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.

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!

“I think that if we are looking for another Martin Luther King, we won’t find him because he comes once in a century, or maybe once in a thousand years...But there are many other persons now who will come forth, I believe, and assume leadership that they never assumed before because they feel that there is this need.”

“Lindsay from CBD was very uplifting and inviting from our first meeting. She demonstrated a great amount of flexibility when it came to touring the Michener. I couldn't recommend CBD and especially Lindsay at the Michener more for your big day!”
