We used High Point for catering and rentals for our wedding of 175 guests at Rocklands Farm. Geoff and Jocelyn were our contacts, and they were fantastic. They were warm and friendly throughout, and were reasonable and flexible with our requests. We loved that it's very much a family business with them. On the day of, they were always available, but stayed out of sight, quietly working in the background to make sure everything ran smoothly. They also worked very well with our planner. We liked that they were a one-stop shop for anything we needed, from catering to decorations to furniture rentals to shuttle buses, to A/V equipment. The food was delicious. We did classic BBQ, mac n cheese, potato salad, etc. and our guests loved it. High Point also made sure we had more than enough booze, which is important -- never want the bar to go dry at a wedding. Some of the rentals (especially linens) were expensive, and there were a few unanticipated costs, but overall, I felt that Geoff and Jocelyn were very fair with their prices. More importantly, they were a pleasure to work with and I had complete confidence they'd make our day go smoothly, which was worth any extra money. I highly recommend High Point for any event.

Jocelyn and her team at High Point made for a perfect (and I don't use the word lightly) and stress-free wedding day. The farm was gorgeous and made for a beautiful backdrop to our rustic, relaxed theme. The team was very flexible and accommodating to any random ideas or visions that I had for the reception. Plus, I absolutely loved that we got several services in one: DJ, venue, and catering. It's been almost two weeks since we got married, and people are still telling me how much they loved the laid-back atmosphere High Point helped to create. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them for a wedding at all!

I was planning a wedding in only 2 months and was pressed to find a full service caterer who was able to do our wedding on my aunt's farm. I contacted High Point and our sales rep, Jennifer, was a huge help as I was overwhelmed and had little idea what I was doing. She came up with great ideas and gave us numerous options and suggestions. She even came out to the farm one weekend to help us figure out what would work best with the venue and what we might need. We came up with a menu catered very much to our specific likes. At the tasting we were given the option to alter or tweak any of the items. I was even able to give them my own personal macaroni and cheese recipe that they gladly made. (And it was just as good as my own!) Our day of coordinator, Christa, was just as helpful as Jennifer. We ended up doing a lot of work ourselves, using our own tables and chairs and such but Christa and the team worked so well with our own stuff. I never felt like they thought we deserved less service just because we opted to cut some corners by doing a lot of stuff ourselves. Also, at the last minute, my hay bale vendor (for our ceremony seating) fell through but High Point stepped in and took this over for us and relieved a lot of my stress and worry. And, on the day of, the barn was a bit warmer than anticipated so Christa offered to send her "guys" back to High Point to pick up some high powered fans to help cool the space down. Lastly, the food was great! Since we were without kitchen facilities, I was a bit worried the food might not turn out as well as if we had a kitchen, but I was so pleased when I tried the dishes that they were even better than they had been at the tasting and had just the right adjustments made from our requests at the tasting. I received numerous compliments on the food from our guests. All in all, if I ever have an event again, I will happily use High Point and will also gladly recommend them to anyone who asks.

Jocelyn Barker was my event coordinator and she and High Point Events were fabulous. Over the entire planning process they were responsive and kind, always happy to help and go out of their way for us. Our wedding was wonderful and they were incredibly attentive and the food was excellent. They truly made my wedding a success. I am grateful for choosing them as our caterers and would definitely recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in the area.

The venue was very flexible as far as ideas in decoration and really working with you on the price. They provided pretty much everything that you needed. However, some of those things were a little pricey. for example, the table cloths were 24 dollars a piece, I found them for a cheaper price online and I was able to give them to my aunt who plans wedding all the time. What I did not like was, my POC was eating the food while the reception going on, my husband told me that she had food everytime he saw her and a couple of people complained about that. The shuttle service was perfect, however, the shuttle driver told our guests that he was only making one trip from the hotel to the reception, when it was supposed to run continuously. I saw the shuttle three times that night and there was a 4hr minimum to book it. Overall though, it was a good experience...it was my wedding day and we just wanted to have fun.

