    Amazing Food

    I can’t say enough how perfect the food at our reception was — the passed food during cocktails, the dinner itself, and the dessert. The team was also fully and well staffed, incredibly professional and friendly, and flexible. And we planned our wedding in a bit of a hurry, and they were not phased at all by the short amount of time we gave them to prepare. Worth every penny!

    Amazing -- 5 stars!!!!!

    Carly and Emily and their team were absolutely amazing to work with and were extremely helpful throughout the entire planning phase. They were always responsive and flexible and went above across the board. We can't thank the enough for helping to make our special day everything we could have dreamed of and more! The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I highly recommend them!

    My husband and I hired Great Performances as our wedding caterer and they were phenomenal to say the least!! From the initial conversation to the actual wedding itself, the planning process was seamless. I worked with Carly and Emily and those ladies are top notch! All of our wedding guests RAVED about the food, even including a successful NYC restaurateur! GP's food is creative, beautiful and delicious. The service was immaculate. Carly and Emily went ABOVE AND BEYOND their catering duties to make sure I was enjoying the wedding planing process as a whole. GP also provided a bridal attendant on the wedding day who was so lovely and sweet - she made sure my husband and I both had the drinks of our choice, kept hydrated, was eating, and even helped me with my shoe change! Seriously fantastic! Don't hesitate to hire Great Performances! They made my wedding so classy, spectacular and memorable! A++++
