From our first email correspondences to the end of our wedding reception, Festivities and their team were AWESOME to work with. And they continued to be awesome AFTER the end of our reception, as they grabbed a couple of our personal items that were left at the venue, and delivered them to our house the next week! If you want a simple review: we'd use them again in a heartbeat because they were professional, reliable, responsive, and provided a high-quality service at a competitive price. For an extended review, read on: Our tasting with Ashleigh Glod was excellent - the food tasted great and it was easy-going and we felt comfortable being honest about what we loved, and what we though we would like more of. After the tasting we expressed that we wanted to have ample eats for our guests during our Cocktail Hour and we added a Wall-of-Food (in the jars, see pictures, Burrata Vasi was UNREAL) and some additional appetizers. My personal favorite was the Steak & Potatoes twist STEAK FRITS which was a crispy potato chip with seared rare beef and Bearnaise Aioli...everyone was talking about it and friends have tried to re-create it since the wedding. Our Wedding-Day team was: Coordinator - Merlot D Captain - Garrett Servers - Graciela, Haley, Stacy, Tre, Paul & Lan Chef - Tom They worked seamlessly to ensure that we and our guests had a great experience. Drinks and appetizers were easy to access, and empties were cleaned almost before they were set down. Merlot gave us extra-special attention making sure we had an assortment of appetizers waiting for us in a private space immediately after the ceremony, along with our favorite cocktails and bottles of water. She did the same for our wedding party and it was nice that none of us had to worry about any of that. She also had to-go containers ready for us to eat between the reception and the after-party...not her first rodeo. It was an easy choice to give Festivities and their team 5-Stars.
Delicious!Reviewed on 8/26/2014 Erin S
The food for my wedding was amazing. I had so many people come up to me during and after the reception letting me know how much they enjoyed the food. I had a lot of "foodies" at the wedding and for them to describe the food as delicious is quite remarkable. There was plenty of food and they even did a kids menu for us. I am still hearing from people today how much they enjoyed the food. It was THAT good! Myra was a joy to work with and had everything covered.
Thank you, Festivities, for the Perfect Event!Reviewed on 7/27/2014 Joni .
Festivities Catering recently provided outstanding catering services for our wedding that was held in the Japanese Friendship Garden on July 19th. From the very beginning, the team at Festivities understood that we did not want a “cookie cutter” wedding reception, but rather, a customized experience that would represent us as a couple. We worked with Matt Berardi, who acted as the event coordinator for our reception. Matt immediately realized that we had high expectations for the event, and that we wanted everything to be perfect. Because the event was at the Japanese Friendship Garden, the menu needed to reflect the Japanese culture. This was no problem for Matt, who quickly proposed a menu to please the most discerning guests. And on the wedding day, the food was beautifully prepared and presented. Also, it was truly delicious, thanks to Chef Darren and his team! Festivities handled the décor, and coordinated the rentals for our event. Again, Matt understood our desire to respect the simplicity and elegance of the venue, as well as the culture, so provided lovely wooden farm tables, Japanese lanterns, and an amazing sushi bar, which served fantastic sushi, rolled to our guests’ specifications. On the day of the wedding, not only did we have Matt to oversee every detail, Festivities also provided a lovely wedding coordinator, Nicole, to assist with the ceremony! This was an unexpected bonus that really made a difference in keeping the evening running smoothly. Every single thing went perfectly – there wasn’t one problem all evening! Each of our guests commented on the beautiful setting and amazing food that were provided by Festivities. Some of them are real “foodies”, so their comments were especially meaningful. In fact, several guests said that the wedding was the best that they ever attended! I highly recommend Festivities Catering for all events. The entire staff is professional, responsive, and talented! We will be using Festivities again for future celebrations, and are confident that they will deliver the same 5-Star service that they provided for our wedding! Thank you Matt, Nicole, and Darren for the spectacular evening!

Even our most picky guests adored our dinner. The food was delicious. TK&A was always very willing to work with us throughout the planning process. I highly recommend them!
Best Food EVERReviewed on 8/28/2012 Laurel S
I love TK&A! Taylor (the coordinator), made my dream for an upscale, comfort-food wedding come true. ALL our food was delicious and we keep receiving compliments from friends. The menu he created (with my / my husband's input) was creative, beautiful, and most of all, mouth-watering. TK&A also catered my rehearsal dinner, and it was fabulous. From duck tacos to shrimp-stuffed chilis to jalapenos cheese bread, everything was exactly perfect and perfect.
Ashley CecaciReviewed on 7/24/2012 Melissa C
Although there were some mishaps at the location of our wedding and ceremony, the food provided by Festivities Catering was out of this world! Everything from the sliders to the asparagus was absolutely delicious. Our coordinator with Festivities was Ashley Cecaci who was amazing as well. Ashley went above and beyond to accommodate not only my husband and I, but also every single one of our guests. We worked so closely together that she became more like family instead of a business associate. I would most definitely recommend Festivities Catering to anyone and even more, Ashley!!! Thank you again Ashley for making everything run so smoothly on our wedding day!
