Thank you very much for taking care of our wedding at the sea center pier. I had several family and friends approach me to comment on how impressed they were with the satff that was working our event! Each of the three comments that I received were in reference to different staff members! You are true professionals who have managed to maintain the warmth that goes into hospitality. From the moment we walked into the door at Pure Joy to start the planning thru to the end of the event, having you as our caterers was comforting. Thanks for being so good at what you do that we could relax and enjoy the day!
