BTU was so great to work with! We had our ceremony and reception at Artisanworks so they were the perfect choice.

Rich was very professional and accommodating. We went back and forth over the menu several times until he was able to create just what we were looking for and stay within our budget.

I highly recommend them.

BTU Events (aka Celebrate Events) bartended for our wedding. They provided an incredible (top shelf) bar at a fraction of the cost other catering companies were asking. They were professional, and gave our guests outstanding service. Any changes we wanted to make to our menu, they were happy to accommodate. They provided alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages (our wedding was on a very hot summer day and they totally took care of making water bottles abundantly available to everyone), 2 professionally dressed and skilled bartenders (guests said they were very competent in making cocktails), and glassware. They are licensed and insured, as well, which was a necessity for our venue Hurd Orchards.
