“I look forward to working with Kathy G & KG Designs every time and rest easily knowing the events they produce with me will always be a huge success!”
Anita Kanellis, Wedding Planner/Owner AK Bridal

“Last night was perfect! I had SO many compliments on the food – from folks that go to lots of social events.  The food was different and delicious – loved the shrimp balls, sugared cranberries on mint (how festive), pork balls in pastry, and of course all the chocolate – peppermint cups and the peanut butter fudge!  The table looked beautiful.  Mister Albert and the other server were terrific, passed food, helped with bar, cleaned up a spilled drink, and kept table looking full. Everyone had a super time and really ate.  I didn’t have quite as many as I hoped so nice to have goodies at work today. Your servers packed them up for Judy and me. It is always wonderful working with you. ”
 – Jeanne Jackson, Womens Fund Birmingham

“I just wanted to personally thank you for the wonderful day you helped make for Morgan on Saturday. Everything from the table setup to the linens to the AMAZING food was beyond our expectations. I had so many guests compliment the food. I also wanted to compliment the wait staff. They were so professional and friendly to my guest. I could not have asked for a better presentation. Let Kathy know that I was probably asked and I told over 100 people Saturday who did my catering for the wedding. Of course, most were not surprised when I told them “Kathy G”. Thank you again – you were a joy to work with.”
– Lisa Faulkner

“I could hardly take it all in when I entered the room.  I could not have been more pleased.  The food was delicious and beautifully presented.  In particular, I got many comments on the bourbon glaze your chef made for the the chicken and people raved about the hors’d oeuvres. Natalie, Gail and Kathy thank you for the best quality and best service I could have hoped for.  You were great to work with and the creations by you and your staffs were excellent.”

“I just wanted to let you guys know everything was amazing for our wedding. You guys did such a great job of working with our limited budget and making it beautiful. The food and decor that y’all provided was more than I ever expected.
I have heard only good things about how everything tasted( it was delish) :) Thank you again! ” – Jessica Bowles

“I wanted to express my thanks for everything for the small  dinner party we had at the Turners’ home on June 6th.  I’ve  used quite a few caterers over the years and I know I never have to worry when  you and your staff are helping me with an event.  I so appreciate  everything you and your staff did to make it a success last night.  I’m  not sure if you have talked to the servers & chef that we had, but we had  another ‘memorable’ dinner party.  While I was concerned about the chance  of rain all night, shortly after the guests arrived, the power went out and  was out all night.  I heard that your staff went above and beyond working  in the dark last night.  I’m relieved that we didn’t pull everything  inside since the rain held off until everyone was finishing dessert! ” – Leila A Deep, Cabaniss, Johnston, Gardner, Dumas & O’Neal LLP

Folks, that’s service.”

– David G. Hill

Hands down that was the BEST rehearsal dinner EVER! Thank you for everything! My husband, Larry, LOVED his steak and mine was as tender as butter plus the chicken absolutely divine.
