We first were in contact with Fireside when we were shopping for reception venues and went to Moraine Farms. Unfortunately, Moraine was a little far from our ceremony location, but we really liked the folks we met with. The catering manager, Maura, contacted us a few days later and it was love at first email. As we left from our first in-person meeting with Maura, I said to my then fiance, "I don't even care if the food isn't good, I want to work with her." And then, when our car got stuck in the shop and we had to rent a Home Depot truck to get to our tasting (a few hours late), she was so understanding and provided us with some AMAZING food. AH-MAZE-ING. We were looking forward to our wedding not only for the obvious reasons, but also so that we could eat that steak hors d'oeuvre and butternut arancini and roasted chicken again.
Not only was the food fantastic, but working with Maura was an absolute dream. Any question I had, she answered immediately, she took care of coordinating all our vendors, she even found, evaluated and rented us some port-o-johns to help alleviate some of the lines at the indoor bathrooms at our venue. It is rare that I meet someone who has higher standards and is more of a perfectionist than I, and Maura is that person. As a result, our reception went off without a hitch, everyone had an amazing time and there were very few plates left with food on them. The service was impeccable - everything was set up as I had requested, there was almost no lag time between tables being served dinner and the bar was never packed thanks to servers passing drinks as well as hors d'oeurves.
I am in LOVE with Fireside and will use them for any and every event we host in the future and would recommend them to EVERYONE who is in need of a caterer. They are a first class, friendly, and hard-working team of professionals.

It has been a month since my wedding, and I still have people telling me how amazing the food was. Just mouthwatering. Not only was it amazing food, but they were fantastic to work with, very flexible. My husband is a bit of a foodie so he had some specific ideas; they met is expectations and then some.

I can't say enough good things about Fireside Catering!
Fireside was SO very good to us- they worked with us to create a perfect menu that was pleasing to all but reflective of our flavor theme. They helped us cut costs too by focusing on seasonally available ingredients and making savvy choices. And they were so easy to work with! Their staff were all so gracious and efficient, both before and after the wedding.
This is the best, though- my guests are asking me for RECIPES for the food that was served at the wedding. Who asks for the recipes for wedding food?? So many of the dishes that were served were simply to die for! We are such a foodie couple so it brought us great joy to see the looks of delight on our guests faces as they devoured the meal we'd so carefully chosen for them.
I think too often when brides are planning their wedding, they think too much about the dress and the overall look of the space (both important, of course) and less about the GUEST experience. If you want your guests to be happy and think it was 'the best wedding ever' make sure you put at least as much thought and effort into your food as you did into coordinating your wedding party attire! If you want a vendor that can help you do just that and BLOW your guests' minds with their delicious flavors, look no further than Fireside!
