  • We worked with Terri Fair and CBD for our wedding at ONE North Broad this past December. I cannot say enough great things about the amazing food and service we had at our wedding. We received so many compliments from our guests. From how well the entrees were cooked, to the variety of hor d’ouerves we had at cocktail hour, and how nice and professional the wait staff was. Terri was such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire planning process. She answered all of our questions and was extremely accommodating with any requests we had. The day of the wedding I was completely stress free because from the planning process I knew Terri had every detail under control. Things ran incredibly smooth because of her. We are so very grateful to Terri and her staff for making our wedding day a dream! Hire CBD if you are looking for amazing food and service at your wedding.
