    10 out of 10!!

    My fiancé and I got engaged in January of 2019 and had been planning our October 2020 wedding for over a year when COVID 19 hit. We decided in June, with 127 days to go until our wedding date, to change our plans entirely to best accommodate the safety of our guests. Needless to say, I was a bit overwhelmed. You really have to trust in reviews when planning a wedding from 270 miles away with no time to allow for trials or tastings and Dawn’s reviews truly speak to the execution of her end result, we could not have been happier. Every time we had a question throughout the planning process, Dawn was prompt with a reply and always super quick to update our pricing. The menu options were extensive, and it was hard to narrow it down, the options for cocktail hour make me wish I had a larger wedding just so we could have tried more! I loved the chicken salad phyllo cups, and everybody raved about the crab cakes (I don’t eat seafood but even I almost had to try them, they smelled amazing). She even set aside a sampling of hor d’oeuvres for my husband and I so we didn’t miss out during our photos! Our dinner was incredible, we opted for a chicken and a filet mignon option. Every guest that had the steak told me it was the best steak they’d ever had; it could literally be cut with a butter knife. On top of the food being amazing, Dawn’s staff was exceptional. We had one bartender for 40 guests and he would remember everyone’s drink of choice and have it ready for them as they were walking to the bar. We had a couple of special bottles of wine for the bridal party and he was also on top of that. He was also overall just a funny, personable person. The service staff were also excellent, I feel like I hardly ever saw them, but everything was served and cleaned up super promptly. I would hire Dawn’s again for an event without a second thought and we are super appreciative of how helpful her and her team were!

    Dawn was phenomenal. Food was plentiful and absolutely scrumptious. Moist chicken - scallops cooked to perfection - seared tuna - perfect. 5 stars - on time - on a holiday - food was best I've ever had at a wedding. Incredible for 30 people!
