One Word about The Abbey Catering & Event Design: FANTASTIC. We also used them for a complete all inclusive wedding package and I truly could not have done it any other way. Petr, our coordinator went above and beyond to make sure we were so taken care of through the entire planning process. We used DJ and he was great. Elegant Events did our flowers and they were nothing short of breathtaking. Deb was our photographer and our pictures are beyond beautiful!!! Seriously, this was such a great deal for us as we saved time, money and so much of the typical stress that goes along with planning such a huge event. We used the money we saved and went to Japan! Great Job Abbey Catering!
My daughter just got married at The Soledad Club in San Diego. The Abbey Catering provided us with a complete package including outstanding food & service, day of wedding coordination, bountiful florals, videographer (Tarek), photographer (Deb), DJ (Randy), scrumptious and beautiful cake (Baby Cakes) and a limousine (Escalade) that was over 40 ft! Everything from start to finish has been nothing short of outstanding. I was especially impressed with the cost! We saved over $10,000 with their all inclusive deal. I can't recommend them enough. Every vendor on their team surprised and delighted us all with their professionalism and work! Great Job Abbey Catering!
I also thoroughly enjoyed the food tastings prior to the wedding and before we signed the contract. Those were great experiences and gave us an idea of what we could expect at the actual event. I liked being able to tweak the menu and give input that was actually listened to. Zapher is an amazing chef, but more than that he’s a great listener and puts the client first. I can tell he wants to give his clients the best possible event and he works hard to do just that. It was such a privilege to work with such an amazing staff. I’m so impressed that The Abbey was able to address our multicultural menu so effectively.
Court and I would like to say 'thank you' to The Abbey Catering for doing an out-standing job with our wedding!! Everything was spectacular and beyond our wildest dreams. That day was like a fairy tale with all the great decorations, food, and dedicated staff. I am so happy that the whole enchanted forest /fall theme/ secret garden vision came to life. So many of our guests told us "it was the best wedding they have ever been to" or "the decorations were the best we've seen". Court and I wish we could relive that day every year for the rest of our lives. Thanks again for all your hard work.
