    A wonderful experience!

    We got married a couple of weeks ago and are still hearing about how fun, inventive and delicious the Bartleby & Sage food was at our wedding. We had a cocktail style event and their assortment of passed plates was exciting for our guests and certainly served as a form of entertainment. Guests are still raving about the s'mores and edible spoons! We also worked with Stacey as our day of coordinator. This is possibly one of the best decisions we made throughout our process. Stacey was not only calming and a steady rock for us through any challenging moments, but she is also hilarious and kind, always there to help in a graceful manner. She made the day of feel truly effortless for us and our families and we are so grateful for that peace of mind! We feel so fortunate to have worked with this team.

    Fantastic!

    Bartleby & Sage were a pleasure to work with and made our wedding very special. The food and service was excellent, they were clear in their pricing, flexible and delivered more than what they promised.

    Our wedding co-ordinator Stacey Thorp was absolutely magnificent and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She was a superstar.

    The New York wedding scene can be hard to navigate and a bit of a lottery. We feel lucky to have found them.

    Professional and intuitive

    We were incredibly impressed with the level of professionalism and knowledge Stacey and Leslie provided us. Our wedding was on a tight time frame and the two of them were completely unfazed by it. They never overwhelmed us, but also ensured that everything was being decided at the appropriate time. We loved their recommendations and - even more - we loved how the two of them seemed to understand what we were after and act on that. I'd recommend them to any friend in a heartbeat. Stacey and Leslie are rock stars!
