    In the beginning, I was kind of nervous about using a small local business for my wedding, it’s your big day and you don’t want anything to go wrong, but I AM SO GLAD I DID! Ms. April was so nice and accommodating, I have the tendency to ask a lot of questions, (which I did) but she answered everyone quickly with easy and a smile. You can tell she knows her stuff! They were SUPER affordable and still managed to give me the wedding of our dreams. I had nothing 8 weeks out from our wedding (no linen, no centerpieces, no flowers, no party favors) I am so grateful to have found them she helped me find a venue, photographer, DJ and decorations in a matter of a week!!!! She does these photo back drops that are absolutely gorgeous. She really took care of us and made us feel like part of their family, she even bought us a gift. The crazy thing is I have talked to other people that have hired her and she apparently does that for every one of her clients, how awesome is that! We received amazing feedback from our family and friends on how beautiful everything was, how professional they are, and how creative the decorations were. I will definitely be using them for anything I have coming up in the future and I have already referred her to friends.

From a valentines dinner for two, full meal for the family delivered to your door, meetings, weddings, box lunches for the office, you name it, and I can do it. I cook all types of foods, but being from MS southern cooking is my specialty. I use only fresh ingredients not frozen or prepackaged items. I have been in business for 14 years. My service and customer relations skills are excellent. I have been nominated by George County Economic Development for "Outstanding Business Woman of the Year" 2004, 2005, 2007. I can create a personalized menu for you that you and your guests will never forget.


      I shoot with the best rated full frame camera currently on the market. My lenses are also best rated by DXO Mark. I edit in raw and am very knowledgeable with extensive photoshop editing techniques such as dodge & burn and frequency separation. I am very passionate about my work and passionate about my customers. Many tell me that I have a natural eye for photography. I love capturing the beauty around me through my photography. Weddings have so many opportunities for this. I love to capture it all in a fine art journalism way. My customer's excitement and love for my photography fuels my photography addiction :)

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      Do you tip a wedding caterer?

      Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
