    Delicious and so accommodating!

    We can’t say enough good things about our experience with Chive, who catered our rehearsal dinner at a family house near Boston. First, the food was just incredible. The appetizers, meal, desserts, and drinks were all just fabulous - so high quality and delicious without being overdone. Secondly, the team was so accommodating, flexible, and friendly. Our transportation to the rehearsal dinner was a nightmare and most of us arrived about an hour late. The Chive team flexed their whole timeline to keep the food warm, and kept everyone calm in the meantime. Their team was so lovely and it was so special to have them as a part of our evening.

    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!

    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!
