    Outdtanding at every step - we couldn’t have pulled off our wedding without them!

    We can’t say enough good things about the Purslane team, especially Alex, with whom we worked incredibly closely with. My husband and I decided to get married much sooner than we had planned on due to my mother’s health, leaving us with only one month to plan our wedding start to end. We reached out to the Prospect Park Boathouse and were on the phone discussing details with Alex within 30 minutes. After meeting Alex in person a few days later to walk through the venue together, we were ready to sign the contract.

    The Purslane team was accommodating at every step. We had originally estimated 85 guests but ended up with over 100, and they had no issues pulling this off. Everyone on the Purslane team was easy to work with and far exceeded our expectations. The team was involved in every detail of the day, beyond just the food, and played an integral part in making sure everything went as planned on our big day. We felt comfortable putting all of our trust in Alex and the team to make sure we had the wedding we always wanted, despite our circumstances. They advised on the menu, set up (chairs, table layouts, etc.), the general flow of the evening, and much more. The team made sure my mom was comfortable all night, which was so important to me and my husband. They were in contact with all of our vendors and were a great resource when it came to choosing vendors to work with. Their great reputation and connections in the industry made everything so much easier for us.

    We got so many compliments on the food and had friends asking about our caterer immediately after our wedding.They accommodated the many dietary restrictions and allergies of our guests without comprising the taste of any of the food.

    We can’t recommend Purslane highly enough! You definitely won’t regret hiring them for your wedding - it was the easiest decision we made in our planning.

    Purslane and the PPBH were amazing

    Alexandra with Purslane and the entire team at the PPBH made our experience of planning and getting married an absolute breeze. Apart from the beautiful venue and grounds, a few moments stand out as examples of excellent service. First, as I was debating the order of the dances, they suggested for us to have our first dance on the patio, which worked out beautifully with the setting sun. Secondly, the food and drinks were delicious and accommodated all of our guests' food allergy/issues! Lastly, when the water pressure at the park was suddenly low due to a water main break, they speedily communicated and brought in a backup plan - renting a luxury bathroom unit - without ever causing an alarm to us! Alexandra and her team's professionalism, communication, and experience with events really shined through. The big plus is that the venue is a beautiful historical building that now serves good (Audubon Society) and I had so many guest compliments to how beautiful and awing the space is.
