    I cannot say enough nice things about our reception at the Marietta/Cobb Muesum of Art. The event service provided was amazing. Everyone was complimenting every aspect of the reception -- the food, the venue, the service, the beauty, the easy-going feel.

    The food did not dissapoint -- we did a southern menu that was buffet style where the guests could go back for more and more. Our food included a pecan cheese roll, stacks of fresh fruit, roasted vegetables with goat cheese, barbeque pork tarts, fried chicken bites, fried green tomatoes, and steak skeweres. Not to mention a grits bar with two types of grits and toppings as well as a carving station with sirloin. As a born southerner, I love all of these items but everyone couldn't stop saying enough. I wanted to sit there and eat instead of talking to all of my guests =) Thankfully, the wedding coordinator Rhonda had arranged for two heaping plates of food and 10-15 minutes of alone time so that we could catch a breath to eat and relax before the madness began.

    Rhonda is the contact for the Museum and I certainly can't say enough nice things about her as well. She is a wonderful resource for all things weddings and thinks about every tiny detail. She was always accessible by phone and e-mail. 4 months before the wedding, we met with her to go over what food we wanted, what linen colors on the tables, how we wanted the colors for the buffett, if we wanted a wedding cake and how we wanted it, and a million other details. Carriage House Catering/Event Staff took care of everything -- they charge you one price that includes it all including tipping, etc. They clean up. This is one of the only caterers I found that for the wedding cake gave me options: 1) I could get my wedding cake from them OR 2) I could bring in a cake from somewhere else without penalty, they would plate the cake and serve for no extra fee, AND they would have given me back the cake amount from the cost if I didn't have them make it.

    It was a lovely day and I felt that not only was it everything that I hoped for for my reception, the value was tremendous. They have menus to work with any budget. I could have spent much more on a plated dinner but I found the buffet menu preferable (and less expensive!).

    Can't say enough. Rhonda as an event manager and Jeff as the caterer, they are an amazing team!

    If you have never been inside the Museum, you must go! A true treasure on Marietta Square that hosts galas, weddings, proms and fundraisers. Not only is the art amazing, the building and staff are amazing too!
