Would not recommend – First off, I want to say that the decor at my wedding was beautiful. The tables and chairs were set up nicely and was exactly how I pictured it. Also, the wait staff was very friendly. That's where all my compliments stop. Jerri is very unprofessional. She is pushy and overbearing and if you do not like something she does she'll do it her way regardless. As soon as I arrived to my reception venue and she came out, one of the first things out of her mouth was how my flowers were not the exact shade of orange as my wedding colors and were a pink shade of orange. I did not go with her for my flowers so I think it was dirty that on my wedding day, she would bash my bouquet. Once we got into the reception, my husband and I were the first to get food. All of the food wasn't even out when we went through the line and the food was lack luster. She spoke so highly of her food and we were excited to try it. Come the wedding day, it all tasted prepackaged and there is not ONE thing I can recall that tasted good. I had also paid to have a keg at my wedding that I went out and purchased myself. Most of the beer served was poured from the keg to a pitcher and then served, and in turn, all the beer served was flat. Not to mention that after the reception when my husband and I had left, she tried to take the keg home as if it were a gift to her. Thank goodness my brother in law was there to get it so we could get our deposit back on the return of it. After the wedding she hounded me to leave a review of the services provided and I refrained from doing so in order to be nice. When I did leave a review it was a very minimal, "Liked: Decor Disliked: Food" and Jerri emailed me 7 months after the wedding to complain about the review I had given her. If given the choice to do it all over again, I would not have chosen this company and have made effort, and even more so now, to sway people from choosing this vendor.
Shocked! Didn't bash the bouquet, when I saw color was not the same I asked, because I was afraid I got it wrong (I didn't). They chose a keg & yes in order to faster serve guests, we poured from the keg to a pitcher & I did offer to take the keg back to my shop,so they could pick it up later. I will put our food against anyone's. I was just awarded the Platinum A award by the NC health department, which is given only to the top 50 top ranked restaurants in NC for cleanliness.
Expectations exceeded – Jerri and her staff were amazing! They all go the extra mile to make sure things run smoothly. The food was fabulous and we had two formers chefs as guest and they loved the food especially the wedding cake. I wanted the over the top wedding and got WAY over the top wedding. Loved everything & couldn't have done it without them.
memorable Experience – The most important thing a couple should focus on the day they get married is each other! Let Jerri Patterson and her staff handle the rest!
Table Decor and More delivered a truly tailored and memorable experience not only to ourselves but left our guest so impressed that there was a buzz about it for weeks after.
Jerri took the time to get to know us and found out what our expectations were only to exceed them. The lighting and outdoor fixtures she set up created such a fluid and friendly atmosphere that was visually welcoming to all of our guest. Each table and stand up table tops were draped in fresh linens and topped with center pieces that showcased a combination of flowers, vines and functional lanterns which really added to the ambiance. The staff was very professional, extremely courteous and attentive to the needs of guest contributing to the tier one experience. The food was well arranged and offered the kind of flavors you went back asking for seconds and thirds! The attention to detail was shown and seen everywhere you looked and it all match and made sense. Everything was perfect!
Jerri Patterson is an artist and she uses Table Decor and More to create! She creates smiles, laughter, wonder, joy, amazement,...she creates memories! If you are looking for a stress free one stop shop that handles all the logistics while you enjoy the moment, don't hesitate to contact Table Decor and More. You are already on the site and are reading these reviews. I am confident that if you use Table Decor and More, you will be writing a positive review yourself and endorsing Jerri Patterson.
Thank you Jerri for all you have done! It was magical!
The Parlier-Shire Dream Wedding 5/8/10 – I was married on May 8, 2010, and I had a fantastic wedding and reception thanks to Jerri Patterson! I had heard about Table Decor & More while attending a friend's wedding in 2008. I was absolutely in awe at her reception. Everything was so impeccable, and the food was delicious. So, when I became engaged a year later, I had to meet with Jerri because I wanted that same kind of experience for my future husband and myself.
