Wedding and Event Catering

I would recommend Carmen Connor, owner of An Affair to Remember, to anyone wanting to have an extraordinary event! On May 17, I had my son's wedding rehearsal in the Concord area and it turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Carmen went above and beyond as a caterer. Not only was the food DELICIOUS, but she offered many suggestions, supplies, decorations, and help for our event to be PERFECT! This lady is very genuine, easy to work with, and willing to do whatever it takes to make your occasion special and unique. I not only had a wonderful caterer, but now I have a new friend! The whole experience was incredible!

Carmen was Ana amazing caterer to have! She catered my wedding with only three weeks notice and did a beautiful job! She helped decorate, set up a cheese and cracker buffet, and the meal she prepared was phenomenal. If you have her cater your event, you must request her Macaroni and Cheese! There was none of it left after my reception! Thank you so much Carmen! I couldn't have done this reception without your help! I will be forever thankful for you.

As a mother of the bride planning an out of town wedding, I must offer kudos to Carmen! She made every effort to hear and accommodate the ideas of both the bride and the mother of the bride, which were not always the same. She was able to navigate those challenges successfully. She made herself available on three different occasions to meet with us and discuss the details of the wedding plans and she offered very useful feedback, having served in this particular venue before. She catered the food, decorated the venue and provided all the greenery, bouquets, and boutonnieres for the wedding party. In spite of the kind of glitches often beyond ones control (e.g. a bit late after getting stuck behind an accident), she created the look and feel we were hoping for and both the bride and I were very pleased! A couple of stand out moments: Carmen ordered enough flowers to prepare more than one set of boutonnieres in case we were not happy with the coral color we had chosen (but we were!). The brides bouquet was very close to the picture provided by the bride and turned out BEAUTIFUL. The food was tasty and while there were not leftovers, no one left the venue hungry and we did not run out of food. Carmen really did everything possible to make this as close to "perfect" as it could be. We couldn't be happier. Thanks for all your hard work Carmen!! And a very special thank you for the extra effort at the end of the event!!! You're the best!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices are determined on a client by client basis. It depends on how much and how many services I provide.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My initial contact with a client is usually by text or email. Then we schedule a call when we can talk without distractions. We set-up the first of many meetings about food, decor and/or floral. I have clients that I meet with 10 or 15 times and some that I meet for the first time on the wedding day!! It's just about what the bride, groom or couple wants.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attend all the bridal shows I can and read all the latest magazines. There is a trade show (food and wine) that I attend almost every year. I am Safe-Serv certified and myself and bartenders are certified as well. I have 45 years experience in the kitchen and actually made my first biscuits from scratch in my great-grandmother's kitchen at the age of 4!!! I don't just make "fancy" food, I make great food!
