Kourtney was an awesome month of coordinator for our wedding in February at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. As a couple planning our wedding from across the country, Kourtney helped make us feel confident and prepared leading up to the wedding. She handled details with the rigor and scrutiny that I would myself. Her relationship with vendors made everything easy. On the day of the wedding everything went off perfectly, and I think that can be credited to Kourtney. She went above and beyond to make sure all our details were in order and did a fantastic job with setting up our homemade centerpieces. Everyone in our wedding party was impressed by her ability to keep everyone focused and in the right place. I would highly recommend Kourtney.
Mattison’s was also a fantastic caterer. The food was delicious and our guests were so full and happy. Having our coordinator, caterer, and rentals all from one place also made everything seamless and easy. I would also recommend Mattison’s as a caterer.
The Mattison’s is the one stop shop for wedding vendors and they took care of everything. Kourtney sourced amazing services we needed for the big day. Highly recommend it. And of course, the food was great!
Working with Mattison’s and Kourtney Culler made my wedding planning experience seamless. They were flexible, organized, timely, and a pleasure to work with.
The food was amazing! We served our dinner as a buffet and everyone went for seconds. I highly recommend the short ribs- A huge hit! The cake design was gorgeous and delicious. I was consulted throughout the entire process regarding how the cake would look and what ingredients I preferred.
Kourtney was great at taking charge of the rehearsal and making sure all my vendors were on schedule. I knew I was in good hands so I could relax and truly enjoy my wedding day.
I highly recommend using Mattison’s for any event. They are the best!
Mattison’s catered our wedding in November 2019 and they were absolutely fabulous. I was paired with Catering Sales Manager, Kourtney Culler and I can’t begin to say enough about her. She literally held my hand through the entire wedding planning process – I would have been lost without her! The team worked with me every step of the way and helped deliver the experience I envisioned, all while staying in my budget. Oh, and the food was delicious 🙂 Would highly recommend!
My beautiful bride and I had the pleasure of the Mattison’s team taking care of us on our big day. We had the honor of working directly with Kourtney as our wedding planner. Every step of the way she made sure that our vision for our big day was brought to life. At any given point we knew we could look around and we could find her for the little things and trust her with the big things. She never stood in a corner somewhere and “delegated” but instead was right in the thick of it with us. Unboxing, setting up lights, hanging fabrics, making sure we had a drink in our hands or some food in our belly while being pulled a million different directions. The morning of it was so sweet to wake up to a message saying, “happy wedding day!” and beginning the checklist of ensuring both myself and the bride had everything we needed.
Now, side stepping to the food… oh my goodness. Mattison’s took care of our cocktail hour, signature drinks, dinner, BEAUTIFUL cake, and late night snack. Everything was hands down, without question, beautifully presented and tasted even better (didn’t think that was possible.) There was no sacrifice on our design. Never once did we look around and see something that we didn’t want. We brought the vision to the team and with open arms and big smiles were told, “let’s do this” Looking back on our pictures my bride and I continue to smile and talk about the greatness that is the Mattison’s team. Thank you so so so so much, it is because of this team that our day was so much more magical than we ever thought it would be.

Married at Mixon’s with Mattison’s
We were extremely picky about our food for our wedding day. We went to one tasting at Mattison’s and knew that we would love to have them cater our big day. They were very professional throughout the entire dinner service and helped with a lot of extra things. The food was delicious!!!

The food was amazing. We have people still talking about it. The staff was outstanding. They went above and beyond. Couldn’t have picked a better caterer.
We were recently married in January 2020 and worked with Mattison’s and Kourtney as our caterer and wedding coordinator for our recent wedding. From the beginning, it was extremely pleasant to work with the Mattison’s team! Kourtney was incredibly responsive, helpful, and attentive to all details during the planning process, and offered her professional recommendations and past experience to assist with ensuring the process was the best! The service and food during the reception was everything we had hoped for. The team was so professional and the food was AMAZING! We are so pleased that we chose them for our catering and coordinating needs. They exceeded all expectations.

We knew working with Mattison’s was the right choice immediately. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating from the get go and full of personality. We loved that about you guys and how willing you were to make the food match our dietary needs and wants.
People raved about the food especially the cauliflower mash which was one of our favorite items that we tried at the tasting. Everything tasted wonderful though and the staff was exceptionally friendly and again accommodating! Plus, the dessert tier was exactly what we envisioned! You all surpassed our expectations!
I would highly recommend Mattison’s to anyone needing a great catering service who goes above and beyond, and I will be sure to spread the name around!

I just wanted to take a second to email you and thank you for the incredible service you guys provided for our wedding. It went off w/o a glitch and Aleks & I had the best time.
Thanks so much to you and your team!

