Glorious Affairs catered our wedding this past November and everything was absolutely perfect. I couldn't have been any happier. Barbara made my husband and I feel so comfortable and listened to our ideas. She was so approachable and easily reachable when ever I had a question. She was so knowledgeable and made the entire process easier on us. The food was delicious and our guests are still complementing the food to this day. Barbara and her team made me feel stress free when it came to the food and the details surrounding how things were run. I was able to enjoy being the bride and concentrate on the important things on my wedding day instead of the miscellaneous details. Glorious Affairs executed every detail perfectly and everyone was impressed. I would recommend then for any event because it was an amazing experience and I have absolutely no complaints.

The staff at Glorious Affairs was wonderful to work with and did an excellent job with our wedding. Not only did they excel at their ability to make every meal taste as though it had been just ordered off a menu at a fine restaurant but they also helped us out as a wedding planner. We planned our entire wedding from out of state and met with the staff at Glorious the spring before our wedding to decide on the food, linen and small details that we wanted for our day. One of the aspects that was important to us was having our fur child, Hinckley, included in the ceremony but we needed to find a way to get him back to our rented cottage after the ceremony. The staff at Glorious stepped right in and told us not to worry about it. They figured it all out for us. We are still having guests from our wedding remark on how wonderful the food was and how the event felt very well thought out and was done to perfection. I was glad to have Glorious there for me because the staff at our actual venue was a bit difficult to deal with at times. Glorious managed everything for us and helped us not to worry about the little things and enjoy our night. It was a night to remember for sure.

Barbara and her team were so fun and easy to work with from beginning to end. The day of the event we were treated like King and Queen which neither of us were use to. The event wouldn't have been a success without their expertise and high quality service.

Glorious Affairs catered our Blithewold wedding and they were amazing. Not only was the food delicious, but working with Barbara was an absolute pleasure. We booked Glorious Affairs about a year and half before our wedding and loved working with Barbara throughout the entire time, we are going to miss not working with her anymore! She always made me feel like I was her only bride, she was always so responsive to my many questions and patient with our many revisions. Barbara helped us craft a creative menu and Glorious Affairs executed it perfectly on our wedding day. Our guests were all so impressed with the delicious food. Barbara and her staff were awesome on the day of - service was great and everyone was so attentive to our guests. Glorious Affairs assigns one person to the bride and groom on the wedding day, and Gaile was wonderful to us. She made sure that we had appetizers during formal photos, that we sat down and ate dinner, and was just so attentive to anything we needed. We had the most perfect wedding day and Glorious Affairs was a HUGE part of making it so perfect. I cannot recommend Glorious Affairs enough!

Barbara and her team at Glorious Affairs were amazing! My husband and I got married at the Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI on Memorial Day Weekend. We live in Massachusetts so communicated a lot via email with Barbara. She was so flexible in scheduling time to see us on weekends that she had available. The food and service was unbelievable. Everything tasted amazing and looked fabulous! We had so many compliments on the food at our wedding. Barbara and her team were incredibility welcoming from the beginning and helped us create a menu that worked for our needs, tastes, and wedding day. A lot of our other vendors came from Barbara's recommendations and they were wonderful too. I can't recommend Glorious Affairs enough. If I ever needed catering done again in the area I would not even look at another vendor.

My husband and I were recently married in October of 2013 in RI. We used Glorious Affairs as our caterer for our wedding at the Roger Williams Casino and LOVED THEM!!! Barbara Howlett and her staff were completely AMAZING. For my husband and I, both coming from Italian backgrounds the food was our main priority for our wedding - we wanted our guests to be blown away by the food and I can honestly say, that was a success. Barbara understood our ideas and was very helpful in suggesting food choices, pairings and drinks which would please guests. Our tasting was amazing, we were able to try every option we were considering for our wedding. I had asked about chicken cordon bleu (my favorite dish) which wasn't on their menu of suggested entree options due to the season and was surprised to have a plate made for me to try at our tasting - AMAZING!!! The risotto was out of this world. Barbara took care of every little detail which i had wanted a part of my wedding and when I walked into my reception ballroom I was blown away that everything was exactly as I had dreamed it would be. Her staff was so attentive to my guests the entire night. Guests were coming up to my husband and I throughout the night saying how good the food was. One guest was a retired DJ who had been to thousands of weddings who told us his meal was in the top 5 wedding meals he has ever had. The open bar was a hit, fully stocked and our signature apple cider margarita was awesome. I can honestly not say enough about how pleased, happy and grateful I (and my husband) are that we chose Glorious Affairs as our caterer - ABSOLUTELY choose them for your wedding caterer!!! :)

My now husband and I had a good feeling about choosing Glorious Affairs from the very start. We had been to many weddings together (over 20!) so we had a good idea of what we wanted and Barbara promised to put our vision into a reality. From the moment we met her, we felt like we had known her for years. She made us feel comfortable and was able to answer all of our questions in a timely manner throughout the entire planning process.

She assured us that since she came from a large family, there was always going to be more than enough food and gave us sound advice on all the details for the wedding. When it came down to the napkins and other smaller items - we did not care much as long as it looked nice and was reasonably priced. She created an atmosphere that looked like it had cost a fortune but it wasn't over the top and still gave off an impression that was our style and that we would have chosen ourselves!

On the day of, there was no stress - we knew we were being taken care of and in fact were assigned a staff member to look after our needs. We had heard from friends that they were so busy that they themselves had not been able to eat their own wedding meal. This was certainly not the case at our wedding - and thank goodness because we would have missed out! Not only were we brought trays of our decadent appetizers, but we were kept on schedule and were able to eat our fabulous meals in between greeting our guests.

Barbara's entire staff were fantastic and professional. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to make sure our needs were met. The GA staff was able to order off menu for our two nephews who changed their minds at the dinner table. Also, one of our guests was not feeling well and they made her a boiled chicken dinner! The food was everything promised and more. We had guests come up to us and said the food did not taste like "wedding food!" ;)

GA far surpassed our expectations and we would recommend them 1000%!

My husband and I met with Barbara close to two years ago. We had meetings and many revisions to proposals before we finally signed our contract. Hands down the best decision we made. Barbara became family to Josh and I. I'm sad she won't be in our daily lives anymore. She loves what she does, loves making all her brides happy, and offers advice outside of catering. She's there through the entire process. She takes your ideas and runs with them and can most definitely work with any budget. And her food, oh man her food, out of this world delicious!! Glorious Affairs is far from cookie cutter. She threw in things for our wedding that we were not expecting and guests loved them! The presentation of all the food was awesome! The cocktail hour food kept coming and it always warm. The main course came out perfectly, everything was hot and cooked to perfection! Guests raved about how good the food was and how much they received. We definitely got our money's worth and then some. I'm only sad we didn't get to take any home. Her staff she had the night of our wedding was excellent!! They always made sure to ask if Josh and I needed anything and everything was always kept clean. You never saw dirty cups or plates sitting out. I could go on for days about how amazing Barbara, her team and her food is but you will just have to book her to find out. Trust me you will NOT regret it. There aren't enough thank you's in the world for Barbara!! We love her!!
