Dear Nikki and staff,

We can not thank you enough for all of your help with our daughters wedding. Everything went beautifully from the Rehearsal dinner to the wedding. Your staff was amazing and so willing to help. The food was outstanding... being from Texas food is important! It was such a pleasure to work with a caterer who was willing to customize a menu to fit with our budget. That you do not find very often. The food is still being talked about today. it was the best food they say they ever had at a wedding. Thank you so much for your kindness and help with every aspect.

With love and appreciation,

Angela Cline MOB Sept, 2017

Hi Nikki! I wanted to say thank you for all of the amazing food you prepared. I've heard so many compliments about the appetizers and dinner.

It was a pleasure having you cater our event. Take care.

Thanks again, Abigail

Hi Nikki, I hope you are doing well.

Ryan and I wanted to thank you for being a part of our wedding day!It was absolutely perfect and it would not have been the same without you :) You are amazing and your food was delicious! I was able to eat a few bites of the different dishes we chose, and I regret that I did not get to eat more. Between mingling with the guests and all the excitement I knew eating a full plate was going to be difficult. What I did have was fantastic! I did not get a chance that day to say hi or thank you  so wanted to extend our gratitude to you and your staff.

Thank You,

Dana and Daniel


I wanted to let you know how much we loved working with you and your great staff.Trying to work with a limited budget your BBQ  fit the bill... Having  been to  few BBQ events in the past where they just bring the food in foil pans and leave it to get cold, we were delighted with the buffet you set adding a bit of class to a superb BBQ meal. Your prices are amazing and ALL that you provided was superb even including the non alcoholic beverages which was a time and money saver. We enjoyed every aspect of our dealings with you...

Thank you again,

The Meyers family

Everything was delicious but I especially enjoyed the lemon chicken, it melted in my mouth. The staff was also wonderful. They were very friendly, attentive, and efficient. And thank you so much for taking care of the chair covers and bows. It was very convenient to have everything done through you and not have to worry about another company.

Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!

Dear Nikki and Staff,

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to you and your staff for making Leann and Grant's wedding day at the Historic Pinecrest on June 13th so special. Nikki the brisket and the chicken marsala were excellent as was the rest of the meal. We received many compliments on the appetizers also. Thank you very much for your guidance in planning the food to serve our guests and for everything running so smoothly. The room looked beautiful with chair covers and bows so thank you for your expertise with that also. It was a comfort to know we were able to enjoy the day with our daughter and new son-in-law without having to worry about the service of our family and friends. The day could not have been more perfect!

Please feel free to call on us as a reference for your company if needed. We would gladly use your catering service again and will highly recommend you to others.

Sincerely, Pam and Jerry Varner

Thank you so much for being so easy to work with and creating such excellent food for my wedding.Thank you also for making a special effort to make food for all the youngsters attending the wedding.

My Uncle is in the food service business and when commenting about your food he said "I appreciate good food. The texture of the chicken and beef was excellent and very moist. The sauce on the chicken was outstanding. Please take this compliment to heart because he doesn't give compliments unless they are extremely warranted.

 Thank you again for helping make my wedding day perfect.

Nikki,Thank you for helping make our wedding day a success! We appreciate all of you hard work! Matt and Olivia 9-20-14

We hired Catering by Nikki for our daughters wedding reception in Colorado Springs, August 2014. The Chicken Marsala, Beef Brisket and the garlic mashed potatoes were melt in you mouth delicious! Her staff was fantastic, the price was very reasonable and Nikki was helpful and willing to adapt the menu to our needs which made this a pleasant experience for us since we were planning from Nevada.

Sue Helms

Nikki, Thank you so much for all you did at our wedding! We loved the food and the services you provided.

God Bless,

Chris and Gilian

Hi Nikki

I just wanted to thank you for helping me to bring my daughter's wedding together. I expected your food to b outstanding-we had sampled that-and it was. What I did not expect was how you helped me bring the wedding together!

We were on a tight budget and saved thousands by planning and executing the whole affair ourselves. Not a small feat, by any stretch of the imagination! You were there for me gracefully, whenever I had a question. You have so much experience with many different scenarios of weddings so that you were able to guide me and provide probable outcomes with all my "what if's"

It is truly mind-bobbling how many more details pop up whenever ANY decision is made. And that is where you helped me the most.

Then, during the reception, your staff was so kind and helpful. That was another very pleasant, very appreciated surprise.When an event is catered well, you hope the staff will be somewhat invisible because things are running so smoothly that you can simply concentrate on enjoying yourself and your guests. That was the case with your staff. But, beyond that, it was obvious that they really cared about those they were serving. They were very gentle and attentive when anything was asked of them. It was like a welcome balm during a stressful time when a hundred things were going on at once. We were confident that that part of the event was handled, and handled well. Please let them know how much that meant to us.

I really would not consider doing anything like this again without you or your staff.Thank you so much for helping to make this come together so seamlessly for us. You have become a valuable contact and friend.

Dawn Warden  wedding 8/30/14 Cathedral Pines

Love, Kelly, Brian and Erin and Tanner 6/15/14


 Dear Nikki,

We can not thank you enough for the wonderful food at our wedding(everyone is still raving about how yummy it was)! We couldn't think of anyone else we would have rather had, you were absolutely wonderful!


Kelly and Carly Hennegan

 I wanted to let you know how wonderful the food was the other night. Your food was the best! I am still enjoying the Raspberry Chipotle Pork in sandwiches. I am freezing the little I have left over to share with my son. He will love it along with the Swedish Meatballs. They were both delicious and not overpowering. Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness  in donation food for the HOPE retreat fundraiser for breast cancer survivors. I hope you will get some future orders from our gathering. I will be very glad to recommend you. 3/2/14

Thank you again,


Our family is deeply grateful for the beautiful catering assistance Nikki provided for our son's Celebration of Life Service at La Foret. This was a most difficult time in our lives and Nikki went out of her way to make it as seamless as she could for us.

Her hor douvers were beautifully presented, delicious and came in without issue and were cleaned away without a worry. We especially appreciated the measures that Nikki went to to assist us in getting tablecloths early for set up and many other

small details that helped settle our anxieties on the day.


The Maynard family

Thanks Nikki for the amazing food at Preston and Stephanie's wedding!! My uncle who drove here from Wisconsin was enjoying the dinner and said,"I would have drove another 500 miles for this." That pretty much sums it up. It was wonderful!!

Trish Flake 

Thanks so much Nikki, and Nora and gang! It was a really cool night and you all did a GREAT job!!

Nikki McDonald is the consummate food catering professional. I have employed Catering by Nikki on numerous occasions, and for every event, she delivered a delicious repast that has thoroughly satisfied our patrons. Catering by Nikki was my first choice to provide meals for the legendary Charlie Daniels Band during our 2013 music festival.It is a joy to work with Nikki, as she always exhibits a sunny, pleasant disposition. I cannot recommend Catering by Nikki Highly enough.

again. I know it won't be for a wedding, but who knows right?

My Love to you,

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for helping make our wedding so wonderful. We will recommend you to everyone.

- Brian West

I just wanted to touch base with all of you to let you know what an incredible experience we had with you and the rest of the folk at Pinecrest. I had no idea you provided so many services in these packages. I would consider this a turn key wedding of the most excellent kind. Nikki the food was delicious, the tables and set up were beautiful. I have had 3 girls get married now and this was by far the most incredible experience we have had. I recommend you to everyone.

Thanks again,
