There isn’t enough room on any forum to truly express how positive our experience has been with Swan Lake Caterers. We looked at a few locations before stumbling upon Swan Lake Caterers and honestly, it was the menu that pulled me to this location. Being that we are both vegan, it was important to us to have more than just a veggie tower as an option for our dinner. When we met Charlie, our minds were made up rather quickly. Charlie not only understood our needs for vegan food but helped us plan an entirely vegan menu for the whole event which blew the socks off ALL of our guests – I mean it, people who’ve never tried vegan food completely blown away by the depth of flavor and things that can be done to transform plants. He also made us feel like we were becoming part of a family, how our needs were important, and it was obvious that this was NOT another “Long Island Wedding Factory” (I’m sure most of you reading these reviews know exactly what I’m talking about). Not only is Charlie such a large selling factor at Swan Lake, but the team of people he’s helped put together both within Swan Lake, the vendors he recommended, all of them made the planning and the wedding itself more special than I could have ever imagined. Elena, our maitre’d, did an incredible job with the decor. She took our decorations and theme and transformed the space further than I could have done myself. On the day/night of our wedding, Elena and our Bridal attendant Gill took extra special care of us. In this case, they had 2 brides to attend to, and they made it seem so easy! They made sure we always had a drink in hand (if we wanted to) and ensured that we had time to eat throughout the evening. We felt like royalty.
Additionally, we booked our wedding a year before covid and were one of the couples who had to push our date out due to the restrictions. What could have been an opportunity for the venue to take advantage of us, turned into even more proof that Swan Lake Caterers was the right decision for us. They were there to give us updates every step of the way and were very flexible as we tried to figure out our new date(s).
Swan Lake Caterers is the perfect place to get married, in my opinion. The people there are passionate about what they do and go above and beyond to meet the needs of their couples. The venue is beautiful, the (new) outdoor space was awesome for our cocktail hour, and the inside was clean, modern, and with all the decor – exquisite. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice!
