My husband and I had Genetti's cater our wedding in Pine Grove, PA. We worked with Patrick and he was very helpful when it came to planning out how to use the space at our venue. This was a new venue for them and that was never a problem. The day before and of the wedding Patrick was very helpful and made sure everything was perfect. He and his staff even helped set up and clean up items that were not made by his company (i.e. our dessert table). Everyone who attended our wedding raved about the food, specifically the cocktail hour appetizers. Many also commented about the friendly and polite staff. The only reason I gave this company a 4 instead of a 5 was because we had some bumps along the way. I met with Patrick multiple times and asked him for prices for tablecloths, food items, etc and waited a long time for a response every time. I would usually end up emailing Amy or Marcie in the office before I would get a response. I also set up a meeting with Patrick at my venue that he did not show up to. He and Amy felt badly about this and after that incident I only communicated with Amy via email until I met with Patrick at my venue a few weeks later. Amy is fabulous and answered all of my questions and requests in a timely manner. Patrick is an excellent caterer with tons of experiences, but is not great at getting back to you. I would recommend this caterer, but be sure to let Marcie or Amy know you would like to communicate through them.

My Oyster wedding was simply magical!

Lindsay, the wedding planner, was absolutely fantastic! I cannot rave about her enough. The planning process was stress free due to her expertise. She is extremely detail orientated and every request I had was met with open arms and enthusiasm. She is truly the BEST in the industry – it is no wonder David Tutera picked her to shadow him a few months ago! You can tell she loves what she does and it shows through her work and dedication to making her brides happy. Whether it be via phone or email, Lindsay was always available and prompt when corresponding with me. My mind was always at ease knowing she was at the forefront of the planning.

The food, décor, cake, flowers, and ceremony space all exceeded my expectations. The staff was professional and courteous and our head waiter, Michael was fantastic! He went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed throughout the night. I was having issues bustling my dress and Michael went to get Lindsay to help and also brought over my dessert so I could have a few bites while I waited.

I would recommend an Oyster wedding to anyone – it was everything I dreamed of and more.

Thank you again to Lindsay, Michael, Mr.Genetti, Mr.Greco and ALL of the staff at Genetti’s for a perfect day!

We just had our Oyster wedding at Genettis and it was fabulous! It is not the same Genettis that used to host your high school prom! The up lighting, table setting, and decor was beautiful and the food was delicious; everyone raved about it for days after. However the best part for me as a bride was Lindsay and the staff's attention and service. Lindsay made me feel at ease right from our first meeting. She helped us build our perfect package and was always available when I needed her. I can honestly say that I was not stressed over the reception because I knew she was handling it.
Lindsay was incredibly helpful and then there was Michael! Thanks to Michael We never had an empty drink or empty plate. He also made sure to make our families feel special as well.
All in all, great great experience

My Oyster wedding really was a DREAM COME TRUE! Lindsey helped take all the stress out of wedding planning (at least the reception part) She never told me or my husband "no" Whatever we asked no matter how bizarre or unique she made it happen. Oyster really is the best bang for your buck. They throw in soo many extras to make your day unique or special. The cocktail hour in the Oyster restaurant was just amazing. I'll share with you the Oyster Experience.. When you and your guests arrive you are greeted with a Marilyn Monroe martini in your hands. Cocktail hour is amazing in the Oyster Restaurant and around the pool. The Hors d'oeuvres were delicious and decorated with orchids. ! Then we proceed into the reception with is BREATHTAKING! When they announce you for the first time in public as bride and groom they shoot confetti sticks which creates such an awesome effect! EVERYONE COMPLIMENTED THE FOOD AND WAS soo impressed because they felt like they had their own private waiter/waitress at each table not just being served like a banquet. Our families shared with us that they were told they were VIP's and were treated that way. As the bride and groom we never had to go to the bar for a drink. Michael our personal waiter always made sure we had a drink in our hand, always checked on us, and made sure all our needs were meant. I can write a novel about how perfect the day went but you will just have to find out the rest for yourself when you book your Oyster wedding.. Lastly, after the wedding we had an after party in The martini lounge where they supplied pizza, nachos, and pretzels as late night snacks. When we went up to our suite they had chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, and a congratulations card. The next morning us and our guests got a complimentary breakfast in Oyster before we went our separate ways. They sent us home with soo much cake! The cake was the best ever and designed just the way I imagined! Thank you soo much Lindsay and the Oyster Team!

I can't say enough wonderful things about my experience at Genetti's. Lindsay was wonderful to work with. She would get back to me immediately about any questions. I gave them some decorations and when I walked in our room on the day of our reception, I couldn't believe how beautiful it looked. I knew they would do a good job, but it was beyond anything I could have imagined. It was also so nice that I didn't have to worry about decorating or setting up, they took care of everything. I brought in some decorations for the cake too, and that looked amazing as well. The prices are very affordable, and the food and service were also great. I can't thank Genetti's enough for a great night!

I recently had an Oyster wedding at Genetti's Best Western in Wilkes Barre, PA. Let me tell you, I have never been to a nicer wedding, and so many of my guests have told me the same. The entire thing, from ceremony to reception was just breath taking. They had every square inch of my reception covered in beautiful white drapery, with the exact colored uplighting I requested on all the white drapes. They include basically everything, so I had almost stress free planning due to Lindsay (The wedding coordinator who is absolutely fabulous) handling almost everything. The centerpieces by A & M Floral were perfect, and they were included with the wedding package. The food was delicious, and they went way above and beyond with the quantities and varieties that they gave to the guests. The staff was so polite, and seemed to cater to everyone's requests with a smile on their face. I have absolutely nothing negative to say at all about my wedding night except that maybe it flew by so fast! Oh, and we also had our rehearsal dinner at Genetti's the night before, and that was perfect as well! They gave us a private banquet room, and had a wonderful buffet and open bar for the guests, as well as a variety of deserts and coffee. They left "to go" containers for everyone to bring food home with them at the end because they served so much! I can't say enough nice things about this place! You will never find a better place to have your wedding for the $$$!!!!
