    Dining innovations was our best vendor. Their food is delicious and the service was so accommodating. Ivan was our go to man, he helped with planning the timeline of our reception, and even met us at our venue months before the wedding to go over the layout of the reception room. His experience came in handy when we were calculating the portions and amount of food to order.

    Ivan and his team were just simply amazing. Dining Innovations was one of the recommended vendors through our package with the Inn at Tranquility Farm in Waynesville, NC. After speaking with Ivan, we scheduled a date for my daughter and her fiance, along with myself to travel to N.C. to meet Ivan at their catering location. We previously selected several things to taste ahead of our visit based on our dining package which was a budget of about 75.00 a person.
    We did go over that with some items and we added a full open bar.

    I can not express how well presented the food was and the quality and taste were amazing. The reception dinner was simply put beautiful. Ivan and his team made the process so easy and he was so much fun and helpful even at the last minute with changes to our bar. They were extremely professional and did not hesitate to help in any way requested.

    I hope you will consider Ivan and his team from Dining Innovations in the future for any event needed. They also provided a catered lunch up at the Inn the day of the wedding.
