The venue looked phenomenal. Raw bar was a hit at cocktail hour. Ice cream bar got RAVE reviews. Everyone in my family specifically mentioned how good the lamb was. Excellent job. I really appreciate your attention to detail.

This was the “EVENT” of “EVENTS” for our group! The museum was a great venue and you were right… “people will love it!” The comments we’ve received were fabulous; wonderful; perfect ending of a great convention. The menus was great and you helped make Barth Electric explode.

I cannot tell you how wonderful yesterday’s event was. The food, decor, and staff were amazing. Thank you for all your help making this event possible.

Kristin Indianapolis Museum of Art September 23, 2014

We have received nothing but positive comments! This was a big event for us, not only in numbers but in the somewhat controversial and forward thinking topic, so we needed all of the details to be spot-on. We couldn’t have been more pleased with how everything turned out.

Hannah, Indy Chamber Indianapolis Museum of Art September 23, 2014

I wanted to take the time to send you and your staff a thank you note for everything on Saturday.  It was truly a pleasure to work with such a professional and dedicated group. I can assure you that Carrie and Melvin’s day was made more memorable by having her vendors execute as you did. I hope that we have the opportunity to work together in the future.

Jessica, Mother of the Bride Indianapolis Museum of Art September 23, 2014

That was a great evening all around and I am a harsh critic! The food was good and the staff/service was lovely. What a setting. Nice job on the daily storm timing too!
Thank you for all of your work.

Jane, University High School Indianapolis Museum of Art September 23, 2014

Let me be the first to say, that once again you and your staff have proven why you are the best in the business.  Saturday night was wonderful.  I’ve heard great feedback from our guests. The food was practically perfect and the service impeccable.
