Duvall Events did an amazing job on my daughter's wedding in July. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful and they worked within my budget to make a wonderful menu. The catering captain, Whitney, made sure everything went smoothly and the stations were constantly replenished. Ashlyn and the décor team did an awesome job helping to make this the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen. Everything from the bridesmaid bouquets, draping, café lights, and dozens of other fine details made the venue even more perfect . They even went above and beyond and helped with a couple of things that were not expected. Ashlyn saw our vision with a magical, vintage, romantic wedding and ran with it. She was very professional, made a perfect time line and saw everything to fruition. I can't say enough good things about this company and I would definitely recommend them.

Not being local to Charleston I relied on my research abilities to select the vendors for my wedding. Duvall Events was highly recommended and I now know why. I worked with Alicia for catering and Ashlyn for decor - both highly professional, responsive, and talented ladies! They worked with me through all the little changes and my million questions along the way. In the end, everything was all that I had hoped for. The food was amazing (guests raved!), the flow was seamless and the decor was beautiful. Our catering supervisor, Rachel, and her entire on-site team were courteous and responsive. Hats off to Duvall Events for a job VERY well done!

Duvall Events is incredible! They really helped make our day so perfect for my husband and I, and all our guests! Alicia was beyond helpful and so attentive from the beginning, and she really nailed everything I wanted. My husband is French, so they went above and beyond to create special signing that was in both languages, and helped me create the perfect menu all our guests would love! Everything was beyond beautiful, and the cakes, we had so many compliments on how yummy and gorgeous everything was! I can't recommend them enough, they are awesome and hands down the best!

Duvall was so responsive and accommodating throughout my entire wedding/planning process. Unlike other vendors, they asked a lot of questions to make sure they knew exactly what I wanted and expected for my wedding. The food and service was wonderful and Isabelle dealt with my many questions and concerns quickly and professionally. The floral and decor were beautifully done and absolutely perfect - They were exactly what I envisioned. I sent Hannah a few pictures and she made everything come to life! Both Isabelle and Hannah were absolutely wonderful to work with and made my day extra special. Thank you so much for everything!

Duvall was in charge of our wedding food/bar and rentals. They decorated both the ceremony and reception areas as well as provided floral. They did an excellent job! Alicia and Shannon are great. When we first met for the tasting, we automatically knew that we would be booking with them. Great people! My husband and I would recommend Duvall to anyone planning a wedding.

The food for my daughter's wedding was fantastic. My experience with Duvall Events, particularly Shannan Caldwell, was seamless and extremely professional. I also took advantage of the Coordinator Services and I don't know how I would have done it otherwise. Shannan was delightful to work with and she kept an anxious mother-of-the-bride calm throughout the process. I am so grateful to this company for providing us with such excellent service.

The setup of the entire event was perfect and everything looked amazing. Alicia was able to help bring my vision to life with her expertise and creativity. Any request I had, she was able to provide me with some solutions and was always upfront and honest about extra costs and possible limitations. She was full of suggestions and her guidance throughout the planning was priceless.

Duvall Catering did an absolutely exceptional job with our event. From the first contact that I made with their team, they were nothing short of excellent. In the beginning, the reason that we selected Duvall was their responsiveness upon initial contact: they were back in touch with me on the day of inquiry, set appropriate expectations for timeframes and length of calls, and listened intently to truly understand us and our needs & desires for the wedding. They went above and beyond to win our business during the initial inquiry phase, and that set them aside from many other vendors in the area.
From there, the process only got better. I learned that Duvall could not only handle our Catering needs, but could work with us to handle all of our Decor as well. As our event was at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall, and we live in Raleigh, we were thrilled to be able to streamline everything for the event through one company. Isabelle Donovan, our Catering Manager, and Shannon Hardy, our Event Design and Décor coordinator, were incredible. As we were planning a wedding in a relatively short amount of time, I was concerned about responsiveness and timeliness. These two individuals squelched that concern immediately. I am not exactly sure when they takes days off, but for 2 months I felt as though I was the most important event on which they were working. They were in touch with me every day, answering my questions, working with me on pricing, guiding me through the process, and making me feel warm, comfortable, happy and excited. All of our guests raved about the menu & service. The Chefs executed the meal perfectly: everything was beautifully prepared and presented. The flow and timing of the evening was exceptional as well, and the staff of Duvall was wonderful & friendly. The room looked divine. I hope to work with Duvall again in the future and HIGHLY recommend them to all brides in search of the perfect wedding. Ours truly was: Thank you!

