The owners and managers of ArtQuest are a super-friendly and hard-working married couple named Victor and Kathy. For whoever is the “planner” in your relationship, let this put your mind at ease – ArtQuest is, without a doubt, the most organized vendor I have seen in the bridal industry.
What you see with this company in meetings and tastings is exactly what you get for your wedding day – from what I’ve heard about other catering companies, this is not always the case.
Victor has taken time to develop recipes for their dishes, and even has a bread machine, in which they make homemade rolls (highly recommended). All of what we ordered was good, but we received especially high reviews from the empanadas (one of our tray-passed appetizers) and the four-cheese ravioli in homemade vodka sauce (my favorite from the evening).
The fruit and cheese display option was a great choice for us – Kathy and Victor make it look amazing. Also, we had an INCREDIBLE ice sculpture of an elephant, which was modeled after the wedding favors we handed out. I underestimated how much an ice sculpture could add to the ambiance of a party.
Not to be overlooked are the table arrangements – ArtQuest provided our linens and other items to make for a unique and welcoming dinning table for each of our guests. They also have a convenient bar package for glassware and mixers, if your venue allows you to bring your own alcohol.
Gauging an exact guest count is nearly impossible for any bride or groom, and it’s frustrating to pay for meals for empty seats. Whichever caterer you choose, provide a guest count number below your current estimate – companies will have no problem issuing you an additional bill.
ArtQuest will work within your budget to maximize what they can provide. The genuinely care about your event going well, which is evident in their follow-through. I would highly recommend them for a wedding, or any important event where you might need their services.
