Dear Shannon and other members of the Jeffrey Miller Catering team, There are no words to express our gratitude for the level of expertise and service you provided us and our guests with at our wedding on August 2nd. We had the most perfect day, filled with love, because you gave us everything we dreamed of. If we can do anything, share pictures or wedding decor, please let us know. We are so grateful for all your hard work. Thanks again, Molly and Bill Easton

Hi Shannon! We are sorry it took us so long to send you this email we are finally settling into married life, which suprisingly exactly the same! We wanted to thank you so much for everything that you did for us on our wedding day, everything was flawless! Looking back a month later, literally everything was perfect, from the way everything was set up to where everyone had to be and when. We really couldn't have asked for more. the best part was how easy it was, only a few meetings and all of our questions were answered, it was almost scary how easy it was, it made us think that it was too easy, that we were missing something, but we werent, you were just on top of it all! We have gotten so many compliments on our special day and we really could not have done it without you and your team! We will recommend you, John Audubon Center, and JAM over and over again until we are both blue in the face! THANK YOU SO MUCH SHANNON YOU ARE THE BEST :) Love, Kristina and Joe
Hi Shannon! We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for EVERYTHING you have done for us! the moment we met you and saw the property at the John James Audubon Center on that stormy, cold February day, we knew that we wanted to work with you and that we wanted to start the next chapter of our life at the Audubon Center. your gracious hospitality from the very beginning to your organization the day of; you were nothing short of absolutely fabulous! We are actually at a loss for words, because we are not sure how else to express our sincere gratitude. the process of planning a wedding can truly be one of the most stressful times in a woman's (man's) life, but you made it as seamless as possible for us; and were just so helpful throughout all the months leading up to the big day. Our wedding day was everything we imagined it to be and more and we could not have done it without you, your help, and your team. Thank you again! We are already been referring you and the Audubon Center (as have our guests!); everyone had such a wonderful time. All of our best and well wishes, Keri and Matthew
Hi Shannon, Thank you so so much. We loved working with you. It was just so easy! You were laid back but got things done and always helped us and made us feel so comfortable. We feel very lucky to have worked with you! Our wedding was absolutely amazing and we keep saying it was the best day of our lives:) and everyone who was there said it was so much fun. The honeymoon was awesome too. Mexico is such a gorgeous place and the people were so friendly. We just did a lot of lounging, eating,and drinking :) Thanks again so much! Beth and Nick

Shannon, We would all like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts how truly special our day was. We had non stop compliments on the venue, food, music, just pretty much EVERYTHING! A lot of people said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to, and that is what I wanted !! You were wonderful to work with from the beginning to end and you made me feel so comfortable. I really appreciate you answering all of the questions I had for you, which were SO many I'm sure. I felt like I was getting on my own nerves sometimes, haha! The day was truly amazing and everything came together perfectly. Thank you to JMC for their wonderful food and service. I wish I got to eat more of the food that day, just my anxiety keeps me away from it but we enjoyed the leftovers :) You all made our day one huge memory and I cant say enough how thankful we are. Keep in touch and thank you again for everything you have done. It was all perfect! Caren

Love, Elizabeth and Max
Shannon and Jam Catering, We cant even begin to tell you how perfect our wedding day was for the two of us and all of our guests. We heave heard countless times how amazing the venue and wedding was. The staff was so professional and helpful, and to be honest we almost didn't even notice they were there because of how efficiently and quickly they worked. Shannon, we can't thank you enough for all of your help. You were such a huge reason we had the wedding of our dreams. We will definitely recommend JAM catering to any and all future brides and grooms that we meet. Love, The Sadiwnyks

Shannon, I've been meaning to write to you. We just got back from our honeymoon. We had an amazing time! The venue was beautiful and the food was fantastic. Thank you for seamlessly changing the ceremony location indoors. Everything was really perfect. We will be sure to recommend Jeffrey Miller and Audubon to anyone and everyone in the future.

