If I had to do it all over again, I would get married here again, with the exact same staff - all of it. A Spice of Life's philosophy on weddings is that you should be a guest at your own wedding (rather than doing a lot of the work like other vedors require). Really, we all got to show up, and enjoy the ride. A Spice of Life Event Center will go the extra mile for you and then some.

Our site coordinator, Joan, was incredible! She made our day so special and wonderful, and I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator. On our way to check out the site (before we even booked it), our car broke down. Joan was willing to send a vehicle for us to bail us out, AND she called a local dealership where we could tow our car. She also asked that I call her later to let her know that we were safe - she was genuinely concernec about us before she even met us! We later found out that Joan's anniversary was the same day we got married - she was willing to help make someone else's day special on her own special day!

Also, the site itself is GORGEOUS! Beautiful scenery - amazing!

The food from A Spice of Life was AMAZING. They were so flexible with us changing our reception venue only a month away from the wedding and the contact that we dealt with was so helpful and cooperative. They gave us complimentary cheese and cracker platters for the bridal party so we had something to munch on while getting ready. They also put together a picnic basket with leftover snacks for my hubby and me when we left the reception. The only thing that made me give a 4.5 was that they didn't realize that our cake topper was not supposed to be cut up for the guests to eat (we had cupcakes with a topper) so we only ended up getting 2 pieces of our cake to save for our first anniversary. Other than that the service was great.

The biggest thing I can say is that my guests loved the food. We got compliments all night on how tasty everything was. I loved that we got 3 pieces of each appetizer per person. I felt that this was a great value as every other caterer quoted us 1 piece of each appetizer per person and their prices were higher! I loved that they served us at our table so we could eat while the guests were going through the buffet line and giving us more time to visit with everyone. I also really enjoyed the picnic basket they sent home with us at the end of the night and that cheese trays for getting ready are included. I thought all of the staff was wonderful! My only complaint is that our event coordinator changed 3 times in 6 months. I understand why on each occasion promotions etc. I just would have liked to work withe the same person the whole way through. That being said I loved each of my coordinators Carrie Jay, Amanda, and Nancy were wonderful and I would not hesitate to work with any of them again.

We had approximately 100 guests. The backdrop of the Flatirons for the ceremony was gorgeous. The food for the reception was wonderful, which my guests keep reminding me of days after! I worked with Paige to plan the event, and she was very attentive and accommodating and patient. Leanne helped us the day of with the reception, and did a great job managing the logistics and service (the rest of the staff provided great service, too.) We had everything we needed for our special day, and as a bonus the cost of the entire package was reasonable. Highly recommend this venue and catering service!
