I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Lifestyles Catering and on top of that their food is amazing! Not only did they provide great catering, they went above and beyond to make it my husband and I comfortable and make sure we ate; which is something many couples forget to do on their wedding day. All of my guests said the staff were top notch and they loved the food, especially the chicken piccata. For a great wedding experience you have to hire Lifestyles Catering.

Lifestyles Catering responded with the following comments:

I'm so glad that we could help you make the memories of your wedding so wonderful.
Yes, it is our practice to ALWAYS serve the Bride and Groom first. We know that so often the Bride and Groom will get so involved enjoying their guests and the party, that they don't take time to sit down, relax and get a bite to eat. (And when they don't eat it always leads to being uncomfortable later in the evening.)
Again thank you, and we all wish you many happy years together.

It was a pleasure to work with you and your family for your wedding celebration. I was very impressed with the way that you added your personal touches to the Clocktower. Every corner, every table had a personalized display; your guest book table, the cake/cupcake table and your sweets station. You obviously put a lot of thought and work into these stations.
I wish you many years of happiness.
Cheers!

Michelle and Cory's wedding at Willow Ridge Manor was one of the top 5 best days of my life! Willow Ridge Manor is a gorgeous place for a wedding - even in March! Thank you, thank you, thank you Gregory and Lawrence for your professionalism and support to the mother of the bride throughout this experience. It was magnificent! Guests had a fabulous time and raved about the food. Pati was so easy to work with and responsive to all of our questions when deciding on all the food and catering set-up. The staff was courteous and helpful. Gregory's knowledge, wisdom, and wit guided us through the whole process seamlessly and joyously.

Amazing! My husband and I planned our wedding in 6 weeks, Pati was our event coordinator and was fabulous! She was always available and very patient with me and all of my menu changes. She was able to provide the food we wanted at the price we wanted! Very quick to provide proposals for my review and was always able to find a way to honor my requests. The day of the wedding Pati was there to make sure everything was perfect, which it was!

The food was great and the service was too! I highly recommend Lifestyles Catering and Pati!!

Pati is awesome! I am sure that other words would describe her, but awesome is the word that pretty much sums it up. I had contacted other caterers in Denver and one caterer took three weeks to respond and the other never responded. I spoke with Pati and at the end of our 30 minute conversation, she assured me that she would have a proposal together by the end of the day. When I arrived at work 15 minutes later, the proposal had been emailed to me. We had several communications and she was always reassuring. The food was fantastic at the tasting and tasted the exact same at the wedding reception. The staff are professional, courteous, organized and most of all helpful. Our wedding coordinator was solo because her assistant was under the weather. The catering staff saw this and assisted however they could to get things ready for the reception. I would tell anyone to look no further, you are in good hands. You get what you pay for and we should have paid much more for everything that we got. Thank you for making my daughter's wedding day spectacular.

Lifestyles did more than just cater our wedding! Not only was the food DELISH, but the staff was amazing!!! The one who I can not rave about enough, was Liz O. Liz was with me the whole day! She stayed with me before walking down the aisle, and made sure to walk my Groom and I right over to the food after the introduction. She even made sure we had plates of appetizers on the table from the cocktail hour. She was our shining star for sure!! Now as for the food.... YUM!! It was kept nice and hot, and tasted wonderful. The staff did a great job of moving the line and helping people as needed since this was buffet style. After a bit of dancing, it was time for the toast, and before I could even ask if the champagne was handed out, everyone already had their glasses in the air. They were so professional, and just so wonderful to work with. Lifestyles Catering is the exclusive caterer to our venue, and I can see why! I could not have asked for better!

I had the opportunity to work with Brook for my St. Patrick's Day wedding. She first asked me for a little information on what type of food I wanted, what type of style my wedding was going to be, and what kind of a budget we needed to stick to. When we went for our tasting, she had picked everything out so perfectly, that we served exactly what she reccommended at the wedding! She even had the chef design an appetizer just for us that was St. Patrick's Day themed! The food was great, and the service was wonderful!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Lifestyles Catering! Kari was our main contact with the company and she was incredible with helping us choose food, helping with choosing decor, and really everything that we had to do! The food was absolutely delicious (I still have friends and family telling me how good it was!), and everything went smoothly at our reception.

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Lifestyles Catering! Kari was our main contact with the company and she was incredible with helping us choose food, helping with choosing decor, and really everything that we had to do!

Hi Kirstin,
Thank you for the event applause and with only having a few events with charger plates, your choice of red on the tables of black & white was visually stunning. I am so thankful that we took the time to do a table set-up before hand! All the best to you and Kurt.

