"Marc and his team put on an incredible wedding for my brother at NCS.  Thanks to his experience, knowledge and no drama approach, the preparations leading up to the event went perfectly smoothly. The service and attention to detail at the event were impeccable and noted by all of our guests.  Having worked in the events industry for over 10 years, I have to say that it isn't easy to find someone like Marc who makes the entire catering and event process from beginning to end so relaxed and easy, while at the same time providing excellent service and beautifully presented meals.  It was a pleasure to work with him."

"..it was lovely and a novel and interesting place for a party. Hard to beat the Cathedral all lit up at night as a backdrop... and the room can be anything you want it to be, since it is both elegant and neutral."

--Catherine Rivlin, NCS Class of '75.


"From the very beginning of our planning to end of our wedding night, the entire process with Marc and the National Cathedral School was pure magic. He was such a pleasure to work with and provided his professional expertise not just because it was his job to do so, but because he genuinely cared and took personal interest in our special event.  From the moment our limo pulled up to Hearst Hall, I knew that we had made the right decision! The wedding reception flowed with ease and Marc took it upon himself to make sure that every detail was accounted for.  I felt like a princess for an evening and that Hearst Hall was my castle. Days after the wedding my new husband and I couldn’t help but remark “Wow! That was an amazing wedding! And nothing bad even happened, not a single thing! It was perfect”. We were so lucky to have had Marc in charge of our wedding and to have NCS and the cathedral as our backdrop. I couldn’t have asked for a more romantic, fun and magical evening and it is all thanks to Marc and NCS."
