I hired Chef Kev through Thumbtack because he replied promptly to my request and already had a suggested menu based off of my needs. The event was my 1 year wedding anniversary and I requested drop-off catering for a buffet style dinner. The only change that I'd make is the time. Chef Kev was delayed due to traffic but looking back, if he was able to arrive just 15-20 minutes sooner I may have been less distracted and frantic! LOL! Everything else was absolutely awesome. The price was great, the flavor and creativity were amazing... all of my guests enjoyed the food! If I ever decide to hold another large event, Chef Kev will be the first caterer I call!
4.5 Drapes were there before we arrived and looked good. The only hitch was that they had told my wedding coordinator that they would come back on Monday to pick up the drapes (Wedding was on Saturday) which kind of stressed us out but we just thought we'd deal with it later. But then at the end of the wedding the vendors came and took it down which was great, but we could have done without the added stress.
Best value you could get in a wedding catering company! Quick basic info on my wedding since yours might be different: Late May wedding in Maryland, 7-hour reception with cocktail hour and dinner, approx. 100 guests, Manor, garden & tented reception setting, buffet dinner including a mix of food and drinks representing the cultures of the bride & groom (salvadoran, thai, new orleans, baltimore). Just two days after our wedding day I am feeling so good about the decision we made in booking Top of the City Catering. Maribel and her team were absolutely fantastic and we received soooo many compliments on our food, desserts, and cocktails, which were all provided by Top of the City. They had also done a great job of setting up décor for the guest tables, around the venue, and for the buffet and bar areas. In addition, the service throughout the day and night was phenomenal and we (bride & groom) always felt taken care of. For planning, we wanted a rustic, elegant feeling and they did a great job of presenting us ideas that were aligned with our vision. Top of the City Catering is a smaller catering business, but that does not make it any less in quality. When we were first looking into Top of the City I was a little leery because it was much more affordable and it usually is said, "You get what you pay for," but in this case that was NOT true at all. Maribel and her team are very responsive in communication, are very open and welcoming to your ideas and direction, and will always give suggestions from their expertise but still respect your wishes should you want something different. I really hope that Top of the City will gain momentum in growing its business and gaining the respect it deserves. Don't let the size of the company distract you from the amazing service, quality of food, flexibility, and affordable price you will get from Top of the City catering. Get a consultation with them and see for yourself!
Edelina was my wedding day planner. She's amazing. I got far more than what I paid for, and I can't thank Edelina enough. She helped me ahead of time when I had issues I couldn't resolve, and she was great with helping me run through checklists and with making recommendations. On the day of my wedding, Edelina made sure everything ran perfectly. I had rented out a large venue with events going on in multiple locations at the venue, so getting everything to run perfectly was quite a feat. She accomplished it. I feel so lucky to have met Edelina, and my wedding was so much better for her fantastic service.
We hired them last min bc my DJ plans fell through! Kacey was understanding and super helpful during the booking process ... Especially since it was the week of my wedding! My guest and I had a blast they were quick to set up and great MCs kept the party going!
After I decided to plan a 70th birthday party for my father, I knew I wanted something different other than just a few guests at home. After speaking with the owner of ALD, April, about what I was looking for and what my budget was, she immediately started helping me brainstorm options for locations and vendors to take care of everything from cupcake orders to banners. She even went to visit the restaurant, see the room, and speak to the restaurant event planner before I could make it over to the location. April is super organized and has timelines and deadlines for each step in planning the event and she always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. When the day of the event arrived she had all of the materials as discussed and decorated the dining room with a beautiful black and gold theme. She provided everything from chair covers and table linens to balloons. Everything went as planned and she stayed around to make sure everything was on track. I'm so glad that I worked with ALD! They created a memorable and unforgettable event.
My husband and I loved working with Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners. They were polite, asked questions, and went above and beyond on our wedding day. Our wedding would not have been the same without them and they were by far our favorite vendor.
Everything about our experience with Catering Reserved was incredible. Dianna Gilbert showed immense professionalism, and was the perfect caterer for our wedding reception. We are so grateful for everything she did and would not hesitate to recommend her, and the company.
