We are so happy that we went with Russell Morin for our wedding. We worked with Renee, who was exceptional. She was so helpful, kind, and understanding. We had a lot of questions and she was patient, provided great recommendations, and solved any problems. In the planning process, Renee and the chefs at Russell Morin were so accommodating in adjusting the menu after our initial tasting and working with us to craft a menu that every single guest would enjoy. The staff on the wedding day was also great! With minimal instruction they placed our decorations throughout perfectly. Amy took care of us through the whole thing as our personal attendant. We got great compliments on the service and food, with one of our guests even saying that it was the best fish they ever had. There were so many special touches including truffles for our guests as they left and takeout boxes for my husband and I in case we got hungry later. It was ideal. Thank you so much! More...

I have been a wedding planner here in RI, mainly in the Watch Hill / Westerly/ Weekapaug area for 16 years now. Russell Morin has always been my 'go-to' caterer and have always been thrilled. However, this last wedding brought on a whole new level. It was amazing. Family style dinner service executed exactly as the bride had envisioned, an overflowing harvest table, beautifully presented food, knowledgeable and courteous staff all combined to make this a beautiful night. Rachael, Ryan and their staff outdid themselves. There is never a short cut, never a shortage of staff to keep the entire event on time and flowing seamlessly. Planning with Rachael for the last 6 months has also been a pleasure. I wish I had the food photos to share from the photographer.
Thank you to the entire crew from Saturday in Weekapaug. You were fabulous!

My then fiancé and I are from Ohio and decided to have our wedding in Newport, RI. To say planning a wedding out of state without any help is a tremendous understatement. Luckily, I met Rachael!! Rachael not only helped us make sure all the food was plated to perfection, with dietary needs in mind, but also became more of my feet on the ground. She provided decor and vendor guidance, venue options, and the list goes on and on. She even has a hidden talent of being a hair dresser if you truly need it, ha. Josh and I couldn’t have had a more perfect experience and now can’t wait until we come back and have dinner with her and her sidekick Dan. Anyone looking to have a wedding in or around Newport needs not to look elsewhere!! More...

Rachael is the consummate professional. She took care of every detail including details which were the responsibilities of other vendors. She made sure that we were on time and on schedule and put us all at ease while doing so. Minor issues were addressed discreetly and resolved quickly. She has a fabulous personality and it was a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend her as your event coordinator. More...

We were so excited to work with the Providence Public Library and Russell Morin Catering & Events for our wedding on December 14, 2018. Both Paige and Ardriana were an absolute pleasure to work with through this entire experience. I first and foremost would like to thank them for their incredible work on our special day.

Planning a wedding is a very stressful time, but Paige and Ardriana made sure everything went smoothly from the first day we met. They were both professional, organized, and communicated well. From the tiniest of details to larger concepts, Paige and Ardriana helped us make our wedding day perfect. They both worked with our wedding party to set up everything the day of the event. After we came back to the library from taking pictures, our venue was completely transformed into our dream, travel-themed wedding. We cannot say enough about how elegant everything looked. We did not need to worry about a single thing. We also had a wedding attendant all night who made sure we were taken care of. We greatly appreciated this and it made us feel extra special.

We would also like to thank Ormonde Productions for an amazing job with our uplighting. The lighting took our wedding vision to the next level.

We had such a wonderful time planning our wedding with the PPL and cannot thank Paige and Ardriana for all their help. You both are incredibly talented and you took great care of us. Thank you for everything!

There is so much to be said about RMC&E that I do not know where to begin. They were not only just our catering vendor but they also handled our rentals and vision my husband and I had for our big day. Upon meeting Kathleen, this is someone who absolutely loves her job and making couples happy. Kathleen took every vision that we had and brought them to life. We highly recommend her and the company to all future brides and grooms. She is extremely professional, dedicated, and hardworking. Knowing that we have a busy schedule and can lose track of everything, Kathleen always kept in contact and let us know so that we were on top of things. Any questions we had, she was just an email away and always responded quickly. She and the staff at RMC&E went above and beyond our expectations on the day of the wedding. Everything was done on time, organized, and dealt with professionalism. Our guests had nothing to say but the amazing food during cocktail hour and especially the filet mignon! They all said it was the best steak to this day they have ever had! We honestly couldn't have done this without the amazing staff, Kathleen, and Jackie! More...

It was an absolute JOY working with Renee and the entire team. It can be difficult to plan a wedding from afar, but the Russell Morin team made everything easy. the staff worked closely with the happy couple to create a menu experience that was memorable. Out guests loved their appetizers, dinners and other selections. An unexpected vegan request was accommodated with grace. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. We received so many compliments from guests about the food and about how great the catering team and wait staff were. Combined with the perfect venue, music and fun-loving guests, our daughter's wedding was EPIC! Thank you so much for a job well done. I attend many, many corporate and private events in the U.S. and abroad and I would enthusiastically recommend this vendor! More...

We absolutely loved working with Morins catering and with the Providence Public Library! Our wedding day legitimately went off without a hitch (everyone says something will go wrong but nothing did, which I think is a testament to how wonderful and prepared their staff is). It was so easy to work with Paige and the rest of the team at the PPL/Morins! We cannot recommend this company and venue highly enough! More...

My husband and I were married at the Providence Public Library on April 20, 2019 and the event could not have been more perfect from beginning to end. We looked at approximately eight wedding venues around Rhode Island (but not Newport), and nothing can hold a candle to the Library. We are a busy couple with neither the time nor the skills to do any sort of DIY for our wedding, so we loved that the Library can stand on its own in terms of décor and was essentially full service, with a dedicated caterer and coordinator and in-house rentals.

During the planning process, Ardriana, and later, Paige, who was my day-of coordinator, were very responsive in answering questions. I would say that they always got back to me in one to three days, which I thought was excellent considering they may be off on business days early in the week after working all weekend, or preparing for events towards the end of the week. During the month and particularly the week of my wedding, I could tell I was top of mind.

On the week of and day of my wedding, I referred all questions from my other vendors to Paige, which was amazing. I didn't have to decorate, call vendors, or confirm deliveries. In fact, I don't think I answered one question on the day of my wedding other than whether I wanted another glass of white wine (the drink I had told them before the event I would be having that evening).

The food was excellent (we had the short ribs and cod nantua) and the dinner portions were large. Our incredible, amazing personal butler Janet brought our apps to the bridal suite so we could enjoy without having to eat in front of our guests, which was great. She also pinned my veil onto my head and blocked me from view while I flossed something out of my teeth at some point, and was generally a lifesaver. THANK YOU, JANET!

We are so glad we chose to work with Russell Morin for our wedding. If you can swing the cost, it will be a great value in terms of the service you receive.

As father of the bride, I would recommend Russell Morin without reservation. They were fabulous overall, and our planner Rachael was the best. They were more than caterers. They helped us imagine our event, and then made our dreams a reality. The day of the event was a capstone on all of the preparation, planning, and dedication that they put into my daughter's wedding. The food and hor d'ouevres were outstanding. We got so many compliments about how unique and delicious the hor d'ouevres were and how the main courses were delicious and well portioned. Rachael, in particular, was phenomenal. She made suggestions, accommodated our special asks and went out of her way to make sure that our special day was divine. We can not thank them enough.

Last night I worked a wedding with Paige and her team at The Providence Public Library. From start to finish, the wedding couldn't have gone any smoother! Paige was responsive, flexible, and truly cares about the couples' she is working with. The service was phenomenal, and all the guests were taken care of. HIGHLY recommended!! More...

We just attended the Valentine's dinner at Mount Hope Farm. An exceptional dining experience! The wait staff greeted us with a Cupid's potion cocktail and were wonderfully attentive for the rest of the night. The menu was a perfect combo of dishes followed by dessert. The only one of the 4 courses that had a detracting element was the scallops. They were a little raw and the winter root vegetables that came with the risotto were crunchy instead of cooked through. A small infraction considering how amazing everything else was, and that they served 4 courses of very different to prepare foods seemlessly. I would attend this event again and suggest working with this catering company. So great! More...

We had Russel Morin cater our wedding at Gooseberry Beach in Newport last fall and cannot say enough good things about it. We chose Russel Morin because we loved their focus on fresh and local foods. We are passionate about good quality food and also eating what is in season and local. Russel Morin ended up being so much more than just a caterer, but more of a whole wedding planner for us. Our initial wedding coordinator, who we had such great experiences working with, Allie, found out she would not be able to be there on our wedding day because she was due with her first baby right around our wedding day. At first I was upset about this since she knew all of our preferences and had been so great to work with, but she continued to work with us and introduced us to our new wedding day coordinator. She was even there right until the last meeting just one week before our wedding. The day of wedding coordinator, Mike, was amazing. A few days before our wedding day he took the time to meet with us at our venue to go through the entire day with us again and iron out all of the details. On the day of we could not have been happier with Russel Morin all around. Our wedding was at a function hall at a small beach in Newport and they helped make the hall look like a beautiful wedding venue and the ceremony set up on the beach was exactly what I had always pictured. Between the set up, the food, the service and the personal touch they had, everything was perfect. Mike and all of the servers were so attentive to us and all of our guests. We felt so spoiled that day, with Mike bringing new drinks over to use before we had even finished the one we had so we never had to go up to the bar ourselves. We got so many compliments from all of our guests on how good not only the food was but also the service. We would highly recommend Russel Morin to anyone for their wedding! More...

My husband and I got married January 20th at the Providence Public Library. Russell Morin’s was their caterer of choice. My husband and I are both in the service industry, delicious food and service are things we both feel very passionately about. There is no wedding caterer like Russell Morin’s, people are still talking about how amazing the food was weeks later. We were also lucky enough to work with Ardriana, our wedding coordinator for our day. Ardriana did not miss a beat, she was organized, responsive, and kind. Also, Janet...I’ll never forget Janet. Janet was our bridal butler for the day, literally every time I had a thought of needing something, I turned around and there she was. Janet made sure I had a taste of all of the delicious food, and was never with an empty drink. Ardriana, Janet, and the rest of the Morin’s team Steven and I could not be more grateful for the hard work all of you put into our day. It was truly magical, you guys are the greatest. More...

I am so happy we went with Russell Morin for our event catering. I've been to events where the portions are really small--not the case here! And everything was delicious! I can't say enough about Renee, our event specialist. I loved her. So responsive, so helpful, and went so above and beyond! Seriously, girl deserves an award. Everything was set up exactly how I wanted it. Russell Morin also thinks about the details that allow the bride and groom to just focus on having fun--we both got handed our favorite cocktails the second we returned down the aisle. That's service! They put aside a sampler of hors d'oeuvres for us to eat before we headed into the reception. And they gave us sandwiches at the end of the party just in case we were still hungry. I highly recommend Russell Morin (and Renee!) for events. More...

We were married at Mt. Hope Farm in August. It was the best day!! I know everyone says that about their wedding day, but I still totally believe it to be true. Paige and Justina were our coordinators for our wedding. It was amazing to work with both of them, not just because they were helpful and professional, but because they always were welcoming and listened to our dream for the big day. They were great at communicating with us and helped us bring our big day to life.

The food was top notch! Everyone at the wedding was impressed with the selection and the options. I am so glad that they had a tasting night on site for us to sample the options and get a real sense of what the meals would be like. We chose to have our dinner served family style, and I cannot recommend this highly enough. One of our friends even asked their catering company to try it out after coming to our wedding.

I am so happy with the package they put together for us. From the appetizers to the dinner, we felt that it was personalized to our preferences and adaptable to the things we wanted to include outside of their catering package. The coffeemilk milkshakes were my personal favorite :) We love all the options they give, and the way that there isn't any pressure to add too many things if it isn't in your budget.

I would recommend Russell Morin without hesitation to anyone looking for a catering company. They are truly professional and wonderful to work with. I was so happy with all of their staff. The servers and bartenders were professional and friendly to me and my guests. They even wished us well in our scrapbook which made me so happy and thankful to have worked with a company that cared so deeply about the overall experience. I would not have done anything differently, it was the best.

Russell Morin not only made our wedding an incredible and memorable day for us, but made sure that our guests had just as great of an experience.

My fiancée, Matt and I were married at the Providence Public Library in December 2018; Russell Morin is the exclusive event planner/caterer for the venue, which is the best pairing since peanut butter and jelly.

I'll start with the event planning review -Matt and I were lucky enough to work with Ardriana, who is so incredibly talented at what she does and has the most wonderful personality. We could not help but notice how often, and how much she strived, to say "Yes!" Whether it was a question, a request, asking for her time and ideas, wondering if she could hop on yet another call with us - Ardriana was consistently positive, friendly, informed, and doing everything she could to make sure we could do the things we wanted at our wedding, however untraditional. We also got to work with Paige a little, who was equally as helpful and upbeat. From almost a year out to the wedding up until the days after, Ardriana and Paige were consistently professional, available, gracious and so, so excited for us.

One thing we also loved about Russell Morin is how helpful and accessible their entire staff is; Matt and I also had conversations with Lizzy, the company's chief sales and marketing officer, who had also gotten married at the Providence Public Library and acted as an amazing soundboard for us, providing valuable feedback and ideas that truly helped us shape our wedding. No matter who we reached at Russell Morin, they were helpful and gave us as much time as we needed, even if we had called the wrong person. The customer service was above and beyond - we went from being two people with not the slightest idea of how to throw a wedding, to two people who honestly think they threw the event of the century, thanks to the advice, ideas and guidance of the Russell Morin staff. Our hats are truly off to them in amazement and appreciation.

Now, the part of the review I'm sure you're all looking for - the catering. The food absolutely blew every single guest of ours out of the water. I remember as Matt and I were making our rounds at dinner, I noticed all of the plates at the tables had been scraped clean. Like, the-dog-licked-it-clean-before-the-dishwasher clean. One of my aunts saw me noticing this, and said "Hannah, I've been to dozens of weddings, at expensive and lavish venues, and never have I had such incredible food. WOW!" And every person at that table nodded in agreement! Even now, 12 days post-wedding, our guests are still talking about the food at our wedding. (Note here! If you're getting married in RI, get the Autocrat frappe dessert to give your resident and out-of-town guests a nice taste of RI!) Bonus, because we didn't get a chance to have our dinners (145 guests is a lot of people to greet!) Ardriana was awesome enough to wrap our dinners to go. We have never been more grateful.)

I could truly go on for pages about how amazing Russell Morin is, but the bottom line is, feel confident choosing them. Because you have made a decision that both you and your guests - your parents, friends, family, and even those people you had to invite - are going to be blown away by, and will keep talking about long after the last bottle of champagne is popped.

Thank you to the amazing team at Russell Morin. From the very beginning they were eager and willing to create the menu of our dreams. Their helpful staff made the whole process so easy over the planning period. Then at the actual wedding, it was executed perfectly. People are still talking about the food, in the best way!! We had a unique reception space but the Russell Morin team did not flinch. They were more than happy to take on the challenge and developed the menu and plan of events to suit our needs perfectly. We had apps, then heavier passed apps and plates and finally a station. They catered to our needs, definitely more than they had to but they understood our vision so they worked to make it happen! Thank you! Love, Laurel & Marco More...

