Tobey-Golub Wedding Reception

The food was excellent. Our guests raved about the omelets—in fact, many said they were the best they'd ever had. The belinis were delicious and the guests all raved about the passed appetizers.




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!




Widmayer Wedding Reception

I would definitely recommend Gilmore Catering to my family, friends, and colleagues. Your staff was very friendly and working with them was a pleasure. The food and service were also very good. I am very happy with the experience and will highly recommend you to others.




Doornbos Wedding Reception At Eve

My husband and I had our daughter’s wedding reception at Eve in The B.O.B. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue. Not only is it affordable, but they also offered a wonderful addition which most venues do not: Our event came with a dedicated manager by the name of Charlie Harmon. He was such a kind, compassionate professional and really the best at what he does. The food was amazing, and the best part of the evening was the ambiance. The way the room is designed to get people up and moving. We had the time of our lives!




Petersen-VanderBent Wedding Reception At The B.O.B.

I totally recommend The B.O.B.—it is the best kept secret in Grand Rapids for a downtown wedding reception venue. The Gilmore Catering menus were extremely reasonable and it was great to have so many options to add or subtract for main entrees, appetizers, and desserts. If you could put me on your rooftop I would willingly shout out “The B.O.B. is the best wedding reception venue with great value! "




Palmer-Opatik WR

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!




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.




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.
