Do you accommodate dietary needs?
Kosher, No Pork, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian
Do you offer a tasting for potential clients?
We encourage brides to visit one of our weddings during the set up (at a public venue and well before the guests arrive). This provides the opportunity to see our team in action and walk through our event setup. Once the event begins, we bring our clients to the kitchen to have a mini tasting of hors d' oeuvres as we discuss their wedding and go over any questions they may have. Once the menu has been finalized, we offer a complimentary tasting with signed contract. The tasting is often paired with a design sample when the bride books both catering and design with our team.
Are you also able to provide the wedding cake?
We can provide the wedding cake or serve the bride's cake that is delivered to the reception site.
If a bride decides to bring her own wedding cake, do you have a cake cutting fee? If yes, how much is the fee?
We do not charge a fee, but only charge for rental of the additional china & flatware needed for service.
Are you licensed to sell alcohol? If yes, where are you licensed?
We are licensed to sell alcohol as part of our catering package anywhere in Florida.
Do you allow outside alcohol? If yes, what is the corkage fee?
We provide a "setups bar", which consists of sodas, mixers, juices, garnishes, ice, and all necessary serving equipment for $10pp. This price includes the corkage fee. However, we encourage brides to request bar package pricing, as often times the stress of a 
 "week of the wedding" alcohol run is not worth the money brides believe they save.
Do you provide rentals for items such as linens and flatware?
Yes we, we have the ability to cater a large group using our in-house china, glassware and flatware. We welcome custom designs of all rentals to help match and enhance the bride?s tastes.
Are you able to provide your own wait staff?
The Joy Wallace team is known for their service. Our team is trained in-house, as we feel it is the most professional way to meet our meticulous service standards.

I had my wedding at Comber Hall on June 28 and A Joy Wallace catered the event. From the day I met Tatiana, we received personalized service. The food at the wedding was fantastic and the service was second to none. All of our guests raved about the food and service and how smoothly everything ran. I would recommend A Joy Wallace to anyone looking for a caterer. We received great value for the price and quality of service.

A Joy Wallace was the best decision we made for our Wedding day. I recommend them 100% for your Wedding day. The food was excellent, amazing service, professional and caring staff, we couldn't have ask for more. Tatiana was so patient with us, we changed our menu and other things so many times and she was always happy to help us getting things done the way we wanted them or better. The day of the wedding everything was beautiful and perfect, I don't know how we would have done without Tatiana and A Joy Wallace.

A-MAZING!! From start to finish, they were simply first class! The food was impeccable, the service was flawless, and the presentation was beautiful! Tatiana was our contact person, and she was perfect! Every request was handled, and she suggested new and creative options that the wedding guests raved about! For late night snacks, they recommended mini eggs Benedict and crime brûlée donuts that were to die for!! I kept changing my mind, and I think there were 9 revisions before our final invoice! But they were always professional and accommodated every single one of my last minute additions. I will continue to use them for any catering needs I have in the future. I can't recommend them highly enough!

A Joy Wallace catered our daughter's destination wedding in Miami a few weeks ago, and we are extremely happy with the results. The presentation was beautiful, and everything was fresh and delicious, just as it had been at the tasting several months earlier. A number of our guests said that the food was the best they had experienced at a wedding. Kelley, our contact person, was very helpful. If we were to host another event in the Miami area, we would definitely want A Joy Wallace to provide the catering again.

A Joy Wallace handled all the catering and event design for our daughter's wedding in Miami. They created a magical event our family and guests are still talking about. For the ceremony, they transformed a concrete patio into an enchanted garden complete with fresh plants, hanging candles etc. It was amazing. And the reception was magnificent. The floral arrangements were breathtaking. The entire staff was professiona, personable and worked with precision, but didn't get in the way; the table settings were elegant, the meal looked and tasted great. I especially appreciated that I didn't have to ever ask for a thing or tend to guests. They anticipated our needs and lived up to their name - it was truly joyful! They created a memorable event for our family.

