Our Caterer, Hillary was awesome! She showed a level of professionalism and attentive to our needs for our wedding day. I would definitely recommend simply fresh for your catering needs.

My daughters, Sonni & Sonya McNear had a great opportunity to use the service of Simply Fresh, Gaithersburg, MD in Aug. 2019 for my mother's 70th Birthday Celebration and so glad that we choose this company. From the food tasting to the selections we chose it was excellent. We had many food choices and we were sold on the idea of fresh food. Their associates were professional, friendly with the guest and they were punctual and ready to serve. I highly recommend Simply Fresh with A+ rating.Thank you Gabby More...

We can't say enough about Simply Fresh and Hillary in particular. Hillary worked with my son and his wife to understand how they wanted to day to go at Rocklands Farms. The entire Simply Fresh staff was all on the same page and guided the day seemlessly. A few rain drops did not deter the flow - somehow a basket of umbrellas appeared by magic. The food was plentiful and delicious for the cocktail hour and the drinks flowed. The seated meal felt like a fine dinner out rather than standard wedding fare. The Simply Fresh staff was attentive and filled every need before the guest formed the question. With Hillary coordinating on our behalf, we enjoyed the evening since she ensured that there was not a wanted that was mentioned missed.

We had a Pittsburgh cookie table (the women in your life bake cookies to celebrate your day) and it was handled as if we were in PA. The display was wonderful - highlighting each lovingly made cookie. The cake was displayed beautifully. The s'mores were a fun addition to the evening. The Simply Fresh staff was right there to help with the sparkler send off at the conculsion of the evening. They were like ninjas - everywhere.

Hillary coordinated the transportation for us, worked with the venue, the florists, the photo booth company, the DJ, the celebrant, the photographer, the classic car company for send off and more. I literally can't express how wonderful everything was - thanks to Hillary and the Simply Fresh staff. my husband and I literally never worried about a detail the entire time! It was truly a magical night.

We decided to use Simply Fresh for a corporate party with appetizers and an open bar. Buffy made the ordering process super easy by providing suggestions for the menu and was really flexible with a couple of swaps that we wanted to make. The team onsite was professional, friendly, and hardworking from set up to take down. Plus, the food was delicious! Couldn't recommend more. More...

We loved working with Simply Fresh Events (especially Nicole Ryan)! If you book with Simply fresh you not only get great food, great customer service, you get a full service approach including helping with linens, shuttles, a full service bar (if you want it), and an amazing planner!
We loved that Simply Fresh worked closely with all of our vendors and were willing to go the extra mile to help us get everything we wanted and accommodated a few last minute changes when the beer we tried to get from a local brewery didn't quite work out (they offered to meet us at the brewery and make it work--we decided to go with cans/bottles).

We can't thank them enough for making our day amazing. Simply Fresh helped us pick out a menu that fit our needs and desires and our guests dietary restrictions.

From the planning to the day of--we can't say enough great things about Simply Fresh and their team! Special thanks to all the names/faces we didn't even see or know that helped us pull off an amazing day!

We are a 200+ public company in Rockville, MD. With only 2 weeks notice, Simply Fresh and Buffy Wiltz put together an amazing outdoor BBQ lunch for our entire staff. She contracted out the tent for us as well, and even used table covers in our company's colors as an added touch. I gave her the vision we had and she put together a wonderful lunch that everyone enjoyed. We had many who were gluten-free or vegan and she catered to their needs. She created several service lines to get people through quickly. Her staff onsite were professionally dressed, pleasant, helpful and smiling the entire time. You can tell that they take good care of their staff, which shows in their professionalism. I look forward to using them again in the future!!! More...

Simply Fresh Events recently catered an outdoor camping event for approximately 175 Girl Scouts. They were Wonderfull! Simply Fresh created a great taco bar for our Girl Scouts that was able to be served outside. The food was delivered on time and kept hot for more than two hours before it was eaten. There was more than enough food, and we received a ton of comments on how good everything was. The team was great to work with the whole way through. I can't say enough good things about Simply Fresh! More...

Simply Fresh Events catered a memorial party for the passing of my brother. Not only was the food fabulous but the staff was unbelievably professional, kind and so efficient. We could not have asked for a better group to help us with the celebration of my brother. We had so many compliments and requests from our guests for their info so others could engage them for their own events in the future. Thank you again Buffy, Theresa and the others from Simply Fresh Events! More...

I hosted a dinner party in my home catered by Simply Fresh Events. The evening was wonderful, from the planning and home visit prior to the event to the day of the dinner. The staff and chef were very professional, the presentation was beautiful and the food was delicious. The guests were very impressed and the dinner flow was coordinated by Brian. He ensured that the evening ran smoothly. I would highly recommend using Simply Fresh and intend to use them for my next gathering. More...

