Client Testimonials

Now that the insanity is over, I want to say absolutely from the deepest depths of my heart, thank you for everything for last night. It was honestly a dream come true. You and your staff were incredible, everything was perfect, and I couldn’t have asked for more. John and I are amazed, the guests were amazed, everything was just the best thing ever. So, thank you, thank you, thank you! I was beyond happy the outcome and you’ve been our biggest asset through this whole thing.


We had such an amazing experience with the College! They helped everything fall into place perfectly! They were helpful, considerate and flexible and I would highly recommend them. The food provided by Catering By Design (their caterer) was inventive and delicious. Diana, our liaison, was a joy to work with and helped organize everything. Highly recommend.

Meghan & Stephen

We spent a good portion of our honeymoon talking about how great our wedding was. It was so beautiful, the food was delicious, and your staff was so professional and helpful to everyone. Rich said you are one of the best he’s ever seen. I appreciate how you made everything look so pretty, and all of your attention to detail throughout the whole evening, and during all the planning.

Angela & Rich

Cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did with my event… rave reviews.

Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine

I can’t say enough! It was beautiful, delicious, elegant, and I didn’t have a care in the world. Your team took excellent, excellent care of all of us. Everyone loved the food and drinks. Gary and his team were consummate professionals. I very much look forward to working with you in the near future.


Everything was so great! Couldn’t have asked for a better evening. It went off without a hitch!
We received MANY compliments about the food! A lot of people said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding!! Also we had lots of compliments about the wait staff— attentive and friendly!

Our team had a fantastic time at @eaparentsassoc Starfest 2023 this past weekend! 
The Casino and Game night saw the Dougherty Field House gymnasium transformed into a lively spectacle! An impressive balloon installation from @balloonsmakemehappy_ welcomed guests, while double roulette, craps, blackjack, poker, and a big 6 wheel gave guests the opportunity to have fun and mingle. Furthermore, auctions for seriously awesome prizes were held, with proceeds directly benefiting their extraordinary students and development at @ea1785. 
We offered guests champagne as they arrived, passed hor d’Oeuvres, and presented a dueling steamship round station, a street taco station and pasta station, plus desserts! Overall, an incredibly entertaining evening!
