The original contract was really just a reservation from my point of view because I wanted to secure the date with McHale’s. I knew we would plan the details for the rehearsal dinner after all the wedding details had been decided, so as not to overlap. I very was happy that Mc Hale’s was able to later customize a menu just for us. Jen was great to work with. She took note of every detail I asked about and my many questions. She was very helpful in advising me about working with the venue (New Riff). We really wanted to customize the menu and we had very specific ideas about how the evening was to progress. Jen was great at making all of that happen and letting me know the cost of every detail. There were no surprises. The staff was wonderful, just amazing. Please tell Jenny, Pam and Chelsea that I was so happy to work with them. Jenny was on top of everything, really kept me on track with the time line. I was able to really enjoy the event without watching the clock. She seemed to know exactly how I wanted the evening to go and it just flowed. Pam and Chelsea were lovely servers – very professional and attentive to details and very considerate of my guests. The food was superb. Everyone commented on how good it was; the salmon was excellent. The portions were generous and I was able to enjoy the leftovers at home. We loved the presentation, just the way we had described what we wanted, and everyone loved the orchid on the plate. It was beautiful. I'm sorry that I didn't get a chance to meet and thank the chefs that night. Please personally let Chris know that the Bread Pudding dessert with bourbon glaze was out of this world. We specially requested this and it was a highlight of the meal. It was plated with the glaze, berries and whip cream exactly as my son had asked for it and he was thrilled. Thank you all. I could not have been happier with everything.