Since I was never one of those girls who had every detail of their wedding planned practically since birth, it was very nice to sit down with someone like Jerri who has lots of wedding experience. It took a while for me to decide on colors for the wedding, and Jerri was very patient with me. I also had to make changes on flowers and other decorations a couple of months before the wedding, but Jerri was very understanding and helpful.
When I first started planning my wedding, I was truly amazed and overwhelmed by all of the details that go into creating a wedding/reception. Thankfully, Jerri was so proficient and had so much to offer with her company. She was creative, had lots of ideas, and was very honest with me.
Since my fiance and I were paying for the wedding, we needed to know what everything was going cost up front so that we could have everything paid for before the wedding. Jerri created an awesome wedding that fit our budget, and the payments were spread out so that we could pay for it easier.
One of the best things about planning with Table Decor & More was having one person to oversee and take care of EVERYTHING. That was truly priceless! On my wedding day, I just wanted to be able to show up without a care in the world and enjoy everything, and Jerri delivered that for me.
When I walked inside the reception room at the hotel prior to the wedding to see what everything looked like, I felt like I had stepped into a fairy tale. Everything was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined in my best dreams. I actually stood there and cried tears of joy. Thankfully, I had not had my make-up done yet for the wedding!
During the the reception, countless people complimented the food and the decorations. Many people that night told me that it was one of the best weddings that they had ever been to, and I have to agree! My husband and I are still talking about it....especially the food. I greatly recommend the pork loin!
If you are planning a wedding, I highly recommend Jerri Patterson and her team at Table Decor & More! You will be impressed.
poor photography included – It has taking me awhile to write this review because I wanted to just let it go. I chose this company for the all inclusive deal. I thought this answered all my money problems. All though my Wedding day was great and her mistakes wont change that, I still have a few reminders of my frustrations. Photography...I was told when I booked that photography was her favorite and she did so much exciting things with the wedding. After looking at her website, I felt assured that the I could trust her with (the most important thing) the pictures. Unfortunately, this is why I was dissapointed, The Photographer was completely unprofessional. She was rude to my bridal party and family. My Maid of Honor had to help direct shots because the photographer was giving no direction. Yes we were late to our appointment but we, had major mishaps that could not be avoided. Basically, I have no Pictures with my Inlaws with my husband, Barely any pictures of the groomsman, No pictures of me with my husband and my immediate family. The Lady exchanged words with my Bridesmaid and caused a scene. The only pictures I have of the ceremony are from my aunt. By the way any family members taking pictures were yelled at like little kids. They kept getting in trouble for taking pictures. The lady sat on a chair during half the reception and did nothing until we directed her to take more pics. She then later approached me and asked if she could leave. I felt on the spot and overwhelmed by everything going on and told her yes. I felt like she wasnt working anyway. And once again she was rude to my family. She kept saying to everyone that you take more pictures then I have ever seen before. Well thank God! Because I now realized I wouldnt of had the pictures of the ceremony that I do now thanks to my Aunt. She also was not dressed professionally.
I called Jerri days after with my concerns and she said they got lots of pictures and for my troubles she would comp the discs with all photos. So thats where I decided to just move on. I recieved the discs and there were alot of pictures because alot were duplicates.
Now on to the picture part.... The pictures were so generic I could of just had a friend follow me with a camera. I have the discs and can show them to anyone that wants to view them.
Moral of the story is you get what you pay for. In Jerri's defense the decor was what I wanted and looked great. But she did try to add on extra charges everytime I turned around. Like a linen for dj table. An extra charge for a table for the groom and I . This was all discussed at our first meeting. I didnt throw curveballs.
I also had an issue with a table being moved. One table was up against a wall with little view. My Mother asked her repeatedly to move it to opposite wall and she refused, I was promised service for my wedding party while we were waiting to be announced and that didnt happen. Everytime I asked for a drink for a wedding party member I was told they were an alcoholic and were forbidden from serving drinks. Finally A groomsman got drinks for the wedding party.