I chose Russell Morin's because they offer so many different options, you can really customize your menu to fit your needs! Working with Renee was so simple and easy and she helped me with every little detail. On the day of she was on top of everything from set up, to coordination to dietary restrictions. Most importantly the food was amazing. All of our guests raved about their meals and the dessert station they provide was so delicious and beautiful. I would recommend their services to anyone no matter what the occasion and hope to be able to use them again in the future! More...

Everyone at Russel Morin is incredibly easy to work with, very professional, and will go above and beyond to exceed all expectations! Emily, Kacey, and Janet were SO incredible and will even think of details even the most organized bride may have left off the list! I could not recommend them enough, you will be so excited you chose RM and all guests will be complimenting the food and service for weeks! More...

Russell Morin Catering & Events truly out did themselves at our wedding. Paige, our wedding coordinator, was FANTASTIC from beginning to end. I could not have asked for anything more. There were open lines of communication throughout the entire process. Not once did I ever feel rushed or ignored. She walked us through the process with grace and ease and professionalism. The food was outstanding! We have received so many compliments from our guests from the cocktail hour, to the main course, to the cake...everything was PERFECT. I am so happy we had Russell Morin as our caterer and events specialist. I wouldn't change anything and I would have them back over and over again without a doubt! More...

“Above and beyond” is the perfect phrase to describe the experience I had with RM Catering. Throughout the wedding process, our day of coordinator left to pursue other opportunities and the transition to a new coordinator was seamless. We planned our wedding from Chicago, which made planning tricky at times. We were unable to be onsite for our final meeting, but they took the time to sit on a call and walk through every detail of the wedding. As someone who is a type A person, I appreciated how organized they were throughout the entire planning process.

Now onto the day of the wedding, I am still amazed at how smoothly our day went. We not only have guests still raving about the food, but they are raving about how organized everything was. There were so many small touches throughout the day that took a lot of stress of me. For one, we had a personal butler that ensured we always had drinks in our hands and were being fed. I can honestly say she was my second MOH. At several points throughout cocktail hour, she was carrying a tray of hors d’oeuvres for me as well as my heavy bouquet. When I thought I had lost my bouquet that had my grandmother’s wedding ring attached to it, she assured me she locked it up in the bridal suite!
Everyone says, “you won’t eat on your wedding day” and I can say the myth is true, so I was so happy when the chef set out loaded cheese fries for my husband and I later in the reception. Honestly, choosing the RM team was one of the best decisions we made.

The Providence Public Library was the venue for my [now] husband and my recent wedding. We had originally taken a peek at Rosecliff in Newport (before even getting engaged!) and realized that we didn't want a big ballroom. From there, we discovered that Russell Morin Catering & Events had exclusive venues - one look at the Library online and we knew that'd be a venue to check out once we actually, you know, got engaged. After my husband proposed, we looked at the Library the following weekend and sign the contract that day. Our wedding was AMAZING!!!! After a little turnover in the beginning, Lizzy worked to ensure that our coordinator Mike would be with us for the whole process and boy did Morins deliver. From the service to the food, to the effort they put into understanding and executing on our vision for the day, I cannot recommend Morins highly enough. The Library is absolutely gorgeous and it was so fun for our guests to have different experiences in the spaces the venue has to offer. At one point in the night, my husband slid down the bannister to the Garden Courtyard for the last song of the night. Our guests said they felt like it was a night torn straight out of Gatsby (funny since we didn't use Rosecliff!). Thank you for an amazing experience from start to finish and for executing the best night of our lives! More...

My husband and I used Russell Morin Catering for our wedding in Pomfret, CT. Our event coordinator Renee was absolutely amazing to work with! From start to finish this professional team made our experience stress free. The food is fantastic and we are still receiving compliments from our guests. The entire team that worked at our wedding was so personable, friendly, accommodating, and professional. The catering services surpassed our expectations by offering unique details such as a taco edible spoons bar at cocktail hour, a cordial bar at our coffee station, a delicious caramel cappuccino wedding cake, and to-go meals for my husband and I. I highly recommend Renee and the Russell Morin team. Thank you for everything! More...

Rachael, our event coordinator, took our wedding to the next level. Leading up to the wedding, she always put us at ease; she was responsive and attentive to our needs, and extremely knowledgable and efficient. She helped us turn our wedding dream into a reality. During the event itself, the food was delicious, the staff went above and beyond (for example, staff brought coffee and pastries from the dessert table to our elderly guests at their tables without prompting), the space was beautifully decorated, and the entire evening flowed smoothly--we didn't have to worry about anything except enjoying ourselves. We feel very fortunate to have been matched up with Rachael as our event coordinator. More...

So much more than a catering service. Renee coordinates my wedding this past Sunday and I cannot day enough about her and the team. All of my guests loved their food. Renee kept checking in with us and big shout out to Luis who also took care of my husband and I all night. Every time We needed something, Luis was magically there to take care of us. Food was served in a timely manner.. no waiting awkwardly for food to be served. Honestly such an impressive team that words cannot express the level of service they provided. More...

Russell Morin was amazing! They catered our wedding on September 15th at Tyrone Farm. I highly recommend using them as a wedding caterer. The appetizers and dinner were delicious! Almost two weeks after our wedding, we are still getting compliments from our guests about how delicious the food was!

Renee Beauregard, our event specialist, was extremely organized, attentive to detail, and fun to work with. She helped to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Russell Morin also provided plenty of catering staff to assist at our wedding so that all of our needs, and the needs of our guests, were quickly and readily met. Everyone was friendly, prompt, and efficient.

Russell Morin helped make our special day unforgettable!

We just got married on 9/15/18, and the food that Morin's provided was amazing - most of our guests were very impressed with the quality.

The whole process, start to finish, was one of the best experiences during wedding planning. We had Alicia Dorius as our Sales Manager/Coordinator and we could not have had anyone better. Alicia was always so gracious and was quick at replying to any questions we had. She also had amazing recommendations that shows her attention to detail and knowledge of the industry. She was so calming to have on-site and having her be a part of our day, was the best part of our experience with Morin’s. Our food and staff the day of could also not have been any better! Everyone worked so hard as a team to make our dream into a reality and we cannot thank them all enough! xoxo, The Stamoulis' More...

My husband and I were married on July 22nd at the Providence Public Library. From the moment we stepped foot in the venue we knew it was the exact place we wanted to be standing on our big day! When you think library I know automatically what comes to mind is ugly carpeting and rows of bookshelves (or at least that's what all our family thought) but please, if you are remotely interested in a drop dead gorgeous venue that will WOW your guests, you need to go stop in to have a look! I think I forgot to mention earlier that my husband and I live out of state right outside of D.C. and Russell Morin & PPL made it so easy to work with them and plan our big day from far away! Origianlly we had Lisa Nightingale as a Day of Coordinator, sadly (but happily for her) she moved on to a new role about 6 months out to our wedding day. That is where Michael Marcoux stepped in! We know we can confidently say that without Lisa and especially Michael that our day would not have been as fantastic as it was! Michael was so responsive and understanding, even as I (as a nervous out of state bride) started to question everything as we came up to July 22nd. Michael was there for my husband and I every step of the way just like a good friend would be! He helped us run through everything from start of day to the end, Michael never missed a beat!! He also made it so easy when we arrived with all of our decorations making sure to fully run through where everything would go and ensuring that the day would be beautiful from start to finish. We grew so close to Michael that we view him as a good friend and had him place his finger print on our guestbook finger print tree. All of the staff was incredible, the food delicious and our guests have told us so many times our wedding is the BEST wedding they have ever been to! Please trust us when we say, if you book with PPL you will never regret it, it was truly our BEST DAY EVER!! More...

We are so happy we chose Russell Morin to cater our special day! The staff was professional, kind and always interested in our personal style and tastes. Our point person (Shannon) was always on the ball and flexible with our questions and concerns. Our day of coordinator (Ardriana) made our wedding day run smoothly without any hiccups or stress. We are so thankful for both Shannon and Ardriana, as well as the whole Russell Morin team! More...

Russell Morin and especially Paige, our day of coordinator, were such a rock throughout planning, organizing, and executing our big day. We settled on Mt.

Russel Morin is excellent. I planned on just great food, but the service was outstanding, especially our coordinator, Renee. I'm used to going to weddings where the food is just alright, almost taking a backseat to the location. We had food stations with food that was phenomenal, our guests are still raving about it. My husband is from Italy and his family was here for the wedding. I noticed while the servers were passing apps, they had put a card with the Italian translation of all the apps. It was such a nice touch and something I hadn't even asked them to do. Renee made sure the evening went smoothly and our personal server (Linda, I believe) was so helpful. I recommend these guys to everyone! Seriously, the best! More...

My husband and I had our reception at Roger Williams Botanical Gardens and we are SO HAPPY that we chose Russell Morin from the venue's catering options. Everyone at Russell Morin (literally everyone from the coordinator to the staff at the wedding) was extremely professional, responsive, and welcoming. They continued to think of personal touches during the planning process as well as the day of the wedding. Most importantly, their food was delicious and our guests raved about how great all the food was (including the cake!) Russell Morin went above and beyond not just to provide great food for our guests, but develop a timeline, rent items (we had to provide all tables and chairs for our venue), and deliver amazing personal service. For what Russell Morin provides their prices are very reasonable and actually less than other catering companies available since they are upfront with their prices and don't sneak-in hidden costs. We can not recommend them enough!! :) More...

Kathleen was amazing to work with on planning our big day. She coordinated many details for us (which meant I did not have to :)!) and she was helpful and responsive every time I called. The food was absolutely amazing and we continue to receive compliments from guests. The service and staff were fantastic and the tent was gorgeous! I was referred to RM from a friend who works in the restaurant industry, as the only catering company to hire. We have been told our wedding was the best one they have ever been to! I could not be more pleased with RM. More...

Russell Morin was a dream company to work with for our June 2018 wedding at Shining Tides. The folks we worked with responded to every little email...and trust me, there were many of them from this Type A bride. They helped us develop an experience within our budget and guided us through every decision along the way. When we arrived the day of the wedding, the staff were incredibly polished and professional. Our bridal attendant was so kind and attentive, she helped make the day run smoothly, I didn't have a care in the world! Even when it looked like we would be off track with our timeline due to the ceremony being delayed, the staff worked to make up small bits of time and got us back on track. The food was incredible. They had many unique choices that made for a memorable evening for all our guests! People are still talking about it! Everything was just perfect, even down to the next morning, going to pick up all our decor, which the Russell Morin staff had so carefully packed away for us! Worth.Every.Penny. More...

We absolutely loved working with Russell Morin for our wedding at Glen Manor! Everything from the food to the coordination and execution was fabulous. Our coordinator, Renee, was phenomenal to work with! She was beyond understanding with my busy schedule, and took the time to meet with me via phone before the event. Even though I did not meet with her in person ahead of time, she meticulously set up my decor beautifully. She made sure the event ran smoothly, including making sure an unexpected guest found a seat and a meal. The personal butler made sure my husband and I had our drink of choice ready after the ceremony, that we were well fed, and that we had Dels in hand throughout the hot and humid night. Every member of the RM staff was pleasant, helpful, and had incredible attention to detail. Choosing Morins was the best choice I made for my wedding. You cannot go wrong with Morins as your caterer!

Russell Morin was AMAZING for our wedding at Glen Manor last month! We worked with Renee who was our Coordinator. She was so easy going, professional, responsible and a true joy to work with. We did our tasting six months prior, and the food the day of was just exceptional! Our guests still rave about the presentation, food and service. The whole team is so wonderful, attentive and truly make you feel so special on your wedding day. We can't recommend Russell Morin more. They are truly the best!! Thank you for making our wedding day a day we'll never forget! More...

Our wedding was at Glen Manor and Russell Morin (RM) was one of the catering service approved for use at the Glen. We chose RM because of their initial responsiveness and after a recommendation by one of my coworker who also used them. During the planning phase, I enjoyed working with Lynell, who managed events and coordination at RM. She was always responsive and super detailed-oriented. She kept track of ALL of our email exchanges and the decisions we've made. She coordinated with another rental service (PEAK) when I decided to rent glassware, plates and linens. She sent samples of linens halfway across the world for me to review. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to be the event coordinator at our wedding, but Racheal, another staff member stepped in and everything went well. The criticism I have for RM is there was one thing we decided on that was not done; that was our departing gift box with macaroons would have a gold ribbon tied to a thank you note for our guests. We went over this detail at our last meeting a week before the wedding, so I was surprised when there were no gold ribbon and note attached to the macaroon box. Related to this criticism, is that when we talked about the box, RM confirmed that the box would be fitted so the macaroons (two of them) could be stacked; instead, on the day of the wedding, the box were long to accommodate the macaroons laid side-by-side. This oversight could have been because of the switch in Lynell, who I worked with up until the week before the wedding, to Rachael as being the event coordinator on the day of the wedding. But all in all, I appreciate the staff's professionalism and service; especially, when my husband mentioned to Rachael that I didn't like my steak because it was cooked a bit too raw for my preference. They remade the steaks and had them for us as our newlywed meals to take-away at the end of the night. More...

We were married at mt hope farm-cove cabin august25th 2018. It was the most magical day! Paige, our wedding planner was incredible! I could not have done it without her help and support. The venue it self at the cabin is beautiful; the view is just breath taking! The food from Morin Catering is the Best meal not just served at a wedding, but in general. We had the taco station, grillstation, and salt blocks and everything was 5 star quality. Everything was beautiful and delicious, I wish I could do it all again!! More...

We had Morin's cater our 140 person wedding and they did a great job. From the very start our wedding coordinators Renee and Shannon answered our emails promptly and made sure we understood cost, timeline, etc. We enjoyed our tasting and it was great how many staff we had for the wedding, especially the personal butler who did a great job. We had a little mix up at the end for some decor items that the caterer was supposed to provide for us, but it all worked out thanks to Shannon and the personal butler changing a few things to make it work. The meal was delicious, the cupcakes superb, our guests loved the apps and cookies and cream and truffles afterwards. Morin's is pricey but it's entirely worth it. Thank you Morin's! More...

My husband and I found our dream venue, Shining Tides, in Mattapoisett, MA and never looked back. We learned right away that Russell Morin was their exclusive caterer and after reading rave reviews and seeing pictures, we had no doubt that it would be amazing for our wedding. Originally, Jackie was our point of contact at RM and she was extremely warm, outgoing, and helpful. She was responsive throughout the entire process and helped coordinate our tasting. RM’s tasting was special – everything was delicious and we loved being served mini plates of the entrees but also seeing a big plate of the meal’s presentation. Apps and desserts did not disappoint either. Jackie and colleague Brittany were very attentive and took notes on everything, including our little requests (crispier fish &chips, less sauce on the cod entrée, etc). We also loved how unique the dishes were – special sauces, toppings, and combinations. If anything, turnover and change in contacts at RM was the only bit of a stressor for us throughout the process leading up to our wedding. Jackie left the company, Brittany went on leave, and Kellie took over. Nevertheless, all 3 were amazing, helpful, and knowledgeable! Our wedding day itself was pure magic. Kellie was incredible – a very calming presence! The table settings were just as we envisioned them and everything from the appetizers to the entrees to the desserts was a success. We got SO many compliments on the food (even from our pickiest vegetarians). The presentation of all food was beautiful. We can’t rave about the service enough, either. RM staff was pleasant and professional from beginning to end (Rebecca, the special attendant for us, was amazing too – always there with a drink refill or a much needed bite between photos). Can’t thank RM enough for such a top notch execution and unbeatable cuisine. Wish we could do it all over again! Highly recommend their services and food for anyone getting married in New England!

