GUEST TESTIMONIALS

"I just wanted to thank you, so much, for all your help with our event last night! You and your team are a pleasure to work with and our guests enjoyed every minute of the event. I look forward to working with you again in the future and please, if you need anything, don’t hesitate to ask! Thanks for everything!" - Lauren S., IFBTA

"Jessica, you and your team (Laura, Richard and serving staff) who managed and hosted our event were outstanding! Laura and Richard had the perfect sense of timing when beverages needed to be re-filled and when tables needed to be cleared for the next culinary experience. The salads and the charcuterie display were well displayed and maintained. When the protein items were brought to the tables, the display and attention given by the servers were first class. Jessica, thanks again for an outstanding evening." - Tom M., US Foods

"Just wanted to thank you once again for all your work -- you helped make our big day a huge success and I am so thankful that you were so great to work with. You were nothing but kind, patient, and helpful with all of the questions we had and I am so thankful for that! This was the best weekend of our lives and all of the guests seemed to love everything about it. Many thanks to you and the others at Zed451 for making this work. Thank you so so so much! Again, you were so great to work with. It was great to plan with you and I wish you all the best!" - Hyun and Martin
