LOVED working with the entire team at Simply Elegant! We booked the Waterfront Park location for our wedding. Jade and the entire team did an incredible job right from the start. It was such a relief knowing that they would take care of the set-up and take-down for us. They also created absolute stunning flower arrangements for our bouquets, archway and reception tables. The reception dinner was delicious as well. Our guests kept commenting how beautiful the venue was, and how good the food was. Thank you so much Simply Elegant!

Simply Elegant catered our wedding reception last Saturday, the staff was exceptional and even though it was a small event made every effort to make it perfect for us. The flowers, both ceremony and reception were beautiful and we got many compliments. We had a cocktail menu, everyone said the food was delicious and that they couldn’t eat another bite! Thanks to Jade and Peter who were very helpful and prompt to answer my many emails.

We hosted 60 people for a graduation celebration. This group was a mix of adults, graduates and a couple little ones. The staff went above and beyond serving everyone with care and attention to their needs. The food was beyond description and many glowing reviews from the guests. Thank you for making our event a success.

We ordered Christmas dinner from Simply Elegant catering and everything about the experience was great. The ordering process was easy and they were very responsive to questions. The quality of the food and presentation exceeded our expectations. We may never cook Christmas dinner again 🙂

Our family Christmas dinner, catered by Simply Elegant, was excellent! It was one of the best I’ve had - in terms of quality of food and creative recipes (sorry to any family members reading this who may have cooked a Christmas dinner in the past!). Our group was small but Simply Elegant was prompt in responding to our requests. I’m not one prone to writing a gushy review, but Simply Elegant deserves one! Thank you for making our dinner special.

Simply elegant truly is an all in one company. One week ago today my husband and I worked with them to renew our wedding vows. Waterfront park is a beautiful peaceful setting perfect for our sunset renewal. The food was terrific and staff was very professional, so pleasant and helpful. How can you go wrong when one call gets you a venue, a marriage commissioner, food, beverage and staff so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy whatever you happen to be celebrating!

I contacted Simply Elegant to cater a home cocktail party for us and their service was excellent! They emailed a sample menu based on our budget and it was perfect. They came and set everything up and explained each dish to us and then came back the following Monday to pick up their dish ware. Our guests were also impressed and many asked which catering company we had used.
We would definitely book with Simply Elegant for future events and would recommend them to others !
