    Mat and his team did an EXCELLENT job for our New Year's Eve (12/31/17) wedding on St. Thomas! The food tasted AMAZING, the staff was super helpful, and the set-up of the tables, chairs, linens, etc. was all perfect. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a wedding in the Virgin Islands!
