Pure Joy is grateful to be an invited member of a very special organization called the Leading Caterers of America, an exclusively selected group of the top caterers in the country, leaders in their markets and trendsetters in the industry. Another LCA catering company owner & I made fast friends at the LCA Summit in Charleston last year and she invited me to her place in Nashville! It was SUCH fun to get to go visit another caterer! Monica Holmes, a true Southern Master of Hospitality, started the Clean Plate Club in Nashville, Tennessee in 1980 while raising her son just like I did. Her son, Chris and his wife Lisa, now help run the show and they have a really exciting operation down there.

I have had the pleasure to work with Pure Joy teams on 4/5 at Firestone & 4/18 in Montecito with your PJ Teams.

I cannot be happier & more impressed with every, single part of my experience with your staff. From the planning emails & rental orders to the food service & clean up, it was all just flawless.

Mike was the manager at Firestone on 4/5 and did an incredible job. He was calm, cheerful, helpful, and got service done in a timely & relaxed manner. The buffet displays were beautiful, the food was delicious & perfectly cooked, and the guests (and Bride) were beyond-happy.

Patrick was the manager at the estate wedding we did on 4/18 and Mike was there as well. Honestly, the team that you sent to that wedding was BEYOND the A-Team! All of the servers were familiar to me, cheerful, helpful, flexible, and paid attention to all of the details – and there were quite a few. The photographer made us run late on the timeline but Patrick & the team caught us up (which I LOVED) during dinner service so we were right back on track by entree service!

As you can see, I LOVE working with you & the PJ Team and I just wanted to give kudos to your whole team and specifically to Mike & Patrick for all that they do for the Bride & Groom, the guests, the family and the vendors… and little ol’ me.

Pure Joy has been the #1 caterer on my Preferred Vendors List for 4 years now and these last two events are the reason for that!!

Thank you again for all that YOU do because your leadership shows in your staff & performance. Well done, well done!

PS – the fingerling/caviar limes at the cheese station were EPIC! And were there mulberries too?! You guys think of everything!

I remember when we did our first event “together” at El Capitan Canyon – 10 years ago – and you put dragon fruit on the breakfast buffet table. I was BLOWN away. So creative. Obviously, it was memorable.

Looking forward to many more events together!

Warm regards,
