Client Testimonials

We will be forever grateful to Cheri, Joe and their entire staff for making our fall accented wedding an amazing experience. Cheri Jonson is a pleasure to work with. She took the time to sit down with us (on multiple occasions) to share ideas, provide suggestions, and help us navigate the sometimes stressful decisions involved in planning a wedding. She worked within our budget and made sure that we were happy with everything from the food to the rental items. We still get complements from our guests on how delicious the food was (it was outstanding) and how sweet and professional the staff were. We cannot say enough about how happy we are with our decision. My husband and I highly recommend Gourmet Celebrations for their catering and event planning.

Gourmet Celebrations was recommended to us by a friend. I can not say how glad that my husband and I decided to have Cheri and her team cater our wedding. Our wedding came together very quickly in a short 4 months while working with Cheri - she helped tremendously with great advice, ideas, and helped plan our relaxed yet sophisticated menu.  Joe's cooking skills are extraordinary.  You didn't even need a knife to cut the prime rib, the mashed potato bar was a hit! Everyone loved it. Not to mention to die for baked mac and cheese - I still dream of this.  Our wedding was held in January, at a location that needed our food to be transported from a kitchen into the venue.  Let me tell you that 20 degrees and some snow on the ground did not stop Gourmet Celebrations. The food display was stunning and piping hot! No matter the size, type of party, or style that you have Cheri and Joe can handle it.  I highly recommend them, Cheri can handle any budget, assists in rentals, and decorating too.  She is one of the best in Northern New Jersey.  Thank you Cheri and Joe!

I can not say enough about Gourmet Celebrations. Both of the owners took their time and attention to make sure my wedding was perfect. Cherie the Event Manager, was pleasant and so much fun to talk too during the event when she walked around to see if everything was going good, people thought she was one of the guests. The food was outstanding, I was nervous since we were in a tent in the middle of a wine field, but the food was served hot, fresh and all at once the waiters came out carrying trays of filet mignon, chicken, and seafood trio. I was amazed. Gourmet Celebrations food is very fresh very good. I highly recommend this company, the owner is a Chef (who I got to meet) and he takes such care of everything that leaves his kitchen. I can not say enough about the food flavor and quality. The prices are reasonable and they work in the budget.

Gourmet Celebrations is truly the epitome of class. They understand exactly how to make ANY event, ANY venue a perfect moment. The food isn't the only thing but I will tell you it is spectacular....it's the personal touch, the professional presentation and taking the time to understand the message your event is trying to convey - joyous wedding, union of two people....fun retirement honoring an outstanding lifetime achievement.....corporate meeting getting the job done....annual event for awards ceremony....fun childrens party with a twist....they just know exactly what to do to make it a notch above the rest. The owner, Cheri Johnson simply oozes sincerity and experience. Joe, the gourmet chef whips up some of the most fresh and tasty works of art in culinary skills I have seen from a caterer in many years. Their wait staff and bartender(s) are professional, congenial and wonderful people who wish only to make your event the best one ever and have people talking about it for a long time to come. You simply must try them -- they really are a step above and a world apart from the traditional caterers out there. Way to go Gourmet Celebrations!!!
