    Mattison's Catering & Kourtney Culler

    Kourtney Culler was our pseudo planner, because we didn't have the traditional big wedding, but rather a small, intimate and elegant elopement. She was fantastic to work with and we appreciated all her help & support! Even though our affair was small, she made sure to provide us feedback in a timely manner and acted as a conduit for other vendors to make the process easy for us. She made us feel confident that every detail was taken care and every aspect of our day would go as planned. She even went above & beyond and hung our floral piece that was prepared by my Mother on the ceremony arch for us.

    As for the food, it was awesome! We didn't get to enjoy too many of the hors d'oeuvres, because we were taking pictures and settling down. However, the main course was spectacular. The short rib was exquisite with its tenderness and taste. The potatoes au gratin with truffle were everyone's favorite dish for the evening. We felt all the items we chose were perfect for us and would highly recommend them to anyone else looking for options.

    The service was amazing, in particular Dave who was our main attendant. He attended to our every request and detail with graciousness. He acted as a consummate professional and any wedding or affair catered by Mattison's would be lucky to have him as their primary server.

    We would highly recommend utilizing Kourtney, Mattison's and the rest of her team to take care of all your wedding needs.

    Our Wedding Reception Dinner

    We had our wedding reception dinner at Mattison’s Forty-One for 10 guests. The staff did an amazing job! If we had 10X the number of guests I feel the outcome would of been the same. Chef Paul, Kourtney, and staff did an outstanding job!