Words can't even begin to describe my experience with my coordinators from Russell Morin, the food and the service! My husband and I got married at the Providence Public Library, who exclusively works with Russell Morin for catering. Word around town was "they are the best" and they did not disappoint! We are able to to have two tastings! One was a larger tasting at PPL and since we were having a more unconventional wedding menu, we were able to have another and try all of the appetizers and station meals we were offering. The food, I wish I could eat it everyday, was INCREDIBLE!!!! All of my guests (almost 3 weeks later) keep talking about their favorites, seared tuna with an avocado relish on a wonton crisp was one of my favorites! We did passed appetizers, two dinner stations, instead of cutting a cake we did a passed dessert and a brownie sundae bar (which was a guest favorite) and we couldn't end the night without late night snacks. Everyone who worked the day of the wedding were so kind and accommodating and excited for us! Mike and Ardriana who work with both PPL and RM were the absolute best! They were so attentive, genuinely happy and excited for us and kept me calm throughout the entire process. I wish I could re-do my wedding every week!!!!!!! Every detail was perfection, nothing went wrong, and every guest had an amazing time! I HIGHLY recommend if you are looking for a different type of venue with amazing food and service!!!!! More...

My husband and I recently worked with Russell Morin for our wedding and it's hard to say enough positive things about them! Throughout the entire process our consultant, Renee, was extremely easy to work with and very responsive to email. On the day, the food was amazing and the service was totally seamless. Everyone kept complimenting us all night about the tasty food and the friendly, helpful staff. RM has a huge number of food options to choose from when creating a menu and they are very flexible and organized about making accommodations for guests with allergies/dietary restrictions. I would definitely recommend them to friends/family! More...

We loved working with Russell Morin Catering. Here are some of the comments we heard from our guests (and we agree with all of them): "best appetizers I've ever had at a wedding!" "amazing job cooking steak and salmon for so many people!" "portions were large and awesome!" "they made my meal vegan at the event!" "passed drinks and appetizers were so delicious!"

From the set up, coordination, and execution, RM is the best catering you can get-- special thanks to Rachael Coccurello who was our day of coordinator and our planner before the event-- she took over from our first planner who left RM to pursue other opportunities and Rachael made the time to meet with us and my parents before the event. I never had to worry about anything and Rachael made the entire day run smoothly. Choosing RM as our caterer meant that we could fully enjoy our reception, and we did! We had a seated dinner, and our butler made sure that when we made it to our table, there was a selection of appetizers at our place settings-- small touches like these make a huge difference in the heat of the moment. Our butler also fixed my wedding veil and served us drinks right after the ceremony. Great food and drink and personal and efficient service with people who are lovely to work with -- you cannot ask for more! We couldn't be happier. The way they set up our cakes, favors, place settings, and tables made the space look fabulous. The passed non alcoholic drinks before the ceremony were a welcome touch on a hot day and everyone appreciated them.

You cannot go wrong if you select RM for your event or wedding-- it was one of the best decisions we made!

"Mount Hope Farm was the perfect place to hold my son's rehearsal dinner. The grounds were green and well maintained, and the barn had character (in the best way!). Most importantly, the staff at Mount Hope Farm made it easy to coordinate this event remotely. Although I wasn't there in-person to ensure things were going as planned, I never felt as though I needed to be. They were thorough and professional, and I felt like I could trust them with the details of this important day. Once the celebration came, the on-site staff carried on this level of professionalism. They were attentive to our every need, and ensured our guests had an evening to remember! The catering by Russel Morin was delicious and plentiful. Our lobster boil dinner was delicious and the lobsters were a very good size. The staff was very attentive, always clearing the empty lobster shells from the table. I wish we had had more time for dessert which looked delicious but was cleared away before everyone could sample. More...

We used Russell Morin Catering for our wedding and we were not disappointed. Although at our tasting we did not get to try all of the options and we selected almost all of our items without ever seeing or trying them first, we were so pleased with how good everything was at our wedding and how it was easy to choose gluten free, vegetarian, and even vegan options for our guests. Our families told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had. More...

We used Russell Morin for our wedding in Boston, MA in July 2018. We can't speak highly enough about the job that Renee B. and the team did to help pull off our event.

Throughout the entire planning process, Renee kept us at ease, helped work with our budget, provided recommendations that ended up being incredibly useful, and led flawless execution on the day of the event. All of this in a venue that had a small kitchen, with very limited space for a large wedding.

We still have people emailing us about the amazing Indian food that the team provided. From the tables/chairs, decorations, interactions with our alcohol vendor, they handled it all... Whatever we needed, Russell Morin and Renee provided, and we cannot thank them enough!

We recently had our wedding at Mount Hope Farm and worked with Kacey throughout the entire process to plan the most delicious meal for our family and guests. While we did not get to choose our food and drink vendor, we felt incredibly confident with the quality of Russel Morin's catering. We had heard great things, and it lived up to the hype!
We wanted a reception a little different from previous weddings we had been to, but weren't exactly sure what that meant, other than we wanted it to feel like "an amazing cocktail hour" but the entire time. Kacey helped us realize that a stations menu would be exactly the vibe we were hoping for, and recommended stations that would help us keep within budget. Our guests raved that they loved not having a 'sit down meal' where they'd be stuck to their chairs the entire dinner section. Instead they got to choose from three delicious stations, and enjoy their meals inside, on the deck or on the green over the bay mingling as they ate. Guests loved the New England station with stuffies, crab cakes and fish & chips, and the make your own noodle bar station! We were worried about making sure there was enough for everyone, but Kacey assured us RM would budget for plenty. One guest told us that he had five noodle plates, and that was the most comforting to us, knowing everyone was fed well, and happy to have real choices about what to eat.
As we approached our big day, and were nervous about the weather and our indoor/outdoor venue, I felt comforted to know that even if the weather didn't cooperate, our guests would eat and drink well, and what more can you ask for!

AmaZing food and service.
We had to plan our wedding from California one year before it and it turned out amazing with this provider.
Lynell, the VP, is great staying in contact with you as a client, she is on top of everything.
The quality of the food is great, I have not enough compliments for this. All the guests, even the more picky and foodie, loved it.

The bartender was great too, he nailed it making the traditional Peruvian drink: Pisco Sour.

The waiters were on top,
Professional , and always with a smile and professional attitude.

We did only 2 tasting. I wish we did 3 but we couldn’t since we were so far, but were enough.

Great company

"Have you ever been to a wedding where every single detail of the entire occasion from cucumber water start to peanut butter and jelly finish was just perfect? #ihave #mounthopefarm" These are the words of one of our guests the day after our wedding.

We were married at Mount Hope Farm on June 9, 2018 and Russell Morin's was an absolutely amazing, instrumental partner in making our wedding a perfect day! From first contact and tour of the venue through the planning process and absolutely perfect coordination of our wedding day, we couldn't have asked for a better team than Paige and Kacey at Russell Morin and Mt. Hope Farm. My husband and I were pretty particular about what we wanted at our reception, and an excellent meal was at the top of the list. RM has such an extensive menu to choose from that it took a while for us to narrow it down to the right menu, but I'm confident that our guests had the best wedding meal ever! The appetizers were not only creative, but also extremely tasty. We had a plated dinner service with four options, and our guests raved about every single one, but the scallop dish with minted pea puree was spot-on. Emily at RM made us a custom cake with three different flavors, each one better than the last. She even created a lemon blueberry cake just for us. The passed desserts were also a big hit!

We picked Mt. Hope because we had heard great things about RM food, and it absolutely lived up to the hype. But I would be remiss if I left out how wonderful the service was. RM provides us with a day-of coordinator who absolutely made sure that everything ran smoothly from before we arrived until after we left. The barstaff was also phenomenal and I was impressed at the speed they were able to serve our guests. Finally, the waiters were all top-notch. Our reception may have been in under a tent, but the high quality of the food and the service team made it feel like a fine dining experience. Thank you RM!

Russell Morin is amazing! They catered our wedding at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport at the end of May. We were so impressed with how everything turned out. Kathleen was our event coordinator and she was awesome! We didn’t have a separate wedding planner, which we were a little concerned about, but we really didn’t need one working with Kathleen. She looked into every detail to make sure the events of our wedding ran smoothly and everything looked great. When we wanted to order special table linens last minute, and there weren’t enough of the ones that we wanted, she suggested another linen that would coordinate well with the ones that we had chosen. They looked beautiful together at our wedding! We had a few last-minute changes the weekend of our wedding, and she was able to accommodate our changes. She even gave us her cell phone number for anything else we needed help with last minute, which we actually had to use! She was always very pleasant and helpful. At the reception, she even helped the two best men set up a last-minute presentation, which included a few props, as part of their toast! The rest of the staff was also great! They set up all the decorations that we brought for the guestbook table, place card table, our sweetheart table, all the guest tables, and the dessert table. Everyone was so kind and provided great service. My husband and I had our own personal butler who brought us food and drinks when we were too busy taking pictures and couldn’t get to the food ourselves. We were so appreciative of this! The food was AMAZING! The two entrees that we chose to serve our guests were the pistachio crusted sea bass and the truffle dusted filet. My husband and I both had the sea bass and it was delicious! Other guests who had the filet were raving about the filet as well! We had so many compliments on the food. Many of the guests said that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding!

Every person I spoke to was helpful, accommodating , not pushy, and very attentative to every detail. The hospitality at the tasting was over the top and the food was wonderful. Russel Morins made planning the wedding a breeze. I feel like they treat you like they know you from a personal level which as we all know is a great warm and comforting feeling especially during a stressful but happy time. I can't say enough great things about this company. I'd love to give a shout out to Ms. Jackie Sahagian for her kindness and responsiveness, and her genuine willingness to make sure that I was happy . She is a great woman who is fun and makes planning out the details seamless. Thank you for everything! -Nadia More...

Russell Morin were an integral part of our wedding this past October, and they absolutely exceeded all expectations. We knew they would be our caterer when the owner himself took time to drop in on our first meeting, introduce himself, and chat. You can tell he is passionate about this company, and it shows in their quality and service. Top notch food, not a single complaint was heard. Better than many restaurant meals I have had (and I've had a lot). The coordinator through the planning process and the day-of coordinator were fantastic. If you're looking in the category of Blackstone, Blue Rocks, Glorious Affairs, etc. I think Russell Morin are head and shoulders above them. More...

We loved working with this company. We were totally clueless as to what makes for a good wedding, and they just led the way. You work 1-on-1 with a wedding coordinator (in our case, Kacey!) who is always answering your panicked and sporadic emails with grace, and promptness. She helped us plan a wedding from 2500 miles away! Thanks again girl!

The food is freaking spectacular. I literally did not hear one complaint from anyone. I am still thinking about the bacon wrapped shrimp! A wedding day butler works with you all day, with their only goal being your happiness and comfort. We were absolutely blessed with Janet's services day of, she helped us gobble down some last minutes munchies after our nerves subsided, and always made sure I had champagne! She even helped me touch up my makeup after sobbing through my ceremony. Couldn't have done it without you!

I would definitely recommend this caterer if good food is super important to you, because you can't go wrong!

Amy and Russel Morin were incredible. We were engaged for two years, and the caterer was one of the first vendors we chose, so we had a very long working relationship with them. Amy was our point person the whole way through, from initial meetings, to tastings, and was there on our wedding day executing everything perfectly. She was able to act as our coordinator the whole day, working with our DJ, our photographer and our florist to make sure everything went smoothly. The food was incredible, the service impeccable, and Morin's includes a service member to be personally assigned to the bride and groom for the whole day as our 'butler'. Anne was amazing, and was waiting for us at the end of the ceremony with one of our signature cocktails for each of us. She was incredibly attentive all night and made sure everyone at our head table was taken care of.
Morin's is a big company, and can execute pretty much anything you can imagine for your wedding. Amy helped keep me calm in the face of overwhelming wedding stress, and pretty much helped make the day better than we ever could have imagined. If you choose Morin's you will not be disappointed!

After all we had been through we were so relieved and thankful to work with such a professional company. Everything was flawless and we were outside under a tent at the very last minute. I would recommend Russell Morin to anyone considering them and I'm a very picky person, they are the absolute BEST! More...

One of the toughest decisions in planning a wedding (or any event) is picking the caterer. Luckily we found Russel Morin! They came highly recommended by our venue (Glen Manor in Portsmouth, RI), and they did not disappoint. We live out of state, so it was very important to us to have someone that could coordinate with us over email and phone. Meghan, our Russel Morin coordinator, did just that; from the early emails looking at how we wanted to organize our catering, to day-of coordination, everything was done in a timely and stress-free fashion.

This was our first time planning an event for 100 people, so it was really nice to have someone with experience guide us through the process. We decided to go with a served salad and two stations (Pasta and Grill). We were extremely impressed with the quality of food during our tasting, and they really do cook some amazing food. Now normally, at least in my experience, food catered at weddings, is, well... catered food. With our wedding this was not the case. In fact, when we spoke to our guests, one of the things they remembered the most (aside from the ceremony and toasts) is how good the food was. The steak was medium rare, the pasta delicious, and the way our guests went to get seconds of the mushroom ravioli it'd be easy to think that this was a chef's tasting event, and not a wedding.

With Russel Morin, the planning process was simple; Meghan was always there to walk us through the desserts, or how many bottles of wine we should have. Most of all, on the day-of they really took care of everything, leaving us time to enjoy our own wedding. One piece of advice that we got a lot before the wedding was to make sure we eat at our own wedding; and with Russel Morin, THEY made sure that we did. The hors d'oeuvres that are as good as any I've had, but also save room for the main course and the desserts - it's well worth it. We can't recommend them enough!

Morin's was certainly our BEST wedding investment. I am still getting texts about how the food wasn't just good wedding food, but OUTSTANDING food, in general. Restaurant quality. Hot. Delicious. Everyone's favorites were the mini fish and chips and mini milkshakes. In addition to the food quality, Amy, my wedding coordinator was the absolute BEST! She worked well with my vendors to turn our venue, The Towers, into pure magic. I had provided Amy with about 20 boxes of details (haha) and she set them up to exceed even my wildest dream. Additionally, she helped keep everything on track and running smoothly, even with some hiccups, which I am eternally grateful for. I am still swooning over how everything came together, and it wouldn't have without Amy and her dedicated team. I just need a reason to throw a party so I can have Morin's cater again! THANK YOU!

