The team at Nanina’s accommodated our every need and introduced us to some of the most important vendors we would have throughout our entire engagement. Dozens of people have told us that the cocktail hour at Nanina’s was the best they had ever experienced! Even more told us that it was the best wedding reception they had ever attended. The food was outrageously delicious. Chef Vincenzo, and Syrus Kalantary were excellent representatives of Nanina’s staff both in food preparation and in service. They were gallant and surprisingly modest, but also clearly very proud of the excellent product and service they presented to our 200 guests. Their attention to detail and their charming demeanors are wonderful examples of why the staff at Nanina’s is so impressive: they are experts at their individual crafts, however they all paid special attention to the service element that made our guests feel so “at home” and comfortable while they enjoyed the party.
Christine Wirth, our bridal attendant! I actually didn’t ever get a chance to ask Christine for anything because she always seemed to have it waiting for me before I knew I even wanted it. When I took a fun picture in the elevator with my Bridesmaids, Christine seemed to disappear like an elevator ninja in an amazingly sweet effort to not interfere. When we took a bridal party picture on the gorgeous stairs, Christine managed to get my 2 year-old niece to sit in the perfect position and laugh with a beautiful smile.
Nanina’s, we had very high expectations leading up to our wedding day and you somehow managed to not only exceed those expectations but to wow us! My husband and I had the time of our lives and we are desperately hoping that we get invited to attend another Nanina’s wedding reception as guests so we experience the same joy that all of our guests cannot stop telling us about. Well done, Nanina’s!
