The best venue and staff!
I simply cannot thank Patti, Margaret and Michelle enough for everything they did to make the day perfect. Margaret is beyond efficient on the administrative end and Michelle is an absolute rock star of a planner and event host. She has the perfect balance of presence vs. behind the scenes and will keep your guests comfortable and informed, while also keeping you and your bridal party well attended and free of stress. As someone with a planner personality myself, I was completely at ease handing her the controls.Sent on 01/27/2020
Both the planning and event went seamlessly and the staff manning the event couldn't be nicer. The venue itself is gorgeous and was perfect with my love of history and rustic atmosphere. You simply cannot go wrong with choosing Greenery and the Carriage House for your wedding!

I cannot say enough how wonderfully my wedding at Rockwood Carriage House turned out. I had been to Rockwood before for various events and already knew how beautiful the venue was. I approached them requesting a fully vegan wedding, a first for them, and they were completely willing to work with me, with fantastic results. (I had guests who didn't even realize that the reception was entirely vegan, because they were so impressed with the food.) Greenery was also willing to work with our band, even though they traditionally have DJs. On the day of Michelle did an absolutely wonderful job and I didn't have to worry about anything, I could just enjoy a wonderful reception. After all the craziness and logistics of planning a wedding, I cannot tell you how grateful I am to Greenery Caterers for making the day seamless and fun.Sent on 02/08/2020

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
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.
