Sensational Host was absolutely amazing. I don't have a single bad thing to say about them. We went in with a budget and they helped us get to that mark with ease. Cory and Kara walked me through every step and kept me updated with any changes, payments, or important dates along... Read More the way. Contacting them was so easy, if I asked a question they got back to me that day or early the next.. It was just so easy dealing with the them haha! I had 260 people at my wedding and everything went off perfectly. The day of my wedding I didn't have to do anything, they made sure everything was the way I asked it to be from from timing to decorations to service. And everyone raved about the food!!! It was soooo good!! It was perfect. Thanks Sensational Host!!!

Sensational Host went above and beyond our expectations on our wedding day! From day one our event managers were a pleasure to work with - they answered all my questions ( and I was a bride with a lot of questions and attention to detail!). I also didn't have a wedding planner,... Read More which was ok because Sensational Host not only catered our event but it was like having a wedding planner also! They took just as much care to each detail that I did and it showed. They transformed our venue, provided an excellent and attentive staff for our event, and the food was INCREDIBLE. We received genuine compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the food. I am so happy we chose Sensational Host to be part of our wedding day - it was perfect!

Can't imagine anything less than a 5-star review for Sensational Host!!!!! Sensational Host was outstanding from our initial contact through the wedding day. We could not be happier with the food, service, and incredible team that guided us through the whole process.... Read More Sensational Hosts wedding menu for the Camden County Boat House was DELICIOUS, modern, fun, flavorful, and completely personalized. Every guest said the food was amazing and it didn't taste like regular "wedding food". Not one person left hungry. We were so fortunate to have Kara and Cory by our sides every step of the way - super responsive, wonderful ideas, great energy and paid attention to every detail. They both went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was exactly what we visioned. I truly could not have planned our wedding with out them. We felt we were in good hands every step of the way, and knew that on wedding day, our guests would be well taken care of, too. We could not speak higher about Sensational Host and their team, and would recommend them to anyone getting married or hosting an event! Thank you Cory and Kara for giving my Husband and I the wedding of our dreams!

Great Choice

Overall excellent experience working with Sensational Host. Our event planners Cory and Kara were very responsive to our needs and questions throughout the wedding planning process. We were very happy with the DJ and cake which were included in the package. The food and service... Read More were both good. When looking at the final invoice cost, and the quality of the food/service we received, I'm definitely glad we decided to go with Sensational Host.

They helped make our day amazing!!

Corey and Kara were our planners and they were great! We were impressed with them from the first meeting and they continued to impress us (and eventually our guests). Unlike other caterers we interviewed they worked with us to make our wedding day our own, and didn't just try... Read More to give us the same wedding they gave everybody else. Whenever we came up with an idea, they provided us valuable input on how it could work and offered ideas for tweaking it based on their experienced. We were greatly impressed with both everything they did to make the wedding day our own, and the food! We couldn't have been happier with our wedding day and that is, in large part, due to Sensational Host!

Excellent service!

Choosing Sensational Host to cater our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We got married on October 17th at The Historic Smithville Mansion. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and Sensational Host is a big reason why it was the most perfect day. Through my entire... Read More year of planning Cory and Kara were excellent. Any questions or concerns I had they were both quick answer. Anything that I needed to rent, or wanted to find Kara was on top of it and makes wedding planning easy! I was a little nervous the day of that a lot of stress would fall on me because our wedding was not at your traditional venue. I was WRONG. They did everything for me. Decorated the tent and ceremony exactly the way I wanted it, and they directed the entire ceremony so I did not have to worry about a single thing. Not only are Kara and Cory the best, so is the entire staff. Before and after the ceremony they made sure us and our bridal party always had a drink in hand and I was followed around with a tray of hors d'oeuvres because they wanted to make sure I ate! ( as if I already didn't feel like royalty that day!) At my reception one of my guest was sitting down the whole time due to bad knees. The wait staff quickly picked up on that and served him his drinks all night, and it was really appreciated. Excellent Service. Our guests are still talking about how great the service was!! Sensational Host doesn't just cater and serve your guests food (great food!), they go above and beyond anything I could ever imagine. Thank you Kara, Cory and the Sensational Host team for making our wedding the BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!!

