"In this world that we are passing through, We sometimes forget to say thank you. So before this moment slips away, there is just one thing I would like to say, THANKS A MILLION!"
Poem by: Paul McCann
Thank you so much for all you've done for us and the ADbys! we truly could not have done it without you. I appreciate all your ideas, hard work, passion - and patience! You made it all a reality. Thank you again, we really hope we get the opportunity to work together again in the future! - Corporate client.
Good morning. Our event was very successful. Your staff was amazing and the food was delicious! Again, thank you. Vicki.
Thank you so much for helping us plan our special day. It was absolutely perfect and you guys were amazing throughout the whole process. Thank you for doing such a great job especially on the day of the wedding! Bisher and I had the wedding we dreamed of and we are so appreciative of everything you did for us. Best, Deema.
Apologies that Saturday was so crazy that I didn't even get to chat with you or say thank you! The day was beautiful, D'Amore was perfect, your whole staff was incredible, our guests had a wonderful time, and I just wanted to thank you sincerely for all your help through the process. You were such a dream to work with, especially having to jump right in and having to pick up where Sarah left off. It was truly a relief to us to be working with you, and we were beyond impressed with your professionalism and quick communication every step of the way. We also found your recommendation of hiring a day-of coordinator to be so valuable, and we couldn't be more thrilled with how the day came together. Best wishes as your career with Thomas continues, and thank you again for being so wonderful. - Bride
All your hard work, attention to detail and patience with our revisions culminated in an amazing evening! Every bite of food was delicious! Having the mix of seated and stations was the perfect decision for the reception. Our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed their food experience and many were still commenting on the food days after the wedding. We are personally still enjoying peppermint truffle hot chocolate and only regret not bringing home more in our carryout box. We know you had a terrific team behind you. Please share our appreciation with all who were involved. Thank you for helping create memories that we will remember for a lifetime.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication on our wedding day! Everything turned out so beautifully and we had the best time! All of our guests loved the whiskey barrel bucket and pizza sliders! Thank you for recommending them to us! But not only did you help make our wedding day perfect, you helped make the wedding planning so much more enjoyable! I can’t thank you enough! I will absolutely be recommending you and the Thomas Caterers team to everyone I know!
I am thrilled with the success of our Sales Dinner at Canal 337. I couldn't have asked for any detail to be changed. What a FUN night. My guests had such an enjoyable experience. I loved hearing everyone share how much they loved the food. We need to find more ways to describe off the chart DELICIOUS. I have to say the presentation always draws me in to the Thomas experience. It made the event truly memorable. It was comforting to work alongside friends. There's quite a bit of pressure the week of sales meetings and the feedback came back overwhelmingly positive. Thank you both for your support. You made my job easy. I hope Thomas keeps finding unique venues. I look forward to more events in the future. -Deborah
FANTASTIC! As I was beginning to plan my wedding, finding a caterer that could do all of the food gluten free was incredibly important as I have Celiac disease. From the first time I talked with my event designer at Thomas, I was sold. Her ability to ease my concerns and provide so many options to choose from were a great start. When we had our tasting a few months before the wedding, the chef was available for any of our questions regarding gluten free and assuring the steps he took to make our day the best. Our event designer was great with helping plan our menu while being conscious of budget and dietary restrictions. We received so much wonderful feedback from our guests about the food. Everyone was happy with the food from appetizers through entrée and Thomas was great about making sure all the different dietary requests were addressed. I can't thank Thomas Caterers enough for helping me have the most perfect gluten free wedding!-Bride
I was at an event at Dallara Racing where your company was catering. I didn't expect too much, figured a typical catered meal, probably nothing special, just food for the masses. Boy was I wrong. Starting off with the hors d'oevres, I was really impressed by the flavor combinations and tastes, which were a bit unique. The dinner was similar. I felt everything was a cut above your typical catered meal. Combine that with a very friendly staff, and it made for a great experience.
