Best of 2014: Lisa Dupar & Company + The Invisible Hostess

Berry tarts made by Lisa Dupar Catering

Best Catering:

Lisa Dupar & Company

Known for: Using the freshest local and seasonal products to produce a customized catering experience.

Words of Wisdom: "Make a list of shared values together," suggests marketing and business developer Bo Dupar. "Then, when someone gets hot under the collar over a linen color being wrong, going over budget or the guest list not being all inclusive, go back and look at that list of shared values and be reminded of the real purpose of the ceremony."


Best Bar Service

The Invisible Hostess

Known for: A reputation as a reliable and responsible bar service that includes a holistic approach and attention to detail that goes beyond the booze.

Words of Wisdom: "Did you know that some rental companies deliver ice? If you're renting equipment, add ice to the order and you've just saved yourself a trip to the store (not to mention your back)," says owner Sheena Kalso. "Our favorite rental piece: wheeled ice caddies, which hold 126 pounds of clean drinking ice."
