Worlds beyond our expectations...
To say that Chive Events created for us the wedding of our dreams doesn't quite capture our joy and delight. The Chive team put together for us a day that was worlds beyond our expectations. It was absolutely incredible! Our wedding and reception was in the backyard at my parents' home. Chive transformed the property into a magical wedding wonderland; the flowers and signs and decor were perfect; the food was truly unreal it was so so delicious; the team was on the ball all night, helpful and attentive and cheerful; details large and small were thoughtfully considered and totally covered; we and our families were treated to top notch service and attention; and because of all that, we were relaxed, happy, and left with not a thing to do or worry about except to celebrate and soak up every last ounce of that incredible day. We can't begin to thank Chive for all that they have done to make our wedding truly perfect. After the wedding we heard from friends and family that the food was hands down the best they have had, and that ours was the most beautifully executed wedding they have attended. I so truly enjoyed the whole process of planning my wedding and that is in large part because of that first smart decision that I made at the beginning - the decision to hire Chive!Sent on 11/21/2018

We loved working with the Chive. Holly, Jen, and Lizzie were wonderful, from our initial meeting all the way through the wedding day. We talked to them about our (very vague) vision and elements that we thought we might like to incorporate, and they worked nothing short of magic to build on that and bring it to life. We loved the centerpieces, and also especially loved the design they came up with for the fireplace, which was a subtle nod to our engagement story. Our only regret is that we weren't able to take the time to appreciate everything in person as much in the craziness of the actual wedding day - but we love how they look in photos too! The Chive's team was flexible, communicative, and a pleasure to work with, and we loved their mindfulness of sustainability in all of their work. We can't thank them enough and wholeheartedly recommend the Chive!Sent on 09/25/2018

My daughter wanted a tented wedding reception on a beautiful property on Cape Cod overlooking the bay. The property owners were the first to recommend Chive for the event. They had had a previous wonderful experience with Chive and loved not only the beautiful event they arranged, but also how careful and respectful of their property they were.Sent on 07/02/2017
We absolutely loved working with Lindsey and Jen right from the start. My daughter and her fiance met with them and they immediately understood what they wanted the event to look and feel like...and best of all the end result exceeded our expectations ..because they added fun things (like an outdoor bar lounge seating area!) that enhanced the whole experience.
Jen was attentive to every detail..like the flowers, sunset colored peonies with succulent accents, that were simply amazing! And still, she was ultimately flexible to allow us to have some special things we wanted to bring in, and catering to my husband's somewhat quirky food preferences! Speaking of food..it was spectacular..from the passed hor d'oeuvres through the scrumptious cakes (my daughter did not want a wedding cake, but a variety of cakes) everything was local/seasonal and delicious!
Finally, I have to commend Jen on her day of event presence. She had her eye on everything and stepped in to make sure everyone had a great time..several of our guests thought she was part of our family...because that's how she acted..
So, I would highly recommend Chive for any event you would like to turn out perfect...because it will!
Thank you Chive!
Chive Events are so inspired, we love having them at the museum. Not only is their design lovely and their food delicious, but the entire staff is patient, calm, and skilled. They make catering into an art form.
