Rhonda, I want to thank you and your staff for an absolutely perfect rehearsal dinner. So many of our guests complimented the venue, the food and the service. The evening surpassed my expectations. Thank you for all that you did on Mick and Megan's behalf, it was an absolutely perfect evening.

Guletz Rehearsal Dinner

Oliva on the Hill

Alaynne, the rehearsal dinner was fantastic. We received so many compliments on the food; the set-up was great, and it was even more than we had envisioned! It fit our family very well with a relaxed atmosphere and casual conversations in a gorgeous outdoor setting. I couldn't have asked to work with a better event coordinator. You truly made it very easy on our part, and you and Pam were a delight to meet the night of the rehearsal and it looked just beautiful... with new table runners that matched our little gift. I very much enjoyed our time planning this event and hope too, that our paths cross again! Thank you Alaynne, and I hope your summer goes well. I know this is such a busy time for you. Take care.

Sloan Rehearsal Dinner

Hi Alaynne, I owe you a gigantic thank you note. Our wedding was perfect. So perfect that I continue to tear up when I think of it. Everything that Catering St. Louis did was amazing. From the decoration, to the service, to the amazing food...I am so lucky that I got to have my wedding there. Special thank you for the bustle situation..I didn't realize you would be a jack of all trades but was so lucky and grateful for that as well! I think we might still have a couple of weeks for pictures but I promise to send those along once we get them in. I am going to try to think of an excuse to hold another event at the Visitor's center (or another Catering St. Louis venue) but I promise you that I will hands down recommend you to anyone I come across. I hope you have a good rest of the summer and thanks again for everything!

(note from bride)

Alaynne and her team were hands down the most integral part of making our wedding day a success! The venue was perfect, the food was amazing, and everything was easy and stress free along the way. I wish we could recreate the whole thing! I would 100% recommend this company and Alaynne to anyone!

I know that all "excellent" ratings don't help you to improve, per se, but our experience was absolutely phenomenal.

Hi Kathy, just wanted to take a minute and thank you for everything last Friday night. The rehearsal dinner couldn't have gone better. The venue looked absolutely beautiful and the food was delicious. Everything was so warm and inviting, even on a bitterly cold night!! Our guests enjoyed themselves so much. I can't tell you how many people talked to us about Oliva being such a fantastic venue and how wonderful the food was. But most importantly, Justin and Paige were thrilled. It was exactly what they wanted. They said it was the best rehearsal dinner they had ever been to and not just because it was theirs. I wanted to thank you personally for all you did. You were so helpful from our very first meeting. You made the whole experience so easy and non-stressful. Thank you again!! It was a pleasure working with you.

Krueger - Rudelic Wedding Reception

Missouri Botanical Garden - Monsanto Hall

November 2016

 

I wanted to take a moment to let you know how impressed and satisfied I was with your facility on the night of my son's rehearsal dinner. I called on three separate occasions during the week leading up to our dinner, and Joanna was so helpful and never seemed frustrated with my concerns or questions; she took care of everything perfectly. The venue itself was wonderful, the ambiance was spectacular, and the fire pit was a huge hit. The evening was a bit chilly, and your staff went above and beyond to keep our guests comfortable; they went as far as fixing a broken heater, and the bartender even gave the bride her sweater because she was cold! The food was amazing! Everyone continues to rave about how delicious everything was. Your staff was nothing less than exceptional! They made sure every detail was perfect. We would recommend the Boathouse to anyone.

As you know, its been a crazy year for Tom and I, and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to help us in the planning process. There was moment during in between speeches when I looked out around the room and thought “this is more beautiful than I ever could have imagined.” Tom and I spent the whole honeymoon reminiscing on what a fun party it was.

We had our wedding reception at Oliva on 10/22 and I could not have pictured anything better. The venue is so intimate and beautiful and the staff worked hard to make sure everyone was comfortable and having a great time.

Oliva on the Hill

October 2016

 

Catering St. Louis made sure our reception was absolutely perfect - I was so impressed. Joanna was our planner and she took care of every detail, as well as patiently answering all my questions prior to the event. She coordinated everything with vendors ahead of time to make sure all went smoothly the day of. She set up all my personal decorations just the way I wanted and accommodated all special requests like dietary restrictions, etc. even when I hadn't covered everything ahead of time. She even helped bustle my dress when my mom and I couldn't figure it out :) The care and attention was amazing. The food was great as well! Everyone said it was absolutely delicious, so many compliments. Would definitely recommend working with them and their lovely venues!

We had our reception in Monsanto Hall at the garden. Although we only had 90 people, it was the perfect setting - not too big or too small and all the servers remarked how intimate and beautiful of a dinner it was. The terrace outside was great for cocktail hour, especially with the fountain in the background. Plenty of room for dancing. Would highly recommend.

Hi Rhonda, everything was perfect. Between you and the florist, the DJ, the venue, the cake. If I had one compliment, I got 50. Only one problem.

Hi Rhonda, I appreciate all of your kind words, as a matter of fact, I have been meaning to touch base with you this week as well to let you know how wonderful your staff was at the Trolley Room. I can't say enough about how accommodating everyone was to us and helpful to get everything taken down and packed up to get us out of there after the event. The food was delicious and our guests raved about it all evening. As a matter of fact, Doug and I were hoping to get the recipe for the quiche.....it was such a hit with the crowd.