As I write this I don't know how to put into words that will fit this page on how many ways I was taken back and amazed by this company. This company inspires me in so many ways as I am a person who lives for all the little details and a perfectionist in every way. This team of experts when it comes to event planning are more organized and coordinated than Congress and The Whitehouse on an Innauguration LOL... I am so impressed with so many things from the coordination, to organization and how they got every single detail and idea from me and transformed it into the most special and intircate Wedding I couldn't even dream of myself. This group kept everything within our budget without going over and made my wedding look as amazing as a celebrity TV event. I will have family and friends still talking to me for decades on how amazingly beautiful this event was. From flower arrangements to the catering.. Everything was extremely exquisite and they didn't miss a single detail on my long list of must haves that I was able to fit inside my budget..lol. I cant say thank you enough to Tatiana, Jessica and Sabdy for coordinating and making my day so very special. Also some people that really helped make my dream special were Adelle & RIchard who took so many amazing notes to detail with my decor and design of this wedding. I just can't imagine it being any more special than it was. This team is completley dedicated to their craft. I have never worked with such kind and committed people as them. I am so very blessed and grateful that I chose them to coordinate the entire, design, decor and catering of my wedding. This was one special day I will never forget and I know it wouldn't have been possible with anyone else except The A Joy Wallace Group. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! so much. I wish you more success and more grand events than you have ever done in the past! I can't say Thank you enough for all that you have done for me and my family. XOXOXO

Joy Wallace is an exceptional catering and design company. We got married at Vizcaya Museum in Miami on 12/08/12 and Joy Wallace Catering and Design did a fantastic job. Not only are they professional, creative and talented but all the staff were kind and compassionate. I felt like the team became our family as we planned together a perfect wedding weekend in Miami. The FOOD was a hit and guests could not stop talking about the many creative dishes that were served. The decor was exactly what we planned and the service was first class! I could not have asked for a better team and I am thrilled that we were able to work with Joy Wallace's team. Kelley and Richard were absolutely amazing to work with...what a dynamic duo!!!

I am so happy we found Addy!!! Addy helped my fiance and I plan our small wedding in Bal Harbour on the beach. It was more beautiful than I expected! Addy was wonderful to work with and helped make our special day so memorable! She responded timely to my emails and calls, was extremely helpful in proving vendor resources, making all of the calls and setting up my ceremony, very professional and even pulled everything together with a last minute change in date because of inclement weather. She also added in some special surprises for us that were so thoughtful.It was really a pleasure to work with her and we are thrilled with the outcome of our event. Thanks again Addy! We highly recommend you and wish you great success!!! Hopefully we will see you the next time we are in Florida. Gianna and Keith

We could not have been more impressed with the attention to detail and the level of service we received when planning our wedding for the past year. Everything from the flowers to the food to the staff was perfect on our wedding day and we keep getting compliments on all... Our wedding coordinator, Mayrelis Febles, was fabulous and kept us sane and happy through the entire process!! Hope to be able to work with AJW again in the future.

The team at JWC&P treated us like family from the first consult!! They were extremely accommodating with our schedules since both our families are from out of town.

Sabdy and Richard went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was unforgettable. It is almost been a year to the date and we are still receiving rave reviews form family and friends.

Richard understood my vision from day one and his amazing talent and professionalism made the design process a pleasure. Everywhere you looked there were amazing flowers and decor touches.

Sabdy kept me updated at all times and made sure I was happy during the entire day. She is quick and reliable and always got back to me with amazing energy and happiness. She was as excited for the wedding as us.

I have recommended the team to family and friends and can not wait to work with them again! If you want first class service look no further!

A Joy Wallace will blow you away. Not only is the team extremely attentive and organized, but they are also very creative. I had some very specific ideas about what I wanted in terms of food and they listened to everything I had to say and executed everything perfectly!! And of course, the food was delicious. Seriously I have had so many people tell me how the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding, hands down. I strongly recommend them.

On the decor side I was equally impressed. The team worked for several months to perfect the decor and flowers vision. I could not believe how beautiful everything turned out. They will listen to everything you have to say and find a way to make everything work. Amazing!

A Joy Wallace Catering helped create the wedding of my dreams at the Deering Estate of February of 2010. The food quality and presentation supassed my every expectation. My guests still talk about the food at my wedding being the best they have ever had. We went to the tasting and the Chef personally discussed all of her creations. There was not one ingredient I would have changed but wondered how will they produce 150 plates at this quality? Well they did! The event specialist are with you every step of the way leading up to your big day and the fact that you have someone there you trust running the day of is a priceless additional value to their services. Their team is simply top notch professionals that you can count on for everything. Being in the business myself my expectations were very high and they far surpassed it. Thanks you again for the wedding of my dreams!!

