“Annie Butcher was in charge of my daughter’s wedding at Thornewood Castle on July 14. I felt it was important to let you know how pleased my husband and I were with her and her work. Our event was a seamless and lovely success, largely due to her sense of organization and professionalism. This was my last daughter to be married, but look forward to working with Annie sometime in the future.”

“Someone long ago coined the phrase, “you only get one chance to make a first impression” and the Snuffin’s crew not only delivered an outstanding first impression, you created wonderful life long memories for us. From the very first meeting Melissa and Eric felt a connection and a commitment to deliver from you, that was not evident with others they interviewed. Your assistance in guiding our thoughts and ideas put an outstanding touch of detail to Melissa and Eric’s vision of their wedding. You and the Snuffin’s crew were efficient and courteous from the very moment you arrived, until we cleaned up and departed. We could not have made a better choice. From the quality of the food – to the presentation – to the service from yourself, the wait staff and bartender, Snuffin’s exceeded our expectations.”

“The wedding was just wonderful. Everything we could have hoped for. Snuffin’s was wonderful! The tent, the food stations, the delicious food, the wonderful glasses of lemonade to start out with and, of course, your professional, smiling staff. We were all so happy with the beautiful tent and the way the tables looked. For me it was wonderful that I never considered worrying about any of the details because I was so confident in your management of the details. And in the end we were blessed with sunshine!

Please relay my sincere gratitude to all of your staff.”

“What you personally do at Snuffin’s Catering is an art from start to finish. You listened carefully to our daughter, and you made the recommendations for the elegant, country, family style wedding dinner that unfolded so elegantly on June 12, 2005. Snuffin’s set up at Lakewold was visually stunning and was managed by your staff with quiet dispatch. And what delicious food! – perfectly prepared, beautifully presented and again, served and cleared by your sensitive, professional staff. The dining flowed at a pace that seemed to be set by the guests with all their toasts and speeches, not by the kitchen. You wrote, “The meal is the experience of community” and you made it happen. When we thank you for being businesslike, we mean that we’ re grateful for your efficiency and expertise in handling numerous details. But, the heartfelt thank you from both of us, from Margaret and Gary and from our entire, satisfied party, is for the superior aesthetic you brought to our daughter’s wedding. We had great expectations, and you exceeded them. Yours appreciatively, from two big fans.”

“Thank you so very much for catering my wedding! The food was delicious and so wonderful! My husband and I and our guests really enjoyed the buffet you prepared! The display was elegant and perfect! The staff you chose to serve the event were very nice and very helpful!

They recommended to my Mother-in –law to snap pictures of the buffet pre-guests, which was wonderful so we could see what it looked like before the dinner began. The basket they put together for my husband and I was perfect! Your staff took time to add all of the keepsakes I would want along with the wonderful food.

Thank you so much for all that you and your staff did to make my wedding perfect and everything I could have hoped for!”

“Snuffin’s catered my daughter Kelly’s wedding reception at the Pagoda. This was my first time to host a catered event, but it will not be my last!

Annie was our coordinator. She was marvelous! She listened to and understood my daughter’s wishes and desires or her wedding reception. Annie gave helpful suggestions for everything and always responded promptly to Kelly’s emails. I strongly feel that the reception would not have been as successful as it was without her expertise and helpful guidance.

The quality and presentation of the food was outstanding! The compliments were flowing all afternoon- everyone enjoyed the buffet immensely. Kelly and Edwin loved their basket too-they were hungry by the end of the evening

I don’t know if I can even begin to covey to you have wonderful your staff was! Kathy and her crew were efficient, well-organized and completely professional. They made everything go so smoothly, from set-up to clean-up, and they did it all in a relaxed, happy manner. All of them are awesome representatives of your company!

Many thanks to you, your company, and your superior staff for being such a large part of Kelly’s perfect wedding!”

“In the past few months, I have had the pleasure of working with Snuffin’s Catering on three different events. Every event was as individual as our clients were. At each and every wedding, all throughout the reception I would receive or hear comments from the guests that this was by far the best ‘wedding food’ they had ever tasted. How it was not the ‘normal stuff’ you see at receptions. I personally have to agree. Your food is ALWAYS delicious, as well as beautifully and uniquely displayed. Your staff are some of the most competent, fun and reliable caterers I have had the pleasure of working with. Everyone is smiling and looking like they are enjoying what they do.

Your professionalism in listening to what the clients are saying, and producing exactly what their needs are is exemplary and your budgets are completely competitive and reasonable. I would recommend Snuffin’s to any of my future clients and look forward to many more events with you and your staff in the future.”

“I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the staff, food, and decorations at our event last night. The staff was awesome! Not only were they professional, they were helpful with advice and suggestions in order to make the night run smoothly. The lead server, Monica, was fantastic! The food was first-rate. I am so glad that I chose Snuffin’s to cater our event! I will definitely recommend your services to anyone I know looking for good food and quality staff.

You guys are the best!”