The ladies at Duvall were a Godsend for me in the planning and execution of my wedding. They were such a pleasure to work with and really made my life much easier than I imagine it otherwise would have been. They handled the rentals, catering, decor and cake. Shannan Caldwell also helped me with the final planning stages and was my rehearsal/day-of coordinator. Everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Duvall was wonderful...The food was fantastic and Duvall was by far the best decision we made for our wedding! A server even came down with a specialty drink and the passed cocktail food when we got to the reception! We did stations and did shrimp and grits, slider, carving, pasta station, dessert, and coffee bar. All of it was AMAZING!!! Shannan at Duvall was a BLESSING! You will not regret using them!!!

PS we even had a very PICKY eater (as in-usually complains) come over and tell us it was nice to "have good food and get full at a wedding!" Best decision we made!!!!

Duval Catering and Event Design was WONDERFUL. Alicia Brewer is a true professional. From the first phone call, to the day of my daughters wedding, the service was outstanding. The food was excellent and service was great. Megan and the rest of the staff the day of the wedding was fantastic. I could not have been happier with Duvall Catering and Event Design. We decided to go with Duvall once I had talked with Alicia over the phone. We live in West Virginia and made all the arrangements over the phone and email.
I appreciated their promptness and professionalism. Once we arrived in Charleston for the wedding, we met with Alicia to finalize everything. She was a real jewel to work with. Do not hesitate to work with Duvall.

I highly recommend Duvall caterers. The service, the fabulous menu, the table decorations, the flowers for the church and bride and attendants, were extraordinary. The guests raved about the food; everyone commented about the gourmet presentation and taste. The 2 bars ensured that no one had to wait to get a cocktail.

I highly recommend Duvall caterers. The service, the fabulous menu, the table decorations, the flowers for the church and bride and attendants, were extraordinary. The guests raved about the food; everyone commented about the gourmet presentation and taste. The 2 bars ensured that no one had to wait to get a cocktail. The event was perfect; thank you Duvall caterers. Read less

Duvall was easy to do business with. We did everything through phone calls and email with me being an out of town bride. Isabelle made sure everything was taken care of. I took a chance with them as I had never tasted their food until the day of the wedding, but I had no regrets. The bbq and low country boil was excellent. The service received from the Duvall staff was phenomenal as well. I couldn't have been happier with them as a vendor.

Duvall was fantastic with everything! They did my food, cake, and decorations. Isabelle and Katie were always very responsive and helpful. We also got to meet our pastry chef Jamie and she was great as well. Everyone who had a hand in decorating and preparing food our wedding was amazing. It was difficult working with them from TN while they are in SC but they got everything perfect and exactly how I wanted. All of our guests thought the food was amazing and that our decorations were amazing as well. I would recommend them to anyone!

We hired Duvall to cater our rehearsal dinner at bohicket marina, in johns island, and they could not of done a better job. Amy worked hand and hand with me to create a personalized menu, and we chose half the menu to be an oyster roast. I have never received more compliments on oysters in my life and my fiance still says that was his favorite memory of the wedding. I on the other hand, LOVED the collard greens, pulled pork, and mac&cheese, i wish they had their own restuarant it was that good! The staff was very professional and set things up on time and out on time too :) Will highly reccomend! - The Ingles !

I could not be happier with the service I received from Duvall. They provided our catering, flatware and dishes, as well as decor services. The food was unbelievable. The decor was jaw-dropping. The flatware and dishes took the sophistication of the event up a notch from the disposables that were standard for our venue. The staff was professional and courteous from when we started planning through the night of our wedding. Every single one of my guests was thoroughly impressed not only with the food, presentation, and decor, but also with the wait staff, who executed seamless customer service the entire evening. The coordinators answer email and voicemail promptly and were flexible with all of the little changes that we made as we got closer to the big day. Given the quality of service I received, every single penny was well worth it. The staff at Duvall helped to make my wedding fun and stress free. I could kick back and enjoy it all, knowing that the Duvall staff had everything under control. It was truly amazing. To use any other caterer in the Charleston area seems utterly ridiculous by comparison. There isn't a single area in which they could have improved and I am deeply grateful for the memorable night they helped to create - it was the wedding of my dreams.

As an out-of-town bride, I was drawn to Duvall Catering because of their ability to provide event design, decor, as well as food and bar service. Not having to deal with, and coordinate communication between multiple vendors was a huge relief. Alicia and Shannon were a pleasure to work with and the final result was magical. They built on my ideas and made our big day absolutely incredible. One of our biggest priorities was having great food; Duvall's food is unbelievable (our guests were raving about it the whole weekend). My husband and I were also extremely grateful for Duvall's adaptability- we provided transportation for our guests to and from the venue, but the bus broke down before it reached the hotel to pick up the guests; as such, our wedding was delayed for over an hour. The service staff adjusted to the delay seamlessly and graciously stayed later to allow us to make up for the lost time. I cannot say enough about the staff; every single staff member provided impeccable, friendly service from start to finish. Thanks to Duvall, our wedding was more than we could have ever hoped for.

