Just amazing

WE CAN’T STOP TALKING ABOUT IT! Donnie is a life saver! Our original wedding venue canceled on us due to fire damage just three months before our wedding date. I called everywhere in a dead panic and thankfully found Donnie! I could not have asked for more professional, understanding, amazing, attentive and supportive people! They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was perfect and provided me support when I was having minor panic attacks. Up to and throughout the evenings end they were there for me. Just amazing. The reception was way more than we could have imagined! The venue was spectacular. The FOOD was absolutely to die for! Everyone wanted to take some home! Which is a rarity at weddings, having excellent food! Everything was perfect. We will visit often! Your staff there was simply the best! Thank you Thank you Thank you! You truly made our day special!

Donnie was amazing planner, caterer, helper, troubleshooter, juggler, sound board  and resource. The food is awesome. We had so many compliments and no one left hungry. The entire team is so completely  "On Top" of it. They executed the night with such professionalism. Donnie made you feel as if he had known you forever and was able to anticipate our every need. They all made it so easy and fun and each one was just as excited at the end of the night as they were at the beginning which shows they love what they do. Thank you so much  for making the night unforgettable. You are rockstars!

We visited with several caterers from the area before the venue we had chosen suggested Fairview Cafe as our caterer. We are not from the area, but my daughter was set on a country wedding. Our planner had worked with others from that area but we decided to do a tasting with Donny first. My daughter, my son in law, the grooms and brides parents as well as Maid of honor, Best man and their spouses were all invited by Donny. We never looked back! We did not consider any other caterer after the tasting. They were wonderful, the food was wonderful - prepared fresh at the tasting. Before the tasting was even over we had ALL agreed these were the right people!

Throughout the process Donny was responsive, thoughtful, helpful, and calming. He assured me multiple times we would not run out of food and the staff would take care of everything. That was all true. Wedding day food was even better than the tasting and no detail was missed. When the bride and groom would not take time to eat, they packed them a picnic for the next day!

I've never planned a wedding before, but I guarantee this would be my choice again in a heartbeat! The best compliment of the evening was when my son in law said to Donny, "If you're available you can cater the rest of our marriage !"
