TESTIMONIALS

"When our family arrived in Charlotte, North Carolina for the Meet and Greet on that Wednesday evening, we were all very impressed with Verita and her staff. They would not allow us to lift a finger; they served us and cleared away our dishes. Our families and guests were simply in awe of her presentation. Her love and passion was displayed as she presented us with three breathtaking displays of visual and culinary art. The arrangements were spectacular and the food superb. When we thought it could not get any better, the location for the Saturday banquet was absolutely exquisite from the hallway to the banquet hall with bright and colorful floral arrangements and special lighting. Everything was done to perfection.

Verita and her staffwere the epitome of professionalism and elegance from the way theyV dressed to the way they served our family. Her presentation ofthe food was outstanding and the food tasted just as good as it looked. Although we were a small group of nearly 90 people, Verita and her staff treated us as if we were royalty."

"God Blessed Us with You. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. I don't know if I really have the words to honestly express how sincerely appreciative my family is for the superb job you and your team provided for us during my daughters wedding reception. I along with my guest expressed the same look of amazement as we took in the beautiful splendor of the entire room that you transformed. Everyone that knows me can attest I am not an emotional person. FYI I did not tear up at any part of my daughters beautiful wedding ceremony, however when I walked in to the reception and saw your breath taking creation I was moved to tears.

Eloquent Creations went above and beyond our expectations. About the food OMG that's the first expression everybody says. It was delicious and beautifully presented. It was the main topic of conversation during the evening. Everybody said it was the best food they ever had at any reception or gala. You and your entire team displayed such a eloquent air of professionalism, not only in your manner but your attire also. Your name really speaks of who you are. The personal touches you added and your entire vision were truly amazing. Its plain to see that you love what you do, and it shows. God has blessed you with a gift and you are blessing others with what you do. Thank You and I Know you will always be a Leader in your Profession."

"October 5, 2013 finally arrived and I was nervous, anxious and excited all at the same time. On this day I was pledging my vows before God, family and close friends of my lifetime commitment to Clay. This was indeed a BIG step in my life. Throughout the whole day I was made aware by my parents & wedding planner that the venue was absolutely beautiful and I would indeed have an "aha" moment. When the time approached for the wedding ceremony and reception, I was elated at the layout that displayed not only what was contractually agreed upon but more so it engulfed the facets of my dreams that I couldn't put into words for them to be executed. To sum my emotions in two words, "simply breathtaking". The professionalism of your staff with the coordinating colors of our wedding, amazing table decor, delicious food was a true indication that Eloquent Creations Catering & Design Services was and is a first class business. I felt like the luckiest bride in the world to witness all of these things on my wedding day!!

So in closing, Mrs. Elliott I want you to know that Clay and I appreciate all of the things you did to ensure that our wedding day would be perfect. We thank you for the professionalism displayed throughout the planning as well as on the day of the event. Personally, I will continue to take the guidance you have given me to ultimately walk in your footsteps as a business leader of choice within the hospitality industry. I commend you for your success, wish you the best in future endeavors and pray that God will continue to bless you!"

"An Eloquent Creation is exactly what you would call our wedding day after Mrs Vereda and her staff staged the most beautiful event that I have been a part of. From day one it was a match made in heaven, she was able to take a young man's vision and bring it to life without supervision or extra follow up! Mrs Vereda embodies a very attractive spirit that allows a level of calmness to flow through her communication techniques understanding that a wedding can be overwhelming and one of the most hectic occasions in a new couples life. " Eloquent Creations always demonstrated a client first mentality every step of the way while providing sound, intuitive & resourceful expertise. Even through the adversity of inclement weather that threatened the cancellation of our outdoor ceremony Eloquent Creations had a back up plan that transformed our reception venue into a beautiful place where the ceremony and reception could co-exist with minimal changes to the original setup .. Ms Vereda didn't miss a beat as she made it known that the show must and will go on! In short with all the bells and whistles from the amazing attention to detail to the customized delicious surf & turf entree for the groom, what we cherish the most will be the memories of that blessed evening that will be forever etched in our hearts that bridged the gap between a young man his bride! Mrs Vereda & Eloquent Creations will always have a special place in us and we feel we developed a true relationship that will last the rest of our lives. We are truly grateful for her operating in her gifting and being diligent in her desire to serve people through Eloquent Creations. Her talents should be shown to the world!"

