“One of the highlights of my wedding weekend was the rehearsal dinner—in large part because of the excellent catering provided by RAYN. We wanted a laidback vibe, and RAYN helped us make that happen every step of the way. In planning, Saiqa was very quick to respond to emails and had great ideas for the menu and how to serve a large group quickly and seamlessly (pre-ordered meals with labels by guest name!). The night of our dinner, chef Josh set the tone with his friendly nature, and Kaitlyn provided amazing service. And of course, the food itself (those fall-off-the-bone chicken “wangs”!) was next level. I’m so grateful for this excellent experience—one that I never had to stress about at all! That’s invaluable for any bride.”
"The food prepared by Chef Josh and Saiqa at RAYN Events & Catering was amazing. We had a company social event catered and everything was laid out on time, expertly prepared and presented, as well tasted amazing. I would highly recommend RAYN Events & Catering to anyone!"

"From the very moment I started planning our event with RAYN to the final clean up - they nailed it! They delivered the exact chef experience we were looking for - they were prepared, the food was amazing, it was fun and interactive. Saiqa and Chef Josh are a pleasure to be around - they were flexible and also guided the evening along, letting the whole experience be the showcase to bring friends together!"

INTERACTIVE CHEF EXPERIENCE
"I wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to the team at RAYN Events & Catering, for going above and beyond on our wedding day. The food was amazing and the staff was so so amazing - more than we could have ever asked for. Everyone made it easy and just helped take care of all those little things, it was so appreciated. Chef Josh, Saiqa, and the rest of the team were so easy to work with and brought a wealth of knowledge and skill to help us bring together our big day.
I would highly recommend RAYN to anyone and everyone! Again, I don't think I can share the words exactly to let you know how grateful and pleased we were with everything, but you and the team truly elevated our entire experience.
Thank you for everything - we couldn't have done it without you!"

"RAYN Events & Catering are the Masters of catering! I was blown away by their attention to detail regarding my request for healthy alternatives and the positive attitude and warmth from both Josh and Saiqa.
Working long hours on a film set and being able to eat delicious healthy food, helped my crew and cast stay alert! Brilliant job! All film sets should hire RAYN Events & Catering for their craft services!"
10 DAY CRAFT SERVICES
“RAYN Events & Catering was perfect for our casual rehearsal dinner, before our wedding! Saiqa worked with us to develop a menu and provided us with several options - which was much appreciated given our busy schedule. Pick up was easy and located in the Picton area. Everyone raved about how delicious the meals provided by Chef Josh & his team were. Sauces and flavours were perfectly balanced keeping our guests coming back for more. I would highly recommend RAYN to anyone in the PEC area who is looking for a great caterer!
Thanks again RAYN”
casual REHEARSAL DINNER
“RAYN Events & Catering went above and beyond our expectations! We hosted a welcome dinner for students and teachers participating in a Come Alive Outside Design Challenge under a park pavilion and RAYN Events and Catering made the dinner the success it was! They had a beautiful natural fall display that really made it feel like more than a meal but an atmosphere.
Everyone we worked with was amazing from communication in the planning stage to details in the layout! Would definitely recommend!”
"We hired Rayn Events to cater our wedding - the venue we chose was new and not *quite* ready for a wedding. Saiqa and Josh were so flexible and accommodating, working within the available structures (including a bit-too-small oven) to provide a delicious dinner for our guests.
The food was phenomenal. Even as the bride and very much all over the place during dinner, I made sure to sit down to eat, it was just that good. The staff were amazing, ensuring that everyone had what they needed. The bartender went above and beyond when one of my bridesmaids got heat stroke.

WEDDING @ WAUPOOS ISLAND
I loved everything about working with Saiqa and Josh - there were the best choice and, if I ever host another event in the area, they’ll be the first people I call to cater."
"The folks at RAYN catered our intimate wedding. Saiqa was friendly, relaxed, and accommodating throughout the two months we exchanged emails and planned our event. She never hesitated to help out with any allergies or sensitivities, and was happy to make a few last minute changes. On the day of our wedding, Chef Josh and Saiqa arrived early, set up a lovely service area, and kept in mind our rustic, relaxed vibe when presenting the food. And the food! Amazing! Every time I speak with a guest about the wedding, the first thing they mention is the food! The chicken, pulled pork, and beef brisket were perfect! Another thing guests mention is how friendly and easy to talk to both Chef Josh and Saiqa were. Thank you for helping create an amazing night!"

WEDDING @ Compass rose
"We had such a great experience with Saiqa and Chef Josh. We hired RAYN Events & Catering to cater our annual company Christmas party of 70 people with both adults and children attending. They were very accommodating to all diets and allergies, and even prepared a plain 'kids' option for those who might be a bit picky. Our employees and their families could not stop raving about the food and have even asked where they are located so they can go back on their own! The catering process was smooth and well-organized. They even decorated their food tables with event themed decorations and presented the food wonderfully. 100% we will use them again."
CORPORATE SOCIAL AFFAIR
"RAYN stole the show at our big event--everyone at our event couldn't stop raving about how good the food was. We even had another smaller event the next month, and several guests came excited assuming we'd be using them again! Serious disappointment. We won't make that mistake again! They will definitely be servicing our next event."

PRIVATE SOCIAL AFFAIR
"Chef Josh & Saiqa created a beautiful dinner for our Bachelorette party. The food was so delicious especially the local charcuterie, beef brisket, and jerk chicken. There was special attention to detail with decorative flowers, fine dishes, linens, etc. Correspondence was easy over email. They arrived promptly for set-up time. Food was hot and in generous portions. But mostly they were kind, friendly and a joy to have in our home."

“It was an incredible pleasure to have RAYN cater for my wife’s birthday. The pulled pork and chicken were delicious! The charcuterie board was artistically done & the customer service Chef Josh and Saiqa give is outstanding. We will proudly call on them again!”
