Read our accolades. Design by Desire works hard to ensure our customers are always happy.

Stephenson Wedding

When we were looking for a caterer for our wedding, we found that most services offered minor variations on pretty similar options. We really wanted the food to meet both of our tastes, our budget, and the needs of our guests, so when we came across Design by Desire, we knew we had found the right match! We gave Marcel some guidelines about what he was looking for, and he offered more than we could have hoped for in terms of options and variety! Handling the food for our wedding quickly became the least of our worries, as we knew it was in good hands, and within our budget!

On the day of the wedding, Marcel and his crew did a wonderful, professional job with getting everything set up in a timely, unobtrusive manner, and the food ended up being one of the main highlights of the wedding! People are still making comments to us about the food, months after the reception, and we have referred people wholeheartedly to Design by Desire! We have some very picky eaters in the family, and they were SO happy with the wide variety of delicious (and beautifully presented) food. Thank you so much, Marcel!

I do not hesitate in the words I choose when recommending Marcel. “Have to have.” If you require any additional information on his record or character, please call or e-mail.

Yannacopoulos Wedding

This past June, we chose Design by Desire catering for our daughter’s wedding reception.  Marcel and his staff were amazing!  From the thoroughness of the initial quote to the tasting and the final menu, Marcel was professional, helpful and always accessible. Marcel’s menu recommendations were right on and it was not a problem to “tweak”any menu items or details. The day of the wedding, Marcel and his staff arrived at our home and made sure all details were looked after they are super organized.  All the guests commented on the quality and presentation of the food, and the professional, courteous staff.

Due to the success of the wedding- my husband and I decided to hire Design by Desire again in December for our annual company Christmas party.  Again, we were not disappointed by the food or the service!  They helped to make our evening a huge success!

Design by Desire Catering Wedding Reception

This past August 2009, my husband and I were very lucky to secure Designs by Desire for our son’s wedding reception. From the very beginning when we were discussing our reception needs to the end of our event, Marcel and his staff outdid themselves!! From the food to the services provided, Marcel and his staff went above and beyond our expectations. Marcel worked with us to creative an absolutely sumptuous menu that exceeded not only our expectations but our guests were equally amazed by the quality and creative flare.

The staff at Designs by Desire complemented Marcel’s high level of quality in all their tasks. From the wait staff to the bartender, there was no detail too small to attend to. My family and I enjoyed our son’s wedding knowing that Marcel and his staff were taking care of every detail and met all our guests’ needs. I look forward to having Marcel and his staff at Designs by Desire cater our next event and would be happy to share our most memorable experience.

Morningstar Homes Ltd.

Designs by Desire provided the catering services for Morningstar’s staff Christmas luncheon this past December. Marcel was very helpful in assisting us plan a traditional holiday meal with turkey and all the fixings. We were very impressed with the excellent customer service including the initial planning, setup/takedown and in particular we were very pleased with how attentive they were to our staff’s needs. By all accounts this was our best staff holiday luncheon to-date! We highly recommend Design by Desire for your future corporate events.

So happy we found them!