I recently got married at the Willow Ridge Manor, catered by Lifestyles Catering.

The entire day was like a dream! Jay really helped ensure everything went smoothly, and as planned. He was flexible with everything, and literally catered to our every need. The staff was prompt and professional, there when you need them, but not hanging around making you feel uncomfortable.

The wedding was a few months ago now, and I'm still hearing people talk about how great the food was, and how the venue was perfect!

I would strongly recommend Lifestyles for future events, and will consider them again if I need anything. Thanks Lifestyles for making my wedding a dream come true!!

Alexandra and Luke,

It was a pleasure working with both of you from the first time i met you at Willow Ridge Manor to the tasting at Lifestyles Catering to the day of your wedding. I love being involved in every detail but never want to make you feel uncomfortable so we know when to keep our distance also. With clients like both of you it makes our job easy and your wedding day flawless.

Best Wishes to both of you!

I had my wedding at Willow Ridge Manor and used lifestyles catering on May 29, 2011. The food was fabulous! The waiters were wonderful. Seriously, there were two waiters that followed me around all night and catered to my every need! They were fabulous. They got me my drinks all night and quite frankly treated me, the bride, like the princess I felt like on that day. A little cliche, I know, but so true! The bartenders were also excelent. I highly recomend lifestyles. Jay Villa and Gregory were wonderful and helped me every step of the way with my wedding planing.

Days after the wedding, I was still hearing about how great the food was and how nice the employees were. It was raining the day of my wedding, so we moved the ceremony inside, but then the rain stopped, so, at the last minute, Jay Villa and his staff rushed to move the ceremony back outside. I felt horrible asking Jay to move everything back outside, but he and his staff are so easy going and they made it seem like it was not a big deal at all, and they made me feel comfortable about my decision. I would highly recommend Lifestyles Catering. The staff is very flexible and a lot of fun to work with. They take care of everything and they make sure that your night is worry free.

Gina,

It was a pleasure working with you from start to end, from rushing into the tasting because Thomas was leaving the country to making sure we went over the final details and even moving the wedding back outside at the last minute. We at Lifestyles Catering take pride in our customer service and in making sure that you know we are very flexible and will always try to meet your needs even with last minute changes. I WISH YOU BOTH THE BEST

It was very helpful to know that someone can send you reminders of when things are due because it can become overwhelming to keep it all straight! The food was amazing we got the chicken parmsean and braised beef tips and they were amazing! The staff was another great part, they were so friendly and outgoing! Thank you Lifestyles for amazing food on our big day!

Lifestyles Catering is the exclusive caterer for Willow Ridge Manor and I wasn't sure how I felt about that but now that everything is said and done with My wedding, I couldn't be happier. The food and service was fantastic!!! I dealt with Brooke and she is the girl to work with. I think I exchanged about 100 emails with her and she responded to everyone of them in a very timely manner!! Lawrence was at my wedding when Gregory had left for the evening and he was so helpful and made sure my husband and I were taken care of. His staff was wonderful and professional and kept everything clean and tidy throughout the whole evening. Thank you for such a wonderful job!!!

Lifestyles catering provides all the catering for weddings held at Willow Ridge Manor. The menus were varied with many options depending on what you are looking for. The cost was affordable for the number of guests we had. Whitney and Nate didn't want a wedding cake as neither of them are fond of cake but rather they wanted brownies. We had a hard time finding someone who would do brownies for the wedding but when they told Lawrence about their struggle he immediatley got his chef to whip up some brownies while they were there going over their menu choices. Many of our guests commented on how good they were. They had 2 different flavors. The standard chocolate and then a blond orange marmalade flavor. ( a little slice of heaven as many said) Many of our guests also commented on the food. It was great and sometimes people aren't all that enthused by buffet style food but honestly we got many compliments on how good the food was. Lastly the wait and bar staff were all very attentive always asking if there was anything we needed and if there was it was handled immediately.

I remember when I was meeting with Whitney and Nate, how they were kind of shy about letting me know that they wanted Brownies for their wedding instead of a traditional cake. But when I heard of their wish, I knew we had a selection of Brownies and Bars that would meet their needs. I’m so pleased that they were happy with the Brownies and Orange Marmalade Blondes.
Congratulations on your wedding and I’m happy that Lifestyles Catering could work with you making your day special and memorable.

