My wife and I got married at Shining Tides in August and given that Russell Morin is the exclusive caterer of Shining Tides, we had the extremely good fortune to work with Krista, Yasmin and the entire Russell Morin team! There are so many reasons you would be making the right decision in choosing Russell Morin as your caterer but let's start with the most obvious one: the FOOD. When I say the food knocked our socks off, I mean it wholeheartedly. Being two food-lovers, the food for our guests was extremely important to us for the big day. Needless to say, when we went to our tasting with Russell Morin, it completely affirmed what we already believed to be the case; the hors d'oeuvres not only looked amazing, but also tasted amazing (we had mini fish tacos, arancini, "big mac" beef wellingtons, and lobster chips, among other amazing passed items), the mains were perfectly cooked as well, and the dessert options were equally delicious and so artfully made. Our guests were raving about the food all night!
Then of course, there's the staff, who were absolutely amazing. Krista at Russell Morin was a dream to work with leading up to the wedding; she is kind, helpful, detail-oriented and deeply invested in making sure everything goes off without a hitch! Her and Elizabeth from Shining Tides worked very well together and made us feel totally at ease in the months leading up to the big day. Similarly, Yasmin, our day-of-coordinator, was just as wonderful to work with and worked tirelessly both before and throughout the big day to make sure everything ran seamlessly. And lastly, the entire Russell Morin catering staff was so great. Having worked in catering myself, I know it can be a stressful, fast-paced and at times thankless job, and we were just so impressed and humbled by how kind, efficient and professionally they all worked throughout the night.
Our Russell Morin wedding attendant, Judy, was constantly checking in to make sure that both ourselves and our immediate family had all the drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts we could handle, and it just meant a lot to us to be able to say hi to all of our guests while still being able to enjoy the amazing food and drinks we had picked out. All of this is to say, going with Russell Morin will be the best wedding vendor decision you could make and we truly could not be happier that we had the chance to work with Russell Morin!!!
