Testimonials

We had such a wonderful wedding! It was the perfect day for both of us! Alex proposed to me on an unexpected snowy day, so it was very fitting that we got married during a snow storm! We were blown away by all of the hard work you guys did! The food, decorations, and service were everything we could have hoped for and more! -Sarah, Bride

SPECTACULAR! There is no other venue that would have been more perfect for us for our wedding! We had an 18 month engagement for reason as we wanted to interview each vendor to select the "best of the best" for our wedding and D'Amore was it for us! I am high maintenance when it comes to good food and service. Thomas Caterers is nothing but exceptional! Sarah F. is amazing to work with and her team truly made my day an exceptional one. I had Reds cookies ordered as a surprise for my husband since we did not have a grooms cake. Sarah took these cookies and created a whole display for them themed with baseball gloves and a sign that said "What a great catch". Beyond my expectations! The setting of D'Amore is so unique and memorable with the different looks it provides guests with its view during they day, sunset and then evening with the candles. We also has IPL grant us an hour in which they lit up the side of the building on the circle with a big red heart for us! Thomas carried over my theme of a Kate Middleton Wedding in the food presentation. They had martini's stacked on royal tea cups along with doing research to find out what Kate Middleton's wedding drink was and got the recipe to offer it at the cocktail reception. This "The Duchess" drink was a HUGE hit with all my guests. My foodie family thought the food was just amazing along with the service. Our wedding has been talked about since and it was due to the truly incredible job Thomas did at D'Amore. If you want a memorable venue beyond a standard hotel conference room, this is the venue worth booking. Thank you so much Thomas and Sarah F. for really making my big day such an amazing one! Beyond my expectations! An absolute job well done!  - Mary, Bride.

I can not thank you enough for everything that you have done. The reception turned out beautiful and I could not have been happier. We received millions of praise and compliments from how everything turned out. You were amazing helping me through this process and answering the million questions that I had. We were truly blessed to have things turn out the way they did and that was due in great part to your coordination.

D'Amore is amazing! Lauren was such a life saver at the wedding. I couldn't have asked for a prettier venue. Everything was so modern and I loved it for my formal wedding! I'm so thankful for D'Amore and the staff for making my dreams come true!

I cannot say enough nice things about the venue manager and our overall experience with D'Amore. From our first visit of the venue through the day of the big event, everything was organized, efficient and personalized. Lauren in particular was a pleasure to work with and I felt 100% comfortable that she was on top of every detail throughout the process. Things looked and flowed even better than I could have imagined on the actual wedding day. I STRONGLY recommend this venue to future brides and grooms!

We were so, so pleased with how things turned out last weekend.  You (and your staff!) did an even better job than I could have imagined – smooth and beautiful and not a detail out of place.  The room looked amazing and the food was simply excellent.  Thank you, thank you for coordinating a perfect evening.  You were calm and reassuring from day one and I feel so fortunate to have worked with you and your team.

I wanted to write you a quick note thanking you for all your hard work for our wedding October 18th.  Everything ran so smoothly and our guests kept telling us how great the venue and the food was.  I really appreciate all of your help, especially the day of the wedding.  I would recommend D'Amore and Thomas Caterers to anyone I know having an event in the Indianapolis area.  Thank you again, and it was a pleasure working with you.

-Kathy Polonka, Bride

I want to let you know how absolutely thrilled Risheet and I are thinking back on how everything flowed on Saturday. We simply could not be happier. D'Amore was set up beautifully; it was like a dream walking in and seeing everything exactly as we had discussed (and even better than I had imagined!) There wasn't a single detail you weren't on top of. The food was incredible, I had so many people comment to me throughout the evening about how much they enjoyed dinner. Your staff was professional and efficient and I just can't say enough nice things.

Thank you, thank you.

Thank you so much for everything on Friday night. Everyone that attended is still raving about the venue and the food. Top to bottom, this was one of our best receptions ever. Dee, the service was fantastic and met every expectation we had. People loved the food, too and they loved the presentation of all of it (especially the vertical wall with the hummus and thai beef salads). Please pass along my thanks to Dave as well. He was very attentive and helpful. Lauren, you are one lucky girl because I can’t imagine that you’d ever be short on business working at a venue like D’Amore. That is by far the best place for an event in Indianapolis. If we could have paid for the sunset, we would have. It was absolutely perfect. Thank you for staying the whole night. It made us (really Kelley!) feel a lot more comfortable and it didn’t go unnoticed. Thanks also for putting up with all of our quirks. I know we can be high maintenance, but I hope you understand why. Our clients expect the very best from us and details are so, so important. Thanks again and again for everything. You both were awesome to work with and we threw an awesome party together!