We recently got married at Willow Ridge Manor and did not have the option of choosing our own caterer for our wedding. To my surprise the caterer we had to choose turned out to be incredibile! During the tasting, my fiance and I were not completely impressed with the dishes they served us. But by the time the wedding came around we were completely impressed. The food was just great and we kept having guests come up to us and tell us throughout our night that the food was amazing!!

Everything was fresh, delicious and well worth the prices of the package that we chose. We were on a budget and chose one of the smaller packages, but even with that package we were pleasantly surpised with how great everything turned out to be!! The staff was also amazing and very professional. I would definetly use them again for my next big event!!

Thanks Lifestyles Catering & Staff for being so great!!!

One of the wedding venues my husband and I were considering for our reception uses Lifestyles Catering exclusively which is how we were introduced to them. We decided to not to go with that venue for our wedding but after talking with Kara from Lifestyles Catering for five minutes we were so impressed that we decided that if they would come to Evergreen for our wedding, we would use them. From the first phone call with Kara, she immediately put us at ease about planning a reception to remember. We had a million questions for her to answer and she was incredibly patient and kind in answering each one.

Kara's professionalism was unmatched and she bent over backwards to take any stress off our plates and to make our planning sessions fun and relaxed. She listened to what was most important to us and went out of her way to ensure that what meant the most to us was the center of the reception. Kara's humor helped ease stressful decisions and her honesty helped make our reception a stunning success!

My husband and I can not say enough about Kara and Lifestyles Catering. This is a company that truly cares about the success of your wedding and goes out of their way to help make your dreams come true! Our budget was really tight and Kara went above and beyond to ensure we would have amazing food without exceeding our financial limitations. My husband and I decided that delicious food was something that we cared a lot about and Kara helped us design a menu that was fantastic!

Your wedding planning will be stressful and it's really hard to put your faith and trust in other people to help you pull off the wedding you've always dreamed of. We put our trust in Kara and she not only didn't let us down, but far exceeded our expectations. Make things easy on yourself and book with Lifestyles Catering, Kara will give you a night to remember! We will forever treasure our wedding and Kara for making it so spectacular!

Our wedding was held at Willow Ridge Manor on July 4, 2009. We booked with WRM approximately one year in advance and began planning the food with Lifestyles Catering in December, 2008. Having lived in the area for 15 years, we were very aware of the fact that the Manor was unique setting for weddings and wanted to assure we reserved it for our special day. We found it very convenient that Lifestyles Catering was the exclusive caterer for events held at the Manor; the fact that the companies work together frequently and consistently assured us that the service would be perfect....and it was. As we requested, appetizers were served to the wedding party during the post-ceremony photo shoot. The main course of balsamic chicken and beef tenderloin was excellent; a fact echoed by all of the guests. Lawrence French, the proprietor of Lifestyles Catering was in attendance until the last guest left and both he and Gregory Sargowicki, the owner of Willow Ridge Manor were a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them both. Together, both companies host a very enjoyable and affordable event and one that will never be forgotten.

We worked with Dijana for planning and our captain for the evening was Dan. Both were great to work with. Dijana is extremely helpful and attentive. She helped us out with more than just catering she helped us to get great rates at local hotels and really made us feel special. Dan was fantastic as well, he made sure to greet us and touch base with us several times throughout the evening to make sure we were doing well.

The food was really good, we did a buffet style so we were a bit worried but it all turned out great and we got a lot of compliments on how good everything was! The potatoes were my favorite!!

My only suggestion to future brides would be that they provide you with a coordinator, in our case it was Dijana, who I am so glad we got to work with, she was beyond great. But I would also recommend getting a coordinator for the day of. The catering coordinator has so much work to do with food that it is helpful to have a separate coordinator for all the little details and deliveries. I am so glad that Willow Ridge Manor provided us this caterer!!

Hi Sharan & Nicole,
We did it...we transformed Cluster Studios into a beautiful wedding reception and it was truly amazing-the color choices, decor, and table set-up all came together. Thank you for your confidence and comfort with us and our expertise in event design...although Nicole your vision was extremely helpful!

Very professional and very good at what they do. About two months before the wedding, they call and organize all your linens and your table set up. All the packages include lines, bartender, drinks (non alcoholic), mixers for the alcoholic drinks you will bring in, staff, tables, and food. Very stressfree.

Also, the caterers served my new husband and I the whole night. We got our own personal waitress waiting on us all night long. Food was excellent. Loved the cornucopias. We got the heavy hor deurvres with two carving stations and it was very delicious.

