We had an amazing wedding reception at the Riverside Church catered by Pasha Events! The Assembly Hall space was gorgeous (even when empty!) with its tall, arched ceilings and stained glass windows. It was also large enough to accommodate our 200+ guests, 2 buffet stations, 2 bars, a photo booth, AND a large dance floor! At first, I was concerned that we wouldn't be able to fit everything in without having our guests feeling crammed together. But Leigh was so helpful in alleviating all my concerns and fears about the space! I must have sent a million emails throughout the planning process, but she was very patient and quick to respond to all my questions. Very professional as they've been doing weddings for a long time!
The food was amazing as well! We went with the buffet option and had plenty of options to choose from for our reception. There was more than enough food for all our guests, who absolutely LOVED the chicken & waffles dish! They're all still raving about it :)
I would definitely recommend Pasha to our friends and family. We had such a great experience!

Pasha Events did a great job for my wedding at the Riverside Church on 6/1/13. The food and the service was great not to mention the gorgeous set up they did. Everything was set up just as I imagined it would be. Considering other NYC venues for large weddings this is a great value. Leigh was always there to lend a helping hand and was very calm throughout the whole planning process.

My wedding reception was catered by Pasha Events at the Riverside Church in NYC! My guest are still commenting about the great food. The food was both plentiful and delicious. I would recommend this vendor to anyone who wants a beautiful event with outstanding food. We definitely received what we paid for! Gieto, Leigh and the staff were kind and very professional.

Pasha Events was great to work with. The exclusive caterer of Riverside Church, we were directed to them immediately upon deciding on Riverside Church's Assembly Hall for our wedding reception.
The staff was professional, prompt and accommodating, and we came away pleased with everything from the planning period to the delivery of the big day. The spaces will take your breath away, and Pasha did a phenomenal job at filling them with exquisite food and decor. Two months later, our friends and family are still raving about the varied food we had set out at our several stations (I'm from CT and my groom's from TX...and Pasha delivered on everything from New England clam chowder to true Texan barbeque and TexMex).
Accommodating, helpful, experienced, and impressive. Trust Pasha to help build the wedding of your dreams... you'll be in good hands!

Working with Pasha Events was an absolute dream, from beginning to end. They helped me to make my vision of a perfect wedding a reality. Leigh, the catering manager, was incredibly accessible, knowledgeable, professional and caring. She took each of my ideas and made it come to fruition in the most beautiful way possible. I had no stress at all on the day of my wedding, because I knew that every little detail would be completed with loving care. All of my guests raved over the exquisite spaces of Riverside Church, as well as the delicious food. Specifically Pasha uses only the highest quality ingredients and has a sophisticated, unique, modern menu that is a huge step up from boring wedding grub. The entire Pasha Events team was a pleasure to work with, including the owner Gieto, Kevin, and many others. They make you feel like you are incredibly important to them. I had many specific requests for lighting, linens, decor, etc and absolutely everything went perfectly. Many people told me it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend PASHA EVENTS to the bride who wants a gorgeous unforgettable New York City wedding, with the least amount of stress possible!!!!

My husband and I had our reception catered by Pasha Events at The Riverside Church on December 3, 2011 and enjoyed the BEST wedding dinner any of our guests or us has ever experienced.
Leigh Hall-Wilhelm, Director of Catering, did an outstanding job working with our tight budget and my bridezilla moments :) Leigh went way past the call of duty and helped us finalize the PERFECT menu in our budget.
The braised beef was so tender, it melted in your mouth and where to begin with the appetizers...WOW. Everything was just perfect. The hall was decorated very elegantly, butlers extremely kind and attentive and there was always someone there making sure each and every one of our needs was met!
To say Pasha Events exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Leigh and her team are masters, extremely professional and experts at what they do.
Thank you Leigh and Pasha Events for the best day :)

Every thing went right at our wedding and we owe that to the wonderful job done by Pasha caterers. The outdoor courtyard was set up beautifully for the ceremony and the hors d'oevres were very good. The inside room at Morningside Castle was totally elegant. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The caterers were attentive to our every need and accommodated our guests graciously. A beautiful setting and a beautiful wedding.

I cannot rave about Pasha Events enough. I had my wedding at Morningside Castle this past weekend but have been working with Leigh and Gieto to plan this wedding for over a year.
The food was excellent; there are lots of choices for seated dinner as well as a cocktail hour. The open bar option is competitively priced.
Leigh and Gieto are professional, attentive, and quick thinking. They really know their stuff in this industry but are also really easy to work with and approachable.
They truly made our wedding unforgettable.
Other info: Wedding was October 2011 for 130 guests.

