  Philip, it is now November 3 and I am just now seeing this email!!!   Hope I didn't need to get anything to you because I surely didn't see this to respond!   The dust has settled, final guests left for England Saturday evening, Michele and Chris arrived safely in Minnesota , and we finally got a very full night's sleep.   You and Barbara saved the wedding by thinking of Plan B for the Crab Feast.   We will never be able to thank you enough for that.   Everything you did was perfect.   It was beautifully executed, decorated perfectly, professionally served, fabulously cooked.  The guests loved the crabs and all the other "fixins"....   Your suggestions proved to be perfect.

Then, after all the arrangements for the Crab Feast, you did it again at the actual wedding ceremony!   Did you sleep at all???    Again, everything was beautiful, and the food was delicious.   My only regret about the entire day was that I didn't get to try all your selections.   Too much talking and too many people to see...but what I did taste was fabulous.   And...thank you for the left overs!   We have enjoyed them all week.   One of our guests commented on how friendly and helpful your staff was.   You just made Michele's wedding come off like clockwork.    Thank you with all my heart for your suggestions, fabulous food, and calm manner!    You and Barbara are a great combination, and you know...I will always recommend ya'll to anyone who is looking for a first class caterer.    God bless...Mickie Deline...and Don, too.

Hi Phil :  As I expressed to you on Saturday (10/04/2008) many people make promises  which often come up short on delivery.  However, in the case of Annapolis - Catering , your delivery and that of your staff exceed all expectations.  The quality of food , its presentation  and the professionalism  displayed by the service staff is a credit to your leadership and dedication to your business and clients.   Family and guests provided only  positive accolades of  what can  truly be described as an elegantly presented  affair.   Both Marie and I thank you for helping make my daughter's reception a most memorable occasion.


I don't know your feelings about sharing recipes but the cranberry sauce was fabulous and Marie might take a crack at it given your assistance.


Again thanks .  You have earned our confidence and we would not hesitate in passing along our  more than favorable reference of your capabilities  to anyone who might ask.


Most importantly , though , the check is in the mail.   regards Ed and Marie Waleryszak

Hi Philip,

I hope that you and Barbara are doing well.

Mark and I just wanted to thank you and your staff for the wonderful job you did at our wedding on September 15th.  Everything was beyond what we had hoped for, the food was wonderful, and you provided such a great professional service.  We were so pleased and you helped make our day very special.  We will send you and official thank you note in the mail.

If you ever need a reference we will be happy to provide one for you and we hope that some of our guest will consider using your catering company in the future.

Thank you again,

Marie and Mark

?I wanted to thank you on behalf of the bride and groom their guests and myself for doing a lovely job of catering the wedding. I appreciated the attention to detail, including the lovely orchids, the attractive presentation and the delicious food?. I was also appreciative of your staff and their obvious hard work prior to during and following the wedding, The owners mentioned specifically that their home was left in the same condition following the wedding as it was before hand. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job?

Hors D'oeuvre Celebrations

Dear Phil and Barbara,

I wanted to forward you the email below from one of the guests who attended John's Celebration-of-Life Party and Dance.  Rich's comment about the "absolutely delicious food" reflected the feedback I heard from many attendees, including my family, who thought that the food at the party was absolutely wonderful.  I was there when my brother said that you did a wonderful job catering the CoL , and he knows about catering since he retired as head of services for the Air Force.  In addition to feeding the entire service, his team planned the catering for major dinners and special receptions for literally months in advance of the events.  Al mentioned your food as a highlight of the party again yesterday before he left.  And my sister asked me to tell you that she thought the Cherry Wood Smoked Turkey Pate in Filo was especially delicious.  I only wish that I had stopped dancing long enough to taste everything, and I did have an opportunity to try the ham and biscuits, shrimp, smoked turkey pate, a blackened scallop and a lamb chop and of course a couple of chocolate dipped strawberries... and they were all delicious.

Thank you for creating a wonderful menu and for a lovely presentation.  I personally believe that your food made a major contribution to the success of John's Celebration-of-Life party.

Please be sure to plan on catering the Dance Club's New Years Eve celebration again this year as well as our Holiday Dance.  I'm planning to "stick with a good thing".

With sincere appreciation,

The Party Planner

Dear John,

Thank you for including us in your Celebration-of-Life.  We had a wonderful time.  It truly was a celebration with elegance, warmth, attention to detail, and with absolutely delicious food .  We scored the showcase dances a perfect 10 in every respect.  You are a gracious host and we will always remember your very special occasion!  Thanks again. 

Fondly,  Rich & Alene

Private Parties:

Hi Phil and Barbara,

Just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU for the wonderful party you catered for us. Everyone LOVED the food and of course your yummy lemonade, sangria and margaritas. The ribs were UNBELIEVABLE !!! We nibbled on some even after you left and I would have to say that your ribs are hands down the best!! We could absolutely taste all of the prep work you put into them. The chicken and sides were all delicious, too. I received lots of comments on everything, and especially the Jamaican Pasta Salad. The pineapple is a really nice touch...

So again, thank you. Everyone had a great time and loved it. Even though there weren't that many, there were way more little kids than I expected. It was fun though and I'm glad people came out with their kids instead of staying home because they didn't have a sitter. We really hope you were satisfied too. We would love to have you cater more parties here. July 4th is always a hit - but this year we're taking a break from it. Please thank Mike again for us. He is a great person to work with as are both of you.

BOTH of you have a great summer.

Thanks again for working with us. You are a wonderful team.
