“My wedding was held at Copper Leaf Event Center and catered by the Gourmet Kitchen. The event center is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. The ceremony was held outdoors in front of a charming white gazebo, the reception was held indoors, and there are lots of spots for taking photos. The bridal suite, groom’s suite, and lobby area were very spacious and suited my needs perfectly. The food by the Gourmet Kitchen was fabulous and some of the best I’ve tasted!
The owner, Madhoo, was easy to work with and very accommodating. She responded to emails and phone calls quickly and was extremely helpful and attentive during the rehearsal dinner and the day of the wedding. Madhoo set us up with other wedding businesses (DJ, cake, photographer), which was extremely helpful, as it cut down searching and planning on my part. I do wish I had had more help and advice in planning the timeline for the wedding day from the event center. However, the wedding day still ran smoothly and was great! I am quite satisfied that I had my wedding at Copper Leaf, and I certainly recommend it to others getting married.”
“Our daughter was married at Copper Leaf Events Center about a week and a half ago. The event was catered by the Gourmet Kitchen. We also had the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner there the evening before.
Overall, we were very pleased with the center and the catering. Everyone liked the food and there was plenty of it. That was true for both the main meals and the appetizers.
The staff were very helpful and courteous. They did a good job of making sure that things flowed smoothly. Our contract included cake, DJ, and photographers. The cake was lovely and delicious. The DJ kept things flowing smoothly, and the sound levels during the ceremony were good. (It was outside.) We haven’t seen the photos yet, so we can’t comment on the quality of the pictures. The photographers showed up on time, and one of them stayed later than the contract time. There were three photographers. They took charge before and after the ceremony. They were efficient and courteous.
The one area that could be improved is that I wish we had had someone to guide the timetable of events better. This was our first wedding and there wasn’t really anyone in charge of getting one event to flow into the next. At one point we were 35 minutes behind schedule! The DJ did well once an event started, but we didn’t have a lot of guidance on flowing from one event on the timetable to the next. This included the wedding rehearsal. It would have been helpful to have someone give us a little guidance in getting started and give us ideas on things we needed to consider since some of us had never had to rehearse for a wedding before or had not been in a wedding in a long time. However, all ended well and we had a fantastic time.
Over the next week friends and family commented on how well the wedding went, how great the food was and what a lovely event center we had chosen. I cannot agree more.”
“Madhoo and her staff just helped us host a huge Indian wedding for our daughter. It was a major event and they catered twice for us. One was preplanned and the other was almost unplanned. We were supposed to have the indian wedding at home however due to weather we had to move to Copper Leaf Event Center abruptly. Madhoo and her staff helped us immensely and made everything just beautiful along with delicious food.
All of our guests were treated with respect and lots of smile. Service was amazing. Food presentation was great as well. I do not have enough words to give praises to The Gourmet Kitchen Management and Staff. Food Indian and western were both amazing.
The care and warmth that went in towards our guests along with planning and executing both events were amazing, we highly recommend Madhu and her team for any event and especially for the important ones as the wedding.”
“The Gourmet Kitchen was amazing in all aspects of my wedding! Madhoo is so personable, professional, and knowledgeable of her specialty. She was always on top of things, even from the first phone call. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make our day the most amazing and stress free day! Of course there are wedding jitters, but those were my emotions to deal with. I had the utmost confidence in Madhoo’s ability to run the show smoothly. She made sure the groom and I had appetizers, so that we didn’t pass out before dinner! She sought us out to make sure we ate! Her staff was extremely courteous and professional, making sure every detail was perfect!
Madhoo was so pro-active, when more guests showed up than had rsvp’d. Madhoo immediately took over the situation and none of the guests were aware! She threw in extras for us, like homemade Chai (that I fell in love with) in my dressing room as I got ready. She made virgin margarita’s that were off the charts!
I cannot say enough about this amazing lady. I would recommend her services for ANY event!”
“Madhoo and her catering team at The Gourmet Kitchen did an amazing job. From the beginning, they blew the competition out of the water. She treated us like we were members of her family instead of just another customer. I told Madhoo about my style and she created a beautiful, creative, and amazingly delicious menu that our wedding guests are still talking about. I felt as if she could read my mind! Our best decision for our wedding was working with The Gourmet Kitchen. My husband and I were constantly amazed at the kindness, special touches, and over-the-top quality of their service. She even had a henna artist decorate our cake to match my elaborate and detailed personality. I would recommend The Gourmet Kitchen to anyone who wants the PERFECT menu for their special day. The quality and the service were superior in every way, and the cost was better than any of the other catering quotes we received. Must taste to believe!”
“This is a little delayed but I feel The Gourmet Kitchen well deserves the praise. My team and I planned a dinner night to serve about 100 ladies. It had lights, entertainment, and class. Needless to say, the food had to be excellent and I was working on a very tight budget. Madhoo worked with me to build a custom menu that not only satisfied the allergy and health preferences we had, but stuck to that budget. We had a full three course meal including salad, breadsticks, chicken picatta/mango black bean chicken/stuffed portabella mushrooms, risotto, steamed asparagus, and chocolate covered strawberries.
The ladies loved every bit of it! I tip my hat to Madhoo and her staff. Our order was anything but conventional and they handled our order very well and very professionally. There’s no doubt in my mind; if I ever need a Colorado caterer, I will look no further than The Gourmet Kitchen Catering.”
