Catering always was an area of utmost importance for Ezzi & I, especially the freshness and quality of the food prepared. I was a bit concerned it wouldn't be up to our standards. The Essential Caterers prove me wrong; from our first appointment, we were pleasantly surprised by their attention to details and them carefully listening to our needs and requirements. They perfectly attended to every guest & special attention required. All our guests said the food was excellent, up to high standards. We can't thank Sally enough for making this day better and more beautiful than we ever thought it'd be.