I just want to give people a heads up before you hire a vendor without proper research. Till this day everytime I look at my wedding photos Im disgusted,
I know Im late in the game about posting. I just thought I have seen alot of negative comments on here and now mysteriously deleted. All of a sudden she has all these positive reviews. I will not keep posting if she deletes this. I have already put my word out there. I have already had 6+ friends get married and they all steered away from this company . I have a few more friends planning now who will use the same venue but know not to request this company.
I am the owner of Table Decor & agree that we had a bad experience with the photographer I had hired. It was a VERY hot day, so the bridal party was dying in the heat. The photographer did ask the Maid of Honor to help her gather everyone to get photos done faster. I gave this bride the CD disc with all photos on it for free. I fired this photographer.As for any fabrication of reviews, that is totally bogus. I am happy to give any prospective brides the names and phone numbers of my brides.
A Stress Free Wedding – Table Decor and More gave my husband and I a wedding to always remember. We were very pleased with everything Jerri Patterson and her staff did to help make our wedding special.
The flowers were beautiful. The reception was perfect...simple and elegant! The food was amazing!! The DJ was fun and the photographer was excellent. We loved all of our engagement photos and wedding pictures. All of our guests were surprised and pleased with everything.
Many of my friends mentioned to me that I didn't seem like a very stressful bride and that is because I wasn't. Jerri took care of everything for me and she did an amazing job!
Wonder experience! – I can’t say enough good things about Jerri Patterson and Table Decor & More. She assisted with our daughters wedding in early November and start to finish it was spectacular. If you want to take the stress out of the details, Jerri is your “go to person”. She was very organized, gave us her honest opinion on some ideas we had, and adjusted to our desires on things that were important to us. The food was great, the presentation was lovely and the money was well spent. As the MOB (mother of the bride) I can tell you I actually enjoyed every minute of the wedding and reception and Jerri worried about all the logistics.
Could not have been better! – I’m shocked by the negative reviews that were posted. I think the ladies who gave Jerri one star were bridezillas who wouldn’t be happy with anything. I mean they admit that the food was delicious and décor was beautiful, yet they gave Jerri one star? I don’t understand that. I also can’t believe they thought Jerri was rude. I did not have that experience at all. Jerri has a bubbly and friendly personality. Everyone really enjoyed having her at the wedding.
I was living in Baltimore, planning a Charlotte wedding and I was very lucky to find Jerri. I found that from the beginning, Jerri was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and a LOT of help. We exchanged emails and phone calls and met only once. Jerri handled everything. I was so stress free!
On my wedding day, I was totally happy. The food was so good! The décor was absolutely spectacular. Everything was even better than I had envisioned. All of Jerri’s staff was friendly and service was excellent. I put a lot of trust in Jerri to make the magic happen and she definitely delivered.
In response to a negative reviewer - I did not mind that Jerri had her brochures/cards at my wedding available to guests. I noticed that many of my guests had taken them. Obviously, a great sign that they were pleased and wanted her information.
Oh, there was one snafu. Corsages and boutonnières weren’t distributed to groom, fathers, mothers, grandmother. I have to admit that I did not miss them. It would’ve been hard to overlook bridesmaids without bouquets but I didn’t have any bridesmaids/groomsmen so I think this situation was easy to overlook. I mean, I overlooked them as well! Jerri did offer a full refund for those flowers.
I can understand one of the reviewers who said she wished she had an itemized list of items and prices. It is hard to know exactly what cost what and how much money went into flowers vs. food vs. cake, etc. But the way I looked at it, I was paying Jerri to coordinate all the details of the wedding and it didn’t matter how the money was allocated so long as everything was done. I had a small budget and was surprised how Jerri was able to stretch it. It looked like a high budget wedding. The centerpieces were so amazing!
I have pictures and I’m willing to talk to anyone who is wondering about whether or not to use Jerri’s services. (Jerri has my contact info). I am definitely 100% pleased that Jerri planned and coordinated my wedding. SO many people complimented my wedding and said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they attended. I have no regrets about using Jerri and if I had to do it all over again, or had another party to plan, I would definitely use Jerri.
