spectacular. Since the moment we met Nicole, she hit the ground running making sure that every single detail of our wedding was perfect. She is extraordinarily organized, timely and has so much expertise to offer. My husband and I started our wedding planning process with so much anxiety but that changed as soon as Nicole began working with us. The day of the wedding was an absolute dream thanks to her planning, decorating and problem solving. Every single person who attended our wedding made sure to tell us that it was one of the best they had ever been to. As much as I would love to take the credit, Nicole and the team at Simply Fresh deserve ALL OF IT. The food was absolutely delicious and unlike most brides & grooms, we were actually able to eat as Nicole made sure to have our meals plated and served to us while the rest of the guests were in the buffet line.

  • We worked with Simply Fresh Events for our wedding reception. From the very beginning of the planning process, the team was very communicative, straight-forward and helpful for my bride and I, answering our questions promptly via email and phone. When we went to their offices to do our tasting, and were grateful for the little touches that they used to make us feel welcome and appreciated. We worked with Jocelyn as our day-of coordinator, and were very impressed with her professionalism and how she was able to help tie down all of our logistics so easily, including arranging shuttles between the venue and our hotel. When one of our guests indicated some dietary restrictions, the team followed up with her directly to make sure that she got to enjoy a great meal as well. The catering staff were polite, courteous and professional, and all of our guests were raving about how great the food was! Simply Fresh played a major role in making our wedding a perfect day, and if you're looking ... Read more

  • Simply Fresh is the best! Jocelyn and her team were the most wonderful people to plan and and coordinate our wedding. The food was incredible, the presentation was beautiful, and Jocelyn made sure we did not have to worry about a thing and could simply enjoy the amazing day and celebrations with our friends and family. We had a good amount of rain and Jocelyn and her team handled any last minute changes due to weather and allowed us to just be in the moment. I cannot say enough good things about Simply Fresh and cannot recommend them highly enough!

  • This is our second year working with Simply Fresh Events and they killed it again! Everything went smoothly from start to finish, the staff was so friendly and easy to work with, and I received rave reviews about the food. Especially the salmon, so many comments on how good it was. The catering team worked very well with the venue. I literally just had to show up! Everything was taken care of.

  • We had mixed feelings with Simply Fresh. We drove out from DC after work in rush hour for our first tasting, and when we showed up they had a scheduling issue on their end and thought we were coming a different day. However, they owned the mistake and said if we could wait an hour they could make the entire menu. The food was great, and they nailed it during the wedding. Their staff during the wedding was wonderful and extremely professional and got high reviews from our guests. They did a wonderful job setting up the space and preparing the day of the wedding. However, a huge problem we had was that we had a wedding on a farm and used their shuttles before and after. One shuttle went to the wrong hotel, found 4 guests, and tried to bring them to the space without going to the correct hotel and almost left behind 30 people. On the way home, the shuttles left 8 guests behind who were still inside the venue, including the bride and groom. We ended up having to call ubers and ride home wi... Read more

    Thank you so much for the candid feedback on your wedding with Simply Fresh Events. While we are proud of the positive comments you made regarding the excellent food and staff during your wedding, we are disappointed that we failed to meet your expectations during several key parts one of the most important days of your lives. We are a family-owned company that honors the trust placed with us for the success of such an important day for our clients. That we did not live up to our own high expectations, let alone yours, is of great concern to us and we’ve met with our team on how to prevent issues like this in future. It’s important that we are proactive in addressing such issues, which we have done privately with you. We sincerely apologize for the errors we made, and hope that you can move forward with fond memories of the gorgeous day spent with loved ones and committing your lives to one another. Thank you again.