All I can say is amazing! From the moment I met with their staff, and Joy Wallace herself, I fell in love! Joy was soooo sweet and made it a point to make us feel like we were part of her family. The service was impeccable...they thought of everything and handled everything. Mayrelis helped us along the planning stages and was uncommonly understanding and accommodating! They assigned us a "point person" (Andrea) for the day of our wedding and she was incredible. She anticipated every one of our needs, whether catering related or not, and made sure our families were taken care of throughout the night so we wouldn't have to worry about anything. She was on top of everything, and I mean everything, down to making sure mine and my husband's glasses were full all night long with our favorite wine. Needless to say the food was superb...our guests are still talking about it 8 months later! Joy Wallace Catering was way beyond our expectations and way beyond what any other caterer in town could have done. There just simply aren't enough words!

She anticipated every one of our needs, whether catering related or not, and made sure our families were taken care of throughout the night so we wouldn't have to worry about anything. She was on top of everything, and I mean everything, down to making sure mine and my husband's glasses were full all night long with our favorite wine. Needless to say the food was superb...our guests are still talking about it 8 months later! Joy Wallace Catering was way beyond our expectations and way beyond what any other caterer in town could have done. There just simply aren't enough words! Read less

My fiance and I were from NY and having a wedding in Miami. It was stressful enough to plan a wedding so far away, But the Joy Wallace team made everything so easy! It's a one stop shop if you choose to use all of their services which we did! The food was excellent that almost 2 years later my guests still talk about it. I would recommend Joy Wallace Catering for any event you may be having you will be very happy!

We looked far and wide for a caterer for our wedding. We wanted a company that we could feel confident could handle the job (100 person wedding - so not soo big, but at a venue without a kitchen) and could appease us with a couple special items that we wanted on the menu (I was insistent on a caprese salad and a mojito specialty cocktail, and my man wanted a dual plate main course of beef and fish). Like everyone, cost was definitely an issue. And the more, we search the more we realized that comparing caterers is not an apple to apple deal. So, we found ourselves choosing based on the capability of the caterer, and the professionalism and level of interest of the catering rep. We were taking long lunches and time off of work to meet representatives who were totally disinterested in hearing what we wanted, and more interested in making the sale and moving on. It was disgusting.

AJoyWallace isn't like that. From the moment we first called them, they were very courteous, and very helpful in helping us to sort out what would be served at our main event and how the whole event would go down. It was like it was as important to them as it was to us. And, they didn't try to push us to do something their way. They listened to what we had to say, and gave us options to choose from that were in line with our ideas. They understood that cost was an issue, and they would try to help us to keep the costs down while still getting the experience we were looking for. AJoyWallace is not cheap. They were the most expensive of the caterers we looked into. But, then again the apples. Once we looked into all the fine print from the other caterers, I'm sure we would have ended up with a larger bill in the end, if we didn't go AJoyWallace. The quote that we got from AJoyWallace was true to the very end; there were no last minute up-charges, or surprises. (Keep in mind that the number your parents have in their mind for a wedding budget does not apply anymore... inflation sucks! Shopping around for a caterer made us realize that quickly... our original budget concept was way off, especially for the food and service we expected.)

The food and service were outstanding! The waiters wore white gloves! Service was very quick, and quiet, and not obtrusive, and there was always someone there to fill your glass. We supplied our own liquor, and AJoyWallace provided bartenders. They packaged all the bottles up for us at the end of the night, and had them arranged in boxes, ready to be loaded into a car by the end of the night. They even cut, served, and boxed the cake (which my mom made).

Adelee: She was our coordinator at the wedding. She did an amazing job! She basically orchestrated the whole event; helped to move the night along from cocktail hour, to introductions, to speeches, to dancing. The whole evening would have fallen apart if it weren't for her. I can't praise her enough. She made my wedding happen, and made it happen beautifully!

My guests couldn't stop talking about the food and service. They still can't. I get compliments to this day (over a year later) of how wonderful my wedding was... and it's mostly due to AJoyWallace and Adelee.

If you can see past what seems like the highest quote, and want to work with a team who will make what you want happen, go with AJoyWallace. You will not be disappointed.

This vendor went above and beyond to ensure that my wedding day was successful. Their attention to detail was exquisite along with their level of professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is looking for a top notch caterer and design team. Besides the food and service being superb, their design team did an incredible job with not only the flowers but the overall feel of the entire event.

It was a dream day and a dream wedding and much of it thanks to A Joy Wallace Catering and Design team.
