Cordial & Craft was founded in 2014
Within the last years, we have proudly collaborated with:
Cordial & Craft covered the bar for our wedding and did an impeccable job. They treated us and our guests with the greatest care and attention that can be offered at a wedding, or any event for that matter. Much love and appreciation to Heidi and her wonderful staff. She is an expert and a professional, hands down.
"Heidi and Lexie and the team at Cordial & Craft made our daughter's wedding very special indeed. They crafted specialty cocktails from our own herb garden, used our homemade preserves and honey and set-up for, served and cleaned-up after 200 guests. as well as assisting my wife in planning our daughters special day.We'd recommend them without reservation. They are vey committed to what they do and very creative in the way they do it."
"My parents and I worked with Heidi as a our month of planner for my wedding at Yesterday Spaces. I am a Project Manager at my job, and was extremely impressed by Heidi's attention to detail, attentiveness, responsiveness, and positive attitude. She has a ton of knowledge about events and weddings and helped mine run very smoothly.
"Cordial & Craft did an amazing job coordinating our wedding. In fact, I would say they worked magic. It was an out-of-the-box ceremony, with a blend of Scottish and Cherokee traditions. And the reception was carnival-themed, with an unbelievable cast of characters, including a fire-breather, a puppeteer, and a contortionist! Everything was above and beyond our expectations! Thanks you so much!"
"Heidi and Lexie will take your bar to the next level, whether you are only serving beer or offering a full bar. People are still asking me for the recipes of the signature cocktails they created for my company's holiday party!"
"Hands down the best decisions I made surrounding my wedding ceremony & reception was to hire Cordial & Craft! Heidi, Amanda, Cataldo, and Lexie provided more attention, specialized consideration, and general assistance than advertised and expected. Every interaction was pleasant, professional and helpful and resulted in my walking away absolutely confident that my wishes would be executed successfully and that I was not overlooking anything that may have otherwise contributed to an unexpected mishap on the day of the event.
Even a relaxed, indoor/outdoor, no-fuss wedding requires extensive planning and logistical considerations to ensure a smoothly flowing sequence of events while accounting for the various needs and expectations of guests. Heidi and Amanda took my preliminary plan and helped me fill-in all the missing details by sharing their previous event-planning experiences so that I could develop a comprehensive and individualized plan of my own. This happened over the course of weeks through various emails, text messages, and meetings over beer and tea. Heidi & Amanda’s love and excitement for weddings and other gatherings were abundantly clear, and they were truly invested in making my event spectacular and communicated effectively with the staff at Lake Eden.
Regarding decorations & set-up/clean-up, Amanda and Heidi’s decorations were breathtakingly beautiful from the windy hilltop ceremony to the rustic indoor barn reception. I had provided loose ideas and encouraged them to be creative. They even decorated the bride & groom cabin with flowers and wedding gifts, and they stocked the fridge with drinks & leftover food, which was an unexpected surprise at the end of the night!
Regarding photography, Cataldo made sure he knew our “must-have” shots ahead of time and even experimented with various lenses and lighting options on a site-visit to Lake Eden long before the day of the wedding. He and his photographer assistant, Lina, were on the sidelines- or right in the action at times – of every special mini-event throughout the day from pre-ceremony photos to the send-off. Cataldo and Lina were particularly gifted at working with my goofy, camera-shy groom and were directive but not demanding, relaxed but purposeful.
Regarding bartending and food service, Lexie and her supporting staff of bartenders and food attendants made sure that my guests had everything they needed from Old Fashions to assistance locating the gluten-free dessert option. The reception staff were pleasant and appeared to enjoy being part of our event!
I highly recommend Cordial & Craft for any event large or small and will forever be grateful to have had them at my wedding!"
