I just wanted to write a quick ‘Thank You’ on behalf of Maryanne, Rob and myself to all three of you and your incredible extensive staff that worked Maryanne and Rob’s wedding on Saturday. Pure Joy Catering made this entire event go off without a hitch! It was everything I personally dreamed it could possibly be. The entire location was set up perfectly; the entire staff was extremely friendly, kind and helpful. The entire staff was also very professional and dressed as such. The food was very good, and everything I expected it to be. The timeline, transferring of the chairs and all other small details were handled perfectly! Thank you so very much for all your hard work, help, suggestions and diligence. We greatly appreciate everything everyone did!

Laura Becerra, Rob and Maryanne Underwood
