Client Testimonials

“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.”

Gary and his team were consummate professionals. I very much look forward to working with you in the near future.”
