"Who can you turn to when you want turn-key event planning and catering excellence for an intimate group of, say, 300 family and friends? Let me suggest Danielle Paulding at Hudson Valley Trendsetters!!
Last summer we experienced the most amazing wedding we’ve ever been a part of in our not-so-short lives – planned, executed and catered to perfection by Hudson Valley Trendsetters …and I do mean perfection. This was no mean feat! The site itself surely was one of the most challenging we could imagine: a many-acre piece of paradise here in the Hudson Valley with no amenities whatsoever! No power, no water, no restrooms, no buildings – just a beautiful grove of mature trees adjoining a large field a half-mile down a winding old farm road. The transformation would prove astounding – everything from quiet commercial power generation to clubhouse-style air-conditioned restroom buildings with full amenities. 
Picture this: that access road became a way to set the mood -- ‘planted’ with wedding-themed ‘slogans’ for all to enjoy as we slowly motored to a well-managed parking area -- chauffeured golf carts waiting for those in need of assistance to proceed to the reception area. Numerous elegantly-draped meet-and-greet cocktail tables decorated the mature forest understory of the reception area, anchored by a large well-staffed bar with myriad libations, plus a huge self-serve groaning-table of Italian specialties including home-made cured sausage, cheeses and many truly delectable morsels. As if that weren’t enough there were also several staff continually serving freshly baked traditional appetizers. And that’s just while everyone was gathering and enjoying taking pictures and posing in the clever ‘photo-frames’ placed so family and friends could ham-it-up and snap some fun memorable pics before the main event. 
In due course we ambled to the main tent where we picked-up our table card and were escorted to a beautifully adorned round table. The main tent was truly extraordinary – looked to be about 50’ x 75’ with 25-30’ tall spires – tables left and right with music and wood dance floor centrally located. A dozen commercial air movers strategically positioned around the perimeter made for a very comfortable and pleasant experience even on this otherwise sultry summer afternoon as we enjoyed the music, the merriment and everyone’s company -- and some wonderful on-site chef-roasted meats to complement the yummy traditional Italian food and drink at this paramount wedding made extra special by Danielle and her extraordinary team.
Actually my wife and I were so impressed with the whole affair -- thoughtful planning, extensive preparations and authentic home-made foods from amazing appetizers to delectable deserts and coffees -- that we had to inquire who did all this -- and how? That was when we met Danielle Paulding, the engaging perfectionist-dynamo behind Hudson Valley Trendsetters. She runs the enterprise and oversaw the event – making sure everything went flawlessly, as planned and just as it should. We were simply stunned by the whole operation – the thoughtfulness, professionalism and helpfulness of the staff, and how such a complex feat was so well-planned and executed without a hitch – a family’s dream event transformed into a memorable reality by Hudson Valley Trendsetters.

We whole-heartedly recommend Hudson Valley Trendsetters for any event – they do a truly superb job. Kudos, Danielle!
