Hemingway Home Wedding 10-9-22 鈾ワ笍

The food was amazing!!! All the guests told us how much they liked the food. My biggest regret for the wedding day is not getting to eat enough of it! Everything flowed smoothly the evening of, the staff were very kind. Prior to the wedding the catering company responded to all my questions very quickly. This was an intimate wedding, about 18 people. I would definitely recommend!

10/10 Would Recommend

Incredible. We hired Great Events Catering for our 1/22/22 Wedding and they knocked it out of the park. We were planning our wedding from afar and Great Events was super east to work with. Melissa in particular was fabulous- she was responsive and accommodating. Ourselves and our guests were blown away by the food - many particularly raved about the mini chicken and waffles and bacon wrapped goat cheese stuffed dates. The entrees were generous in size, delicious and served hot. The desserts were the perfect sweet ending to the evening. Service was 10/10. Thank you Great events!

Delicious food and great staff!

The food was amazing!! They cooked on site so everything was fresh and delicious. From the apps to dinner, everyone was talking about how good the food was - and many guests even went up for seconds! The staff was great too. They were very friendly and had perfect timing (never wondered when the next app was coming out, or during dinner when the next person was going to be able to eat). And the two head staff were amazing! They made sure we (bride and groom) had food and drinks at all times during the dinner. They got our drinks, made our plates, and offered to help with any other requests. Highly recommend Great Events!
