We are so glad we chose Grey Rock Mansion as our wedding venue. Nancy was always there for any questions we had whether big or small. On the day of the wedding Bill and the day of coordinator were amazing! They were always asking me what I need...

It was easy to work with them. We did a private tasting due to time conflict with their group tasting and picked out our menus from there. On the wedding day, we were happy with the hors doeuvre - I had what they could bring to my room, but d...
id not taste the station food, but happy with the quality overall. We had a double entree (beef and salmon) for the seated dinner. Salmon was perfect, but beef seemed to be different from the one we had at our tasting... my husband and I both had the same reaction as soon as we received the entree. Service was fine overall.

My family first worked with Nancy Sachs at Simply Elegant Catering back in 2009 for my sister’s wedding, so when I got engaged, Nancy was our first and only phone call for catering! Both my sister and I had 300+ guests for seated dinners and Na...
ncy showed us again why we only considered her for my wedding! The food and service was absolutely amazing. Our guests are still raving about the food almost six months later. Nancy will also help you coordinate any rentals and other vendors you may need. Our tent, tables, chairs, dance floor, linens, flowers, cake, and lighting all came from her recommended vendors and each of them were just as fabulous as Simply Elegant. Nancy truly cares about her clients and makes sure they aren’t getting taken advantage of by a vendor or using someone she knows isn’t good. What a comforting feeling knowing that these important details are booked with tried-and-true vendors as well! Thank you so much, Nancy and Simply Elegant for making our wedding day absolutely PERFECT!

I can't say enough great things about Simply Elegant Catering and Grey Rock Mansion. It was the perfect location for our Christmas wedding. Truly a magical setting. Even better is the professionalism and dedication Bill Clowney, owner, brought...
to the table to bring my vision to life.
He helped to put together the perfect menu for our reception and was meticulous in his detail. The week before Christmas I completely changed all of the linen's and he as right there with new samples for me to look at and finalize. His coordination with the rental company was flawless.
As an event planner myself I highly recommend Simply Elegant Catering.

Beautiful ballroom, spacious tent, great value.
It was a little cold in the tent during dinner, even with the heaters going full blast.

Grey Rock was very impressive on many levels! My new husband and I were so pleased with their customer service and ability to solve issues before he or I ever knew about them on the wedding day. It was drizzling right before the ceremony, and t...
hey were very flexible with us as we made our decisions about whether to move inside. We ended up waiting 15 min to start the ceremony and were able to have it in the back garden as planned since the rain had stopped.
The inside decor is beautiful, especially by candlelight. They provide so many extra little things that make planning so easy. I would definitely recommend this venue to others!

She was more than accommodating with our many appointments and went out of her way to make sure our wedding was everything that we wanted and more.

Grey Rock Mansion was the perfect choice for our wedding. We had both the wedding and reception at Grey Rock and both were amazing. My wedding was in December so the Historic Mansion was decorated (very tastefully!) for Christmas. The food also...
was great (what I actually got to taste of it). But far and away the most amazing part of Grey Rock is the staff. The event coordinator was more than helpful thru all of my special requests as well as the staff who worked at the wedding. All were very friendly and met every single expectation I had. I couldn't have chosen a better venue if I tried!

We held our wedding at Grey Rock Mansion on August 11, 2007. Our wedding coordinator, Linnyette Richardson-Hall recommended it and it was the best decision we made, besides the decision to get married! :) The food selection was extensive and ...
they really honored our requests to put a Caribbean spin on our menu. I loved the fact that we didn't have typical wedding food, especially because I absolutely despise chicken breast! Our main course was a duo of crab cake and beef kabob with yellow confetti rice and it was scrumptious! The hors d'ourves were delicious as well, especially the passed lamb chops and the crab dip! We still talk about the crab dip to this day! They even allowed us to bring in our own authentic Jamaicancocktail beef patties and Jamaican wedding cake from outside sources. Janet was the rep that we worked with and she really got the job done! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because, we were not given a "picnic" basket of leftovers as requested. We were only given some crab dip and a few pita squares ; ( Overall, a wonderful experience that our guests still rave about!
