Perfection

Let me say that no matter the number of positive things I say about Ashley and her awesome team in this post, it will still not describe how truly super they were for our wedding this past weekend. They catered and bartended our entire wedding weekend - a rehearsal BBQ, welcome party, wedding reception, and a Sunday brunch. Every single aspect of our experience with them was just plain easy. Ashley is unbelievably responsive to a point where it seems that she must be superhuman. Their catering options are so diverse, but all executed creatively and presented in a way that our guests just loved. Soooo many of our guests commented on the incredible food, and as I was mingling with guests during our reception dinner, I saw that plates were either empty or people were getting seconds at the buffet. I also want to mention their bartending. Wow. We had a few signature cocktails that we wanted served - a skinny margarita at our rehearsal BBQ and then a French 75 and Old Fashioned at the reception. Our guests raved about all of them. Truly excellently done and exactly what my husband and I wanted to drink! They also were able to make anything the guests requested, which was fantastic. Working with them was an easy, efficient, creative, fun process, where I didn't have to think at all. Highly recommend the great folks at Smash a million times over. Thank you for helping make that weekend the best of our lives!

Great team, great commununication, even better food and service.

Ashley was extremely easy to work with and responsive. They came to our Airbnb and cooked, cleaned up, served, and had a bartender. Everyone was extremely impressed by the food and service. Would work with them again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Wedding Planner!

We hired Dominique and Smash right after booking our venue and it was probably the best choice we made for the wedding! Everyone always talks about how stressful weddings are and when we got closer to the actual date we were mostly worried that we weren't stressed! Dominique handled everything perfectly to the point where we had no worries. It appeared to have come together seamlessly. She even handled an issue with the venue quickly and effectively for a situation that could have caused months of worry. I can't recommend them highly enough. Not only are the affordable for the area but their also just amazing planners!

Working with Smash Events was an absolute dream! What an amazing team! They handle catering, florals and decor as well as planning for weddings. They can book independently from each other, but what a great combination of talents that work seamlessly together to ensure the entire event goes off without a hitch. We worked with Ashely and Dominique from start to finish and they were always on the ball and generally a step ahead which truly makes a huge impact on a wedding day. We highly recommend Smash Events and know you will not be disappointed!
