    Abbey Event Planning and Catering

    We were skeptical after reading all the rave reviews for Abbey Catering and Event Design. How can they possibly earn straight 5s, consistently over the years? After hosting a wedding for our daughter, we see that the awards and rave reviews are well deserved. Many of our guests noted that it was the most enjoyable wedding they had ever attended. The professionals and vendors in the All-inclusive Abbey Package care about working together as a team to create an amazing event. Senior consultant Petr Trebin was assigned as our planner and coordinator and he was clearly the star of the Abbey experience. He managed all the moving parts with great skill and calm. He is experienced and knowledgeable. His artistic background helped our daughter choose the final design elements for the event and his management expertise helped with all the details of coordinating with the venue and vendors. He was also available to kindly answer our many questions and concerns in the days leading up to the wedding date. For rehearsal of the ceremony the day before the event, he skillfully and patiently taught our large group of twenty, including children, what to do. During the actual event, he energetically managed everything. His confidence and serene demeanor helped us relax as he handled the many details.

    The reception food and service were also top-notch. The couple chose several tray-passed hors d'oeuvres served during the cocktail hour. They were delicious works of art on a plate. The cocktails were also noted as being especially well-crafted and served by skilled and friendly bartenders. The bride and groom even created his and her signature drinks to feature for the guests from the silver bar plan. The salad and duo entrees chosen to be served by the couple for dinner were all impressive. Many guests shared compliments. Wedding food sometimes tends to be dull, being served in a large group, but Abbey is an exception. The Abbey chefs presented creative menus and tasty dishes for all, including our vegan guests and even special meals for the children.

    We also appreciated that the All-inclusive Abbey Package offered such great value for the price. We were surprised how much we could include in our wedding budget in comparison to the others we researched. Unlike other companies, they do not charge hidden costs that pop up later. The cake cutting, the corkage fees, and coffee service, etc. were all included. We are more than pleased with our choice of Abbey Event Designs and Catering to host our daughter's wedding event. We are happy we did the research and discovered the best!

    My dream wedding came true!

    I cannot say enough great things about the Abbey!!! Everyone we worked with was accommodating, kind, responsive and understanding — especially when we had to change our wedding date three times due to the pandemic! We specifically worked with Petr throughout the process who ended up being my month and day of coordinator. Petr was always available to answer my questions and made me feel so taken care of. We purchased the all inclusive package with the Abbey and all of the vendors we used were amazing!! They all worked so well together and you can tell they really love what they do. Petr made our wedding day go off without a hitch. He made my dreams come true and then some with his eye for design and executed my vision flawlessly!! Everything about our day was perfect thanks to him. I am still in awe by how perfect it was.
