Dear Carleen, my name is Joy, and I met you briefly last Saturday morning as you were replacing a lightbulb in the Oliva Loft when my daughter was getting ready for her wedding ceremony. I just felt compelled to compliment you on every element of my daughter’s wedding from the Loft itself, to the ceremony at Oliva, to La Verona, to Catering St. Louis to your amazing staff. I am not exactly sure what I expected – but we are all so thrilled and overjoyed with every part of the wedding day. The Loft was roomy and clean and inviting, the ceremony was gorgeous (the weather perfect!), La Verona was set up beautifully and we loved the outside space with the fire pits, and the food was delicious and prepared and laid out beautifully. And your staff was excellent. Rhonda was superb and caring. Everyone, from the bartender to the wait staff was pleasant and friendly and efficient and kind. I can’t say enough. And, the fact that YOU came to change the lightbulb? Well, that was just as impressive. So, thank you for making this one of the best days of my (not to mention my daughter and her husband’s) life. Possibly THE best.

Ryan Rehearsal Dinner Oliva on the Hill July 2022

I had our son’s rehearsal dinner on 6/10/22 at the Spink Pavilion at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Tina Opdenbrouw was our event planner. I could not have asked for a better experience. The food was amazing, the staff the night of the event were amazing, and the planning part with Tina was stellar! I wish I could post my professional pictures but cannot at this time. Hope to post later. The wedding was 6/11/22. Wedding guests that were not invited heard how wonderful our rehearsal dinner turned out and wanted to know why they were not invited. Without the help of this great staff I could not have done this and made such wonderful family memories. This night was worth every penny I paid for 60 guests.

We were able to have a beautiful wedding with professionals that really listened to us and our needs. Communication with them was easy and our venue (Oliva on the Hill) was spectacular and every guest was in awe of the setting. I would (and have) recommended this venue to everyone!

Lehman - Silvermintz Wedding Ceremony & Reception Oliva on the Hill October 2021

Hi Sandy, we’ve been recovering from the wedding and entertaining guests but I wanted to thank you for all you did to make the wedding reception come together so well. The food was wonderful and the catering staff did a very professional job. I know the buffet was more challenging and also having the ceremony in the same space as the reception gave less time to get everything together. We couldn’t have been happier with the results so thank you for all the accommodations you made for us. You have a stressful job!

We wish you nothing but the best in this new year!
