  • Lindsay from CBD was very uplifting and inviting from our first meeting. She demonstrated a great amount of flexibility when it came to touring the Michener and coordinating the tasting with our many family members. The tasting was an amazing experience and did not compare to tastings that many of our friends had with their catering companies. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our wedding due to COVID-19 so we were unable to see our event come to fruition however out of all of our vendors the CBD team was the most accommodating and understanding. They tried to provide us with many solutions but when we realized we were not going to be able to reschedule they worked with us to come to a mutual agreement. I couldn't recommend CBD and especially Lindsay at the Michener more for your big day!