Dear Shannon, Thank you so much for all you did for , and at, the Oniell/Easton Wedding on August 2nd. You were always prompt in responding whenever we had a question preparing for the reception. At the reception you were amazing! Not only did you personally attend to the bride and groom, my husband and I, but many guests commented on how helpful you were at request and many nice gestures were done without asking. The food was superb! I have eaten many wedding and banquet meals and this was the best. Not an easy feat for almost 200, moist steak and crabcake. All the guests raved about the food! The staff was excellent, they were helpful, friendly and took care of all requests. A special shout-out to the bartenders. Everyone was impressed there was never a line at the bar! A first for most everyone at a wedding open bar. Thank you again for all of your efforts on Saturday night. You went over and above and it showed. You were hopping all night ad we appreciate it. Thanks, Rebecca
Rebecca, 2014-08-02
Shannon, Than you for all your hard working making this day a reality. Best of luck! Jackie and Garrick

This is a review of my recent wedding at the beautiful John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. There are a few times in life where you expect and hope for perfection , and your wedding day is one of them. We were lucky enough to experience the perfection that is Jeffrey Miller Catering at the John James Audubon Center and its staff-from our incredibly talented, and always available and stress-relieving planner Shannon Mullane, to the attentive and professional waitstaff and bartenders, and the creative and accommodating chefs and kitchen staff, our day was PERFECT! Prior to our big day, about three weeks before the event, they had re-sodded the grounds and made some unplanned improvements to the grounds that we were very pleased with. The Audubon Center staff was tidying the grounds the day before at the rehearsal and everything was absolutely gorgeous. Our ceremony was held outside at the honey locust tree. The chairs were arranged in the shade for the comfort of our guests, and all had a good view of the alter. The cocktail hour was held in the barn, which was air conditioned and quite a nice relief after sitting outside for 30 minutes. The barn is beautiful by itself with original stonework and exposed wood beams with some simple string lights hung to accentuate the natural beauty of the surroundings. The dinner and dancing was held in the pavilion which also had beautiful exposed wooden rafters with string lights, ceiling fans to ensure a cool breeze throughout the pavilion. The stone fireplace is elegant but understated and a perfect location for our sweetheart table. Our family, friends and wedding guests could not stop raving about the natural beauty of the venues, delectable hors d'oeuvres and entrees and overall quality of service we all experienced at Audubon! Overall, we would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to be married outside surrounded by natural beauty of green grass, beautiful trees, and gardens. We are forever grateful to everyone to making our day (and planning process) AMAZING!

Thanks so much!! We (and all of our guests) had an absolutely amazing time at the wedding!! it was PERFECT- I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said that it was exactly the kind of wedding they would imagine for me! And it absolutely wouldn't/couldn't have happened without you! I can't tell you how helpful your calm, in control demeanor was for my psyche. i absolutely felt like you had everything under control AND YOU DID! Seriously, it was perfect and we couldn't be happier! Thanks so much again, Maggie and Brian
Maggie, 2013-10-12
We're headed to Mexico now for our honeymoon, but we couldn't leave without saying THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! Saturday was truly magical for us. It was the wedding that we had always dreamed of, and we have been getting rave reviews from all of our guests about how gorgeous Audubon is and how great the food was! We really couldn't have done it without you. It's been such a pleasure to work with you!! You were so accommodating and helpful on every level. We hope the rest of your wedding season goes well, and we will absolutely be sending newly engaged couples your way! XO, Holly and Chase

