Just DO IT! You wont regret it
The caterer for our wedding cancelled two weeks before our wedding and we were in a pinch to find someone. Luckily, Lovely Night was available and they were able to work with us quickly on a menu. We were very worried about the food since we are foodies ourselves and love to cook. We were wanting a creative, multicourse meal with wine pairings and excellent quality food. Because of the timing, we didn't have time to taste their food, we just had to commit and go for it. We are SO glad that we did. The creativity and flavors were phenomenal! I would definitely hire them again for any event and recommend to anyone looking for excellent, creative, fresh food served by good people who are willing to work with you and be flexible. I cannot thank them enough for being part of our special day.Sent on 02/23/2021

Wedding apps and dinner
Lovely Night and their AMAZING food and cocktails was the highlight of our wedding day! With COVID, we had to change the guest count and food multiple times. Gelsey and James were always super responsive and flexible enough to come up with menus that would work for the changes. Gelsey really helped me understand and execute all of the details of an event. Our guests still cannot stop talking about all of the delicious food. We cannot wait to work with them again.Sent on 01/15/2021

Absolutely loved working with Gelsey and this team!!!!! We were crazy enough to plan a wedding during this pandemic, but Gelsey was so gracious throughout the entire process. We had so many changes up until the day before the wedding but she was super accommodating and understanding. I had no idea what I needed for the event or where to start but she really put me at ease by answering all of my questions. Also, the food was incredible! I can hear our guests constantly saying how amazing the food was during dinner. Each dish was unique and SO delicious, I 100% recommend working with Gelsey and her husband James. Love the Lovely Night!!Sent on 01/04/2021