The setup of the pavilion plus the beauty of the gazebo, made us fall in love with the venue. After our first meeting, 3-4 months passed with unanswered emails from our coordinator. We contacted the owner who told us we would be working with a different coordinator. We set up a meeting with our new coordinator (C). At this meeting along with C, we met G, their sales coordinator. G came in to discuss other possible options, including switching our site from C to D. We asked him the pros and cons, and why he wanted us to switch and he mentioned he wanted to be able to book site C during the day. We were told that only our event would be happening at our time. Being the flexible people that we are, we switched to site D. At the time, site D had a 30 ft by 60 ft cement patio. G promised that the patio would be increased to 40 ft by 70 ft, and a tent would be permanently placed over the patio by early spring. Over the next few months, we took a couple visits to site D and nothing had been done. Being concerned, we contacted C about our concerns, we were assured that everything was right on schedule. Our wedding date was July 12th and come June 12th we hadn't heard much from High Point. We decided to take a visit to site D and to our surprise it looked exactly like it did in February. Being concerned even more, we were assured everything was right on schedule. On June 28th, we received an email from C to meet. On July 2nd, as we drove to site D we were expecting to see a bigger patio with a tent on top, and to our surprise, it was exactly the same as before. We were assured everything would be set up and ready to go by July 12th. At the July 2nd meeting, we were informed that another wedding would be happening at the same time as our wedding at site C. We were blown away! Not only were we told we would be the only event, but that we would have to share a bathroom trailer with the other wedding. We opted to pay for our own. In the end the day was great.

Here is the scenario, Christa was awesome at the taste testing and provided the quotes and explaining the contract. She was going to be our coordinator. First meeting at the venue.. no show from anyone. Bob, the owner apologizes stating there was an emergency and we reschedule. Second meeting. Bob and Cathy show up. Cathy is our new coordinator (no communication of change from Christa) Open discussions and we felt comfortable with High Point. Third meeting at venue with Bob and Cathy went well with no need to worry. Fourth meeting was met with resistance as we needed to change from a gazebo to a tent layout. This is where we saw the issues. No communication, just directing on how it is going to happen. Rehearsal meeting - Originally we were told Cathy was not planning on being there and had to check with Bob to make sure she would come. Tent set to arrive on Tuesday, arrived on time. Panels were 4x8 but the poles were only 7 feet leaving it looking ragged. Dance floor was to be installed later but was installed on Tuesday with the fear of the grass being damaged. Needed a generator to do a sound check on rehearsal day. $45 delivery charge to be added. After heavy discussion, fee was waved and it was delivered along with the tables and chairs. We found that the designed tent layout would not work and had to redesign it. If they arrived as planned (2 to 3 hours before ceremony) it would have been delayed leaving us stressed. Rehearsal day and ceremony: Cathy came seeming to have an attitude and wedding party felt uncomfortable as she told us what to do. As groom, her body language and voice tone displayed disdain as I spoke to her. She was rude to the cooks and helpers and spoke unprofessionally to them around my family. Her "bedside" manners were not appreciated. After all of this, we made it through and our guests didn't not experience what we had to go through. We were successful despite Cathy. Ceremony/reception = successful. We needed Christa.

Dear Ellen and Jon, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts as we conducted our own extensive review of your wedding. We have shared your concerns with everyone involved in planning events at High Point. We regret that the planning process leading up to the wedding did not meet your expectations. Although we do not fully agree with the entirety of the conclusion you reached in the review, we know your comments are both sincere and well considered. Clearly, our greatest sadness is that there was such a conflict and dissatisfaction with the event planner for your wedding. As I said on prior occasions, I thank you for taking the time to engage is this discussion and we wish you both the very best. Bob Egan

If you want to eat molding bread and work with rude people this is the place for you. First off we were working with Geoff and he was great. If I asked for something he would he give or he would respond in an polite way saying it couldn't be done. Then something happened with Geoff halfway through and no one at high point contacted me. I had to contact them asking what was going on cause I hadn't heard anything in a while. Then Christa took over. She knew nothing about my wedding at all and if I wanted to do something she was always against it. She acted like it was her own wedding. At this point I almost changed caters, I should of, but it was too late. The one person from that company that was great was Natasha who did everything on our wedding day. By the way yes they changed our person once again. On our wedding day dinner was late, like an hour late. Then I found out they served moldy bread to my guest. When my mother-in-law called they did nothing about it. If you choose them be ready to go through hell.

I tried dealing with the guy who runs High Point four times from 2010 to 2012 and each time he was the most annoying, scatterbrained "businessman" ever. I gave up went elsewhere, and you should as well.
