For any brides and grooms looking for an amazing caterer who makes you feel like family - look no further; Marcey Brownstein Catering is five star.
Marcey, Olga, Leslie, and their staff are truly the best in their craft. From day one, they worked with us to make sure the food, cocktails, and table decor were perfect for our cocktail style wedding and within budget. They even reassured our traditional parents on multiple occasions that our non-traditional wedding style would be fabulous!
Their professionalism and knowledge of not only catering, but all facets of the wedding, was always greatly appreciated and helped to put our minds at ease during the planning process. For example, although we were having a cocktail style reception, we were sold on having 8 -10 person round tables. Marcey and Olga tactfully talked us out of this idea at our tasting and explained why. Not only were we on board, but our aforementioned parents were as well. The end result was a perfect amount of table seating and lounge seating that did not derail the party atmosphere we were trying to create. They were also able to acquire sequin tablecloths that we rented and went above and beyond at tying in all of the elements of our vintage travel wedding and get us the most delicious wedding cake as a last minute add.
Our June 4th wedding couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to Olga and the team! Olga was super attentive and accommodating to our needs the entire night. The waitstaff was always available while remaining stealth and the bartenders were top-notch and kept up with the crowd effortlessly. Almost three months later and our guests are still talking about the yummy food and drinks - especially the steak, the Kentucky Mules, and the cookies and milk shooters!
Olga, Marcey, and Leslie - thank you for everything! You are true professionals who worked seamlessly among all of our vendors, and we couldn’t be happier.

A Catering Company That Wants to Give you What you Want.
We met seriously with 5 different caterers and had reached out to many more for quotes. Our experience was that some caterers were either rushing you into the contract and would not provide a tasting prior to contract signed (how could I possible sign something without knowing if you'll deliver the goods??) while other caterers wanted to curtail you into using their preestablished menus. One thing was for certain: I absolutely did not want another boring steak, chicken or fish sit down dinner. What a bore!
Olga at Marcey Brownstein delivered the goods. She listened to what we wanted every step of the way, never making me feel like I was a bridezilla even when I demanded cocktail service for the whole reception and even when she accompanied us to Broadway Rentals show room and I struggled for an hour picking out linens. She will be there for you every step of the way supporting you through decisions, providing helpful tips and advice, and waiting patiently for your instructions. She makes the catering aspect of planning a wedding a lot less stressful.
We ended up doing a cocktail style reception with two stations and one passed plate. It was important to me to have foods from my culture. I gave them my mother's recipe for pernil, and man oh man did the chefs execute. Tasted just like home. Additionally, when you say you like a cocktail from a restaurant or something particular, Olga will do the research to replicate it as much as they can. It's these little details that make you feel confident in the quality of service this catering company provides. From the tasting to the wedding, the food was delicious. The staff hired was also fabulous. I don't think any guest ever had to wait for a drink at the bar or a served plate. I, luckily, did get to eat at my own wedding and can attest! This is a company that is all about the service aspect and they will go above and beyond to ensure that your wedding day is as magical as you dreamt it to be. There is no ask too big or too small. They are really willing to meet you where you are at. Hire this company, you will not be disappointed!

Hudson Valley Wedding Dream Menu
From start to finish, a delicious and unique dining experience wouldn’t have been possible without Marcey’s flexibility during the planning process. Seamlessly integrating a family-style serving at our request, custom cocktails and non-traditional desserts - Marcey helped us shape our dinner into something people talked about the morning after. With a deep bench of menu options, we appreciated Marcey talking us through how dishes could work together or be approached differently. Having bases in NYC and Hudson Valley meant that Marcey could easily attend in-person meetings at the venue or with our planner - a huge plus for anyone looking to get married upstate.
The moment we knew our guests would be in for a treat was right after our ceremony. Before cocktails started, and almost immediately, Marcey’s team greeted us with both of our custom cocktails and a full plate of all the appetizers being passed to our guests. That special gesture set the tone for our evening and we felt reassured that our guests would enjoy the thoughtful menu Marcey helped us put together.
The five-star quality of food and service paired with an amazing, fun-to-work-with team makes Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events the obvious choice.
