  • We hired Simply Gourmet for our daughter's wedding, and they were Simply Amazing! At the tasting we met Becky and decided we also needed her to be the wedding coordinator. Becky worked with us to create a very elegant event and delicious meal within our budget. She had great ideas and confidence that put our minds at ease. She helped us to have a plan A, B, and C for weather, and thank goodness because we ended up needing to use plan B. Jamie also helped coordinate the ceremony at the church, and her quick thinking saved the day when we forgot a boutonniere for the singer, she quickly fashioned one out of left over flowers! When we arrived at the venue, for pictures, we were greeted by Becky and staff with drinks and yummy appetizers. Our guests were inside having a great time and being well taken care of, they commented that the bar tenders remembered their drinks and had them ready as they approached. The dining service was impeccable. Becky had the venue looking gorgeous, a floor pl... Read more

  • Jamie and staff is truly great at what they do. They went above and beyond and dealt with all the planning for the day of. They were hardly seen unless it was necessary. Made the guests feel comfortable and welcome. The praise we received from guests and family was a resounding success. We are forever grateful for all the memories created because of the staff’s professionalism, skill, and attention to detail to really make our day special.

  • Simply Gourmet & Becky were absolutely incredible! We used them for a Friday night "welcome party" and our wedding and both events were incredible. The food tasted exactly like it did at the tasting and the cheese board/table they did for the Friday night cocktail party was beyond! I got so many compliments on the wedding food and everything was hot & as expected. We chose the day-of wedding planner service and it was worth every penny. Becky made everything seem so easy and calm and kept the night moving. To me, everything went off without a hitch (and if it didn't, Becky did an INCREDIBLE job of making me feel calm). Becky was great at communicating and her & her team did an excellent job of executing our vision. We had a lot of personal touches (handmade by my mother) and Becky & her team made sure they were placed & ready to go at the venue. She did an excellent job managing our other vendors as well. I cannot recommend Simply Gourmet & Becky enough!

  • The food and wedding coordination was amazing. Becky did such a fantastic job. Worked with our changing of the menu several times and always responsive. On our wedding day, Becky kept everything organized and even removed a huge foot print stain from my dress. I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you for making our day so effortless and smooth for us!

  • I seriously cannot recommend Simply Gourmet highly enough. They did an AMAZING job throughout the whole planning process and were fabulous on the day of the wedding as well. We primarily worked with Becki, and I cannot say enough good things about her. First, the food was AMAZING. We had chicken (so tender!), green beans (cooked to perfection), rolls (everyone LOVED), salad with amazing dressing, baked ziti (my fave!!), and brownies and amarettos (to die for!). Our hor d'oeuvres were amazing as well. Our venue had a rule that the caterer must handle all of the rentals (chairs/lights/heaters/linens), and Simply Gourmet did an excellent job ordering all of the rentals and making sure they were set up. On the day of, the staff was so friendly and kind and treated not only the wedding party, but also the guests like kings and queens. Not only does Simply Gourmet offer 5 star service, they also are so affordable and will work with you on pricing. CANNOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH. If you are f... Read more

  • I had the pleasure of working with Becky and she was great! She went above and beyond for me during my planning process. I planned my wedding from out of state and she was so easy to communicate with. During our tasting they whole staff treated us so well, and the food was amazing! We worked with Chef Will, he was great as well. On our wedding day Becky made sure a server focused on my husband and I to ensure we ate and didn't miss out on appetizers during pictures. When we sat down for dinner we even had a plate with every appetizer to make sure we tried everything. We had just under 200 guests, dinner was served very timely and everyone loved their food. I highly recommend Simply Gourmet Caterers, thank you Becky!

    Stacy - I was so thrilled to make your wedding experience a smooth and enjoyable one! Making sure the bride and groom are attended to is a top priority of mine, and I am glad that detail shined! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your special day! All my best - Becky

  • Amazing experience with Simply Gourmet. Becky also acted as our day of coordinator. Several of my bridal party commented that hiring her to make sure everything ran smoothly was the best money we spent! We chose a Mexican themed buffet and the food was so delicious! Simply Gourmet has servers at the buffet so you don't have to balance your drink, your plate, and attempt to serve yourself at the same time. Becky also made sure that the bridal party had appetizers and drinks while we were taking pictures....such a nice touch! We bought our own alcohol and hired Bill the bartender through Simply Gourmet. My guests were so impressed that he remembered their drinks each time they went back to the bar! And when we got back to our room for the night, we found leftovers in the refrigerator. Very thoughtful. Thanks to Becky and Simply Gourmet, we truly had the perfect wedding day.

