Kohnen - Hessi Rehearsal Dinner & Wedding Reception City Cottage on Chouteau & La Verona at the Marketplace December 2020

Dear Dana, Greg and I just wanted to say thank you so much for making the Rehearsal Dinner so special for all of our family and friends. You did such a wonderful job with arranging the tables and especially with the flowers. You certainly have many artistic talents! My compliments to the chef. The lemon chicken was so flavorful and the tiramisu was delicious. The staff was very hospitable and so professional. I highly recommend your venue for weddings and rehearsal dinners.

Terriquez - Avila-Ryan Wedding Ceremony & Reception Oliva on the Hill November 2020

Hi Rhonda, I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all you did leading up to our wedding and the day itself to make it such a special day. You helped everything go so smoothly and our reception looked amazing! I am so thankful for all the work you did, especially with all this craziness going on right now. The day was really so much more than I dreamed.

Biggs - Allman Wedding Reception Forest Park Visitor Center October 2020

We worked with Catering St. Louis for our wedding ceremony and day of coordination for the Missouri Botanical Garden – Japanese Garden. We were highly impressed with this vendor throughout all of our planning! We were paired to work with Dana – and she was absolutely wonderful!! Throughout the entire planning and re-planning process due to the pandemic, she was very responsive to all of the questions we had asked, organized in providing contracts and needed paperwork to us in a timely fashion, and ensured our wedding day went as amazing as we had imagined! She was onsite during our entire rehearsal & ceremony and even followed up to offer us a refund due to a malfunction in provided audio equipment during the ceremony, without us having to ask her first. She provided excellent customer service to us and was such a kind person to work with! Thanks for all of your help, Dana!

Arciszewski - Balsman Wedding Ceremony Japanese Garden at Missouri Botanical Garden October 2020

Hello Mr. Erker, my husband and I hosted our daughter’s wedding reception at Forest Park Visitor Center this past Saturday evening and wanted to tell you how very happy we were with the services your company provided. The staff who served us were all very courteous and helpful. The meal was delicious and we received many compliments on it that evening. The venue looked beautiful! The reception area where we had our cocktail hour was very bright and nicely set up. The Trolley Room itself was so classy looking! We chose to have the cross beams draped which your company did beautifully. The tables were set so elegantly and the lighting was perfect. I think our highest praise, though, must go to our event coordinator Alaynne. My husband and I were unable to attend the tasting where our daughter and son-in-law met her for the first time and they loved her from the start. She is very easy to talk to and was willing to make some changes in the menu to accommodate their wishes. They chose to have donuts as their desert and Alaynne arranged to have them displayed beautifully. As the wedding got closer and questions arose, I found Alaynne quick to respond to any messages that I left for her. She was very eager to please and gave us some great suggestions on how to solve some minor problems that arose. She has an incredible attention to detail which came across in how organized she was. Due to some last minute cancellations she was in touch with us right up to the morning of the wedding. She made the changes necessary in the placing of tables that made the room look lovely. She was in touch with the DJ and, along with him, her presence during the event meant that everything flowed perfectly. We were always very confident in Alaynne, but walking in the reception that evening made us happier than we even expected! Thank you for providing us with such wonderful service and for having the Trolley Room set up so beautifully. We will happily recommend Catering St. Louis to anyone we know looking to have a beautiful event.

Dana is amazing! So grateful to work with her.

Schenk - Welker Wedding Ceremony & Reception City Cottage on Chouteau October 2020

Hi Rhonda! We had a great experience. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the venue and the food. Thanks again for helping to make it the enjoyable night we were hoping for. Maybe we’ll see you again sometime at Wine Down Wednesday.

Gilfoil Post Wedding Reception Oliva on the Hill September 2020

The gardens are a beautiful place to have your wedding ceremony. We got married in the Lehmann Rose Garden and it was absolutely beautiful. The winding path up to the ceremony site made for a beautiful entrance for the wedding party and the gazebo was nice for shade during the ceremony service. Our wedding coordinator was very organized and helped make our wedding go off without a hitch. They were also very flexible for rescheduling our wedding due to the COVID-19 situation. The garden’s speaker system was also nice and guests were able to hear our vows clearly. The gardens make for beautiful photos if you catch a nice day, like we were lucky enough to!