We used Simply Fresh for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah two years ago and couldn't wait to hire them again for our next one. We found Geoff and Jocelyn (and their team) as friendly and personable as before. They were both very responsive both by email and phone with our many questions. After our tasting (which we thoroughly enjoyed) they were very amenable to making tweaks to the cooking styles/seasonings to suit our personal taste. At the Bat Mitzvah, they were extremely attentive to my whole family, rushing around to make sure the Bat Mitzvah girl and all of us were fed and watered. I received a ton of compliments on how delicious the food was. People especially seemed to love the brisket (not to be missed! - smoked fresh the day before by Geoff himself), the potato pancakes (people were eating them by the handful and talking about how deliciously crisp and irresistible they were. A neighbor said she broke a 3 month carb fast by eating several, and deemed them totally worth it!), and the individual raspberry cheesecake cups. I'll be hiring them for my next event, and I recommend them highly. More...

Simply Fresh Events catered our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at Rocklands Farm. They did an amazing job. Geoff and Jocelyn were very patient with us as we went back and forth on the menus and the decor. They were very creative in making an event unique to our family and time of year. The weekend was forecast to be very rainy and Geoff worked hard to make sure everything would be prepared for the weather and that our guests would be comfortable. At the event itself, the food was fantastic! The staff were very invested in making sure the event was special and ran smoothly. It was a pleasure working with Geoff and Jocelyn and they truly delivered a wonderful evening for us and our guests. More...

I can safely say that without Simply Fresh, our wedding wouldn't have happened. They helped us plan through every step of the process including decor, seating, food, even the processional down the aisle. Nicole was our wedding coordinator, and she was incredible. She kept our wedding running smoothly and was a joy to work with. Also I want to note how great the servers and staff were. Overall my husband and I are so glad we hired Simply Fresh for our wedding, we can't imagine what we would have done without them!! More...

My son and his now-wife wanted their wedding to reflect their personalities and interests, and Simply Fresh was the perfect match for them. Nicole and her team could not have been more accommodating or more fun to work with. Rather than imposing their own ideas of what a wedding should be, they were completely on-board with the anime and Harry Potter touches. They were also incredibly organized and thought of all the details. The settings were lovely, the food was fabulous (the cake was to die for), and the staff were completely professional without being stuffy. I have pretty high standards, and Simply Fresh exceeded them at every turn. Can't thank Nicole and SImply Fresh's staff enough for making our son's wedding a completely joyous event. More...

It was a pleasure working with Simply Fresh Events on our wedding, Goeffrey & Jocelyn took care of everything, from helping up with planing picking up guests to setting up tables and suggesting menus. Everything was set on time, the food was delicious, the staff worked in a professional way. Both of them were helpfull in receiving our orders and providing helpfull lists for us to not forget anything that we needed to have on our side. They contacted the bus for us to pick up our guests at their hotels and transporting them to the site, they contacted and hired a bilingual DJ, the food was " 100 puntos", all of our guests had a great time and we enjoyed our day without hiving to worry !!!! Definitely recommend working with them !!! BRAVO !!!! More...

It would be easy to recommend Simply Fresh just for the food they provided at our wedding. However, what really set Simply Fresh apart was the level of service they provided, especially Geoff and Jocelyn. From the start, they were quick to respond to our inquiries and were very accommodating in scheduling meetings and tastings around our trips to Maryland. In addition, not only do they offer catering services, but they provided all of the service staff on the day of the wedding and Jocelyn served as our wedding coordinator. This significantly lowered our stress as Jocelyn took care of everything during our wedding including moving guests from one point to another, helping make sure toasts were made before elderly guests had to leave, and ensuring we went home with plenty of leftovers. Geoff and Jocelyn were clearly dedicated to making sure our wedding was special for us and went off without a hitch. More...

I worked with Buffy and Matt to cater an event at my house last month. They were awesome to work with, agreeable to everything we wanted to do. I did not have to worry about the food at all. Their chefs and servers came a couple hours early, set everything up and fed our family and friends. Everything was delicious and their team seemed to enjoy the guests as well. The clean-up was excellent, nothing to clean up afterwards! I will absolutely call them for future catering needs. More...

Choosing Simply Fresh was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They were recommended from our venue, Rock Creek Mansion. We started working with Geoff and Jocelyn (mainly with Jocelyn) from the start and met with her for our tasting, cake tasting, picking out the rentals, and meeting the week before the wedding. This consistency was extremely helpful in building a relationship and trust. Jocelyn also invited us to look at another wedding they were doing at our venues about 6 months before ours. This was so helpful to see the range of what they could do to transform the space. The day of the wedding, Jocelyn and her team went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we need and that everything went according to plan. I had a lot of decor that I provided/made myself and she set it up wonderfully. Jocelyn also made sure we stayed on schedule, had food to eat, and always had a drink in our hand! After a year of planning and worrying, we were able to rely on her to make sure our reception went without a hitch. Oh—and we should mention—the food was delicious and pleased our culturally diverse guests! We are so glad we worked with Simply Fresh and would recommend them to any couple. More...

