Pepper's was a wonderful choice for our backyard wedding at my parents' home this spring. Planning an at-home wedding was tricky given the multiple moving parts and various vendors we needed, and Pepper's delivered on every detail we requested. We were drawn to them for their... Read More comprehensive services: they provided both catering services AND decor, which made the planning a little simpler. And they executed so well on our wedding day: from the food preparation to the style and design to the warm and attentive service, Pepper's made a very strong impression on us and on our guests. We knew the food would be delicious, having sampled it at tastings, but we were blown away by how artfully it was prepared, how speedily it was delivered, and how perfectly it was presented. SO many guests commented to us that the service was truly excellent -- there was never a line for the bar and never a wait for a bite of something tasty or a glass of something refreshing. Moreover, we never even saw or heard the trucks moving food from the garage to the catering tent and beyond. It was as if they had conjured food out of thin air -- and turned my parents' back yard into a 5-star restaurant. We are seriously impressed. The florals were truly everything we'd hoped for, in color and style and feel. The colors and varieties of flowers were simply perfect, and every detail was so well-crafted. Pepper's even crafted a custom display board for escort cards and favors we'd found, and the result was amazing. Pepper's poured so much work into making our wedding memorable, beautiful, delicious, and seamless. We join our guests in raving about the high-quality food, the warm and friendly servers, and the smooth and efficient operations that made our wedding day a dream.

I used Peppers for my wedding and it was the best decision I made (aside from saying yes to my fiance). I had a slight disadvantage because I was planning my wedding 3,000 miles away (wedding was in Worcester, and at the time I was living in Los Angeles). I worked closely with... Read More Liz O'Neil at Peppers and she made my life super easy. She is super knowledgeable about the menu and decor. She works with you on the budget and makes sure you are happy with every decision and every detail (and there were a lot of details!). And the food is outstanding! There is a variety to pick from and the chefs create the most memorable dishes. As a former event planner, I can say that having Liz and Peppers as my caterers was by far the best choice I made. The staff at the wedding was professional and on time. The food was delicious. I never worried which made my wedding day flawless. I cannot recommend them enough. And if you call them, ask for Liz. She is so professional and such a pleasure to work with. Thank you Peppers for making my wedding day beautiful, yummy and stress-free!

Pepper's also helped with some of the decorations for our ceremony and reception, and we've gotten numerous compliments about the food and decor in the days since the wedding. The Pepper's staff was also so friendly and cheerful during the wedding from the event manager to the servers to the bartenders. They really helped create a fun and warm environment for everyone, and they even thoughtfully saved a plate of dessert for me and my husband to take home once they realized we didn't have time to try the dessert during the reception. We highly recommend Pepper's catering to others. You won't regret it!

Pepper's turned a rainy wedding into something special

Reviewed on 10/22/2014 Becca S

I would give Pepper's more than five stars if I could. They are in the business of wish-fulfillment, and they deliver far beyond expectations. When we, the clients, had vague ideas of what we wanted but no clue how to bring them into being, Pepper's staff members came up with... Read More ingenious and beautiful solutions in every area — menu, cake, site decoration, and flowers. And their food is superb. For me the most stunning thing was Pepper’s’s ability to handle a last-minute change of ceremony venue because of rain: in just a couple of hours, they transformed a bare tent on a gloomy day into a glowing, intimate space for our ceremony. The profusion of flowers and candles warmed up the space and helped to generate a spirit of joy and jollity, turning a disparate assemblage of guests into a happy community. Many of us opined later that we were kind of glad it had rained because the same chemistry would not have happened outside, no matter how beautiful the surroundings. Jody was our behind-the-scenes orchestrator for all the details. She came aboard in mid-job after our first catering rep left the company, and she didn't skip a beat, immediately mastering our menu, schedules, and wedding philosophy, and offering many useful suggestions. To Caitlin — the floral designer — we owe the beautiful work that turned a rainy day from disaster into serendipity. Linda, the pastry chef, gave exquisite expression to our two wedding motifs — mountains and sunflowers — on an amazing wedding cake (which we had originally decided to forego — until we tasted her cakes!). Pepper’s is truly a model for any business, combining efficiency, competence, and know-how with art and heart. You know you’re working with special people when the site manager bursts into tears at the end of your wedding because she was so moved by it!

Quite disappointing

Reviewed on 9/28/2014

We would not recommend using Pepper’s - overall we had a difficult time working with them, and were unimpressed with the level of service given the high cost. The original Event Designer(ED),our main point of contact, was easy to work with and understood our needs.... Read More Unfortunately, after negotiating and signing a detailed contract (Service Agreement) 5 months earlier, the Event Designer quit 2 months before the wedding. There our troubles began. The new ED told us that our contract did not include enough staffing, even though our final guest headcount was less, not more, than what was in the contract. She insisted that we needed to pay for more staff. At this point, it was too late to go and select another caterer, so we were stuck. We protested but paid more because we were afraid they would sabotage the event. They did not seem to feel responsibility for following through on what they had promised, instead blaming the problem on the departed employee.The owner was unbelievably rude over the phone. Overall, we felt nickled and dimed. There were also many small mistakes (e.g., table layout, menu details) adding to the bride’s stress in that she had to constantly double-check and correct what Pepper’s sent us.It wasn’t our fault their employee left. Also, despite promises that Pepper’s knows how to work seamlessly with the other wedding vendors, we found this not to be the case under pressure. In the days before the wedding, the wedding day threatened rain, which naturally caused some confusion given that the ceremony and cocktail hour were to be outdoors. Pepper’s pushed us to commit to moving it indoors as early as possible, even though we wanted to keep our options open, explaining that we were willing to sacrifice certain things to have it outdoors. Instead of coordinating directly with the venue to come up with a plan, Pepper’s kept trying to make a unilateral decision to move it indoors, which caused confusion and made us feel that they really didn’t care about our satisfaction. In the end, largely thanks to the very proactive and professional venue staff, we were able to make a last minute decision to have things outdoors when the skies cleared. It was lovely, but if Pepper’s had had it their way we would have been inside on what turned out to be a great day. They did not live up to their sales pitch that they were flexible or creative. Finally, the quality of service at the event was not as we had expected. For example, the toasts were made with water, because wine inexplicably took so long to get poured. Dessert was served at one station instead of two as we had agreed. The DJ announced a cake cutting when there was no cake (we had a different dessert), which reflected a lack of communication between Pepper’s and the DJ. The fish was OK but the chicken was tough - not the quality that we had tried during our tasting. Pepper’s did set up the tables beautifully using our decorations and the staff was nice although the bartenders were inexperienced. It was not our fault that their employee quit. We think the upfront staff probably protected others from the owner. Overall we got the impression that he only cares about profits, and not customer satisfaction. When you’re paying so much, you expect a higher level of service. Our interaction with Pepper’s left a bad taste in our mouths, and we would not recommend using them for your wedding.
