My Daughter and new son in-law just threw a wedding at a Malibu estate and chose Pure Joy Catering to do the food and rentals.

I have never been so impressed with a company of any kind.

Patrick and his staff provided:
The best food imaginable.
If you like braised short ribs that melt in your mouth,
i suggest you try them.

The service was impeccable. The staff is trained to be
professional, friendly courteous and to go out of their way
to make sure each guest feel special.

The estate where this was held, Villa Sancti (Spectacular) presented many special arrangements which Patrick did with ease and grace.

Everything done on time and with Class.

Patrick much thanks from my wife and myself.
You made our daughters dream come true.
She is in Bali now and I am sure she will contact you when she returns.
