    Wedding Day: October 21, 2017
    Rating: 5
    Working with Roe and Kathryn made our excitement about our wedding even more fun if you can imagine that! Festivities was a real partner in the planning process, helping us make the right decisions for us. They really understood our vision, and when we walked into our wedding, we just knew it was “our” special day.
    The food was beyond delicious.. Even as the evening started, everyone was talking about the Potato Leek Soup on the Farm Table.
    The Festivities staff always had a smile on their faces and were ready with whatever our guests needed.
    It was a truly wonderful experience, from the first day to the last day.. and I promised Roe I would be back to visit and plan more parties.
    Gratefully,
    Robin and Ben

    5.0 Wedding Day June 9, 2017

    WOW! I walked in and it was “perfection”. All the details I had envisioned came to life in front of my eyes!! Thank you to Roe and her great team for giving us our most special day to start our new lives together. The room was glowing in all the candles, just as I dreamt!
    The food was so delicious. I knew I wanted stations. There was never a long line, and everyone went from station to station, hearing how delish each one was…
    Thank you again for your patience, good humor. It was FUN!!! Xo

    I so wanted to share how very special I felt working with Festivities under the guidance of Kathryn. My family is Italian and I so wanted our wedding menu to reflect our roots and our family Italian kitchen. Chef Bill went out of his way to create recipes that made my heart sing!
    I will always remember their kindness, professionalism, the FOOD and the incredible presentation. Thank you for making our special day the most special!!
    Gratefully,
    Ashley
