A fall celebration at the wonderful Aberthau Mansion (also known as the West Point Grey Community Centre), brought Jayce and Mike together with close family and friends. An intimate cocktail party in lieu of dinner, with feature petite fours to match the elegance that both Jayce and Elements Modern Weddings put together for the event.
“We were so thrilled to find Taryn, Kyle and their dream team at Savoury Chef Foods. I cannot say enough about the quality of the food and service provided by them. Our wedding guests are still raving about the food. Not only was the menu creative and contemporary, the hors d’oevres were delicious and beautifully presented, and the servers efficient yet unobtrusive. The attention to detail was amazing, from green tea cookies to match the bridesmaids dresses to raspberries atop the petite fours to match the bouquets. It’s a good thing we chose a cocktail style reception and allowed guests unlimited access to the food. I believe there would have been riots otherwise!
SCF was most definitely the right choice to complement our other superb wedding vendors. All of the staff were professional, capable, charming and fun. I wouldn’t even think of using another caterer now that I have found SCF. If you are looking for quality food served with class and beauty, look no further.
A word of caution brides: the food may outshine you on your big day!”
– Jayce & Mike Allen
“Dear Taryn, Kyle and the whole Savoury Chef Foods team,
We just wanted to write and thank you again for the exceptional job that you all did for our October bride. Working with such a tight time frame (just two months to plan the whole thing!) is always a challenge and the entire team was so easy to work with from beginning to end. We are always incredibly appreciative when a service feels so personalized for our bride and groom, even when we know you are handling multiple events at one time.
The food and presentation really added to the casually festive atmosphere of the whole event and we heard nothing but compliments from the guests all night about how much they enjoyed everything. Many, many thanks for all your time and effort, we look forward to working with you again soon.”