The venue we choose for our wedding celebration was a stunning backdrop for an amazing day, but it was Simply Fresh and our Event Coordinator, Nicole, that provided us with all that we needed to host the amazing party we wanted to throw, to celebrate our special day. From the first call to Simply Fresh, through the entire planning stage – to include tastings and wedding day coordination - Nicole and her team were extremely professional and extremely knowledgeable, it was easy to trust every detail would be covered. On the day of our wedding, the team kept the day moving along as planned and the staff went above and beyond, with many of our guests telling us how friendly and helpful everyone on Simply Fresh’s staff was. We also have to say, not only was Simply Fresh amazing at event planning, the FOOD was absolutely amazing as well – Five Star Restaurant quality. If you’re looking for an amazing, professional and caring team to help you celebrate your day, you cannot go wrong in working with Simply Fresh. We highly recommend them to help make your day as amazing as ours. More...

We used Simply Fresh Events for our wedding on 17 June 2016 of about 100 people at Oxon Hill Manor, MD. From right after we hired them, they helped us organize, were there to answer questions, and provided invaluable advice on how to make our day even more special.
On the day of the event, they arrived on time, quickly set up the location, making all the details perfect. After we arrived they had one person who constantly checked up on my wife and I all afternoon and evening. We felt like royalty! Again they gave us advice and kept us organized throughout the night. If there was something that needed a last minute change, no one could have noticed. They set up our favor table with even more detail than I had. The food was delicious and all our guests raved on how good it was. The bartenders kept the guests very happy with their service. Couldn't be more happy with their service. Will recommend for any further events!

We used Simply Fresh Events to help plan our wedding in June 2016 at Rocklands Farm Winery. In the week since when friends ask how the wedding went, we tell them that every single thing went perfectly. “Wow,” our friends usually respond, “No one ever says that.” My wife and I know that the tremendous success of our wedding is thanks to Geoffrey and Jocelyn and Simply Fresh Events. We began working with them in the spring of 2015. Simply Fresh took care of every detail on our behalf, and pointed us in the direction of other excellent vendors (photographers, florists, etc.) when we needed them. Midway through the planning process, my wife and I moved out of the area for work, and we still found it effortless to coordinate with Simply Fresh from 1600 miles away. Geoffrey and Jocelyn are highly professional and innovative planners, and several of their decorating and event suggestions (a crate of apples to decorate the bar, a sparkler send-off to close the night, etc.) made for the most memorable moments of our event. As we approached our wedding day, and issues and obstacles appeared with greater frequency, Simply Fresh proved extremely flexible and adept at solving any crisis: from switching seafood vendors to procuring a stage for our band, all at the last minute. At the wedding itself, our guests were full of raves not just for the event but for the catering. Several guests remarked that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding (and we agree). Others were quite pleased by how creatively the chefs had planned for both our carnivorous and vegetarian guests; one was especially delighted, exclaiming that she had never had so many vegetables at a wedding. Simply Fresh delivered on and exceeded our expectations in every facet of the wedding. Perhaps most importantly, they made the entire planning and execution process easy and fun. We highly recommend that you consider their services for your own event. More...

I had my wedding reception at Rocklands Farm earlier this month, and choosing Simply Fresh Events was easily one of the best decisions we made. Nicole was wonderful to work with and made every step of the way leading up to and during the reception so much easier. During and after the reception I heard so many positive things from guests about the cocktail hour and dinner (the BEST pulled pork), the set-up & decorations, and how everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful all evening. The whole evening was amazing and I cannot thank Nicole and the SFE crew enough! More...

I was recently married on June 24th. Booking Simply Fresh was one of the best decisions I made. Jocelyn and Geoff made the process so easy. I never stressed over my wedding. The food was amazing. Multiple guests commented that it was the best food they ever had at the wedding. We had mini crab cakes, bacon wrapped scallops, flat bread pizzas, rock fish, flank steak, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes bar, grilled vegetables, salad, and a popcorn bar. Even the pickiest of eaters were satisfied! Working with Jocelyn was a dream. She helped me with anything and everything from the linens and table settings to securing a tent at the last minute. She even helped my brother (with no officiating experience) with the order of the ceremony. The day of the wedding, there are always little things that pop up. Jocelyn handled everything! I had no idea there were any potential problems. She also made sure my husband and I had anything we may want or need throughout the day. My wedding would not have run as seemlessly without Jocelyn. She even got food from the buffet for our grandparents. There are so many other things that I know I am forgetting that Jocelyn and her team helped with. If I ever plan another event that needs catering, I will absoutly book Simply Fresh again! More...

Simply Fresh Events made the wedding planning process incredibly easy. We worked with them for our September wedding reception and I could not be happier with their services.

The food was incredible. Our guests raved about the food that night. Highly recommend their sweet potato casserole, it was one of the best I've had!

Jocelyn was especially helpful during the planning process. She has a lot of experience with the event planning which made it all much less overwhelming.

