Testimonials

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Hidden gem on The Hill in St. Louis! I truly believe it was fate that brought my husband and I to have our wedding ceremony at Oliva on The Hill and our reception at La Verona at the Marketplace on 8.28.21! I have received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was, in fact it has so much to offer you can spend less money on flowers and decorations. The service during the seated dinner was outstanding! Planning a wedding is so stressful, however, you are provided a venue wedding coordinator to help ensure a smooth process at the venue. I keep hearing “It was the best wedding I’ve ever been to.” I could not be happier!

Bodenschatz Rehearsal Dinner City Cottage on Chouteau July 2021

We couldn’t have asked for a better venue – the weather was perfect. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the Garden. We had children there and it was a perfect place for them too. With the covid we had to change 3 times and Tina was great at handling the changes. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. Everything was top notch!

We were so excited to host the Rehearsal dinner for my son and his fiancé at the beautiful Oliva last week! Guests were overwhelmed by the fabulous culinary experience, luscious vine covered outdoor cocktail garden and over all welcoming ambiance of our very own private event space unlike any other in the City! The compliments never stopped and we were over the top pleased with the entire experience. Grazie Oliva!

Allman Rehearsal Dinner City Cottage on Chouteau 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.
