Ryan and Woodland Catering were great! The process of working with them was professional and punctual and the service was out of this world. It was so nice to hear from our wedding guests how much they loved the food. It was so nice because so many of them were expecting the same old wedding cuisine but with Woodland Catering, we were able to offer them something really special. I can go on-and-on but simply put Ryan was great, his staff was kind and professional and most importantly, the food was terrific. Would definitely recommend to everyone to use Woodland Catering.