I received so many compliments about the food that night!

Duvall's Catering and Event services were phenomenal. They were willing to work within our budget, provide wonderful wedding coordination, and the food was absolutely fantastic. They handled all floral arrangements, including my bouquet, and they were a stunning vision of the ideas we had discussed in our pre-wedding emails and meetings. The food selection was extraordinary and really gave us the low-country feel with a little Middle Eastern flavor without breaking the bank! The decor was perfectly matched to my husband and mine's personalities. The whole event was perfect and couldn't have been done without the expertise at Duvall's.

DELICIOUS!
The food was a huge highlight at our wedding. Having planned this wedding from across the country, I was not able to sample any of it - I just made selections and kept my fingers crossed. OH MY GOODNESS was is amazing. I am still to this day getting compliments on the food at our wedding. We had passed hors d'oevres that included angus beef sliders with cheddar and bacon, fried green tomato with goat cheese, and crab cakes. I have never had better appetizers. As the bride, you often don't get to eat very much but I sure made an attempt after tasting one of those fried green tomatoes! Dinner was off the charts. We had a sit down dinner and the quality and preparation of the entrees were outstanding. It was my favorite meal in Charleston, and I had eaten at a number of renowned establishments the week prior to and after the weddding. We had Pepper Encrusted Atlantic Salmon, Grilled Filet Mignon, Grilled Chicken with Herbs de Provence.....YUM YUM YUM. Classy, elegant, accessible, rustic, gourmet, DELICIOUS.

She worked the entire time whatever we needed it was done. We loved her professionalism and quality. When there was a free moment she would be cleaning something or serving someone. My husband and I said we could have never done it without her. With 3 other children left Duvall and Shannan will have 3 more to do!!! Thank you Duvall for the best experience ever.

We looked at a ton of venues and caterers/event planners. We decided to go with Duvall based on their food (delicious) and the people that work there. We worked with Shannon and Alicia and they were amazing! They made the whole planning process as easy as possible.

Food
We had a cocktail hour and a buffet. People went crazy for our food. We had a meat carving station, a shrimp and grits station, a Mediterranean station, and a "Lowcountry" station. I had so many guests talking about how delicious it was. We had the tasting and loved the food but wanted a few modifications, which they easily accommodated. They were also quite flexible on bar choices and the minor changes made up until 2 weeks before. Alicia really worked with us on this and she was absolutely on top of everything, any changes requested were made within 12-24 hours. I can not stress enough how delicious everything was. My mom and I were arguing about sit down vs buffet and they helped us come up with a seated salad and then the buffet. The wait staff was fantastic. There was one waiter who on top of his duties, made sure that my Husband and me were 100% taken care of during the night. In addition, they sent us home with a great basket of leftovers.

Decor-
Shannon was our Designer and she had her work cut out for her. I was very unclear of what I liked (I had colors and simple). Shannon met with us as much as possible as well as over email passed on designs to really nail something down. She worked within the budget and whenever I said "no" or "less" or "more" she was absolutely on board and never made me feel like I was being a pain, even though I am sure I was!

Wedding Planning
Shannon at Duvall took care of this as well. This was key for me since we don't live in town. She did all the legwork and the entire wedding was flawless.

We used Duvall for both the catering and floral/decor at our wedding, and I am extremely happy with the service they provided! From start to finish, they were very professional, and they were also great at following-up and communicating. Even though I know they were busy with many other weddings and events besides mine, their focus and attention to detail to mine made me feel like I was their only client. The flowers and decor came-out exactly how I had been envisioning - better, even! - and I am still hearing rave reviews of the food more than a month later! They even packed some of the leftovers in a picnic basket and had it waiting for us in our getaway car, so that we could have a late-night snack when we arrived at our hotel :) I would highly recommend using Duvall to anyone planning any type of event, and will be sure to use them again in the future if the occasion arises!

Having to plan a wedding in less than three months is a daunting task in itself. Having to plan it from out of town was overwhelming. Once I contacted Duvall, Alicia and the staff at Duvall made it worry-free. We were so impressed with Alicia's responsiveness and professionalism that it seemed like an obvious choice to have Rachel at Duvall handle the flowers as well. We had some last minute changes that were stressful to us, but both Alicia and Rachel handled everything with expertise and everything went off without a problem.