If you looking to plan the wedding of your dreams, then you must work with Sensational Host. We had our event at Collingswood Grand Ballroom, but they work with many beautiful venues in the South Jersey/Philly area. Cory was great at helping us to customize our wedding... Read More package to include all the details we wanted, while staying within our budget. Kara is amazing with details and timelines - she kept us on track, without adding stress. She had great ideas to compliment some of the visions I had for our day and helped add things to our wedding that I never knew I wanted! :) Cory and Kara were always prompt to answer emails and phone calls - which is HUGE when your coordinating all the details involved in a wedding (which was even more than I expected). They helped me with any wedding detail.. even if it had nothing to do with the venue or catering! The wedding night... it was awesome to see every detail come to life. Both the presentation and taste of the food was AMAZING. We received compliments from our guests all night. David was our Maitre'D and he was the best! Not only did he make sure we always had a drink in our hands and a taste of all the different hors d'oeuvres, he even helped with my bustle when my mom was too overwhelmed with happiness to remember what the seamstress taught her! If I could do it all over again... there is not one thing I would change! Thank you to the entire Sensational Host team for making our dream wedding become a reality! xo, Amanda & Bill

We had the BEST experience! Our wedding day was everything we wanted it to be and we had no worries of anything going wrong. The music was great, the food exceptional (people are still talking about it), and the service incredible. Everyone was so nice and attentive and not just...

I recently had my wedding this past September, and Sensational Host catered my event. When I first started talking to the company, my contact was Keegan. He helped me through the tasting process, and kept me informed with everything. After our tasting we canceled all other...

Great people, poor execution

Reviewed on 7/27/2015 Lisa M

We worked with Tyler and Kara. Both very nice and friendly. Easy to work with, very flexible. We just had some mishaps during the actual event. Initially we wanted two bars, but we were talked into one with 2 bartenders, yet there were still long lines. Bartenders ran out of... Read More basics like limes and did not display the liquor so people did not know what we had. One of the pasta station cooks admitted she had never done it before and several guests got cold pasta. We had also requested champagne and wine to be passed around to alleviate some of the bar lines and that was never done. Finally, we have some picky wine people in the family so we made sure to have dessert wine but it was never put out. The room looked beautiful and the food tasted good, but just execution-wise was not what you expect from spending so much money.

We are happy to say that we worked with Cory and Kara to plan our July 11th, 2015 wedding. We contacted Sensational Host back in the beginning of 2014, and emailed back and forth to see if they met our requirements for what we were looking for in a caterer. We met with Cory at... Read More the Camden County Boathouse and we were instantly impressed by him. He went through anything and everything we needed to know about S.H. and what they had to offer. We walked out of the Boathouse knowing that we were going to work with them and we couldn't wait to get started. We met a few more times to just go over the details from food, set up, decorations, etc. Eventually we met Kara who, for me as the bride, was more than I could have asked for when it came to a wedding planner/coordinator. When we didn't know what linens to chose, she worked with us to really paint the picture for us. My husband and i are extremely visual people and this whole process was very difficult, not being able to see what we were planning along the way. Kara helped us to understand and "see" what the day was really going to look like. As time went on and I sent about a few hundred emails to Kara and Cory with those "small" questions, they responded every time quickly and clearly. Never making us feel like we were burdening them or asking too many stupid questions. We felt like we were emailing friends of ours to ask for help with something. No question was too small or insignificant. They were always happy and willing to answer any question or concern we had. They always made us feel comfortable and at ease with the entire planning process. When he day finally came, we had nothing to worry about. Cory, Kara, and the entire Sensational Host staff was truly SENSATIONAL. They transformed the Boathouse into a wedding that really tailored to our individual personalities and tastes. From the family picture table, to the guest tables, and the head table, every detail was beyond beautiful, and if it wasn't for them, it wouldn't have looked nearly as great as it did. The bartenders were very friendly, quick getting our guests their drinks, and never let my husband or I go thirsty. Our Maitre'D was so attentive to our needs. We were starving while we were taking pictures with the photographer, so she brought us hors d'oeuvres, then noticed which ones we ate the most of, and brought us more of those. She brought us drinks before our drinks were even finished. She truly made us feel like royalty. The service over all was phenomenal. Our guests were so pleased and so impressed by every detail. Everyone told us how great the waiters/waitresses were and it truly showed. Unfortunately, it was our fault for not contacting the Boathouse ahead of time to see if we could leave our decorations there for the night, but the SH staff was so helpful in packing everything up and helping us get it out onto the bus so we could transport it to the hotel. Overall, if my husband and I were to get married again, we would choose Sensational Host every time, from the food to the service and back again, everything was beyond our expectations and we highly recommend them. Cory, Kara, and the entire Sensational Host staff, we thank you for making our wedding day so special, and one we'll never forget. Wishing you all the best, Brian & Emily Ehret
