Please note the food was wonderful - it was simply everything else that wasn't. Communication is horrid. No one knows what is going on. The office staff can't answer questions and the owner is the only one who apparently knows what it going on & he doesn't return phone calls or emails in a timely manner. I got three different price quotes on extra bar time. Things that were said to be included, I found out later were not. I don't know why I bothered filling out any info sheets for the wedding day because nothing was set up by the time it was promised and most of what I asked for wasn't provided. I called specifically to ask about a locking card box for security purposes, was assured by the owner and marked yes to wanting one, and instead I got a bowl with a napkin put in it. Not only could someone have walked off with my cards but it looked so horrible and trashy next to the rest of our beautiful decorations. The poor man at the venue couldn't hardly find the table clothes, napkins or mirrors that were supposedly "easy to find" and on top of that, the venue had to call the catering owner to get the room layout sent over. My head table didn't have a table cloth or table skirt on it not did the guest book table or gift table, until 2:45 when the ceremony was at 430. This pushed my pictures back & shortened my time because we were all scrambling to get the tables in order.
Apparently the owner was at the reception but didn't bother to speak to myself or my new husband about how things were going. We also had several people upset over the food just being cleaned up with no notice. The wait staff at the venue was wonderful but I can't say the same for the owner or his office staff. They even lost my first deposit & when I emailed questioning what was going on I didn't even get a reply. I was just disappointed by the lack of professionalism throughout & then when asked why the things that went wrong occurred the blame was quickly placed anywhere but with this company.

I just had Genesis cater my wedding reception on Nov 2nd. They did an absolute wonderful job! The food was amazing, the staff was professional, every thing was set up perfect. Several family members complimented me on how great the beef and chicken was! I LOVED how they plated the salads for my guest at the end of the buffet to save time at the buffet. Chad and Megan both were extremely helpful in any questions we had and were very friendly and professional. I’m so glad we chose Genesis to cater our reception. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Wanted to thank everyone from Genesis Catering for doing an OUTSTANDING job at our daughters reception! It was held in the Moolah Shrine Oasis Room. Couldn't get over how beautiful everything was...it was even better than expected! As the parents, we were a little nervous, so we arrived early to make sure everything was ready and in place. When we walked in, I had tears in my eyes....they turned the room into an elegant ballroom with dimmed lights, beautiful chair covers w/black bows and tablecloths, candlelight and formally dressed staff running around making everything perfect! Chad was there all calm and with a big smile....he knew we would be pleased, and we were! The bartenders were all ready to pour us a cocktail and they too, were ready for the night! The BEST part of the evening is when our daughter, the bride walked in......she said, "Oh mom.....it's so BEAUTIFUL in here!" as she just gazed across the room looking at everything. That is all I wanted to know....I wanted to know that our daughter and her new husband loved what we found for them. Also, our cupcake lady was a bridesmaid, so Chad's staff put together a display of the cupcakes for us.....that was so appreciated, because we were stressing about how to get them there and set up. Anything that was coming our way, Chad made it work so that we could relax and enjoy the night! Did I mention the food? INCREDIBLE!! Everyone raved about the roast beef.....I am still craving it today, it was fabulous! The whole menu was superb and having the open bar was such a bonus! Thank you Chad and staff.....you are were so courteous to all our guests and so helpful through the evening, I can't tell you how grateful we are to all of you! You helped us give our daughter a beautiful memory that will last the rest of her life....thank you!!!!! Steve and Lisa Parker

We had our September 1st wedding at the Moolah Ballroom and I can not say enough about Chad and the whole staff! He is such an easygoing, amicable person to work with! There was nothing that we asked that he did not do for us, plus some extras. The food was good, staff was very professional and super courteous to all of our guests. People have been talking about how lovely everything was and I am sure they will continue! I would HIGHLY recommend anyone to Genesis and I am glad we chose them to make our day even more memorable!

I cannot possibly say enough good things about Genesis. Chad was AMAZING to work with - he answered every question we had during the planning thoroughly and always got back to us quickly. The food was outstanding and even picky eaters raved about how phenomenal the roast beef was! Special kudos to Genesis because one of my guests and I both have gluten allergies and they catered to our needs flawlessly. All of the Genesis staff went above and beyond the evening of our wedding to make sure that we were taken care of and that things went smoothly. Not a single detail was missed and they were beyond professional and kind to us, as well as to all of our guests. Genesis should be at the top of every bride's list - incredible value for the money and Chad truly made the planning as stress free as it could have been!

The people at Genesis are such a pleasure to work with. They walk you through the entire reception process. They were all willing to make time for you to go over how you wanted things to be set up, when you wanted to eat, ect. The facility was beautiful, and the staff well dressed. The entire reception went AS PLANNED!!!

Genesis was a great place to have our reception! I will be honest, I originally did not want my reception at a typical reception hall. After the powers that be (my parents) didn't give me much of a choice we found genesis. I was SO impressed with their ability to make the reception hall look and feel unique and individualized. They let me bring is so much and even set up the centerpieces for me! Megan in the office is always quick to get back to you and offers great recommendations for vendors. My breath was taken away when I walked in, the normally beautiful room was transformed into exactly what I wanted! And the food...WOW! Everyone in my bridal party got a second plate. I got more complements on the food and service than I ever thought possible! It's nice to know that my guests enjoyed it as much as I did!
