Testimonials

yelp has become the standard for reviewing local businesses - please check out the praise we have received from past clients.

We enjoy forging long-lasting bonds with our wedding clients. The relationship that we develop while planning one of the most important days in their lives is very important, and we take this very seriously  (though we have a lot of fun in the process.)  We love to hear years later about life and job updates, and especially about the new babies.  You can read below some of the compliments we have received over the years.

To say that Edie and I were thrilled from start to finish—meaning, from our first meeting at your home to the last piece of furniture being restored precisely to its proper location yesterday (and every step of the way in between)—would not be adequate to express our full measure of appreciation and gratitude. The planning and execution were flawless; the food  was absolutely delicious and the graciousness and efficiency of your staff exceeded our very high expectations. You should be—as I am sure you are—extraordinarily gratified to have put together an organization capable of functioning at such a high and seamless level.

It was a magical day, and night and, to be sure,  my son and his new wife were the stars. But even stars need their ensemble and Jane Hammond Events provided the best supporting cast we could possibly have imagined...

"We don’t know how to thank you enough for the extraordinary role you played in making our wedding at the Asian Art Museum as absolutely beautiful, worry-free, delicious, and memorable as it was…"

"Jane,
First of all, when I first imagined the spectacular wedding we wanted, I knew it was not possible. How do you take such huge spaces and make them intimate and accessible without overcrowding? How do you transport lamb shank from across the building and have it show up hot and delicious on the table? How do you make City Hall Rotunda look more elegant than I have ever seen it? How do you keep Drexel (the impossible to please customer) happy while maintaining a thousand variables, all of which are dependent on humans, by their nature imperfect?
 
You put it in the hands of Jane and Amy.
 
Brava! Outstanding! It was perfect! No matter the request, it was handled.
 
Ali and I could not have had a better time and everything, top to bottom, was outstanding. I can’t thank you enough!"

"Hi Amy and Jane,
 
Ken and I wanted to say thank you so much for being part of our special day. The day was more than perfect! From the beautiful set-up, flawless coordination, professional & friendly service, delicious food and all the attention to details were just beyond incredible. It was the way I imagined it and much more. We received many compliments on the scallops and rib eye steak. I personally loved the steak with scented mushroom and corn pudding! Thank you for the to-go boxes as well. That was very thoughtful and our post-party crowd enjoyed every bit of it. We also got a lot of compliments on the desserts (though I completely forgot to try some - the last two hours just flew by!!)
 
I know that all the vendors just loved working with you; they commented on your excellent teamwork and collaboration behind the scene. Thank you again for your amazing and hard efforts. We would love another opportunity to work with you all again! (I had so much fun! I keep telling Ken, let's get married again!!)"

"When my mother and I met with you last year, we instantly felt at ease and knew that putting our reception in your care was the right thing to do. We can’t get over how beautiful the wedding was, and the reception far exceeded our expectations and dreams. To this day we still get comments on the food! I want to thank you and the JHE team for giving us the wedding of my dreams!"
 
Colony and Michael

Carolyn and Michael
 
"I don’t know where to begin. Everything last night was a dream come true, and you made that possible, We were able to sit back, relax and enjoy the whole day. The food was beyond amazing! You made everyone feel so special that our guests all feel that you are now part of their families."

"Naomi & Jane,
 
What are you up to this coming weekend? Can we do that again?! I loved everything. Food, drinks, staff, flowers, lighting, table design, band, dessert bar. Did I mention the dessert bar? Thank you so much."

"Hello JHE Team,
 
A huge thank you for the amazing job you all did on Sunday. We had so much fun and it really was perfect. The fantastic food, attention to every detail and the friendly team executing our vision was noted by all of our guests. I can't tell you know many times someone told us " you don't expect wedding food to be good, and this is delicious." or "who kept everything going, it was all so smooth and seamless." Thank you Thank you!
 
Top favorites were the potatoes au gratin (of course) the warm figs and the coffee cart!
 
We also want to thank you for the many months of pleasant coordination and for your expertise and advice along the way!"

"Dear Jane - We can't tell you how many times over the past few months we have thanked our lucky stars that we stumbled upon you.  You have been a calm voice, an expert advisor, a visionary and a friend when we needed it most.
