  • Historic Rural Hill Banquet Halls

    Tara and her team are extremely friendly, easy to work with...and the food is AMAZING. I highly recommend her to my clients.

  • Next Level Band of Charlotte Wedding Bands

    Extremely professional and food is delicious!

  • Lisa Pleasant Events Wedding Planners

    Tara is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is one of the fastest vendors to respond, both throughout the planning process and at the event. She is very detail-oriented and truly cares about making her clients happy. The food? AMAZING!! The most recent wedding we did together was an Indian buffet, and it came out authentically fantastic. Her service is first class; I love the fact that she designates a server specifically to take care of the bride and groom throughout the evening. Tara is without doubt a team player. If another vendor needs something done in order for the night to run smoothly, she is on top of it in a flash. She bends over backwards to accommodate her clients and leaves an outstanding impression on everyone she meets. I am very much looking forward to our next event together!
