What our customers are saying.

Heltsmith Wedding Reception

Everything about our wedding reception in Saugatuck was amazing. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we were with everything. Kim was fantastic to work with and Charlie was absolutely incredible. I was truly impressed, as were all of our guests; you made it seem effortless. And the food! Every single person that attended the wedding told me the food was fantastic.

Taber Wedding Reception

The day of the wedding was a very warm one and the ceremony took place in Dimnent Chapel, which is not air conditioned. When 250+ guests arrived at the reception, your staff was butlering beer and wine to assist the large number of thirsty people in line at the bar. They also brought drinks to the wedding party who were assembled downstairs before their entrance at the reception. Your staff was professional and very pleasant to work with. The meal, drinks, and wedding cake were served in a timely fashion to a very large group. Your staff handled it beautifully. Also, the pre-planning, taste testing, and final run through were well done. Any questions we had during the process were answered promptly.

Joan Snyder, Rehearsal Dinner

Great, thank you so much! We loved everything! You & your crew did a fantastic job! Bartender was top notch, food was delicious.

VanWieren-Jones Wedding Reception

We received SO many compliments on the food, and I personally scarfed down my entire plate, it was so delicious! In addition, I really appreciate your attention to detail and all of our thorough planning meetings and many (many) e-mails. We really enjoyed working with both Kim and Luke. Kim, you had so many helpful planning tips and I very much appreciate you being direct and helping us stick to our budget. Luke, you were so professional yet still fun at the wedding. You handled the keg situation with tact. I was so shocked we ran out of the first keg during the cocktail hour! Our friends were having so much fun :) And I'm glad that Andy was able to pay the bill for the extra keg. It was great that you had us identify someone beforehand at our meeting on Thursday before the wedding because it made that decision a lot smoother the day of. The bartenders and staff were so helpful and gracious. It was so nice that someone was able to carry my plate for me through the buffet and to my table. We also appreciated the cake cutting and placing on the buffet table! Overall, our day was better than we even imagined and Gilmore Catering was a huge reason for that. Thank you so much! Emily and Zach

Katie Cole Wedding Reception

We just had our wedding at The L3vel at the B.O.B. and Charlie was our manager that night for Gilmore Catering, and I can honestly say I have no constructive feedback for him or his team. They did a perfect job. The bartending was stellar, the food was amazing, and Charlie did an amazing job keeping everything on time that night. Couldn't have asked for better food, and I got several compliments on the food, and a few of the guests said "it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding, EVER!" Great job Gilmore and The B.O.B. for making our day so very special!

Bruce Kelly Wedding Reception

It was a fantastic night. Your staff did a great job. Everyone loved the venue and lots of compliments on the food. Every dish was great.

Allison Santori, Wedding Reception

The B.O.B. has always been my top choice to celebrate my wedding & after all is said and done, I am still very happy with our choice. The coordinators made everything for our big day effortless. They were constantly in contact with myself and others involved making sure everything was set and perfect. During our reception I saw them monitoring and making sure everything was going smoothly & we had no issues at all. The B.O.B. is such a fun environment to have a reception & every single guest who attended had a blast.

Palmer-Opatik Wedding Reception

The staff was PHENOMINAL!! Very well organized and excellent service! Our guests and we were very pleased with not only the service but also the food!

Kathy Terpstra Wedding Reception

We told Natalie to let you know too how unbelievably amazing everything was last night. The food was beyond delicious. Absolutely everything was top notch! All the guests we spoke with raved about the food and said it was the best reception that had ever been to, and that is high praise coming from some pretty elite folks, lol! I'm sure you will see more events generated from your stellar performance last night! The staff, especially Rebecca and Shannon and of course Charlie we're a joy to work with and had every detail covered. Thank you again for everything, it was truly an amazing experience!

Alex Holmes, Wedding Reception

The whole thing turned out great! We really enjoyed the food and Charlie was fantastic to work with. It couldn’t have gone better. Than you again for everything!!

VanderPlas-Hoekstra Wedding

We are extremely pleased with our choice of Gilmore Catering for our wedding day at Felt Mansion. Charlie, our event manager, is a master at what he does and the serving staff was friendly and knowledgeable. So many special touches like a server carrying my plate back to the table for me, one of the servers pulling out my grandmother’s chair for her, the team cleaning the chargers when that was not in their job description, and so much more. We received many compliments on the food and the service. I was also impressed with the pre-planning; Angela Shea worked so well with me as an adviser, kept me on a timeline, advised great food options and portions, and contributed greatly to the success of the day. I could not have imagined going with any other catering company for our wedding day.

Gaynell Pearson, Rehearsal Dinner

Wanted to thank you for all your help with our rehearsal dinner. The setup was great and the food was good. The service was very good. I would definitely recommend your servers and accommodations to others. I think everyone enjoyed themselves and had a good time. Again, thank you for all your help in making happen.

Leslie Kleinschmidt Wedding Reception

I wanted to send a thank you and kuddos to the team at Gilmore Catering. From the beginning, we appreciated your and Barb’s prompt responses, professionalism and industry expertise. You ALL were so great to work with and the food was outstanding. In fact, several guests are still commenting how delicious the food was. They also loved Jen behind the bar. The team led by Charlie couldn’t have been more hospitable. Ryan and I have been in the service industry a very long time - we’ve never seen staff so attentive. I needed to leave my dinner for a brief moment and came back to it covered to keep it warm. The service staff was checking in with us to see if they could take empty glassware from us or if there was anything they could get us. These are just a few small things that made a huge impact on our day. Please share with the staff a huge thank you from us and to please keep up the great work! We will definitely recommend Gilmore Catering in the future.

Tiesenga-Rozema Wedding Reception

I recommend Gilmore Catering to all my friends and family in a heartbeat! The entire staff made our wedding day so special and we had absolutely nothing to worry about. They were a joy to work with.

Jill B. Rehearsal Dinner

We had our rehearsal dinner here at Paddock Place and it was fantastic!!! It was so beautiful and our guests loved it! We decided to do a bbq/ comfort food theme buffet. The food was actually really delicious. We had a large selection of food and the pricing came to around $30/ person which was pretty reasonable. The servers were also very attentive and kind. Highly recommend.

Karis Crawford Wedding Reception

As we were working with Gilmore from Europe and Africa, we were pleased to find that they were extremely professional and well-organized, despite our time and distance differences in the lead-up to the event. We felt well taken care of for our wedding and the food was amazing!

Casorena Wedding Reception
