Thank you Matt!

My wedding was on March 18th, 2023 at 6:00pm. Overall, this was a great experience with great food! Matt was able to be very flexible and understanding with our busy schedules. He was able to execute everything to what looked flawless to me. Everything from price to options is up front and customizable which was wonderful to me! We chose to do a buffet style of a mixture of meats, seafood, and veggies so everyone that came to our wedding had something to eat! I only heard good things from everyone about the appetizers during cocktail hour and main courses!

Thank you again so much, Matt, and your team that helped make this day more special. You are truly appreciated by The Bailey鈥檚!
