    Absolutely fantastic

    The food is fantastic, and working with Alaina made planning my wedding so easy. Could not be happier I went with them for my wedding. Alaina virtually doubled as my planner, making sure everything was being taken care of and helping me make all the small decisions when I wasn’t sure. The food was absolutely fantastic, we got many compliments after on the food and decor (most of which was from Groovin).

    From start to finish Alaina Hall was incredible to work with. We left our initial meeting with Alaina feeling like we won the jackpot - booking someone with so much experience, knowledge and professionalism. Enough can't be said about how easy to work with, honest, and helpful she was throughout the whole process. Also, being in touch was effortless and making payments was simple.

    On top of having a great point of contact for all things food, linens, set-up, tear down, and staff- the food was AMAZING. For days after the wedding we had people texting us that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Everyone felt very well taken care of and we couldn't have been happier with how delicious everything was.
