My planners Alicia and Hannah have helped design a wedding event that I can't wait for. They have been easy to work with, dealt with 100's of questions, and even provided assistance in guiding me towards catering & event design within my budget. I'd recommend locals and out of towners to book Duvall Events as soon as they begin the planning process!
I absolutely LOVED working with Ashlyn from Duvall - she did an amazing job with the flowers and decor for my recent wedding. I don't live in Charleston (I'm from Raleigh) and received a recommendation from a friend to work with Duvall and I'm so happy I did. Ashlyn was not only a pleasure to work with, she made the process so easy for me - even from 4 hours away! She knew exactly what look I wanted (nautical) and for the flowers -- I showed her a picture of what I wanted for my bridal bouquet and it was even more beautiful than the sample in the picture. On our wedding day, South Carolina had a 1,000 year flood and was under water, but Ashlyn walked through waist deep water to make it to our wedding -- now that is dedication! I am so thankful and grateful to her for making my wedding so incredibly beautiful with the flowers and decor. I highly recommend Duvall to any and all brides out there!
Duvall provided both catering and bar services for us. The minute we sat down for a tasting I knew we chose the right vendor. I briefly did some time in culinary school and am very picky about quality and food presentation. Duvall went above and beyond! The even slightly customized our choices to really fit our theme and make it personal to our wedding- example: they spruced up our shrimp and grits appetizer to add chorizo (our favorite) and even served it in mini mason jars to fit the southern theme of our wedding. Our entrees we just as customized to our liking and guests raved about the food!! My favorite part of everything was the 5 star presentation (I'm not sure if all seated dinners are like this but I loved it!)- they had all of their servers line up to serve each table at one time. So basically unveiling entrees and the same time for each person at the table. Loved that! Duvall also gave us two cake tastings to try and get the cake flavors exactly to our liking- even opening up on a Saturday (when their location is normally closed for events) to work with us. This review may seem like we are high maintenance but that is really not it-- Duvall combined with our wedding planner asked every detail while at the tasting so they could get it just right!!!
Working with Duvall made my wedding beautiful, fun and stress-free. The food was incredible and the service exceptional. If you want a perfect wedding go with Duvall.
Duvall helped us plan a wedding rehearsal dinner for 115 people and then we let them do the work while we enjoyed the evening. We look forward to using them for other events.
Duvall really knows how to take care of their brides and grooms. We used them for so many important details of our wedding including day of coordination, décor/floral, and catering. I cannot tell you how many compliments we got in each of these areas. Our day of coordinator was so on top of every detail that by the time the wedding day arrived, we literally did not have to worry about a thing. The order of events for the evening from introductions to the sparkler exit flowed seamlessly. The food stations tasted AMAZING and my big Midwestern family could not stop complimenting the shrimp and grits and crab cake sliders. Our décor coordinator took the vision I had in my head (but could barely describe) about the look and feel I wanted to try and create and turned it into a beautiful reality. The flowers were incredible as well and they even created me a little floral accent for my hair that they delivered to the hotel I was getting ready at earlier in the day. Duvall took care of everything which left my husband and I free to completely enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about a thing. Can't thank them enough for that!!
Both Alicia (catering/ rentals) was amazing to work with! Communication in preparation for the wedding was open, quick, and consistent throughout the entire wedding process! The food was absolutely amazing and the rentals (tables, chairs, linens, silverware, etc.) and bar were exactly what we needed! Alicia worked with me to create a perfect menu for my guests with various options that fit my budget. I began working with Ashlyn midway through the planning process and she had some really awesome ideas for decor and lighting- I still cannot get over how perfect the lace-wrapped arbor and chandelier looked during the ceremony and the reception looked amazing with the setup/ design and lighting!! I highly recommend Duvall- their service and product are both exceptional!!!
We had quite a pleasant experience having Duvall cater my daughter’s wedding reception. From the initial phone call to Alicia through the wedding day, she gave us outstanding customer service and we couldn't have asked for better communication. The food, including appetizers and the meal, was excellent and our guests raved about it during and after the wedding. We also used Duvall for décor and Ashlynn made our vision come to life. My daughter was in awe when she walked into the reception and saw how Ashlynn had worked her magic on the room. The appetizer plate for the groom during photos was a lifesaver, and the bridal basket after the reception was most appreciated. All in all, we were very happy in choosing Duvall!
