I can't say enough wonderful things about my experience with John and Mark at Designed Events ... everything was SPECTACULAR! From the kindness and professionalism to the attention to detail, they were incredible. The food, however, stole the show! With the most unique and beautiful presentation, each and every dish at my daughter's wedding reception was perfect and delicious. Due to limited space, they prepared two long buffet tables out of sight, then wheeled them onto the dance floor in a moment's notice. They had it ready to go in less than two minutes (!) and managed to serve 170 guests in 20 minutes ... with food that inspired hundreds of compliments from the guests. I cou

I can't say enough good things about these guys. They bent over backwards to accommodate last minute issues and the food was amazing. I had tried them at another reception I went to and gave them a shot and the dreaded first meeting was relaxed, informative and we knew by the time we left that they would help make my daughter's day spectacular. And...they did NOT disappoint! They pay such attention to detail. My only regrets are that we did not know about them 3 years ago when our other daughter got married.

They also handled the bar service for our venue and the bartenders were awesome! We provided the liquor, and they provided everything else including pleasant service to all of our guests. I have a friend that has asked for recommendations and I proudly gave Designed Events information.

Our School has been working with Designed Events for the last several years, using their catering services for function sizes ranging from small groups to large gala dinners for 300. Mark and John provide a wonderful experience for the customer. They excel at creating interesting and creative dishes while using their vast knowledge to ensure that the menu will be well-executed and well-received. They and their staff are consistently professional and dependable. Without fail they provide exceptional food and services with beautiful display and presentation. We receive several post-event phone calls asking for their contact information every time we use Designed Events. I recommend them highly.

These caterers are simply the best. Mark sold us when he listened to our broad thoughts and then ran with planning a menu. He could describe exactly how everything was prepared and even where the ingredients were sourced. I could not imagine better food or service from anyone. All the wait staff were professional and fun. Everyone is still talking about the best wedding food ever. Now if I could just figure out where I could use them again, I would do it in a heartbeat. Thank you Mark, John and complete staff for making the best night of our lives so deliciously memorable. Don't you need a taste tester on staff??
