Everything was absolutely perfect! Everyone has been telling me how great the food was. Everything was setup early so we could see the venue and make any changes. The staff was outstanding and a pleasure to work with!

I went to JMU, so when I decided to get married outside of Harrisonburg I was set on hiring Special Events. I loved the food when I was in school and knew from the few events I attended that Special Events was quality. The manager I worked with was quick to respond and extremely honest. After I had signed my contract some prices changed and I was contacted to be informed my balance went down!

All my guest raved about the food. I am happy to say I was not one of those brides that didnt get to try my food... it was too delicious. As it was almost time for toast I noticed that many of the tables didnt have champagne. I thought no way all they needed was 5 min. Still it seemed I blinked and it was there before the song ended as it was supoposed to happen.

I would highly recommend special events to anyone who asked

I gave a Aramark mediocre review because they gave me mediocre service. They attempted to charge me a $45 fee to "rent" some tablecloths for the wedding cake table and gift tables, of course with a stipulation that I could not bring my own. They attempted to sell the bar for me, which I'm sure is where they get a lot of revenue from weddings. They overcharge for what they provide. The students that served us that night looked like they couldn't get out of there fast enough, they took our plates before we were done and were poorly coordinated with the schedule. The linens they provided weren't even ironed, they looked very shoddy. The food was okay... nothing special but because of cost I was forced to get the cheapest buffet they offered. I suppose that's usual for catering but I wasn't very happy with the service.

We had a long engagement so the process of planning was longer than average. Through the entire process I felt appreciated and was always communicated with. The event directors answered my endless questions and helped explain every detail. The options for catering were very flexible and affordable. They were accommodating to a smaller budget.

The food at JMU is delicious and that is no different with the events. All the guests enjoyed the food during cocktail hour and reception. The staff provided for the day worked seamlessly and were more than polite to everyone. If anything went wrong I will never know because they were such a well-oiled machine. Their clean-up process went so quickly that my coordinators could leave an hour and a half earlier than expected.

Everything about working with this company and Ellen Callahan helped make the wedding go so well. I wouldn't trust any other group with such an important event. I truly appreciate the high quality service I received.
