ABOUT US We love weddings. We love them big and fancy or sweet and simple. We love brides who agonize over the size of their train, their pearls and their bouquets and we love brides who call up and say, “Let’s have a clambake at my dad’s beach house!” Celebrate everything—family reunions, birthdays, bridal and baby showers, anniversaries, retirement parties and just plain why-not? parties. Whether the whole clan is getting together for a long weekend or you’re having a sit down dinner for 20 just to honor some long and beautiful friendships, let us make the party that suits you. Big business or small, your business matters to us. Picnics to celebrate, retreats to refuel, dinners to reward. From an all-american barbecue to a black tie dinner, there’s nothing we won’t do to make your business better….and delicious. To book a holiday party click here! WE’RE GREEN. We’re not perfect but we try and we are committed to recycling—not just bottles and cans. Composting—we turn our eggshells, fruit peels and vegetable scraps into more vitamin-enriched soil to use in our herb gardens for the spring. WE’RE COMMITTED. We support a variety of not-for-profit organizations in our community: Warm Shelter, Westerly Women and Family Life, Guilford Child and Family Agencies Hispanic Alliance, New London Visiting Nurses of SE CT, Waterford New London Rotary WE’RE EXPERIENCED. Twenty years worth of custom events—country picnics to drop-dead chic weddings, business openings to family reunions and sophisticated cocktail parties for 300—where we will provide all the trimmings from napkins to twinkling lights and we don’t go home until the perfect party is complete.

XO I see GG often at weddings I officiate, and I will be sure to refer you to my couples…glowingly! With deep appreciation. ”Cyndi Clark, “Keri’s responsiveness gave this out-of-towner confidence that we would be taken care of, & the rest of the staff reinforced that throughout. For a client initially suspicious of caterers (preferring restaurants), this was a very positive experience. Thank you!”Heidi Sauser, “Many people have told me it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding, and some said it was the best of the specific dishes they’ve ever had ever! Beautiful”, “Gourmet Galley was a pleasure (and a relief) to work with! From the initial meeting to the clean up of the last dish, everything was handled professionally, aesthetically, and deliciously! I couldn’t be more pleased! Thank you for making Shawn’s shower such a success.”, “We had GG cater our rehearsal, wedding reception and brunch and they were all fantastic! The food and service were great. We couldn’t have asked for better food or more professional staffing at our events. Thank you again!”, “I can’t thank you and your team enough for such a fabulous event. Everything from start to finish was perfect. The entire crew was helpful, flexible and professional throughout the day. It truly was an incredible day for Marianne, Sophia and their guests. I hope that we can work together soon and please do not hesitate to use me as a reference. “Derrik Wynkoop, “The menu was creatively crafted and had a variety of tastes to meet the needs of a diverse dinner party. All ingredients were fresh and prepared to order at our home. And we even had delicious leftovers the next day! I’ve already booked Gourmet Galley for next year.” GET IN TOUCH Please include your event date, number of guests and any additional information.
