Naturally, Simply Delicious loves weddings – after all, who doesn’t?
But, our affinity for nuptials goes beyond love: We truly get weddings. We understand all of the emotion
that’s part of the Big Day, as well as all of the hours of planning, budgeting, dreaming and Pinterest-ing that
you’ve put in. When you entrust Simply Delicious with your wedding catering, you get a team of creative,
detail-oriented and seasoned professionals dedicated to making your dreams a reality.
Inventive Menus
We’ll draw inspiration from your style, taste and ideas to create a culinary experience that your guests
will remember for years to come. Whether your taste is classic, eclectic, ethnic, decadent or anything in
between, our Executive Chef will conjure a selection of dishes that is nothing short of inspired. The taste
will speak for itself, but we’ll shout from the rooftops over the fact that virtually all of our offerings are
organic, locally-sourced, and made in-house.
Exquisite Presentation
We believe delicious food is only the beginning -- we’re all about the details!
Creating a beautifully appointed meal is our forté, from artfully-arranged plated meals to elegantlyaccessorized buffets. We collaborate with your florist and other vendors to design tablescapes that
perfectly match your color story and theme, whether it’s sourcing custom-made linens or finding just the
right candles to accent your place setting. Best of all, we set the trends rather than follow them, ensuring
that your wedding is anything but cookie-cutter. Among our most unique flourishes are:
• Custom Food Signage • Ladder-Style Food Displays • Custom Water Bottles and Accessories
Impeccable Service
Our wait staff sets the standard for service, and we regularly receive accolades for their unerring
service and friendly, caring demeanor. Each of our service professionals has extensive fine-dining
experience and a keen eye for anticipating your guests’ needs to ensure a seamless event from start to finish.

SIMPLY DELICIOUS SERVICE STYLES
Creating your reception menu is just the beginning.
Bridal couples have more choices than ever before when it comes to the type of dining experience to offer
their guests, from ultra-formal seated meals to lively, interactive food stations and casual cocktail parties.
Let Simply Delicious help you decide which style of service suits you best!
Cocktail Receptions
are a popular celebration option for informal yet intimate weddings,
and feature beautiful assortments of tray-passed hors d’oeuvres and bite-sized desserts as perfect
accompaniments to your wedding cake and the cocktail selections.
Traditional Buffets
can vary in scope and size and consist of a presentation of the hot main dishes, vegetables and side dishes,
along with at least one type of salad and other cold offerings such as fresh fruit and cheese assortments.
Performance Stations
also called chef-attended performance
food stations, are one of today’s top food trends, especially featuring international flavor. What
could be better than great food with built-in entertainment? Your wedding guests will be
excited to choose their favorite cuisine and watch it prepared from the freshest ingredients.
Chef Carts
are an innovative, crowd-pleasing trend that can accommodate a variety of tastes, styles and cuisines. These
rolling carts enthrall guests with choices from guacamole carts and sushi to street food favorites and Simply
Delicious specialties like gourmet seasoned french fries.
Family Style Service
is a casually festive yet still elegant option to the traditional
buffet and makes for a conversation-friendly, intimate ambiance for your reception. Guests serve themselves
from platters and dishes of your menu selections, which our servers have placed at each table.
Small Plate Concepts
follow the trend of the small plate, or tapas, menus. Most of our full-portion dishes can be
scaled down to small plate service. Small plate dishes and taster shooters allow guests to
partake in a sampling of menu items rather than one type of cuisine. Small plate meals may
be served by chef carts, at food stations, or as seated courses.
Seated Meal with Entrée Choice
is the traditional,
sit-down meal service, which requires each guest to pre-select their entrée from choices you
provide, typically including at least one meat selection and a fish or vegetarian
selection. This type of meal service requires table and seating assignments for your guests.
Seated Meal with Entrée Duet
follows the service formality above, but omits the need for meal pre-selection, as
each guest is served a duo of slightly-smaller main dishes on one plate.
