We were blown away by the service and flexibility of the team at World Cafe Live. Maureen took such great care of us and was so accommodating. The room looked beautiful, the food was awesome, and the atmosphere was so cool. We will be forever indebted to Maureen and her team for looking after us and for helping us pull off such a great event. I cannot say enough good things about that day; as everyone said it would, it really did exceed all our expectations and WCL had everything to do with that. Thank you all!Sent on 08/21/2018

WCL was amazing!!
I don't have enough words to describe how wonderful World Cafe Live was for our wedding! From the beginning, WCL made the process of wedding planning so much less stressful for us. As you all know, put "wedding" on anything and it becomes 10x more expensive, but WCL remained reasonably priced and did not have all the hidden fees that we were finding at other venues in the city. And the venue came with a wonderful wedding planner! Bridget was a wonderful resource throughout the entire process to help me stay on track, think of all the details and execute our day without flaws. The wedding itself was magical and would not have been nearly as special somewhere else. All of our guests were so impressed, that 6 weeks later I am still getting compliments about how our wedding was one of the best they have ever been to! This would not be even close to being possible without Bridget and World Cafe Live.Sent on 06/18/2019

What an amazing experience
From my first call with Bridget through the days after the reception, we felt nothing but support in planning a reception that was beautiful and so uniquely us. We've loved World Cafe for years, but our experience celebrating our marriage here exceeded all expectations Thank you for everything!Sent on 06/13/2019