Visited Mount Hope Farm as a potential wedding venue. They had a farmer's market going on while we were there which was very nice. One lady selling socks and mittens was a little unreasonable. We were going to three pairs of socks for over 75$ and she would not cut us a deal. The lady we met to show us around was very nice and knowledgeable. However it does not seem as though they will negotiate on price too much. They only deal with one catering company which is very expensive. Overall though, the grounds are beautiful even during our November visit. Don't count this place out! More...

We had such a fantastic experience with RM. Our venue (Mt. Hope Farm) worked exclusively with them and at first, we were reluctant about not being able to vet companies on our own. After reading all of the rave reviews, we realized that we wouldn't need to look elsewhere because RM is truly the best. It actually saved us a lot of time and worry and we felt confident that we would have amazing food throughout the whole process. We went to their tastings and events and sampled their endless combinations of food/deserts and always left feeling happy and well taken care of. The staff were also amazing and Courtney Libby was our point person for the whole event. She and her team were fantastic and I thank everyone for making our wedding day go off without a hitch!

Call off your search for the perfect catering company, Russel Morin's is who you want! My husband, Dave, and I knew from our first meeting with Meghan (our coordinator), that this was the company to work with. She was so thorough and informative, without being pushy, like some other companies we met with. I consider myself to be a very detailed and type A person, but Meghan and her staff took it to another level. We ended up getting some unpredictable rain on our wedding day. Meghan was there to make sure everything went smoothly and offered some great suggestions last minute to help off-set the crummy weather. Our guests could not stop raving about the food; from the passed apps to the plated dinner to the after dinner drinks, everything was delicious! The service they provided was incredible and our day would not have been the same without them. Lastly, we owe a huge thank you to our butler Alana. All night she made sure we were never without a drink in our hand and she made it a point that we got to eat all food options that we served. So many couples say they never get to eat on their wedding day; we are so thankful this was not the case for us. It was hands down the best food and service we could have asked for. We cannot recommend them enough! Thank you Russel Morin's!!! More...

People are still talking about the best they ever had Lobster Mac & Cheese. I am so happy we didn't even consider another caterer once we met with Erica. We just knew it would be perfect and it was. Thank you. More...

I am so happy we chose Russell Morin (and specifically their Ananda service) for our wedding this past weekend. We had Meghan as our coordinator and she worked with me over the course of the entire year to plan this event. The food was incredible, and the entire event was just perfect. We met with Sanjiv (from Rasoi, the Indian portion of the catering) separately and chose that menu with him. He made sure everything was absolutely perfect for us. He provided his own chefs for 2 live Chaat stations for cocktail hour and also for the dinner. We did have some Vegan guests which I didn't tell him about until the week before the wedding, but he was sure to make special Vegan meals for them without me even having to ask. Russell Morin provided all of the wedding service and all of the passed hors d'oeuvres. We chose the mini Lobster rolls, lobster tater tot, chicken and waffles, fish and chip cones and Poke chips. They even specially made bacon wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, which are one of my favorite foods in the whole world. Everyone raved all night about how amazing the food and service was. My father in law still can't stop talking about how great the lobster rolls were.

We had our own personal butler who took such amazing care of us all night. He literally made sure we had food in front of us and drinks in our hands all night long. I dropped off an entire uhaul full of decor and signs to be arranged for the wedding, and Meghan had everything set up perfectly and beautifully in time for the event. Meghan coordinated the entire ceremony and came to get me when it was time for me to start walking. Meghan thought of everything, and even asked me the week before the wedding what the first drink we wanted as a married couple was. She had this waiting for us immediately after the ceremony, with a platter full of all the hors d'oeuvres for us to try. Our wedding was perfect, and it would not have been the same without Meghan and Russel Morin!

I cannot say enough good things about our team from the Providence Public Library. We started planning with Ali and then Lisa who made it an easy decision to commit to Morins and the PPL! Nothing we came at them with was impossible and that was amazing, and in the end it was all exactly how we had envisioned! Kacey took us most of the way and she really helped us with all the coordinating of outside vendors, decor and setup, and just basically how to plan and run a wedding. Anything we needed, Kacey was there for us day and night, answering all my crazy questions and figuring out our unique requests. When it came to the day of the wedding we really had no worries and knew the event would be the best it could be.
The number of people who came up to us during the event to tell us how good the food was, that was really awesome. We knew how good everything was from the tasting, and it exceeded expectations. Loved the apps, the entrees were great and adding the extra dessert (s'mores) was hit of the night! We had our own quiet time set aside after photos for just my husband and I with apps, our food was served early and we had time to eat it and then after all that they sent us home with sandwiches and cake!
And let's just talk about Janet, because she was our favorite person that day! Janet is the best. I need my own Janet at home now. She was there for me at every turn and she was perfect. She helped us get ready before the wedding, she assisted with pictures, and got us everywhere on time. When my bustle broke she got down on the floor and helped her sew it back together. Every time I turned around she had a diet coke for me and my husband and make sure I didn't spill anything on my dress. I took off my heels dancing and she appeared a few minutes later with my flipflops from upstairs. All and all we loved Morins, Kacey and Lisa and a big thanks to Janet!

Russell Morin catered both our wedding and our farewell brunch the following day, and did the most phenomenal job. Erica is absolutely incredible, and I felt so confident and reassured knowing she was there on the big day handling everything. She was wonderful in our meetings leading up to the wedding (full of great ideas too), and on the day everything went perfectly thanks to her. The entire staff was lovely, just a pleasure to have as part of our special day. We hosted both the wedding and the farewell brunch at my family home in Newport RI, and the Russell Morin team made sure our property was completely cleaned up and reset by the end of the night, and then again perfectly packed up following the brunch the next day. All our guests raved about the food, and the dessert table and cake were picture perfect. Erica has the most calm and reassuring energy, I just know our day wouldn't have been so perfect without her. We'll be using Morins for all of our special events after having such wonderful experiences with them. More...

We recently had Russell Morin cater our wedding at Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, Connecticut and we were completely blown away! Throughout the entire planning process, Meghan Crump was our go to planner helping us with everything from floor plans to picking our menu to last minute napkin color changes! All of our emails were always answered right away and they really worked with us to help make our vision come true! Erica Phillips was our coordinator on the day of and when we met her for our final details meeting we knew our wedding would be in great hands. The actual wedding day was a dream! I was immediately greeted by our personal attendant with wines and cheeses in the bridal suite and could not believe my eyes when I saw the ceremony and reception spaces. It was everything we had wanted and more! All of our guests still continue to tell us how amazing the food and service was at our wedding! Erica was right there with us making sure we were able to have some of our dinner and even saved us some appetizers from our cocktail hour! She helped us cut our cake and the team even packed us a late night meal to eat back at the hotel! From start to finish our experience with Russell Morin was more than we could have asked for. I would highly recommend them and would love to work with them again! More...

We were required by our venue to use Russell Morin Catering, but we weren't disappointed at all. They provided our food, rentals, and an event coordinator. Everything was great day of, everyone loved the food choices, and we even got to eat thanks to the fact they provide you with a personal butler for the duration of the event!

We worked with Courtney for our wedding and she was always very responsive and was willing to try to make anything we wanted work. We wanted pie for dessert instead of a wedding cake, but didn't like the options they had for serving it. We were happy that she was willing to work with us to find an option that we liked better.

Courtney also helped us run through the ceremony at the rehearsal and was our day-of coordinator as well. It was so nice having here there and really made us feel at ease. We may have not got the choose the, but we are so glad we ended up with them!

Where do I start? Professional, organized, responsive, reassuring, absolutely outstanding! Russell Morin's team went above and beyond to make our wedding day seamless. I reached out to RM and after meeting with one other caterer it was obvious that RM was the best choice. I worked with Amy Norton and she was THE BEST. At the tasting we were able to try everything that Amy had described and it was even better than I imagined. We chose the Stuffed Chicken (so good) the Short Rib (could cut it with a spoon) and the mushroom ravioli for vegetarians. We had the clambakes with clam chowder shooters, chicken and waffles, scalloped and bacon, mini burgers (SO good), and pepperoni pizza (my husband's favorite). All of the tables entrees were served at the same time, and with such great presentation. My husband and I had a personal attendant from RM-Janet. Before our cocktail hour began Janet asked if we would like to sit down and enjoy our hors d'oeuvres before our cocktail hour. We sat there for maybe 10-15 minutes before our reception started, just the two of us, and ate a plate of food like we were on a private date. It was the most relaxing time of the whole day and such a small suggestion that made such a difference. Our drinks were refilled for us all night long without ever having to visit the bar. I actually had a problem with my gown being too long- I was tripping all over the place and Janet hemmed it for me in 10 minutes-literally just cut off about 3 inches of it. All of the details I took so much time planning out were set up beautifully. Everything went so smoothly because of the professionals that ran our wedding day. The day after our wedding we couldn't stop talking about how happy we were with the service and food we received from RM. If you are lucky enough to get Amy Norton assigned to your wedding just know you are in the best hands-and Janet will go above and beyond for you on your big day. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! More...

Russell Morin surpassed all of our expectations, as well as those of our guests! From the very first (delicious!) tasting in their gorgeous space to the last minute of ushering us out to our car post wedding, Allie went above and beyond to ensure that everything was handled with attention to detail. Allie and the entire staff were FABULOUS!! When a few minor snafus arose over the flowers, Allie handled it without injecting any stress into the day. When the bride spaced on getting marriage license signed, Allie came to the rescue. Granny needs help getting to the ladies room? The Russell Morin team assisted her with grace and care. They put love into their work and it shows. And the FOOD! As a foodie, I have high standards. I also have a severe food allergy and Allie did more than enough to accommodate me and ensure I was fed well. The food is clean, flawlessly presented, and full of flavor. RM is light years ahead of other caterers I've tasted. THANK YOU Allie and RM for making the day perfect for us in every way! Truly, without such a wonderful team it would not have been so smooth and effortless. Allie allowed me to have FUN, eat at my own wedding, and be in the present moment. Thanks again! More...

My advice to anyone considering Morins, would be to hire them unequivocally! My daughter had a destination wedding at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport. We didnt know anyone there. I interviewed with their director, Kathleen Geasey, and I looked no further.. Kathleen is the ultimate professional with excellent knowledge, impeccable taste, and a warm and welcoming personality. We love her!! She helped us with everything, from florists, to entertainment, to transportation, etc. The food was exquisite, and the service Russell Morins provided, was outstanding. Not only did they cater the wedding, but the rehearsal dinner, as well....Both events turned out fantastic...Thanks to Kathleen, my daughter was able to have the fairy tale wedding of her dreams...

We hired Russell Morin to cater our wedding (260pp @ Fort Adams in Newport RI) last fall. We worked with Erica throughout, who was an absolute ALL STAR. She was so exceptionally helpful getting everything in order for the entirety of our wedding, and was incredibly organized with every little detail we wanted to put in motion. As far as the food goes, everything RM served was exceptional... all of our guests were raving about the food throughout the entire night. These guys are the best in the business in Rhode Island, book without question. More...

We checked out the farmer's market and walking trails. Lovely property, small but lively indoor market- It was early April, so offerings are sure to grow in season, but there were a few people selling prepared food and drinks, and crafts. Fresh local seafood was also available, had we traveled with a cooler, I would've been all over that. Trails were nice, but we didn't notice a trail map- That might've been nice to find, but it's pretty hard to lose your bearings there. More...

We had the pleasure of working with Russell Morin's Catering and Events and Event Manager, Bethany for our wedding at the New Bedford Whaling Museum this past August 2016. We are so grateful for the patience, professionalism, and responsiveness showed by Bethany, our previous event managers with the Museum who helped with initial planning, and the Morin's staff who contributed to our special day. Bethany walked us through menu choices and was so receptive to our ideas for bar customizations and decorations. She took our ideas and vision and implemented them in the reception space with perfection. The food and bar service was top-notch; our guests raved on for days long after! The service was excellent. We could have not asked for a better group of professionals to work with. It would be a mistake not to work with Russell Morin's Catering and their hard-working staff and event managers for your special day! Russell Morin's and Bethany, thank you for making the day so memorable for us. More...

After we selected our venue (Roger William Botanical Center) we saw the list of the caterers we had to choose from and it was a no brainer to have Russell Morin for our wedding. I did have inside knowledge working in the wedding industry and always loved the food put out by RM and working with them for various events. I knew they would do a fantastic job, but what they did blew us away!

We worked with Meghan Crump, who was fantastic. She handled all our emails of questions and clarifications and requests with ease and professionalism. After our tasting at Rhodes both sets of parents were blown away by all the options. And while they weighed their options we had final say.

Leading up to the wedding I was able to finalize everything with Meghan and she was also in contact with Rentals Unlimited who handled all our rental needs for the day. I dropped off the minimal décor to be set up (favors, guest book, photos for gift table) and it was all set up beautifully! The day of I was not the least bit concerned about the food. I was even able to drop off our favorite beer just for us to enjoy!

Meghan and the staff we had for our wedding were INCREDIBLE. They were so attentive to us the entire evening, even reaching out to our wedding party, specifically our parents to make sure everything was ok.

Our guests still cannot stop talking about how AMAZING the food was. I have had guests dreaming about the lobster rolls and another guest told me they went and complimented the chef that night for the best sea bass he has ever had!

Thank you for everything and exceeding our expectations! I highly recommend RM if you are looking for top notch professional with delicious food to match.

We were married on 10/15/16 at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol RI where Russell Morin’s is the exclusive caterer. Russell Morin’s was AMAZING!!! People are still telling us how the food was the best they ever had and that the Sangria was to die for!! People loved our mini fish and chips appetizer and chicken and waffles appetizer! They had the most unique and tasty options, no boring scallops wrapped in bacon for us they had so many fun options! We kept an autumn theme and had the autumn chicken which was so delicious as well as the steak!
We are so happy with out experience with Russell Morin an Mount Hope farm.
Casey and her Russell Morin’s staff were so responsive and helpful from our first meeting to the day of everything was so professional and responsive no matter how many emails I sent!! Casey took all of our ideas and decor and made our dream reception with little direction from us she just knew how to make everything look amazing even our candy bar! On the day of the wedding, she made sure that we were being taken care of. with our own butler and we ate before our guests. One of the BEST parts was a doggie bag we took to our hotel which Russell Morin's gave us sandwiches, a cookie and chips and water to eat when we got back to the hotel it was a savior! we were starving after all that dancing! Thank you to their amazing team for making our day so special! Everything was perfect!

After meeting with a few vendors we selected Russell Morin to cater our wedding at Roger Williams Casino. I cannot thank Morin's staff enough for what a wonderful job they did to make our wedding day a success. Amy & Arianna were very responsive and supportive with any questions or requests that I had. The day of Arianna helped eliminate so much stress and handled everything that was thrown at her with a smile on her face.

