After doing quite a bit of research of Phoenix catering company candidates to put on our wedding, my wife and I decided on Heidi's. And we are both ever so grateful for doing so.
We met with Heidi about 10 months before our wedding to map t...
hings out. Considering it was our first wedding to plan, we hadn't a clue what we were doing. Heidi was very accommodating and professional from the get go. She catered (pardon the pun, won't happen again) to our working schedules and met with us one evening that was convenient for both of us. From the minute we sat down with her and her staff, we knew we were in good hands. They were extremely organized, offered a variety of packages and options to best suit or wedding party and guests, and suggested more than enough alternatives. Throughout the months in between, Heidi made sure to keep in contact with both of us to make sure we were doing OK and let us know that we could call her and make suggestions or changes any time we needed. I don't think there was one time where we called Heidi herself, and she didn't answer her phone.
The night of the wedding went off without a hitch. The staff was on time and worked efficiently and effectively to make sure everything was set up for the guests. They were also friendly and accommodating and would go out of their way any time someone needed "a quick glass of water" or "to sit down for a bit." Truly great people.
The staff continued to impress following the ceremony. During the cocktail time between moving ceremony chairs out and the dinner tables in (which, by the way, was done swiftly and incognito), Heidi's staff paid their utmost attention the each guest, offering beverages, hours de vours, and making sure everyone was comfortable.
When it came time for dinner to begin, the staff shined once again. They were extremely organized and had an efficient plan of action as to how and when the food would be served. Each guest was able to eat and enjoy themselves in a timely manner while the staff continuously and inconspicuously removed plates and made the setting more comfortable.
The food was wonderful. We chose to have a buffet as we figured it would be the most practical and suitable for the location. We had a few vegetables, two types of meats, breads, and pasta. The food was fresh and always warm and appealing, from the beginning of the dinner to the end. The chefs at Heidi's use the best ingredients to make their food taste beyond delicious.
To wrap up, I was more than satisfied with the work of Heidi's Events & Catering. They were punctual, personable, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, and polite. They were wonderful to our guests and worked very hard to make sure everything ran smoothly. Giving them 5 stars wasn't enough.
