    Pittsburgh's Best!

    The JPC Event Group is something else! We may be biased, but the food is the best “wedding food” we have ever had – and it doesn’t even seem like your typical wedding food. The chefs are able to create 5 star dishes for crowds – and that is something not many can do! Their offerings are unique, fresh, and delicious. I also have a very severe gluten allergy & they were able to accommodate the menu and made me feel at ease throughout the entire dinner service. The actual day of catering was amazing, but the service that comes along with working with JPC also sets them apart. We worked with Caitlyn throughout our wedding planning process – she was always available to answer our questions and talk through things with us. She offered her opinion & creative solutions to roadblocks we were running into. She also helped calm our nerves and stresses as we were planning and having our wedding during COVID. She communicated every safety measure with us and was on top of all of the state and county restrictions that were being put into place. 10/10 couldn’t recommend more!

    High class service

    If you are looking for people who go absolutely above and beyond then you need to talk to Rick and his wife Jody! Our wedding at rustic acres was absolutely stunning. Every guest said it was the most beautiful venue and wedding they have ever been to, and I’d have to agree!

    Professional, quality, and high class is how I would describe their dedication and commitment to their clients and their craft.

    Rick and Jody had a devastating incident when their catering kitchen suffered due to a fire… 1 day before our wedding.

    Rick called me and assured me he would still provide the utmost service and promised he would get that food we ordered again. I didn’t even worry one bit because I knew and trusted their dedication to high quality service.

    Everyone asked me why I wasn’t worried or “freaking out” and it is because of the service they provide, I knew everything would be okay no matter what… I just felt bad for what happened to them and what they were/are going through.

    Rick and Jody worked from morning till night and provided 150 wedding guests the exact meal they ordered after suffering a kitchen fire the day before our wedding. I wasn’t even shocked because it is just normal for them to overcome and provide excellent service… it was more of a “Yepp they are amazing as per usual” affirmation.

    Thank you Rick and Jody for an outstanding wedding. Our guests said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Exquisite food that just tastes unbelievably amazing. The crepes were also a huge hit.

    JPC Event Group's reply:

    Jackie,
    Thank you for your kind words. It is because of couples like you and Matt that make what we do matter. As I drove to the scene of the fire in the early morning hours on the 17th, I kept thinking how am I going to do all of these weddings this weekend. I am not going to lie and say it was easy, but I knew we had to do our best for the couples who were depending on us. Many friends and business colleagues did whatever they could to help, and as always our staff dug in trudged on and by the grace of god himself we pulled through.

    So, bless you and Matt on this incredible journey you have embarked on. As Jody and I have learned in our 33 years of marriage, always look forward and to one another but never look back because no matter what was, the future is always bright especially when you face it together.

    So Mr. and Mrs. H we all at JPC Event Group wish you a life filed with happiness, laughter and prosperity but most of all LOVE.

    You always get nervous when you have to use a venues caterer but with JPC that is not the case their freshly made food on-site was perfect for my wedding! Caitlyn is wonderful and keeps your day moving no matter how busy they were everything was done so smoothly. I even picked a place for our ceremony that has never been done before and it was perfect!

I have worked with Jody and Rick almost my entire career, and you would be amazed at the events they produce. Why would you hire anyone else? With catering industry insight, awards and experience, they have a dedication to "perfect occasions."
