Using Sensational Host as our caterers was the best choice we made during our wedding planning process. From the beginning, Cory was super helpful, attentive, and comforting. He always answered any questions we had and was willing to work with us to make our catering package... Read More exactly what we wanted. Jeffrey was great in assisting with all of the details and providing us with guidance regarding our decor and accessories. He quickly responded to any emails and helped put our mind at ease in those stressful weeks leading up to the wedding. Cory was also there the day of our wedding and helped to ensure that everything ran smoothly from cocktail hour into the reception. Together they were a great team and we really couldn't have done the day without them. We cannot recommend the Sensational Host team enough!!!

We just used Sensational Host as our wedding caterer at Johnson's Locust Hall Farm and were BLOWN. AWAY. Chelsea, our point of contact, is an absolutely incredible person. She has an amazing attention to detail, an endless amount of patience, and truly listened to our wants and... Read More concerns. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I hope to have future events to plan with her! We love you Chelsea!! The food itself was AMAZING. When we went for our tasting they had greeted us at the door with a sign congratulating our engagement, champagne for us to toast to, and all of the table setting options we could ever wish to design with! The food was just unbelievable. We had the goat cheese stuffed chicken and have craved it so intensely that we have plans to request that dish from S.H. every year on our anniversary! They were also so excited to help us customize our menu to fit US. I hate BBQ but love pierogis - so she made us a pierogi BAR! And whats more of a crowd pleaser than that? A mashed potato bar... in martini glasses.. MASHTINIS! The food was fun, delicious, and a huge hit! And on to the lovely Bridget... Bridget, we love you. You were the best wedding event coordinator we could have ever asked for. She kept me calm when a thunder storm opened up at the start of the ceremony, handled all details with our venue contact, and kept us on time and focused. She was a beautiful soul that I couldn't have gotten married without. So if you want a caterer that cares, Sensational Host is the company to hire! Thank you all again for all your hard work!!!

When we were deciding who to go with, we went with sensational host because of Des who was there at the time and assured me that everything was going to be fine and that she would stick it out with me till the end. A couple months in, we get an email that she is no longer with... Read More the company. I was very upset that all they did was send an email and no one else contacted me for months. Normally, this should result in a phone call as we were deep in planning the wedding. This was a stressful time where we paid a deposit and wanted someone to help us along the way as this was our first and only wedding and we were spending so much money with them. Finally, after countless emails and phone calls, someone got back to us who was the manager. As time went on we were dealing with 2 ladies (who I think were new or didn't know what they were doing). They set a timeline but wouldn't follow it. I needed the table numbers for my name cards and they told me they would give it to me but never did. And then when asked for it again they told me to create my own table numbers as a template and send it to them. They told us that the final headcount would be 2 weeks before the wedding and that it was final. They asked for the headcount a week before the wedding. Also they said that all final payments were needed 2 weeks before the wedding as well. I ended up calling them myself 3 days before the wedding asking them if they wanted the final check. During the walk through they were late and tried to play it off as that was the scheduled time. How inappropriate! ********Lastly, they told me that no employees were allowed to touch the card box and they did and we were missing $2,000 dollars. We had to call the guests who didn't give anything which is very embarrassing for the guests and for us. And not only did they not do ANYTHING about it but they were also not considerate and just that they knew their employees didn't do it. So sorry. Then they asked me if I wanted to interview every employee that was at the wedding. How might this help me? This is the not the way I wanted to be treated as a customer from the very beginning when this is one of the largest purchases made for my one day wedding. Very frustrating company to work with. Hire and train better employees. This is also a stressful time for the bride and groom. Just be careful with the details because they were not detail oriented and they went back on their word.

There is a lot of positive things to say about Sensational Host. But let's start with the good stuff: the food. I had been excited about the food at our wedding for over a year after we had our tasting. The selection hors d'oeuvres is really expansive and there is something for... Read More everyone. Plus they can craft a more seasonal menu if that's what you want and really work with you to make things just to your preference. The entrees on the day-of were actually mind-blowing. The serving sizes are more than generous and everything was so wonderfully seasoned and creative enough that it wasn't just "wedding food" but still wasn't enough to scare pickier eaters. The most memorable dish for me was the strip steak. That thing was massive, and they were perfectly cooked. I managed to talk to a few guests who all agreed. The crab cakes were also really stunning. Another important thing to note about Sensational Host is the service. This really truly is one of the most professional services in the Philadelphia area. Working with Cory and Chelsea over the last year and a half was so effortless, so easy going. We spent a lot of time thinking "are we missing something?" because the process was so easy! They were quick to respond to anything, and on the day-of we had absolutely nothing to worry about at the venue. We literally just showed up and everything was done and perfect. The catering staff itself was also really wonderful. The servers, bartenders and our were all a ton of fun to be around. They were super friendly, fun and great company to be around, and a lot of them remembered us from the times we had been around Sen. Host for meetings and what-not, so it felt like a really personal experience. Our guests have since told me they enjoyed dancing with a few of the servers too so I know they appreciated the company as well. Sensational Host was perfect for us because it is such a professional, well-composed team at a price that didn't blow our budget. They made our day so worry free and fun and they made planning the wedding fun too. We were fully prepared for this process to be stressful and difficult, but we quickly learned that when you've got the right team helping you, it's one of the best things you'll ever do!
