Quantcast

My Fiancée's parents and I met with Gillian and Christina this past Saturday. We had trouble locating a reliable and professional caterer to assist us in our quest to offer fusion cuisine at our upcoming wedding. Gillian and Christina were a breathe of fresh air. They were both very professional, kind and understanding to our needs. Gillian was very culturally inclined and made me feel comfortable with her understanding of Puerto Rican and Pakistani cuisine. Christina is very sweet and attentive. She was assisted Gillian with notating all our needs. They both gave their undivided attention for over two hours as we discussed our menu with them. During this time they offered us some pineapple/guava juice, bread pudding rum sauce, Caribbean styled rice and meat patties. Everything was absolutely delicious!! We are waiting on a price quote and official food tasting with them in the coming weeks. I will update my review as we progress along. So far my Fiancée's parents and I are very pleased with their service!

We booked Caribbean Caterers for our wedding, and I am SO glad we did. They were incredibly helpful leading up to the day with keeping everything on track and communicating with us very promptly and transparently. The day of, we got so many compliments from our guests on the food, service, and decorations! Every step of the way, they were incredibly professional, friendly, and responsive. Would most definitely recommend!

Have you ever been to Disney? If so, you know the feeling of smiling all day. You know that all the cares in the world have disappeared for a few hours. 16 September 2017, Caribbean Caterers was our Disney. The Team, Christina Burkeholder, Candace Spencer, and Gillian de Souza, were everything in the catering world that Disney is for children and adults.
I first came across Caribbean Caterers when I attended one of those wedding events with my cousin's friend; she was preparing for her wedding and Caribbean Caterers were one of the venders at the event. I tried the jerk chicken, Keisha had the bread pudding, and I had another sample of the jerk chicken with the bread pudding. Once the date was set for our wedding I contacted them...I did not contact any other company because I was set on having CARIBBEAN CATERERS! Christina was my original point of contact and was welcoming, accommodating, and had an ear to listen when I changed from the first venue and was having a meltdown.Ms. Gillian, was with us the entire time she made me feel as if I was the only wedding that was taking place. She has a warm heart, patient, has a listening ear, and remained professional at all times. When suggestions were needed she was always full of ideas. I was a DIY bride and didn't really have a budget for food but knew I didn't want to spend every single dollar that was in my savings account, and she didn't take advantage of me not knowing the exact amount of money we wanted to spend. Ms. Gillian is also had to deal with the groom whom is very cautious of what money is being spent and where.Candace! Candace! Candace! I'm sure there are other people within the company that can do exactly what Candace did for our wedding to yours but there is only Candace. Candace hit the ground running. She is friendly, was knowledgeable about my event, and on the day of she nailed everything that she was supposed to! Every hiccup thrown her way she managed. Full review on yelp

I wish I had enough words to talk about how amazing my experience was working with Ms. Gillian and Caribbean Caterers. From the very first time I met them, I was completely sold and choosing this business was the best thing my husband and I did for our wedding! When we met Ms. Gillian she was doing a wedding close to where we lived and invited us to check out the decor. We were inmediately impressed and booked before even tasting the food! My husband and I have since talked about how crazy we were for doing that, but when you know, you just know. During the tasting, we were so impressed with the food that we changed our initial menu to make sure it matched our experience. EVERYONE raved about the food! EVERYONE loved the linens and decor! Working with Ms. Gillian was like working with an aunt. She was loving, honest, clear and organized - but always made us laugh! I honestly can't say enough about Caribbean Caterers. I'm sad my year with them has ended and hoping they offfer cooking classes so I can learn to make those delicious dishes soon! Folks will be talking about the food at your wedding for years- it's just that great!
