praise for tco
"the catering outfit was amazing and we got so many compliments on the food! walter and the team are amazing and were super flexible with us - they partnered with one of our guests (who has smoked meat/collaborated with them in the past) to meet our vision of having as many friends involved in the details of our day as possible. we also used courtney as our coordinator, which definitely helped the day move seamlessly. she did an amazing job managing the other vendors and problem solving when changes needed to be made. they had a box of food/champagne packaged up for us and placed in our getaway car, which was such a special treat! we could not recommend more highly!! thank you!"