Having to plan a wedding in less than three months is a daunting task in itself. Having to plan it from out of town was overwhelming. Once I contacted Duvall, Alicia and the staff at Duvall made it worry-free. We were so impressed with Alicia's responsiveness and professionalism that it seemed like an obvious choice to have Rachel at Duvall handle the flowers as well. We had some last minute changes that were stressful to us, but both Alicia and Rachel handled everything with expertise and everything went off without a problem. The catering staff and food were exceptional! It was truly a pleasure working with everyone at Duvall! Read less

I'm so glad that we went with Duvall for our catering. We received tons of compliments...especially on the she crab soup, shrimp and grits and crab cakes. Our guests really enjoyed everything.

Alicia Brewer and the Duvall staff was amazing to work with and the food was fantastic!! The guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about everything, but the shrimp and grits, she crab soup, horseradish mashed potatoes, and cookies are the items that people are still talking about!! I only wish I got to eat more because it was simply delicious and I would recommend them to anyone!

My daughter was recently married at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC. She is currently living in DC and I am in Colorado. When she and her finance decided to get married in Charleston (where my husband and I were married 28 years ago) I was thrilled, but also nervous, as long-distance wedding planning can be difficult. After much research, we choose Duvall's to be our caterer. My point of contact was a young gal named Alicia Brewer. I called her a lot! She was always so kind, knowledgeable, and patient with me. With her help, we chose our menu. The food, staff, and level of service that we received exceeded my every expectation. We have gotten so much positive feedback on how delicious the food was and also on the Duvall's staff being so indicative of good ole Southern hospitality. I am so pleased that we chose such a wonderful caterer and would recommend them, to anyone planning a wedding in Charleston,without any reservations. The quality of service, food, and integrity of this company are impeccable. Alicia, I can't thank you enough for helping to make our daughter's wedding such a huge success. You were an absolute delight to work with and I am so grateful for all of your guidance & help. Sincerely, Karen

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Duvall, and Jean Fisk in particular. My daughter's wedding at Boone Hall Plantation was more than any of us dreamed it could be. Planning a wedding from 1,000 miles away could have been difficult, but from my initial conversation with Jean, I knew that our daughter's wedding would be handled by Duvall. Friendly yet professional for 1 1/2 years of planning, and having Jean's expertise of throughout and using many of her recommendations, the BIG DAY came off beautifully. The quality of the food, professional and engaging staff, timeliness of set up, and willingness for last minute changes all played into the most beautiful event. Jean's oversight to all the details of the day assured me that I would be able to enjoy my daughter's wedding. My husband and I are still getting compliments from our guests, and we have Duvall to thank for making it a very special day for Valerie and Thomas.

Our wedding planner, Megan was our saving grace. She kept the weeks leading up to our big day as painless as she possibly could. She was easy to talk to, very professional and a joy to work with. I would recommend her and Duvall as a whole any day of the week!!

Duvall Event Planning was very helpful with planning our daughter's wedding. Caroline and Charlie took great care of us. They are friendly and fun to work with. The food was fantastic! We got great feedback from our guests. The venue looked amazing - just as we had planned.
We were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing Duvall had everything under control for us.
We highly recommend Duvall Event Planning. We will use them again for future events. Thank you Charlie Moore and Caroline Heuring. And a special thanks to Alex, who took special care of us at the reception :)

I know it seems impossible that I would rate each of the above services extremely high, but in all honestly, if I could rate them higher, I would. We were referred to Duvall Catering by friends, so we decided to begin our wedding process with them. After our first two hour meeting with Rachel and Emma, we knew they were a perfect fit for our daughter's wedding and we stopped our search for a wedding planner and caterer. Their personalities were VERY PROFESSIONAL AND CREATIVE, but more importantly they were fun and flexible. They listened intently to my daughter's vision of her wedding day and made it ALL possible, in a VERY COST EFFICIENT and enjoyable way. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING, and our friends continue to tell us how fabulous our daughter's wedding was - one of the very best they have ever been to. We owe it all to Duvall's.

We used Duvall for floral and decor and for our day-of coordinator, specifically Megan Click, and we could not have planned our wedding at the SC Aquarium without her! She was involved every single step of the way, always going above and beyond what was required. She met with us several times, emailed with me 10 times a day and helped me as the time grew closer to remember the little last-minute details that I definitely would have forgotten. She picked our flowers, which were beautiful. All I did was send her several photos of bouquets I loved and she picked mine and it was perfect! She was also REALLY accommodating with our budget, always helping us figure out new ways to cut costs without sacrificing quality. THe day of went so smoothly and she found me at various points throughout the night to let me know what was next and make sure I didn't want to change anything. She kept track of all our vendors, emailing them FOR me (also a huge help) and just made sure that everyone was on the same page! (which can be very difficult with 5 or more vendors!) I can't say enough great things about our experience with her, and if you are looking for someone to be with you every step of the way (the closest you can come to a wedding planner!), then I highly recommend Megan! She's also lovely and personable and upbeat. Everything looked lovely as far as decor and she was a huge part of that!

