Testimonials

Kim:
I wanted to reiterate how wonderful you made our event. We had a lot riding on the evening, and I can't say enough good things about how well everything went. How you managed to serve 600 people perfectly cooked steak that remained warm to the very last person served is a wonder to me. All of the food was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. Importantly, your staff was warm, responsive, efficient, and welcoming. Net, this was a home run, and I am most appreciative.

But it's not my word alone that is speaking up. I have been on the gala circuit since our event, and I can tell you that the whole town has been talking about two things--how fabulous our park is and how fabulous our gala was. Many people who were there have spoken up, but it's the people who weren't there that I listen to as well, because they have heard from those who attended how great everything was ("especially the food!") and so it's not people being polite to me but people spreading good words to others.

So....thank you so much for taking on this herculean task and executing it so perfectly.

Best Regards,
Arty

Dear Kim,
Thank you for an absolutely amazing wedding!!! Your food and service made the night magical. I am also extremely grateful to the quality of your employees, they were marvelous. I can't say enough about Brenda and the excellent care she took of each of us. She is so competent at keeping everything flowing smoothly and directing the activities.

I knew I would be in excellent hands with you as our caterer (and so much more). I was able to thoroughly enjoy myself and be carefree because of you.

Your food is continuing to receive rave reviews. My father couldn't stop talking about how impressed he was with the food. He has attended many luxurious events and his compliment a true testament to your culinary skills.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Love,
Cathy

Dearest, dearest Kim,
There are no words to fully encompass our thanks to you and your staff! The weekend and especially Saturday were perfect. As always, the food was amazing. We loved having left-overs on Sunday and Eric still talks of your mac & cheese.

Thank you for helping us make our weekend unforgettable!
Much love,
Kiara & Eric

Dear Kim, Brenda, Marlana, Danielle and crew,
I think of all of you so often when I think about my wedding day. Every little girl dreams of her wedding, and I could not have dreamt for, or asked for more.

All of you turned one of the most special days of my life into an incredible event I (and so many others), will always remember. In fact, our guests are still talking about the filet mignon!!! But it was more than the unbelievable food - it was the level of professionalism, courtesy and machine-like efficiency that every person who was part of the event displayed. It was also the fun, unique spirit that you brought to the museum.

On a wedding day, there are so many things to worry about, but I kept telling myself that as long as I make it to the reception, I'll be OK. I knew that everything was going to be taken care of, and I could relax and enjoy. When I was looking for people who shared my vision for a celebration that would reflect Joe and my personality, you not only shared in our vision, you enhanced it, and made it more than we could have wished for.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Joey and I will forever reflect on a perfect ceremony and a perfect reception, and it never would have been that way without you.
Love,
Kristen and Joe M.

Dear Kim,
Words cannot even begin to describe how thankful I am to have had you as the designer of my bat mitzvah, you made the room come to life! The whole day (from the service to the party) was just non-stop magic! It was so incredible, I felt like I was in a dream, I was up in the clouds! The moment I stepped into the ballroom, tears of excitement and happiness swelled up in my eyes. You have an amazing talent, you can light up the room, you made my night perfect! You made the day so unbelievable that people still talk about it now!
I am so grateful that you were a part of my bat mitzvah experience. Just a "thank you" isn't good enough for you! (But I'll say it anyway!)
THANK YOU KIM! I LOVE YOU!!
Thanks SO much!
Keep in touch!
Always,
Nikki H.

Kim and Brenda,
What a fantastic evening we had thanks to your creativity and attention to detail. The roast was a smashing success. The food delicious, the flowers and decorations just right. And the job you did the next day at the wedding with the flowers was fabulous. The palette of the flowers with the garnet bridesmaid dresses, jewel colored shawls and autumn backdrops was really beautiful.
I knew right from the first moment we were on the "same page," and you were uniquely able to satisfy the needs of both the bride and grooms families. What an accomplishment! The food, flowers and service could not have been better.
Thanks so much,
Ruth E.

Dear Kim,
The distant sound of laughter can still be heard in the Hyde House Courtyard, reminiscent of our recent Saturday evening's April in Paris fundraising gala.
The event is not only being talked about as the most enjoyable gala at The Hyde to-date, but also was a financial success.
Very truly yours,
Linda S.
Special Events Coordinator, The Hyde Collection Art Museum

Dear Kim,
Many, many thanks to you and your staff for providing us a truly magical rehearsal dinner! We still have images and tastes of your work floating in our memory: the beautiful cucumber salmon, the oh-so decadent chocolate brownies, the to-die-for olive tapanade - we could go on and on.
Your commitment to excellence was truly impressive and many of our guests noted it.
Thank you for your creativity in planning our menu. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Fondly,
Kristen and Matt