Natalie & Josh, you were an absolute pleasure to work with and thank you for taking the time to provide me with your feedback. I will always remember Josh’s detailed attention to the linen colors and chair ties…and if you know Josh- that makes for a few smiles. Your menu fit your style and the event vision beautifully. Thank you very much for the pictures and card; wow, that double rainbow following our slightly inconvenient weather was worth having pictures take a bit longer
Heartfelt Congratulations on your wedding!!

Lifestyles catering did a fantastic job catering our wedding. From the appetizers to the main menu to the dessert, everything was perfect. Kari is a joy to work with and made the process carefree. They were so flexible with the menu and changing things around for us. The staff at the reception was fabulous and so friendly. They took care of everyone, were efficient and made sure everything was when and where it should be. The food itself was delicious!!! I wish they had a restaurant we could continue to go to for the food! All of our guests raved about how wonderful the food was and how great the staff was. If you are thinking of an affordable, delicious catering company with top-notch service, I would definitely recommend Lifestyls Catering!

The food for our wedding turned out great! Dan, the banquet captain, was awesome and did a great job checking in with us throughout the night to be sure everything was going according to plan. The staff did a great job making sure my husband and I ate throughout the night which was so appreciated. The bar staff was very friendly and did a great job taking care of guests!

Communication leading up the event was a little spotty at times, but never panic mode. It would take up to a week to get responses on emails but in the end everything went off without a hitch.

The food was delicious and I will say it was helpful working with a caterer who knew our wedding venue inside and out (like not to put the chocolate fountain in a particular corner because there was a AC draft!).

All and all, it was a great event.

Best food! My husband and I were so impressed with our food on our wedding day, and we have received so many compliments on the menu and the catering we selected.

We selected chicken, beef medallions, salad, a vegetable medley and potatoes for the main dish and everything was perfect! Crisp veggies, tender moist meat that was seasoned perfectly and perfect mashed potatoes! We also chose not to have a cake and instead had cheesecake lollipops which our caterer worked extremely hard on perfecting and making sure was exactly what we wanted.

All of my friends getting married in the near future asked for the contact information for our caterer.

Thank you Brooke and Lifestyles catering!!!

Thank you Amber & Rick! It was a pleasure to work with you both. Very, very glad we met that day, which what seems like long ago, last October at the Castle. Yes, your cheesecake pops (and don't forget your gazebo!) were a labor of love on my behalf, and I am so glad they turned out exactly how you wanted. You two are a beautiful couple with a beautiful future ahead. Best wishes always and keep in touch! ~Brooke

Lifestyles has some of the best food I'd ever had. At first we were matched with an odd lady who wasn't the easiest to work with but when we switched to the woman who works there now it was a breeze. They wanted to know about our theme, helped create a complementary menu, and works flawlessly with Willow Ridge events. Their staff was SO nice and helped us through the line, brought us water right after the ceremony, snacks during the photo session and helped with stuff they didn't do like our sweets table. They talked to guests, asked us how we wanted things done, but left me at ease to simply walk around and have fun. We got so many compliments over the food and people went up for seconds. Their loaded potato bar is amazing.

The Lifestyles team did an excellent job of making our special day memorable. We were left to not have to worry about any of the details of our service and reception as they displayed the experience and professionalism one would expect of a valued vendor on such a special day. The food itself was great and most of our guests commented about that after the ceremony over and over again. Based on our experience we would recommend having the professionals at Lifestyles help you at your events to make the day even more special.

Overall, Lifestyles Catering was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was at Willow Ridge Manor, which exclusively uses Lifestyles Catering. When you first book with Willow Ridge, you are paired with a Lifestyles coordinator to help plan your event. They have a wide variety of (delicious) food to choose from and create an atmosphere that will work with any event. The prices are decent, but the quality of food is worth the price.

Lawrence French was very patient with me when I couldn't make up my mind about what dishes to serve and was very helpful in the decision making process. They made special dishes for myself and my vegetarian guests. I thought that the prices were a little steep, but seem comparable to other catering companies. I highly recommend the tuxedo strawberries, they were a hit with my guests!

