Michelle from Main Event was leading the catering team for a wedding I was working on last Saturday and I was very impressed by the efficiency, excellent attitude and organization of her and her team, and the high quality of the food they provided. I got to taste it, and it was absolutely delicious! Moreover, they reacted quickly and effectively to a last minute change of location, due to rain, and were able to find a solution to accommodate all tables and chairs in a significantly smaller area, without stressing out about the situation. I look forward to working with them again in the future. I recommend MEC without reservations.
Main Events is a wonderful team to work with. They are always more than willing to be creative and make a menu/reception style that is exactly what the clients always dreamed of. They are always very punctual and professional which are very important qualities for a wedding vendor. I would recommend Main Events to any of my clients.
As a wedding/event designer it is of course very important to vet your vendors and find the perfect fit for your events. It is even better when you find those vendors and they work very hard to meet your needs and requirements with minimal difficulties.
From the second I contacted her Scotlyn was prompt, efficient, enthusiastic, and extremely helpful. She was supportive of our choices, even if they were unusual, and worked diligently to make sure that we had everything that my clients desired. Throughout all the designing and planning Scotlyn was always in contact, and she never balked, even when we made last minute changes that required her to change contractual elements, or send new estimates. She worked with us on every point and made suggestions that produced fabulous results that remained within our budget.
On the day of the event Scotlyn and her staff were amazing. Their professionalism and timeliness was absolutely necessary in order to work within the space and within our time constraints. They assisted me in many instances, and provided service above and beyond what is the usual expectation…even by honoring and assisting with some last minute request.
I cannot possibly say enough good things about MEC and their staff. I will most certainly recommend them to friends, family, and clients.. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
Every time I get information for an event I'm shooting and I see Main Event Caterers, I know everything is going to be ok. These guys are one of the very best caterers in town. And guess who's catering the wedding I'm shooting this weekend... See you guys in a couple days!
I have worked with the Main Event staff multiple times in the past 5 years and have truly enjoyed each and every special occasion that brings us together. Not only is the staff a delight to work with but the food is delicious! I recommend them to all my clients!
This weekend, we shot a beautifully themed garden wedding catered by Main Event Caterers at Oxon Hill Manor. The staff was magnificent and was very courteous to the guests and also to my staff as well. There were little tidbits throughout the day that seemed to make a difference such as one of the junior staff assisting an elderly person to the restroom, and even checking with us several times to ensure we were hydrated. It really made a difference for us. Would definitely love to work with Darcy and the staff there at Main Event again.
Absolutely wonderful!
All round great. Flexible, friendly, budget effective, great logisitical work. Food was awesome. Thank you. Toni Taylor, Wedding Planner, EverMoreEvents II
Absolutely delicious food, and great service!
Main Event always does beautiful and delicious events at the Lee-Fendall House. Their staff work incredibly hard to make sure each event is as wonderful as it can be!
Main Event Caterers are always a joy to work with. Their food is sublime, their staff are well mannered and helpful, and their corporate morals are admirable. I was particularly impressed when I saw them execute a "choice in advance" plated entree that left us ahead of schedule by the time they completed service. As a timeline-obsessed planner, nothing makes me happier than being on time!
We've worked with Main Event Caterers multiple times and their service + food is INCREDIBLE. Their dishes are absolutely delicious and their staff is top-notch. We always look forward to working with them!
Main Event Caterers are wonderful to work with. Clients always feel well taken care of and food is amazing. They should be on the top your list for your wedding needs.
Main Event is, without a doubt, one of the very best caterers in the DC region. We do several weddings with them every year and the food and service are always outstanding. Their event managers are very organized and really know their stuff -- highly recommend!
As the director of events at Top of the Town I see a lot of events.
I can say without reservation Main Event is excellent and I have never had anything from them I didn't like!
We love working with Main Event Caterers! They are flexible and accommodating to our clients. Their professionalism and knowledge are unparalleled.
