Hello Ryan,

I just wanted to let you know that Conner and the rest of the staff did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding reception last Saturday night.  In fact, from the start of planning until the last guest left, you guys have been so amazing to work with.  The food was delicious, and the staff was attentive, kind, and just plain fun to be around.  I didn't get much time to chat with the bartenders, but the two young girls serving were adorable!  I only have positive things to say, and I cannot think of anything that could have been improved upon.  I will be in touch when Daughter #2 gets married.... we just have to find her a man first!
You made our reception a huge success and we are very grateful!!
- A. Smith, June 2017

Hi Ryan – a huge thank you to you and your team for exceptional service!  We were so pleased with Draper’s – working with you, making the changes, the beautiful linens, the delicious food, only charging us for 490…and the list goes on.  I’ve received compliments on the food – as you probably know, it’s not common for folks to appreciate “banquet” type food but you all really knocked it out of the park!  The best part is that your fees allowed us to offer a wonderful meal and make money for our mission – goal accomplished…well, fundraising goal actually exceeded!

- S. Simpson - Books From Birth - April 2017


Just a quick email to say everything at the reception was perfect!  Please pass this along, our lead waiter was as attentive and helpful and kind and professional as anyone could ever hope for.  He took great care of us from the second we walked in to hide and grab a bite to eat.  The food was great and we were happy there seemed to be just a little of each item left over.  Seriously perfect!  Thank you!  Thank you all!

- A. Kail, Feb. 2017

Dear Draper's,

We wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful food and staff for our wedding in October.  WE just got our photos back this week and it remided us about how amazing everything was, including the food!  Our family and friends were very impressed with the staff and service and the still talk about how great the food was.  So again, we would like to thank you for helping to create the perfect day for us!

- P. & M. Patel, October 2016

Ryan, Gary, and Crew,

Thanks so much for being such an amazing caterer to work with for our daughter's wedding.  People have been calling me to ask who we used as the food was delicious!!  Not only was it delicous but the presentation was over the top.  I especially appreciate Gary helping me guess a number after I was truthful with the lack of RSVP cards we had returned (even though they were stamped!).  You guessed almost perfectly!  We had a brunch the morning after for bridesmaids and groomsman and it worked out perfect.  See you again when the next 2 marry!  Y'all are the best!

- D. Fields, June 2015

I just wanted to thank you for helping to make my day special.  The food and service were both awesome! I really enjoyed working with you and you were very professional and responsive to my MANY emails and change requests.  I would definitely, without hesitation, recommend Draper's to anyone needing a caterer. 

- A. & C. Cole

Hi Sharon

Just wanted to take a minute and Thank You for such a remarkable job!! You guys never let me down! The food, as always, was out of this world, fresh and piping hot at the time it was served.  The 2 individuals who stayed during the course of the event were very professional, polite to all our guests and went above and beyond. We have somewhat of a large family and most celebrations are held at our home, they both allowed me the opportunity to spend time with family and friends and enjoy our time together as we recognized my Mother's 75th birthday. I just can't express how much I appreciate both of them!

We have heard from many guests today and they were still talking about what a delightful time they had yesterday and how much they enjoyed the food. I couldn't have done it without you guys!  Thank you again!

- D. Simpson

Ryan & Staff,

We wanted to send a note to thank you and your staff for the outstanding service you provided for our wedding reception at the Woodruff Fontaine House August 1st.  From the planning of the menu to the logistics of thay, you and your staff showed the utmost professionalism.

The servers and bartender were outstanding, easy going, and helpful, allowing us to relax and the reception to flow flawlessly.  A special not of thanks to the lead server who cut our wedding cake and so was so helpful we cannot thank him enough for all of his efforts!

Dear Draper's Catering,

You recently catered my daughter's wedding at Maple Grove Farm.  I want to let you know how pleased we were with everything.  The food was excellent.  The prime rib was divine and everything was beautifully presented.  Everyone was great to work with.

- L. Ehrhardt and Family
My husband and I just got back in a couple of days ago from our honeymoon, things have winded down and now I can breath again!  lol.  I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart, everything was PERFECT for our wedding.  The food was delicious, I was so glad you all packed us up some to go because we were so busy at the reception we barely ate anything.  I'm actually still receiving calls asking who catered the food.  I just can express how thankful I was to have you all cater our wedding.  You guys have definitely earned a customer for life, and I will be contacting you in the next week or so for an event for my job. Again, thank you for your hospitality!
-The Reeds, July 2015


We cannot express how important your role has been during this special time in our lives.  Not only have you and your family been extremely pleasant to work with...you have also demonstrated the importance of family and fellowship by providing an elegant (and delicious) meal on our wedding day.  Your efforts, hard work, and professionalism do not go unnoticed...That's why you are one of the BEST in Memphis!

Just wanted to let you know the party was a HUGE success and it was all because of Draper's!  The food was amazing (enough to feed far more than 60) and the two ladies you sent were so easy to work with and turned the table into a work of art!  I had so many compliments.  I appreciate all y'all did to make this a wonderful evening.  I will definitely call again!

Dear Ryan, Gary, and the entire staff at Drapers,

There aren't enough words to describe what a fabulous job you did for us on our big day.  The food was amazing and the staff was superb!  You really went above and beyond with the service that blew our mind.  Everyone is still raving about all the food - especially the Southwestern Egg Rolls and the Spinach Dip.  The to-go bag was much appreciated.  We will definitely be recommending you.  Thanks again for everything!

L & L Diaz, September 2013


I hoped to write this email earlier, however, with travel back to Charlotte, the honeymoon and starting work back on Monday, I am delayed in writing to say THANK YOU! I wanted to allow myself enough time to put together a note that conveys how sincerely thankful I am for all of the work you and your team put into our wedding reception.

Everything was absolutely perfect!!!!! This sentiment is shared not only by me, but David, his family and mine in addition to our guests. The presentation of the food and the service was impeccable and the food itself was absolutely DELICIOUS! We all have been getting some many compliments on how good all of the food was....people totally loved the BBQ martini station.

As a bride who planned the wedding almost completely alone, there is quite a bit of risk/worry that goes into hiring vendors and hoping everything comes together for the reception. While I knew immediately after our first conversation that we were in good hands with Drapers, the work/effort that went into our wedding reception EXCEEDED my expectations. The food, service, and presentation was just perfect. Please know that you and your team played such a huge role in making our reception such a huge success!!!!!

Please let me know if there is anything I can help with in the future....references, recommendations, etc.! I certainly know that I will be sharing very positive recommendations for Drapers to all friends and family who might be in need of catering services.
