EXCELLENT SERVICE FROM START TO FINISH, WE LOVED IT!!!
Doris planned, decorated, cooked, mentored, and was very professional at all times. Anytime we needed to make changes she was informative and helped us make the sensable decisions that was appropiate for us and our guest. Everything was perfect and we felt like we didin't have to worry and we didn't worry. Provisions by Doris was GREAT!
Doris was very helpful. She told me everything would be taken care of and it was!
I think a 5.0 is the highest. I would give Doris a 10.00 all the way.Pure pleasure to work with and totlally professional and efficient! Could not ask for better!
Doris Trotty of Provisions by Doris did an absolutely wonderful, special service for us when she helped me plan our Christmas party. She sat down and helped me plan the menu, where to place the buffet tables, what serving dishes to use, and then provided me with a complete list of both her duties and mine. Doris even brought many of her own serving dishes, tablecloths, and Christmas decorations for the buffet tables. She and her helper, Beth, were so efficient and even made me get out of the kitchen and enjoy our guests, something I've never felt comfortable doing. It was amazing to be able to visit with our guests while Doris and Beth served appetizers, replenished dishes and trays, and cleaned up everything, and I mean everthing, afterwards. I'm grateful to the two of them for a wonderful party.
Wow, what a busy year 2009 was for our family, having two brides! Wedding #2 took place on October 17. Having worked with Doris on my first daughter's wedding in January, she was the first call we made as we began planning for October. I truly do not believe we could have pull it off without her. Laura Beth received her engagement ring in March and we quickly began making plans. This wedding would be very different from the first--and more complicated, as this bride wanted to have the reception at our home. We met with Doris at our home. Because of her experience with such events, she was able to create traffic patterns throughout our home with would allow the guests to be served quickly and move freely. Within a few weeks, she had compared pricing on rentals and catering. A month later, we had most all vendors lined up and initial contracts signed. We were able to spend the summer months concentrating on bridal teas and showers. As time grew near to the wedding and the 10 day forecast came in view, we became aware that October 17 was expected to have record cold temperatures. Fortunately, we could seat approximately 80 indoors, along with the food and wedding cake. However, the dance floor and additional 100 seats were outdoors. We had to make plans to "warm the great outdoors". Once again, Doris went to work. She was able to find sides for the tent at a minimal cost through a separate vendor as the initial vendor's bid was extremely high. On the day the tent was delivered, she was at our home to make sure of its placement and to see that all was in order. As the tent was being set, we spent the time assembling punch and relaxing before the big day. The next morning, Oct 16, Doris was at my house once more, hooking sides on the tent and making final preparations. October 17 came. Excitement was in the air. Doris arrived at 4pm with the reception targeted to begin at 7:30. With the reception at your home, many things can go wrong. The florist had to make final touches, the wedding cake had to be delivered, the caterer had to complete her display, the DJ had to set up, along with last minute details. As I sat in the pew at the wedding, I had complete confidence that all would be fine. The wedding was beautiful. With the help of heaters, coffee and sufficient warm spots, the reception was wonderful. The guests danced til midnight and we had to push the bride and groom out the door. It was a great time. But, the greatest pleasure came a few days afterward when Laura Beth called to thank us,for it was the wedding she had always dreamed of. Thank you, Doris! Tonya Brown
Provisions by Doris did such an amazing job helping me plan my wedding! It was so great to have someone so professional to help make sure we both stayed on top of things together and that everything on our special day went perfect! She is very dependable and I would love to recommend her to assist with any special event!
I am so thankful that we found Doris in planning my daughter's wedding in January. I have to say that I knew nothing about planning a wedding. It was my intent to organize everything all on my own. During the process, I met Doris. She took my ideas and put them into action. She worked tireless hours researching the best rates for rentals, etc. She also coordinated the dj, caterer and vendors. I learned quickly to turn things over to Doris; she always saw things through. On wedding day, I was able to relax and enjoy the day with my daughter. The wedding went perfectly--it was a wonderful event. Doris is knowledgable, professional, personable and trustworthy. At the end of the Jan wedding, I had a new friend! When daughter #2 set her wedding date for Oct, 2009, I immediately called Doris. We are currently working on our second wedding. Doris is very mindful of the uniqueness of each wedding and does not simply try to "recreate" the same event. This daughter's wedding will look very different from the first and match this daughter's personality. I highly recommend her to anyone. Doris is truly remarkable at everything she does.
Doris made my wedding the fabulous event it was. She listened to me describe what I had in mind and took care of all the annoying little details, leaving me free to make the important decisions and enjoy the entire experience. There was not one aspect of the wedding that Doris did not help me with. Everyone in the planning process agreed that without Doris we would have done 100% more work and wasted a lot of our time and money. I cannot stress enough how very valuable her services are to any event! -Lynda Love
Doris is the consumate professional. She assured that everything was taken care of, which was one less worry for me. I had full confidence in her abilities and as usual she delivered. Our reception was beautiful, it went smoothly & everyone had a wonderful time...great memories! I would use her services again without hesitation and recommend her to anyone planning an event.
