Wedding Reception

AMAZING! I can’t say enough about how well YoChef’s delivered during our wedding. We came to them two weeks before our wedding with a catering emergency and they made sure to listen to our needs and struggles all while creating a delicious menu. So many of our guests were floored by how delicious the food was!

YoChef’s Catering Company did my wedding catering and I could not have asked for a better caterer or Chef. Not only did they work with me on every angle, give me so much advice and help make every detail I imagined come true but they truly put care and kindness into their work on top of it all. I would hire them a million times over again if I could and I’ll continue to shout from the rooftops how incredible they were to work with. Thank you Pam, Chef & team!

YoChef’s Catering Company catered our wedding at The Cheney Place and did an amazing job!! The food was warm, served on time and delicious. They worked with us on creating our own special menu and made sure that all details were accounted for. Pam was especially easy to work with as well. We would definitely recommend YoChef!

Wedding Reception, Saugatuck, MI

We hired YoChef’s Catering Company to serve up some of our favorite Asian dishes out of their food truck for our wedding, and wow! They absolutely blew it out of the water, not to mention Chef and Pam and the team were so lovely to work with, and they worked within our budget, which started to feel impossible with other vendors and food trucks trying to take advantage. Our wedding was a bit different in that we rented the food trucks, however their staff’s service was top notch and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Thank you YoChef’s for being a wonderful and flavorful part of our wedding day!

We had such a great experience with YoChef’s Catering! From the beginning they took very good care of us in making sure we had exactly what we wanted for our special day. They even made sure my vegan and vegetarian guests had something to eat! The food was absolutely delicious and the wait staff were courteous and quick to deliver food to the guests. Would highly recommend using for your wedding day

“Very professional appointment planning a wedding. They answered all of our questions and gave us plenty of options! We are very happy and looking forward to their delicious food as always! Months later we had the wedding and the food was amazing. Plenty of great staff and more than enough food. I am a Chef and I even catered my own wedding! I wanted to enjoy this wedding of my son and Chef Joseff exceeded my expectations. Guests came up and told me what a great job I did, I told them I didn’t do the food. It was as good as I could have done myself but I got to enjoy the party more! They even responded to a last minute change with no problem. You will be very happy if you choose Yo Chef Catering!”

Morgan Boyle

“Yo Chef’s catering handled my wedding this past October and they were incredible. Chef and Pam (and everyone I met!) were incredible and the service was just as great as the food (which was amazing) and I could not have picked a better catering company for my big day. I loved my meetings with them probably too much and missed them after the wedding was done. They have cooking classes (for adults and some for kids!) and my husband and I are going to one of them in a couple of weeks so we can hang out again! I cannot recommend them enough! You will NOT regret anything about your choice if you go with them! I almost forgot to add, Pam worked with me to secretly put out a tribute to my mother’s “extra set of parents” who had made petit fours for her wedding to my dad years ago and Pam made sure they got put on their own table with the photo of them (they’ve passed in recent years) as a surprise to my mom to make sure they were honored as well as other grandparents who had passed. Pam went above and beyond to handle all of that for me and I was SO incredibly grateful.”