Thank you so much for everything on Friday night. Everyone that attended is still raving about the venue and the food. Top to bottom, this was one of our best receptions ever. Dee, the service was fantastic and met every expectation we had. People loved the food, too and they loved the presentation of all of it (especially the vertical wall with the hummus and thai beef salads). Please pass along my thanks to Dave as well. He was very attentive and helpful. Lauren, you are one lucky girl because I can’t imagine that you’d ever be short on business working at a venue like D’Amore. That is by far the best place for an event in Indianapolis. If we could have paid for the sunset, we would have. It was absolutely perfect. Thank you for staying the whole night. It made us (really Kelley!) feel a lot more comfortable and it didn’t go unnoticed.Thanks also for putting up with all of our quirks. I know we can be high maintenance, but I hope you understand why. Our clients expect the very best from us and details are so, so important. Thanks again and again for everything. You both were awesome to work with and we threw an awesome party together!-Jackie, Corporate Client
First off, I would like to commend you and the Thomas staff for an outstanding evening for Hillary and Brian. Every detail that you took care of for us and the work ethic that Thomas instills in their staff, is unparalleled to most. The meal was beautiful, hot and delicious. The servers began pouring wine as soon as the guests were seated. The cake came out directly after entrees were finished. The servers lit the candles when I asked. I could keep going on and on. Most of the details that are important to me as a planner, would go unnoticed to others. But, not to me. Those details are what make the evening pleasurable and complete. Many do not know how difficult it is pulling an event together with every little detail. It's not just about the meal! And, I know, it is by far the most taxing physically, in addition to everyone keeping their cool without anyone realizing the stress that may be involved. Thank you! Thank you! -Gina Howard
Thank you so much for all of your help and organization for our wedding! The decorations were perfect and the food was amazing! We have received so many wonderful compliments! Thank you for all of your hard work and making our wedding so special! Thanks! -Bride and Groom
As a seasoned event planner with a background in catering and restaurant management I have experienced quite a bit in the industry having worked with many vendors over the years. Thomas Caterers of Distinction is truly a top notch company with a flair for creative menus and exceptional services. Our company began working with Kelly and Vince Early many years ago for various corporate events, then with a call to assist us in hosting our employee banquet one year they rose to the top and showed just how talented Thomas Caterers was then (is now). At the time we had out grown our space and decided to host that year at our newest property, a historic hotel undergoing renovations, which would not be completed in time for the banquet. Despite not having any functional kitchen or other facilities that would make it convenient to cater a plated dinner to a large group of several hundred, Kelly and Vince lead their team, held them to highest standards, thus pulling off an extraordinary feat with a meal that folks rave about to this day! So much so we continued to have Thomas Caterers at company events. As our company grew, Kelly and Vince continued to put on amazing events and handled any logistics with ease and confidence. Most recently I had the honor of working closely with them on our company's 50th Anniversary celebration. Once again, the logistics of catering a hot buffet meal to over 6, 000 people in a Fieldhouse without any running water, real plumbing or even electrical service did not deter this remarkable team. We hosted a remarkable celebration and could not have done so without their expertise. I have the greatest respect for Thomas Caterers of Distinction; they are truly worthy of the ‘Distinction’ associated with the company name. Nicole, Cook Events and Meetings
I wanted to write to congratulate you and your staff for the magnificent job all of you did to make the event memorable for all who attended. I received universally glowing comments from every guest with whom I spoke. Not only did the venue look terrific, Dee Haddad and your staff should be congratulated as they managed to not only meet, but greatly exceed our already high expectations. The food was prepared and served perfectly by your staff, who all behaved in an efficient and professional manner, always treating our guests with the utmost courtesy. Also, please pass on to Dave my thanks for his part, as he was always accessible and vigilant without being the slightest bit intrusive. Dallara and Thomas Catering worked seamlessly together to impress a group of very discerning people from all over the country whose standards are generally quite high. Again, please pass on my thanks to your entire staff, and rest assured that when asked about a caterer, Thomas Catering will get Mary Jane and my highest recommendation. Thanks again for making an event of great importance to us so special. Best regards, Dave Lyons FOB
Thanks again for taking on our client appreciation event at Flat 12. I got the feeling (and some nice feedback) that our guests had a great time, enjoyed your food and the atmosphere we created for them there. I really appreciated your unique suggestions and attention to detail in getting everything setup and in getting us through the evening. I would highly recommend you and Thomas Caterers!
