Ed was very professional and kind when you were able to get through to him. I found myself playing telephone tag quite a bit with him. We rented our reception tent, tables and chairs from him as well. We had our ceremony and reception at our home. Ed came out to our home to examine the yard, and we discussed where we would like the tent to be placed. It was drawn out and agreed how it would be placed. We were told it would show up the Thursday before the wedding, so we both took off work to be there when they came to set up. However, to our surprise, we came home from work on Wednesday with a huge tent in our back yard....facing the wrong way. I called, texted and emailed Ed right away with no response until the next afternoon saying that they were able to get it over a day early and would not charge me. I explained what the problem was, but at this point it was too late, so my groom and I just made adjustments. The staff on the actual wedding day were phenomenal!! Nikki supervised our wedding and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it throughout the reception without coming up to us too much and taking us out of the moment. I could not have asked for the day to have gone any better. However, we ran into some more trouble with the tent rental when they came to remove it. They had apparently expected us to have the tent completely torn down for them to pick up. I'm not quite sure how we would have been expected to remove a 30' x 60' tent. Also, my husband built a dance floor under the tent and, rather than working around it or asking us to remove it, the man proceeded to bash the railing with a hammer until it fell off and out of his way. Completely unnecessary and unprofessional. Overall, the staff is great at handling the actual day, but service before and after left a lot to be desired.

Provided a lot of food for the amount charged. And brought take out containers for my guests so they didn't feel forced to eat everything. Which was a big plus for me. And even gave us the left over food to take home. They were all very flexible and nice.

We had won a gift certificate from Festive Board towards our reception at a wedding show over a year prior to our wedding, however, this was not the deciding factor. Festive Board and its staff made us feel at ease from the very first visit, to the day of our wedding. We hadn't even looked at any other caterers when we decided to choose Festive Board. They gave us lunch as well as sent us each home with several different things to try from their deli and a complete dinner.
When things got closer, they contacted us multiple times, letting us know they hadn't forgotten us and to make sure we were comfortable about the service they were going to provide. Emily gracefully dealt with all my texts and emails about set up for our reception, and made sure to answer all my questions.
The day of was wonderful as well! The food was great (I heard several compliments on it from our guests) and the staff went above and beyond for the service. I never noticed the set up, or tear down team - they did a very good job of not getting in the way or drawing attention to themselves (not that they needed to hide, but I simply mean it did not take away from the reception whatsoever).
All in all, we are very happy with the service that Festive Board provided. We dealt with multiple people, so we can't even say who the best one to attend your event is - because everyone was absolutely wonderful! We would definitely recommend Festive Board to everyone :)

Festive Board was an absolute steal for my wedding. Ed was easy to work with and very flexible with what we wanted. The staff at the wedding was great and had everything set up for me exactly how I asked. Huge wait off of my shoulders after all the planning I did. Everyone loved the food and the value of what we paid for what we got was amazing. Highly recommend!!

Ed was a breeze to work with and we had a lot of great comments on the food from our wedding guests. I particularly want to note how well the staff did. They were incredibly professional, made sure my husband and I had everything we need, and made sure we stuck to the schedule as closely as possible even if it didn't have to do with catering, like reminding me the photobooth had to be torn down at a certain time. It was so nice to have such an organized team on my side. After all the planning I put in and how the day meant to me and my husband, it was wonderful to know that the Festive Board staff took the importance of the day to heart and really gave us a wonderful experience.

Festive Board did a ton on our wedding day. They also provided linens and set our favors. We got many great compliments on the food, especially the Crab MacNCheese! During the reception and cocktail hour they took good care of everyone and constantly filled the bridal party's drinks. Ed, the owner, had thought of everything and it shows his experience.

We had a complete custom menu. Cakes are fantastic (especially the white cake with raspberry and buttercream). Our venue did not have full kitchen available, but Ed and his team pulled off a wonderful meal that everyone enjoyed.

I really loved our caterer. They were willing to make any type of food for our reception. They were very well organized. Were at a very reasonable price and had great food. We got so many complements. I really loved how they provided everything. We had 2 bartenders, they did the cake, the food, and all the set-up and clean up.

The Festive Board did an amazing job from set up to tear down and clean up with our wedding. My friends who helped set up the decorations couldn't stop raving about what a great help they were, just going above and beyond the expectations. We had a wonderful experience with this vendor!

We were really excited after we met with Ed, signed our contract, and paid our deposit. When we left we were convinced that we had made the right choice and everything would be great.

We were wrong.

One of the few things that we made sure Ed knew we were adamant was that a food I have an anaphylactic allergy to was not to appear anywhere in the menu. He assured us that they had done dairy free weddings, gluten free weddings, etc and that this would be no problem whatsoever.

We met up with him at the venue 6 weeks beforehand, and dropped our final guest number 35%, because these things happen when you're planning a wedding.

The day of the wedding, we sat down to eat and what is staring me in the face but the allergen that we'd talked about. When my husband said something to the supervisor, she said she'd check on it, ran off, and I never saw her again the rest of the night. I got to eat two bites of my dinner because at that point I didn't trust any of the food.

The cake wasn't served until half of our guests had left, and then it only happened because my husband went and found someone and told them it needed to. After the wedding, they put the rest of the cake away but didn't tell anyone where they'd put it, so we all spent the day searching the B&B for it and trying to figure out where to dispose of all of the recycling that they'd left behind.

We never got a penny back for the 35 people that they never had to feed. We also didn't get a single positive comment about the food from any of our guests. It's not a very good feeling to have people close to you come up later and tell you how wonderful your wedding was, but how horrible the food was.

I had nightmares before the wedding about trying to cook for everyone myself, but we would have been better off. The service we received was just so horrible that there is no excuse.
