    The venue that my wife and I got married at listed Culinary Eye as one of their preferred vendors.
    We met with John and expressed to him what our vision was for the wedding, rustic chic, garden chic, casual and he put together a menu that fit our theme.

    Not only did John prepare a menu that my wife and I agreed on, he was able to work within our budget which was most important. Because our budget was on the lower side, I feel that we didn't compromise on quality.

    Once we agreed on our menu we were invited to a tasting. We had to pay for the dinner tasting but it was applied to our overall bill at the end. John and his team try and source local ingredients that are seasonal at the time of our wedding which we liked. We made minor tweaks to our menu but for the most part our menu stayed in tact.

    After a few months we're we're invited back to John's showroom to pick out our linens, stemware, and dinnerware.

    At this time John really comforted us as both my wife and I started to feel the pressures of the wedding planning. He made us feel at ease.

    The dinner tasted fabulous from what I remember. We were so busy mingling with our guests that we really didn't finish our dinner HOWEVER our guests raved about the dinner and mentioned how the food tasted so good!!!

    Even during the wedding John checked up on us from time to time. Overall I would recommend John and Culinary Eyes in a heartbeat! O would recommend them any day of the week and twice on Sunday!!
    I forgot to mention that we got married during Labor weekend which was one of the hottest days on record! So despite the triple digit temperature l, John and his team did an AMAZING job!!!

    Attached are some photos that our guests shared with us.

    Culinary Eye Catering catered our wedding reception cocktail and dinner. They were amazing! John Silva and his team are awesome. The food was phenomenal. The service top notch. Everything about the process from start to the actual event was great. Their food and presentation was one the things we were most excited about for our wedding and it all lived up to the excitement. We received lots of compliments about the food from our guests and you could tell it was a highlight. I very highly recommend Culinary Eye.

    John and the team at Culinary Eye are truly incredible. From the first time we met with John, we instantly kicked with his laid back, mellow demeanor. He was excited to do something different with us and played into my request of adding family tradition with our menu. John is so much fun to work with! Everyone couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was, and food was very important to us. The farmer's market salad, salmon, polenta, winter squash, braised short rib, and build your own ice cream sandwich bar was all just beyond perfection. John himself even came out to serve us dinner and we had our own tray of appetizers waiting for us after the ceremony. We felt like true celebrities! Can't recommend John and the Culinary Eye team enough, and I am already looking forward to the next event we can hire them!
