"Dear Dean & Charlene:
Well, here we are married and reflecting on the entire weekend. We were absolutely blown away by all of it, and you and your entire team knocked it out of the park. The food was absolutely perfect. The room looked phenomenal. The bar was fantastic. The cocktail hour went splendidly. The servers were friendly, attentive, and detailed. We simply cannot thank you enough for making this day everything we had dreamed of and more. We are so so so happy right now and all of our family and friends have been telling us how amazing the food and service was. We drank, we laughed, and we ate over and over again! Please know that we will very much write a glowing review for you on the knot/wedding wire. We also would be delighted to be a reference for you at any point going forward and speak very highly of your service, attentiveness, professionalism, and product.We are so incredibly grateful and cannot thank you enough for all you did to make this perfect day a reality!"

"Hi Dean and Charlene! Words cannot even come close to describing how perfect Saturday was...You both were absolutely AMAZING. The food and drink were both delicious and everyone swooned over your wonderful service. LOVED having the servers with drinks outside - it was so nice to see people arriving to hug us in the receiving line with a beautiful glass of wine already in hand :) The love and care showed in every single thing that you and all of your staff did. One BILLION thanks to you both for your hard work!! Dean, you are a beautiful and thoughtful human being. Loved getting a fresh icy pink lemonade delivered to me during the cocktail hour - spot on service and love love love there!! And Charlene - the waterproof mascara was such a sweet and thoughtful gift for you to bring over to Jen and I!
Again, amazing. Such tangible love. All was dreamy and delightful. You both rock!"

"Hi Dean, I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was working with your staff on both occasions. Especially the Rosenfield's. They really went above and beyond to help us when we had to scramble to make everything work for the set up. Lisa and Charlene were wonderful, you are very lucky to have them on your team! Your whole team that day was wonderful! Please tell them for me. I hope the Rosenfield's were happy with everything. I look forward to working with you again."
"Hi Dean, Just wanted to let you know I posted a 5 star rating for you on Yelp! You and your staff did a fabulous job at Sarah Fisher and Ryan Wheeler's wedding. Thank you so much!! The only thing that I would recommend you do in the future is label the pasta dishes, and appetizers, and perhaps list the ingredients. Some of the guests were reticent to try something that looked unfamiliar, or that they could not tell right away what it was. I thought EVERYTHING tasted delicious - and the Sangria was to die for! The display for the appetizers was great, and the waitstaff was awesome. Thanks for everything!"
Marlene Fisher - Wedding
"On behalf of Jennifer I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for your assistance in making our reception an incredible celebration. It was, to say the least, nothing short of perfect. The wedding party and guests were treated with the utmost respect and the food and beverages were spectacular. I would like to single out Kevin, who made sure that the bride was catered to without reserve. Please pass along our appreciation to your staff and know that your organization is a class act. Thanks again!!!!!"
Steve and Jennifer Geer - Wedding
"Just a quick thank you (formal card to come) for everything you and your team did for our wedding yesterday! Everyone was raving about the food--it honestly was just as good, maybe even better, than when we tried it at Pizzico. Everything ran so smoothly and tasted so good. Thank you for being so accommodating, and we'll certainly be recommending you to everyone who'll listen to us! We can't stop talking about it!!!!"
Julie and Seth - Wedding
"I did not want any more time to pass before I had the chance to take you for helping to organize my husband's party. It was GREAT. Everything was perfect. The food was great. Staff was attentive, gracious and lovely. The room set up worked really well. Even the flowers were super! It was definitely worth all the time that we spent in the planning. I think you will end up with additional business from this event (even though as things go for you, it was a relatively small event, it was a big deal and important for our family and friends.) Thank you. Wishing you all the best."
Bonnie - Birthday Party
"Didn't want too much time to go by before thanking you for a 'job well done'!!!

"I just wanted to write and say thanks again for such a lovely day. Below is a description of how we feel about the job Decedent Catering did...Decadent Catering is not simply a catering company, it is a group of kindhearted and warm individuals who are dedicated to seeing your event succeed. From the smallest detail to the largest, we couldn't be happier with the way our wedding was conceived, planned and executed. It wasn't only that our guests raved about the delectable food and wonderful signature drinks. It was that from start to finish we felt our wedding was in the hands of professionals. My only regret is that I spent so much time dancing and not enough time eating more of that delicious food! Dean, this is honestly how we feel about the job you and the staff did. Please don't hesitate to give my number or email to prospective customers so that I can rave about you to them! Let's keep in touch okay? Talk soon,"

“Just wanted to get back to you about our graduation party in Barrington. It was fantastic. The room looked beautiful, the app station was AWESOME! All the guest were very impressed with the venue. Our server was great. She was on point with everything. The kitchen forgot the eggplant towers so those were late getting to the guests, but were served as we were having our salads. Over all, it was fantastic… the food was to die for! I had guest that came from Sudbury, MA and Yarmouth Port that both said they would make the trip back to have dinner there. I know I will.”
