Great food! Wonderful Service!

Designed Events impressed us from the Menu Tasting through our Wedding Reception! Mark surprised us by not only bringing linens (we forgot to order linens for the buffet tables) but he also brought some greens to dress up the buffet line. Our guests commented on the high quality of the food. We are very happy with the service we received from Designed Events!!
