    With Pure Joy, our day was a joy...the stress of doing, managing was delegated to them

    My fiancé and I interviewed several caterers searching for a firm to help us with our reception at a local museum without an onsite kitchen within 9 months. From our first meeting, Megan at Pure Joy was so easy to relate to, knowledgable and thoughtful; I really did not want to work with anyone else.

    Together, over a series of meetings--we crafted a menu and event plan that reflected our personal style and taste; sampling many of the dishes in "backstage tastings." Throughout the planning process, Megan was able to help us resolve questions, coordinate details, refer us to vendors to provide pipe & drape/lighting and even rentals for our ceremony site. The planning process was so through, she was able to help us truly plan out every detail for maximum enjoyment.

    On the day of the event, our event supervisor Ellen and staff were flawless and attentive. Like magic, the museum was transformed into a reception hall while guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the patio. Servers were friendly, skillful and attentive. Ellen was able to flex with us, when our ceremony ran later than expected to maintain our event plan without a hitch. Guests raved, about the food, drinks, atmosphere and service. "This is the best wedding I've ever been to ..." was a comment we heard consistently that evening and beyond.

    Pure Joy; Megan, Ellen and the event staff helped make our wedding a pure joy for my husband and I. If we were to do it again, we would hire them again without a question.

    Perfection by Patrick & Pure Joy

    We are so happy we chose Pure Joy as our caterers for our wedding on 8/3/19. We worked closely with Patrick throughout the planning process. He did a great job helping us choose unique and personalized food options (including seafood paella!). The food was absolutely amazing and we got a ton of compliments from our guests!! Patrick and his team are incredibly professional. We knew we were in great hands and felt so at ease the day of the wedding. We highly recommend Pure Joy.

    Dear Molly & Terrill, thank you SO much for your lovely and kind words. You two were a joy to work with and Klentner Ranch is one of our favorite venues so that was just the cherry on top. We are so happy you loved the paella and custom menu as well. It's clear to see the two of you are full of love and we wish you the most happily ever after! Love, the Pure Joy Team
