  • I wish I could have met you in person to thank you so much for all that you have done! Everybody LOVED the food (all of it!!! It disappeared, and was the perfect amount). I got a lot of compliments, including from a friend of mine who is super particular and critical about EVERYTHING. It honestly couldn't have been better and my Dad said you were so nice and explained everything to him. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You made my wedding day a huge hit.