"I have known Ms. Elliott for several years and have had the opportunity to observe and partake of her catering services in both professional and personal settings. Ms. Elliott and her staff are always impressive in their attire. They are courteous and personable when attending to their clients and are always on time. Ms. Elliott makes the atmosphere of her jobs conducive to good conversation and enjoyment of the food. The food she serves is delicious and served at the appropriate temperature. Her desserts, especially, are always praised. From wedding receptions to Board of Directors luncheons and meetings to exhibit openings and receptions, I have always been satisfied and impressed with the services Ms. Elliott provides and wholeheartedly recommend Eloquent Creations for any catering work they may pursue."
Bonita Hemphill

"Remembering my experience working for Ms. Elliott (the way the guests felt, the food and the atmosphere) prompted me to use her services for my company's Service Awards Ceremony. Ms. Elliott and her team did not disappoint our 200 guests and honorees. Her team arrived at the venue well in advance, decorated the serving tables and adding special touches throughout. Ms. Elliott and her staff were professional, courteous, and attentive to our needs.

One special moment that stood out for me at the event was when Ms. Elliott recognized that those of us hosting had not had the opportunity to eat with everyone else. She personally served us when the event was over, requiring us to sitdown and enjoy dinner.

As a hospital leader, I am often reminded of a quote by Maya Angelou that I share with my employees, 'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never fOlget how you made them feel.'

It was this simple act that made us feel special and I will not hesitate use her services for future events."

"I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Eloquent Creations.

Over the past several years Mrs. Vereda Elliot and her team at Eloquent Creations have catered events for Inspiration Networks -large events such as our Grand Opening and Christmas parties for our staff of 300, as well as smaller, more intimate gatherings. Each time the beautiful presentation is second only to the high-caliber meals that are served. The dishes are always delicious, served at the correct temperature. The hors d' oeuvres are plentiful and well thought-out.

Vereda works with our budget, anticipates our needs and always does this with a smile. The attitude of her team and service they provide are of a very high level. We have never been disappointed and I do not believe you will be either!"
David Cerullo-President and CEO Inspiration Networks

"I have had the honor of working with Vereda and her staff on several events over the past few years. I was introduced to Vereda through my employer who considered Eloquent Creations their "go to" caterer, using them exclusively for annual events. Eloquent Creations fulfilled various catering requests providing a wide array of foods from breakfast buffet menus to lunch menus, as well as station style events. I have been so pleased by the service provided to my employer, I routinely refer Eloquent Creations to other outside organizations. Recently, I used Eloquent Creations for a formal event and was again delighted with the outcome.

The food that Vereda and her staff provide is simply delicious. The ingredients are fresh and seasoned to perfection. The food leaves one with a "made from scratch with love and care" feeling. In addition to the superb taste ofthe food, the presentation is equally as impressive. Vereda's creative design and display talents are beautiful expressed at each and every event and make the food even more appetizing.

Perhaps the main characteristic that allows Eloquent Creations to continue to stand out among other area caterers is "service". The attention to detail is refreshingly impressive and on a level not often seen with other caterers. I have watched in amazement as the staff painstakingly prepares for a function, ensuring that everything is as perfect as it can possibly be. They are well groomed, polite, efficient and easy to work with. Vereda is constantly double-checking to make sure expectations are exceeded and is an absolute joy to work with.

In every aspect, Eloquent Creations Catering & Design Services provides a catering experience that is positive and memorable. The exceptional food, broad selection of tasteful decor and professional staff are sure to impress. I would not hesitate to recommend the company to any individual, business or organization seeking catering services. Thank You, Mary Hall"
