Diverse catered our wedding at Ridley Creek State Park. We met with several caterers before choosing to go with Mike and his team at Diverse. It was the easiest decision we made during our planning. Mike is truly gifted at what he does. From the first meeting, it was clear that he puts his clients' needs above all else and lets the rest take care of itself. My wife and I are both working professionals with little interest in event planning. We didn't know exactly what we wanted. Mike listened carefully to our preferences, budget, and got a sense for our style and tastes. He then took his notes and came up with an incredible menu that was well within our budget. Furthermore, in the days leading up to our wedding, Mike embraced the roll of planner/coordinator. He worked with all of our other vendors and our wedding party to make sure everything went smoothly the day of. Its hard to imagine how we would have handled day of logistics without Mike. We have been receiving complements on the menu for several weeks now. A few of our guests have told us, without provocation, that it was the best food they've had at a wedding. The wait staff, the bartenders, and the chefs were all exceptionally courteous and accommodating. The service was seamless, and they made absolutely sure all the guests were being taken care of with a smile. Very professional and warm. I've probably missed a lot of great things I could say about Diverse. Just read the other reviews and you will get the idea. Its all true. They are awesome. We had a perfect day and Diverse was a big part of it. Look no further. Pros: Great food Exceptional Service Completely customized experience Very good value and transparent pricing Friendly and Professional You are also basically getting an excellent day-of-planner as a bonus Cons: None Very important note regarding Ridley Creek/Hunting Hill Mansion: Diverse Catering is on the "approved caterer" list.
Having planned two weddings within 18 months, we had plenty of opportunity to compare catering services. Mike Schmidt and Diverse Catering was outstanding. Not only was the food great, but even more importantly, he and his staff were always open and willing to accommodate our vision of the event. They always had a "we can do that!" attitude which was so refreshing. Mike never lost his calm, always reassured us right up to the hour of the event that all would be perfect. Mike, thank you to you and all your staff for making our rehearsal dinner truly memorable.
Kevin and I simply cannot thank you enough for all your help in planning our June 6th wedding. It was exactly how we envisioned it and really a perfect day. The food was delicious, the food stations were unique and attractive and the service attentive, warm and professional. Kevin and I felt very well cared for and truly appreciated the attention given to Kevin’s father and my cousin Dickie. My favorite quote of the wedding was from an 8 year old guest telling her friends, “The food is simply fabulous!” It really was. We will happily recommend Diverse Catering to everyone we know. It truly was an event to remember and we couldn't have done it without you.
