"Hi Saffold, There is really no way to adequately express to you how appreciative we are of you, Chef Ahmad and your staff for the wonderful celebration of my son's life (birthday party) last Saturday night. The food. The staff. The presentation. The compassion we felt from everyone on your team. None of this will ever be forgotten. He had friends come from California, New York and New Orleans. We wanted it to be special but oh, it was so much, much more. All thanks to Affairs to Remember. Please accept our very heartfelt thanks. From your taking the time to be there and Chef Ahmad taking such a personal interest by cooking the food and being there as well, from the beautiful set up of everything and from the amazing on-site folks who made it happen, we are beyond grateful. Ha, and I couldn't believe they actually found a way to back the truck up in the driveway - no easy feat! Oh, and did I mention the food? Stellar! People are still talking about those salmon tacos... Again, thank you and please know that Affairs to Remember will always be our top choice for a caterer in Atlanta."
- Mother (son's birthday party, private home)
"Our only feedback is that we think you guys are the best caterers in Atlanta, likely the world, and we were above and beyond thrilled with the food and service, both day-of and leading up to the wedding. Please pass along our praise and thank yous to everyone involved. We particularly loved working with you, Saffold. Hope we get the opportunity to hire Affairs in the future!"
- Bride (wedding reception, Foundry at Puritan Mill)
"Good morning, Nancy! Yes!!! We were very pleased with the delicious food and wonderful service. That's quite a crew you have. They were efficient and very attentive to our needs and the room was a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S place to have a party. I certainly looked like the 'Hostess with the Mostess', but that would not have been the case had you not put it all together for us. Working with you was comforting because I could tell you know what you are doing and that gave me confidence in the end result. Many, many thanks for your help and support. Thank you, Nancy, for such a beautiful start to a wonderful weekend!"
- Jami (wedding reception, Fox Theatre)
"Thanks so much! Everything was perfect!"
- Bride (wedding reception, Atlanta Botanical Garden)
"Dear Saffold, We did it…we are married! We just wanted to thank you and Nikki again for all of your help leading up to and during our big day, from answering all of our many questions to arranging meetings and tastings around our crazy assignment and travel schedules. Our wedding day was a complete blur, but I remember that the ballroom was gorgeous and the décor was perfect—not to mention the candelabras! We are truly blessed to have shared such a special day with our friends and family. Thank you for making that happen!
- Bride (wedding reception, Atlanta History Center)
"EVERYTHING was amazing on Saturday night!! So many people raved about the food!! All of the food displays were gorgeous! I really don't think it could have been more perfect. We loved every minute of it and will HIGHLY recommend Affairs to Remember to anyone. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into making my daughter's dream wedding come true!"
- Amy (wedding reception, Stave Room at ASW)
"You and your team are amazing. From planning, to execution, to clean-up, you made it 'look' easy. I know differently, but you and your colleagues are such pros that every detail was attended to like spinning silk. The décor around the food was exquisite and set an immediately elegant tone for evening. You're simply the best. Three cheers to Affairs to Remember…Thank you."
- Candace (corporate event, Wimbish House)
"Thank you...and I must say, everything was wonderful. The food, the staff, the set-up, it was all great and worth it. All of our guests were raving about the food—in particular the Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding. Now I can't wait to have another large party and get you all involved."
- Naomi (brunch, private home)
"Just wanted to brag on Toyia. She went out of her way to be helpful, was one step ahead on every detail and extremely speedy with requests. Loved her!!! She had a smile on her face from start to finish! So very pleasant and wonderful."
- Ansley (wedding, Magnolia Hall)
"You did an AMAZING job. You really did!!!! The elephant statues were the BEST. People loved them and we got some amazing photos with them. Everything looked perfect.And you were such a constant source of reassurance for me during the whole process! I knew I didn't have a worry in the world with you and Affairs to Remember handling the event. The food was great. I heard great things! I look forward to working with you again! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!"
- Terri (fundraiser, Atlanta History Center)
"The Egyptian Ballroom looked very chic—classic with modern touches. I loved the table accents. I heard a lot of wonderful feedback from the attendees and, as I shared with The Fox, we have a tough crowd! Everything looked delicious. The presentation was elegant and folks were certainly going back for more and more and more… The floor plan was perfect. There was an easy flow to and from the gaming tables to the islands of conversations. [The entertainment] was the auditory icing on the cake!! I don’t think the event could have been more perfect. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!!”
- Jane (corporate event, The Fox Theatre)
"Affairs to Remember catered my parents' wedding more than 25 years ago, so we were thrilled to have them cater my wedding too! Nancy Lutz was a joy to work with. I appreciate her friendliness and flexibility throughout the planning process. She and the Affairs team really delivered great service and delicious food! I would highly recommend Affairs to Remember!"
- Nicole (Reception, Foundry at Puritan Mill)
"We were so pleased with the presentation, service, food, and professionalism of Affairs to Remember. Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend something to truly remember as perfect."
- Rhonda & Joe (wedding reception, Rhodes Hall)
"Thank you for all your help in making our event such a success last night. The food was great and the service was excellent. And Kerry was an absolute dream to work with. Rest assured that any event that requires an outside caterer, Affairs to Remember will be the first one called! Thanks again!"
- Susie (corporate event, Fox Theatre)
"I want to share with you that the food on Saturday was fantastic! We received so many wonderful compliments, so thank you for making us look so good. I hope we can work together next year. Your staff was courteous and helpful. The room looked wonderful and the evening was a true success. Thank you for your partnership and for such excellent customer service. Thank you!"
- Miranda (fundraiser, Buckhead Theatre)
"Wow and YUM! The food, the service, the presentation, the linens... incredible! My husband, mother, wedding planner, and I met with Chris for two different tastings and both times the food was delicious, the server was professional and on point, and Chris really knew what he was talking about and 'sold' us without being pushy! I knew walking out of the door after our first tasting that I didn't need to meet with another caterer, Affairs to Remember was the one for us! When we had our final vendor meeting a few weeks before the wedding, Chris put our minds at ease as he was able to walk my husband and I through exactly what was going to happen, when and where! On our wedding day (and thereafter), I received raving reviews on how absolutely divine the food was and the service my guests received from the staff. Thank you again and I hope to work with you again soon!"
- Heather (wedding reception, Ventanas)

