Rhonda, I just wanted to write and let you know how amazing your staff was last night. They were all so great to work with. Gio was an unbelievably wonderful banquet captain. He was totally organized to a "T" and you can tell his crew really respects him. Bob did an awesome job bar-tending; he is fun spirited and very professional. The rest of the crew did terrific as well. Everything went very smoothly thanks to all of them. Gio paid close attention to every detail without fail and the bride and groom were overjoyed with his service and meticulous manner. The bride and groom as well as guests could not say enough how delicious the food was! I look forward to working with all of them again in the near future. I also want to say to you Rhonda how much I appreciate your attention to detail and how wonderful you were about the last minute changes, even when I called you the day before in LA, you were awesome!! Ranch Events & Catering is by far the best in this industry and my new favourite as a coordinator!! Thanks again, Melinda M. Sparks In The Moment Event Service

It is with GREAT pleasure that I recommend Ranch Events and give the highest praise to Bernardo, our wonderful event manager. We rented the Seaside Room in Marina Village for our wedding last week and hired Ranch Events for all of our catering needs, room set-up and food service. It was great to have all of those items taken care of by one vendor. It made our wedding planning a ton easier but what really made it a breeze was working with Bernardo! He was so accommodating and really went out of his way to make sure we had the most amazing day! Prior to our wedding, Bernardo met with us several times to do food tastings, table settings and walk-thrus at the venue. He and his staff were very generous and offered us wonderful hospitality. Bernardo worked diligently with us to discuss floor plans and decoration options. He was very responsive to my emails and phone calls and always had a positive answer or provided a comparable solution. There didn't seem to be anything that he couldn't or wouldn't do for us. Our wedding day was beyond perfect! The decorations that he and his team did for us were unbelievable! The room itself has a beautiful view of the marina with a great deck in front and a large connecting patio that we were able to use for our ceremony. The venue, the food, the service, the decorations and the entire experience working with Bernardo and his team was an absolute delight. We were so lucky to have been able to work with Bernardo.

We used the Seaside room for our wedding ceremony and reception site in March 2015. We worked with Bernardo as our point of contact and I have the highest compliments for him and his staff. From the first day we met with Bernardo, he took a genuine interest in what we wanted for the wedding and reception. The fact he controlled the room setup, décor and catering was a tremendous advantage and made it easier for us to focus on other vendors. The reception went exactly as promised, the buffet lines went smoothly and there were no significant delays to get everyone served. We received compliments on the food quality and it exceeded our expectations. Choosing the cupcake option allowed us to choose a variety of flavours and guests were able to sample the multiple options. Bringing our own alcohol saved us a significant amount of money and allowed us to have an open bar for the entire reception. The Ranch bartenders were responsive and professional and made sure that we got back everything that was not used. Highly recommend this location. Our first impression was that the empty room looked a little dated, but once Bernardo and his team worked their magic we were left with a gorgeous setting for a lifetime of memories. Clay O.

Ranch catered our wedding at Marina Village on 3/12/15. It was beautiful and everything went exactly as I hoped! The food was delicious -- perfect really! The short ribs were to die for! Rhonda was our contact there, she was so sweet and helpful and amazing! She helped us plan every detail and really made my dream come true. We were on a tight budget, Rhonda was open to negotiating the price and working with us on that. She also made sure we had the pretty chairs (makes a difference not having to use a separate rental company) and every detail the way we wanted. Even down to the way the napkins were folded! Staffs were very helpful too, setting up early in the day so we could put down our DIY centerpieces. Our event captain, he was very nice and gracious. It all came off without a hitch and Ranch was a big part of the reason why! I highly recommend them and working with Rhonda specifically. Felicia P.

Kathy has been nothing but absolutely wonderful during the planning process for our Holiday Events this year. This is my first time organizing these events and I have had incessant questions and requests for Kathy. She has been courteous and professional - not to mention prompt - in her responses and it is very much appreciated. We have used Ranch Events the last couple of years and although the food is always wonderful, I can see that it is also the service we receive that consistently has us coming back to you. Thank you to your team for all that you do - it does not go unnoticed! Thank you! Erin McDonough Senior Associate Irvine Company Office Properties