My husband and I hired Mary as our Day of Coordinator for our wedding this past July. Mary absolutely loves this type of work and stayed in constant communication with us about personal items that she owns that she could bring and use at the wedding free of charge. She even made a trip out to our home to meet us in person! On the day of, she did a wonderful job helping my family and friends with the decorations, as it was a very DIY wedding. Mary is so sweet and loving, as well as great at what she does. We would highly recommend her again :)
I hired Michele Palmer to be my day-off wedding coordinator for my 220-person wedding, and I could not be more pleased with the services that Michele and her colleague, Debby, provided! FANTASTIC!!! The wedding day-off coordination service is more that just the "day-off" - Michele came out to the venue and went over details with me a month prior to the wedding, her and Debby attended the rehearsal dinner (and patiently waited for our tardy wedding party), and Michele was quick to answer any questions I had and give me advice in the months leading up to our wedding. During the actual wedding day, Michele and Debby made sure everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Michele was also instrumental in providing me with great advice regarding asking my rental company for an early tent delivery - since it was expected to rain all week prior to our wedding. This ensured that the grass under the tent was relatively dry for our wedding day. I would 100% recommend Michele and her company to any future bride. Trust me, you need the help!!!
It was a joy to work with Jacqueline for my wedding! As the day of event coordinator, she provided outstanding service at every turn. She was accommodating to every request and concern we had and was extremely thorough and organized in getting the details worked out for the big day. I was especially grateful for how hard she worked in alleviating the stress of the bride! She made sure the wedding day ran smoothly and was exactly the way I had envisioned. Jacqueline went above and beyond and even served as our emcee for the reception (she was fabulous!). We couldn't have been happier with the service Jacqueline provided and how the wedding came together. She did an amazing job and were blessed she was a part of our wedding day!
Words can not express how grateful I am to have Bianca as the day-of-coordinator for my wedding! She was so patient and kind during this entire stressful process. As a DIY bride with no previous experience with floral arrangements, she was able to help me find the right place to purchase flowers at a 75% less costs than florists were charging me for arrangements. Everything turned out absolutely beautiful! The decor was everything I envisioned and MORE! I am extremely grateful for her help throughout this process and I would highly recommend her for future services! Thank you so much Bianca!!!
Where to begin? At first I was extremely against hiring a day of coordinator as I was convinced I did not need one. I was EXTREMELY wrong! I could now not imagine my wedding without Trina and her team. Trina is extremely organized, easy to communicate with, and thought of details that I would’ve have overlooked but ended up being so important the day of. Trina offered advice, helped me to make decisions, and used her wealth of knowledge to help me visualize that I wanted my wedding to look like. There was not a question that Trina did not know the answer to. Trina and her team were fantastic. Before the wedding she triple checked everything with me and my husband, called and confirmed with all of my vendors, and communicated with other important members of our bridal party about their role. During our rehearsal she clearly communicated expectations for the day of with all of my very large bridal party and helped everyone feel comfortable with their role in the wedding. Everyone was complimenting her and her team’s efforts throughout the night. She and her team were always one step ahead of any potential problems or disasters, intercepted any issues so that I did have to deal with them, and paid close attention to detail. The best part of working with Trina was that I was able to have a worry free evening with my guests and was able to enjoy my wedding. I knew that Trina had everything handled. One of the many reasons why my husband and I decided to hire Trina over other vendors that we interviewed was because of her professionalism, knowledge, and experience. Trina and her team worked tirelessly throughout the day to ensure that everything went according to plan. She and her team were constantly present during the night to ensure that we were calm and comfortable, communicate with other vendors, guests, and me to ensure that our day went as planned. She set up the reception space beautifully and wrangled my guests (and groomsmen) to where they were expected to be throughout the day so that we could stick to our proposed timeline. Trina was there to reassure me, hide me and my bridesmaids away from the groomsmen and groom, ensure that our ceremony music and order ran smoothly, and even made sure that the train on my dress was picture perfect before I walked down the aisle. At the end of the night Trina and her team had everything packed away and stored for us to easily transport home. My husband and I were dreading the clean-up process by Trina already had it handled. I cannot communicate how thankful I am that I decided to work with such a wonderful day of coordinator and her team. If you are on the fence or unsure of whether you need a day or coordinator or wedding planner in general, just do it! Trina and her team are phenomenal are our day was seamless because of her and her team’s effort. We would hire her and her team again in a heartbeat and heartily recommend them to anyone in the need of a coordinator. Thank you so much!
