Planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic was uncharted territory for anyone this year. Soraya jumped in right when I needed her with what questions to ask my venue on how to ensure This “Corona Bride” was still going to get the wedding of my dreams. I planned everything last minute due to such uncertainty and Soraya was there with contacts for me from someone to rent chairs from literally last minute as my other vendor fell through. She connected me to the most amazing videographer when we decided last minute that we wanted one. Soraya has such amazing relationships with all these vendors and I knew I could trust her judgement with these referrals. In all this uncertainty, the only thing I was certain about was that any question I had for Soraya, she would give me her best answer or contact. She works all hours and is always accessible for any question you may have. She put my mind at ease and for someone who thought that I could plan this wedding on my own (I’m stubborn like that), I’m so glad I had her helping me plan my special day! More...

We booked Soraya originally to do our catering and ended up adding on day of coordination! Both services were above and beyond what we could have hoped for. All of our guests were absolutely raving about the food and the service! Soraya helped ease so much stress and anxiety for me, especially after having to overhaul and replan our wedding due to Covid. Soraya made the day so much more enjoyable and allowed my husband and I to be much more in the moment and enjoy our wedding day! I wouldn’t have changed a thing! More...

My life isn't perfect, but according to several of my guests, my wedding was, thanks to Soraya. She took care of every detail from the tent and furniture to the silverware.

We hired Soraya and her staff for both catering and coordinating. We had a wedding in the middle of a field on our family property and she helped the day run smoothly. As you can imagine it was a lot to develop a venue from scratch. Soraya made sure we had everything we needed which helped to relieve a lot of stress for us and our family. We have received so many complements on the food and the staff. I would highly recommend Soraya and her team to anyone. Thank you for everything Soraya! :) More...

We didn't have to worry about anything. She is so accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend her, and should I ever need catering/event services again, she will be my go to person.

SYB was absolutely AMAZING! We had to change our big wedding plans to an intimate small backyard wedding due to COVID. With high risk parents on both sides, we were so concerned about having our wedding and bringing in outside vendors. Our new wedding plan was to have 10 people socially distanced in our backyard. Soraya made me feel so comfortable with her knowledge of food preparation, especially given her dedicated commitment to stay on top of guidelines around food prep during this time. Dinner was absolutely incredible!! Soraya knows what she’s doing and I would hire her for any event in the future and recommend her to everyone we know! She came out to our house, served us an amazing dinner, and I truly felt as though I was still having an incredible, elegant dinner from the comfort of my backyard! She’s fantastic!!! My now husband and I can’t thank her enough! She was not only professional but she was caring and accommodating in the best way possible! More...

My daughter and her fiancé had to cancel their venue due to Covid-19 restrictions but MA was allowing up to 100 for outdoor events so they changed their plans to a small backyard wedding with about 40 guests. We needed to find a caterer quickly and Soraya's proposal was quick and thorough. Day of went so smoothly, her staff was excellent, the food delicious and their clean-up in our kitchen was impressive. Soraya also provided coordination for the day with a detailed timeline and excellent attention to every detail. She was responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend. More...

I had so many different thoughts and ideas for my wedding, I was going crazy. When I met with Soraya she was so comforting to me, and had vendors for all of my ideas. She put my wants and wishes together seamlessly for my wedding day. Anytime that I had a concern or worry, I called her and it was resolved immediately. Soraya was always accessible to me.

I worked with Soraya at SYB Event Planning and Catering for our department’s annual three-shift holiday event and it went really well. People loved the food. We had thick ham slices, mashed potatoes, green beans, grilled chicken with sauce on the side, ziti pasta and rolls. The next day, people were still talking and complimenting the good food. The catering staff was very nice and did a good job serving the food at all three shifts. We also had strawberry shortcake for dessert and it was delish. Everyone loved it. Soraya is personable, friendly, provides suggestions, and helps to stay within your budget. I look forward to working with SYB in the near future. More...

Soraya was amazing in every way. She was able to deftly organize a complete wedding in a matter of a few weeks in mid- October 2018 that included wonderful food designed around a custom tailored menu, facilitate catering arrangements and most importantly, seamlessly orchestrate the entire wedding reception with ease on the special day. Her insights and recommendations were invaluable, saved us money and added to the overall experience. The food was five star quality blending a combination of Middle Eastern and international cuisine for a truly blended evening of cultures between my Arabic heritage and my husbands American culture. We can't say enough positive things! Sawsan and Peter More...

Our daughter's wedding was now just over a month ago. It was amazing! And this is saying a lot for a number of reasons. The wedding itself was on a small island in the middle of a lake in New Hampshire while the reception was outside a private home in the woods near the lake. 92 guests were shuttled out to the island and back to the house. This involved rented school buses and somewhere around eight or nine boats. While we were out on the island, Soraya and her assistant were doing incredible things in the very meager kitchen. They had driven all the way up from the Worchester, Mass. area with all they needed to feed us one of the best wedding meals I have ever had. I still don't understand how they did it. They fed 92 hungry adults, under a tent down the hill from the house with delicious hot food, never ran out, and there were only two of them. They performed a miracle. By the time they left, they had cleaned everything up, left us the extra food in the fridge, bagged all the trash and then left no trace that they were at the wedding beyond the happy 92 guests and the leftovers. I'm sorry that this is our last daughter's wedding. We'd hire SYB again in a heartbeat! More...

I hired Soraya to Cater our Open House. This was the best decision I could have made. I was filled with questions leading up to the event and was very impressed with how fast she got back to me every time. She walked me through the process so that I was very comfortable having her take the lead on set up and execution of the event. The owner of the company told me the next day that I "hit the ball out of the park" with the party and I have Soraya to Thank for that! I will definitely be hiring her again for work functions, even for my own wedding someday! More...

Hiring Soraya from S.Y.B. Event planning was the best wedding decision we made! She is extremely professional, friendly, organized and literally takes care of EVERYTHING. We originally contacted her for catering services (she has connections with many great restaurants and chefs and really works with you to build your perfect menu-organizing tastings and hand picking each menu item) but she also helped us with everything from finding a DJ to working with our hotel venue to manage the day-of coordination. I would highly recommend you take advantage of Soraya's "Day-of Coordination" service-she works non-stop to make sure everything flows smoothly, coordinating with all of your vendors and managing the timeline for your entire wedding reception. You do not even notice that she is there during the reception-she works so quickly and behind-the scenes ensuring that everything is perfect! She truly is the fairy godmother every wedding needs!Soraya also has a great specialty and understanding working with multi-cultural weddings. As a fusion Indian/American wedding she was very attentive in accommodating our unique needs (ex. building a fusion menu).I cannot say enough how S.Y.B Event planning, whether you hire them for catering or planning services, is the best decision you will make for your wedding planning!

We are very happy with SYB event planning. We wanted to have a wedding celebration in our backyard and did not want to spend too much yet wanted it look classy. With Soraya's help, we managed to do just that. She was great to work with, always accessible and very resourceful! We were expecting about 100 people and initially were not sure if we want a event planner but we are just so glad we went with one in the end. She was on top of everything and made sure every small detail was taken care of. Her recommendations for caterer and liquor suppliers were excellent. Food was top notch and we saved a lot on the liquor even though we had a pretty well stocked bar with all kinds of liquor. All in all we were very happy with Soraya's event planning services and would definitely recommend her. More...