Duvall catered our reception and it was absolutely delicious! I couldn't imagine everything tasting any better! Highly recommend!
I cannot say enough incredible things about Duvall Events! We met with the Event Manager, Emma Lesesne, back in March, and also met Hannah Archer who was in charge of decor. From day one they were just awesome to deal with. We tried the food and it was honestly worthy of any top-notch restaurant in Charleston. The entire Duvall team followed up with us routinely and really helped make our wedding outstanding. Zoe Parry (wedding coordinator) was absolutely great and she helped get all of our vendors organized for the big day. Her assistant, Madison, was a huge help too. Duvall also helped with lighting, rentals, tables, outdoor planters, etc. for the ceremony, as well as boutonnieres.
We also had Duvall's new pastry chef, Ginny, make our cake and some bowtie cookies for the big day. We gave her some cake ideas we liked and she surprised us with an exceptional cake, and she spent 7 hours on the cookies (which were a HUGE hit)!
Duvall may be a bit more expensive than some other caterers/event planners in Charleston, but they are worth EVERY PENNY!
Duvall's Amanda McCarthy helped orchestrate our dream wedding this past Saturday (7.11.15) at the Confederate Home and College. From the venue, to my bouquet and her impeccable wedding coordinating, not a single detail was overlooked by Duvall's Amanda and her team. What I appreciated the most about Amanda was that even though it was a destination wedding, when we first met in person a few days prior to the ceremony, it felt as if we had been friends for years. With her top-notch attentiveness and spot-on intuition, she understood immediately the elegant, understated celebration we hoped to paint for our guests. I also highly recommend the beautiful Confederate Home and College for any serene outdoor wedding. While we'll always remember the Charleston humidity of our wedding day, we will equally remember Amanda's cool, calm demeanor which allowed everyone to stay relaxed and enjoy the celebration. Thank you Amanda and Duvall!
I'm the mother of the groom, and Shannan Caldwell with Duvall Events handled heavy hors d'oeuvres for our Thursday night welcome as well as the rehearsal dinner at Charleston Distilling Co. in downtown Charleston, SC. Duvall's Hannah Archer headed up decor for the dinner. (This dynamic duo then did the wedding and reception on Saturday, too.) My husband and I have been inundated with comments about how incredible everything was -- from the food to the flowers to bar service. Duvall's attention to detail impressed even the admittedly intense and obsessive planner in me! I cannot find fault with a single element of their performance. Highly recommended!
I was the mother of the bride for a destination wedding at Sullivan's Island with the reception in Mt. PLeasant, SC. Duvall Catering handled florals at the church, and florals, decor and food at the reception. Our guests raved about the food, and we we so happy with the florals and decor. The team prepared a special meal of my husband and myself to enjoy due to personal dietary restrictions, which was absolutely yummy! I highly recommend Duvall Catering, and Shannan Caldwell, too!
Duvall exceeded every expectation we had by leaps and bounds. They were so accommodating during the planning process and made me feel as though we were the only wedding they had. The day of blew us away. The decor, flowers and food/bar were perfect. The guests have raved about everything. Thanks for making our day so special!
With DuVall everything was done to perfection! EVERYTHING!!!
The food was delicious. We had so many compliments from our guests. I have been to many wedding receptions and have never had food this good. The presentation was exactly as we wanted. The wait and bar staff were great. They were as good at the end of the night as they were in the beginning. Always professional, smiling and tending the needs/requests of the guests.
Duvall helped make our daughters' wedding perfect.
We were able to use Duvall for just about everything for our wedding! We were lucky enough to have Isabelle as our event coordinator. She is so great and helpful and made the whole process so much less stressful! We used Duvall for our food, bar, dessert, decor, flowers, lighting, rentals, and AV equipment. Everything was wonderful and the food and dessert was so good! Our guests were so impressed with the dinner and cake! Duvall helped make our dream wedding a reality.
