A Little About Peppers Catering
For over 30 years Pepper’s Artful Events has been wholeheartedly dedicated to creating unforgettable memories, by artfully and passionately expressing our client’s vision. From our roots as a gourmet shop and café to the full-scale, full-service company it is today, we (John and Susan) have cultivated a culture of likeminded artists who share their purpose and passion of helping people celebrate life.
We take every event personally and enjoy making it special and stress-free, even if that means sewing on a last minute button or standing in for a late usher. From a delicious and beautiful menu, dreamy desserts, and customized bar services, to stunning florals and enchanting ambiance, our talented artists design original events that fit within our clients budget and vision. Our Event Managers delight in sharing your vision and incorporating your unique personality into all the details of your event, so that you can enjoy your day. From weddings to galas and holiday parties to baby showers we are here to make your event one to remember.
What’s the best advice you can give someone looking to hire a professional in your field?
Do your research! Each vendor has a specific range of prices and services, from photographers and entertainment to wedding planners and caterers. To find the best fit for your wedding and budget, you can’t rely solely on price comparison. The benefits vendors offer and their quality of service play a big role in their pricing. You must compare both apples to apples. Almost all companies are on social media which can give you great insight into their day to day and the opportunity to see past events. Look at sites like Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram to give a view into the company. Also, check out their reviews on sites like Wedding Wire, The knot, and yelp which will tell you about past client experiences. There are many ways right at your fingertips to research your potential vendors.
What’s a fond event memory that you have?
Over the past 30 years, John and I have made so many cherished relationships with our employees, our clients and our business partners. It has been so heartfelt for us to have a number of employees who have worked with us in the past, moved on in their careers and then take the time to come back and say how meaningful their time here at Peppers was. We have a saying here that, “ it’s all about learning and growing together”.We create memories every day and feel fortunate that the passion we as a team exude for creating meaningful celebrations is shared with our clients and business partners. We have developed so many lasting relationships. It gives real meaning to what we do.
Any interesting stories about how you got into your profession?
For both John and I our beginnings were pretty straight forward. We both have a passion for delicious food, and creating an environment where it can be celebrated.I think the interesting story is how peppers has evolved over 30 years from a food to go retail shop to the artful full experience we offer our clients today. It has kept our lives full and blessed.
