Cally and Travis's amazing October 12th wedding day was in part do to your professionalism, guidance, and wonderful food!
The food, the presentation, and the wait staff were all wonderful. The most important to us was that our guests raved about everything! Some quotes from the guests: "The steak was done to perfection and had amazing flavor"; "The stuffed chicken was wonderful and very moist"; "The seasoned potatoes and vegetables were simply delicious". Guests also raved about the appetizers from the chili to the chocolate covered strawberries! They thought all was done with class!
Thank you! Carol Kanto
The wedding of my daughter and new-son-law in August at Dexter's Inn in Sunapee, New Hampshire couldn't have been more perfect! Thanks to Jackie and Santo things went very smoothly. We live 8 hours away and they made it very easy for my daughter to make most of the arrangements about the menu. I was very impressed with Jackie's prompt response to all my concerns the last few weeks before the wedding. They were very willing to work with us on the menu and were respectful of my daughter's wishes to have a "green" wedding. There were many compliments from guests about the delicious appetizers and dinner menu.
If there were any problems I wasn't aware of them. Jackie promised she would take care of everything and she did!
Thanks you for helping us have such a beautiful wedding!

We had a meeting with Special Events Catering about my daughter's wedding and we were completely and wonderfully surprised! They were not only personable but listened to everything we wanted, offered ideas and suggestions and even money saving tips. When we left the meeting I knew, no matter what, I would be hiring them as our caterers. And I did! We corresponded via email a million times through the winter then picked up again just before the wedding. Every email was friendly, understanding and mindful of our budget and ideas.
I had never met Jackie before this but will consider her a long distance friend forever. She promised that I would enjoy my daughter’s wedding/ reception and that she would take care of everything at the reception, and did she ever! I never had to make a single decision or organize a thing once the wedding started. Jackie and Santo are trustworthy and do what they say they will do, no surprises!
Together with their staff, they provided optimal service to us and our guests. Their attentiveness made me feel so special and as the mother of the bride, I appreciated their sensitivity to every detail.
Our menu included a variety of appetizers, together with NY Sirloin steak and Italian chicken grilled on site, penne pasta, roasted red potatoes, green bean almandine, tossed salad, and rolls as well as a coffee station. We served the meal buffet style as our intention was to have a relaxed farm style. I have never heard so many people compliment on wedding food. It was delicious! Each person got their own thick steak and for those meat eaters - they were in heaven! I tasted it all and my palate was not disappointed.
From beginning to end, they surpassed my expectations. They are more than happy to work within your budget effectively – and as I said, they even offered money saving tips! I was not disappointed with any aspect of the process. I will highly recommend them to you and yours but most importantly, I will not hesitate to call on them again if I ever need an event catered! - Linda Friedman
"Taking the Plunge!"
When it comes to catering, Special Events Catering is a triple threat with exceptional prices, service, and food. When I first met Jackie and Santo, their genuinely friendly personalities made me feel as if I had known them for years. They were incredibly accommodating and easy to work with. To top it all off, they put together a unique and delicious menu at a truly unbeatable price. I knew that they were perfect for the job of catering our Friday night rehearsal and Saturday evening reception dinners. From the initial stages of planning to the wedding itself, their professionalism, organization, and attention to detail were remarkable. Our 170 guests raved about the food, loving the appetizers and meal selections. All were equally impressed by the service, noting the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. I cannot thank Jackie and Santo enough for making our wedding weekend go so smoothly. I am confident that everyone who chooses Special Events Catering will find that Jackie, Santo, and their crew exceed even the highest of expectations!

food was great! We had a family reunion and 87th birthday
party for our father. Special Events Catering's staff set up quickly and left us to
enjoy a delicious chicken that everyone raved over, roasted potatoes, fresh
salad, and light and fruity dessert that was perfect for a summer day.
They were very thoughtful to go to the house (a rental on Lake Sunapee) beforehand to see what
the space was like. They did an excellent job and everyone was extremely
pleased, this coming from a family of food connoisseurs!
Thank you, Holly Gahm
When we first got engaged, my husband, a confirmed foodie, insisted that the food had to be delicious. Realistically, we knew it also had to be reasonably priced and the caterers had to provide good service. We found everything we were looking for with Special Events Catering.
When I met with Santo and Jackie for our first
appointment, I felt as if I was chatting with old family friends as we
discussed all the options for our reception meal. Santo and Jackie were very honest and practical about the best food to serve for a crowd of approximately 200. Their
first concern was to provide us with the best possible meal for our
guests, and their experience helped make our decisions easier.
Their efforts came through on the day of the
wedding as our guests devoured their appetizers, raved over the buffet
options, and were floored by the sundae bar. Seems we weren’t the only
ones delighted by the delicious food!
Not only was the food amazing, but the service was excellent. Jackie
and Santo worked tirelessly to make sure every detail was perfect and
it gave us the opportunity to relax and enjoy the moment. We’re grateful to Santo and Jackie for helping to make our wedding day a wonderful memory.

Santo was an integral part of what made our entire wedding weekend an enormous success. He catered our rehearsal dinner, our wedding dinner, and brunch the following day. To do this, he needed to collaborate with not only me and my husband-to-be, but two different sets of parents and an aunt who lived half way across the country. Each of the meals were simply delicious, and we received numerous compliments from our guests.
Everybody who worked with Santo raved about how pleasant, accommodating, and professional he was. He was also very honest and fair in his pricing. We would not hesitate to recommend Santo to anyone planning a wedding or any other event needing a caterer. Dana and David
Thank you for all of the wonderful food throughout the entire weekend. It was a pleasure to work with you and to be a guest an an event you catered. Rebecca
Dear Santo and Jackie: We just wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication in helping us plan our reception. It was such a pleasure to work with you. We appreciated the time you spent meeting and chatting with us when we were first planning the event, as well as the time you took to make revisions to our order as plans changed and guest number fluctuated.
The wedding reception was undoubtedly a success. The efforts of both of you, as well as your staff, before and on the day of the reception were outstanding.
We were amazed at how smoothly everything seemed to flow. The food looked and tasted great, it was really above and beyond what we could have imagined, and we never once had to worry about anything. You made the reception very easy and carefree and we could not have asked for more.
I hope that if we ever need a caterer again in the future that we would be able to work with you again. We will certainly be recommending you to others when we have a chance. Thank you for all of your efforts to make our reception a wonderful success! Stan and Sarah
Santo and Jackie were the best! It's been a year since our parent's 50th anniversary party and people are still talking about the food that was served (they were hoping we would throw another party)! Melody
Thank you SO MUCH for the chocolates! They were by far our favorite gift! Valerie and Eric
The chocolates were awesome! You know you've 'arrived' when your picture is on a chocolate!" Don
