Quality of Service
We had a small wedding in the Italian Rose Garden at Maudslay Park in Newburyport and had our reception at 10 Center Restaurant. Bethany Scalise at 10 Center coordinated the event and she did an incredible job. Both my husband and I met with many different events coordinators at many different sites (we considered a large wedding so we looked at both large and small venues) and, by far, she was the best person. Part of our reason for selecting 10 Center was because she was a sheer delight. She provided us with expert advice and suggested many great ideas for our reception that our guests truly enjoyed. Her demeanor was always professional, yet friendly and welcoming, and was consistently 'on top' of all aspects of the reception. The cocktail hour was held outside on their deck and the reception was in the event room on the second floor. Bethany and the staff at 10 Center did an amazing job transforming the deck and the events room in to a festive and glowing sanctuary that took everyone's breath away the first time they laid eyes on their work. What I had in my mind's eye was not even a fraction of what they put together. For our cocktail hour, Bethany recommended a sangria bar and what a huge hit it was! We had a series of passed hor'dourves and stationary foods and everyone *loved* the food. The cocktail food was the perfect prelude to a gourmand's delight of a dinner. The salad, soup, and entree (a choice of 4) courses were beautifully executed and perfect to the palate. I can not imagine how challenging it must be to serve plated out dinners for such a large number and have each dish come out hot; that being said, 10 Center met and beat that challenge. The wedding was several months ago and people are still talking about how delicious the food was. The chef and his staff did an incredible job in preparing such wonderful food. We had live music during the reception and an impromptu dance floor was made in the events room for people to dance. We had not originally planned on anything like this and had not discussed it with Bethany in our meetings, but she was perfectly flexible with it all and handled our noisy bunch with perfect grace and encouraged us to enjoy our evening. Overall, Bethany and the entire staff executed a truly exemplary performance in staging our reception. We are very grateful to them for starting our married life off on an impeccable high note and we hope to one day recreate the night in the form of anniversary party. Many thank yous to Bethany and the staff of 10 Center for all of their hard work and effort.