Thank you so much for your amazing work catering our wedding. You and your team did a fabulous job and were the talk of the town. Everyone enjoyed the meal – especially the appetizers. We could not have been happier with the set up, the service and the best tasting food we could ever have imagined. You met all of our expectations above and beyond.Thank you! Bride and Groom
Thank you for a mouth-watering evening filled with course after course of delicious and beautiful gastronomy! People are still raving about the food from our June 29th wedding at the Scottish Rite. Hopefully you captured lots of fun photos of all the creative hors d’oeuvres! Thanks again for everything. Ashley and Josh Hash Bride Bride and Groom
How to thank someone adequately for helping make your dreams
come true? Words cannot express how thankful Evan and I are for all the effort you put toward making our wedding so special. There is truly not one detail we would have changed. I would also personally like to thank you for the little Disney touches. (The hidden Mickeys were fantastic!) We will always be incredibly thankful toward you. With Thomas behind the wheel, we had no worries whatsoever. Thank you! Love, Sarah & Evan Bride and Groom
Andy and I want to thank you for everything you and your team did to make our big day absolutely amazing. You left no detail to chance, and we have received so many compliments on the food and impeccable service! All the special touches you added for us as a surprise were just so lovely! Over the moon, Anne Hammond Bride
Fantastic, beautiful, detailed and everything you do best event last week! Thank you so much for everything you did for our Marion County Farm Bureau event and glad we could partner again this year! People LOVED the food and could not get over the cider and beverage carts! I know I can always trust you to do something fabulous and I love that. Corporate Client Oct 2012
I cannot thank you enough for all of your help with our wedding! You were truly amazing throughout it all, and made me feel like everything was taken care of. From the planning of signature drinks, chair covers, and tastings, to making the big day run so smoothly, you, above anyone I worked with, were truly the best! Thanks for the compliment on the ballroom. Of course we are biased, but we thought it was absolutely beautiful! We loved every little bit of our wedding! The day was so perfect and we had a complete blast! So again, thank you so much for making our wedding day so great! I almost wish I could plan another party so I could work with you again, hehe! :) Kristin (bride)
My hope for that day was to help my daughter have a wedding day that would provide great memories for the rest of her life. No matter how much planning takes place, though, there's always a concern that something was forgotten, or something will simply go wrong. In fact I'm sure there are very few events where at least some detail isn't forgotten or overlooked.
I'm not a person that's bashful about expressing my disappointment when people I hire don't perform. However,I've had 10 days to think about Lindsay's wedding now, and I honestly can't think of a single negative relating to D'Amore Events, Thomas Caterers, or any of the staff that worked at the wedding. Every member of my family, including Lindsay and her husband Phil, and every guest that I've spoken to, had nothing but positive things to say about their experience, and we received many comments from people who were simply blown away by their experience that night. I cannot think of a single thing I would change about our experience with your company and your employees. You can be very proud of them and the way that they represent Thomas Caterers. Thank you for helping to make a very special day even more so.
Just want ou to know what a great job the crew of Shelby, Eliott, Dave and Lynette did at our dinner Sunday Night. We know they were there because everything went well, but they were nearly invisible and quietly efficient. Kudos to you as well for guiding us through the planning stages and carrying out the plan. The evening reinforced our thoughts about Thomas Catering...alway a good idea! Susie
Everyone loved the food and the service was awesome. I've had a lot of compliments on how great it all was. Your Team did a great job at making sure we were perfect and asking if we needed anything else. We really appreciated that. We also loved the candy buffet, you did an amazing job. I wouldn't change anything. It was all amazing! My dad was also very impressed and it's hard to impress him. ha! I can't thank you enough! It was perfect! It went so fast- It's sad it's all over. Thank you, Rebecca Bride
What a flawless evening you, the supervisor and your wait staff presented to us! Not only were the tables lovely – laid with damask cloths – but each favor was carefully placed. We heard so many compliments from our guests on the food and service and the bridal party was so pleased to be pampered with drinks and hors d’oeuvres before they made their grand entrance! Sam and Chad told us that they received a 2nd hot meal as theirs grew cold as they greeted their guests. Any fears we might have had of misplaced wine flutes or a lost serving knife were quickly allayed. Everything was waiting for us at the end of the evening – even my truly misplaced pashmina! Your staff even helped us load our van. The room looked beautiful, the food was delicious, your staff attentive and personable – a perfect evening. We would highly recommend Thomas Caterers you did serve with Distinction! Parents of Bride