I want to thank you again for providing such excellent,all-around service from yourself and everyone from Mattison’s who was involved in my daughter’s wedding. Your clear, timely communication and handling of last minute changes made it so enjoyable to work with you. The wait staff were so efficient,professional and pleasant to our quests. I did not meet any of the ‘wizards in the kitchen’, but the food was absolutely delicious-perfectly prepared-and presented. Everything from the appetizers to the last cupcake (we had some with breakfast the next morning 🙂 ) was amazing! Every single guest raved about the food-many of them commenting that ‘it was the best meal they’d ever eaten at a wedding!
Please express our gratitude and praise to the entire team…if we return to the Sarasota,Siesta Key area we’re going to Mattison’s for our first meal!! I’m so glad Tammie from Siesta Key Events highly recommended you.

I wanted to write to you while this is still fresh on my mind. The team we had at the house tonight we’re just fabulous! Their service and attitudes were always accommodating and very positive. The food was just delicious and I had so many of our clients talk about how wonderful everything was. Wanted to send you a big thank you and please send on to Mr. Mattison also!
The only negative that we had to deal with during the evening were the busses not running on schedule – which was very frustrating to me after spending so much time with them organizing and confirming everything. I say all that to say our 2nd group didn’t leave resort till 9:10 pm and were supposed to be here by 8:45 pm. Your staff handled this unfortunate timing perfectly and stayed with no complaints. Just wanted to convey our thanks. If we need to pay overtime or any additional please let me know. I told Peggy I would check with you on this. Thanks again for such a fabulous evening. You all made Keith and I look very good which was very much appreciated. (Wish you had been in charge of the busses too! LOL. ). I loved having it catered. New experience for me but won’t be last. What a great way to entertain!

Our guests are still talking about the food at our wedding. Paul Mattison and his team served over 450 people the most delicious dinners. Plated sit-down dinner and no one waited for anything… and every meal was perfect. Amazing… no one ever remembers the food at a wedding… until now… Thank you Paul and your team.

Please extend my sincere thank you to your entire staff for a job well done! The food was excellent, served on time and the presentation was exactly what we wanted. The on site staff was amazing and they did everything they could do to make our party a success. It was a pleasure working with your company. I would recommend Mattison’s to anyone wanting a quality experience. Again my thanks.

Mattison’s catered our wedding reception and we couldn’t be more pleased! The food was hot, delicious, and plentiful for a buffet feeding almost 200 guests. The staff was wonderful from our tasting to the end of our wedding night!

Mattison’s did an amazing job, both in helping us coordinate our wedding reception, as well as providing exceptional service and food during our wedding reception. As soon as we booked Mattison’s to handle all of the food and drinks at our wedding reception, we were put in contact with Heidi. Heidi walked us through the process, agreed to phone conferences with us after normal business hours, and even had suggestions for types of food and linens for our reception. All of our questions and concerns were addressed very promptly and professionally. Heidi made the stressful period leading up to the wedding as stress free as possible. Mattisons was also wonderful on the day of our wedding. The owner of Mattison’s actually came out to our venue two hours before their scheduled set up time to deliver the linens to give us more time to prepare the decorations for the reception. All of this was prior to the actual wedding reception, where the food and service was perfect as well. Mattisons provided passed hors d’oeuvres for our cocktail hour which all of our guests raved about, as well as an open bar for the entire cocktail hour and reception (the service staff also went above and beyond for our cocktail hour which was not located near the bar location at our venue by walking around platters of different drinks for our guests). The seated dinner was perfect as well. Mattison’s actually brought out a portable kitchen which was set up to the side of our venue (did not negatively impact the venue’s decorations or setting). This allowed for all of our guests to be served freshly prepared entrees (which tasted amazing). Finally, there were no additional costs or extra fees for any of the service. We paid what was quoted to us from day one by Heidi. We even received a small refund from Mattisons after the event for a rental we did not end up needed. I would highly recommend Mattison’s for any catering needs!

We had a small (20 people) beach wedding and reception at our rental house on Holmes Beach and the Mattison’s team came through big time. Starting with Heidi and her attention to detail with all the planning to the on-site team lead by Katherine to the amazing food and
cake. The service and professionalism was top notch. They handled all the setup of tables, chairs, linen, etc. and cooked all the food on-site. The appetizers of crab cakes, artichoke cakes and shrimp screws were fantastic and a great lead in to the beef tenderloin and blacked grouper that was amazing. The final act was an amazing wedding cake that everyone raved about, including the leftover being the main course for breakfast the next morning 🙂 I would highly recommend them for your event, big or small.
