    Exceeded Expectations

    If you want to remove stress from your wedding planning call 31 North and let Bernice and her team work do their job. 5 STARS all around and this is coming from someone that was extremely concerned (borderline paranoid). I needlessly lost sleep. Bernice, Amanda and the entire 31 North team just blew us away with their service, attention to details and quality of food. Every "I" was dotted. Every "T" was crossed. Every promise was met. The wedding was at an off-site venue without a kitchen. The food had to be delivered 20 miles. This isn't easy. They achieved what I thought was impossible. Despite the logistical travel obstacles everything was exceptional at ALL levels - grazing table, cold hors d'oeuvres, hot hors d'oeuvres, salad, filet, chicken, sides, desserts and the late night taco bar. Words can't begin to explain our level of satisfaction. I had several people tell me "best wedding food I've ever." The bar service was outstanding as well. The team even delivered on a last minute request from the Bride to have a Signature Drink. Since the groom is from San Diego, we had several Californian's in attendance. The team delivered on having the Groom's Signature Drink with an IPA from So Cal. Again, kudos to the 31 North team. You played a big part in a magical wedding day.

    Sincerely, Dan Ritchie

    Fabulous , magical

    I just have to say we had our wedding here at 31 North on September 9th 2022 and we had an amazing time. Everyone that came said this was one of the best weddings we have ever been to. Everyone said the food was out of this world. The team that was there that night was Tina鈥檚 team they all were amazing on top it all night. Her team made sure we had what we needed and was amazing. We will definitely hold a event here again in the future. Bernice thank you and Tina鈥檚 team for making our night magical. See u in the future..
    thank you again The Egan鈥檚
