Brides Beware! The venue is beautiful you wont work with them. You work with their exclusive caterer / “event organizer” who is a nightmare!

- Jack is unorganized, non responsive and unwilling to take responsibility for his mistakes. After we signed our primary contract and paid our deposit – Jack sent us a revised contract that was $4,000 more than the primary. He informed us that he forgot to add the tent rental and the venue fee onto the original contract. We were naturally shocked and very upset. Jack was unwilling to take responsibility for his negligence and proceeded to blame me for not catching his mistake. After some persistence I only got him to credit us $1500. **After diligently reading through some other reviews I learned that he has done this in the past - so he either does it on purpose or doesn't care enough to learn from his mistakes.

- I had to chase them down to get answers to simple questions - most of the time it took at least a week for them to respond to me and I had to ask the same things 5 times before getting an actual answer. They even did this when i was trying to get them their payments.

- Our guests seemed to love the hors d'oeuvres but dinner didn't meet the same standard. The food and portions we were served at our tasting were delicious and well prepared, and the portions were huge! This is NOT what was served at our wedding – The Filet and vegetables were cooked well but the portions were much smaller and the upgraded Chicken Oscar looked and tasted like frozen chicken with 3 tiny pieces of crab on top without any sauce.

- Jack handles the correspondence until about 3 months before your event. When pulling teeth to get answers from him about setup - He told me “yes” when the real answer was “no”. I planned all my décor based on the expectation he gave. Three months before the wedding I met Cathy who handles the setup of your event. She let me know that half of what I planned wasn’t going to be possible. I had to change

Continued from below....

I had to change half my plans last minute - Thankfully my other vendors pulled through, helped out and saved the day.

- Cathy was the only semi-saving grace in this process. She is very hard to get a hold of but once you do, she at least tries to answer your questions correctly.

- I found out after the wedding that Cathy and her team were laughing and rolling their eyes about our wedding to a secondary vendor we used. This secondary vendor was setting up some furniture we rented and was receiving negative comments about her product. This is so unprofessional and disrespectful. The best part about this is that they spent energy making fun of us and then at the end of the night Cathy commented to me that "You made us look good".

Memorable Affairs is deceitful, extremely unprofessional, non responsive, and difficult to work with. As event coordinators - They obviously have trouble dealing with weddings that aren't basic and "Cookie Cutter". If their primary job is to cater your wedding and they cant even do that well - than what is the point of putting up with the rest of their BS? For the amount of money you pay these people you should expect so much more – at least professionalism. I would steer clear of these guys - Im not sure the beautiful castle is worth it.

Cathy and Jack were amazing to work with!! We got married Sept 12, 2015 at Fonthill and it was raining! The staff was unbelievable! We were able to have our ceremony outside and just as it ended the rain started back up. Cocktail hour was then under the tent. Food during cocktail was so good! But, the DJ had a few too many things plugged into one outlet and the power went out. I didn't even notice until my husband told me it was out! Everything was still running flawless! With that said I went to the pavilion and saw staff IN the bushes trying to fix the power! They were soaking wet! It was a quick 10 mins before the issue was resolved and most of my guests hadn't even noticed! Everyone is still telling me how GOOD their food was! They loved the duet entrée and everyone finished their entire plate! At the end of the night we got all the left overs to take home with us! Memorable affairs really made our wedding beautiful and perfect!

Our wedding on Sept. 5, 2015 could not have been more perfect. Jack and Cathy were so amazing to work with and they made the whole planning process super easy. The food was excellent, the staff was excellent and the location (Fonthill Castle) was beautiful. We came with 2 carloads of decorations that they set up for us and as the bride they assigned me my own personal assistant for the day to help me out with whatever I needed. We had such an amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything better.

I can't say enough good things about Jack, Cathy, and the rest of the staff of Memorable Affairs. From the start, we felt very taken care of without feeling rushed or pushed. We were so thrilled we could have our wedding at Mercer Museum and with Memorable Affairs since the museum is meaningful to us and because Memorable Affairs makes having an event really easy.

They have all of the equipment. They cater. They give you lists of preferred vendors. This is not their first rodeo. Since we planned our wedding from Indiana, this was perfect. They told us several times that their goal is for the couple to show up on the day and enjoy the party. They didn't want us worrying about little details or getting distracted from the joy and fun.

From the start, Jack and Cathy answered all of our questions promptly and thoroughly. This care and attention to detail extended into all areas of planning and execution. Our tasting was fun, reserving a sound system for the reception was a snap, and the rehearsal was a breeze. Jack, Cathy, and the rest of the staff had everything in hand.

After our rehearsal, Cathy went through our decorations so she could ensure she and her team would set everything up correctly. I appreciated her patience (and I think she appreciated the lists I'd made detailing each item and where it should go).

The wedding day could not have gone better. The ceremony went smoothly, and during cocktail hour and after dinner, many of our guests approached me to compliment the staff, the location, the food, everything! One staff member--I regret not catching her name--made a point to seek out my husband and me with hors d'oeuvres and beverages to ensure we ate enough and stayed hydrated. She and her team also prepared a huge tray of dinner food to take with us. This was great since I was too excited to eat much.

My husband and I love Memorable Affairs and are so happy with the choice we made. We were able to truly enjoy our wedding thanks to them!

The Memorable Affairs team did such a fabulous job catering and coordinating our wedding. They went above and beyond in carrying out every special request that we had. They held on to every detail and made sure everything was super smooth and calm on our big day. The food was spectacular! The custom cake we ordered from them was incredible! They even made sure to save my husband and I a plate of every hors d'oeuvre while were mingling during cocktail so we were able to enjoy them during the speeches. We would highly recommend them!

Our wedding day was simply stunning! Our guests had a great time. Everyone thought it was beautiful! Pat let me bug her with a million phone calls to finalized details and make sure everything I wanted was included. Fran was amazing and coordinated everything for our day, made sure we stayed on schedule, set up our centerpieces, made sure all our candles were lit, she even decorated our cake with my handmade cake topper and diamond trim accent! She personally served my husband and I hors d'oeuvres while we had photos taken as well as our meals during dinner. We felt like royalty! She was truly fantastic and we can't say enough about how much we appreciated her. Their bartender executed our "Purple Cherry Lime Margarita" signature cocktail perfectly! The food was delicious. The venue and grounds were gorgeous. Memorable affairs was fantastic from the day we viewed the venue throughout our entire experience. We enjoyed every minute of our day!

Our experience at Occasions using Memorable Affairs was wonderful. Cathy was super helpful before the wedding helping us with every detail. She was very accommodating to all of our requests. From the moment we arrived at Occasions Mary, the lead server, was right there getting us a bite to eat and something to drink - even before our wedding was scheduled to start. Mary ensured I had everything I needed and even helped me get in and out of with my dress multiple times throughout the night for bathroom breaks. The ballroom was set up exactly as we envisioned it. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Not a single thing went wrong and everything was on schedule. If I were to host another event, I would want to work with Memorable Affairs again. Side note - We had a photo booth set up in the rear of the ballroom and it was a huge hit!

We would love to thank you Memorable Affairs for making our wedding at Occasions an extraordinary event on October 1, 2011. We are still receiving compliments from our guests! The food, service and location were all exquisite!

Cathy with Memorable Affairs made every bit of planning easy for us. All the preparation was evident on our wedding day. Every last detail was met and executed without flaw. The staff was attentive and kind to our guests, meeting all their needs without being overbearing or intrusive. Their professionalism was without equal. The entire day – from ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and on – flowed without interruption due to their effort and execution.

Memorable Affairs is truly in a league of its own!
