Our guest loved the food!!! Their favorites were the collard greens, the brisket, BBQ pork balls, and the blackberry lemonade. Being the bride & groom you don't really have time to enjoy your food on the day of your wedding, so make sure you request a to-go plate in advance.

Samone and her staff was amazing! All the food turned out delicious and our guests are still raving about it! I do got to say that working with Samone was like working with a long time friend. She puts her soul into her work and it shows, she truly cares about you. We even threw... Read More a small curveball at her a couple of weeks before the wedding and she nailed out of the ballpark!

When I started my search for caterers I heard and read nothing but great things about Wishful Concepts from how nice they are to how great their food is. However, I have been in contact with the owner (Samone) since February 7th, we were messaging back and forth because I was... Read More really excited about them and wanted to set up a consultation, the last message I sent was on February 12th and I did not hear anything back until March 3rd but it was brought to my attention that they had been dealing with a family emergency so I let the lack of response for two weeks slide because I was being understanding. After that we started back messaging and Samone let me know that they had some consultation spots open for March 8th, I messaged her back, again very excited, on March 5th saying that date would be perfect and told her the time my fiancé and I could come and I haven't heard anything back since. They have such good reviews when it comes to communication/responsiveness however I am tremendously disappointed in the blatant lack of response I received from Samone. I understand that she's the owner and is probably a very busy woman but if that's the case someone else should oversee the potential clients and ensure that they are answered to in a reasonable amount of time. I hate to write negative reviews but I want all the soon to be brides and grooms to know that if they are expecting timely responses/great communication, this isn't the place to go. Don't waste your time.

I met Samone of Wishful Concepts at a wedding show in July 2016. After asking me what my budget was I explained that I no longer had one because my fiancé was battling stage 4 cancer and fell very ill with in the past year and that I had been diagnosed with lupus which kept me... Read More from working for half of 2016. I shared with her that the beautiful wedding I had planned had become a pot luck and I just came to the bridal show to eat cake sample. Being moved by God she took my information and gifted her culinary services to us. What a blessing! A few days later she contacted me to tell me she had shared our story with a few other vendors who would be gifting their services as well. My fiancé and I were completely blown away with their organization, perfessionalism, attention to detail and general care for not only us, but all of their clients. If you are looking for exquisite cuisine, perfessionalism and awesome customer service look no further than Wishful Concepts Catering!

It’s hard to know where to start. We LOVED working with Samone and her team. It’s easy to tell that she genuinely loves what she does.

We felt that the quality of the food was amazing and that the pricing was fair but moderate compared to others. We had a beautiful wedding day and a wonderful time. We did have one thing missing that changed the look of the reception and ceremony, our chair covers that was... Read More included in our rate. We feel that this company is wonderful to work with but more organization and better communication would be my biggest point of feedback. They have so much potential and a wonderful chef running things. I am sure if we had more prompt delivery of our contract and everything that was ordered was provided, then I would be giving five stars. Our guests also had to wait to long for service to begin and some of the servers were not very responsive to them, this was our wedding guests feedback. We as the Grooms felt well taken care of by our server and I know this company will be doing wonderful things as they continue to grow. It is worth working with them as I am sure our experience was isolated. Thank you for helping us make a great day possible! Love, The Grooms

I made an appointment to meet with this catering company, only to be stood up and called two and a half hours later to be told why and asked if I wanted to reschedule. I agreed to reschedule only to be emailed in an unprofessional manner advising that my choice of tasting items... Read More was what "every bride was doing" and very traditional. I was told to call to discuss my likes and dislikes, but when I called the caterer just argued with me about the choice of my tasting item.
