I HIGHLY recommend this catering company. I cannot say enough about how great Barbara and Glorious Affairs were for our wedding. Barbara was very attentive to our needs from our initial meeting through every last detail at the wedding. Her knowledge and experience were evident at every meeting as she helped to guide us through the whole process. After our first meeting with Barbara we immediately knew we were in the right place. Our wedding was very nontraditional in many aspects and not only did Barbara totally understand our vision and all of our needs, but she also was able to make amazing suggestions that I hadn’t thought of myself. The food at the wedding was really the perfect culmination of our entire experience with Glorious Affairs. Our guests continue to comment on how delicious the food was, how plentiful it was, and how wonderful and attentive all of the wait staff was! Thank you Barbara for making our day perfection!!

I can not say enough about this company. From the very beginning Barbara and her staff were amazing. They were there to answer any and every question we had. My husband and I had two different ideas of what kind of food we wanted. Glorious Affairs was able to meet both of our ideas! It was amazing, such a great day with such professional staff. I recommend them to every new bride I meet. They truly made my day amazing, I can not imagine having gone with another company!

Barbara and her team are, bar none, the best in the business. Being a mixed couple, we were really hoping to pull cultural elements from both sides into our evening. GA went above and beyond, from the killer mini carnitas tacos to the churros w/ house made chocolate sauce for dessert, we're still getting compliments on the food. We knew from the first meeting they would likely be our choice and the tasting solidified that! The wedding day itself could not have been more perfect - and we owe a great deal of the credit to Barbara and her staff. Sooooo much more than just a "caterer." But, beyond that, it's everything she does behind the scenes that makes the potential stress on the bride & groom just melt away. Thank you Barb, you're incredible!

Wonderful experience. Barbara was a creative and warm guide from our first conversations through the wedding reception. We had our reception at a small house and yard and Barbara did great job working with us to make the logistics work. Food (Sea Bass, beef filet and vegetarian tortellini) was superb -- guests (and hosts) very happy. GA also had a really nice staff -- very professional - excellence all the way around and a beautiful event.

Glorious Affairs catered my wedding and they did a fantastic job! All my guests raved about the food during and after the wedding. Even though me and my husband were busy throughout the night, the staff came over with a plate full of all the different appetizers during the cocktail hour and left different desserts at our table at the end of the so that we could taste everything! I almost didn't have main entree because I was going around and talking to all my guests but I am so happy that I sat down to eat because the beef tenderloin was by far one of the best I ever ate! Working with Wendy was such a pleasure. Right from the start she made me and my mom feel so comfortable and really helped us plan so many details of our wedding. The two things that we really wanted was good food and to have the wedding go smoothly and Wendy and her team made sure both of those things happened. Wendy was always very responsive and very sincere when we asked her opinion on certain things. I highly recommend Wendy and Glorious Affairs!!

We could have not been more pleased with the services provided by Wendy and her team to make our daughter's MAY 28, 2016 wedding at the Glen Manor House a great success. Starting with the tastings, we knew that this is going to be something special, the food flavors and the presentation were amazing. Wendy lend her expertise & helped the young couple to navigate through the extensive menu offerings to plan the pairings and the right portions and serving sequence for food and drink for the reception. When the big day came, Wendy and her staff did not disappoint, they delivered as promised, even exceeded our expectations. All the food was very delicious and beautifully presented. In fact, my husband and I are giving Glorious Affairs FIVE STARS for taste and presentation, they are on par with the finest dining that Newport, RI has to offer. During the whole evening, their staff worked like invisible fairies and created seamless flow from the wedding ceremony to cocktails, to fine dining, to dance party afterwards. As a mother of the bride, I want to thank Wendy for helping create a magical evening for the married couple and their guests, a truly " GLORIOUS AFFAIR" indeed.

Glorious Affairs catered our wedding at the Glen Manor House in May. Working with Wendy Cobb was amazing from the first meeting through our wedding day. Wendy was very responsive to all of our questions and we appreciated her professional and honest opinions, as well as knowledge of our venue, as we were working out all of the details. The Glorious Affairs staff really delivered on our wedding day and we’ve received many compliments from our guests that the food at our wedding was not only the best they’ve ever had at a wedding, but some of the best food they’ve had. The quality of the ingredients and the presentation of the passed and plated dishes were superb. We would highly recommend Wendy and Glorious Affairs!

Wendy Cobb and her team at Glorious Affairs were amazing from the day we met her until our wedding at the Towers on 5/20/16. Kait felt like Wendy was a family member because she was so welcoming and made Kait felt very comfortable with any questions she might have. Wendy even calmed down Kait over the phone one day when Kait thought something might go wrong. They were very organized and everything was on time at the wedding. There were all empty plates delivered back to the kitchen and everyone raved about the food. Their presentations were exactly what we were looking for...classy and thoughtful. We even enjoyed going to pick out the linens in Newport with Wendy to make our day feel so special and unique. The servers also kept our glasses filled at the wedding and made sure we were happy. I would highly recommend Wendy and her team at Glorious Affairs.

My husband and I were married in Newport, RI this past October and could not have been more pleased with Barbara and her team at Glorious Affairs. First off, the food was incredibly fresh and absolutely delicious. They nailed the "farm to table" vibe perfectly. Many of our guests could not believe the quality and freshness of our food--we received numerous compliments post-wedding. Everything from the bacon lollipops at cocktail hour to the mini lemon cello cones was presented and displayed in impeccable fashion. Barbara was warm, pleasant, open to feedback on all of the dishes, allowed us to make tweaks and changes, and was prompt in all correspondence with us. I would highly recommend Glorious Affairs to any bride considering getting married in Newport, RI!
