Testimonials

  • "I just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with Above and Beyond's catering of Kelsey and Drew's wedding. Your staff was accommodating and cooperative. They did a good job of keeping the food "re-stocked" and of serving our guests politely and graciously. We had rave comments about the food. I think everyone enjoyed the uniqueness and variety of the foods offered at the different stations. I was especially impressed with the presentation and how you made it all have a "touch of class and elegance." All in all, we were very pleased."

  • "I don't know how to begin to thank you for making our wedding reception exceed all our expectations! Your large facility and David's easy manner is what first drew us to choose you for the reception, as well as how much you work to make an event like this affordable. Every time we spoke with anyone in the office, we felt like we were the only event you were planning. You always knew the details of our event and were so patient with ever detail in the planning. You were so accomodating with the special meals we needed for guests with allergies and it was done so that the rest of the guests weren't even aware they had a special meal. We were impressed with the decorations you had to offer and with everything you did to set up the rooms before the reception, even down to the menu on the tables and lighting all the candles. We were so pleased with the first sight of the rooms when we arrived...The staff brought out the meals and cleared things so efficiently, that you almost weren't aware they were around. Many guests commented that is was the best meal they had ever had at a wedding and also commeted on the service. I also noticed that the room looked almost as good at the end of the reception as it did at the beginning because the staff cleared away dishes and glasses all night long. You all made the evening so special for us we will never forget it and will be telling everyone we know of your great service, food and staff. You have named your facility appropriately - you truly do go above and beyond!"

  • Thank you so much for a great reception!  I’ve never been to a wedding where people have raved about the food.  But, everyone I talked to that night had nothing but great things to say about how wonderful and delicious everything was.  I even understand that my mother in law tried to get the recipe for the chicken.  Thanks for making things run smoothly.  I knew that I had nothing to worry about and that everything would run as planned!

  • "I received so many compliments on the site at the Butternut Event Centre, both in apperance, food and service. Many guests commented on how attentive the staff were to their needs. They also raved about the food, which was flavorful and well-prepared. The staff was supremely helpful during out preparations and for our rehearsal. I would absolutely recommend both the venue...and the catering (the staff caters many West Michigan venues)."

  • Above and Beyond is a fitting name because, from start to finish, everything your team did was above and beyond. They were so easy and fun to work with; the creative and thoughtful touches elevated the unique, personal and vintage feeling that we had envisioned. The food was fabulous. There were thoughtful, beautiful touches such as flowers and greenery on the tables and plates of hors d'oeuvres; the food was aromatic and arranged alluringly, producing rave reviews from our guests. The team was professional, helpful and friendly. Throughout the evening, they attentively manicured the tables and offered the highest of service to our guests. They cleaned up as if they had never been there. Above and Beyond has earned our highest recommendation.
