Events at Independence Grove
Flawless wedding caterers are definitely hard to come by and the same goes for wedding venues. So finding both in one neat, little package is a match made in bridal heaven. Independence Grove has both stunning outdoor and indoor reception areas as well as romantic ceremony sites, but the caterer of Independence Grove — Catering by Michael — is the real star of the show (second to the bride, of course!), churning out delicious dishes that earn their rave reviews: "I have never received more compliments on how perfect our wedding was! Every guest there that night said that we had the BEST FOOD EVER! All the cooking is done in house, so food doesn't come out in heated carts like I've seen at other places. All meat was cooked to a perfect medium rare, presentation was perfect, and the tastes were simply incredible." Read real brides' reviews here!

Amway Grand Plaza Hotel
Yet another venue/caterering combo extraordinaire, the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel has an award-winning culinary staff that takes the (wedding) cake in everything from ethnic dishes (the ultra-experienced staff promises to work closely with you to ensure authenticity) to delectable dessert confections. "The meal was not only hands-down the best wedding dinner I've ever had, but one of the best meals of all time!" raves one happy bride. "The food was warm, perfectly seasoned, and super fresh. Our servers were very attentive and handled our every need. Don't even get me started on that cake! We had the red velvet cake with cream cheese filling AND a dark chocolate cake with peanut butter ganache filling. It was to DIE for and all of our guests were over the moon."

Twomaytoz Event Catering
Twomaytoz has been catering with the same staff and owners for 10 years, serving up both a family atmosphere and mouthwatering meals that put a unique spin on traditional, family recipes — whether it's a pork tenderloin gussied up with a cranberry orange, vanilla bean, and bourbon sauce or classic crab cakes decadently dressed with lemon aioli. Brides say that the company's tight-knit, personable feel extends to each and every wedding, for thoughtful and doting service-with-a-smile. Read real brides' reviews here!

My Chef Catering
Sure, fresh ingredients, delicious dishes, and tantalizing tastes are all part of the recipe in the making of a stellar wedding caterer, but what really makes My Chef a standout is that they have all that and more — most notably superstar service: "My husband and I started to became disappointed that we would never find the right caterer, because all we found initially were caters that had high prices, disorganized staff, or horrible tasting food. But then we found My Chef and our world changed for the better! From the first day we met the staff at our tasting, we knew that they would be our best option for our event. They took so much care and concern in helping us select the best choices for our special day. On the wedding day, the staff was amazing. They attended to every detail and need we had. I felt quite taken care of which is exactly how a bride wants to feel." Read real brides' reviews here!
