Heidi and Her Staff = EXCELLENCE!

I planned a destination wedding in Sedona, AZ site unseen and was given Heidi's name from another bride who had used her services.

To be honest, she treated me as if I were her own daughter on the day of, taking care of my every need. One of the most talked about aspects was that the food was cooked on site, making for a fresh and absolutely fabulous meal. I cannot thank Heidi enough for organizing such a fantastic day for my husband and I.

We liked Heidi's for the wide variety of cuisines they offered. The tasting was amazing, we stuffed ourselves with the different selections that Heidi's offered. We got to work with Jillian and she was very responsive. We had gone to the tasting 6 months before the wedding.... Read More By the time wedding rolled around, we made the menu selections. We had chosen off their fall/winter menu since we had done our tasting so early. Jillian luckily worked with us and was able to get most of our selections in and made recommendations for what wasn't available for the spring. The food was all fantastic. We had chicken piccata, carved tri-tip station, potatoes au gratin, roasted vegetables, and salad. It was buffet style. The serving staff was super attentive and the banquet manager checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we got enough food. Everyone loved the food.

Heidi and her team were so fantastic! We were late to the game picking a caterer, about 2 months before the event, but Heidi assured us everything would be just fine. She was so right, the food was really good and a lot of our guests commented so. My favorite was the guacamole... Read More bar and the pork shoulder entree. Both items were brought to us by a dedicated staff member who would even bring us drinks and apps while we were taking pictures. I wish I remembered his name because he was great!

Heidi’s was a great choice for wedding caterering and I would definitely think of her for future events.

Overall, we are so very pleased with the service, quality of food, and set-up/presentation of our wedding. Special thanks to Heidi for stopping by to say hello that evening. It meant the world to us! When I arrived that afternoon, Dana was the first individual out of our many... Read More vendors whom I encountered, and she and I chatted briefly after she immediately offered me a water, as I'm sure I looked like a crazy, hot, dehydrated and frantic bride. After photos, the ceremony, and even more photos, Laura was right by mine and the groom's side and ready to grab us drinks. In a flash, she was back with a glass of wine and a beer for us. Throughout the rest of the evening, Laura was popping up to offer us hors d'oeuvres, drinks/water and anything else our little hearts may have desired. Additionally, we were well aware of Dana's buzzing around, constantly keeping eyes on the many happenings and all of our guests - it was extremely evident how she stayed on top of literally everything that evening. The food was fabulous and we overheard many compliments from our guests about the tasty bacon-wrapped brats and chicken flatbread. We weren't expecting to be able to grab any ourselves (thanks to Laura, we did--and they were soooo tasty!) but we were so reassured and pleased with the great feedback from our friends and family. Dinner was lovely--the veggies were warm and flavorful without getting soggy, the beef bourignon and chicken both tender without being fatty or dried out, respectively. We can only imagine how challenging it is to cook enough food to feed 100+ people while maintaining quality, and you all pulled it off flawlessly. If we had one gripe, it would have been that it took quite a while to get everyone their dinner. Keep in mind, we are well aware that the line can only move as quickly as the slowest person :). Me being the neurotic individual that I am, I noticed that our last guest table (which would have been table 11) took about 45 minutes to get their food. We were both more comfortable remembering that our loved ones got some quick bites during cocktail hour, and our nerves were calmed. But we did want to provide at least one piece of constructive feedback amidst our otherwise unending thanks and lovely impression of your staff and your food that evening.

Heidi’s food was great! The staff was friendly. Heidi was instrumental in the planning process. We were disappointed with the overall service.

Our recent wedding was catered by Heidi's. We loved working with Jillian, who truly helped our vision to come true in organizing appetizers and food stations instead of a traditional seated dinner. We had to commit to our date/deposit before the tasting, which struck me as... Read More odd, but thankfully we were pleased enough with the tasting. Since we had food stations, we weren't able to taste the options we had selected at the tasting, but sampled enough of the plated dinners and appetizers to decide what we thought would work out well. Jillian was very responsive and easy to work with throughout this process; our numbers kept changing and some of our requests fluctuated (adding linens, coffee, etc.) and she continued to send us updated quotes. On the day-of, not everything went as planned. Unfortunately Jillian wasn't at the event, though the staff present were very nice and attentive. Since I wasn't in a white gown, it took about an hour before the catering staff figured out who my husband and I were, so we didn't start off with the personalized butler service promised (though they definitely tried to make up for it throughout the event and boxed up some of the meats for us to take home, since we barely ate!). We were told that the catering staff would take care of our decorations beginning at 3pm, but when my family and I arrived at 4:15 (for a 5:00 start!), ALL of our items were still in boxes in storage. My family and I rushed around to place centerpieces and other decorations around the venue. Some of the food stations weren't in the correct locations, which was disappointing and definitely negatively affected the traffic/flow that we had planned. The peach gazpacho that I was super excited for (and had loved at the tasting) instead tasted like bottled caesar dressing, and a couple other items were not as expected. Positives were that our guests LOVED the short ribs at the Korean BBQ station, and definitely appreciated having a wide variety of culinary options and strawberry shortcake for dessert. If we were to do it again, I'd definitely consider using them but would want to be sure that our plans were followed a little more carefully. As the person who planned the wedding, I am likely the only person who knows that the reality didn't match what was planned; our guests had a great time and are still talking about the short rib, so all in all a success.

We recently had our wedding at a venue in Sedona, AZ that required some travel time for the caterer and unfortunately, it didn't go as expected.

A majority of the staff present appeared as if they simply didn't want to be there and this was more than evident in their attitude towards the guests and the handling of contractual obligations. Aside from the long wait lines at the serving stations and bar, it took our wedding planner's intervention to ensure champagne was poured and tables were bussed, both obligations of the caterer. With this vendor being the most expensive aspect of the wedding, we were thoroughly disappointed with their performance and would discourage others from considering them on their special day. After the event and numerous conversations with the owner, we were provided a portion of the fees in return for the lack of service. This was a a helpful gesture but if provided the choice, we would have preferred that they simply fulfilled on the promises thus avoiding the situation altogether.
