Wow! We were blown away! Can we start by talking about the food? First it was, as we had expected, incredibly delicious. We had so many compliments about the menu and how wonderful it was. Great variety and full of flavor. Secondly, it was plentiful, which sends a wonderful message of generosity that we appreciated. Finally, it was beautifully presented and described..my mouth was watering at both the sight and descriptions. It really was important to us to have a great meal and you surpassed our hopes. (personal favorites...bacon wrapped scallops, quinoa salad, beef and all three desserts! And really, that is only because I forced myself to choose!) Thank you also for accommodating our special diets. Luke said it was the best vegetarian option he has had at any wedding!
We were impressed too with the service of your staff. It all went so smoothly and efficiently. It was so easy to work with you guys in the preparation and selection stages, which we were especially happy about given most of the planning was done at a distance.
Thank you again for all you did for us! We look forward to opportunities to sing your praises far and wide. Just wish we had more weddings of our own to plan....sort of!
Gratefully, Fawna and Stephen
Hi Russell and Betty,
We are now back in Vancouver and back to work and I wanted to send you a note of thanks for everything. You have been wonderful to work with and made planning a wedding from the other side of the country a smooth and easy process. I very much appreciate all of your emails and responses throughout the planning process.
I also wanted to let you know that our guests have not stopped talking about the food since the wedding. I have heard from many guests that it is the best food they have ever had at a wedding. EVER. Everyone also loved your explanation of the items on the buffet and commented on how much they enjoyed hearing you speak about the food almost as much as they enjoyed eating it. The food you served and the pride you had in it really elevated the wedding to a higher level and was so delicious. It really was perfect and added to our perfect day.
Thanks again for everything.
EMD & RLD,
We cannot thank you enough for everything! The food was amazing and we are so grateful.
Russell and Betty,
It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Russell and Betty as caterers for any event, but especially for a day as important as a wedding. We were recommended by friends, who also had Betty and Russell cater their wedding, and we are so happy to have been referred to them. The meal, according to many guests and in my opinion, was among the best I've ever had the pleasure to consume. The hors d’oeuvres that were served prior to the ceremony were both delicious and beautifully presented. Bar none, this was definitely the best wedding (and restaurant) meal I've ever had. Words definitely cannot do it justice! (Russell, this is my plea to you to consider opening a restaurant!!)
Beyond the fantastic quality of the food, Betty and Russell were happy too – and very patient with me! - work through all the various imaginings of my wedding, and provided various menus to accompany each idea (we went from standing hor d'oeuvres to a casual sit-down buffet style meal). They also worked around the groom, with his salmon allergy, to provide him with a rainbow trout version. It was important for me to offer a vegetarian option, and that was just as incredible as the salmon dish. Guests raved about each offering.
We held our wedding at my parents home, and both my parents and any guests who arrived early to help out later remarked how wonderful the caterers were to interact with as Russell prepared food in the kitchen.
There are many details to keep track of and worry about, but should you engage with Russell and Betty, the food is one item that will cease to stress you, and give you much to look forward to enjoying.
Dear Russell and Betty,
Our salivary glands still do their jobs when we think of the delicious feast that you prepared for us. Every last little morsel and crumb savored until they disappeared into our tummies. Your whole team was so pleasant& polite~ and they kept bringing us yummy things to eat, bearing smiles the whole while.You both operate a top notch operation....
Good Morning Betty & Russell!
I want to thank both of you and your staff for the wonderful food and service you provided for our daughter's wedding reception last Saturday. We had numerous compliments about the quality and selection of food and my celiac guests were especially appreciative of their choices.
Once again, thank you for your contributions to what was a wonderful day.
I have been meaning to get in touch with you for weeks to thank you for the incredible dining experience you gave to our guests. The food and service was incredible, people are still raving about it. You and Betty were so wonderful to deal with and can't thank you enough for helping make our day everything we hoped it would be. Hope you are having a great summer!

To Betty and Russell,
What can I say!! Our great, good fortune was having you cater my daughter's wedding last weekend.
I am still getting rave reviews from guests on the exceptional food and it's wonderful presentation.Everyone was salivating from the moment you started introducing the menu and continued throughout the dining experience.
It was great working with you both and I appreciate you being available to me when I had questions or concerns regarding the reception. Thank you very much for everything.
Russ and Betty,
Thank you so much for the beautiful feast you prepared in celebration of my dad's life.
When I came down from the church and saw the table it was such a visceral experience for me....everyone was so pleased and grateful. What you do is such a gift and always beyond expectation. Mom was so happy with everything.
Those who know you both, of course, weren't surprised, and those who didn't were delighted, lots of,"who's the caterer"!!
Dear Russell and Betty,
We'd heard good things about your work, but the spread you prepared for our wedding totally blew us away. It was delicious, cooked beautifully on the table and the service was smooth, smooth, smooth. Some of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they'd ever had.
Thanks so much for making our 'big-day' so special.
Russell and Betty,
We are so happy to have had the opportunity to have you cater our wedding. The food was simply amazing! We had many compliments from our guests and well as happy taste buds all around.Many thanks.
We both thank you and your staff for such a fabulous meal and making our dinner party so successful. Our guests enjoyed themselves and are still telling us what a wonderful evening they had...
