One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was going with Sensational Hosts. They were a preferred caterer through our reception venue, and we can not say enough good things about them! Bridgit and Doug are so incredible, and we never worried about anything during the planning process. People kept coming up to us saying how it was the best food they have every had at a wedding. The mashed potato bar was a HUGE hit, as well as every other thing they offered us. We were also able to book our DJ and get out wedding cake through them and it was also included in the price of the plate. Both of those services were phenomenal. It was almost like our wedding one stop shop. We are so grateful for them and everything they did to make our day so great!Sent on 05/31/2018

Seriously Stop Looking for a Caterer..this is it
My husband and I live in Florida and were planning a wedding in New Jersey. Let's just start with first impressions, Sensational Host blew everyone else out of the water right from the get go. After our experience during our tasting, we did not even bother going to anymore tastings, we were on the fence between the reception venue that we chose and another venue, and after the experience during the tasting at Sensational Host, we easily finalized our venue decision. We literally chose our reception venue based off how good the food was at the tasting. We knew we could not plan our destination wedding without them once we met Jeffrey. The food was some of the best food I've had, we had a personal waiter and everything cooked to order at the tasting with a printed menu card that we could make notes on based on our preferences. They had a printed sign with our names on the door welcoming us upon our arrival. They think ahead about everything, and plan everything to a T, exactly what you would want for your wedding. At the wedding our guests raved about how it was some of the best wedding food they ever had. Jeffrey and Kara were excellent about communicating. I cannot even believe how much information they processed, retained and responded about without missing a beat. No detail was overlooked. Jeffrey also acted as our day of coordinator. Jeffrey and his team received boxes on boxes on boxes of wedding decor and did a fantastic job of setting everything up. He has an intuition for aesthetics and pays attention to details. We were so worried about things not being set up how we imagined them in our heads, and when we walked into the ballroom on our wedding day, we were completely blown away. We never heard "No, sorry we don't do that", only a happy unequivocal yes to our every request and need. Our guests went on and on about how much they loved the decor and it would not have been possible without Jeffrey and the team at Sensational Host. On the day of Jeffrey discovered we did not provide enough batteries for all our LED candles...no problem, dude is at the store the day of buying batteries, and we never heard another thing about it. He contained small bits of drama created by guests with a smile on his face and a great sense of humor. Our planning from over 1200 miles away was extremely stressful and my husband and I constantly would rest assured saying each other, "No matter what happens, at least we have Jeffrey and Kara." We knew without a shadow of a doubt we could trust them to carry out every decision or request, however big or small. and that they would intuitively know how to handle every situation we could not foresee, and they did. The team the day of was fantastic. Guests commented on how there was always a server everywhere they could possibly look during cocktail our with a variety of hors d'oeuvres. One guest made a very specific request as to what they would like to see on a tray for two people and moments later a server returned with their exact wishes. They made vegan orders specifically for our very small portion of vegan guests. They ensured we had two vegan cupcakes from the bakery included in their package. Servers were chasing me and husband around the reception making sure we stayed hydrated. This vendor is truly unbelievable, and they include everything you could want as a part of their package. I could go on and on, and I sort of have, but they're really that good.Sent on 05/31/2019

I have had the pleasure of working with Sensational Host over the past two years by providing florals for them directly as well as partnering with them to provide florals for weddings and events catered by Sensational Host. The staff are all extremely professional and terrific to work with. Not only have my experiences with them proven to be nothing less than "Sensational" but I have witnessed first hand how they accommodate their clients by going above and beyond. Brides often tell me how pleased they are with the quality of service provided by the Sensational Host team. I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with them and would recommend them highly.
