After 50 years of planning and catering more than 2,000 unique and completely different weddings and receptions, we understand what you want from your wedding caterer. That’s why we promise to: help you get the most you possibly can for your wedding budget, serve delicious food, match you with a planner who fits your personality, create a unique & personalized wedding that lives up to your lifelong expectations and make sure your entire experience is easy, relaxed and fun. That’s quite a list, but as our couples will share, these are exactly the areas on which we focus.
Tell us your concerns—at any hour—by phone, email or in-person for immediate responses and turnaround. We believe constant communication with our couples is one of the biggest reasons they’re never stressed or worried, which is why we will always be there for you.
The reception is the biggest part of your wedding plan, so naturally there’s a lot to consider: location, menu, cash versus open bar, music…looking at the list alone is stressful. Of course, and most importantly, throughout all of these reception details, we want your reception to reflect YOU.View Our Menus

I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful it was to work with Zillis! We did our catering, bar, and floral (Adorn) through them for our wedding on August 5, and everything was absolutely perfect! People were raving about the food. We had filet as one of our entree choices, and people couldn’t believe how perfectly all of them were cooked. That is a pretty hard thing for a caterer to do! As for our flowers, I was blown away. Katie was incredible to work with and she captured my vision perfectly.