It was a wonderful, amazing wedding.  Everything was beautiful and oh so tasty.  Sara’s reaction when she saw the room was classic-she teared up and said, “It’s perfect!” And I never saw so many happy boys in my life when I told them about the cheese fountain-as one exclaimed “We have been waiting for this for 9 years!” It truly matched Curtis’ “dream”. The venue, (I am sure someone was in charge of perfect weather and sunset), amazing food and presentation, wonderful servers and bartenders (my favorite always had my gin and tonic half poured as I approached) were exceptional.

 

I will of course tell everyone about how wonderful it all was but let me know if there is a best way to tell the world about how pleased we are. Thank you again for being a huge part of an amazing celebration!

D'amore is one of the best places in Indianapolis for a wedding. It offers amazing views of the city. The room transformed beautifully during the reception from daylight to sunset to night time. The whole team at D'amore and Thomas Caterers did a great job and we could not have asked for a better venue or menu! I highly recommend D'amore and Thomas Caterers. This is the perfect place for a wedding in Indianapolis.

My name is Leo , and on June 9th my daughter Lindsay's wedding reception was held at D'Amore, and of course catered by Thomas Caterers.  During the weeks and months leading up to the wedding Lindsay and the rest of our family spent a great deal of time dealing with a couple of people who work for you, specifically Renee Miner and Kelly Robertson. My hope for that day was to help my daughter have a wedding day that would provide great memories for the rest of her life. No matter how much planning takes place, though, there's always a concern that something was forgotten, or something will simply go wrong. In fact I'm sure there are very few weddings where at least some detail isn't forgotten or overlooked. 

 

I'm not a person that's bashful about expressing my disappointment when people I hire don't perform. However,I've had 10 days to think about Lindsay's wedding now, and I honestly can't think of a single negative relating to D'Amore Events, Thomas Caterers, Kelly, Renee, or any of the staff that worked at the wedding. Every member of my family, including Lindsay and her husband Phil, and every guest that I've spoken to, had nothing but positive things to say about their experience, and we received many comments from people who were simply blown away by their experience at the wedding that night. I cannot think of a single thing I would change about our experience with your company and your employees. You can be very proud of them and the way that they represent Thomas Caterers. Thank you for helping to make a very special wedding day even more so.

... I wanted to let you both know what a fantastic experience I have had working with both.  This was the focus of our meeting, Kelly (the client) let us know from the very beginning that she wanted to make this the “wow” event of the week, and TCOD made the dinner the best dinner event this group has ever been to. It exceeded expectations and actually made Kelly (the client) cry when she first saw the room. I know I am speaking on behalf of everyone at the event when I say that the TCOD team was amazing.  I cannot express enough how truly thankful we are to have worked with such an amazing team.  I have also let all of the planners at VMS know what a wonderful experience we had at D’Amore and with Thomas Caterers. I am sure you will be hearing from my colleagues as they need to host off-site events as well.  Thank you for everything and we look forward to working with you again soon!

 I wanted to send a personal thank you to you and your Staff at Thomas Caters of Distinction from the McCauley/Sacheck families. I wanted to be sure to let you know what an outstanding job your staff did for our daughtrs wedding at D’Amore on September 10, 2011. A special thank you to Dee Haddad and Kelly Robertson who were so wonderful to work with from start to finish. They truly went above and beyond to make our event special. We are so glad we chose D’Amore and Thomas Caterers of Distinction for our daughter’s wedding reception, the venue was just stunning and we had a lot of wonderful feedback. Additionally, I wanted to tell you that the entire staff was so friendly and helpful and to let you know how pleased I was that your staffing was more than adequate for our guests. It’s nice to know all of our guests were cared for in that manner.   The food was wonderful so our hats off to your Chef as well. Todd did a great job on the cake and we were all wishing there was some left over for our Sunday brunch! Your staff even helped out with our send-off downstairs just before midnight by escorting us downstairs and being readily available. I tried to thank those serving in advance before the dinner got underway, but truly, pass on our thanks to everyone serving us that evening. I wish I remembered more names to recognize them personally. 

 

James and Brittany and all of us attending the wedding certainly had a night we won’t soon forget. I will pass along your name with my highest compliments to anyone I know who is planning a wedding or any other event.

-Terri, Mother of the Bride
