Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes catered my wedding & did an exceptional job every step of the way. They were professional & easy to work with, they had great suggestions to offer as we were making all of the complex decisions and perhaps most important: they followed through - providing the multitude of special requests with flawless organization & delivery, making my wedding a truly magical day. The food was DELICIOUS & my guests are still commenting on how impressed they were ... If only I could have another plate-full - YUM! The team/staff of T&T is also something to comment on. Working with Kristin Beman throughout the entire process was an incredible experience - absolutely 1st-class / 5-star, but what was equally impressive was the T&T team who worked their magic the day of the event. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure that every guest was taken care of, while also checking in with me to see if I was in need of anything, a level of service that is tough to find anywhere, long-less a large event, yet it's the level of service that T&T provides, with big smiles & friendly workers. Their staff even helped with some last minute wedding prep, which was above & beyond, just as all of our dealings with this fabulous company were.
Thank you, Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes!
One happy bride
We wanted to let you know how happy we were with your staff and the delicious food that just kept coming out over the evening. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was. We loved the staff you sent, they were terrific and really helped keep the festive vibe going through the night. They cleaned everything well and the venue signed off on the kitchen clean-up. We were relieved that we didn’t need to worry about that at the end of the night. Great kudos to the bartenders as well! My husband became good friends with them as did most of our guests!
Lastly, thank you Stephanie for all your great help and advice leading up to the wedding. You made the whole process very easy. Your company came highly recommended to us, and you all lived up to your good reputation. The whole wedding was everything we had hoped for, and Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes played a big role in the success.
T&T has a reputation for efficient warmth, which everyone on your team validated. The beverage lead had such a sparkle! Her position made her especially visible, so I’d glance over occasionally and see her responding to the music, being attentive to guests… Lovely.
All 4 of my sisters, all 3 of my daughters, and several other relatives shared responsibility for hosting. I’m sure we all tossed requests to team members. I’m equally certain that the responses were tactful and immediate.
Since our guests included a full spectrum -- babies, toddlers, wheelchair, walker, tipsy groomsmen, pregnant bridesmaid, grandparents… dogs, horses! – and since everyone capable of speech spoke highly of the food, the care, the attention to detail, I’d say you knocked this one out of the park.
Thank you for managing a herd of details. I didn’t spend a moment worrying about ANYthing that was on your list. The food was delicious. (Our foodie friend waxed euphoric about the salmon. If Steve’s impressed, you KNOW the whole crowd’s happy!) The team were uniformly on-time, self-managing, resourceful, diplomatic, impeccable – and very, very kind.
As for our event, I mean this wholeheartedly – everything T&T touched was amazing! The food (of course) always shines bright but the customer service is truly next level. I can’t praise the team enough - they are happy, kind, genuine, and maybe the most helpful – they really see the event and are proactive!!! One example among many - when desserts weren’t being eaten, Joe & Leslie took the initiative to make sampler platters and bought them to every table. Genius! It’s these little touches that make T&T stand out and why we continue to partner with your company.
We have had the honor of working with Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes for 15 years now! Every year the team goes out of their way to surpass our expectations and this year was no different. It’s a privilege to work with your dedicated and professional staff that compliments the artistic level of our organization and event.