We were absolutely blown away at how professional and high-quality Simply Fresh catering was for our October wedding! When my husband and I first went in for the consultation and tasting, the table was elegantly set with large portions of delicious food to try. They encouraged us to give feedback and criticism. We made changes and they ensured everything to eat was perfect for our preferences. They even gave us a doggy bag to take the rest of the food home!

Throughout the process building up to the wedding, they were always responsive, professional, and easy to work with. During the wedding, they provided two event coordinators that literally ran the entire show for us, and it was an absolute blessing! We couldn’t have done it without Simply Fresh and I would recommend them to anyone.

While the wedding party was taking pictures, they even came outside and brought us drinks and crab cakes! That totally hit the spot in the heat, and hit home for me. They made sure that the bride and groom were always taken care of. I would recommend Simply Fresh to anyone as a #1 choice for event catering, especially your wedding.

My husband and I are SO incredibly glad that we decided to book Simply Fresh Events. When we initially met Geoffrey, he made us feel so at home, we didn't want to meet with anyone else after we met with SFE.

We worked with Monica and she was such an amazing help and never once did I feel like the SFE staff did not deliver on wedding day. The chefs at SFE are amazing and worked with us to make our comfort food menu that was filled with our cocktail hour that included mini grilled cheese and tomato soup, a biscuit bar, and pork belly skewers and our wedding menu which included chicken and waffles, braised short ribs, grilled vegetables, mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes. It's been over a week and our guests are still telling us how amazing the food is.

The whole process of meeting with them, booking them, all the steps leading up to wedding day, and the actual wedding day, was flawless in our eyes. Simply Fresh Events is literally the wedding caterers you want to book.

The experience with Simply Fresh was simply the best. Geoff was fun, attentive, creative, and never rushed. He gave us great advice, worked with our budget, and advised us about the weather. We had about 200 guests and they all felt the results of Geoff's skills: a relaxed, casual, fun evening...topped off by just great food. The transitions from welcome, entertainment, dinner, and then toasts/roasts were flawless and almost invisible. Highly recommended. More...

Simply Fresh Events did a fabulous job catering a luncheon for 350 people. The staff was great to work with through the planning process and helped us think through several scenarios.

We can’t say enough good thing about Simply Fresh Events. While many guests have remarked that the food was the best they’d ever had at a wedding, others have noted that the entire day felt very authentic to who we are as people - both are a result of Geoff and Jocelyn listening to us, helping us make decisions and to answer any question we might have, and then working feverishly behind the scenes to make it all happen. It rained on our wedding day, and we’d made the decision to move the ceremony indoors. With about an hour and a half to spare, as the weather improved, the Simply Fresh staff moved the entire ceremony setup back outside, and not a single guest knew. Jocelyn was incredibly helpful leading up to our wedding day and especially helpful managing the events and helping to make sure every detail was taken care of on the day itself, she and Geoff were truly invaluable in making our wedding perfect.

Simply Fresh was simply amazing for my daughter and her new husband's wedding! From the initial planning with Geoff to the final details with Jocelyn, everything was perfect. They provided expert guidance with everything: food choices, the timeline of the day, decorations and everything in between. All of these things were completely taken care of and helped all of us simply enjoy the evening. Not to mention, the food was delicious! Thanks for making this special event in our family even more special! More...

We had both our Rehearsal & Wedding Reception meals catered by Simply Fresh at our family farm on October 2 & 3, 2015. We had gotten nearly 12" of rain prior, but despite the wet, muddy conditions the professional, polite staff rolled out 2 evenings of delicious food with beautiful presentation. We could not be happier with all the compliments we received from our guests and highly recommend Simply Fresh for your next catered affair. More...

We had our daughters wedding at Rocklands Farm Winery in Poolesville MD. Jocelyn was absolutely wonderful. From the food to every aspect of the wedding Jocelyn made it wonderful. Everyone complemented on how great the food and venue was during the evening. It was flawless and Jocelyn made sure everything went like clockwork. LOVED the entire event!!!! Thank you so much for making my daughters dreams come true � More...

We had Simply Fresh cater our relay race in Rock Creek Park, and I can't say enough great things about the professionalism of the staff (they arrived early & were incredibly efficient & polite), the quality of the food (the pulled pork and chicken were absolutely RAVED about by our 400+ runners and volunteers), and overall experience. I wasn't familiar with Simply Fresh, and taking a chance with a new caterer on an event of this magnitude made me a bit anxious. I can honestly say they absolutely exceeded all of my expectations, and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for catering services in the DC/MD/VA area. More...

Simply Fresh was AMAZING. The food was SO good! All of my guests KEEP telling me how good it was, and how they wish they could have taken some home! And we chose to serve pudding for dessert as opposed to cake, and OH MY GOD. It was so good! It was served in chocolate and vanilla with a toppings bar. It was the hit of the wedding (besides us getting married, of course). Not only is the food incredible, but the service was fantastic. Jocelyn was great working with us, and helped us through everything! The whole staff really went above and beyond just catering. If you want to have a relaxing time, good food, and feel completely taken care of, book Simply Fresh. They're awesome! Thank you guys for making it such a great experience! More...

