From what we were told, ViVA used to be fantastic, but I heard that they changed management after we signed the contract for our wedding, and it was apparent. They made SO many mistakes during the planning process, communication was horrible, t...
hey changed their menu and refused to allow us to do a tasting with the menu that was assigned to us, they did not feed our photographer or DJ even though we paid for their meal, they did not put the salad dressing on the guest's salads... And those a just a small number of the errors they made. It was a huge headache from start to finish. Don't waste your money; they will cut corners as much as possible and will not live up to your expectations.

VIVA did a fabulous job catering our wedding reception. We could not be happier with both the quality and value. We got tons of compliments on the food and the service was spot on. We worked closely with Rachael, who is FABULOUS! She is met...
iculous with detail and met with us multiple times before the wedding to ensure that she truly understood us and our vision, and was ready to execute that vision. Rachael was there on the day of our wedding, had such a positive presence, and made sure everything flowed smoothly. Our experience was extremely positive and I would recommend VIVA again and again.

My wedding was 7/26/14 and Viva catered the entire event which included linens, china, food and the booze! Rachael Bryan was on top of her game. She was extremely punctual and got back to myself and my in laws with a answer or a solution the s...
ame today. She always provided a detailed scheduled and coordinated the time line with all of our other vendors. On the day of the wedding she stuck to our time line and also kept us int tune with what was coming next. If you are looking to just enjoy your wedding day and not have to worry about quality control then Viva is the way to go! Each one of our guest enjoy the dinner and happy hour. Everyone had a drink and all the food was hot from our meals to the tables in the far back! Plus we had filet and all were cooked to perfection. Viva also hosted our rehearsal dinner and hands down lived up to the standard for our family and bridal party. One stop shop!

Our wedding was great! Rachael from Viva is super organized and really helped to get me in the right direction for my wedding planning. She made sure that everything was perfect on my wedding day including little things like spreading my flower...
pedals around to tie in my colors as well as getting my favorite glass of wine during dinner. One thing I really want to make a big deal about is the fact that Rachael was not who I originally booked and planned my wedding with. The original lady left Viva and it really terrified me that my wedding would not go how I wanted, BUT, Rachael was AMAZING and I could not have asked for a better event planner or wedding location!!
We had our ceremony outside on the back patio and it was beautiful! I did not have or need any decoration. They also have other areas out in the grass that would be great as well.
The food was awesome as always for Viva. We had Crab cakes, salmon and steak and I did not hear one bad thing from any of my guests.
The staff there was very friendly and professional which is very important to me. I would recommend Green Valley by Viva to anyone looking for a great event space!!

ted round ones, so they brought them. They even brought pop rocks to rim the glasses for our signature drink!! They were there Friday as we decorated to help set everything up and even put on the chair covers and sashes that I rented. The only complaint I have is that during the planning process, my emails weren't always promptly answered, but I am also a technology junkie who has her cell phone on with email coming through 24/7, so I might be a little picky about that :) Overall, it was wonderful, and I am VERY happy we chose Viva!!
