Incredible Venue, Food, and Team!
This is a fantastic team! We were initially planning our wedding from out of state and were nervous about picking a venue/caterer. After meeting with Patti and her team we knew we would be in good hands. There are many reasons to book here, but here are some of the highlights: 1) The venue is stunning! There are so many beautiful places for guests and the bridal party to take pictures. It feels very unique, historic, and cozy inside. We had guests from all over the country and who commented on how much they loved the venue! It really helped us show off my home-state of Delaware in the best way! 2) The food was SO good. I think food at wedding is usually so-so but our guests could not stop commenting on how good everything was! 3) This team knows what they are doing. Patti, Margaret, and Michelle are all very professional and extremely detail-oriented. They helped us bring our vision to life. They also have a lot of great contacts and helped us find many of our other vendors, our hotel, and our transportation company. They helped us accommodate our guests with accessibility concerns, and helped us address the last minute problems that arose. Michelle also did a great job of keeping the flow of the night going and attending to me and the bridal party. We could not have planned our wedding from Chicago without the help of this team.Sent on 11/17/2019

Phenomenal service, food, and scenery.
We had an absolutely amazing experience with our wedding at the Carriage House and The Greenery Catering Company from the moment we first met to view the Carriage House to saying good night to the last guest. The Greenery Catering Company was very accommodating to all of my family members who have food allergies. I can’t say enough to how delicious the food was and the amount of complaints we got from our family and friends. Also, Michelle, the catering manager, who was present at our reception was so attentive to not only myself, as the bride, and husband, but to all my guest! She made sure all of the guest with allergies were aware of the foods they could eat and had their meals, was visiting all the tables, and was on top of anything you could think of. All the staff were great and so friendly. Oh, and of course I can’t forget the beautiful scenery and gardens which made for wonderful backdrop for the wedding.Sent on 06/28/2019

Beautiful venue, delicious food, perfect all around
Carriage House was the first venue we toured, and we knew we found the winner right away. We loved everything about the space, from the intimate ceremony room on the top floor, to the beautiful grounds/gardens, to the dance floor/reception area. We could easily see our guests enjoying all the spaces the venue had to offer. Craig and Patti were so thorough at breaking down everything that was included, and all of our menu options...we were having a brunch wedding, and the food tasting was such a fun part of what was included (the food was also all amazing). On our wedding day, Michelle was so kind and calm, and took care of everything behind the scenes...everything looked so effortless. We simply had the best day, and everything flowed so well.Sent on 06/28/2019
The Greenery Caterers has done a fine job on many wedding receptions here at the Delaware Museum of Natural History. Their hand-carved vegetables and fruits make an excellent presentation for their fresh and delicious foods.
