My husband and I used All Seasons Catering by Shackamaxon for our wedding this past November and it was a HORRIBLE! At our first meeting, Paul Spangler, presented himself and his company to be exactly what we were looking for, however, I learned quickly that Paul does not follow through with what he presents. Paul made me many promises that he simply did not follow through on.

Throughout the planning process, Paul put on a good show and tried to seem helpful. Although, there were a few bumps along the way. Paul isn't the best communicator, especially over email. He would often ignore my questions and concerns. Also, our cake tasting was a disaster! He served us plain, stale cake that tasted horrible! We had to have a second tasting because the first was so bad.

Things didn't get too bad though until the day of the wedding. To start, Paul and his crew showed up an hour late! Due to that, he did not have time to set up my tables, centerpieces and decorations, which he had promised me that he would do. Luckily my family and bridal party were there to set everything up. I bought mason jars to be used for our signature drinks, and they never got used! In fact, no one even knew we had a signature drink, because there was no sign either. The appetizers were good, but there were multiple issues with the main course. Many guests complained their food was cold, the meat was too fatty, and the vegetarian dish was completely different than what we had ordered. The cake was the worst part! It looked NOTHING like the cake I had ordered. It was a different size, shape and color! The piping on the side of the cake wasn't finished, so my mom had to do it herself! On top of that, they never even served the cake! Paul placed the desserts outside of the ballroom so most of our guests didn't get cake because they didn't know it was there. My contract was for a three course SERVED meal and that is not what I received.

After the wedding, I contacted Paul to voice my discontent for his performance on our wedding day. Paul not only refused to compensate us in any way. he would not even apologize for his actions! It took him weeks to respond to my emails and his responses to me were very rude and unprofessional. Paul will seem like a great caterer until he receives his money, then everything will change. Suddenly he will not be so eager to help and please. I would NOT advise anyone to use Shackamaxon Catering or Paul Spangler for your event. You will only be disappointed.

Shackamaxon was such a pleasure to work with, for a 50th birthday party in Curtis Hall. If you want something special but don't know exactly what, they kick around ideas with you until you arrive at the perfect combination of cuisine, decorations, drinks, you name it. Ken is a dream. I said pigs in blankets and chocolate egg creams, and voila. I said gingerbread cookies shaped like rabbits, in pretty bags as favors, and done! The food was soooo good, and a variety of vegetarian and fish and salads and an amazing dessert table. I can't wait to hire them again, or attend one of their events as a guest. These guys are good.

I recently attend a wedding catered by Shackamaxon. Let me say that they don't offer the usual wedding reception food. They served a dish called Asian pepper Beef that was out of this world. Their crab cakes and hor derves were spectacular. My friend that held the wedding told me that they will do all your planning and are resonably priced.