Duvall Catering and Event Design goes well above and beyond.
I recently used Duvall for my June 19 wedding at Middleton Place. Duvall handled my catering, my decor, and after having met with them for those matters, I also hired Megan Click, one of their staff, as my Day Of Coordinator.
The catering was phenomenal. I realized at the tasting the food far exceeded anything I had ever eaten. Not only that though, at the wedding I found, the presentation was impressive as well. It looked great, and one chef attended station even turned out to be entertaining for guests to watch! Guest that attended the wedding were talking about how great it was all night long and have told me redundantly since how amazing the food was. Working through picking out the menu was so great with them as well. Even though after tasting all my original choices, I had no desire to change anything- I really appreciated that they made an effort to let me know that if anything was not exactly what we wanted, they would change it, whether it was taking something off the menu, changing it or even switching a sauce. Catering was a wonderful experience from start to finish.
The decor was not only the most fun part to plan, but also (Thanks to Megan) the least stressful part of the whole planning process. I met with Megan and let her know what I had in mind as far as what I saw visually, as well as the atmosphere I was trying to create for my guests. Megan was able to understand my cloudy images and decipher what was needed to make that happen. She then went over all those things to make sure that not only were we on the same page, but when actually created it would be exactly what I wanted. Needless to say, come the wedding day, I was breathless. It looked like a dream! Everything came together perfectly- What I saw couldn't even hold a candle to all my hopes for how it would turn out- It really was my fairy tale.
So after having such a wonderful experience planning the decor with Megan , I hired her as my day of planner as well. She is truly wonderful. She went far above and beyond, what was required. I can't imagine any of this without her. She kept me updated on everything I needed to know along the way and on the day helped keep me from knowing any of the things I didn't need to know to avoid being stressed. There were so many things that, as a planner, she brought to the table that I hadn't thought of- things that were crucial but had not crossed my mind. She also brought many ideas that helped my day to be the most enjoyable. Megan came to the rehearsal and helped direct everybody to what they needed to do and on the day of she made sure everything was in order and made sure that everything was on time and without any hiccups. She truly was a blessing. I mean it when I say I could not have done it without her.

As the mother of the bride living in Washington, DC, with the bride living in California, I was quite nervous about helping plan a wedding in Charleston, SC. The people at Duvall made is all quite easy. From the beginning, they provided a lot of helpful information and guided us through the process. They were able to handle not only all the catering, but also all the decor and rentals. My daughter had a clear and somewhat unusual vision of what she wanted, and they worked closely with both of us to create an event that exceeded her expectations and came in on budget. When it came to services they do not handle themselves, they were happy to provide several recommendations, all of which turned out to be reasonably priced and very professional vendors. I especially want to commend Katie, who handled decor and lighting and served as event coordinator; Emma, who handled catering; and the catering manager at our event, Rachel. All of them and many more contributed to a day that my daughter said was "the best day ever."

Thank you for everything Duvall Events did. The set-up at the reception was just as we imagined (and diagrammed :) ). We never even noticed when the buffet tables were broken down and taken away so nice job!

We've gotten rave reviews from a number of our guests about the food and decor. They especially loved the beef tenderloin - us too. Thank you so much for the take-away basket as well. Food is one of the things people tend to remember most about these kinds of events, and yours was delicious.

You helped to make our day really special with all of your coordination of logistics, set-up, decorating, and food and beverage service. It was great thanks to Duvall!

I loved having Duvall as my catering!! The food was beeeyyooonnddd delish! They were soooo easy to work with and flexible!! I have had soo many compliments on my food and the service! The only thing I was a little bummed about was that they were supposed to bring out some platters of Hors durves while the bridal party was taken photos and they didnt. So I didnt get to have any of them, which ended up being ok because dinner was served directly after we came in! Alisha Brewer was a dream to work with and was so accommodating as well! Thank you Duvall for making my wedding even more amazing!! I also used Duvall for floral and decor and they sure made everything amazing! I will post that under the decore and floral part of my vendors though! ;)

Duvall catered both our Rehearsal Cruise aboard the Carolina Girl on Friday and the Wedding on Saturday. Shannan Caldwell, our event coordinator, made everything easy and was a joy to work with. Professional, responsive and flexible re last minute changes. Ashlyn did a lovely job with the floral arrangements/decor for both events. Rachel, the catering supervisor, and all Duvall staff were excellent and extremely gracious.

