Do you accommodate dietary needs?
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.
What is your maximum catering capacity?

The team from A Joy Wallace was nothing less than superb. Since over a year Tatiana Cardenas was was helping me every step of the way for my destination wedding catering and rental needs.

She was extremely helpful, flexible, and incredibly friendly. Words cannot express how thrilled I was with this company's services.

I started my relationship with AJW and Tatiana on my first trip to Miami to scout some venues for my wedding. Tatiana met me at a couple of locations and catered to all my needs.

My heart was set on an authentic Nicaraguan cuisine meal for my wedding and Tatiana made sure everything her chef prepared for my tasting was not only authentic, but delicious, and affordable.

After a few tastings in person and via Facetime with my bridesmaids and my mother, we finally got my menu and signature drinks exactly how we wanted.

This team was exceptionally passionate about their work and their food and it showed. My family and my guests could not stop talking about the exceptional level of service from the waitstaff and how delicious the food was.

I recommend this company to any bride that is looking for a company that will go the extra mile for them.

Tatiana was that person for me and my wedding was everything I ever dreamed it could be!

I have to say that I am very surprised with Joy Wallace delivery of service. Everything looked so professional since the very beginning, but the day of the wedding they lacked tremendously. They didn't follow what we agreed on the contract. There was not enough food for my guest during cocktail hour.

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!

We could not have been happier with our choice, A Joy Wallace. They were kind, patient, and profesional. The flower arrangements and decor were beautifully done. They were able to aptly catch our vision for the reception and the "After Party"... Extremely pleased!

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