SFE was an absolute pleasure to work with. They had outstanding input from beginning to end and worked tirelessly to ensure everything was on point during my event.

Wedding planning, while some might think is a dream, I sort of considered a bit of a nightmare. I had never organized an event that big, especially with a dinner involved, and was truly out of my depths. Jocelyn and Geoff's caring steadiness was the only thing that got me through this. They are truly wonderful people to work with, and will make sure that you are feeling good about every decision every step of the way. They maintain a level of professionalism that helped me feel at ease in a very chaotic time. During my wedding itself, Jocelyn and Geoff might as well have been magicians flying around with magic wands. My guests mentioned for weeks after about how smooth everything was - and you can be sure even the smallest details will be cared for. These guys are PRO!!! You will not be sorry for choosing them, and I will be recommending their service for the rest of my life. They are so easy to work with and just such reasonable, down to earth, good people. If the quality and efficacy of the person involved is important to you when choosing where to put your business, you wont be let down by going with Simply Fresh. Plus they have the cutest kids :) Thank you so much Jocelyn and Geoff!!!! More...

UNI Urgent Care Center wants to thank Simply Fresh Events again for our amazing company picnic! From the moment we emailed the company to inquire about services, their response was within a day, with a personal call, and they were eager to make our menu perfect for our employees. All communication was seamless, respectful, and they were just as excited as we were to plan. The day of the event, their employees were attentive and came prepared with everything and arrived on time. Their staff even helped our company staff decorate which was not required or expected. Such sweet and professional people. And let's not forget the food was delicious! Loved that we could add on the snowball stand and face painting to our catering. A one stop shop which made it easier for planning! Thank you again to Simply Fresh Events and we will definitely be using their services again in the near future! More...

We had a really great experience working with Simply Fresh for our wedding, which really came together perfectly on the day of. More than anything, we were beyond grateful to have had the opportunity work with our amazing planner, Nicole, to whom we would give 10 stars if we could! Throughout the entire process, she was extremely proactive in reaching out about the different elements we needed to take care of, had many ideas about how to incorporate all of the details we wanted to include and extremely flexible all the way up to the day of our wedding. She made herself very available, and we were able to meet with her a number of times over the course of our planning process to make sure we were all on the same page. On the day of the wedding, she directed her staff very well and was great about making sure that the night moved along and everyone had a great time.
Our wedding was in a barn, which presents quite a few additional layers of logistics as compared to more traditional venues, but we were able to get everything we needed through Simply Fresh. From renting tables, silverware, shuttle buses, catering and even a popcorn machine, they did it all, which made coordination so much easier. The food was simple and tasty (though a bit pricey for what it was) and the wait staff was friendly on the night of. We were happy to have worked with Simply Fresh and recommend them, especially if you're going for a barn wedding!

Simply Fresh Events did an amazing job with our corporate picnic! The staff were very professional and helped us with every question we had. They set-up extra tables for us to have a drawing/coloring station and a puzzle station. The food was absolutely delicious and I heard nothing but raving reviews about the taste and quality. Also, they assisted with setting up another table on the stage for our music. This was a more low-key event when compared to a wedding, but the staff made it feel special for us. Everyone who I spoke to about the event mentioned that they had a lovely time! We would highly recommend this company for any catering needs. A huge plus is that all of the leftover food went to people in need! Such a wonderful gesture that made us feel better about our choice of caterer. Thank you so much, Simply Fresh! More...

I missed that the wrong location was indicated on the contract- we'd given then the right location in our initial email.

Several comments from our guests were made about the freshness and taste of the food. Very pleased with the overall outcome. Slightly more than we'd like to spend on a catered event, but completely worth the cost for the professionalism and stellar product. More...

Like most normal human beings, my now husband and I love food. With that being said, we aren't billionaires so we wanted to find good wedding caterers that didn't cost us an arm and a leg.

I believe it was fate because I don't even know how I came across Simply Fresh Events but I thank my lucky stars I did. Geoffrey was the first person I talked to and he was incredibly kind and helpful through the whole process before we even signed a contract with SFE. Once my now husband and I chose to book SFE for our wedding, we then worked with Monica who was the absolute best person to work with. Even when we chose to change the menu, she allowed us to come back in to have a second tasting and saw me through every change and question I had.

My husband and I chose to do away with the typical fish and steak type wedding food and chose not to do BBQ style (as that was big around the time we were in the caterer hunt) and decided to go with more a comfort food menu that included chicken and waffles and braised short ribs and let me tell you. It was absolutely DELICIOUS. Our guests cannot stop talking about the food and how delicious it was. I can't tell you how many people I saw go up for seconds or go up for items they had missed.

The rest of the staff on wedding day was equally amazing. They were always checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed/wanted and they were SO much fun to work with.

