Merri-Makers was a wonderful company to work with! We got married at Taylor Pavilion in Belmar, NJ. The venue is an empty room so you have to bring everything in. Even though we didn’t rent the venue through Merri-Makers, once we did book them as our caterer they were extremely helpful in coordinating with the rental company. The owner, Rick, sat down with us and tailored the menu to suit our tastes, even offering things not in the original package. Our event planner, Patty, was fantastic to work with and met with us in person a number of times to go over every little detail and to answer any questions. On the day of the wedding, she was there from beginning to end making sure everything went smoothly. The entire staff was very friendly. Our guests complemented the service, and of course, the food was delicious! They really enjoyed the custom menu. Merri-Makers truly helped give us the wedding and reception we dreamed of. We would definitely recommend Merri-Maker

Dear Ladies,

I can’t tell you enough how absolutely wonderful it was to experience my daughter’s wedding and be under your care at Bonnet Island.

You were there every step of the way, comforting my nerves and anxiety at all points through the process.
Andrea, you are a true gem with the patience of a saint. I felt so taken care of throughout the day. Although I spent it in a complete FOG; I always felt you were anticipating anything that I may have been concerned with.

Your staff is extraordinary and went out of their way to accommodate us and our needs. You should all be so proud of the professionalism and warmth with which you carry out your work.

Most importantly, seeing our daughter so happy and having her dream wedding come to life was a memory I will always have thanks to all of you.

Now that I can breathe again, I can look back on all you did to make our day so very special and memorable with the utmost gratitude and now I can enjoy my champagne-thanks Ginny!

Forever grateful,

We don’t even know where to begin on how to thank you all for making our wedding possible. Our expectations were exceeded in every way possible and truly not a day goes by where I don’t think about our big day and how lucky we were to experience it at the Ashford. From Laura meeting with us whenever we needed, always quickly responding to my emails, to the girls that made sure I had water to drink all day, everything and everyone was incredible!

Our day was straight out of a fairytale and Chris we will be forever thankful to you for that!

Love always,
Ed and Amanda
