Gloria helped in so many ways to make our intimate backyard wedding beautiful, delicious and seamless. She (and her team) catered everything, provided gorgeous flowers, helped us decorate, lent us beautiful antique china, glassware, silverware, vases and candleholders, and - perhaps most importantly - pulled it all together with aplomb. On the day of the wedding she coordinated her staff as well as other vendors and helping hands, and made sure that everything flowed easily and naturally. I really had no stress about anything that she was in charge of! Which was a great gift on such a hectic and eventful day.The results were fantastic: the food was delicious, beautiful, and plentiful, the flowers were lush, and the entire wedding was suffused with her lovely aesthetic. We chose to serve dinner family style, so it was an elegant feast with much sharing and passing of bright, seasonal dishes presented on Gloria’s antique platters. So many people remarked about the food that I lost count. The photos only hint at how special it felt!The best thing about Gloria is how dedicated she is to bringing your vision to life. Most caterers handle so many weddings that you are just one of a long list of clients, and customization is limited to adjusting menu items. Gloria is a fount of creativity, and really wants to know how you’d like your day to feel, look and taste...and then draws on her many talents to make that vision a reality. She is willing to handle as much or as little as you’d like her to (she does catering, flowers, decoration, coordination, and also owns a lovely venue), and engages with you in the process of figuring out details and decisions. I met with her a couple of times at her house, even walking through her garden to look at flowers and picking out vases from her extensive collection. All in all, she brought an incredible vision to our day and executed it really well. Would recommend her highly!
