Experience with Off the Vine Catering?

I'm trying to find an affordable caterer for my wedding, and I really like Holly at Off the Vine in Brighton. (I can't afford Cuisine Chez Vous and some of the others mentioned here.)

No reviews or mentions of them on CHOW or on yelp, so I wanted to see if any of you have been to any of their events, or have heard anything about them. Checking the references doesn't help much, since they aren't going to have me contact someone who was unhappy.

Thanks in advance for your help!

    Holly and the crew at OTV were awesome. From the planning and listening to our
    preferences, to staffing the event, to preparing delicious food
    for which we got rave reviews from our guests, everything went beyond our expectations. Wish I could get married again just to use them! Good luck-

      Thanks so much for the response - this makes me feel so much better. I would love to hear what specifically you had on your menu, and if there is anything you would change? Thanks in advance!

      I met the owners a little while back, early January or late December (can't recall exactly), and they were very polite. I wanted to utilize their services to cater the Christmas party for my former company, unfortunately things fell through on my end (the party became more of a potluck, but it was still a ball). What they offered sounded very appealing, but I am interested to hear about other people's experience with the company. Best of luck in your search and congrats on the wedding!

        I knew Holly and Darren when they were with Creative Gourmet. They both have considerable experience and Darren is an excellent chef. I would think you would be in very good hands with them.
