Dear Mountain Magic:

    Hi, my name is Patty Downs, and I attended a party at Norma and Ranson Webster's on New Year's Eve. I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job your catering company did on the food and service. The presentation was beautiful, the food delicious and the staff was wonderful. Your staff was pleasant, helpful and smiled. The chilean sea bass was to die for. You guys did a great job!

Dear Mountain Magic:

    It was sensational! Beautiful presentation and very professional. People were raving about the food even those that did not usually eat fish loved the sea bass. Thank you for your professionalism.

Dear Mountain Magic,

    The Rouda family would like to send you our heartfelt THANK YOU, for making our wedding weekend such a success!!!!!. Peter, the food was delicious, plentiful and colorful. ... your staff were indeed great, courteous and very willing to make all of our guests feel as they were being taken care of in our own home. This service blossoms under your "hands on", approach to all of the details that constitute an incredible event. As an event coordinator I was in two spaces, one being the mom and the other being the coordinator. So it was wonderful to be able to turn over the reins to my staff and yours. They worked together as a team, which I do appreciate. When one does become a guest, it was exactly what we all envisioned a truly "enchanted forest wedding".

Very truly yours,

Sue, Ron, Meika and Chris

  Dear Mountain Magic:

   I wanted to tell how delicious and lovely the food and buffet was for Amy's wedding on September 8th. All our friends complimented the food and I thought you'd like to hear this. And everyone said the table was beautiful. We are so glad we used Mountain Magic and I'd be happy to give you and Peter an A+ recommendation! Thank you so much for a great job.

Hi Mountain Magic,

    Thank you very much for your oustanding work last Saturday evening at the Thunderbird Lodge for our Chapitre de la Vigne en Fleur. Your crew was outstanding! The food, the presentation and the service was terrific. Every comment that i heard was positive - thanks to your efforts.

    I look forward to using your fine company again in the near future.

    In vino veritas.

Hi Mountain Magic,

    Just a short note to thank you again for all of your help in planning Carey and Bobby's wedding. The food was simply fabulous! Some comment from the guests:  "Best food I have ever had at a wedding!" "Haven't had oysters like those since I visited France!"  "The hor d'oeuvres were fantastic." "The wait staff was so courteous and polite." "The service was superb. My wine glass was never empty!" "Everyone was sooooo nice!"

    If you ever have a parental request for a recommendation, you may certainly give them my phone number.

    Rob and I arrived home at 4 AM Friday morning and I spent most of the weekend sleeping. I was not quite prepared for the emotional landing that occurs after such an event. I was simply exhausted. I must admit I was also in a bit of a daze during the actual event. There were so many things going on at once and so many people asking questions and giving directions that my brain went into the Zzzzzz mode. I would never have survived without you wearing your "coordination" hat.  My only regret is that we were unable to use the sound system because of the wind. Perhaps Event Masters could come up with some future invention that would encase the equipment and shield it from the wind!

    Since Carey is our only daughter, I shall not be calling upon you again for wedding planning. However, we have all fallen in love with Lake Tahoe and I know we will visit again. Do not forget me because you may very well pick up the phone one day and hear my voice inviting you and your husband to dinner!

PS. Guess what movie was playing on our return flight? "The Wedding
Planner!"  It made me think about going into business! Not really!!

Dear Mountain Magic,

We would like to thank you and Peter, and congratulate you on a job well done for our party on June 22 at Sugar Pine Point Park. Virtually every guest there personally complimented us on your work and on the professionalism of your staff. We all loved the hors d'oeuvres selections and the beautifully prepared buffet. Please feel free to use us as a reference for your future clients.

Thanks Again,

Dear Mountain Magic,

I cannot say enough good things about Chloe’s Bat Mitzvah dinner.  Once again everyone told me what a wonderful party we had and couldn’t get over how wonderful the food and service was. Six weeks later people still stop me at the market or down town and tell me how wonderful the food was.

Firstly, you and your staff are wonderful to work with.  Thanks for paying attention to every detail for me.  Also, a thank you for finishing up the decorating that I was unable to finish.  Your staff work hard,and they are professional, polite, and easy to work with.

Secondly, I would like to thank you for being so flexible and adding your Chilean Sea Bass to our menu.  It got rave revues.  I appreciate the way Peter uses only the freshest ingredients and cooks the way I would, if I could.  The children’s table was wonderful and they loved having their own buffet table as well.

I love working with the both of you.  You make everything look and taste beautiful.
Deon and Peter

"What a lovely job the place looks wonderful. I was looking for the scarlet feather as you look as though you stepped out of the book 'The Scarlet Feather'.....

Dear Mountain Magic,

"Again, the food was excellent, especially the dessert!!! We hope you had enjoyed yourselves as well.

Thank you both and Caroline for the beautiful floral arrangement. It is magnificent with all those fragrant daylilies and birds of paradise. And thank you especially for the wine. It was very thoughtful and considerate.

We are very encouraged with the positive response to establishing a Knights of the Vine chapter here in Tahoe. Ernie is following through with the organization. We plan to have fun."

Love, Margaret
