First of all, the space and Bread and Chocolate was a perfect fit for all of our guests, and looked absolutely beautiful on our wedding day. If you are going for rustic elegance, this is the place for you. The highlight for of Bread and Chocolate’s services, for our guests at least, was the fantastic meal they provided. The dinner served was delicious and was served by a well-managed crew of people who always seemed to be busy doing something to keep our event running smoothly. However, a recent change in the coordinating staff did cause some hiccups regarding the decorations and logistics we had requested, we can’t leave as shining a review as we had hoped we would. Bread and Chocolate could be exactly what you are looking for, but be sure to be involved in all the set up steps especially when it comes down to the final hours before your event.

Bread & Chocolate catering and events responded with the following comments:

Hi Samantha,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Bread & Chocolate. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the venue, food and service staff. Unfortunately, our event coordinator, Jessica, had a death in her family and the funeral ended up being the day of your wedding. Jessica is an extremely committed and loyal person and would never intentionally jeopardize anyone's event. This is something that is not customary and was out of our control. We have cross trained our staff and put practices in place to make sure your event is still successful. Our lead servers are trained to direct the flow of the event and ensure all the details of your event are as you planned. If there was something in particular that was concerning to you, please feel free to reach out to me directly at audra@breadandchocolate.com.

Best,

Audra Bechtel
President

My husband and I booked the Bread & Chocolate for our October wedding reception last year. The space is just absolutely gorgeous, and we loved every inch! We got some really beautiful pictures, and we didn't have to do a whole lot of decorating being that the space is so gorgeous as is. Also, the food was to die for! Not that I was able to eat a whole lot, but it was probably the best wedding dinner I have ever had. The management was switched around about half way through our planning process, but didn't cause any problems. The women I dealt with were very nice, accommodating, and professional.

The only real complaint that I have was the bar. Our bar package ended up being more expensive than our food (which is understandable) but the drinks were 99% soda. A lot of our guests (myself included) ended up with bubble belly because of all the soda they drank just trying to loosen up. The bartenders were not very nice or friendly, and seemed to cop an attitude when I requested a stronger drink. When they shut the bar down before dinner, the gates were slammed in my Mother's face (the MOTHER OF THE BRIDE!) when there was no one waiting behind her. They also cut off my husband's Father (FATHER OF THE GROOM) when he was clearly not that intoxicated. Neither of these people were driving that night. I worked in a bar for over 7 years, so I understand them having a job to do and look out for people drinking too much. I expected that for as much as we paid for the bar, we would have received better service. Their tip was also included in the price that WE (the bride and groom) paid and they weren't supposed to have a tip jar out, but they surely did. They also closed the bar without any type of notice. Which I also understand that the bar could only be open for a certain amount of time, but a little head's up would have been nice.

Overall, the experience here was really good. We were just very disappointed in the bar.

We booked Bread and Chocolate about a year ago. At that time they were under different management, Renee. Renee was great. She worked to make sure things were exactly how we wanted them and changed their typical packages when we didn't exactly fit them and wanted more and less concerning different items. Since then, we have been working with new girls. Even through we signed a contract with the terms we decided with Renee, they argue all the points on it and tell us we can't do certain things and try to charge additional fees for things that were previously stated to be included and payed for. They are not very nice about it either. You would think someone in the wedding business would want things to go smoothly and care about how the special day is especially after how much we have paid, but it seems like they only care about the profits. It has been very stressful working with the new management. The food is pretty good for wedding food and the venue is gorgeous.

I recently had my wedding and reception at Bread & Chocolate at the Old Bag Factory and couldn't have been happier. The staff was professional and went above and beyond to ensure my wedding day was seamless. The coordinator, Renee was truly wonderful, she responded to my emails and calls promptly and helped me every step of the way.

We rented the whole venue for our ceremony and reception and my family and friends were in awe of how unique the space was and how smooth the evening went. The food is delicious and the drink packages are a great value - plus drinks served out of an old safe, who doesn't love that? My husband is vegan and they helped ensure our menu would work within his diet.

My one negative comment would be that at times I felt like there were extra charges for every little thing and those definitely add up. That being said, I think that's the norm in the industry in general and overall the value for this space and level of service is very high.

In short, it is an incredible venue that made my dream wedding a reality!

Had a great experience overall. Of course everything didn't go according to plan, but they were really accommodating and made up for it with their service. It was nice to have such a great wait staff and not have to worry about clean up. More things could have been clarified and concrete before the wedding, but my wedding was on the same day as bridezilla's across the hall, so I think everyone was stressing over hers. I wouldn't change it for the world though... beautiful place, great food, wonderful staff.
