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.

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.

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.

My wedding day could not have been the same without Joy Wallace. My coordinator Tatiana Cardenas was incredible. Their level of professionalism and attention to detail was nothing short of amazing. From my initial consultation when I arrived, they had a parking spot reserved for me to the actual day of, there was not a step along the way that they faltered. Most importantly the food was delicious!

Tatiana was such a pleasure to deal with. I cant' wait to plan my next event with them :)

We had heard great things about Joy Wallace, but even those reviews understated how truly amazing this catering company is. Every meeting, phone call, and email demonstrated such incredible professionalism, and it is very evident that they breed that same professionalism throughout the entire company.

Our event coordinator was Tatiana Cardenas. Tatiana was absolutely INCREDIBLE!! She was so kind, incredibly helpful, very responsive, and extremely intelligent. We had so many questions and Tatiana helped us out with every single one. She answered emails almost instantaneously and always with a smile. She gave great advice. We will definitely stay in touch with her for years to come as our friend. We just loved her!

We got married on January 17, 2015 at Church of the Little Flower and the reception was at Comber Hall.

The Joy Wallace team arrived right on time for set up. Tatiana and Beatriz were there to make sure everything went perfectly! We even got to hang out with Beatriz before the guests arrived downstairs for the reception, and she was so nice and thoughtful. We tried all the appetizers and they were ALL AMAZING!! YUM. Then had our delicious meal (beef tenderloin with shrimp accompanied by their famous risotto) The caprese salad course and the bread and whipped butter were phenomenal. Now, let’s talk about the late night desserts (crème bruele/maple bacon donuts, chocolate chip cookies and snickerdoodle cookie with milk shooters) Fantastic! Everyone thought they were delicious!!

Every single guest was RAVING about the food, and we couldn’t have been more happy. So many guests said the food was the best part of the wedding – and it’s true! The Joy Wallace team was so kind and super organized. Everything was planned down to the minute and executed perfectly.

We will DEFINITELY recommend Joy Wallace to everyone looking for a caterer!

Love, Hanna and Ryan.

Our reception was held at Comber Hall and AJW provided the catering. From day one, Beatriz (our coordinator) was so sweet, personable, helpful and patient! Every question, email, and concern we had, she answered immediately and gave very helpful suggestions/advice. They worked very well with our budget and provided top of the line service. The food was delicious, service was amazing. All of our guests are still raving on how attentive the staff was and how beautiful the night was. They were also very attentive to my husband and I, we were able to sneak off to the reception room while cocktail hour was happening, and AJW was there with champagne and Hors d'oeuvres for us :)
I am so glad Comber Hall has AJW as their exclusive caterers!! I could not have asked for a more perfect night. Thanks to AJW team and Beatriz!

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!

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.