After booking with Morin we were invited to a tasting event at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet and all the food was absolutely amazing! We were able to try everything from the different chicken, beef, fish and vegetarian options along with the different cakes, sweets and apps. We even had the chance to sample the wines. The food was absolutely amazing and the food at our wedding was just as amazing! Thank you for making our wedding everything we dreamed of!

We were married at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol RI where Russell Morin’s is the exclusive caterer. We were happy with this as the experience we had with Russell Morin’s was FANTASTIC!!
The food catered by RM was amazing. Our guests are complimenting about it to us weeks after our event! Being from New England, we wanted seafood options that were local, and Russell Morin’s delivered! We had passed appetizers of scallops, clam chowder with a clam cake, and an entrée of Cod stuffed with lobster. The non-seafood options were amazing as well between brisket sliders, green salsa chicken taquitos, mini mac and cheese muffins, and short ribs for the entrée.
Russell Morin’s also had an interesting idea for desserts that we had never seen at a wedding before. They had passed desserts that we chose mini crème brulees, cookies with a shot of milk, and apple pie spoons. This allowed our guests to eat them while on the dance floor so they did not have to leave! We cannot recommend this enough!
Courtney and her Russell Morin’s staff were fantastic to work with. From the initial meetings, to the food tasting, to preparing the final menu, they were able to cater to us and our needs as well as make the process easy. On the day of the wedding, the staff made us feel at home and made sure that we were being taken care of. They made sure that we ate during the reception (you spend all that time planning the food, you want to make sure that you eat it!) as well as ensuring that we didn’t have empty glasses.
We cannot thank Courtney and the Russell Morin’s staff enough for making our wedding a special day!

Russell Morin caters for Mount Hope Farm where we had our wedding ceremony and reception. Our coordinator started out as Alicia, who was very helpful, but then after a couple months of working with her she left the company. Then we had Lynell, who was an absolute joy to work with, but she soon passed us on to another coordinator because she got a promotion. Don't get us wrong, we're happy that Lynell got a promotion because she is excellent...we only just wished we didn't have to go through 3 coordinators to plan a wedding in 6 months. Courtney was the coordinator to finish things up with us and she was a doll. She seems young and maybe not as seasoned as Lynell, but she was able to answer all of our questions and work everything out for us. We were getting updated estimates every week it seemed as planning was narrowing down. Unfortunately, we had some confusing/misleading information regarding rental and caterer cost columns. However, we think all that is being worked on to simplify cost estimates because we were not the only couples having the confusion. The tasting in Attleboro was so much fun and the food was simply divine. All of our guests raved about the hors'devours and dinner. Something as simple as passing out iced tea and cucumber water as our guests arrived for the ceremony was a really nice touch. Throughout the day/evening Courtney guided us through the timeline of events. Since we had a lot of our own decorations she was a trooper at helping us set everything up to exactly how we wanted. She and Lynell ended up allowing us to have extra time at the end of the night. Our personal butler, Janet, was simply amazing. She was at our beckon call and, boy, did we love our "to-go" meals/snacks she put together at the end of the night. All the waitstaff and RM employees were very pleasant. They worked efficiently and fast throughout the whole night. More...

Russell Morin was the exclusive caterer for the venue we picked, so we did not have a choice in the matter, but they provided fantastic service! The only thing that bothered me was that there are only a few tastings available, so my husband and I flew halfway across the country to make it to one, picked out everything we loved, and were presented with a quote of almost double our original estimate. Turns out, virtually every item offered at the tasting was an upgrade from the basic package. All of them. We probably should have assumed that, but it made for a stressful few days of going back and choosing all of the appetizers, main courses and desserts again to get back to our budget. Particularly where the minimum is on the high side (12K, no matter the wedding size), we were not interested in spending a ton more.
Once we got that worked out, though, everything went very smoothly! People absolutely raved about the food- several people told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had. More people were so blown away by the cocktail hour that they asked if we were sure that the appetizers weren't dinner. The cake designer they offer worked with us to help design the cake, and Bethany, the planner we worked with, was incredibly patient with me as I hemmed and hawed. All in all, it was on the expensive side, but worth it for the service they provided.

We only considered one caterer, Morin’s, for our Portsmouth, RI wedding. We based this decision on their reputation. Morin’s food quality, ingredients and beautiful presentation stand out among weddings. They had a vast amount of options and were very flexible with personalizing our menu! Additionally, Morin’s has a classy service. They have so many nice touches like drinks served before the ceremony, truffles distributed at the end of the night and take home snacks for the bride and groom. We were so happy with the results!

Our coordinator was Meghan C. She was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the process!!! She really went above and beyond the role of catering coordinator, and we were continually impressed by her responsiveness, attention to detail and reliability. We sincerely appreciated her friendliness and suggestions relating not only food, but all aspects of our wedding. She truly stood out to us as the most organized and helpful vendor we had. We would highly recommend her!

On the wedding day itself, we were completely relaxed and didn’t worry about the schedule, in part because we knew we could rely on Meghan to run a tight ship, and she did! Our families were impressed with her too! Ours was the only wedding we’ve been to that seemed to run on time. Our goal was a 2.5 hour dance party, and she accomplished that! Our day couldn’t have been more perfect.

We heard a lot of great feedback on the food from our guests. Many said that the food often isn’t good at weddings, and they were impressed with ours! We enjoyed everything but truthfully felt it wasn’t as outstanding as our personal tasting. However, we understood that cooking for 90 people is very different than for 2. Our guests wouldn’t have known the difference.

We would highly recommend Russell Morin Catering!

From our initial meeting until our good byes at the end of our wedding 9 months later, they were all responsive, detail oriented, organized, professional, and patient. The service and food options and quality were excellent. Highly recommend if you are needing a full service caterer. More...

We picked the New Bedford Whaling museum as a great venue to show off some of the best features of our hometown. The museum happens to have an exclusive working relationship with Russell Morin Catering, we made that decision a lot easier. While we had a bit of a rocky start with some changes in staffing, we really enjoyed working with Bethany. She was warm and very organized which helped us get everything in order for the big day. We knew the food would be great from the moment we stepped into the grand tasting. We could not have asked for a better team between Russell Morin Catering and the Whaling Museum staff. Our guests continue to comment on the quality of the food and the amazing custom whale cake that Emily designed for us. We and our guests had an excellent time and would highly recommend this caterer to those looking for an organized, professional catering service with delicious food and dessert options. More...

As the busy bride and groom, it was awesome to have a personal butler, making sure we had food and drinks throughout the evening. We would recommend Russell Morin to anyone in Southern New England.

RM was Professional, flexible (which is great for out of staters like myself), responded very quickly, and of course incredible food for an amazing value. Our event coordinator was Erica; amazing is an understatement. Everyone knows that planning a wedding can be stressful but I felt completely at ease working with her. I knew if anything went wrong she would 100% take care of it. She truly cares about her clients and her work. She is the absolute best, I wish I could work with her everyday. You will NOT regret working with this company. They go above and beyond for their clients. More...

Such professionals and so kind. All the staff we worked with - Courtney, Lynell, Alicia - were responsive, kind, funny, and easy to work with. We booked with one of their exclusive venues so they basically double as a day of coordinator. They know how to run events at this venue and therefore everything, including our long planning process, was incredibly smooth. They had great advice on what works and doesn't work in the space, but aren't pushy with their ideas. They handled rowdy family members, someone fainting, organizing packing up all of our decor, coordinating all the vendors, and patiently responding to tons of emails from us over many months. All with grace.

Morin's food was outstanding. All of the guests were beyond impressed. Morin's kindly brought us our own plate of appetizers so we got to enjoy everything. Service staff was also incredibly nice and made the experience pleasant. Morin's also allows you to purchase your own alcohol, which saved us a bundle. Thank you Morins!

Russell Morin was the caterer for my 170 guests wedding . From our first meeting, it was obvious they were going to be our choice. Every question was answered, every email promptly responded to, every panicked note was immediately calmed. Once our menu was narrowed down, the tasting was amazing. First of all, my mom was able to join us without any additional charge (I've heard that is not always the case with other vendors). Second of all, we were able to make adjustments to the items we selected based on our tastes. When our schedules made it impossible to get up to Newport for a finalization of details, our coordinator, Erica Phillips had a conference call with us and chatted for over an hour so that we were 100% comfortable with every loose end (they also seamlessly sourced all our rentals for us, including bathrooms, dance floor, etc).
The day of, when we arrived at our reception (Jonathan Edwards Winery), and Erica brought us to see the tent, I immediately started to cry. It was stunning. Everything was perfectly arranged exactly as I imagined it. It felt like there were a million staff members hustling around and every time I turned around, I was being offered something by our personal butler (Anne). The food was outstanding and at least a dozen friends and family have confirmed that over the last two weeks. Anne made sure we had a plate of hors d' oeuvres waiting at our sweetheart table just in case there was something we didn't try and they timed our entrees perfectly (we sat down later than everyone else). The late night snacks totally hit the spot as the party winded down & literally everything (including the DIY table numbers & my delicate antique cake topper) was packed up for us to be taken home without be asked. I only wish Erica could plan every aspect of my life! I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again! Worth every penny!

Working with Russell Morin at the Providence Public Library was one of the best decisions we could have made in our wedding planning. Our wedding was absolutely amazing, thanks in a big part to the wonderful staff, service, food and drink that Morin's provided. We initially met Lizzy to speak about the venue/catering and we immediately clicked with her - she is a rockstar and so good at her job, and we remain in contact with her months after our wedding has passed. Working with Ali and Lisa was also an amazing pleasure, and Lisa made the day of our wedding SO much fun. A couple moments to point out: when we were sitting upstairs after the ceremony, Lisa pulled out her phone and snapped a pic of us with our feet up, enjoying a beverage, proclaiming we just HAD to have that photo. It remains one of our very favorite pictures from the day! She also ensured that we always had drinks in our hands, and even called numerous places to see if they were open when our original after-party idea fell apart. She went above and beyond to make the day memorable, fun, and stress free, and a huge thanks goes out to Lisa for everything she did. Ali was also wonderful the day of the wedding, taking serious control over the fact that there was a Verizon strike happening just outside the library. She went outside and pleaded with them to please stop chanting between 5-5:30pm for our ceremony, and they did not just agree, but also cheered for us when we came outside after the wedding. She also worked very hard to get us into the stacks of the library, allowing our photographer to take the most interesting, unique photos. Thank you, Ali! We appreciated that SO very much.

While the PPL is gorgeous, amazing food and drink were a huge priority to us and Morin's provided that. The open bar ran smoothly the entire night, the food was delish, and all recommended outside vendors were perfect. THANK YOU to Morin's for making our day perfect!

Russell Morin was our vendor at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. They have a lot of variety, and were willing to work with us despite us planning the wedding from across the country. We didn't even get to try the food before the wedding, and worked solely off of reputation. We're so glad we listened. People still reach out to me to tell me how good the food was. They absolutely nailed the food and the whole day. I would recommend them in a second. More...

We couldn't have asked for a better catering company, and Erica, our coordinator, was amazing to work with - from picking out the appetizers and desserts to planning the bar to finalize the dinner options and table decor. The one thing that was a major surprise was when we chose Russell Morin, Erica not only acted as our catering coordinator but also as our event coordinator. She was an absolutely amazing person to work with. And the food...well...it was AMAZING. Several of our guests felt like they were out to eat at a fancy restaurant and that their dish was one of five, not one of one hundred. Everything was superb and the presentation was beautiful. If you are looking for classic elegance for your catering, look no further than Russell Morin's, and if you are lucky enough to be getting married in Aquidneck Island, definitely ask for Erica. She helped make our fairy tale wedding a reality! More...

My husband and I had a great experience with Russell Morin Fine Catering for our wedding. We cannot say enough great things about their food and their staff. We received so many compliments on the food, especially the chowder with clam cake appetizer that we served at cocktail hour. I still have guests tell me it was the best wedding food they have ever had and it has been a few months. They also made our wedding cake (which was delicious!), and they matched every detail we asked for. We worked with Jessica, who went above and beyond to help make out wedding day run smoothly. She was always professional and very prompt with answering any e-mails/questions we had throughout the planning process. Among many things to think about, she laid out each decor item we had purchased for the venue beautifully and our tables looked perfect. We were very happy with the entire day and we know a big portion of it was because of Jessica/Russell Morin’s hard work. More...

Wow so what can I say, people are still RAVING about the food (two months later!!) You need to understand that my chef uncle is NEVER satisfied but even he was telling me how good the food was!! Everyone involved was patient, professional and so on point the day off I thought I was dreaming! The TWO REASONS I GAVE 4.5 STARS for quality of service were:

- We requested all sauce on the side and they forgot (not the end of the world but the people who asked me for that were bummed)

- Our favors were personalized for each guest and got messed up, so almost no one got the right ones. This totally could have been OUR FAULT in the setup directions… but I wish someone noticed and asked!

Beyond those really small details our day of absolutely out of this world and mostly thanks to Russel Morin’s and their great staff!!

Where to start? Morins was the highlight of my wedding. I visited three caterers and I knew, upon meeting Amy at Morins, that Morins would cater my wedding. Amy and I'd had a brief phone call before the visit and when I showed up, she had a tailored proposal that in which she'd put together a potential menu based on all the things we'd spoken about over the phone. Being listened to in that way made me feel valued.

Amy was the perfect "yes" woman. I had budget issues, she worked with me, I wanted to mix menus, she worked with me. I was late to meetings: she worked with me! Each change I requested was met with a new written proposal.

And can we talk about the food? People were RAVING. Everything (especially the cake!) was so delicious, beautifully presented... Morin's acted more like my wedding coordinator than my caterer. They took care of EVERY TINY DETAIL. They turned a good wedding into a phenomenal wedding. MY family members are currently trying to figure out if they can go to Morin's to pick up weekly dinners - the food was so good.

I could not recommend Morin's more. If I ever have an event catered again - Morin's will cater it (and I'll ask for Amy!).

I had my wedding at the Providence Public Library and Russell Morin is the exclusive Caterer of the venue. It was AMAZING! The food was delicious, cooked perfectly day-of, and even better than the tasting. We had Filet and Swordfish and both were cooked so well-- you would never know they made over 100 plates! I truly enjoyed working with them and would highly recommend Russell Morin for any event or Wedding. They truly are top notch. More...

Picking Russell Morin as our caterer was probably the easiest decision, and the best one! From the beginning we worked with Meghan to design our menu, answer questions, etc. Since we were the first one out of our friends and our family to get married recently, we had a lot of questions. Meghan was there to answer every single one, even if they were pretty silly, basic questions. She took the time to make many iterations to our menu.

Once we go to the tasting, you know you made the right call on the food. We brought our best man and maid of honor with us and they both couldn't get enough! I have to say that RM knocks it out of the park with their appetizers. You can't go wrong picking one and its hard to pick just 5! The biggest hit at our wedding was the chicken and waffles. For the entree, we picked fish and steak. Although the fish was great, I think everyone loved the steak. It was perfectly cooked which is hard feat. To have a steak cooked perfectly for a large event is quite a feat. We opted for cupcakes instead of cake for our wedding. At the tasting I was underwhelmed by the cupcakes but all the guests RAVED about them. My dad who doesn't really like desserts had 2 and was holding back getting a third. The other amazing piece is that we had one guest who was gluten and dairy free. I had told her that we could probably give her steak with just veggies and omit the mashed potatoes. Well RM didn't like that idea and made roast potatoes just for her! I was so impressed!

