  4. 4.   Wedding  Testimonials   Spring extra mile for us from beginning to end. We enjoyed planning our event with you because you made us feel comfortable and we loved your personality as well as your staff. Our guests loved the food... From the first tasting right down through our wedding buffet to the final cupcake! The Fun friendly atmosphere you provided was also amazing! The lighting you provided blew me away on the alter and like you said to thank for that! -- Tracey and Dan 2008 at Landmark on the Park Summer "You and your crew did a great job. The food was masterful and we received several comments about how "it was the best food Ive ever had at a wedding." The event was flawlessly smooth - even with the act of God thunderstorm. The service was impeccable, to the point that even my irascible family members had nothing to complain about...a true miracle! And, as for decor, you took a great raw space and turned it into a truly chic experience - with a totally different feel indoors from out, just like we requested. It was outstanding. What are you doing around the time of our one year anniversary...we were thinking of a little get together...."On a Side note - my friend and colleague, Liz, was telling me today how ridiculously hot the -- Matt & Dagmara 2008 at The Foundry F all and Winter and the flowers. Thank you, thank you l, thank you ! The Day definieitly would not have been as special if you would not have been involved! -- Tony and Roy at T he Foundry Even though its been a few months, everyone still is talking about how it is the best wedding they have ever been to. I think the custom Patron ice luge you had made for us had a lot to do with it! Even other people who were married at the Angel Orensanz, like we were, and had different caterers and event production are referring your services to other brides to be. Your passion for your work clearly made a difference in the final product. After looking around for the right caterer to handle the biggest day in my life to date, I knew that you would be the only one who could get the job done. You did not disappoint!! :) Everyone else I spoke with was so focused on getting out price quotes based on typical weddings, that they did not take the time to understand what look and feel we were going for on our special day. You took all of these things into account and made it happen within our budget. Its not everyday that a tequila inspired wedding comes along, and you made it come to life without flowers. Every last detail was attended to from the lemon/lime/aloe centerpieces to the model-esque staff. And the food....WOW! I never really liked wedding food, but who can pass up Chriss short ribs and potato crusted sea bass?? The mini burgers, french fry cones, and cocktail year old grandparents were up and dancing. After everything was over, I really wanted to get married all over again because we had such a great time and we have an amazing day to treasure for the rest of our lives. You made that possible! Thank you very much and I will always gladly recommend your services to any other --Jennifer and Josh Flame  Deal  LLC,  135  West  26th  Street,  4th  Floor,  NY,  NY  10001/  O  212-­991-­9910  C:  646-­520-­5525  F:  646-­895-­7564
