Where to even begin…my fiancé and I booked our wedding with the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg where Olympia is the official catering partner. We booked the venue because we were in love with the setting. Little did we know that we would find one of the best catering... Read More companies in Tampa Bay by doing so! We worked closely with Nancy Cotto who was very helpful in giving us all of the information we needed and providing timely answers to our questions throughout the wedding planning process. She was so quick to respond each time we had an inquiry and this was absolutely invaluable. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests raved about everything from the appetizers to the late-night snack! We chose a set plated menu including steak and mahi-mahi for the dinner at our wedding. The meals came out on time and were very well prepared and presented. I wanted to specifically mention Olympia’s incredible team as a whole. The team that worked our event was beyond professional and accommodating and they worked together to make our event spectacular. We were more impressed by them than anything else. The banquet captain was Tata, whose hard work and leadership made our evening seamless. The Olympia bakery made our wedding cake, which was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. We met with Debbie, the cake specialist, to choose our flavors (they had quite the selection available) and design our cake. We went with a simple white three-layer cake which our florist decorated with fresh flowers, but I saw many options from this bakery and there doesn’t seem to be much they can’t do. We loved our cake! Overall, we had nothing but the best impressions during and after our event. A wedding is one of the biggest and most important days in a couple's life and Olympia clearly acknowledges that and treats your big day like it is the biggest event of theirs as well, making sure each detail is taken care of to perfection. This is what really stood out with this group and everyone at the Museum of Fine Arts for us!

Once we tried the delicious food and learned that the wedding cake was included with the catering, we were sold! It was such a relief to have the cake included and to not worry about hiring another vendor. The cake designer, Debbie, was also wonderful to work with! She was prompt in responding to emails and very helpful in designing our beautiful cake. I showed Debbie pictures of cake designs and also requested a special icing flavor that was not offered on the menu. Our flavors were white chocolate icing with white cake and a chocolate raspberry filling. Debbie provided a sample mini cake with our flavors to ensure we liked the flavors before the wedding. Debbie and her team made the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake I have ever seen and tasted! For our food, we selected four passed hors d'oeuvres and the buffet option with two entrees. On the day of our wedding, our guest kept complimenting us on the food throughout the evening! To this day, I'm still receiving compliments about how awesome our food and cake tasted. I really appreciated Donna's efforts in staying within our budget and providing surprise gifts the day of our wedding!
