After having several work events at the Carriage House and working with the Greenery Catering Staff, I knew the place my daughter would love to have her wedding at when she got engaged. She knew right away as we drove up the lane this was the place as she wasn't sure whether she wanted an indoor or outdoor wedding and she had the option to do either in July, however, in the end she did end up going with a church wedding and reception to follow at the Carriage House on a hot Sunday, July afternoon. IT could of not been more perfect for guests to walk the gardens during the cocktail hour and take picutres. We can't say enough about the entire experience from the food tasting, to emails along the way. Margaret and Michelle were our best friends by the end of this journey and we felt like they were part of the family. Michelle was there in a time of crisis and for that we thank her. All the staff were polite, and our guests are still raving about the cutouts in the melons that Craig does on the appetizer table and all the food. We brought in our own 16 different table arrangements and Michelle and staff set them up.....plus my husband's old bike as a kid for a photo op that truly had everyone talking. The locations was easy on and off 95 as many of our guests drove back to New Jersey and Maryland that night. You can take anyplace and make it look good, but it is the people and food that can make or break an event and Greenery Catering is there to see that you make it and for that we thank them.Sent on 08/01/2018

Best decision we made in the wedding planning process
Choosing the Greenery Caterers and Rockwood Carriage House was the best decision we made in the wedding planning process. Our wedding day was perfect because of their hard work, experience, and professionalism. They were so helpful in the planning process, and answered all of our questions with patience and guidance. The day of went off without a hitch. The outdoor ceremony and reception were beautiful, and we received many compliments from our guests on the venue. The food was delicious, and they went out of their way to accommodate our wishes for a fun and casual wedding. Michelle was phenomenal and is so talented. We cannot thank Michelle and the rest of the Rockwood team enough for making our wedding day so special!Sent on 05/12/2019

Amazingly Accommodating and Caring
The Greenery Catering staff at the Carriage House at Rockwood Park were nothing short of amazing on my wedding day! They made me feel like royalty and accommodated not only my requests but also anticipated the needs of my guests! Michelle, our wedding coordinator, was the real MVP of the event! My guest can not stop talking about the delicious food, vegetable/fruit carvings, and the ambiance that the venue provides. I can not rave about this venue enough! Thank you for making our day special and memorable.Sent on 04/22/2019
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.
