    As a decor company, we absolutely love to hear when Black Woods is catering for our clients. The Black Woods team is easy to work with through the planning process, has clear communication, and serves flawlessly on site. We always know that the Black Woods team is going to take great care of our clients and are always excited to refer them.

    We had our wedding at Glensheen last summer and absolutely loved working with Black Woods for our bar service and catering. Molly was super helpful in answering all of our questions leading up to the day, our guests LOVED the food (and so did we!), and the serving staff and event manager Jessica were incredibly helpful and friendly day-of. All around an excellent experience and great value!