Hi Jeffrey, I just wanted to tell you how amazing our wedding was. Shannon and her team really went above and beyond to make everything great. Literally, EVERY person told us how amazing the venue and food were, and many of them said that this was one of the best weddings they'd ever attended. Thank you thank you thank you!! Thanks again, Alexis
Alexis, 2012-11-03
Shannon, This email is long overdue. Our wedding was, in a word, fabulous. This is surely cliché, but guests don't lie- we are still getting rave reviews months later to the tune of "This was the best wedding I have ever been to, hands down" and "second best wedding ever after my own!" Everyone certainly always believes their wedding was the best, but in this case we worked together to create something beautiful and unique, with timely logistics to match. I could not have asked for much more. The grounds and facilities looked beautiful, the staff was attentive, and everything fell into place as it should. You were wonderful at helping guide me in my vision for the wedding without pushing too hard. Brides are relaxed when their planners are relaxed, and for that I commend you! Thank you for being so accommodating during our slight hiccup with the unannounced children in attendance. The last thing we would've wanted was unhappy or visibly disturbed guests, and no one seemed to be the wiser when the additional table was rolled out. The food deserves a separate paragraph. While we are by no means professional gourmands, and were decisive in choosing our caterer based on elevated menus and taste levels. We were very confident it would be delicious after our initial tasting, and Jeffrey Miller did not disappoint on October 12th (as the bride and groom we made a concerted effort to EAT at our own wedding). Hors d'oeuvres were demolished; recipes of which were asked for on the sly. There was not an overdone filet in sight. The vegans in attendance were so appreciative of their separate quinoa option- they even had meat eaters at the table sampling from their plates! Of the three chef-guests at our wedding, all of them commented on the freshness, flavor, and preparation of the food. Bravo. Thank you to you, Shannon, and all of the staff at JJAC and Jeffrey Miller for their professionalism and service. We will forever remember our elegantly rustic Audubon wedding. With appreciation, Lauren

