  • Since our wedding, I have received an incredible number of compliments on our food. It truly was delicious and showcased all that Vermont has to offer. But, equally important, the overall level of customer service that we received from Let's Pretend was spectacular. From helping us plan out the timing of the whole day, to the menu, to all the little questions we had along the way, to the execution of the big day itself, everything was flawless and every single employee we interacted with was extremely nice, flexible, professional, and accommodating. They are lovely people who make amazing food and who really know how to bring an event together. They gave us great advice backed up with tons of experience. I cannot recommend them more highly.