For the coordination, it was amazing. Alana was our day of coordinator and she helped coordinate everything. We didn't expect to have her do the ceremony, but she did! She managed the intros, the vendors, etc. We had our own personal waiter who was constantly asking if we wanted anything to drink.

The price was similar to other caterers but you get so much more, book them today!

From start to finish our wedding planning process went so smoothly in part to Russell Morin’s Fine Catering. We chose Morin’s after using them for another event, and attending one of their weddings that was run so flawlessly. Not only were both events coordinated perfectly, but more importantly the food was incredible. Morin’s was hands down the top choice for our wedding, and they did NOT disappoint.

Meghan Crump, our wedding coordinator, worked with us through the entire process. From the event proposal to the reception, Meghan’s attention to detail and expertise made our day even more special than we could have ever imagined. She made the process easy by quickly responding to emails, reaching out to our vendors, and helping us work through the timing of our entire wedding day. Meghan even helped us to schedule the pick-up and drop-off times for the shuttles that went to and from the hotel our guests were staying at. Neither Mike nor I could imagine our day without Meghan!

Having attended events that Morin’s had catered in the past, we had high expectations for our food. THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Our guests are still raving about all of the hors d’oeuvres, and they cannot stop talking about the delicious short ribs! We continue to hear that the food was the best wedding food!

Thank you for making our day so special!

We had our wedding in September and one of the hiccups that we experienced was our caterer going out of business. It was a nightmare because we loved the food and the girl we were working with. However, I contacted Erica from Russell Morin and she was right there to answer all of my questions. She went above and beyond for us from the first meeting all the way to the night of our wedding. I can't say enough about how organized she was and how helpful she was with suggestions when we had no idea what to do. The person who managed my venue was very hard to get ahold of and was far from helpful with answering questions, but Erica was right there to answer my questions and ease my mind during the stressful time. She coordinated everything the night of the wedding so I didn't have to worry about a thing. The best part was that her and the staff would find me or my husband in the crowd to feed us appetizers and drinks if we needed them. I never went hungry. I even got one of my mouse martinis made and brought to my table for me along with my late night snack. Everything was perfect! I can't thank them enough for saving my wedding and for making is a stress free process!! More...

Megan was our day of coordinator and helped with the flow of events from the beginning to end of the night. When my wife and I were shopping around for a catering company we looked no further than Russell Morin's. They were highly recommended to us by both our venue and friends/family. They will customize your event any way you ask them to and I would without a doubt refer them to anyone that asks!

We used Russell Morin for our wedding at Mount Hope Farm in early September. My husband and I couldn't be happier with how our wedding reception turned out and due in large part to Russell Morin. We were lucky enough to have a day of coordinator assigned to us through Russell Morin to handle all of the details leading up to the big day and then to execute everything on the actual day of. We worked with Casey and I can't sing her praises enough. We planned the wedding long distance and Casey was always available via email, phone and even Skype! She took my crazy bride ramblings and made them into a magical wedding.

All of the staff that we worked with at Russell Morin has a passion for what they are doing and it shows. My family is still raving about our bartender for that night and how friendly he was. We also had a personal server, Ben, throughout the reception. He made sure my husband and I had a chance to eat and that we always had a drink. It's these little touches that really made the night. Also, I'm still getting compliments on the all of the food! It was all so delicious!

Russell Morins is a phenomenal catering company! They know what works and what doesn't and gave great guidance to us on how to plan a somewhat non-traditional reception. After meeting with us, they put together a really well organized packet with customized options for us to pick from, which made planning relatively easy. The food options are a foodie's dream and are very reasonably priced. Our guests are still gushing over how much they liked their meals and extra goodies.

Russell Morins' site coordinators are fantastic. Our venue was a historic site so we were limited in what we could do for decorations. But that didn't stop us from getting creative! Our contacts at Morins patiently helped us to find a way to make our design work and the end result was stunning. Beyond that, their other staff are incredibly professional and made the whole day go off without a hitch. In fact, everything was so seamless, I didn't even notice that people had come in to clean off tables and move furniture after dinner until I looked back at the pictures and noticed that things had moved!

I can't think of a single thing that I would have changed about the wedding. It was absolutely perfect, in large part due to the coordination and guidance from our contacts at Russell Morins. We're very appreciative to have had them as a part of our special day!

Russell Morin and Jessica did an outstanding job coordinating my daughter's wedding at Shining Tides. Russell Morin Catering did a fabulous job from the food & drink right down to every last detail. Our guests raved about the venue and the food.

The organization and attention to detail that they provided certainly put everyone at ease during the planning process and particularly on the wedding day. Jessica put everything together just how we envisioned it. There was not one thing that we would change. I would definitely recommend both the Shining Tides (and Elizabeth) and Russell Morin Catering. Thank you Jessica the wedding was perfect and it was so nice to know that every detail was taken care of so we could enjoy the night.

Russell Morin was everything I could have possibly asked for in a caterer. We worked with Meghan Crump, who is possibly one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She was so helpful and responsive in the planning process and always had a quick answer to any question I asked. I feel incredibly lucky that she was also our day-of coordinator because she was everything we could have asked for - calm, friendly, attentive, reassuring. All the staff was equally professional and helpful. We took a bit of a leap of faith in choosing Russell Morin without tasting their food first, but the reviews were all spot on - the food was delicious and many of the guests commented on how good it was. The presentation was also top-quality, they made my wedding look beautiful. I'm not going to say that it was cheap but given the high prices in the wedding industry I think that Russell Morin provides great value. Before choosing them as a caterer we also got a quote from a Boston-based caterer whose estimate was 50% higher than Morin's for the same level of service. Truly I believe that you cannot go wrong in choosing Russell Morin for your wedding. More...

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jessica for our wedding. Jessica made the planning process a joy, she was incredibly knowledgeable, flexible, and patient with all of our ideas, questions, and concerns. She helped us cover everything from the menu to making sure our lawn games were delivered to the venue. She added a personal touch to every detail of our wedding. On the big day the staff was absolutely wonderful and things could not have gone more perfectly. Our guests all LOVED the food and commented over and over about how fantastic the service was. Our DJ even made a point to tell me that when he got pulled away from his meal to deal with song requests/announcements the catering team warmed up his meal to keep it fresh for him. He said that has never happened at a wedding before and could not believe the staff took enough care to do this for him. I have recommended Jessica and the Russell Morin team to any couple I know that is getting married. Their quality and level of service are truly spectacular. More...

Friends and family constantly mentioned the deliciousness of all the dishes!
The wedding coordinator was kind, understanding, flexible and just adorable.

Russell Morin's Catering for made our August 8th wedding absolutely perfect. Food was first on our list of priorities for an awesome wedding - and Morin's was our first vendor booked (aside from venue). All of our guests commented on the delectable food and superlative service. We worked with Erica - who really took the stresses of planning a wedding off of our plates (and replaced it with lobster ravioli)! :)

During the planning process, Erica was well-prepared and was able to answer all of our questions. Almost all of the other vendors we hired were based on Erica's recommendations. She worked seamlessly with our florist, both in the months leading up to the wedding and on the day itself, to transform our venue into something out of a fairytale.

Erica was extremely responsive to emails and always worked with our schedule for calls and meetings and tastings. She always made us feel like her number one priority.

Erica made sure that we did not have to worry about anything during our wedding day. We did not have to answer any questions, remind anyone about the timeline, or worry about the wedding events. She took care of it all, and she even assisted me in putting on/taking off my bridal wrap! Each part of the day unfolded exactly as we had planned, since Erica was working constantly behind the scenes to make it happen.

Easily the best decision we made for our day: Russell Morin's!

We had the distinct pleasure of working with Amy as our coordinator. Throughout the entire process she was super helpful and responsive to any questions we had, and was quick to come up with a quote for any rentals we thought we might like to add on. Our wedding day was so perfect thanks in large part to Amy and the Morin's team. We had requested particular alcohol as part of our bar, and when it was found that that alcohol was forgotten, someone was sent from our venue in southern RI all the way to Attleboro MA to complete our bar! The level of detail and customer service was spectacular! The food was absolutely amazing, all of our guests were raving about everything from the passed hors d'oeuvres to the dinner and dessert! Any hiccup we encountered on the day of the wedding, Amy was sure to ease our minds and it was taken care of.

I would recommend Russell Morin to ANYONE. They went above and beyond with every single detail of our day, I can't imagine getting through this process without them. They did everything possible to help us stay in our budget but still serve our guests fantastic food (which people are still raving about) and our day of coordinator Erica was a GODSEND!

The only downside was the cake. It took us three tastings until the cake chef got close to what we wanted, and then the cake we received for the wedding was completely different from what we ordered! It looked absolutely nothing like what we had discussed, but it ended up being delicious anyway so I couldn't have cared less! If that's a sticking point for you, I'd recommend getting your cake elsewhere.

Otherwise, you cannot beat Russell Morin. They are exceptional.

Our wedding hasn't happened yet, but we've been through the process (all except the final meeting) and tasting with Russell Morin, and I couldn't be happier so far! They were the required caterer for our venue and I was worried about that, of course, but they have allayed any fears I may have had. Everyone I've been in contact with has been super professional, and really know what they're doing. Any time I've had a question (which, admittedly, has been a lot of the time!), they are more than happy to answer it, and it's clear they all know their business. We also wanted a couple special touches, and they were more than accommodating. Oh - and the food - if it's 1/2 as good as what we tried at the tasting, it'll be the best food anyone's had in a while (and not just for the category of wedding/event food!). I have utmost trust in our coordinator, and can't wait for the wedding! More...

We were lucky to have Russell Morin as our caterer and have Meghan and her crew help and guide us through the process. From the beginning they were very responsive and helpful in picking out what we wanted. We only knew one thing we wanted in the beginning and were provided excellent guidance to make the awesome choices that we had. We made it clear that we wanted to have food that was hot and that would meet many people's needs and boy did the food do just that! Every table we went to raved about how delicious the food was and how many options there were. We made sure that we sat down and ate some of the most scrumptious food that we had been dreaming about since our tasting. The day went so smoothly anytime we needed help or had a question someone was right there fixing it or had already fixed it. They made the flow of the day a no worry situation. It was wonderful to have the three different stations because people had money choices for food or they could sample a little of everything. The food was fresh hot and delicious. The servers were very helpful answering questions about the options and everything was cleaned up very quickly. Everyone had plenty of food and loved it! Russell Morin helped to make our day wonderful and we are so appreciative. More...

My friend told me that she has never been to a wedding that has run so seamlessly. I think this is largely due to the incredibly professional, thoughtful and talented staff at Russell Morin. I had no idea how important a good caterer is until the month leading up to the wedding, and particularly on the day of. The coordinators at Morins have it down to a science, know all the right questions to ask, gave me great ideas and suggestions, and were extremely accommodating of any of my requests. The wait staff was instructed to serve the entrees during one of our toasts, and they were barely noticeable as they moved around the room. My day of coordinator, Amy, was really cheery and made sure that all the little details worked out how I'd asked. I didn't have a wedding planner, and I had never really thought about who would do some of these things (put the escort cards on the display, put the thank yous on the table, set up the guest book), and I don't think all caterers pay the level of care and attention to these details that Russell Morins did for my wedding. It was impeccable.

And now the food. My cousin told me she had been looking forward to the food at our wedding because I love food so much, she knew it would be great. And it was incredible. We had a near impossible time narrowing down what we wanted when we went for the tasting, because it was all delicious. Hors D'ouevres: the fish and chips cone is tasty and presented in such a fun and whimsical way, and the pulled pork on a sweet potato was out of this world. Entrees: the autumn chicken got rave reviews, and the cheesy polenta was a huge hit. My guests commented on how unique the passed dessert of the cookie and ice cream was. The food definitely was a highlight of our wedding, and something my husband and I will certainly remember for a while. I am recommending Russell Morin to all friends getting married in the area, because I really want to get a chance to eat their food again!

I cannot even begin to explain how lovely it was to work with Arolin and Jessica for my wedding a few weeks back. My husband and I were married at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and Russell Morin works exclusively as their caterer. A friend was married at the Stonehouse a few years back and Morin's did her wedding so I knew what we were getting, amazing food and service!

Arolin was so easy to work with and made me feel as though no question was a dumb one (I'm sure I asked her many). She responded promptly to all emails, and had a cool calm manner about her. She is the BEST and I hope that Russell Morin knows this!

The day of the wedding Arolin was unable to stay the whole event so Jessica took her place for the day. Jessica was also just as great, and made sure that our families had everything they needed. She is truly a sweetheart and great at her job!

Our friends and family cannot stop raving about the food! Usually wedding food is subpar, but Russell Morin will never fall into that category!

If I could give Russell Morin 10 stars, I would. From start to finish, Morin's staff was just amazing and I would recommend them without hesitation. We had the good fortune to work with Erin all the way through our planning process and on our wedding day. She was so responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful. I feel like we had a lot of questions, but Erin was always very patient and always had a quick response for us. We had a wonderful tasting, but wondered if the food would be of the same quality when cooked for 140. We had nothing to worry about. If possible, I thought our food on our wedding night was even more delicious than when we tried it at the tasting! We had rave reviews on everything from service to appetizers to entrees. It is also worth noting that we had a variety of allergies and special diets to deal with, but Erin and the rest of the team were totally on top of it. Everything was very well-labeled and they were so accommodating, making the necessary tweaks to dishes and offering alternatives for those that might not be able to enjoy the main menu. Aside from the food, we were so impressed with how seamlessly the night came together. The venue looked truly amazing and everything was set up perfectly. Russell Morin's really nailed every detail. I would use them again in a heartbeat! More...

Ultimately I had a really great experience with RM. I had an outdoor wedding that required last minute changes due to rain and the day-of coordinator, Aaron Messina and the staff were incredibly helpful in making everything run so smoothly with all of the changes. On the day, the staff was so professional, attentive, and I was able to really enjoy myself knowing they had everything taken care of.
All night guests raved about the food from the appetizers to the entrees. RM was also very flexible with my requests to provide a lot of food ourselves since we have food and liquor wholesale connections and family members who contributed cake and desserts.

My rating is less than 5 stars only because leading up to the event I was assigned to 4 different people. I didn't meet Aaron until a month or so before our event and I felt a little uneasy switching so late since I had already gone through so much of the process with 3 others in the past year. That being said, I couldn't have been happier with Aaron and would go through the process of working with a handful of other people again to end up working with him on my day. Aaron was absolutely AMAZING!! He was super responsive via email and phone, he completely made up for my frustrations, showing up on Friday to confirm everything, answering endless emails, and always making me feel reassured. The event was just perfect, the service was terrific! Their services include not just catering, but a personal butler for my husband and I, and Aaron, our unbelievably awesome coordinator.
So while initially I was a little disappointed with feeling like a hot potato, I'm confident that is not usually the case, and would absolutely use them in the future. RM is a big company and they provide a lot with their services and know how to manage an event. You can rest assured you will have an unforgettable experience with RM.