The staff at Lifestyles Catering was amazing. We got married at Willow Ridge Manor and Lifestyles is their exclusive caterer. Their food was amazing, our guests loved it. More importantly, we are a little picky and they met our needs. The groom and a couple guests were gluten intolerant and the staff did not have to be told twice to set food aside and get them food that met their dietary needs. We had special wine for dinner as opposed to the bar wine, and they follow instructions to a tee in terms of serving it. The captain for the day was wonderful. She made sure the reception kept its flow and she thought of things I didn't even think of - and trust me, I thought I thought of everything! When ordering our food we went twice for a tasting because my parents wanted to taste it, but the groom couldn't come when they were in town...so Lifestyles accomodated us and let us taste the food twice. I wanted a specific type of salad and they accomodated my request. Lawrence walked me though the reception in terms of a timeline and a visual, which really helped make me feel comfortable. Everyone from Lawrence, the organizer, to Joanna, the captain, to the bartenders and wait staff were professional and amazing!!!

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING LIFESTYLES.

Lifestyles Catering responded with the following comments:

Courtney,
Working with you was a pleasure. I am happy that your special day was just that SPECIAL!
Catering is not only about cooking and serving food, it is about planning and thinking through every event, looking for all of the details that need to be filled in and anticipating all of the little surprises that may come up when we are on site and making sure that we are ready to react and make the event as smooth and as seamless as possible. Courtney was very well organized, with flow charts and duty assignments which helped us to bring her vision to life.
Courtney had chosen a wine theme for her wedding and I particularly liked one of the centerpieces which was a bubble vase with a votive candle surrounded by wine corks. I have borrowed that idea for a reception for ARC Thrift Stores and it was a huge hit. Thank you for the idea.
Best of luck to you and Neil, I wish you all the happiness in your new life together.

The food was great, better even than I had expected, and everything looked beautiful. I didn't have to worry about a thing, they were in control the entire time and helped guide us through all the events of the night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!

Lifestyles Catering is the required caterer for Willow Ridge Manor. I did not like that I had to use a specific caterer, however the service was great and the staff that was at our wedding did a phenomenal job. I was very pleased with our organizer Kara and felt like the wedding went off without any problems.... well except for my brother passing out during the ceremony! LOL! Nothing to do with the caterer though!

I would recommend Lifestyles and Willow Ridge Manor. It was a wonderful venue and a beautiful wedding. It wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did without them!

I can not say enough about the professionalism of Lifestyle Catering. My only suggestion would be that the bridal party have a contact person outside the bridal party so that when the food is ready there is someone to contact to make sure the bridal party is ready to be served and things are on time. Because the food is made off site it is very important that the catering service knows if things are running behind so not to place food to be served to early. I would highly recommend Lifestyles Catering to anyone wishing to make there special day even more special.

I have always been a firm believer in forethought and planning. While we want everybody to have a wonderful time at the wedding, having a plan and a timeline to work with is always helpful to keep things moving forward smoothly.
Also, thank you for the suggestion for a contact person who is not in the bridal party. There are so many things happening during the wedding and reception that having somebody that can stand back and get an overview of the party is always helpful.

Overall, Lifestyles did a fantastic job for our wedding at Willow Ridge Manor. The food tasted incredible, and the staff is very professional. The prices are a little high, and had to rearrange our budget a little. The part that upset us was when my mother spoke with a coordinator before signing with Willow Ridge, she was told that "seasonal pricing" was also offered with the caterer. And when it came time to discuss the menu and pricing and the "seasonal pricing" was asked about, we were told "oh your discount is signing with Willow Ridge in his off season" So basically because we saved 75% with Willow Ridge for our event in March, that was also our discount with the caterer, eventhough they are 2 separate entities.

Also in speakng about the flow of our event and timing of everything, we were told we had 60min after the ceremony for picture taking before dinner. In reality we were given approx. 30 min, and half of the pictures that were requested by us were not able to be taken. Therefore a number of our family members were rather upset about missed picture opportunities with the bride and groom.

The fact that Lifestyles is the exclusive caterer for Willow Ridge Manor is both great and frustrating. Great because you don't have to shop around, but frustrating because you feel trapped when you don't like things.

In the end, the food was incredible and everyone raved about it. The staff did a great job with our guests and the whole event went better than expected. It's just all the behind the scenes stuff.

What drew me to Lifestyles was their willingness to create a custom menu for our wedding. We wanted a menu that reflected our Southern roots. We created a plan to serve signature southern cocktails, a low country boil and and grits station with various accoutrements. This was the ONLY caterer that would even entertain creating a custom "southern" menu for us. They even made bread pudding (from my husband's recipe) for dessert. We have had numerous compliments from our guests that the food was "the best wedding food they have ever had!" The service staff were friendly and accommodating and responsive to requests. We unfortunately lost our event coordinator - who we loved - two weeks before our wedding. Our inherited coordinator informed me of her involvement by email and communicated with me only once by phone. I met her in person two days before my wedding, at her office, which was no inconvenience to her. Despite the excellent food I would not have recommended Lifestyles until after the owner, Gregory, took the time to speak with me in person about my experience. We sat for an hour and exchanged how the transition from one coordinator to another was handled and the few things which were not received from our contract. He was sincere and apologized when Lifestyles was remiss. He assured me that my concerns would be addressed with his staff and I received a thank you note for my constructive feedback shortly afterwards. I believe Gregory will address the issues we discussed. if corrected I am confident Lifestyles has the creative edge and quality to be worthy of a five star rating.