I want to thank Geoffrey, Jocelyn, Monica, and the rest of the SFE staff for their neverending kindness and for making our wedding day incredible by filling our wedding guests bellies with delicious food.

Jocelyn Barker was extremely responsive and guided us through every detail. I would have been lost without her! When I walked into the venue the afternoon of the wedding, I totally relaxed because it was obvious everything was under control. From the outdoor ceremony to the last dance, I never notice a hiccup...it flowed beautifully. So many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and we certainly agreed. Great quality for a reasonable price! I would use Simply Fresh Events again without hesitation. More...

Geoff started off by asking us what we wanted. "Pretend the sky is the limit, what do you want to see? what do you want to eat?" From there Geoff and Jocelyn took our ideas and incorporated them into a plan that fit our budget. I HIGHLY respect a company that will look at you and honestly say "I don't think you will get the result you are looking for by doing x, y, z". Their years of experience gives them a ton of creative ways to make things work and the knowledge to know when its just not feasible, or when they can make it work - but the end result just is not what the couple was hoping for. Jocelyn's ability to listen in order understand what a client wants and doesn't want is phenomenal.
For me, they didn't just do food/catering, she was my decorator, day-off reception coordinator and foodie all in one! The entry way and reception site was exactly what I envisioned, we had rain off and on that day so outdoor space use didn't work out, but you would have never known. She still managed to get all the details I wanted, room for the guests, food, bars, and decor into a smaller space without being crowded.
I have recommended them to family and friends since my wedding. My mom is looking to use them for a corporate event, friends will be using it for their daughter's bridal shower. I really cannot say enough good "stuff" about Simply Fresh.
*Total spent with this vendor as noted below included all rentals (tables, chairs, linens, place settings) food/liquor, servers, etc. For me, other than reception site rental fee and decorative items I purchased for the foyer rooms, it was a one-stop shopping

Jocelyn and Geoff catered our wedding at Rocklands Farm. Their food was delicious, they were super easy to work with, honest and straightforward, flexible, unflappable, and they weren't overpriced. Jocelyn became our de facto event planner too, which we so appreciated. Highly recommend them. More...

Simply Fresh was an absolutely incredible caterer for our daughter's wedding! They were so helpful every step of the way, from the initial planning down to the final details. The food was delicious and the wedding was executed perfectly. We couldn't have done it without them! We all wholeheartedly recommend Simply Fresh for anyone needing a caterer. They go above and beyond simply serving food! Thanks so much! More...

The folks at Simply Fresh were seriously so wonderful. We went with them for our October wedding at Rocklands Farm knowing that they have worked there many times. We knew with them that our whole day would operate like a well-oiled machine and it really did. They brought us food and drinks and made sure everyone was cared for throughout the entire day. I could not have asked for more from the service side. Also - our home cooking/bbq meal was delicious. If anything - people were telling us they wish they left it out longer so they could have went back for seconds or thirds :p Jocelyn was a true delight throughout the entire process and I wouldn't have had it any other way. She took my vision and really made it happen (and here I was thinking she was just a caterer)!

In retrospect, we were a little naive going into the catering side of our wedding. Since we paid for most of the wedding ourselves, it sometimes felt a little defeating learning that a restroom trailer cost over $1,000 dollars to rent (especially when there is already one there on the property that people can apparently use - I have talked to some family members after the big day that said they used the one that wasn't even there for the wedding...), so a few aspects felt like, "man, if we didn't have to pay so much for XX then we could have more appetizers, or something else." things like that. That's not on them, though, we never brought the restroom trailer up as something to negotiate. We did discuss negotiating the use of heaters (which we did not really end up using) and they were willing to work with us. I am still confident that we got a lot of bang for our buck.

Overall I would recommend Simply Fresh to anyone having a wedding at Rocklands or needing catering in the area because of their delicious food, attention to detail, and overall genuine friendliness!

Simply Fresh was AMAZING. The food was SO good! All of my guests KEEP telling me how good it was, and how they wish they could have taken some home! And we chose to serve pudding for dessert as opposed to cake, and OH MY GOD. It was so good! It was served in chocolate and vanilla with a toppings bar. It was the hit of the wedding (besides us getting married, of course). Not only is the food incredible, but the service was fantastic. Jocelyn was great working with us, and helped us through everything! The whole staff really went above and beyond just catering. If you want to have a relaxing time, good food, and feel completely taken care of, book Simply Fresh. They're awesome! More...

Simply Fresh's service could not have been better! I wish I could give them 10 stars across the board. Geoff and Jocelyn have event service down pat and their team is incredible. Our wedding went so smoothly because of this incredible team. They say things won't go as you plan for your wedding, but because of Jocelyn and Geoff EVERYTHING went as planned! No question that we would use them again and again and again. They were very responsive to our questions. They met with us many times out at the farm where we got married and answered e-mails right away. We had SO many complements that the food at our wedding was THE BEST wedding food people had ever had. They cooked everything on site (on a 97 degree day) to perfection! Their attention to detail and care for the bride and groom was outstanding. At the end of the night I thought I needed to go and collect all of my clothes and all of my bridesmaids clothes from the bridal suite, but Jocelyn and her team had already packed everything up for us and put it on our shuttle. We couldn't have dreamed of a better company to work with on our wedding day. Thank you Jocelyn and Geoff! More...