    Jamie - I am so happy that I was able to be apart of your big day! We pride ourselves in making sure that all guests - including the two most important -bride and groom - are well taken care of throughout the whole evening. The setting couldn't have been more fabulous- and I wish you and Rhett all my best! ~Becky Souflis

  • I hired simply gourmet catering for my wedding catering after our first tasting, the food was absolutely delicious and it truly set them apart from the other caterers in the area. We also chose Jamie as our wedding coordinator. I am in graduate school and got married in the middle of it (YA IM CRAZY LOL), so without her help I don't know how I would have done it all! She was very organized and super prompt when answering emails. It is apparent she has a ton of experience under her belt! She was able to help us come up with Plan A, B, and even C if weather conditions were to change the day of the wedding --- and they did!! We were so happy with everything Jamie did-- from coordinating with all the vendors, making sure we were staying on timeline, and even saving us food that we missed out on eating because we were so busy getting pictures done!! Overall A+ rating!! Thanks again for everything Simply Gourmet! We highly recommend !

    I was delighted to be a part of your special day! Even though the weather was not 100% perfect. I am so happy that you trusted me to execute your vision for all plans. Matt and you wanted the ceremony outside and was so thankful that the weather held out for such an important moment. Chef Larry is delighted that you and your guests enjoyed your food. We wish you and Matt all best! Jamie Barrett

  • My wife and I recently got married and spent a lot of time trying to find the right caterer for this big event. We reached out to many caterers but ended up going with Simply Gourmet for many reasons. They were quick in their response back to us, their pricing was very reasonable, they put together a taste testing for us which made all the difference. Their food was amazing and the portions were perfect not to much food and not to little. They also make the most amazing amaretto cookies I have ever had. Since we did not have the money to hire a complete wedding planner we used Simply Gourmets Day of Wedding services. Jamie the owner did such a great job at organizing our wedding and making sure everything was on time. She followed up with our vendors as well to ensure they knew what times to be there and where to setup. It allowed my wife and I to just sit back relax and enjoy our day without worrying about the wedding. Their catering staff was top notch to, they were very punctual and... Read more

  • The food for our wedding was simply superb! The quality and the presentation looked straight out of a magazine. One of my favorite things about Simply Gourmet is that unlike many other vendors, Simply Gourmet cooks their food onsite. It makes such a difference! Also, Becky was such a doll to work with. We can't wait to use them for Thanksgiving this year! =)

    Tara - Becky thoroughly enjoyed working with you as well! We take pride in cooking onsite to get you the freshest most delicious meal for your special day. We look forward to hearing from you for future events! All our best to you and Michael!

  • Absolutely amazing catering! Everything from our tasting to the wedding night was perfect! Their attention to detail was incredible. They really listened to what we wanted and I felt like our menu was very personal. Becky was our coordinator and she ensured the entire wedding ran smoothly, she even helped my mum build my wedding cake. Very affordable. High quality, fresh food! We got so many compliments on the catering which I don't think many people can say of their wedding food! They even gave me and the groom a dinner plate with a little of each food option on it so we got to taste everything!! AMAZING!

  • I hired Becky and her staff at Simply Gourmet after paying a deposit then terminating the contract, with the in house caterer at my wedding venue, The Powel Crolsey Estate. I explained the situation with Becky, and she was able to not only match what the previous caterer was going to provide, but also added a discount as our wedding was on a weekday. The same chef that prepared the meal at the tasting, is the same chef that cooks on the wedding day, unlike the caterer I initially hired. The food at the tasting and on the wedding day was delicious. I received so many compliments about the food. While taking bridal party photos on the wedding staff, Becky designated a wait staff to serve us appetizers and water during breaks! Simply Gourmet's pricing is similar to other caterers in the area, but what sets them apart is their professionalism and quality of the food. They can customize a menu based on what you want as well.

    Becky and the staff were thrilled that you were able to have the wedding of your dreams! We were so happy that everyone enjoyed the food and we wish you all the best!