Great food but way over priced the day of the employees that worked the event were great but every thing leading up to the wedding was a nightmare. little to no contact. the person working with us also forgot what all we needed the day before and emailed the bride to be with concerns instead of speakingwith the planner or any body that was not stressed. very bad communication and very over priced.

I can't imagine anyone who would pick this caterer without the exclusive contract they have with Willow Ridge. Their prices are absurdly high compared to any other estimate I got from other vendors.

The scam with Willow Ridge is that there is a very nice fellow named Gregory who runs it. He requires this one caterer, Lifestyles. If you sign the contract with Gregory, you're stuck. He will say that Lifestyles is competitive, but they are not. I compared apples to apples with the Food Guy. It wasn't our final package, but the cost was $67/person with Lifestyles and $45/person with the Food Guy. I consider this to be a scam. The prices of Willow Ridge are reasonable, and that's the hook.

You might assume they make it up with great service. Nope. After the ceremony the guests will go back inside for drinks and appetizers. You would think someone on the staff would bring drinks or appetizers to the wedding party having their pictures taken for 45 minutes. They did not, not even water. They just sat on their asses.

The food was fine. I have no complaints there.

Lifestyles Catering responded with the following comments:

Zem, also known as Mark, started his ranting through Willow Ridge Manor in the beginning of February. It seems that there were financial difficulties in the family and he felt if he were to start in with a rant of how “outrageously high” the catering was, and how he “didn’t particularly like the food, [provided by Lifestyles Catering]," he could wiggle out of his contracts with Lifestyles Catering and Willow Ridge Manor.

At some point Mark went to The Food Guy and requested a quote for his wedding if it were held at Hudson Gardens. The quote from The Food Guy came in at $45/person as opposed to the actual price of $60/person, not $67 as claimed from Lifestyles Catering. When the two proposals are compared side by side, apples to apples, it is interesting to see the differences in what is provided and what is not.
• The buffet menu, very similar
• The staffing level, exactly the same

This is where the similarities end.
• The shift for the staff
o Hudson Gardens-7 hours
o Willow Ridge Manor-9 hours, (2 more hours of party time)
• The appetizers
o from The Food Guy, two bites of passed appetizer per person, (many guests wouldn’t get anything)
o from Lifestyles Catering, displayed veggie basket and Artichoke Spinach Dip with Chips, (plenty for all of the guests)
• The beverages
o Not included in the price quoted by The Food Guy in his proposal, and the client to “bring in the bar mixers”
o Provided by Lifestyles Catering, Sodas, Iced Tea and Coffee and a full bar package, including mixers, juices bar fruit, ice and bar equipment and supplies
• Linens for gift table, DJ, Buffet
o $1 per person additional through The Food Guy
o Included in the Lifestyles Catering Prix Fixe menu price

To address the lack of attention shown the wedding couple during their pictures; Few couples realize that after the ceremony they are still “working,” finishing up the formal portraits, family and group pictures. For the Bride and Groom the party doesn’t start until they are announced into the ballroom to join their guests. In the meantime the catering staff is busy attending to the couple’s guests, staying out of the way of the Photographer so he can finish his very important job, in a timely manner, before the dinner starts. Eating and drinking is usually not part of the picture taking experience. Photo shop is a great tool but it can only do so much for soda or wine spilled on the wedding gown or bits of spinach in those great big smiles the photographer is always asking for.

This incident also illustrates a lack of communication. While we try to anticipate our client’s needs and wants, we do not read minds. A simple word to any of the catering staff is all that it would have taken for beverages and appetizers to be served to the wedding party while they were taking pictures. Unfortunately no one from the catering staff knew that Mark and his bride needed refreshments and we didn’t find this out until three weeks after his wedding.

If on your wedding day you need/want something done by any of your vendors, a simple and civil request is all you need and we will do what ever we can to make it happen. While your vendors are not your servants, we are there to assist you to make your celebration as complete and enjoyable as possible.
