Planning a Florida beach wedding from England seemed like a daunting task, but some amazing vendors in Sarasota made it easy, and Heidi was one of them.

Mattison's Forty-One were recommended by our wedding planner and throughout all our email communication, they were helpful every step of the way. We began our initial planning with Jessica and then Heidi helped us to finalize all of our details once we confirmed our booking.

Heidi was so receptive to all of my ideas for our reception and really made every effort to assist me wherever she could. When we visited a few months before our wedding and I finally got to meet Heidi, I knew we had chosen the right person to help us plan our reception. So friendly and full of knowledge, she truly was a pleasure to work with.

I left the set-up of our reception in her capable hands and Heidi delivered! When we walked into our reception, everything was exactly as we had discussed, down to the tiniest detail. All of our guests raved about the food and loved our private room. Our waiters and bar staff on the day were also extremely kind and prompt with serving.

I would highly recommend Mattison's Forty-One. They made our wedding reception a dream come true! :)

Everyone at Mattison's 41 is amazing!

Heidi was my coordinator and is so sweet! She was able to work with our budget and was so helpful throughout this entire process. She was always very timely when responding and was able to answer all 8 million questions I had. We always heard the food here was great but our tasting sealed the deal. It is awesome.

Chef Ken prepared our tasting selections and we were so impressed we requested him for our wedding day! Throughout the coming months I later learned that he was no longer doing weddings full time anymore. I was a little bummed. To my surprise he was able to be there on our wedding day!!!! I was so excited and could not believe my eyes. That was so thoughtful and I am so glad he was able to be there. The food was awesome, I know sometimes wedding food can be hit or miss but Mattison's delivers! The food was fresh and hot, cooked perfectly. We had three passed appetizers, fruit and cheese display, salad with two dressing choices, Filet mignon or Chicken Cordon Bleu for entree choices!

A few days before we met with Paul Mattison at our venue location to do a walk through of the wedding day and go over any last minute details. I thought that was a really nice touch that he took the time out of his day to come and do that. He was really nice and helped us with a back up plan for rain just in case, the weather had been a little rainy close to our wedding. We also saw him the day of our wedding as well. I am sure he came to make sure everything was running smoothly.

Our chefs, bartenders, servers, coordinators, and everyone else in between were great! I highly recommend using Mattison's as your wedding caterer. You will not be disappointed.

This was simply the best wedding food I have ever tasted. We had steak or grouper as entrees, and everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Everyone at our wedding could not get over how delicious the food was. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive, and during our sit down dinner, no one waited too long for their food. We also had several hors d'oeuvres and you could tell that effort and care had been put into each bite. Mattison's also did our cake. They were very helpful and gave you a plethora of different flavors, fillings, and soakings that you could mix and match with to create your perfect cake. They even made different tiers different flavors in order to get a sample of everything. All in all, we chose this caterer due to their incredible reputation and in no way did they disappoint.

Mattison's was by far the absolute BEST. Paul and Heidi were lifesavers and far exceeded all our expectations. We were hesitant at first because the prices were a little higher than others and Jessica, our first contact at Mattison's, was hard to work with. But after our tasting we had no doubt they were/are the best. We changed our menu and budget and rental needs numerous times and every time Heidi was extremely flexible and helpful. On the days leading up to our wedding, Paul met with us twice at our venue to go over table and chair placement. He was so knowledgable and we were confident with his work. On our wedding day they were the first ones on scene and the last ones to leave, planning and rearranging everything due to weather. We are still getting compliments on how amazing the food was, our steak was even better than most steak houses we've been to. Also, get your cake here! Delicious!! My advice is start here first and work everything else out around Mattison's. With some of the other issues we were having with other vendors, Paul and Heidi took charge and saved our wedding.

I cannot say enough good things about Paul Mattison and his team. They were a joy to work with and orchestrated everything so seamlessly that I did not worry about a thing...which is difficult to do when planning a wedding from Texas! Paul put us at such ease that we trusted him completely and he did not disappoint. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The wait staff even made sure my husband and I had a big tray of appetizers and a drink to enjoy before we joined our guests at the reception. We did tastings at a number of different caterers around Sarasota and there was no comparison to Mattison's food. I can now say they have service to match!

Can I give Paul a 6 out of 5? Paul Mattison, with our coordinator, Heidi, are "can do" professionals. They were always polite, creative, organized, and detailed oriented. Mattison's catered our daughter's fairly complicated outdoor nighttime wedding in a location where it was a first for everything. We had less than 6 months to coordinate a lot of ideas from the bride and groom 1000 miles away. Paul and Heidi recommended the amazing lighting company, the perfect wedding singer and DJ, the most fun ice cream lady, the coolest officiant, plus plant companies, etc. It was obvious throughout planning and execution that Paul's standards are extremely high and what a well honed machine he runs from set up to clean up. We saved money by using Mattison's as our "planners" and by buying our own alcohol at stores where the unused was returnable. We did hire a day-of helper/coordinator. The food was over the top delicious, especially that raspberry white chocolate mousse cake (gasp!) and in the end so reasonable for what we ate and the overall presentation under the glow of the lights. Guests raved! Months later people are still calling to say it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Thanks Paul, we could have NEVER done it without you and your crew.
