Ivy, Karen, and the staff made my stressful wedding so much less stressful and a beautiful day to remember. Early on I told them I was allergic to dairy but not to worry about me, I would just eat the food that didn’t have dairy. They STILL m...
ade sure to make me a special plate of their DELICIOUS French toast bake without the cream cheese. About a month before my wedding my cake maker backed out on me and Ivy’s was there to give me multiple recommendations and even reached out to places for me. They were the only people that made sure I ate and drank and helped get everything into my car at the end of the wedding. The entire staff went above and beyond what they had to do as a catering company and I will never forget the support they provided me. Everyone at my wedding raved about the food as unforgettable and some of the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. I cannot say enough kind words about Ivy’s Catering and I recommend them to everyone having an event!

Ivy’s catered my wedding at Harkness State Park this summer- Sophia and Ivy were extremely helpful, attentive, and flexible with the menu and guest list as covid regulations were changing every few months. They helped us with every detail to cr...

We first started talking with caterers about seven months before our wedding. From the very first time we got on the phone with Sophia (the event coordinator at Ivy's), we were thrilled at how thoughtful and professional she was. Ivy's did so m...
uch to make our day run smoothly - they did all the table setup and breakdown, transported and set up our cake, and took care of a lot of day-of coordination, all included in the price of the package. So even though the catering was a little more expensive than we had originally been planning, it was well worth the money. All during the process, Ivy's worked with us to determine which things were most important to us (availability of meat? hot food? glass dishes?) and to cut costs on the parts that weren't. It was really important to us to be able to serve good food to all of our guests, including those with severe allergies and other food restrictions, and Ivy's was up for the task in a way that most other caterers we talked with were not. Everyone we talked with was friendly, professional, and down-to-earth. I was so thrilled to be able to share our day with such a good group of people, and to know that our money is supporting a great local woman-owned business. And, of course, the food was amazing! :D

My husband and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the exceptional service we received from Ivy’s catering! From start to finish, Ivy, Sophia, and staff, exceeded all our expectations! As many of you know, it can be very overwhelming planning a ...
wedding on your own. Upon initial consultation, we felt very comfortable with their approach, attention to detail, and overall business structure. They were attentive to our needs and went out of their way to help us overcome any hurdle that was placed in our path. Communication was fluent and precise. Additionally, check-ins were frequent and informative, providing us with all the resources needed to make decisions we felt confident in regarding our special day. We had a blast at our tasting experience which allowed us to narrow down our selection from an impressive menu! Throughout the process, they were patient and understanding. Since we already had an idea for what we wanted for our cake, finalizing that decision was easy as Ivy’s was able to accommodate our vision beautifully. As for the big day, Ivy’s staff coordination was professionally and seamlessly orchestrated. Who needs a wedding planner when you have Ivy’s?! Ivy even helped coordinate the line-up at the ceremony itself. Our guests are still talking about the amazing food and impressive staff from our wedding. We are truly grateful and can’t say enough about our wonderful experience! There is zero reason to look for another caterer as you will not find better! We absolutely recommend Ivy’s for any catering event and would hire them again in a heartbeat for future catered occasions!

n adjustment, Karen responded immediately. Her knowledge and expertise helped us plan a wonderful evening.
We met Ivy and she exuded genuine enthusiasm for our wedding. She prepared menu options and served them to us. During the tasting, Ivy listened to our feedback and tweaked some of the ingredients to better meet our tastes. Ivy also created additional options for us to sample and made arrangements to cater to gluten free guests as well.
The food was amazing. The servers were professional and friendly. Our guests raved about the passed horderves, harvest table filled with cheeses, raw bar, and delicious sliced beef tenderloin. And to top off the evening party, the desserts Ivy prepared were decadently delicious.
Ivy’s Simply Homemade treated us like family and helped make our wedding and party even more memorable. We give them our highest recommendation.

n our e-mail exchanges, and we were blown away by our first sit down meeting. Karen put so much effort into crafting a menu that was exactly what we wanted. Out tasting was a special event that we will always remember. Karen made every step of the process more enjoyable, and went above and beyond on numerous occasions (talking through the logistics of the day with us, coordinating with our other vendors, etc.) Joel and I are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Ivys-- it was truly a pleasure. And our guests were absolutely thrilled with the food and service- both of which were spectacular. Thank you Karen and Ivy!

Ivy took special care to make sure our menu was perfect. I could go on all day about how delicious the food was, but what stood out about this company was how genuine and caring Karen was towards my family. I feel like we really lucked out by hiring Ivy's. They made sure every detail was handled. I did not want for anything on our wedding day. My guests were fed amazing food and handled by amazing and caring staff. Thank you for making our wedding day amazing and worry-free!

Ivy's SH catered my wedding and they were amazing!!! They offered amazing options that were beautifully presented, tasty, modern, and fit within our modest wedding budget. We opted for the no-heat buffet to save money, and the food was so good ...
that no one even noticed it was not a hot buffet service! They also work with an excellent cake vendor and the cake blew me away, it was so good. Our guests also said the catering staff were very friendly. The catering coordinator, Sophia, is so great to work with. She is organized and seems to have a lot of experience. She helped us with a lot of non-food related tasks, like getting the DJ set with the timing and unpacking boxes at the venue. I highly recommend ISH for wedding catering. They are really out to impress and to make you as happy as they can.
