I want to start off by saying that the food at Tuxedo caterers is delicious, however I don't know where to start with all of the things I was disappointed in. Tuxedo supplied my cake - which was LEANING to the side, we eventually had to cut the cake just so it didn't end up on the floor. She offers the cake "complimentary" as a thank you for having a certain number of guests - and my thank you was NOTHING like I asked. You don't get to taste the cake before hand because she uses "a great baker with one recipe." I bought and supplied all of the ribbon to be used on the cake, gave her a picture of what I wanted (every other tier was square instead of round) - SIMPLE and I could have made it myself (I'm no baker.) The bartender and waitstaff were so rude. Every guest I talked to complained that the bartender was giving them serious attitude, he even said to my husband "what do you want? if you don't tell me what you want get out of the way (line.)" I'm sorry but that's no way to talk to someone - especially the GROOM. Other guests complained that the buffet service wouldn't give them more portions of food when they asked, and we came home with TRAYS full of food - so clearly there was enough to offer seconds to people who wanted it. But my "favorite" part of the day was the fact that I bought champagne for a toast, and NO table was given champagne until after we mentioned it, after the toasts were given. Jewel was a nice person, a little unorganized and made minor promises that weren't kept but the THREE biggest things can't be changed. I didn't let it ruin my day, but ultimately you don't get a do-over so now I have pictures to last a lifetime of a leaning cake, no champagne for my toast (made with water glasses) and attitudes from people you least expected.

Jewel did an amazing job with the decorations and catering for our wedding in November 2013. Every event she handles is different (definitely not cookie-cutter) and she adds many unique touches. She is extremely creative and you get a lot more than you would expect from her prices! At times she came off as disorganized, but in the end we got everything we wanted and more. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Dear Jewel & Staff,

The success of our wedding day was extraordinaire. We got nothing but positive feedback from our guests on the food, which was phenomenal and they are still raving about how amazing it was. The lovely table arrangements and the overall elegant flair were exceptional!

I was ever so delighted with how well the exquisite Eggplant Linens complimented our dresses and your special touches to customize our affair. You and your staff did such a wonderful job at making our big day perfect, they were attentive to our every need. I would highly recommend Tuxedo Caterers without a moment’s hesitation.

Thank you for being a part in making our wedding day perfect!

Jewell Mann Lassiter her and team, provided my husband and myself with the wedding of our dreams. Not only was her staff extremely professional, they were attentive to our needs and our guest needs as well. The decor fit our taste and style perfectly. With everything that I had to worry about in terms of a wedding check list, Jewell put my mind at ease with her experience and style. I fully trusted her vision and expertise.

My wedding was everything that I dream of and thanks to Ms.Jewel team. The food was amazing with every bit you put in your mouth. We decide to go with station and this gave our guest a choice from many selection. We do not eat pork and we had cows in a blanket instead of pigs in a blanket and I just though that was so cute for them to give that name lol. Ms. Jewel is very pleasant, polite and very detail business woman. She will get the job done. she work with my husband and I with everything. I must say she hook us up. Thanks Ms. Jewel and team.

Dear Jewel,

I just wanted to express my deepest gratitude to you and the staff of Tuxedo Catering throughout the entire planning process leading up to Sienna and Jerry's wedding.

It's hard to believe that almost five months have passed since that anointed day, and the memory still makes my heart swell with emotion. The married folks are doing well and Zion is growing by leaps and bounds. It's so funny when we talk about the wedding, she interjects that she got married too.

Your concern, flexibility, patience, spirit of excellence, professionalism, class and most importantly your comforting smile throughout the meetings, menus, site-visits, budget constraints and surprises was far beyond our expectations. Having overseen professional events at the University of Pennsylvania for many years, I know first hand the Tuxedo Catering went far beyond the norm when it comes to event production. When we share the pictures and the video it appears as if we were transported to a European Palace or Heaven. Your menu variety allowed us to have a wonderful selection of foods that worked
within our budget, the presentation was splendid and the cake; Fabulous. Our Guest are still talking about how they felt love when they walked in the door and that something changed in their life, my prayers answered.

On a personal note, being the best Mother of the Bride and praying that you get it right, is a lot of pressure. Especially knowing you most likely will only have one shot per daughter at it. This accompanied with the fact that as a single parent it can be really difficult letting someone else in the "What's best for your children" drivers seat. Jewel, words limit me in expressing how much it meant to me to be able let go and trust you with Sienna's and Jerry's dream & vision and for that I am forever grateful.

Look forward to the opportunity to work with you again. I wish you and Tuxedo Caterers the blessed and prosper.