Boland - Rodino Wedding Ceremony Lehmann Rose Garden at Missouri Botanical Garden September 2020

Hi Rhonda, I wanted to take a moment and tell you thank you so much for helping make the rehearsal dinner such a perfect evening. The food was great and guiding us to go the route of buffet/cocktail was truly the best option for that night. You were easy to work with, and the staff that night were great! We would not hesitate to recommend you and Catering St. Louis to others.

Scott Rehearsal Dinner Spink Pavilion at Missouri Botanical Garden September 2020

Dear Catering St. Louis, our overall experience was amazing! The kindness and consideration of Tina, Janet, and Bailey was felt by us all. I arrived to your venue a bit early to find everything set up exactly as we had asked. Phillip and Hannah were attended to from the minute they said “I do,” to when they hit the dance floor for the evening. The delicious food was enjoyed by all, and finally when the fun was over and we went to collect our decor and belongings, we were surprised and pleased to find everything packed up and boxed up, ready to put in our car. The perfect end to a wonderful day! Thank you again for making our wedding absolutely perfect!

Prehn Rehearsal Dinner City Cottage on Chouteau August 2020

The entire event was fabulous! Carleen was a wonderful hostess! Eddie was amazing as well! We had so many compliments about the food and the dining room and bar areas.

Cardona Rehearsal Dinner Oliva on the Hill August 2020

Oliva on the Hill was the perfect wedding reception venue! Boy did they deliver – from the food, to the coordination, to the details and decorations – it was all perfect! The venue itself is so impressive and beautiful – a little Tuscan oasis with indoor and outdoor seating and bars. We had the best time and would recommend this venue for ANY event!

Petrovich - Fruend Wedding Reception Oliva on the Hill August 2020

I just wanted to thank you for helping us celebrate Stephanie and Dan’s wedding. The loft was the perfect place to get ready with hair and makeup, family and friends. The Lofts are a hidden treasure! We will definitely let our out of town guests know about them!

Patton - Griffith Oliva Lofts Stay Oliva on the Hill July 2020

Perfection – a 10! Rhonda was able to transform our September wedding with 200 guests to a July wedding with 12 guests without hesitation and GRACE. Every bride should have a “Rhonda” – especially during a pandemic! Thank you Rhonda, you gave us the “perfect day!”

Patton - Griffith Wedding Ceremony & Reception Oliva on the Hill July 2020

We had our wedding ceremony at the Japanese Garden and it was absolutely beautiful. The Japanese Garden photographed like a dream in our wedding photos. It was beyond our expectations and everyone commented on how amazing it was. Dana was our wedding ceremony coordinator and she was great. She made everything flow with ease and was very kind. I would highly recommend to work with Dana from Catering St. Louis.

Hsu - Pan Wedding Ceremony Japanese Garden at Missouri Botanical Garden July 2020

To all of the future bride and grooms out there, Catering STL is the best way to go! We especially want to thank Rhonda. She was optimistic, calm, and knew our special day would be absolutely perfect. We were the lucky ones to work with her. I was a bride that had to reschedule my wedding 3 different times during COVID-19 and they were accommodating, flexible, extremely helpful, and they felt like family. My husband and and I had a wonderful team to work with us and we would not have gone with anyone else. I would 200% recommend them for your wedding!!! Thank you all for your help, means the world to us!!!

Rankin - Logaglio Wedding Ceremony & Reception Oliva on the Hill June 2020

Sandy, thank you for coordinating such a wonderful night. We have received so many compliments about the catering service and food. Cannot express how grateful we are! It was flawless.

McGhee - Fitch Wedding Ceremony & Reception Old Barn Inn at St. Albans June 2020

We had a lovely and fun wedding rehearsal at Oliva last week. They worked with us on providing a “safe” environment with flexible seating options for social distancing, and modified our original plan to serve family-style with a buffet where they served us (so multiple people did not touch the utensils). The atmosphere was perfect with the glow of candles all around – the courtyard for the cocktail hour was beautiful and very pleasant in spite of warm temperatures. The servers were very attentive and the food was scrumptious! The cappuccino crème brûlée is a must!

Bagwell Rehearsal Dinner Oliva on the Hill June 2020

Rhonda, just to thank you for managing the wedding so well. Everyone loved the ambience, the food, the outside dancing. A terrific night helped by the weather turning ok. The reception setting was stunning. The flowers and runners and candles really made a huge difference. Every table was full and people could talk and were very comfortable. Everyone had a great time.