They are truly spectacular! All my dreams became a reality and I owe it all to Kathleen and her crew for bringing it together. They appeased my every wish and never said anything was impossible even when my requests were seemingly outrageous. I wanted a 5-Star dining experience (coming from Manhattan, presentation and flavor are paramount), and they held my hand the entire way (as I did not have a wedding planner), and made it a night that blew away all of our guests!
I am so so very appreciative and couldn't be a happier bride!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Words cannot even express how amazing Russell Morin catering was in the days leading up to and on the day of, our wedding. From the beginning they were easy-going and pleasurable to work with. Meghan was our initial coordinator and she was so patient and understanding throughout our many changes and additions. Our day of coordinator was Allie P and I cannot say enough great things about Ali! Initially I was a little apprehensive that we had changed coordinators because Ali had not yet seen our venue but she and Meghan made the trip together to meet with us on-site at the venue to go over everything two weeks prior to our wedding and having them both there really set my mind at ease. On the day of Allie and the rest of the Russell Morin crew were attentive, professional, helpful, pleasant, and AWESOME! They were more than just caterers, they were running the whole evening, and running it well! They went above and beyond in every possible way and Allie especially was so sweet and thoughtful, coming over to check in with me every so often and making sure that everything was to my liking and set up the way I wanted. I did not have to worry about a thing at all! Even the owner of the venue was commenting on how much more involved and attentive they were than some of the other caterers he works with. He even ended up sending most of his venue staff home because Russell Morin was taking care of everything! Another person that deserves a personal shout out was Melissa, our personal "butler". Melissa was so sweet, was there whenever I needed her, with a drink, appetizers, whatever we needed. She was AWESOME! And, I can't forget to mention the food .... OH MY! All night long all we kept hearing from our guests was how phenomenal everything was, from the appetizers to the entrees, to the chocolate covered strawberries and complimentary passed truffles. We knew the food was going to be great after we had our tasting but it still exceeded our expectations on the day of! More...

Russell Morin catered our wedding on 8/22/14 -- we worked together for nearly 10 months, and we could not have been happier with the whole experience. My dad had one request of the wedding -- that there be good food and a lot of it. Russell Morin delivered that and more -- not only were they a true partner in our planning, helpful from early days to the amazing staff at our wedding. Our guests were blown away by the food and the attentive, pleasant service.

They were competitive on price -- and I priced every reputable caterer in the area. While I have no doubt, all of those caterers would've done a nice job, Russell Morin went above and beyond to deliver, not just on the food and service, but they took care of so many details, right down to stocking our candy table and serving dessert and coffee to our older guests. Some of those items we provided ourselves, and they graciously took care of it all without question.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. And my sincerest and most heartfelt thanks to Arolin Hughes, our coordinator at Russell Morin -- I could not have asked for anything more!

Every morsel of food and drink that we tried from the tasting to the wedding was incredible! Their servers were professional and attentive, and they were never far with a platter of food or drinks. We chose Scallops and Delmonico Ribeye for our main courses and they were absolutely delicious, guests raved about the food afterwards! We chose a buffet of mini desserts and a small cake to cut for ourselves and every bit was wonderful. They created a custom Cucumber Margarita Cocktail for us that was so good, and again guests loved it. I worked with Alicia as my main point of contact and Event Coordinator and I can't speak highly enough of her. She was friendly and easy to work with and she took all of my DIY'd wedding ideas and made them reality. I urge you to trust her completely! She took all the weight off our shoulders and just made everything come to life. Immediately after the ceremony ended, we had drinks in our hands and hors d'oeuvres for us to snack on. At the end of the night we had to-go boxes of snacks for us to eat as we unwound from our perfect night. Thank you to everyone there! We recommend them 100%! More...

Morin is the best in the area. They are so easy to work with and made the entire process from start to finish so easy. We worked with Arolin and Jessica who were both fantastic. Beyond the service, their food is excellent. My husband and I were on somewhat of a budget and Morin has various options to choose. We went with a buffet, which in my experience at weddings can mean a lack of quality in the food. However, the food was excellent and there was never any pressure from Morin to add this or that. I have had so many people tell me that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. If you want your food done right and little hassle, Russell Morin is the way to go. More...

Erica and the catering team at Russell Morin made my rehearsal dinner at the Tennis Hall of Fame wonderful! My now husband and I hosted 75 people for our rehearsal dinner followed by welcome drinks for 150 people at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport. I was also planning the wedding and had a lot on my plate. Hiring Russell Morin was one of the best decisions I made. Erica gave me the confidence that she could organize a great event and she delivered!
The food was delicious, beautiful and creative – all of my guests were very impressed. Erica and the team at Russell Morin helped me wherever I wanted it (renting chairs and napkins, an emergency flower situation!) but were also very flexible allowing us to bring in some things we wanted, like a family favorite cake for dessert. All in all – it was a great evening and I would not hesitate to use Russell Morin again.

Russell Morin catering is INCREDIBLE!!! Their food is out of this world and their service is even better. They are more than a caterer - they are an event planner! They helped to arrange the silverware, table linens, bar, decor, etc. I was overwhelmed having to orchestrate all of the additional services but RM made it so easy! My event coordinator Kathleen was phenomenal and I could not have asked for a better liaison. She ensured that every detail was taken care of and that my husband and I wanted for nothing on the night of the wedding. She was my saving grace on my wedding day for sure! I have received endless compliments about the insanely delicious food and courteous/prompt staff. They are a premium caterer and as such the price reflects this quality, though they are happy to try and work with you to fit into your budget. You would be crazy to look anywhere else for catering!

I was married last weekend in Newport, RI and Kathleen Geasey was our coordinator. I do not have enough positive things to say about her. She functioned not only as a catering coordinator, but more as a wedding planner throughout the entire wedding planning process. I strongly believe the sole reason our wedding ran so smoothly and seamless is entirely because of Kathleen's professionalism, attention to detail and her many years of experience. The food was spectacular, every detail was planned to perfection and Kathleen ran the event with grace and a big smile. There was not a single thing we were unhappy about. I cannot recommend Russell Morin, or Kathleen, enough. More...

I have never dealt with such a courteous and accommodating vendor!! I was impressed with the service I received BEFORE the big day. Once our wedding rolled around; holy cow!! Meghan was our coordinator leadign up to our event and was so responsive and wonderful to deal wtih. Allie was our day-of coordinator and she was ON TOP of EVERYTHING! The groom and I had a cold drink in our hand once we reached the end of the ceremony recessional. When getting ready, we had drinks and appetizers. Allie was on top of it all. We chose stations for our meal and Allie served us immediately so we could eat and then mingle with guests. My uncle was celebrating a birthday and Allie kept an eye on him so we could present him with a cake before he hit the dessert table. We had vegans, gluten-free meals, heart transplant patients, allergies, you name it and their meals were taken care of discretely and professionally. Our service was phenominal, open bar was a huge success and for days guests were complimenting the food. Well done; thank you Allie, Meghan and Russell Morin! More...

We hired Russell Morin's for our daughter's wedding and can't even begin to tell you how amazing they were, the food was amazing and the staff was beyond amazing! I cannot say enough about them. We worked with Meghan who was incredibly helpful and responded back to very little question we had along the way. She was so helpful in the planning and very nice and patient. She was our day of coordinator and did a fantastic job of keeping everything moving along. It has been 3 weeks since the wedding and i have stiil been getting calls about how great the food and drinks were. So many have told us it was the best meal they ever had at a wedding! We also had them do the linens and it truly transformed the tent at Blithewold Mansion and was beyond beautiful! Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about Meghan and Russell Morin's and you will be so pleased that you hire them for your wedding, People are still calling me to say how great the hors d'ouvres and food along with the service, which was unbelievable. Our daughter and fiancé had their own personal butler who supplied them with drinks and food and made sure that they were well taken of the entire night. You will not be disappointed and they are the BEST caterers around. Do not look any further! Do yourself a favor and hire them for your wedding, you will not be disappointed ! More...

Choosing Russell Morin Fine Catering for our wedding was perhaps the best decision we made throughout the entire process. We cannot say enough great things about their staff. We worked with Kathleen, who went above and beyond expectations, offering her advice and recommendations on the table settings, sending us fabric samples and helping us come up with a detailed plan for the layout of the each decor item for the venue. She was always professional and while we knew she always had many weddings on her plate, she always made us feel as though our wedding was as important to her as it was to us. Most of our wedding was planned via email and her responses were always timely, and she frequently updated our menu proposal so that we had an accurate estimate of the cost. She was incredibly flexible in terms of scheduling, allowing us to schedule weekend meetings when needed. We were even more impressed when she were able to coordinate 2 gluten-free meals at the day of the wedding for 2 guests who had recently begun eating gluten-free.

The staff the day of the wedding was incredible. They were professional, accommodating, efficient and kind, making our guests feel like royalty. The inclusion of a personal "butler" for the bride and groom was a wonderful touch and allowed my husband and I to mingle with our guests, but still be able to eat and drink! They did a phenomenal job setting up all of the little details we provided (placecards, "guestbook" wine bottles, wedding pictures of our families). There wasn't a single detail overlooked. I was ecstatic with the results.

And most importantly, the food!! The food was delicious! We can received so many compliments on the food, especially the beef wellington and chicken saltambocca we served at cocktail hour. We chose halibut as one of our entree choices and it was delicious! We served sangria throughout the night and Boston Cream Pie martinis as a late night treat both of which have been raved about by our guests.

I have to thank Russell Morin for preparing the food at our wedding which was not only delicious, but abundant and beautifully presented. It was so sweet to watch the our wedding video and to actually see that Russell was serving food and pouring water into glasses to make sure everything was perfect for the event. The food that Russell Morin created for our wedding was absolutely delish! Everyone still raves about the macaroni and cheese station with additions, including lobster and how they were able to eat a little bit of everything when we served a Russian style dinner service. My husband and I truly have to say we loved Russell Morin Catering Company. They took our event to the next level making sure that our wedding day was the best day of our lives! More...

We had Russell Morin as our caterers for our wedding at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Arolin was our planner and she was amazing. If we did not have her we would have been lost in this whole planning part of the wedding! She was super helpful with everything and so accommodating!! She also was so quick to respond to anything we asked or needed during the planning process. The day of the wedding she ran everything to make sure our whole wedding ran smoothly. She was by my side making sure I had a full drink, had something to eat, and even gave me a cool cloth to cool down after excessive dancing on the dance floor. Oh and did I mention the food? The food was amazing!!! We had the best little appetizers from clam chowder with clam cakes to mini sliders. Dinner was amazing as well and the dinner service was on par. The bartenders were super efficient especially for our very "thirsty" guests. The only one minor complaint was during the cocktail hour. They ran out of our signature cocktail before every guest got one. Also, the wait service during the cocktail hour had a hard time circulating the crowd and some of my guests did not get any appetizers while the other side of the room ate so much they could barely eat dinner. Other than that Russell Morin was amazing and I would definitely recommend!! More...

We used Russell Morin as our caterer for our Mt. Hope Farm wedding in Bristol, RI on July 20, 2013. When researching a few caterers in the area, Russell Morin blew it's competitors away with their level of creativity they offered in their food, their promptness in responding to emails, as well as organization (they were able to create a draft menu for us even after one quick email explaining our vision). Working with Megan was an absolutely dream! She was so kind, helpful, and patient with each of the emails we sent to her, no matter how small or silly the questions in each of these emails were. My husband and I wanted to put together a healthier menu with no pasta and a greater emphasis on fresh veggies and fruit. We also wanted a family style dinner instead of a plated dinner or buffet. Russell Morin was absolutely able to accommodate our request and the food the day of was perfect. We had people tell us it was the best wedding food they have ever had! Megan was so on point the day of and everything ran along perfectly thanks to her (even when we had to move our wedding ceremony at the last minute due to rain). The biggest treat was our personal butler on the night of who constantly kept our champagne glasses full and ensured we ate our fill! Just as dozens of other vendors and brides told, you can't go wrong with Russell Morin; they are the best out there! More...

Russell Morin catered my wedding at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. The museum only works with Russell Morin, so while I didn't have a choice in hiring them, I've very glad that they were the ones to do our wedding. Meghan was our go to girl and she was amazing. She is extremely organized and always kept me on my feet. More importantly the day of the wedding, she was a dream. I didn't have to worry about a thing, and all day she kept coming over to my husband and I asking us if we needed anything. I can't imagine a wedding going more flawlessly and I know that it's mostly due to this catering company and all the hard work they put it. Thank you! More...

as a Cook myself, my standards were high when it came to finding a caterer and Russell Morin Fine Catering surpassed my expectations! Food was the Most important part of the reception to me (secondly was music!) Aarolin was very easy to work with and very responsive the staff was courteous and diligent. It was important to us that we found a caterer that could provide linens and glassware and RM did just so without hiking the price for these additional things. we chose passed Hor-Dourve's and had a plated salad and Buffet dinner. everything was cooked perfectly and my only complaint was that I thought the food could have been a little hotter (I personally Like my food "piping Hot") but I received nothing but rave reviews from guests and was relieved that everyone seemed to really enjoy the food! I would highly recommend RM to Brides on a budget, as I chose the "classic" package but they offer plenty of Gourmet and upscale dishes as well! I would definitely use them again in the future!

YUM!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly, the best wedding food I've ever had and fortunately it was my wedding! Morins was always a small dinner in my hometown, but BOY has it come a LONG way!!!!!!! They catered my wedding on 100 people with a stations buffet (surf & turf and pasta bar). The food was delicious, well presented and just all around wonderful. We looked at 4 vendors and Morins was the best price and yet the food options were the most extensive and interesting. The appetizers were to die for. Everyone is still talking about the duck diablo and mini clam chowder and clam cakes. I loved my coordinator and the servers were professional and smiling the whole time (even though it was hot and they drove 1.5 hours to get there). I would without a moment of hesitation recommend them to any bride that wants one less thing to worry about. More...

This catering company was very professional and the food was great. The staff was not only attentive to my and my groom, but to each guest. The plate of appetizers for the bridge and groom was a great touch. My only complaints were that our wedding planner was hard to reach and somewhat inflexible with my requests.

