Review of Alan Perl of Ultimate Caterer
Our relationship began with The Ultimate Caterer when we contacted them for help with finding a unique venue for our wedding. It was the best call we could have made...Jennifer, their Sales Director took us to see several of their unique locations and spent lots of time getting to know us and the feel we wanted for our day. After seeing a few places, we visited The James Ward Mansion in Downtown Westfield, which we fell in love with and booked immediately...it was exactly what we wanted to make our day unique, special and memorable. We attended a complimentary tasting at the Ultimate Caterer where we were seduced by their fabulous menu, unique presentation, and professional staff and decided to go their Never Ending Cocktail Reception...Our wedding was an evening of over 20+ different hand passed selections...mini meals as I would call them...Baby Lamb Chops with Mashed Potatoes, Honey Pecan Crusted Salmon with Wild Mushroom Couscous, Almonds n' Amaretto Shrimp Tempura with Lobster Bisque Cappuccino, etc...along with some fabulous cold stations as well!! The food truly never-ended...my guests could not believe that we had over 4 hours of continuous culinary sensations to tempt their every desire and then over an hour of amazing hand passed desserts, mini root-beer floats, assorted scrumptious cheesecake lollipops, home made HOT jumbo cookies and brownies with cold shots of milk and many more...no one left this wedding hungry!! Ultimate Caterer created a menu that worked perfectly for the unique layout of the Mansion...some guests spent the evening drinking & dancing the night away while others caught up with friends and family in the cozy library, elegant dining room or mingled and under the stars in the sky-lit atrium. One guest commented that "the evening was filled with so many little surprises, holding many treats for all the senses...elegant and eclectic at the same time...a wedding like no other..."! Many of our guests echoed that same praise of the venue and food. Our wedding was on April 24th 2010 and our family and friends are still raving! We are forever appreciative to The Ultimate Caterer for making our dreams and vision come true. Thank you Jennifer, Will (chef) and Alan (owner) for creating memories that will last a life time, you were exceptional from beginning to end!