The food was amazing both evenings. Our guests are still talking about the low country pulled pork and shrimp and grits!

Duvall was highly recommended to me by a local friend (we are out of State) as "the Best". They are indeed. I would have given a 5 of 5 but couldn't figure out how to adjust two rating categories.

We can't thank you enough for all your help with our wedding! I can't believe how perfect everything turned out! I couldn't tell you one thing that went wrong or wasn't how I envisioned it. I want to especially thank Shannan for being so responsive and helpful throughout all those months of planning (even through her own wedding!).

I received so many compliments on the food at the wedding. A few even said it was the best wedding food they ever had! I could not have been happier hearing that. My one regret was not getting to taste everything (I think I had most things which I guess is still winning since everyone told me I wouldn't eat at my wedding- I ate!).

Our daughter was married this week at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston SC. Duvall was one of the recommended vendors with high ratings on food and value. This was a great choice! Alicia Brewer and Katie Collins were excellent to work with. Alicia handled the catering and Katie handled the coordinator responsibilities. Alicia and Katie were very timely in responding to our emails and phone messages. They were in constant contact with our daughter and did a great job listening to the bride and groom to their likes and dislikes and then created a wonderful menu. Unfortunately, wedding day brought a full day of rain and thunderstorms but Duvall created a backup venue floor plan and everything went so well. Their staff was professional and very attentive. Glenda immediately found me to introduce herself as the point of contact that evening with any food or catering needs. Their bartender was great, lots of smiles and friendly. The star of Duvall is their food. If you enjoy collards - they are the best! It was well presented and delicious. Everyone enjoyed their dinner - even the bride and groom took time to sit down to eat their dinner!

With Duvall, you get what you pay for. They are the best and they are worth it. Emma from Duvall went out of her way to help us plan the perfect wedding within our budget from start to finish. She was amazing to work with. At Duvall, they don't just provide a service; they care. Thy really want everything to taste and look perfect for your wedding day. The food was better than many of the top restaurants in Charleston, and they by far made the best shrimp & grits and lemon tarts I've ever had. They added wonderful touches throughout, such as boiled peanuts and shooters of cole slaw. Everything was top notch.

Duvall was very helpful to my mom and I as we planned for my wedding months in advance. Caroline and I met on multiple occasions, and she was flexible to meet with me whenever I had a concern or idea. The food was excellent! The only negative feedback I got from several guests was that the food was slightly cold. We did have a very large wedding though. The reception turned out beautifully and Caroline was very professional in handling all of vendors. We didn't have to worry whether or not everything was taken care of- we knew she was on top of it all. I would highly recommend using Duvall for your catering/event planning. Very pleased!

Duvall did a fabulous job catering our wedding. The food and drinks were amazing and looked beautiful. We're still receiving complements on them four months later. Alicia at Duvall was great to work with. She was very positive and helpful and always responded quickly to emails. The groom and I enjoyed going to our tastings. It was a fun process and the chefs listened to make sure they got everything right. We did have one issue: they gave away our extra beer/wine to guests by mistake after the wedding. Duvall was very apologetic about this, so I would just make sure you have a plan for that stuff before the wedding. With that being said, it was still a great experience and we'd chose them again if we could do it all over!

Duvall Events responded with the following comments:

Cate,
Thank you for the wonderful review! We have readdressed the issue with leftover beer and wine. I hope the guests who told us they were supposed to take it had a great afterparty. For us, it was a lesson, and helped us establish a new procedure for handling client alcohol, to include sign-in and sign out. I regret not earning the perfect 5's, and we would be happy to discuss some compensation for your loss.

Also, we worked with Alicia throughout the whole process and she was amazing!

Megan definitely was helpful for me in decorations and being honest about where I could cut for my budget as well as sticking up for me when I got some push back from my vendors and not wanting to comply with my requests.

Emma and her team were equally as wonderful! All of my guests commented on how wonderful our food was and it being the best wedding food they had ever had. Emma was also great at suggesting a different wedding cake for me. They created a brownie cake for me because I love brownies but not cake. I would highly recommend them!

I was a little disappointed in their quality of service. The wedding party was the first group through the line and I noticed that the chicken appeared to come straight from the fridge. Other than the chicken being cold, the other food we had selected was very good. My guests complained that they would also go around the room and take half finished drinks if they went to dance or get some food, which then required the guests to order a new one while drinks were paid per consumption.

