Tony catered our semi-formal backyard BBQ style wedding reception. It was an enormous success! All of our guests talked about how delicious the food was and Tony's staff kept the wine flowing. Tony's menu was creative and well-planned, with options for everyone, from small children to vegetarians. The preparation was clean and fresh. He captured our value for well-prepared, fresh and healthy food. I would recommend Tony and his staff for any party!

Matt was great! I hired him as the bartender for my five hour, one hundred person, full open bar wedding reception. He handled the demands of the night perfectly. Even with us making some last minute changes and additions, he took on the task. Keeping the drinks flowing for 100 guests with an extensive and diverse bar menu for five hours could get messy. It didn’t. All the guests were very happy. He’s knowledgeable and professional. Leading up to the event, he advised us on how to prepare for the night. He showed up on time, got right to work, did what was asked of him, and is very reasonably priced. I would definitely hire him again.

What an amazing bartender! Brilliant Affairs had the pleasure to be at a wedding where Casey bartended. Immediately he seemed to be and was a friendly, and easy-going person. He was the only bartender at the wedding and did a splendid job. We ran out of cups and needed more ice during the reception so he went above and beyond his duties to go out and get more for the guests. We would highly recommend him to anyone! Cheers!!!

Anton was so wonderful to us during the whole process. From the first phone call, picking our buffett menu and pricing. We had a set per person price and he quoted us under it. We had impeccable service at our wedding reception. His staff treated my husband an I like a king and queen. Now to the food. The best I can come up with is amazingly awesome. Everything was way beyond my expectations. Every guest personally came to us remarking how superb the food was. I highly recommend Feast Caterers for any event you may need a caterer for. I look forward to planning another event with Chef Anton.

1. Even though the wedding was short notice, chef Kim took the job on and immediately got started, putting me at ease. 2. She was always available and would respond quickly whenever I would call, email, or text. 3. We were very pleased with the food, and the service. All of the guests had a favorite part of the meal, whether it was an hors d'oeuvre or main dish. I would certainly recommend chef Kim, and look forward to using her services again.

Shonta was fantastic to work with. She did the lighting and draping on the ceilings and walls at the hall we used for our wedding reception. She is pleasant and accommodating and worked with our vision - embellishing and making recommendations that she thought would enhance the look we were going for. The owners of the hall were blown away by how beautiful it looked as well as many of the guests. She transformed the hall into a magical space for our special day. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves but will say if you are looking for someone to work with who is good natured, honest and delivers on her promises, Shonta is your lady!

Clesha is an amazing person; highly professional as well as very nice. She did an amazing job planning our event- a wedding reception. She was really easy to work with (even though I hired her less than a month before our event) and I am really happy with the way our event decor turned out. I loved all the details from the floral stage backdrop to the centerpieces to the uplighting. It all looked perfect. I especially really appreciate the fact that she kept on checking on us till the end to see if we need anything else and there actually were some changes that we made last minute but she was really helpful in making things the way we wanted- I really appreciate that. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing decoration at their event and I will be calling you for my next event for sure. Thank You Clesha! You and your team did an amazing job!!

I cannot say enough about how amazing Denise is to work with. The candy bar at my January 13, 2018 wedding was beyond my expectations. I had almost 100 lbs. of candy for the bar. Her selections were unmatched by any other vendor I looked at (I looked at a lot!). The jars, scoops, and bags (with personal labels) were so beautiful and professional. We supplied her with some photos and other decorations and she set up the bar the day of with everything we gave her and she even added her own touches that made it truly beautiful. Denise was so easy to communicate with and responded quickly. I choose to pay for the candy bar a little at a time using PayPal and Denise was sure to send me an email to let me know she received a payment every time! I will update this with a photo or two once I get them from my Photographer (the candy bar looked so good that everyone went up there during dinner and I didn't even get a chance to take a picture before people went for it!). If you are looking for amazing quality, service, design, and price for your candy bar you found it here in Brilliant Affairs!!!

My husband and I rented a taco truck through Jerry's Kitchen for our engagement party turned surprise wedding and we were nothing short of amazed! We loved that Jerry's Kitchen uses texting for booking and venmo for payments, this really made booking smooth and convenient. Scott was so easy to work with and helpful with finding which truck suited our needs and budget. 5 out of 5 starts for sure! We will definitely be using Jerry's Kitchen for future party needs!

I hired Tina for my best friend's wedding shower and the experience was outstanding. The time and detail she took to design the table made her bites look as amazing as they tasted! All of my guests raved about the food, it's presentation and how sweet Tina was to speak with. Thank you for an amazing event!! Tina will be my first call for our next big party for sure. Highly and happily recommended.

Stephanie was a great wedding planner for my 2015 destination wedding. She found a place in Winter Park Florida which sat right next to the water and was very picturesque and beautiful. She arranged everything from the 1942 convertible Cadillac request to the decor at the ceremony site and the reception. Very beautiful. My family was so impressed with her work. Now, after seeing Stephanie's work, my daughter is using Everything is an Event for her wedding this year July 2017!

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I loved that Ronda got back to me right away, was able to adjust the menu to our liking and accommodate a fairly short turn around. She and Maurice were right on time, the meal was delicious and served with a wonderful attitude. All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased.

I booked John for my wedding reception there was no buffet or plate just heavy apps and John did an awesome job. There was 180 people and everyone was completely satisfied. The team was great we had a pretty large venue and they made sure every corner was reached so that way ever guest was served. So many of my guest were curious about where I found such an amazing caterer and I did not hesitate to pass along Johns information. John really cooks his food with love and pays attention to every detail. Thank you again Elite Flavors Catering you definitely made our day much more special. John was very generous and accommodating to my inquisitive great grandmother, he answered all her questions and even served her plate personally. Again thank you so much and I look forward to working with you on the future!

If you’re looking for a woman who can plan literally everything for your wedding to the point where you are being told multiple times that you are the most calm bride to ever get married? Well, that’s what happened to me! Look no further folks – With Fab You Bliss Occasions I whole-heartedly trusted Lauren with everything she had planned for us, and my husband and I were NOT disappointed! Where do I even begin when it comes to writing a review for Fab You Bliss? From the second I was engaged up to even weeks after my wedding, Lauren has been by my side and was always two steps ahead of me when it came to planning and anticipating my needs! She takes her time and pays mind to every single minor detail (she seriously hot glued a million tiny rocks onto a tree for another event I saw!) She genuinely takes her time to get to know you, your likes and dislikes, what you envision and she runs with it. Lauren managed to transform my parents back yard North Carolina themed oasis to a country haven for our engagement party, had the most stunning location and theme for a wine cellar bridal shower, flipped a Wildwood shore house into a mini-Dublin for my Irishfest BASHolorette, then topped it all off with making our dream a reality with our rustic barn wedding. I cannot even tell you how many compliments I have received on every single event, even months after the fact I still am told that my shower & wedding were the parties of the year, and I genuinely believe it! Hiring Lauren was hands down the best and EASIEST decision I ever made for our wedding, having that peace of mind & creative mind for our events truly made a huge difference!

Yoon and Letscultivatefood is fantastic in that the dishes were creative and w fresh ideas for our party. Pricing was surprisingly reasonable. We requested flavored waters and teas which were in glass containers on wood/tree blocks. Everything was labeled w a fun presence. My wife must have said a million times "everything is so pretty and colorful". All I can say is I ate and drank A LOT and still had food left over. Someone I know recommended letscultivatefood who used them for a Superbowl party (I think they did a variety of handmade sports related finger foods).. Yoon, can you please tell me how you made those drinks?? A+ - recommend for your next wedding, birthday, or holiday party..
