  • When we had to come up with a plan B for our daughter's wedding on 9/19 due to Covid Alan Perl was a God send especially since we only had a month and a half to plan a backyard wedding for 70! He was recommended by our wedding planner. I did not have time to interview other caterers or even taste his food. The food and service were excellent. We loved the baby lamb chop appetizer which he served in a vintage briefcase! Alan coordinated all of the tent, table, chair, porto potty rentals. His insight in how to layout the tents/tables to maximize the small space was priceless. Everyone raved about the food and service!
