Wedding Reception - Passed Apps & Self Serve Buffet -
Tango Mare Villa - 8/22/08 - 22 Guests
Karen and I had been in touch for about nine months prior to her event and everything was all set to go. It was going to be a low-key event with close friends and family. Then, about two weeks beforehand, I got a call from the Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park wanting to know if we handle a 70pp cocktail party on that same date. Apparently, the Secretary of the Interior (Dirk Kempthorne) was coming for a visit and they wanted to host an event in his honor.
The wrench was thrown, but our team took it in stride. Knowing that I was personally committed to the first event did not faze them in the least and they produced a first class experience regardless of my absence.
Karen was in mild disbelief that I had not chosen to put myself in charge of the second event, but we have an outstanding team, so there is a high level of confidence. Also, I felt that having worked with her for so long for her very special day, there was a personal connection that would be lost in translation with my other chefs.
All went better than expected at the reception and I know we’ve made a lasting impression on her and her guests.
It is rare that a business exceeds one’s expectations so completely, that afterward you feel compelled to share a praiseworthy testimonial.
While coordinating a destination wedding on the island of St John in the U.S. Virgin islands, we had he pleasure of working with Mat Vacharat at St John Catering . Prompt, imaginative and extremely personable, Mat’s catering truly enhanced and directly contributed to the success of our wedding experience. Mat’s professionalism and dependability were most apparent when he was asked on late notice to provide catering services to a high profile government event on the same evening. He commendably and admirably honored his commitment to our function.
We most highly recommend Mat’s catering to anyone planning large or small events in the US Virgin Islands. A remarkably first-rate service with gourmet quality cuisine.