Renken - Stauffer Wedding Reception

Old Barn Inn St. Albans

September 2016

 

There are no words to convey our happiness and appreciation for our experience with Catering St. Louis and the beautiful results of our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception. The venue was absolutely beautiful and perfectly met our needs. It looked right off our daughter’s Pinterest pages, only better because it was uniquely hers. The food was delicious with plenty for everyone and beautifully presented. The seating I had fretted over worked perfectly. Your staff was amazing, so friendly and on top of everything. We worked the bartenders hard but they were always friendly and courteous. The valet parking immediately calmed my concerns about the parking and convenience for our guests, they were friendly and seemed to be ever present. Kelly, our captain for the evening was also ever present and right on top of everything, so kind. I especially thank Kathy our wedding planner for her knowledge, her patience, her calm demeanor, her accessibility, and her leadership. She always responded in a timely fashion to our emails, she tolerated our sometimes lack of communication with each other, and was open to all of our requests and ideas, and so much more. In the end, our daughter and son-in-law enjoyed their dream wedding day and I was able to relax and enjoy the day. For that I am truly grateful. I wrote the above letter on the Monday after the wedding to Kathy our wedding planner and am happy to share it with others. Our relationship with Catering St. Louis was great from beginning to end. From our experience I would highly recommend Catering St. Louis and Soulard Preservation Hall for any special event.

Carleen, I am writing to thank you, Mark, and Jennifer for all you did to make my daughter's wedding weekend absolutely fabulous! As you know from emails a week or so ago, I was a bit nervous about the weather and seriously concerned that we weren't going to get everything done. The weather couldn't have been better and all of you made sure that we had zero issues. It was such a relief to not have to worry about ANYTHING! I am so glad that we chose your company to handle both the wedding and the rehearsal dinner, as it made everything seamless. You are the best.

Garcia - Thompson Wedding Reception

City Cottage on Chouteau

September 2016

 

Hi Peggy: I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with all your hard work to have such a smooth and worry-free rehearsal dinner at the Whittemore House on Aug. 11th. You really did an outstanding job with the set up and arrangement of the seating chart, the placement of the place cards on the tables, and more importantly – keeping my son, the future groom, calm. I’m so happy I became a member of the Whittemore House. After all the years of organizing our annual physicians’ dinner parties there, and hearing about the ambiance of the house and how excellent the food is, it was a no-brainer. This was an excellent choice for the size of our rehearsal dinner. I had a few people ask me if they could become members even though they weren’t WU alumni or employees. The food was delicious and Chef Grace did a wonderful job preparing the dishes. Everything went off without a hitch, thanks to you. The wedding party loved the backyard and took a lot of pictures of the house. I could not have asked for a better venue. Everyone did a fabulous job that night. I had so many compliments about the food and the house. I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did for us.

Hi Joanna, Dave and I wanted to thank you and the entire staff that made our rehearsal dinner so perfect last Thursday evening. The entire staff could not do enough to assist us with set up and packing up at the end, and making sure the guests had everything that they needed. The food was excellent, from start to finish. Our evening coordinator was so wonderful and it was so much fun to work with her again. The venue was of course beautiful. Loved the way you set up the outside. Special thanks to the young man who braved the heat to man the bar outside, while smiling. It was also so wonderful to have the AV person right there when I arrived to help with the slide show and the music. I truly appreciate it. We will treasure our memory of the evening.

Well hello! I just want to thank you again for EVERYTHING! The smoothest part of my day was when you were there taking charge. I only wish I could have had you as my planner the entire day with me! It is an understatement to say that you were exceptional. I don’t know what I would have done without you. You are fantastic at what you do, and Spencer and I will never forget how big of an asset you were to us throughout the last 6 months. I can’t believe it’s already over!

(note from bride)

Catering St. Louis is FANTASTIC. We went through them for our rehearsal and reception, which ended up being the best choice ever. Our planner was Rhonda, and she is amazing! They are super organized and efficient. The food was great, and everyone was obsessed with both our venues. Our rehearsal dinner was at City Cottage on Chouteau, and our reception was at Missouri Botanical Garden in the Monsanto Hall. I don't have a single negative thing to say about all of it. I could not have done it without Rhonda and her entire team. Best day of my life!!

My husband and I used Catering St. Louis for our rehearsal dinner at the Botanical Garden and wedding reception at the Forest Park Visitor Center. We were SO lucky to have Alaynne Allen as our planner! We can’t thank her enough for all her hard work in creating the wedding of our dreams. It wasn’t easy planning a wedding from out of town, but she made us feel comfortable and confident that everything was going to be perfect. She saw our vision and made it better than we had even thought possible. We will never forget walking up to the venue and feeling so overwhelmed by how beautiful it looked! The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the night flowed so smoothly. Catering STL is very professional and will make sure your event is seamless. We loved working with Alaynne, and she and Catering STL have our highest recommendation!

April 2017

 

Our experience was wonderful; everyone we worked with (Katie, Carleen, the event staff) was amazing. The little touches (matching linens to our logo and boxing up remaining food for our staff) made such a big difference. Our guests raved about the event, and we are looking at other events to host at the Garden and with Catering St. Louis. Thank you!

Being that it was my 1st time planning this event I must say Rhonda made this absolutely painless. She walked me through step by step, gave creative, insightful suggestions, and was patient and flexible allowing me time to navigate this new responsibility. I will recommend Catering St. Louis and Rhonda not only for work related events but to friends and family.
