Unsuspected Surprise

Let me start out by saying I did not originally hire Willow & Sage. They came to me thru my hired caterer who due to covid costs and current economy needed to sell off their outside contracts. This process happened 4 months before my wedding...we booked our caterer 2 years out, so to say I was panicked is an understatement. All of those nerves and stress went away within the 1st 30 minute conversation I had with Scott the owner. He took the time to explain. The process, asked me things and for decisions I didn't even know I needed to make, and was overall reassuring. From that point I has the pleasure of dealing with 3 more ladies from his office before the big day for various reasons and they all, just like Scott , were so professional and knowledgeable, and helped me stay at peace with this change. The big day finally came and Scott ran my day with the help of Andrea running the serving staff. Scott made sure everything went out without a hitch, he checked on myself and the groom throughout the night. There was never a point when we didn't have what we needed. Andrea and the rest of the staff were AMAZING , I seriously cannot say enough about how great each and everyone of them were. The food, how did I forget the food, was incredible! Every single bite was delicious, and again thanks to Scott he made sure we had a tray of cocktail hour apps waiting for us, and had our dinner plates brought out at the top of opening the buffet, in a rare occasion I was a bride who actually got to eat her meal! I would hire Willow and Sage again in a heartbeat and know that going into any event, everything would be handled.

South Jersey’s hidden gem of a venue!

South Jersey’s hidden gem of a venue! Before my fiancé & I went venue shopping, we knew we wanted our venue close to home. We looked at many venues around the area, but people kept suggesting we look at the Marian House. We had never been to or heard about the Marian House until we started venue shopping. This was for the best because we toured the venue without preconceived notions. We contacted Willow & Sage through their website to schedule a tour. Will (head chef) provided our tour. After walking through the space & speaking with Will, we knew the Marian House was meant to be where we celebrate the start of our marriage! We followed up with Jason (coordinator), who was very patient with us through the holidays while reviewing the contract & answering our questions. One theme echoed throughout the conversations was that we would become part of the Willow & Sage family. It truly feels like we have joined a family, and we can’t wait for our wedding in 2023!

The review from our wedding on 05/13/2023. Will, Scott, Kara & Joe surpassed our wildest expectations & nailed every detail. If you are looking for a venue & caterer, this is it; stop searching. We have been to many weddings, & not a single one was better than Willow & Sage at the Marian House. The food was BY FAR the best food at a wedding anyone had ever had. We had over 200 guests, & the space was more than perfect. It would be the best restaurant in South Jersey if they took reservations. Do yourself a favor and include the French onion boules as part of your cocktail hour (& scallops & short ribs for dinner). The #1 compliment we kept hearing was how amazing the food was. The dance floor was busy all night but never felt too big or too small.
Chef Will & the entire team were amazing to work with. They worked tirelessly to make sure everything went off without a hitch. Nothing went wrong; nothing was average; everything was perfect. We are beyond grateful for how accommodating they were. We were running late to cocktail hour, so they brought our Bridal party appetizers outside while we were finishing up photos. Joe greeted us with drinks & provided world-class service to us & our families. Kara worked tirelessly with us to ensure all our little requests came true, especially being able to set up early.
Scott’s industry experience is visible in every aspect of the event. Scott was ever-present, from hiring the best people for the job to ensuring we were calm before our big day. Scott would be the voice of reason if there was something we weren’t sure about. When we had any request, whether small or large, it was something that was handled promptly by Scott.
Kara was our main point of contact during the major planning phases of the wedding. Any questions we had, which were many, Kara responded in an extremely timely & professional fashion. We made several adjustments, some of which were unique to us as a couple. Kara worked with us & our vendors to bring in oysters from Aquidneck Island Oysters, ice cream cake from Cups & Cones, & flowers from Russo’s Farm Market. Kara put us at ease throughout our wedding planning process.
If you have read this far in our review, you are seriously considering Willow & Sage for your event. The best advice we can provide is to see the place in action at a Bridal Show where you can taste the food & experience the magic. We loved working with everyone at Willow & Sage & can’t wait to see what event we can host next with them by our side!