There are no words to express how appreciative I am to you for everything you did. The event was flawless and the food was outstanding and creative. It was just what Bonnie wanted. You and your team are amazing. Thank you so much! Katie Vaughan
Ryan and I wanted to extend a sincere thank you for all your hard work and help making our reception a night to remember! We received many many complements on the beauty of the night (building, flowers, room set up), staff attentiveness, fabulous food and cake and the great DJ/music and wedding video/slide set up! There were so many people who complemented every area and even asked for contact info for future needs. Know that we would absolutely recommend any of you in the future! Thanks again and please let us know if there is anything we need to do or settle up on! Kara and Ryan Gootee
THANK YOU for everything you all did for us. James and I had an amazing time on Saturday and can't tell you how many people came up to me to say what a wonderful event it was. I even had a (very type A) vegetarian friend come up to say she was thoroughly impressed that you all remembered she was vegetarian and served her that meal without having to ask. :) From her, that's quite the compliment!! In all seriousness, you all made our wedding such a seamless event for us and we didn't have to worry about anything. As a bride who likes to make lists and be in control, I really appreciated having someone I could trust with everything! And James was incredibly impressed with Keith for making sure the beer got to the wedding. We should have booked with you in the first place, and I'll be sure to sing your praises in online reviews. Thank you for everything!!! Even at the end when I was horse from talking and too exhausted to think clearly, your staff made sure that our personal champagne flutes were promptly washed and repackaged for us to take home with us. Again, thank you! Oh - and the cake and the food was DELICIOUS! So many people came up to compliment us on it. :) Thanks again. We couldn't possibly have had a better experience with you. Thanks! Emily
I just wanted to send you a thank you for a job well done and an outstanding reception! I was absolutely blown away by the food quality and service from your team. Everything for the evening was outstanding and our guests absolutely raved about the venue and food. I very much appreciated your willingness to try to find gift bags and enlisting your team to help with the headphones. I think the absolute most popular item of the night was the chocolate covered velvet cake bites! I do not even particulary like Chocolate and I had about 5 of them:) I have also had colleagues say they would die for more of them! In all seriousness, is there any way I could get a box of them? Do you have information where I could order? Thanks again for everything as it was a real pleasure!! Billy Inglis
I just wanted to let you know that the food was excellent for our wedding. Everyone enjoyed everything and we got lots of compliments. The one funny instance was that someone thought the soup was actually salad dressing and poured it all over their salad before they realized what was going on. Thanks again and I will definitely be recommending Thomas Caterers if anyone I know needs catering done. Also, I would like to give a special thank you to our personal waitress Shelby that helped out a lot.
Thank you for choosing to cater our wedding. Our day could not have been flawless without you. The food and drinks were impeccable. We sincerely appreciate you and your teams hard work and attention to detail. We had a blast! Sincerely, The Kaetzel's Married
Thank you so much for all of your time and thought that went into making our wedding day so special. Working with you made the planning process and the entire day so much easier, and more importantly, so enjoyable! You took care of absolutely everything and I felt so comfortable knowing you were in charge. I honestly didn't worry about a thing... and that's a difficult thing for me to do :) Its been such a pleasure to work with you, and you can certainly bet that we'll be recommending you to everyone we know. I hope to work with you again in the near future. Thanks again for everything and I hope to see you soon! Brooke (McKinney) Klinker
We are back from our honeymoon, and we want to follow up with you regarding all of your hard work for our wedding. We just can't thank you enough for all that you did to make things run perfectly on our wedding weekend, and to allow us to relax and simply enjoy ourselves. I am amazed at all of the things you quietly accomplished. From cleaning up the decorating mess I left in the dining room (I am so sorry!) and finishing the decorating, to running to McDonalds to accomodate our unexpected little guest, to putting everyone at ease with your huge smile, to fixing a wedding cake enjoyed early by an overzealous 7 year old...I just can't thank you enough. And all of that when you personally were ill!! Dave was a pure delight to work with as well. Not only did you take care of all of the above...but nearly every guest we have spoken to has raved about the food and service. I have never heard anyone rave about wedding food or service before...amazing! I would love to share our exceptional experience with whomever you report up to, and, if helpful, in the form of a testimonial. Please let me know who I can share our feedback with in your organization. You are simply the best! Abby
