I was maid of honor at a wedding last weekend where they used Terri's catering services. We were all very disappointed with the service and food.
Guests were forced to wait for over an hour at the reception for appetizers after arriving because the catering staff was over an hour late for set up, and were therefor still setting up when everyone arrived. Appetizers where scheduled for 4pm, dinner at 5pm, but it wasn't until 5pm that appetizers were brought out.
Once dinner was finally served, an hour and a half after it was scheduled, not all the food was hot and at the head table we had to ask for water multiple times because there was none at our table. There was only one non-caffeinated soda so it of course ran out quickly, and the serving of food was stopped according to the original schedule even though it started incredibly late making dinner very short.
I would not recommend this company to anyone, very poor and unprofessional, the staff did not know what they were doing and it inconvenienced everyone.
Luckily the bride was too happy to be bothered by the poor service!
Terri Catered a wedding I recently attended. They arrived an hour late so there was a long wait for food. When the appetizers were finally served, an hour late, they were cold. The fruit was delicious, but it was supposed to be cold. The meatballs were cold and tasted like a frozen product. Nothing tasted made from scratch. It was very unfortunate since a wedding is a once in a lifetime experience! I would strongly not recommend this catering company.

My husband and I chose Sunn Flower Gourmet to cater for our wedding in late September, and were fairly pleased with our decision.
My parents and I loved the food at our tasting a month prior so I just raved about it to my husband to be, excited for us both to enjoy it at our wedding.
We were told two weeks before the wedding, when we were discussing our wedding day details, that we would be able to keep whatever food was left over after dinner was served, so my husband and I mingled with guests after our dinner salad and we danced the night away.
At the end of the evening we were bummed to discover that nothing was left for us to eat, despite having been offered and promised leftovers.
Excellent, quality food. Exquisite combinations. Incredibly friendly staff. Terri honestly felt like family.
Our only disappointment was perhaps in communication or follow through.

The team was very nice and pleasant. Plenty of great food for the event. They arrived early and stayed late.
Definitely recommend. You will be extremely happy with this company.
Terri catered several events for me personally and for an organization I belonged to. Her food is always excellent, creative and I always appreciate her willingness to work with in a budget, what ever it's size. She catered an at home wedding reception for us. The food was perfect, displayed beautifully. The cake was perfect and the wait staff were very attentive to our guests needs. She is a joy to work with. I highly recommend her!
Terri designed the wedding cake for our wedding. From cake testing, to design meetings, to the day of the event, Terri was the consummate professional. Our cake was beautiful and delicious and was one of the highlights of our event. I've attended other events where Terri has catered and the food is ALWAYS delicious! If you need food for your event give her a call, you will NOT be disappointed!
Terri has done sweet tables from me and is amazing to work with. Her food is second to none and her creativity is only outdone by her ability. She never disappoints.
Friendly, professional and flexible. Great experience!
Terri did an outstanding job for the reception following our union ceremony - winter squash lasagna and roast pork loin - our guests still, seven years later, talk about how good the food was! She worked with my partner and I to create a reception within our budget, and then made it all lovely and delicious. Delighted to recommend Sunn Flower Gourmet!
Terri is phenomenal!! Not only does she has make the most delicious cookies and cupcakes, they are gorgeous! She has also come through for me at the last minute and her prices are very reasonable. Thank you Terri!!
Terri helped me prepare for my daughter's baby shower. The food she provided was fabulous. The presentation was lovely. And she stayed patient with me, even though I was a nervous WRECK.
Any time we are in IL, we use Terri for our cakes! She has done both of our wedding cakes, my 30th birthday cake, our daughter's and our son's 1st birthday, my daughter's 3rd birthday cake, my husband's welcome home from deployment cake and will be doing many more. I give her very little guidance and I have NEVER been disappointed!