Food was delicious and all guests could not get over how it was the "best filet mignon" that they ever had. The service was unbeatable. We had a private waiter for the bride and groom. The wedding planner/maiter d was amazing and was there for our every need. They worked with us for over and year in planning and it was because of Pasha Events that the wedding came together like it did!!

This is a long overdue review for Pasha Events, who catered our wedding in mid-October at the beautiful Riverside Church. Even two months later, my friends and family are still raving about the food, professionalism, and atmosphere. The catering was very important to us, as my husband is in the restaurant business and we had a lot of guests in the industry that we wanted to show a good time. I have received compliment after compliment from our 100+ guests that this was the best wedding they had been to with the best food and best open bar, which is really the best feedback a bride can hear!
To me, our wedding was perfect, and we really owe a lot of that to Pasha. When we first went to Riverside and met Gieto, we were very impressed with the food options offered and the affordability (it is Manhattan after all). All the options were clearly laid out; there were no surprises, which was really a relief. The food choices were all so good that it was actually hard to pick.
From the first meeting, to our tasting, to the wedding, we were always treated with respect - to the point where we felt like our event was just as important to them as it was for us. We were in constant contact about details, and they were always so accommodating with our questions and requests. On the night of the wedding there was really nothing we had to worry about. They set up everything so beautifully, and transformed an already beautiful space to our special vision. We never had to ask about anything - it was all such a smooth process. I was also really impressed by how professional and courteous the waiters and waitresses were, going out of their way to make sure that as busy as we were, my husband and I had everything we needed in addition to tending to all of our guests needs.
I would highly recommend Pasha. In fact, we've been talking about what event we can throw so have the same experience again! I cannot thank them enough for my lifetime memory of the perfect night.
Thank you Leigh and Gieto for your hard work from Marguerite and Konrad, married 10/16/2010.

I have absolutely nothing but wonderful things to say about Pasha Events. We used Pasha Events for our wedding and everything was absolute perfection from the first time we met them until the very last second when we drove away. They were extremely professional, accommodating, helpful, and courteous throughout the entire process. They made our wedding planning easy. They really listened to everything we wanted and worked to make it happen. They were always available to answer any questions we had or ease any concerns. They spoke with all of the other vendors directly, which left us with even less to worry about during the planning process. On the day of our wedding, they had everything completely taken care of, there was not one thing we had to worry about!! They really went above and beyond. And if their service wasn't good enough, their food was absolutely phenomenal!! Three months after our wedding, we are still getting compliments and comments about how great our food was! We had such a hard time picking the menu at the tasting because everything was delicious! We have recommended Pasha Events to everyone we know (whether they're getting married or not!), and we HIGHLY recommend Pasha Events to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed. They made everything we wanted possible, and they made our wedding day even more special and perfect than we ever could have hoped for!! If you are looking at Pasha Events, stop looking!!! You will be beyond happy!
Thank you Pasha Events!

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Pasha Events! They catered my wedding reception that took place at The Riverside Church. From the very first meeting, Gieto was incredibly friendly and very accomodating. His side-kick, Leigh, who came on a little later in the process was spectacular and catered to our every need. We had vegans and gluten free guests and children, and they took care of it all! The reception was incredible, and I have to attribute most of its success to Pasha Events who helped set up everything for us!! The food was to die for, and every guest we spoke to agreed that it was the best "wedding" food they had ever had! The options for food were so delicious it made it difficult to choose from. And don't even get me started on the desserts they come up with! Let's just say you'll have to book Pasha Events just to get a taste of their "Oreo Cheesecake!" All in all, I wouldn't hesitate for a second with this company. The price is right, the people are beyond friendly, the food is DELICIOUS and the service was spectacular! Thanks for everything Gieto & Leigh, you truly made our wedding a night we'll never forget... especially the cake topper story which we still laugh about to this day! :)

I had Pasha Events cater my reception. I was a little apprehensive at first because our ceremony was at Riverside Church and if we wanted our reception there we had to use their caterer. I am so glad we did. The food was really tasty and cooked to perfection. Wedding food is never all that great. My guests continue to tell me that the food was the best wedding food they ever had. In addition, Brides don't forget to ask for a doggy bag, because seriously you may not get to eat the food you paid for. You will be sooo busy.