- Mother of the Bride (reception, Atlanta History Center)
"I just wanted to reach out to you to thank your staff for such an amazing job last night.

Just wanted to extend my thanks for everything! Look forward to working with y'all again!"

- Jamie (corporate event, office)

"We want to thank William Neal and his amazing staff at Affairs to Remember for creating a wonderfully special reception for our daughter's recent wedding at the Biltmore Imperial Ballroom. So many guests have told us what a great time they had and how delicious the food was. This is our second daughter to marry and, when we began planning this wedding, my first person to contact was William Neal. He and his staff had helped us host an amazing wedding reception for our other daughter at the Foundry at Puritan Mill two years ago and we all knew there was no question on our choice of caterer. Not only did he have creative and delicious ideas that suited the tastes of our different daughters, he consulted with us every step along the way with countless details that helped both events flow smoothly. In addition, he is just a really kind, nice man and is someone we hope to remain friends with for a long time to come. Thank you, William!! You are the best!!"
- Mother of the Bride (reception, Biltmore Ballrooms)
"The party was wonderful. The decor was very pretty and the food delicious. I thought your wait staff did an excellent job. Thank you so much for your personal touch. You were able to understand via a few telephone conversations from California exactly what I had envisioned for the party."
- Liisa (company party, Booth Western Art Museum)
"Everything was fantastic! ...and there just aren't enough words to express how grateful we are for your help in making our day so special. Our guests raved about the food, service and decor, and we especially enjoyed meeting Lars! We are still enjoying some time away from everyone, but I would be remiss if I did not respond to your note in a timely fashion. Again, thanks for everything and I hope to run into you again in the near future."
- Bride (wedding reception, Biltmore Ballrooms)
"Thank you so much for all of your hard work on our wedding reception! I’m so glad that I trusted your design and room layout as it worked out perfectly. And you were such an amazing planner when it came to product selection, timing, etc…we could not have done this without you, not to mention how fun you were to work with! Hope to get a chance to work with you in the near future."

Thank you so much!"

"WOW. I've been saying this for a week. ‘WOW’ really sums up my take on the [July 18] event. I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work, attention to detail and commitment to the success of this event. The client was absolutely thrilled and from a producer standpoint, the execution could not have been more seamless, more incredible. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The event would not have been the same without you and I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with you all in my new life!!"
- Dana (corporate event, Fernbank Museum)
“It was awesome—absolutely perfect in every aspect. Thank you so much!”
- Ellen (corporate event, Ventanas)
"William at Affairs was wonderful to work with. We met with him a few times before our reception to give him our ideas for the event. He was able to offer suggestions and help guide us in the enormous task of feeding our guests great food in a beautiful atmosphere. On the day-of, as my husband and I stood looking at the reception space, we were so excited. The room looked better than we imagined it would! We had a candy station that Affairs crafted that was absolutely gorgeous and had everyone's attention. We also had a Mac & Cheese bar that was a huge hit! The attendants were very attentive and friendly with us and our guests. Our guests have been raving about how good the food was since the reception!"
- Bride & Groom (reception, Fox Theatre)
"Chris & the Wonderful Affairs Staff—Thank you all so much for making our wedding the yummiest wedding we’ve attended to date—and from what I heard, our guests would agree, as well! Chris, we can’t thank you enough for making our experience working with you absolutely seamless and easy—in fact, I enjoyed my time working with you!"
