Teri Lands and her team were the single most valuable vendor that we chose, and they are directly responsible for making our day run as smooth and as wonderful as it did. They left no detail overlooked, were kind, p...
rofessional, and enjoyable throughout the entire planning process, and delivered on promises when others were failing. A truly experienced and knowledgeable operation.
First of all, the food was outstanding. On top of that however, Teri was able to change up the menu when we discovered our art gallery venue would not have a kitchen as previously promised, and offer choices that could be prepared without conventional methods, yet also without compromising taste and quality. Literally every single person weve talked to since our big day has mentioned the food and how delicious it was. Perhaps more telling, there was only 1 small box of varied desserts, some salad, and a small box of side dishes left over at the end.
Our coordinator, Teri Lands, was the brains of our entire day, and made sure that everything would run the way it needed to; the MVP of a huge team, and lucky for us, because she made sure things were happening that we had never (and would've never) even considered. Timely, efficient in her renting and ordering, straightforward with finances, and flexible in managing the small details. Her experience was markedly evident, and she was able to offer suggestions to make our day stand out from other weddings without sacrificing elegance or increasing the bottom line (serve your own sangria and mojitos at cocktail hour?!). Teri was absolutely incredible. Unless you've already been married or already work as a wedding planner and know what to expect, you are doing yourself a disservice to hire anyone else.
Lastly, the team of catering staff she brought to our day were impeccable. Her on site lead Toni was there the day before to examine the site, work out any kinks ahead of time, and even brought us a small table from home to use in the bathrooms. The rest of the staff were on time, efficient in setting up, and interacted with our guests just enough so they enjoyed themselves without taking their time away from other family and friends. The small things are what set them apart; taking extra time to find more of the foods people liked; serving coffee and dessert from the buffet to our elderly guests who were too tired to walk around as the night got older; actually enjoying the night along with us, instead of just serving us coldly.
I can go on forever. There is reason they've won the Knot awards so many times. You owe it to yourself to call and speak with them. Other caterers may be able to do as good a job, but no one is doing it better.
Teri, if youre reading this, thank you again!! So happy to have shared our day with you!! Love Billy Michelle and Kayleb
