Epic wedding experience!

Our daughter, Katie, and our son-in-law, Austin, got married last weekend and Ashley and her team catered the celebration. We could not have picked a better, more talented, more organized, or experienced caterer! Everything was just perfect down to the last detail! The bride and groom were happy! Those attending were happy! And my husband and I were beyond happy! Such a beautiful evening! Guests are still sending the sweetest compliments. Thanks to Ashley and her team for making such a beautiful experience and lasting memory for our daughter, and our new son-in-law.

Perfect Wedding, Seamless Planning, Delicious Food!

What can I say? We were given one of those rare weddings where everything was perfect. It only happened through Ashley’s careful planning and understanding of our vision. None of us remember the boiled chicken or soggy whitefish from our childhood weddings (okay, maybe a little ) but your guests will forever remember and rave about Ashley’s food the way our guests did. We wanted our menu to reflect seasonal choices, our respect for food, and our appreciation of the culinary craft. Ashley was there from our first tasting to guide us through our choices and convey what the experience would be the day of our wedding. My sibling owned a French bistro, has been involved in many catering events, and my family has been small business owners their whole lives. The coordination and planning involved in delivering this experience was not lost on us. Our expectations were exceeded. The staff was friendly, and through the busy night we saw them anticipate the needs of our guests and execute perfect timing and delivery. The food was served family-style, and everything arrived staggered and hot. Our guests loved the opportunity to try everything. More than once we were told, “We can tell you guys love food, because this menu is so good!” And there it is: if you are looking for a wedding experience that reflects your sensibilities, Power Events is what you want.

The food was only one factor in what Power Events delivered. The décor was neat, uniform, and elegant. Coordination between our day-of planner, venue staff, and other vendors was timely and well organized. We look forward to sharing our experience with others who are in need of event planning!