Geoff & Jocelyn were amazing to work with! They helped us tremendously throughout the planning process with ideas and other vendor recommendations and then they coordinated everything for the day of and it was fantastic! They made sure we were fed and hydrated, and this is huge since most of our friends told us that they were starving their whole wedding because they didn't get to eat. We didn't have that problem, they took amazing care of us and our food was fantastic! Not just good for wedding food, but actually delicious! Everyone kept raving about our food and we all know that never happens at weddings, most weddings have food on a scale of terrible, to not bad, but our food was actually really delicious! We also picked everything, I've heard from other friends that you don't always get options on all of your food, but that was not the case with us at all, we picked everything. It was very specific to what we wanted. We didn't go into our planning process with a vision, but they really helped us plan a wonderful event and we could not have done it without them! They're also really amazing at finding ways to do what you want within your budget so you can work with them to find a way to incorporate everything you want at the price you need. More...

Our wedding was on April 30, 2016, and we couldn't be happier with how Geoff and Jocelyn handled our catering. All our guests raved about our cocktail hour and BBQ buffet (which went perfectly with the rustic Rocklands Farm venue), but even more important, my family, groom, and I didn't have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding. Jocelyn's team handled everything from setting up the decorations and directing foot traffic to helping us feel great about our rain plan (since it was an April wedding, after all)! One of our favorite parts of the day was right after the ceremony, where Geoff and Jocelyn had set up a table just for my groom and me to enjoy some of the cocktail hour treats before we went to take photos. It was such a nice time to catch our breath and take everything in. Would definitely recommend Simply Fresh Events to any bride, especially if she's thinking about getting married at Rocklands Farm! Geoff and Jocelyn know the venue inside and out and work so well with everyone there. More...

Everyone raved about the dinner, which is a miracle at any wedding - we gave a lot of people their name and contact info, because everyone was asking about it! And the service could not have been better, they made our special day a truly enjoyable experience. I'm so grateful for this team - they truly went above & beyond to meet our needs, as well as our wants! I'd recommend them to anyone, and I will ABSOLUTELY use them again for our next event! More...

I got married a month ago (May 2016). Simply Fresh was simply AMAZING! You cannot go wrong by working with them. They are great people, and you can tell they care about what YOU want. They work with menu's and have amazing food, but it doesnt stop there.

Jocelyn and her crew were there every step of the way. Picking out linens and rentals, choosing decor, helping find other vendors, and keeping me on track with my planning. Jocelyn and her team went above and beyond anything I ever expected. She was available to always answer easy text messages, or talk me through any doubts or questions I had.

The best part the day of went off FLAWLESSLY - even with the unexpected rain - Jocelyn and her crew was always right there asking my husband and me if we needed anything, our drinks were always full and we didnt need to stress about the next event. The day flowed perfectly.

Guests are still raving to me about how amazing my wedding was and how DELICIOUS the food was. I believe my cousin said it was "the best pulled pork he has ever had."

I would HIGHLY recommend Simply Fresh - Geoff and Jocelyn are the absolute greatest - they are professional, kind, understanding, and best of all there for you!

Jocelyn and Geoff did an amazing job on our wedding! We wanted an imitate casual wedding at a park, Jocelyn met us there and helped us with the ceremony layout, menu choices and decor. It was so stress free working with them. When my fiancé and I arrived for the ceremony everything was set up beautifully. We got to just relax and socialize with our guests before the ceremony started. The reception was perfect, the food and drinks were amazing! All our guests commented on how delicious the food was. After the ceremony and reception they took care of all the clean up. My husband and I had such a great day, we are so happy we got to work with Simply Fresh Events for our wedding! More...

We worked with Simply Fresh to cater our wedding last month at Rocklands Farm in Poolesville, a venue they're really familiar with -- and that familiarity was a HUGE help when it came to event setup, advice about details, coordinating between various moving parts, and working with the farm owner over the course of our planning. Jocelyn Barker (Simply Fresh's event planner) acted as our day-of coordinator in addition to her other responsibilities, making sure that things ran smoothly. Maybe we were just oblivious or blissed out during the wedding, but we can't remember her dropping the ball on a single thing. The staff they hired were all pleasant and professional. Geoff Barker, the chef, is a little gruff but knows what he's doing in the kitchen, so pay attention and take his advice on dish combinations! We had salmon, bbq chicken, roasted potatotes, grilled veggies...pretty traditional stuff, but all of it was really tasty, colorful, and didn't feel boring. Geoff also handles a lot of the behind-the-scenes planning; he even booked our transportation and arranged for a restroom trailer onsite.
For anyone booking their wedding at Rocklands, we highly recommend going with Simply Fresh.

