I am a controlling-micromanaging-perfectionist-wanna-be freak so when I found out the wedding venue I wanted had an exclusive contract with Country Garden Caterers, boy o boy did was I in a conundrum. Not only were we on a tight budget but we ...
wanted great and ample food, an open bar, and excellent service too. Country Garden Caterers met all our needs and then some – several of our guests have praised us on how excellent food, drink, and service was.
Diana - she is a crazy busy woman but she always responded within 48 to emails and 24 hours to text or calls. She is very energetic, peppy and was great throughout the whole entire 18 month planning so much so I hired her as my day of coordinator (DOC). We were so grateful she was our DOC, she put up with my crazy, needy, entitled family and friends. As well as made sure we (bride and groom) were fed, well hydrated with vodka, and the day was on schedule. I was able to trust her judgment and expertise to let her take control on the day of and the wedding turned out amazing. If you are more OCD than me, just let Diana know and she will totally make accommodations. Sometimes you have to remind her more than once though.
Food - cocktail (appetizers) hour, sit down dinner with prime rib or salmon.
Bar - premium package for five hours and she let me bring my own pickles to go with the vodka!
Ceremony and Reception – used signature rental via Diana and she handles the set up and clean up.
Everything was provided by Country Garden Caterers except DJ, cake, photobooth, floral, photographer, videographer, wedding insurance, stationary, and venue & decor.
