Dear Herb & Staff, Our wedding was better than we imagined and in large part because of you & your staff, The food was excellent and received many compliments from guests. Perhaps most importantly, you were our true “master of ceremony”, arranging everything from chairs, centerpieces, venue help, to lifting boxes. Couldn’t have done it without you! Couldn't be happier!
Dear Herb, This letter is to express our gratitude and excitement with the service and food provided at our wedding reception. From the beautiful arrangement of dishes and silver to the extraordinary tasting main entree (the lemon herb chicken), we were extremely impressed. You, no doubt, have perfected serving this type of event and have God-given talent to "run the show". The service to both of us was 100%. It seems every time we set a fork or drink down, a member of your staff was there to replace it. You and your entire staff did a wonderful job and we can't thank you enough.
The food was delicious...Delivering and setting up on the construction site can be quite a challenge yet you handled it with speed, efficiency and, most of all, a great sense of style! Always a pleasure to work with (Your personal Chef Caterers) and staff.