When I asked my guests their favorite part of my wedding, I was surprised at how many people said the food – specifically the hot dog sliders!
My husband and I got married on a crisp March day at Rocklands Farm in Poolesville. Our food was prepared on site and was fresh and warm.
We had heavy hors d’oeuvres served for 2 hours to create more of a party feel for our reception. We selected all of our favorite foods: French Fries, Grilled Cheese, Butternut Squash Soup, Quesadillas, Sliders and Grilled Vegetables. Simply Fresh took all of our request and prepared upscale versions of those simple foods.
Geoff and Jocelyn of Simply Fresh worked with us in every step of our wedding planning process. We selected Simply Fresh because they have catered many events and our venue. Their knowledge of the venue, what worked and did not work, was so helpful in planning a wedding that flowed well.
The day of the event I was not expecting Jocelyn and her staff to be as attentive as they were; she well exceeded any expectation I had!! Every time I turned around she was there telling me what was next on the schedule, handing me a glass of wine or checking in to see if I needed anything. And not just me, her staff looked after my groom, mother, and grandparents with special care. I cannot say enough about all that she did on the day of our wedding to make it run smoothly and take away any stress that I had! Care and attention was given to every detail!
I loved every minute of my wedding, and Simply Fresh played a large part in the success and enjoyment of the day. Thank you!!

He also worked around our crazy schedule to schedule a tasting. Looking forward to working with both of them as our wedding day approaches. *Update - Jocelyn is worth her weight in gold!! She came to our rescue on our wedding day when our limo company left us stranded at our venue at the end of the night. Not only that, but she took my vision and executed it better than I could have. On top of all of that, our wedding guests are still RAVING about our food 9 months later!!! More...

Geoff and Jocelyn helped us pull together a perfect wedding day on our family farm. They spent countless hours with us and our family deciding on and figuring out how to carry out our every wedding wish/need. A hurricane moved up the coast the week of our wedding and caused us to have to rework several details. They spent much of that week with us to help us carry out our back-up rain plan so that everything would still work out fabulously on our big day. The food was beyond fantastic. Several guests commented on how delicious it was. We tried out a few caterers, but Geoff and Jocelyn simply knocked it out of the park with their catering expertise. We were blown away with Jocelyn's attention to detail and coordination of the entire wedding day. We're very happy that we hired them :) More...

We used Simply Fresh Events for both the Rehearsal Dinner & Wedding Reception at our family farm & couldn't be more pleased with the delicious, beautifully presented meals! It had unfortunately rained over 12" the week of our wedding, so we had to contend with last minute changes & wet, muddy conditions. The professional, polite staff took charge of everything & helped us move the wedding into the reception tent at the last minute. They prepared both meals on site (in tents!) for over 150 people and we couldn't have been more pleased with the results/ many compliments from our guests! If you want the job done right, we highly recommend Simply Fresh Events for your next catered affair. More...

I worked with Geoff and Jocelyn to plan and cater my wedding. They were wonderful, especially since I was planning my wedding from Colorado. They answered emails quickly and met with me when I was in town. They also made several great suggestions for vendors that I could use that knew the space for our reception. I did not have the time to do the research myself. Jocelyn helped me with a timeline, centerpieces, the layout, and with all the decorations that I wanted. It was great that on the day of I was not worrying about any of these things. She also kept me on schedule all evening so that my guests and myself could enjoy everything without having to worry. I would highly recommend them for any event that you are having.

We had Geoff & Jocelyn coordinate an amazing cocktail hour and sit-down formal dinner for our wedding. They traveled an hour to our venue, supplied ample wait staff, and most importantly, were personally there to work out the inevitable wedding day kinks (i.e., unforeseen issues with our venue that Jocelyn was professionally & promptly able to resolve).

Geoff went out of his way to stop by for a couple hours when he was not scheduled to do so; Jocelyn was pretty much our de facto day-of planner and provided amazing backup and value. Also, Jocelyn was there for us providing insight and input during the entire planning process - she acted as our own wedding planner/coordinator.

I would use them for my corporate events and even family events that needed catering. We have no need to look anywhere else. Prices were better than most, food was delish (dozens of guests volunteered this), and the best thing I can say is that when we look back at our wedding, it was worth every penny and then some to have them cater it.

We had Geoff & Jocelyn coordinate an amazing cocktail hour and sit-down formal dinner for our wedding. They traveled an hour to our venue, supplied ample wait staff, and most importantly, were personally there to work out the inevitable wedding day kinks (i.e., unforeseen issues with our venue that Jocelyn was professionally & promptly able to resolve).

Geoff went out of his way to stop by for a couple hours when he was not scheduled to do so; Jocelyn was pretty much our de facto day-of planner and provided amazing backup and value. Also, Jocelyn was there for us providing insight and input during the entire planning process - she acted as our own wedding planner/coordinator.