Hi Shannon, We just wanted to thank you for everything! Our wedding day was our best day yet and none of it could have happened without your help. We were so pleased with the look of everything (my decorations were arranged PERFECTLY, and the timing of everything was executed flawlessly! We really appreciate how hard you and your team worked to give us a perfect day and we couldn't have asked for anything more! And the compliments from our guests are still rolling in :) Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! It really was a pleasure working with you!
Lauren, 5.19.12
Shannon,nnI hope things are going well for you. Emily and I want to personally thank you for a perfect wedding day! Everything seemed to go off without a hitch. We appreciate all the hard work you put in to make things appear seamless, so thank you so much!n
Ryan and Emily, 6.2.12
This was truly a real life fairy tale wedding. Everything was exquisite and magical. Audubon is picture perfect everywhere you look. It is charming and will transport you to a world of romance and charm. It was a perfect day in every way!
Naseema Sami Skacel, 9/4/2011
Our daughter's wedding at Mill Grove in July could not have been more perfect. The apple orchard was a spectacular setting for Natalie and Christopher's ceremony, and our guests were impressed with the cocktail reception in the barn and dinner and dancing that followed in the pavillion. From the elegant table settings to the delicious food, Anthia Graham of Jeffrey Miller Catering and her staff provided the utmost in personal service that made for an unforgettably memorable wedding. We truly appreciated their attention to the smallest detail and commitment to excellence for the happy couple and all of our guests." Florence and Bill Ford
Florence Ford, 07/16/2011
My husband and I were looking for a location that had plenty of charm and a vibe of sincerity. Jeffry Miller catering provided the most spectacular food and cake that all our guests are still talking about. Anthia and her team made planning the event a breeze. it all flew by so quickly I'm glad we chose such a beautiful location because it really shows in the photos. I wish I could do it again every weekend!nIf you want an event that's a little outside the box, full of heart and completely memorable... This is the place. With Love and gratitude to the entire team, Stacy & Steve Priebe
Stacy Lobb, September 16, 2011
My daughter had a wondeful wedding at Audubon. The weather was a little on the hot side (I worried it would be even worse with the terrible heat we have had this summer) but it did not affect the fun we and the guests had. (If you don't want to sweat while you are dancing, hire a boring band!) Guests are still calling to say how beautiful Audubon was, how good the food was (I'll never forget that steak!) and how much fun the party was. (Make sure you get a great party band.) Anthia and the staff work very hard and deserve the many compliments they have received in previous testimonials. Thanks to all of them for making this such a special day for us.
Lou Lessen, July 31, 2011
Dear Anthia and all at Jeffrey Miller ~ Is the day really over? All of the work that goes into planning leads up to this on quick moment. We thank you for making that day a truly amazing one. Everything came together even better than i could have dreamed. When I was waiting to walk out I got a few minutes to soak it all up and was really touched. The romantic feel was evident and the sun even decided to show up. Thank you from our hearts for all of the hard work. We were thrilled with it all. Brenna and John
Brenna Huffstutler, 5/15/11
The audubon was a beatiful site for our wedding of 110 guests. the food was wonderful and the guest raved about the dishes. the cake was yummy. anthia worked superhard to make sure everything ran smoothly, and we can't thank her or Jeffrey Miller Catering enough. we love our photos and we had a great time! thanks for everything.
Tiffani Lemen, 6/4/2011
The Audubon Center was the perfect backdrop for our wedding and we thank Anthia for flawlessly coordinating our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Jeffrey Miller Catering obviously pays great attention to detail when preparing their dishes. Each appetizer, salad, and entree looked just as fantastic as it tasted. Our lemon chiffon cake with raspberry mousse filling was so moist and delicious that many guests went back for seconds. Our guests had a great time, and so did we. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding.
Jenny and Mike Thomas, June 17, 2011
Anthia, I have to say a huge thank you for the beautiful meal we had last Wednesday. The set up in the barn was beautiful, really just enchanting. The food and the service were wonderful. I don't know how you can prepare and serve 32 pieces of tender chicken and crunchy vegetables all at the same time and have it come out so perfectly. I can't even talk about how yummy that chocolate creme brulee was-a crowd pleaser. Amir was very pleasant and helpful-we enjoyed him,too. Thank you-- from the Phila Club of Medical Women--you made our event special.nSusan Spandlern
Susan Spandler, 5/4/11
If rustic elegance is what you seek, search no further! Audubon perfectly combined our desire for a woodsy "backyard wedding" atmosphere with our need for accommodations that would still make our guests feel totally comfortable. While very easy to find (a plus!), this historic landmark is tucked away/set back off the main road in such a way that makes you feel the property is all your own. Couples have their choice of several ceremony locations on the site, which allows for some creative freedom. We loved sharing apps & drinks with just our bridal party on the back porch of the homestead while our photographer did family portraits. Afterwards, we joined our guests in the gorgeous barn for cocktail hour, followed by dinner under the pavilion. This site is spectacular if you are a nature-lover, and ideal for the "laid back" couple. A practical element that sold us on this site was a rain plan that truly worked nicely. It goes without saying that the caterer contracted exclusively here will NOT disappoint! Knowing Jeffrey Miller was doing our food gave us one less thing to worry about from the beginning - your guests will rave about creative little finger foods, tasty signature beverages, and other little details that blow your mind. PRO: gorgeous stone fireplace, staffed and roaring all night long. CON: two toilets. If one goes, you will have lines depending on your party size. A word of advice: trust in your party planner....she really does know best!
Nikki Terzopolos, Oct 16th 2010
