Renee was awesome to work with! Through Strange Events, I hired two licensed bartenders for my wedding this summer. They were amazing- very professional and from what I heard, excellent at mixing cocktails. Amidst all the wedding frenzy, I didn't even get the chance to meet them, but would not have even known someone had been behind the bar based on how spotless they left the space when done. Renee was also very flexible and understanding of a medical emergency that occurred the day before the wedding, and was just overall a pleasure to work with.

We hired Christine as the bartender for our wedding where we had an open bar serving wine, beer and soda. She arrived early, set up the bar and was very professional with our guests. Christine was a pleasure to work with and I'd recommend her services to others.

James and Frog and Turtle provided catering and bar services for my wedding in June. They were wonderful to work with. James was able to work with me to get exactly what I wanted within my budget. My wedding went perfectly, and the guests are still talking about how great the food was. The champagne was also a huge hit I have had numerous guests ask what kind it was. The servers and bartender were personable and professional which was appreciated by myself and the guests! Katelyn was absolutely amazing, and did everything to make sure my day went perfectly. She was in close contact via text/phone with my maid of honor, even after the event to make sure everything went great and to see if there was anything else we needed!

As a father of four girls I have handled my share of wedding tasks. When my youngest got engaged she asked me to pay for a wedding planner so that she wouldn’t go through the stress that her three older sisters had to while planning their own weddings. My wife and I found Alanna through the Knot. I was impressed with Alanna’s reviews and how highly people spoke of her. We setup an interview with her and within seconds we were set on her. I noticed that the other planners we met with charged a lot higher than Alanna for less work. Alanna picked the perfect venue in North Conway and planned every last detail. My daughter who is one that doesn’t like to make decisions loved that Alanna took charge. She planned more than just a wedding, it was a full vacation. She booked us a tee time at a course I wanted to play for ten years, she scheduled spa and yoga sessions, and the inn room that she put us is could not have been more relaxing. I haven't seen my wife so happy in years. When the wedding day came it was peaceful and enjoyable. I wasn't running out to get ice or setting tables or hunting down a missing box of decorations. My wife and I checked in with Alanna at noon to see how the venue was coming along and everything was already setup. Every table setting was lined up perfectly. The Dj, bartender, and caterer were on time and ready to go which I had never seen at the previous weddings. We got to be guests at the wedding for the first time. Alanna made sure we didnt worry about anything. The ceremony was beautiful. Alanna added in a bunch of little details that made my daughter feel like a princess. I could not have been happier when I saw my little girl in her dress. I wish I could relive that moment over again. The reception was just as great. Alanna selected the caterer, baker, florist, dj, officiant, and venue all off a conversation with daughter about how my daughter and son in law met and fell in love. She could not have picked more perfect vendors. They were all just incredible and well within the budget. Alanna ended up saving us money on the wedding. I almost want to have another wedding to pay for just to work with Alanna again. Maybe she will consider being our family's travel agent from now on. This woman is remarkable and it shows that she loves what she does.

She did a very good job for us. Definitely would use her again.


I serve alcoholic beverages and food. What makes my business great is meeting different types of people. I am a person pleaser. I am most happy when my customers are happy. I always make sure that my customers are happy.


If you want a divine dining and beverage experience, Tie Wright at Home should be your first and last call for catering, bartending, fine dining service, and wine tasting. I bring the grace of years of formal training as a professional dancer together with a Certificate from New York Restaurant School in Manhattan together to create experiences that delight the senses. For over twenty (20) years, I have been catering, bartending, and serving guests graciously and attentively. I provide fine dining service and catering for private functions of up to 200 guests including conferences, parties ranging in size from intimate family gatherings to large parties, gallery nights, and other special occasions. I prepare and serve alcoholic beverages, and I excel at pairing wines and food. I can help you select champagnes, wines, and other beverages according to your tastes and your budget. I am familiar with Kosher dietary laws and food handling requirements, and respectful of the traditions of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Additionally, I offer an in-home personal chef service, as well as a home delivery service for meals according to my customer's specific requests. This includes shopping service, preparation, and delivery. Because of my formal education, I have a thorough understanding of proper sanitation and food handling skills. I offer "white glove" cleaning service as well, so that you may enjoy being a host while I handle all of the details from set up to final cleanup. I am able to coordinate with, or supervise other team members to assure that your goal for a memorable and stress-free event is achieved. I look forward to talking with you about how we can make your next party or event into a work of culinary and beverage art!


Im professional, always smiling, and ALWAYS on time! Im upbeat and can handle a crowd.


We do small private dinner events up to 30 guests serving Italian cuisine and bartending for weddings, private parties and much more.


I am a professional bartender with over 10 years of experience behind the bar and an additional five years in the restaurant industry -- other than tending a bar. I have worked in some of the busiest, high-volume bars and restaurants in NYC and NJ as well as establishments with a more reserved clientele and a quieter, upscale dining atmosphere. I currently work in an unrelated field, but I continue to tend bar on a freelance basis.

I have a unique perspective being both in front of and behind the camera. I can relate well to new models and actors as well as those that want portraits and aren't use to being in front of the camera. I love working with children and they are quite drawn to me.


I have vast experience and expertise in my field.


I have fifteen years in the bartending business and have slung drinks from Maine to Colorado! I am a positive, responsible and hardworking bartender who loves to entertain! I do a wide variety of bar flair (flipping bottles, mixing tins and where allowed fire breathing). I am TIPS certified with a lot of availability!


I am very willing to cater to your needs and provide exceptional bartending services, whether it's a wedding, personal party, etc.

I try and put all My Life Experiences in every Martini & Cosmo I make.


I am a full-service bartender and a casual-to-fine-dining server. I am a great multitasker, and I have managerial skills.


I've been in the serving business for over 25 years and love to make people smile. I know it is all about the people that you are taking care of and to make them feel very special as they are. I have trained a lot of bartenders and my number one rule is don't ever go behind a bar if you are in any other kind of mood, but happy!


We're lovely bartenders who are so much fun. Enjoy great drinks and great company. Let me make your night or event even more memorable.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
