I wanted you to know how very much we appreciated and enjoyed the responses, suggestions, and service provided by Aleene from the initial emails as we were considering a number of caterers, food tasting, suggestions and recommendations, and the wedding reception food preparation, set-up, service, and clean-up. A catering manager can make or break an event (and a business), and you all have a gem in Aleene. Additionally, Candice served, ran and sweated like a champ and with such a kind and gracious demeanor. She went above and beyond and even sought me out to tell me how much she enjoyed and was honored to serve and be a part of our reception. Wow! I was blown away!

The food was absolutely delicious, the service was great, and the clean-up and take down went smoothly and unnoticed by our guests who were most complimentary of the food and service.

We wanted to be sure to thank you all and know we will recommend Aleene and Get Carried Away to friends and family.

All the best to you all, your family and your business!