The food and bar services were wonderful, which is really the most important thing I can say about Duvall. My experience through the planning process, was like a 4.8 out of 5. The person I was communicating with was super kind and helpful, but I do feel like a had a few moments where not all of the information I needed to make plans was provided to me. I definitely recommend them, but I would just say be sure to schedule any tastings early if that is something you are expecting. Overall, I was not disappointed though. I loved our food and so did everyone else.

Even though I contacted her last minute before my wedding, she and her team got everything organized without any trouble. She was willing to go the extra mile to make things right, and we were happy that we used their services.

My only complaint: In our planning meeting, I requested that they employee enough staff so that everyone was served their meal at once. In reality, my table had been served and finished eating before all of our guests had received their meals.

The food of Duvall catering goes above the quality of normal catered food, its more like the best of a restaurant style of food. They catered my wedding in Charleston SC and I must say that I think I got more rave reviews about the food than I did about my wedding. Their shrimp and grits with a lobster cream sauce is literally worth getting married everyday in order to have.

Let me start by saying that I had an overall good experience, and that the food was raved about by my guests....There is one negative, that is actually rather huge for me, being a food-a-holic, that is still really upseting to me...

We were referred by a family friend; at first I was real turned off r/t the excessive price of the services provided... After the tasting I knew it would be worth it. However, I was very concerned that I would not get to eat at our wedding...I was ensured by our coordinator that the "bride and groom basket" would be a wonderful dinner to have AFTER the wedding reception, as you talk to everyone and never eat as the bride! I wanted and was promised that 2 of the passed apps and 2 other of my favorites would be included in this basket....After the reception, WHICH WAS BEAUTIFUL AND FLAWLESS, I was VERY disappointed to find that the promised bride and groom basket was not given; well might as well have not been given at all anyway; included with the champagne was FRESH FRUIT, ROASTED VEG, and TACOS that were covered in cucumbers; I HATE cucumbers. I did not eat at the reception, knowing in the bakc of my head that we had this glorious basket of fried green tomatoes, crab cakes, lobster/corn bisque, and shrimp lollipops that was promised to us waiting to be devoured by the happy/buzzed and HUNGRY bride and groom... I was beyond disappointed, and STILL HUNGRY to say the least... Like I said, I am a food-a-holic and love to eat good food. If the food had sucked, I'd not be so sad. However, the food was AMAZING, and at almost $50/person for heavy hors d'vours, upset doesn't even begin to describe how I feel that we did not get to eat any of the food that was served at our wedding. In addition, my father caught the caterers throwing away left-overs...They said they didn't want us to have to hassle with clean up, but again $50/person... SAVE THE FOOD!!!

This is my only negative. Everything else was well planned. I was very low-maintenence to start, but I didn't have to do very much in the way of reception set up. They even put my centerpieces on the tables for me. I would recommend using them, but either EAT at your reception, or get it in writing what you expect in your complimentary bride and groom basket, that by the way, I was told was provided for the sole reason of bride/grooms being too busy to eat at the reception...

When I contacted my coordinator to let her know what a big disappointment this was, I must say that I was expecting an offer of an appropriate basket. After all, I didn't eat any of our wedding food. However, this was not offered despite making her well-aware of the level of disappointment I felt when finding that crappy excuse for a bride/groom "dinner" basket. Unfortunately for Duvall, and as truly silly as I feel saying this, I don't think anything but those shrimp lollipops and crab cakes can make this right with me.

Duvall catering and events is a one stop shop in Charleston, SC. They handeled my catering and some of my decorations for my wedding. The food was fantastic and the decorations were beautiful. Duvall came highly recommended to me from everyone that I spoke to however, I would not recommend them so highly. They started out very promising. When we had our first meeting with Rachel Briggs and Jean Fisk they made a wonderful first impression. After that though things started to go down hill. Rachel was in charge of decortions and after that first meeting it was like she disappeared. I couldn't reach her on her phone, she didn't return my e-mails, or answer my questions about my decoration ideas. I am lucky that she made it to the last meeting we had and was able to get everything I wanted to use. Jean was in charge of the food and the catering and she was much better. I could always reach her when I had a question and she was at every meeting we had scheduled except for my menu tasting. We scheduled the tasting a month in advance and had to take time off of work and drive to Charleston (I live in Atlanta so this was a destination wedding) but when we showed up for our appointment Jean was not prepared. Not only was she not ready but she had forgotten about our tasting altogether. Which really upset me and was very unprofessional. They did not work well with my wedding planner either. If you plan on hiring Duvall for all of your wedding needs then they might just be the perfect fit. However, I felt like I was put on the back burner becuase I was not using all their services and I was not spending a lot of money with them. Although everything turned out beautiful it was more stress then I needed to deal with.

