    Food Heaven

    Spencer and his team were amazing at our tasting!! From start to finish they put out the “red carpet” and presented the most beautiful and delicious food options I’ve ever tasted! Such a first class experience!
    With such a wonderful tasting experience, we knew Main Event was the best choice for our wedding! The Main Event team ensured the food was perfect, drinks were always filled and no one needed anything. They took their jobs so seriously and made a personal connection with our guests, which meant the world to us!
    Thank you for the perfect day!

    Simply amazing!

    Main Event was the most spectacular catering company, and made our wedding simply fantastic. Spencer and his team were amazing during the initial consult, presenting various menu option that were in line with our winter wedding theme, as well as linen, place setting and glass options. The tasting was some of the best food I ever had – we left stuffed, and they made it very special. From a personal parking spot, to champagne during the actual tasting, it was AMAZING! The quality of the ingredients, the vastness of the selection, and the deft with which they put it all together were amazing. We did a dual entrée with short rib and crab cakes, along with parmesan polenta and roasted brussels. Passed hors d’oeuvres included lobster rolls, mini duck tacos, and butter chick on small naan bread – all of which reflected us perfectly as a couple. I could go on and on about the food, but the SERVICE was impeccable. We had our own assigned served who anticipated and met our every need; she even comforted by 3 year old when she started to have a tantrum. This included bringing us a signature cocktail and hors d’oeuvres right after the ceremony, to getting me water while dancing the night away on the dance floor. My guests have been raving about the food since we had the wedding over a month ago! The best decision you will ever make is hiring Main Event!! The made the wedding unforgettable!

  • Nana Floral - Event Wedding Florists

    Amazing company and amazing people. This company knows how to be helpful and create generous service to no limits. the food was terrific, and overall reasonably priced. The server seemed to read my mind and was taking care of everything as I thought of it. Everyone involved - from planning to set-up to serving, to clean-up was so professional and pleasant. We were able to put on the event we wanted within the budget we'd planned every time. Great work with Spencer and team last year and many more weddings to go.