We chose Russel Morins as our caterer for our wedding day and we are extremely happy that we did! We were very picky in selecting a caterer for our wedding because we had a fairly large guest count (300+) and wanted to be sure the caterer would be able to deliver good quality food that was actually hot (and not reheated). Not to mention the added stress of finding a caterer that could deliver this service in a venue that did not offer a FULL kitchen... I was very nervous after meeting with many different caterers and hearing about how they planned on serving our guests hot food when there wasn't access to a full kitchen. But after meeting with Russel Morins, I had no fear that they couldn't deliver & I was right! Although they were a bit more expensive then other caterers, but not the most expensive, the food was one of the most important decisions for our wedding and you get what you pay for. And looking back, it was well worth the money spent! From the cocktail our hors d'oerves to the desert display, our guests were beyond full! We were thrilled to hear such great reviews from our guests on how delicious the food was and how they did not leave feeling hungry! Russel Morins exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier we chose them! Alicia and Allie were such great people to work with and made everything seem soo easy! I can't thank them enough for the job well done! I understand how hard it is to find a wedding caterer that can deliver great food with excellent service, so if that's what you're looking for, you should contact Russel Morins ASAP! They won't let you down & you can stop worrying about the food because they are excellent. (There are plenty of other things you have to worry about)! More...

There are quite a few benefits to working with a more 'corporate' caterer like RM - the two most important to us were quality and adhering to our budget. RM owns their own china and linen, so because our venue required us to bring in rentals, this was a big selling point. Further, they've been doing this a long time and it's not by accident. Russ Morin Jr. is an active participant in his business and sees that each client is given the attention they deserve. Food, to us, was the most important part of day besides the ceremony, so it took us weeks to find RM and after comparing to other caterers, they were the clear choice.

We did an evening brunch for our reception, and it took a lot of work to finalize our perfect menu - and they did an impeccable job pulling the whole thing together. The staff were professional, courteous and were there to make sure my husband and I had everything we needed. Meghan even made a plate of passed hors dourves so my husband and I were able to try everything during the cocktail hour. When it is all over, you begin to nit-pick, but the truth is you choose a caterer who will provide the style of food you like and who will deliver on your most important day. RM did all of that and then some. Well done!

But even better than the food was how wonderful Russell Morin's staff was! Arolin Hughes was our Russell Morin rep and she was fantastic! She was so flexible throughout the past year and made every request of ours come true. On the wedding day, Arolin managed the reception/dinner with unbelievable ease and grace. She kept us on track with guidance and great patience. She was wonderful!

We could not have made a better choice than we did with Russell Morin Fine Catering, and somehow, we were lucky enough to work with Alicia, as well!

All of our guests absolutely RAVED about the food, as we knew they would. We had stations for dinner and five passed apps and a raw bar during cocktail hour, and people couldn't stop talking about it that night or the next day as our wedding weekend continued. Not only was the food tremendous, the staff -- from the waiters to the bartenders to Alicia -- was so professional and friendly. Many of our guests noted how kind, helpful and attentive the staff was, which made our wedding all that more enjoyable. Plus, with one personal attendant dedicated SOLELY to taking care of the bride and groom, there was no chance of us not eating at our own wedding!

I also have to say that Alicia specifically was amazing. We changed the menu over and over to get exactly what we wanted at a price we could afford, and she did everything in her power to make it happen. She helped us make signs for each of the stations that fit in with our theme and even catered to my weird eating habits. And we had so much fun every time we met!

Overall, Russell Morins was absolutely amazing!! Thanks for everything!

We LOVE Russell Morin Fine Catering! We had two children get married this year, fortuitously Morin's was the caterer at both. And our guests raved about both the food and service at both events. Each wedding had a different theme and completely different menu so we had an opportunity to see how capable this caterer is. First about the food: each and every dish was beautifully presented and delicious. At the first event, the bride requested a dish that was not on any of their sample menues. The chef created a delicious version which was the most remarked about at the wedding. Service: impeccable at both events. Both coordinators (Arolin and Meghan) were exceptional in seeing to every minute detail from coordinating the ceremony to the food service to taking care of the bride and groom to cleaning up and packing up all of our belongings at the end of the evening. Attention to detail: outstanding. At our second wedding we brought several "props" and had fairly elaborate table settings. All were attended to by the capable staff. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and look forward to having them at our next event! More...

I really wanted to provide our guests with a delicious culinary experience at our wedding and Russell Morin delivered that above and beyond. We got countless compliments on the food AND service staff. Everything was perfect. We did passed hors d'oeuvres, plated salads and two stations. The fish & chips cone and lobster rangoon were huge hits! And for the meals, lobster mac & cheese was delicious!! We also had grilled swordfish and tenderloin steaks which were cooked PERFECTLY! I don't know how they did it, but they did. So impressed and happy. Thank you!!! More...

People are still raving about the food & my husband is still raving about Meghan being so helpful & always making sure we had food & drinks on the day of. As far as price, you get what you pay for - definitely worth it. More...

I do events for a living and Russell Morin was amazing as a caterer. I especially want to point out Meghan was our wedding coordinator and she did a GREAT job. She put up with my many questions and always provide me with everything I asked for.

The staff at the day of the wedding went above and beyond to make the day perfect. I HIGHLY recommend Rusell Morin for your next event.

I can't say enough positive things about Russell Morin. We had our wedding reception at Blithewold & they did such a phenomenal job. It's been 2 weeks & people are still raving about the food. Meghan C was so great to work with. Our linens & table set ups came out gorgeous. She worked with me on every detail from the floor plan to the way the napkins were folded. She also made sure my husband & I were well fed (and always had a drink in our hands) during the reception. While its not cheap, you definitely get what you pay for & it was money well spent.

The most frequent comment we got from our guests in the weeks after our wedding has been, "That was the best food I've ever had at a wedding!"
The servers were incredibly nice and accommodating, the bar staff was great, and the food itself looked and tasted fantastic.
After the tasting, we were satisfied, but not thrilled with the food (it tasted like OK wedding food). But the day of our wedding, they hit it out of the park.

Russell Morin provided us delicious food and great drinks at a fairly reasonable price. Our coordinator made the day so easy- she took care of everything for us, including setting up favors and extra goodies. My only complaint was that we asked for passed drinks at cocktail hour to keep the line down, but the bartenders did not have trays ready. They had to stop serving the line to pour drinks to be passed. Not a deal breaker, but just a little disappointing. More...

Russel Morin Catering did such an incredible job for our wedding, the food was just beyond our expectations and I still get compliments for the dinner, champagne bar and everything else. Our wedding coordinator truly went the extra mile to make sure I was happy and made suggestions for the wedding that set it over the top. I would recommend this company to any bride or anyone that needs an excellent caterer and I am so thankful that I was able to choose this company and work with their incredible staff. More...

My wife and I gave a garden pond wedding reception for out Grandson and his bride and it was catered by Russ Morins. The food was incredible, hors d'oeuvres, sorbet,

salad, fantastic buffet to the custom cake, As outstanding as the food was the staff headed by event manager Meghan was equally as outstanding. Even with an unscheduled thunder shower, Meghan handeled it calmly as she went to plan B and after the shower out side tables were re-instated without a hitch. All our guests raved about the food and the Staff, and what was more important, the bride Anastasiya said she would remembem this event forever.
Thank you Meghan! Thank you all incredible staff members!
Sincerely
David and Patricia Nicholson

Our wedding was at Shining Tides in Mattapoisett and Morin's provided the catering services. From Day One, Erin (our Event Coordinator) and the entire Morin's staff were amazing. With Erin guiding us through the process, we never had to worry that any detail would be overlooked. Months prior to the wedding, we attended a private "Tasting" to sample appetizers, entrees and desserts to select our menu. Literally, everything we tried was tremendous. We had a very difficult time deciding on the final menu choices, so much so, that we served a fish, chicken and steak entrees for dinner! Dinner was served family style, so it worked out very well with the three entrees and supporting cast (roasted fingerling potatoes & caramelized onions, sautéed broccolini, bow tie pasta in pink vodka sauce, etc.). Cocktail hour favorites were the foie gras tater tots, citrus grilled shrimp and ahi tuna. Our guests are still calling to say what an amazing culinary experience Morin's provided. Service was impeccable as well. We give our highest recommendations to Erin and the entire Morin's staff. True professionals. More...

Our guests are still raving about the food from our wedding! The fish and chips and mini sliders were big hits as well as the cordial bar! The service was excellent and the staff was extremely attentive to the wedding party. We were worried about missing out on cocktail hour but we didn't miss a thing! Excellent! More...

My partner and I were sitting at a local coffee shop, I noticed out the window, these 2 huge trucks. Russel Morin’s trucks pulled over near a backdoor of the New Bedford Whaling Museum in what I assumed to caterer an event. I noticed my car was parked where the 2 trucks couldn’t be near each other. I grabbed my keys and yelled to one of them that I will move my vehicle, and they were so grateful. Jen and I continued to watch the well-orchestrated staff. Watching all the different types of food that came out of that cooking machine of trucks was truly magnificent. Only guessing what they were, and how delicious it could be! Right away, we went to their website and looked over their menu for a possibility for our special day.

Our wedding was non-traditional, not the typical, everyday wedding that typically people would attend. We are a same sex couple, and we didn’t want a formal sit down dinner, nor a buffet. Our menu consisted only of appetizers (hors d’oeuvres) passed and stations. Our wedding was a small garden wedding; therefore, our vision was simple and unique. I email Russel Morin’s and received a quick response back by Ali, (coordinator). Ali was amazing, helpful and extremely attentive to our needs. We wanted our wedding to be “laidback” and both of us brides took that approach as well.

The day of our wedding, we had to prepare for rain, therefore, our event was tented and previous plans had changed regarding location of the ceremony itself. I have to say, the catering truck wasn’t noticeable, hard to believe I know! The staff was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! They were everywhere, making sure everyone had a taste of all the different, yummy foods being offered. Our food was a hit, more importantly it reflected us. I can’t not say enough about the staff, as well as the food. ABSOUTLY OUTSTANDING!!! Whatever we needed, Russel Morin’s staffs made it happen! Will highly recommend to others.

Morins delivers top-notch presentation and quality at their events. Our coordinator (Arolin) had to switch to another wedding at the last minute, but was she so attentive and even called us the morning of our wedding to congratulate us. Our new coordinator (Kendra) didn’t miss a beat, nor did our banquet captain (Alana). They followed us around with appetizers so we wouldn’t miss out on the food during our cocktail hour. The food and bar were all top notch. Despite the higher cost of the menu, the bar is VERY reasonably priced, so it all evens out. Seeing that my husband and I were two former cater waiters, we thought the staff was incredible. Everyone was attentive, detailed, and professional. They even returned two unopened bottles of high-end scotch we bought as back-up (through them at a discounted price) at the end of the night; that integrity impressed me more than anything else! Given the quality of the food, professionalism of the staff, and overall attention to our event details, I highly recommend Russell Morin Fine Catering to anyone looking to make their event one to remember.

Arolin and the staff were absolutely fabulous. Things went well without a flaw - and we had two events on the same day (church reception and later family dinner reception). The bakery "artiste" Tiffany designed a fabulous wedding cake unique and specific to the couple. More...

Meghan was our wedding coordinator from Russell Morin and she helped answer all of our questions through the months of planning. Her flexibility, thoughtfulness and professionalism went above and beyond anything I expected. Russell Morin was the first vendor we booked as they did such an outstanding job with the food at my cousin's wedding, but I had no idea how easy it would be to work with Meghan and her team. Our wedding guests not only complemented the food, but also Meghan's ability to kept the party moving from the ceremony to cocktail hour to reception intros to dinner seamlessly. We had a platted salad then a grill station and a seafood station and it was all delicious and the service was perfect.

Thanks, Meghan!!

Russell Morin did the catering for my daughter's wedding as well as catered the brunch the morning after. We could not have been more pleased. The food was just fantastic! the service was wonderful, and the day-of coordinator that they assigned to us took care of every detail with wonderful care from the moment we were introduced to her months before the wedding right up until we packed up our things that night. They are an incredibly professional organization. More...

After speaking with a number of catering services we decided to choose Russell Morins Fine Catering for a number of reasons. Russ Morin was very friendly and easy to work with. He was able and willing to work with our budget and enjoyed how much attention he paid to our food and drinks preferences and likings.

I would highly recommend Russel Morins Fine Catering for a wedding or any other special event. We received many compliments about te food and the responsiveness of the personnel. I enjoyed working with Arolin, who was my assigned wedding coordinator from Russel Morins Fine Catering. She is very knowledgeable and was available to assist me with ANY question that I had. Arolin and her team made my wedding day and planning so stress free!

We wanted a fairytale wedding for our only daughter and all our dreams came true thanks to the amazing service and scrumptious food provided by Russell Morin's Fine Catering. The entire staff from the wait staff to the oyster shuckers to the hardworking wait staff and delivery staff to the chef/kitchen staff and mostly to our catering manager Alicia Sullivan made the day beyond our wildest expectations at the Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI. Every detail was perfection and we were treated like royalty throughout the entire process from the planning, tasting to the event. Many of our wedding guests told us that it was, hands down, the best food and the best service they have ever experienced, and this was a crowd who are all active on the New England wedding circuit! Worth every penny and then some...book your wedding with Morin's and you be making great memories while treating family and friends to an amazing day! One last thing--we were over the top pleased with our cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres--raw bar with oysters, clams and shrimp, beef wellington, asparagus frite, falafel and more! Yummy--our swordfish and tenderloin choices were great, too! Make Morin's your choice! So glad we did. Judy OstroskyWedding: 06/08/2013

Our wedding was on May 26, 2013 at the Roger Williams Park Casino. The first step in our planning process was to secure Russel Morin's for our day, based on all the wonderful things we have heard about them over the years. From the first day I began working with them, I knew I had made the right choice. Meghan Crump was our event coordinator and I cannot say enough about her. She always promptly answered each and every question or concern I had. She was patient and listened to all my ideas, and helped me make many decisions and plan every detail perfectly. The whole planning process was a blast, and the way Meghan broke it all down, it seemed almost effortless and so enjoyable! She gave me and my whole family the reassurance and confidence we needed, and assured us that everything would be taken care of. This was more than true, as we were absolutely BLOWN AWAY on our wedding day. From the moment I arrived at our venue to get ready, Meghan was right there, asking us what we needed and if we had any questions. She guided us in every single step of the way, from the beginning of the ceremony, to packing up all our cards and personal items at the end of the event. I could not have asked for a more attentive, patient, sweet and talented person to work with.
The entire staff was amazing, too. The waitstaff was exceptionally attentive and friendly, and went above and beyond, bringing drinks, coffee and dessert ( we had an open bar and a dessert buffet) to those guests who had trouble walking. The passed hors d'oeuvres were delicious, always hot and kept coming! The bartenders remember everyone's drinks throughout the evening. The meals were excellent, all our guests kept talking about the amazing food!! My husband and I were even sent home with a late night snack!
Flawless service, from beginning to end. Every last detail was taken care of. We could not be happier and more pleased. A truly unforgettable experience. Russel Morin's is by far the best.

I cannot recommend Morin's enough. From the first meeting they were the most pleasant and thoughtful to work with, helping us to craft every detail of the evening. Arolin got what we were going for right away and put together a great plan. On the evening of, the whole staff was wonderful and very professional serving our guests--we even had someone following us around with a plate of apps to make sure we didn't miss out on our own food in the hullabaloo. And, oh, the food. So good. You need to chose Russell Morin. More...
