I just wanted to thank you for all you did

Hi Kelly,

I just wanted to thank you for all you did in preparation for my wife’s 40th Surprise party! Shannon, our bartender, was amazing. In the chaos leading up to Kristi’s arrival, Shannon got the bar together, all nicely organized, and I can’t say enough about her. All our guests remarked on how wonderful she was. Not only would I recommend your services to anyone who’s having a party, I will, without a doubt, be calling on you again for help and expertise with our next party!

Thank you again!

My family and I wanted to thank you

Good Morning Kelly,

My family and I wanted to thank you and your staff for providing exceptional service at our engagement party last Saturday, 7/20. Please send our “thank you’s” once more to your staff for their hard work!

It was a pleasure working with you and your team.

Sarah

A belated thank you

A belated thank you to your team and you for another successful event. We’re certainly grateful for their help and positive and friendly attitudes! I hope that it was ok that we sent them off with a lot of the uncooked food and alcohol as an extra gratuity. Since we weren’t going to use it, it just felt like the right thing to do.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth

Tara and Lindsay were awesome

Hi Kelly,

As usual Tara and Lindsay were awesome. Once they got there I did not have to worry about anything. It was a wonderful family reunion thanks to all of you

Thanks loads for sending us Lindsay

Hi Kelly

Thanks loads for sending us Lindsay. She was prompts, super sweet, and very responsible. She took initiative at all the right moments and was a really big help overall. Several of our guests commented on how great she was.

Well done.

Kind regards and talk soon.

What a beautiful wedding day we had because of Kelly and her wonderful staff. From the get go Kelly was by our side to help with any questions we had. We are on the other side of the country so I thought planning would be hard, but with Kelly being so attentive and flexible, it went very smooth. She gave us advice when we weren’t sure which way to go and made sure everything was taken care of beautifully! The bar staff squeezed limes all morning because we wanted margaritas as our signature drink, I couldn’t believe the attention to detail. Thank you Kelly and the As You Wish staff, we had the perfect day because of you!

We really did have the best day because of you all. You made everything so wonderful! I might be contacting you in the future for a potential job! Haha. We’re moving home and looking to buy a place upstate in Hudson Valley and I have been doing event planning for restaurants and non-profits for a while now and hoping to extend that to weddings in the future! Let’s keep in touch! Thank you again, Kelly!

Happy Holidays!

Kelly & Co:

We can’t thank you enough for your support and patience with our party. It has been a dream working with you, thank you so much!

We can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done

We can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done. Working with you was like working with a member of our family–your warmth and care will last with us for a long time.

For anyone considering working with Kelly, DO IT. She is an incredible person and a true professional. Ours was a backyard wedding, and we had a lot of moving parts to deal with–tent rentals, food vendors, etc. Kelly was there for every step, offering us incredible guidance while still listening to what we wanted, and helping us make sense of our planning! She followed up with every vendor and made sure we had nothing to worry about, not just on our wedding day but the weeks leading up to it. She’s also incredible at hiring; her team was friendly and professional and their service was impeccable.

Thank you Kelly, you are truly wonderful!

Hi Kelly,
Just wanted to tell you that Helene was truly outstanding. She is extremely knowledgeable about food, food prep, presentation and an absolutely delightful person! We could not have had the quality party that we had without her.
Thank you so much,

Tara and crew were SPECTACULAR

Good Morning,

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Tara and crew were SPECTACULAR!!! I must have changed my timelines at least 10 times and they didn’t miss a beat. I LOVED them ALL and would highly recommend in a heart beat.

Loved my day and evening and everything was perfect!

Kelly,

Everyone you hires was WONDERFUL! We got rave reviews about the service – honestly, you all helped us create life-long memories for everyone there! Malcolm and I can’t stop talking about it. I’d love to write rave reviews, as well.Theresa was (and I kept saying this to her all night) – she was AMAZING. She’s strong and smart and flexible. She pivoted when curve balls came and handled every situation with grace and made me feel incredibly confident in everything running smoothly. I cannot say much we appreciated her. Especially in how she handled the cops when they came. Malcolm’s dad overheard her talking with them and said he couldn’t have navigated the situation as well. Thank you! I wanted to also say how wonderful Juliette was (as well as the woman working our bridal table). My mom especially complimented Juliette and how she was truly on top of everything. Her kindness and attention to me and my family was evident. We just loved your whole team!!!!!!

I’m so thankful for your whole team. We had such a fun time. Just everyone had a memorable and special night. We couldn’t have done it without your attentive, professional team

We absolutely loved working with As You Wish for our wedding! Kelly, Theresa, Juliette, Elke, Tiffany, and their entire team were simply a joy. They couldn’t have been more helpful, considerate of our vision, fun to work with, and kind. They were attuned to our needs and provided expert advice based on their extensive experience running events smoothly.

They are very detail-oriented, planning for everything, and they’re cool as cucumbers and flexible, when needed. For instance, when another vendor wasn’t responsive during the wedding day, they found another solution and made it so no one knew anything had happened. They made sure I felt stress-free and pampered all day long, which, as the bride, was truly a gift!

For a 140-person wedding, we had compliments from our guests at how fast the food came out (faster than some restaurants, some said). We also received compliments from guests about how attentive and nice everyone from As You Wish was. They helped make our event elegant and classy.

I strongly encourage anyone reading this to work with As You Wish for your next event — be it for your Big Day, like us, or your own unique celebration!

Kaitlyn, Kristi, Neil and Katie,

I hope that this finds you well and relaxed from the weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for your commitment to the event and dedicated work. You all worked very hard and I fully understand how exhausting it can be. You were professional, warm, gracious, and courteous from the beginning to end. My clients and their guests commented on that and was very pleased. I am incredibly grateful to all of you for helping me create a beautiful and amazing wedding celebration.

My clients were happy with everything. I know that it was a long day and you all made it happen for them.

It is always such a pleasure to work with you! Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.

Have a wonderful day!

Warmest Regards,

Nisa Lee

Kelly, the party was its usual great success. A huge thank you to Elke once again.
As you may know she did not have an easy night before and her mother in laws fall weighed on her but there she was cheery as usual keeping things moving. Elke has become part of the guest list.
My family and guests look forward to seeing her and catching up. Sometimes it seems like there are more people in the kitchen then the living and dining rooms??

So please thank her again and I look forward to seeing her next Christmas.
May your New Year be blessed with only good things

We never have to worry when our professional or personal entertaining is in Kelly’s hand

Whether Kelly is organizing the refreshments to supplement a Professional Convention of Writers, Musicians and Artists on site in Greenwich, Connecticut or catering a corporate dinner event at our home for 50, her attention to detail, her professional staff, her organizational skills and of course her menu enhance and support the goals of the event. We never have to worry when our professional or personal entertaining is in Kelly’s hand.

The very first time I spoke with Kelly, I knew we had chosen the right team to staff my daughter’s wedding. Kelly is on it! She pays minute attention to detail, plans meticulously, is warm and enthusiastic about what she does, and is the ultimate professional. The most important gift she gave me was to be able to thoroughly relax and enjoy my daughter’s wedding day and all of the hard work and planning that was put into it.
This was my first daughter’s wedding. One thing I learned from all of the planning and dealing with vendors, are that timing and communication are absolutely essential. Kelly and her team were incredibly buttoned up concerning both.
Kelly and her staff are punctual, organized, in tune with their events, and know their business. They are friendly and attentive to the needs of guests, and anticipate glitches before they happen. They were all the perfect blend of calm and enthusiastic and truly allowed us to pull off an amazing wedding.
I still have two more daughters and will not hesitate to call her again in the future!