Our Dream Wedding, Thanks To Jerri Patterson!! – I got Engaged during a very emotional time for my family.
2-14-09 my husband asked my hand in marriage. we had already been together 9 yrs to the day of our engagement. Regardless, I wanted a BIG, ELEGANT,FUN, wedding.
I had some off the wall ideas and requests. Jerri Patterson took it all in( and probably a nerve pill or two haha) and got to work. She worked on my wedding from April '09 until the day we wed, May 8, '10. I consider my taste to be elegant, with a very wild streak. something had to be "WOW!" this wedding as a whole had to be "WOW!!" Jerri and her team did not disappoint.
As you can imagine with a little over a year to plan this event, I thought I had my mind made up on everything from the beginning, and I did:) but i changed my mind on everything except the wedding dress and the man.umm, ok, Honestly , I changed my mind on everything ,like,6 or 7 times!! Jerri may have wanted to strangle me at any one point, but she sure didn't show it.Finally I decided (firm) that Black and White Damask was the theme and my flowers were jade roses for a great pop. We were married at The Stowe Manor in Belmont, NC. We said our vows at 6:30 in the evening and our fabulous reception followed immediately after at the same venue. I arrived the evening before to stay the night at the Manor, and saw that the tables and chairs, linens and such were already perfectly in place.
When I woke in the morning of our wedding day I saw from upstairs a flurry of activity, like a well oiled machine, Jerri and her crew were bringing in all the center pieces, and bar glasses, plates, etc.. It was amazing to watch.. They almost silently put all the "puzzle pieces" together before my eyes. A dream became a vision in front of me!! Then it seemed like minutes later I was already dressed and waiting on the go ahead because I could hear the song that I was walking to playing.."Bittersweet Symphony"....Game time.
After the kiss, my husband and I were whisked away to take a breath and realize what we just did. Immediately we were approached by a team of people who catered to our every single need or want. My guests all received the same attentiveness, the food (Filet Mignon,among one of the choices of many) was Superb. Better than even my own expectations. The D.J. and Photographer, Quin and Tammy Stancil were the best ever!! They captured all the important moments one would expect, and moments I didn't know they got! They kept the party going so well, I wasn't sure the party was gonna end!!
My flowers, and cake....I dont know where to begin. Our cake was chocolate, with white butter cream fondant.Jerri had put our Black Damask theme to work so well all over the venue, even on the cake!! It didnt just look good , it was sooo good. I dont even really like cake but it was amazing! I could really go on and on and on, but I think I have written enough to get it through to a potential "Jerri's Bride" that if your considering her, go talk to her!!
If your not looking to be extremely happy with the results, then Jerri Patterson may not be right for you..
You know your wedding was a blast when your on the way to your honey moon, and guests are already calling you to tell you that "Your wedding night was the best night of THEIR lives!"
Thank You Jerri!! xoxo
My friends are still talking. . . – I wish I had known about this place when we planned my first daughter's wedding!
Probably the best wedding I've been to ever! I can say that because the only thing I did was hire Jerri Patterson to plan it.She arranged for everything from flowers to food to DJ and photographer. I found the owner of Table Decor and More to be organized, knowledgable, professional and lots of fun. She used her experience to make sure my daughter had exactly what she has always wanted - a dream wedding, while making sure that I could still afford my mortgage after the big day was finished. The food, the decor, the flowers - everything was perfect. The wedding cake was delicious - no cardboard taste!
The Stancils , DJ and photographer duo, did an excellent job. Kept the party going, captured the spirit of the event in photos, and were a fun couple to hang out with. It seemed like every time I turned around, Jerri's husband was checking with me to make sure everything was progressing smoothly. The staff is excellent! They were prompt, professional and friendly. I can't say enough good things about my experience with this service. My friends are still talking about what a good time we all had - and that's the whole point!
