Wedding at The Smith Center, May 2015

I just wanted to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of the vendors that helped make Rj and Audrey’s wedding such a success this past weekend! It went so well and every piece and detail looked amazing. That could not have happened without all of you and I just want to tell you how much the bride, groom, and my team appreciate all of the hard work each of you provided to make their wedding possible. It was an honor to work with all of your talents and we are grateful to each of you!

Dinner at The Smith Center, December 2014 

I wanted to thank you and KT for a wonderful meal last night at The Smith Center. Our guests really enjoyed the entire experience: cocktails and appetizers in the Founders Room and the dinner. My compliments to you for working to select a menu that our guests thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to KT and both servers for their setup of the room, which was perfect, and adjusting as needed. The conference room looked spectacular, and the meal was excellent. The beef was SO tender it rendered a knife unnecessary, and the take on the Caesar salad was very creative and original, much as you promised, so please thank all those who worked to prepared this meal. Overall, I have received much positive feedback today. . . . my hats off to each of you for all you did. I hope we will have opportunities to work together in the future.

Holiday Party at the Lake Mead Event Center, November 2014

Thank you for once again making sure our luncheon was perfect. You always do and I am so grateful. KT is a prince, extremely observant and watching to ensure everyone’s needs were met. The servers were the best. . . took care of everyone and made sure the buffet line did not crowd up. . . and they were so quiet it was hard to believe they were around. Finally – yummy!  I swear the food is more impressive each luncheon we have had this year.

Offsite Reception, October 2014

We would like to thank you once again for participating in our first year anniversary. We appreciate your commitment to the families and children in our program. This event would not have been a success without the generous support you have provided us throughout the event. A special thank you for taking some time to spend with us. Please tell your team we are grateful for your support.

Offsite Party, October 2014

We can’t thank you and your team at Culinary Arts Catering enough for being so willing to bake those amazing treats for our first MJ Family Dance! Everyone raved—and you helped us make the event a huge success. We are so grateful for community partnerships like yours that help us affordably offer events like this. We look forward to doing more!

Offsite Picnic, September 2014

I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation of your staff and chef at our 75th anniversary picnic. I would and have recommended your program for anyone looking for an event location. Thank you so much for all you did to make this event so special.

Luncheons, February and August 2014

Please convey my compliments to Chef Jon Stokes for his amazing culinary talents. ULAN hosted the Chinese Buffet luncheon on February 14 and the Backyard Buffet luncheon on August 22. The presentation and the variety of food was overshadowed only by the scrumptious and savory taste of each item at both of the events. There was plenty of food offered, which was truly needed since everyone had to go back for a second helping!

I would also like to mention that the banquet manager, KT, was wonderful. He was very attentive, accommodating and pleasant to work with. The service flowed, the buffet trays were always full and during the presentation he made sure there were no noise distractions. 

And of course, it is always a pleasure to work with Sydni. We have worked together for several years and her guidance has helped us greatly with our event planning.

-Audrey Arnold, Executive Director, United Labor Agency of Nevada

My thanks and gratitude go out to the catering staff. The cooks did an excellent job in preparing great-tasting food in a timely manner.

We loved having the wedding with all of you. We would not change a thing.
