Greg and I just wanted to say thank you! The food was absolutely amazing and our guests continued to rave about both the appetizers and the dinner for the entire weekend! The pulled pork and tomatillo bites, patacones, ribs, and yucca puree were huge hits! Not only was it delicious, but the presentation and timing were perfect! 


We also wanted to thank you for all of your efforts regarding the beer. You went above and beyond to try to get craft beer at the wedding and we want you to know that we truly appreciate it. 


We would happily recommend you to anyone hosting an event in Costa Rica. You exceeded all of our expectations and we can't thank you enough!


Muchas gracias!


- Chelsea and Greg