Duvall Events responded with the following comments:

Sandi & Allan,
Congratulations on your beautiful wedding. I feel it would be remiss of me not to respond to your recent post on your wedding on October 23,2011 at Magnolia Plantations & Gardens. I would like to start by saying thank you to you and your mother for allowing Duvall Events to be a part of your wedding planning process. I appreciate all of your feedback and will take it as an opportunity to learn from the issues you identified. The result of my mistake of not adding your tasting to the calendar was definitely upsetting to you and your family and created a shadow over what was to have been a positive experience for a happy occasion . It was upsetting for me and that is why I was very much in agreement with CEO Steve Wenger when he suggested that Duvall treat you and your family to lunch that day. We were also pleased to learn that everyone had enjoyed lunch in spite of the mix-up. It was a relief and a pleasure to execute your tasting the next day with the support of Duvall’s culinary team. I couldn’t agree with you more on how beautiful your Décor was for the ceremony and reception. I was happy I could be on site in support of the set up and installation to ensure everything went well. Our culinary staff appreciates the compliments and comments from your guests on the delicious food. I wish you and Allan a lifetime of happiness.

Respectfully,

Jean Fisk

I started off with a GREAT person--Katie, at Duvall for both décor and floral for my venue (Magnolia Plantation). She understood my budget and my vision. Then I got switched to Ashlyn who did not understand a budget or professionalism. 4 weeks before my wedding she tried to tell me that she "wanted a positive experience for herself as well as me"---a positive experience for my vendor? Please. So, I told her I wasn't switching vendors. She upcharged from everything to service fees, taxes, to assembling. She was not flexible or professional. On my wedding day I was thrilled with how beautiful their work was and how wonderful it all turned out--but I did not want to deal with Ashlyn at all. Their draping, lanterns, and chandeliers were beautiful. However, they should have not put up lanterns in the rain outside when the whole thing was moved inside only to charge me 250 dollars plus 100 in labor. They were not even seen from inside because it was pouring rain. I know that she was annoyed by me and I was very annoyed by the fact she wasn't professional. They are definitely not worth going to if you want a good value, but their floral and décor is absolutely stunning. Mixed bag! Be careful who you work with and of fees/labor costs that are astronomical and only added after you sign your contract.

Then I got switched to Ashlyn who did not understand a budget or professionalism. 4 weeks before my wedding she tried to tell me that she "wanted a positive experience for herself as well as me"---a positive experience for my vendor? Please. So, I told her I wasn't switching vendors. She upcharged from everything to service fees, taxes, to assembling. She was not flexible or professional. On my wedding day I was thrilled with how beautiful their work was and how wonderful it all turned out--but I did not want to deal with Ashlyn at all. Their draping, lanterns, and chandeliers were beautiful. However, they should have not put up lanterns in the rain outside when the whole thing was moved inside only to charge me 250 dollars plus 100 in labor. They were not even seen from inside because it was pouring rain. I know that she was annoyed by me and I was very annoyed by the fact she wasn't professional. They are definitely not worth going to if you want a good value, but their floral and décor is absolutely stunning. Mixed bag! Be careful who you work with and of fees/labor costs that are astronomical and only added after you sign your contract. Read less

The catering at my wedding was a nightmare! It began at the cocktail hour when the prepared speciality cocktails ran out in 15 minutes. The hors d'oeuvres were also being passed at this time. When the drinks ran out, the hors d'oeuvres stopped and my coordinator had to end the cocktial hour and move our guests into the reception area. The catering staff in the reception area were not ready to serve guests, as it was 30 minutes before they were scheduled to begin serving. Therefore, my guests were sitting around with no food. I must say that the food was great once served. The worst part of the night was the cake cutting. The cake cut/servers (supplied by Duvall) devoured the top layer of my cake to serve! Who doesn't know that you don't cut the top layer of the cake?! We spent a lot of money on catering and are so completely disappointed.

After reading your review I agree that there were components of your wedding reception that should have gone more smoothly. We appreciate all feedback, as it helps us to grow and learn. When handling just the catering portion of an event, we embrace and appreciate the opportunity to work with wedding planners and find that the most successful events are a result of good communication, including a detailed timeline. The timeline received was missing important details and was changing up till the last minute. Some of those missing details included cocktail hour logistics & cake cutting instructions. While many couples save the top layer, there are many that do not. Therefore our staff cut & served the top layer. I hope you will be able to enjoy the cake that we packaged and sent with your family for your anniversary. I wish you and John all the best!
