Daniel and I can't thank you and your staff enough for catering our October 20th wedding. Everything was absolutely wonderful. We still receive compliments from our guests regarding how delicious and perfectly prepared the food was. Especially the salmon, which from what I understand is not an easy feat. You, Amy and the entire staff were so helpful, cheerful and a complete pleasure to work with. You really helped put our mind at ease walking us through the setup, and alternative plan in case of bad weather, you truly went over and above on what we expected. We were on a budget, and you worked with us to stay in our budget and were very reasonably priced.
Catered Affairs of Key West by far exceeded every expectation we had, and for that we thank you!
We'll definitely use you again for our 5 year vow renewal.
Amy and Daniel
There are really no words to describe how grateful we are to have found Catered Affairs of Key West! Bill, Lloyd, and Lizzie were outstanding people to work with. They gave us everything that we wanted and more for our wedding weekend! They really got to know my new Husband and I as people and got to know our families in order to really make this a special and unique day for us.
Catered Affairs made the food for my rehearsal dinner. When I first gave Lizzie the idea for a barbeque around the pool I really had no idea what kind of food I wanted. Lloyd and Bill created an amazing menu based on a few ideas that I gave them. They made an amazing upscale barbeque dinner for us for the night before the wedding at our hotel! It was an amazing, laid back evening that was just a perfect way to start the wedding festivities.
As a Bride you dream about your wedding day, you want everything to be perfect, you over analyze about every small detail and how you are going to make those details a reality. The whole planning process is very over whelming and you do not know where to start. When I first spoke to Lizzie on the phone I was very pleased with her ideas, her professionalism, and the feeling that I got when speaking to her. She made me feel so comfortable, so important, and she reassured me that anything I wanted she would make it happen one way or another. The important part is not that she not only promised me all the things that I wanted but that Bill, Lloyd and Lizzie delivered on all of these promises above and beyond!
The best part of their company was that I dealt with Lizzie for everything. We spoke several times a week for months planning and making decisions and then she made it all a reality. She helped me choose and florist and went to the meeting with me and helped me make decisions. She set me up with a fantastic steel drum player for my ceremony who put tears in the eyes of my family members by the touching songs that he played. My wonderful DJ was also arranged and confirmed for me as well. Catered Affairs took the stress away from me and took care of everything from my music to the flowers, to the linen and table settings.
Lloyd and Bill were fantastic as well; they had an amazing staff and amazing food that my guests are still talking about. It rained the entire day of my wedding, every bride’s worst nightmare when you have an outdoor venue planned. Lizzie and Bill were in touch with me all day, watching the weather and reassuring me that we would figure out a plan B if we had to. They offered me to use the restaurant La Trattoria, in a last, worst case scenario if it didn’t stop raining. The fact that they were willing to offer for us to use the restaurant is an amazing gesture as they were open for business that night and it would greatly have affected the restaurant. I would not have expected that as an option. It just goes to show that these are all amazing people who really did go above and beyond for us on our wedding day! Fortunately the rain let up later in the evening and we only had to postpone things slightly. It is still amazing to me that they were able to set everything up in time. They went from have the whole afternoon to get things ready to less than an hour after the rain stopped to clean up the water and be ready to serve. I commend their team on all that they did and I cannot thank them enough! I know that it was stressful to them but it all looked so seamless to my family and my guests!
A memory that I will not forget was being so rushed to get things started after the rain stopped that my wedding party and I hadn’t eaten anything since breakfast and we were starving, when we pulled up to the Audubon House we were off to the side and I saw Lloyd and he asked how we were holding up, we all said we were starving and couldn’t wait to eat. He instantly came running over to the three of us with some chicken skewers to hold us over through the ceremony. Now that is Chef service at its finest if you ask me!
Catered Affairs is truly an amazing company to work with, I cannot imagine how I would have done anything differently. Their prices are fair, the food is amazing and the staff is just over the top!
Lizzie, Bill and Lloyd sincerely from the bottom of my heart and I cannot thank you all enough for all that you did for us! You will all forever be a wonderful memory from my wedding day!
Thank you so much! You guys were fantastic! I only ate a few bites at the wedding, but what I had was amazing and we received so many compliments on the food. I only wish the food that was packed up for us made it to our room. Unfortunately Matt's dad left it with the front desk at our hotel, but they never contacted us to let us know. It's ok, though- all the more reason to have dinner at La Trattoria next time we're visiting! Thank you again for everything...when we're back from Hawaii I plan to spread how awesome you guys are all over the internet.
