    Debbi from Lafayette Hill

    The Crystal Tea Room and Finley Catering went far beyond our expectations. We knew the venue was beautiful but had no idea how incredible the food would be. Raves from all of our guests. Michelle and Miguel worked tirelessly to make my daughter’s vision come true. They were flexible and responsive and made us all feel
    special and important through the entire process and especially the night of the wedding. I recommend them 100%!!

    Outstanding!

    Last Saturday evening was our children’s wedding at the Crystal Tea Room and we were thrilled with the reception! Everything about the evening was amazing, magical, memorable, delicious, fun and exciting! Amy and Josh did a superb job in organizing their special celebration and we were confident that all of their dreams, efforts and hopes would come true. They kept telling us how great the Crystal Tea Room was as a venue and all of the details for the ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner and after-party. However, nothing could have prepared us for what we actually experienced last Saturday evening. The venue was beyond beautiful; the food was plentiful and varied; the drinks flowed all evening and all of our guests had a wonderful time feting Amy and Josh on their wedding evening in grand celebratory style! We’ve been to dozens of weddings and other receptions all over the country. The Crystal Tea Room and Finley Catering is by far the best we have ever experienced! The quality and value of your services are unparalleled.

    As important as the venue, food and drink are to a wedding reception...it is the staff who really make the wedding “rock.” Once again and simply stated...the Finley Catering staff were remarkable! They were easy to work with; caring and attentive to every detail; helpful and courteous. Miguel was exceptional and made sure that the entire evening was everything Amy and Josh wanted it to be. He was always present with a smile, asking if we needed anything and if we were having a great time! His wait, service and bar staff exemplary, too! We were so very fortunate to have Miguel as our Banquet Manager for the wedding!

    We will be more than happy to offer our recommendation to any potential client considering Finley Catering and the Crystal Tea Room! Thank you very much for making our children’s wedding so wonderful!

    Yours truly,

    Elliot & Sharon K.
