You can imagine our shock and disappointment to find out less than three weeks before our daughter's wedding, that our original caterer was declaring bankruptcy and had all of money!   Not only was our caterer doing the food, but also providing the rentals such as china, linens and tables!  We did meet with a few caterers, but luckily, I was given a recommendation for A Beautiful Beginning from an acquaintance.  We really felt that A Beautiful Beginning was as upset as we were about our former caterer, and were willing and eager to help make things right for us.  Tonja Bitencourt's attentiveness to detail, such as emailing pictures of different napkin folds to us, coordination with their china, linens with our ideas, even with floral presentation, and just her understanding and willingness to make our vintage rustic look shine, really helped make the wedding special.  When the venue forgot to pre-heat the warming ovens for the event, Tonja didn't bat an eye about buying additional microwaves to solve the problem!  Her staff was wonderful, and organized, and we really felt taken care of.  Guests are still talking about the decadent mashed potatoes that were served!  All of this for a reasonable price: personal attention, professionalism, and trust.  You can't beat that!

Thank you, for the beautiful arrangements! We received so many compliments on the flowers and the wonderful aroma. People walked into the chapel and you could actually hear them say mmmm! Family and friends were thrilled to receive arrangements from the reception tables. The bride's bouquet was stunning!
