The team nailed everything without a rehearsal practice. Cellist played for dinner, and played beautifully and expressively, as if it were his own show. Team was very flexible and open to locating and playing music they had not yet played previously.

Service was courteous, on time, and exactly what we needed. Driver was well-mannered, easy-going and friendly. Cost was a little bit higher than expected (did not compare prices, but just higher than what we thought a car would cost), but service was wonderful.

Neutral

Cake was beautiful and well-presented on the outside decoration. Cake itself could be a little more moist, have a little more flavor and be a little less crumbly, but overall was great. Pastry chef was at tasting and very positive and easy to work with.

Jackie made custom designs for us and really listened and adjusted the look to give us what we wanted. So energetic, bubbly, and positive - such a joy to work with. We couldn't be happier with our invitations and stationary!

Highly Recommend!

Staffing was plentiful so food was brought out timely for each person and table. Service was graceful and courteous. Chef was at tasting and was able to make exactly what we wanted, even gave us a couple of chances to make modifications right there at the tasting. Food varied a tiny bit from the tasting and the printed menu in the end, but everything tasted wonderful, especially for the amount that had to be made. Presentation was beautiful and overall, we would highly recommend them!

Staff was very accommodating on the beverages you would like to have, and even allowed us to bring our own (for a fee). We did not get the wines served at the times we requested, but overall, the service was wonderful.

Brought the venue to life and really ran with our ideas and theme. Mock up was well done and Sara and her team really listened and gave us the look we wanted. One gorgeous flower at the mock up was not at the final event, but everything was beautiful. Staff was very attentive at the event - even covering and uncovering the flowers and tables more than once with the intermittent rain!

Beautiful space with river view. House is well-maintained and gorgeous, giving event a feeling of grandeur. Staff was very responsive and went out of their way to accommodate all of steps in the process from start to finish. Book early!

Augusta and her team were a DREAM to work with. No matter budget or style, Augusta will give you her honest opinion tactfully and steer you in the right direction. She and Easton will bring a level of sophistication and class to your event. Augusta is so graceful and professional - she is always patient, well-prepared, organized, and on top of everything for every phone call, email or meeting. She truly is a professional in her field and I wish I could work on her with everything else in my life!

Virgil is energetic, creative, professional and positive. Both engagement and wedding photos turned out wonderfully. We got more than we asked for and he even helped the men with their bow ties. Make sure you think about all shots you want to have so you can take advantage of the opportunity to work with him!

Very friendly and accommodating, listened to what I wanted and followed through. Even brought additional tools to make the final event even better than our trial run. Learned some good tips from her and liked what she did so much that I even bought similar make up colors after the trial run. Charlotte and her team were patient, well-prepared and performed their best. Ask party to have pictures and be ready to explain what they want so they can take advantage of working with the team and be clear about what they are looking for. They can do it, they just need a visualization - don't be shy!