The Audubon Center made our wedding more incredible than we could have imagined. We fell in love with the venue from the first time we saw it, and we were lucky enough to have gorgeous September weather that really highlighted how special the location really is. Working with Anthia and the rest of the staff at Audubon was a pleasure and they made sure that everything was perfect and worry free on the big day. We had such a great time that we extended the party and kept on rocking into the night! We continue to hear from our guests that it was one of the best weddings ever and that we should get married every year!
Kara and Christopher Morse, 9/11/2010
A glorious site with a superb caterer, and a talented and imaginative wedding coordinator helped create a memorable wedding for our daughter, Kate. The vision of her ideal wedding was actualized with a little help from the beautiful autumn weather that blessed the entire weekend. Our coordinator, Anthia Graham guided this novice mother of the bride through all the steps, from planning to realization with suggestions and solutions at every level. Her spirit and positive approach were always appreciated. She was ever present during the ‘day of’ preparations, ceremony, and celebration that followed. One guest said she saw her everywhere even refilling break baskets. Our special requests were handled accurately and even though I had the need to double check, I found out quickly I really didn’t have to. Anthia shared her ideas, was open to ours, and had a can-do attitude that made this event so very special. The Audubon staff, especially Bob, were accommodating and resourceful. Friends and relatives, who don’t praise freely, are still calling and e-mailing with positive reviews of the setting and the food. We will never forget that night nor will our daughter and her husband.
Karen Reber, 10/23/2010
Anthia, thank you so much for making our wedding day one we will always remember. Your pleasant but "take charge" approach made everything run smoothly and relieved us of any worry so we were able to truly enjoy our day. The overall flow of the event was also well organized and all of our guests were very comfortable. We enjoyed working with you so much, and would highly recommend you, and the location, to all of our friends and family!
Meghan VanSpriell, June 26, 2010
Thank you again for helping to plan and coordinate my wedding. Due to your professionalism, hard work, and expertise, the event turned out to be a huge success. Adam and I really had a great day thanks to you and all your efforts. From the great job you did decorating our wedding cake - it looked exactly as I had envisioned - to your patience and guidance throughout the planning process, it was evident that it was as important to you as it was to us to have the type of wedding we always wanted. For that we are deeply grateful. I know how much you take care of and pamper your brides, but I hope you get some R and R for yourself every now and again!nAll the best to you and yours and much continued success in planning awesome weddings.n Sabrina Thanse and Adam Cone
Sabrina Thanse, 8/1/09
Dear Anthia, nWendy, Shannon and I want to thank you so much for your extraordinary work in organizing the wedding. You have such a difficult and challenging job, but you did it and you did it beautifully! Everyone was so impressed with the venue, the food and the smoothness of the entire affair. You help set the backdrop and the environment for a wonderful celebration, and for Wendy and Shannon you helped a dream come true. Thank you so much for all your very hard work in making it so. We will always be grateful to you for all the happy memories you helped give us all. Take care and best of luck to you.n n n
Marjorie Shiekman, 8/21/10
Comments from our guests: "best wedding ever", "This was not wedding food, it was gourmet and fun to eat". The servers, staff and planning made the day amazing. You even ordered the most incredible weather of the year. The location and the Audubon staff could not have been nicer. It is sad that we can no this again since is the last wedding.
Paul Goldenberg, September 5, 2010
My husband and I recently held our wedding reception at the John J. Audubon Center at Mill Grove. We had the pleasure of working with Anthia Graham as our wedding planner. She was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole planning process and ensured that we had the best service and wedding reception of our dreams! Jeffrey Miller Catering was so professional and the food was extraordinary! My guests are still buzzing about how delicious and spectacular everything was. Our reception was in July, on one of the hottest days of the summer, but that didn't stop us. We partied the night away with cocktails in the barn & dinner in the elegant covered pavilion. Under the stars, we made memories that will last a lifetime. I could not have asked for anything more. The whole event was so much more than I could have ever imagined. I will remember it always! Thank you Anthia and JAM Catering!!!
Nicole and Jason Rowinski, July 17, 2010
Despite rain, late guests, and generally unforeseen circumstances our wedding was absolutely the best wedding our guests had ever been to! Everyone has commented enthusiastically about the food, the delicious champagne cocktail, the homemade donuts, and particularly the gorgeous, welcoming space both indoors and out. Everything came together beautifully and spontaneously, and the whole event was as relaxed and gorgeous as we had hoped. Thank you for excellent service and a very responsive attention to detail - everything was executed perfectly and we just had the best day we could imagine!
Dante and Adam, June 6, 2010
We got married last week, and everything was wonderful! We had the time of our lives! A week later, our guests are still raving about the beautiful setting, food, and how much fun they had. nnAlong the planning process, there were of course small hiccups, but Anthia, our planner, always offered reasonable solutions. And most importantly, day of, everything was smooth and easy, and we were able to enjoy eachother and our guests. Thanks for everything!
Alix & Joe, 7/3/2010
Sue, nWe were more than pleased with the entire wedding experience with Audubon and you. People raved about the location and the food and service. nEverything was wonderful and I am so glad we were able to have such a thorough, understanding, organized wedding planner!n
Colleen and Travis K., 5/30/10
We had an amazing wedding day at the Audubon center. It was raining on and off so we moved our cocktail hour into the barn. It was so warm and beautiful, we got rave reviews of the building itself as well as the food. The mason jars used for drinks and the food were memorable. The reception was gorgeously decorated and the fireplace added a lot of ambiance. Our guests commented on the non-stop abundance of mouth watering dishes and we even got a couple thank you cards mentioning their favorite foods! Thank you to Robyn who took all the stress out of the day and surpassed my hopes and dreams for the perfect wedding. All our friends gave it 5 stars and we had our perfect day despite the bad weather!