Rhonda Wick, I am compelled by gratitude to write and express the blessings of my experience working with you and Ranch Events over these past two months! During my first telephone conversation with you in early December, you instilled confidence, hope, and assurance that with you and Ranch Events on board, our February 8th Celebration Event would be awesome - And it was! Each and every time we talked or I had a question, you were immediately responsive, accommodating and assuring. I so appreciated you! Thank you! Your willingness to meet Steve and me with Jon at Sunrise was such a relief and a reaffirmation of our choice to hire Ranch Events. Your idea, knowledge and experience were invaluable. And then to have a second meeting with Bob and his assistant, Kathy, was beyond any expectation. Bob's calm, gentle and generous responses and his depth of understanding of our situation was a true blessing. He is amazing! Thank you for everything and there is truly so much for which we are thankful to you during the entire journey. The food was delicious and served hot; the service was courteous, gracious and prompt. Our entire event was a success largely due to you, Bob, and Ranch Events, and the working relationship we shared. I wish you could have seen the beauty of the room and the wonderful, delicious, enjoyable evening shared by all in attendance. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Sincerely, Lucy and Steve Lo Cicero

Dear Rhonda, Thank you so much for your constant guidance, patience, and support for our wedding! Saturday night was the best night of my life, due in large part to all your efforts! Michael and I would never have been able to achieve such a magnificent evening if it were not for you and the professionals at Ranch Events. Everything was perfect--well organized, beautiful, and delicious. I am sorry for all the times I was challenging along the way, thank you for allaying my anxieties throughout the process. Please feel free to use Michael and I as a reference in the future, we would be honored to retell the wonderful details that you made possible. I wish you all the success and happiness possible down the road. Thank you for making our wedding a dream comes true! Best wishes, Corey and Michael

Everything was just perfect. You transformed a plain office in library station into a beautiful place for a party. I receive so many compliments on your food, service, and décor. My boss, the board of directions, the staff, and most importantly, our guest were thoroughly impressed. I was blown away by your personal attention to our party. I know our event was small by your standards, but you made it seem like it was important to you. Your attention meant a lot to me! We greatly appreciate everything you did to make our event a success.

I am the manager at first Congregational Memorial Tower. We had our Christmas Party by Ranch Events. I just want to take this opportunity to tell that it was the most "perfect" dinner that we could imagine. Bernardo and his crew did a spectacular job. There was nothing we could have wanted that he didn't provide. The entire senior community was overwhelmed by the beautiful décor and marvelous service not to mention the mouthwatering food. Once again, my sincere thanks and gratitude for everything that was provided to us. We will be sure to spread the word.

Louis and Linda were fabulous. They handled the party like pros. We had one problem, though the cake showed up with nothing written on it but they handled it flawlessly and it was corrected. My daughter was very surprised and extremely pleased. It was the most elegant bridal shower that many of these guests will ever attend. It was the nicest I have ever been too or been a part of. I was very proud and honored to be able to give my daughter this amazing party. There were a couple hic ups before the party but all worked out. You know my expectation level now and you also know how picky I am and what my expectation level is, which is Very high. Thanks so much for your assistance in helping me create a great party.

It is with great pleasure that I'm writing this letter of commendation for the captain of our event. My daughter, Marisa's wedding was Catered & designed by Ranch Events. The food and service was received by guests and family with many compliments, but it was the manner in which the service was provided by your staff, that drew the greatest reviews. My daughters and indeed our two families were impressed by the professionalism and personal touch & the attention to detail. The captain was facilitative and coordinated the events with easy and skill. Many of our guests were very complementary. In our every day "hustle and bustle" were generally expect quality, service and we are quick to complain when we don't receive it. We often forget that a job well done should not be overlooked. Thank you to all the staff who contributed greatly to success of the wedding and ceremonies that followed. Our family is grateful.

Dear Jessica, Rhonda, and Jennifer, My husband and I would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of you, and your staffs, for the extraordinary job that you all did for my daughter, Stephanie Marcks, and her husband, Jordan Weisman, at their wedding on Saturday, 1/2/10. The wedding experience exceeded all of our expectations. The room was beautiful in both set-ups; both the ceremony and the reception afterwards. The food was delicious and we received many compliments on your behalf. The flowers and centerpieces were lovely and exactly what my daughter had anticipated. Every staff member that we came in contact with, both prior to, and on the day of the wedding, was professional and helpful. Our friends and families raved about the whole wedding experience and we wholeheartedly agreed with them.
