    Wow! What an incredible experience! We have not selected a venue for our wedding reception just yet, but our friends most recently hosted a super fabulous engagement party for us and the food was to die for!! We had just over 100 in attendance and everyone has been raving about the food and the staff who serviced the event. The food was delicious and displayed beautifully and the service was impeccable. They were ultra professional and went above and beyond to make it perfect from the action station to the people taking care of the food service and the bar. I can’t say enough about how wonderful this team made the event. We have had the pleasure of working with Lydia on providing proposals for our wedding reception for several venue options and she is the most accommodating professional we’ve encountered. Believe it or not, planning a wedding on a budget is kinda stressful, but Lydia makes it better by responding to emails at all hours of the day and night and by offering budget friendly options and ideas. Not only does she know her stuff, but she’s delightful and approachable. It is apparent why they are voted “Best of” in so many categories. I just wish there were more stars to give! We hope to utilize their services for the wedding day too!!!
