We had a small, more intimate wedding in a historical building in Ridgewood NJ. Lisa at "FFT" was fantastic! She took the time to understand the look and feeling we wanted for the venue and was able to guide us through the myraid of choices. ...
She was great with letting me run with the aspects I wanted to be in charge of but never letting me feel overwhelmed. For example, she took over all the furniture and linen rentals yet I wanted a more Jane Austin kind of feel with embroidered overlays that I wanted to find myself. When I had difficulty finding what I wanted she provided guidence allowing me to find exactly what I wanted. Our reception had the elegant, timeless feeling we wanted.
The Food was the most important choice for us because most of our guests have a very educated pallet, some having traveled to Europe for cooking classes or simply a meal. From Hors d'oeuvres through dessert everything was on the mark. We opted to offer entree choices of Filet Mignon, Chilean Sea Bass, Free Range Chicken & Rack of Lamb and even with so many detailed entree selections everything was PERFECT. We had a friend hire Food For Thought for their wedding on the spot.
Lisa's waitstaff is also perfect. You'll find them friendly, polite and also displaying an attention to details that was just impecable. At times it was almost as if they knew what you wanted or needed almost before you did..
Lisa does everything in her power to make sure the Bride and Groom are able to enjoy themselves. She goes so beyond any caterer I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail was so perfect there isnt enough space to list all the ways she made the evening stressfree for us. We even had an immediate family member show up with an unplanned for guest. Lisa saw to it that we werent the least bit stressed by it.....place settings were arranged, seating and meal provided and all without my knowing anything was amiss. My new husband and I actually got to enjoy our fantastic dinner and our guests......and had a wonderful time at our own wedding!
The baker we hired delivered a green wedding cake instead of the white on white we ordered.....Lisa didnt want me to be upset by anything and managed to make theirmistake less noticable by adapting things to a dessert table and changing how things were displayed. She made it ok.
Our wedding reception was perfect!!!!!! I was so proud of how it turned out and our guests are still talkking about it almosgt 2 months later and i know that was all because of Lisa, her attention to detail and her staff! I am so proud of how things turned out I am only saddened that I couldnt display pictures in this review.
