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.

Overall, a stress-free experience the day of the wedding. I used The Abbey and worked out an all inclusive package (catering, photography, videography, rentals, coordination) which saved us a lot of time, planning, worry, and money. Photography by Deb Shields was amazing. The Abbey maintains a good network of vendors with which to partner for package deals. Check them out. They'll win you over at the tasting, make you want more with their accommodating pricing, and be friends for life after the wedding day.
Holy cow, The Abbey saved the day. They were great from beginning to end. We originally were working with a different caterer, had done the tasting and all that jazz. The food was good, but I wasn't "wowed" by it. So, about 6-8 weeks before the wedding we decided to change our idea all together. Our first caterer wasn't really responsive to it and we waited a week or so to hear back from them. My sister decided to call Abbey Catering with our idea of having a brunch for dinner and within one week we have a proposal, several revisions, and a final menu. The price was great, the people were fantastic and they were very professional. They are very familiar with the Bernardo Winery and it showed. They also provided great brunch food... waffles, omelet station, carved steak sandwiches, OJ, coffee, fruit, etc. Everyone raved about the idea of brunch and they made it happen with the quality. Thanks so much!
When I first contacted The Abbey, I thought all the services you offered seemed too good to be true. In reality, you went well above and beyond what was promised, and you are the reason my friends and family are still raving about our perfect wedding! Finding you was like winning the Lottery! When we purchased our complete wedding package from you, I didn't fully realize the exceptional value of the services we were getting. Not only was the food absolutely to die for, but each and every vendor you helped us choose far exceeded all of our exceptions. A man is measured by the company he keeps, and you certainly keep the company of some quality people. DJ Neko had the party rocking from the start, and even the "old folks" were happy with his tasteful music choices! Flour Power's cake caused a big uproar, because it was so tasty that everybody tried t scramble to get seconds! I'll be back to James and Flour Power for my mom's birthday cake later this month. When I contacted you on the 8th of January for a February 25th wedding, you weren't even fazed. You took the burden of planning an entire wedding in just 45 days off my shoulders and placed it on your own, giving me the opportunity to concentrate on my dress, the guest list, and the other time consuming and stressful details. From the moment I emailed you at The Abbey, all my worries were over. We can't wait to have another occasion to use The Abbey's excellent services again!
