“If you are looking for a caterer, look no further! Snuffin’s catering offers amazing food, an amazing staff, and an overall amazing experience. We were thrilled with how easy they made the whole experience, from tastings to finalizing the menu and rental equipment. Day of the wedding Austin made sure all of the tables were set up correctly, that the buffet was displayed beautifully, and that her staff was doing everything in a timely manner. All of the appetizers came out warm and the buffet food was delicious! On top of that, Austin went above and beyond helping coordinate our wedding ceremony and the rest of the day. Without Snuffin’s our day wouldn’t have been as incredible as it was. Thank you all so much for your hard work and dedication that was put into our special day!”
