I cannot recommend Kristen and the team at Catering by Design enough. We loved our wedding at The College of Physicians. I can honestly say every aspect of our wedding went completely as planned and looked exactly as I had envisioned and I had a very specific vision! Kristen was unbelievable-- incredibly responsive and took on way more than most day of coordinators (calling vendors, creating the timeline, recommending vendors, previewing decor set up). She made recommendations and was honest when she really thought something wasn't a good idea, but at the end of the day she let me come up with the concept and executed it beautifully.Sent on 10/16/2019
In addition to Kristen, the rest of the staff was incredible. I had a number of guests come up to me and tell me the service was outstanding-- better than most top notch restaurants. We even had our own personal concierge, Zakiya, who seemed to know what we needed even before we asked. We actually got to eat at our wedding!
Lastly, the food. It was delicious and again, we got so many compliments. We loved the food so much we ate the packed up leftovers the next night for dinner.
Overall, the evening was incredible and we could not have pulled it off without Kristen and the team at Catering by Design. We cannot thank them enough!

The most amazing place to get married
We fell in love with this venue the moment we walked in! We were at first worried about our budget but Liz and the Catering By Design team worked with us so we prioritized what was truly important to us. From start to finish, there were NO ISSUES and the day flowed beautifully. Our guests love the food, the ambience, and the opportunity to see the museum during our cocktail hour. We could not have asked for a better venue and team helping us! We loved our day, and much of that was thanks to everyone working at the College of Physicians!! It was a magical day.Sent on 04/15/2020

Outstanding Experience/Perfect Wedding Evening
We have an outstanding experience with College of Physicians and their in-house catering organization for our wedding. We attribute how wonderful our evening was to them! The Wedding Specialist was super organized from at every point in the planning process through the event itself. We felt so relaxed! The attention to details was phenomenal, and everyone was kind and gracious to us and our guests. Even our guests commented on the kind, professional and gracious staff.
The food was delicious! Once again -our guests commented on this! The servers synchronized serving our guests so all at the table received their meals at the same time. Outstanding! Just a class act!
The space is beautiful - the various halls, the garden, etc.
It was a beautiful event! Thank you, College of Physicians and particularly Kristin Medici.