We hired Lisa to be our on-site wedding coordinator a month before the big day, and she jumped right in and helped everything run smoothly and efficiently. She worked with the on-site staff to decorate and prepare the venue and she did a great job. Would recommend Lisa to others.
We had such a fabulous experience with Kimberly and her staff! Coming from an event-planning background myself, I was more of a type-A bride than I would like to admit. Two weeks before the wedding, I handed Kimberly a 40-pg field manual (unsolicited) with detailed instructions on how to set up the venue and a timeline detailing the day's events down to the minute. I'll be the first person to admit that it was not an easy road map to follow, and Kimberly and her staff executed it perfectly. The decorations looked better than I had ever imagined and the whole event ran incredibly smoothly, despite my husband and I making several changes to the plan on the day of the wedding. She and her staff were in excellent communication with our DJ, MC, and live musician, and virtually unseen by the rest of the guests. Moreover, she maintained an incredible attitude throughout and was a joy to work with. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience and I know our guests would agree!
Wedding Planning StacyAnn was absolutely AMAZING. I got in touch with her quite a few months before our wedding. Whenever I had a logistics question during the final months of planning, she was quick to respond and always had the answer. When it got to the actual month and weeks before the wedding, she was beyond amazing. The week of the wedding, she met with my mom, fiance, and me to go over final details and to finalize an incredibly detailed day-of schedule. She contacted all of the vendors to make sure that everyone was on the same page and that they knew the schedule. I didn't realize how much work that would be until I saw everything that she was doing. She was also a wonderful presence at the rehearsal, keeping us all on track and making sure that the wedding party knew what they were doing the next day. StacyAnn goes above and beyond. It was really helpful to know that I had someone who was going to make sure that everything went the way we wanted it to. I will absolutely be recommending her to everyone we know. Hiring her was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. She let me enjoy the final days of preparation and enjoy being a bride, instead of going crazy with all of the details. Words can't express how thankful we are to have you.
My husband and I clicked with Vanessa immediately. She is easy to work with, full of good advice for those of us who didn't have the patience to read all of the planning checklists and blogs online, and most importantly, she helped make our wedding day run smoothly and exactly as we envisioned, without the two of us having to worry about the details or directing or sheperding family members or others. Vanessa was well worth the investment we made in her services!
“Alyssa was my awesome day-of wedding coordinator for my June 2017 wedding in Fredericksburg. In addition to being there for the day of the wedding, she also came to the rehearsal the night before. She even stood in for one of my bridesmaids who was late to the rehearsal, which helped a lot! Alyssa made the next day go by without a hitch. She was the point of contact for all the vendors, making sure they were where they needed to be per my instructions. She carried out each task with grace and kept everyone calm. When it came time to introduce the wedding party at the reception she jumped to the rescue. I had forgotten to tell the band to introduce my parents and in-laws. She sprinted to the band with their names and nobody was the wiser. Alyssa Glorioso is the perfect wedding coordinator to have by your side. She will make sure your big day is glorious!”
Stacia was a complete JOY, to work with! She made our special day from start to finish The Best Day Ever! She was accountable, self motivating, very creative, she stayed waaayyyy ahead of schedule, and she really got in tuned with our style, as well as who we are as a couple, to create a PERFECT setting for our Wedding Day. She litterally took all of the stress of the planning process completely away! Her level of expertise about the whole wedding planning process, really put us at ease since I had never done this before. She is a business woman, and an artist! I could go on, and on an on, but the bottom line is I would advise EVERYONE to do yourselves a big favor by letting her make YOUR Wedding "The Best Day Ever!"
DIY handled my Wedding! From the beginning they came with unique ideas matching my color scheme, my style ideas and my budget. They were patient in allowing me the time to review their suggestions that fit with my needs. Oh, and their the small details... Everything was fabulous!!!
This review is for before the actual ceremony. However, I can say the process was easy and straight forward from package selection to setting the date. Shannon was very responsive and helpful answered emails and phone calls within a reasonable amount of time and always friendly! Her wedding officiant services added at no extra charge is really a plus for me! Also learn from my mistake. Youll have to get a PG county marriage license so make sure you have that 48 hours in advance! Cheers! -Chris
