Ben & Lindsay Wedding

Gilmore Catering has a reputation for being the best which is why we use them anytime we need a caterer. So when it was time to plan my wedding, it was a no-brainer that they would be handling our reception. The whole team is so easy to work with and they bent over backwards to make sure everything was amazing for our special day. Even when issues with the menu or venue policies arose, the necessary adjustments were quickly made without additional costs to us. The one thing you know for sure when hire them is the meal will be great! From the initial planning of the event to the servers at the reception, everyone associated with Gilmore Catering made it their personal mission to ensure that my wedding day was perfect. If you are having an event in Grand Rapids or West Michigan and don't hire them, you’re crazy!




Heltsmith Wedding Reception In Saugatuck

Everything about our wedding reception in Saugatuck was amazing. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we were with everything. Kim Lemmen was fantastic to work with and Charlie Harmon 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.

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.




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




Burciaga Wedding Reception At Baker Lofts

We loved our wedding reception at Baker Lofts. It was like a dream and better than I ever imagined. The service was phenomenal, the food amazing, and the venue beautiful. I know you gave us the deal of a life time and worked within budget. I still can't believe how everything worked out for us. It was the west wedding food I’ve ever had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!




VanderPlas-Hoekstra Wedding At Felt Mansion

We are extremely pleased with our choice of Gilmore Catering for our wedding day at Felt Mansion. Charlie Harmon, 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.




Mandy Trevino - Wedding Reception

Staff was amazing! Also had a problem with rental company on plates but Gilmore stepped up to save the day. Very impressed with the service and food.




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!
