Elizabeth Caparaz, February 2015 Birthday Party

“Hi Jelynne,

I want to say thank you for accommodating our party last Saturday. We had an absolute blast! As usual, the cocktails and food were delicious. Our waiter was a dream come true. He was so attentive and he completely understood our Twin Peaks themed party. He even played the theme song for us as my friend blew out her birthday candles. Your staff really went above and beyond to make my friend’s birthday special. I cannot thank you enough!
Looking forward to visiting LITM again soon!
Christine Green, January 2012 Baby Shower

“I had the pleasure of having my baby shower there two weeks ago and it was a BLAST! Emily was a great help with planning everything and Sammy and Shane were the best bartenders ever. THANK YOU for the wonderful memories, LITM ♥”

Petula Shyu, September 2011 Rehearsal Dinner

“After our first visit to LITM for dinner, based off of a recommendation, we were sold that this was the ideal place for our rehearsal dinner. Plus, who wouldn’t want their rehearsal dinner to take place at a restaurant/bar/gallery named LITM (Love is the Message). The rehearsal dinner itself was perfect!  Emily coordinated directly with me, was on top of every detail prior to our event and was on-site along with another manager and the owner to oversee the event.  The staff was attentive and catered to all of our needs including helping to serve the kids that attended our rehearsal dinner immediately.  There was an overabundance of food and every dish was delicious, especially the Mac & Cheese.  Our guests, especially those who traveled cross country, were impressed with the space, the hip vibe and the staff at LITM.  We want to thank everyone at LITM for helping us make our rehearsal dinner a memorable night!”

Elise Nussbaum and Mike Segretto, May 2010 Wedding & Reception

Dear Jelynne,  A big, BIG thank you for being such a wonderful hostess and friend for our wedding!  I always knew that LITM would be a fantastic place to get married, and this proved me right times ten!  First of all, the atmosphere was perfect – so warm and welcoming, and the lighting was great, especially the fabric/light combo on the ceiling, which was gorgeous.  (The altar with the fabric looked great too.)  I also wanted to thank you for being so patient and accommodating with all my requests – I (we) really appreciate everything you did to make sure the night was perfect.  And it was!  Lastly, thanks for naming your place “Love is the Message” and not “Fangtasia” or something.  I love you!!!

Tracey and Mark Blank, Rehearsal Dinner & Son’s 1st Birthday

My son Cooper turned 1 in April and my husband and I were thinking of a great place to have his birthday party.  We knew there would be more adults than kids, so we wanted a place that had great finger foods and fun drinks, but also kid friendly enough.  I had my rehearsal dinner for my wedding at LITM and we loved the place, so we thought it would be a great place and a nice story to say that we also had our son’s first birthday party at LITM as well.   Love Is The Message (LITM) after all!  We couldn’t have been happier with our choice!  We were able to hold Cooper’s party at LITM before the restaurant was open to the public, so we had the place all to ourselves (along with our guests).  The staff was amazing, the food (as usual) was scrumptious and the drinks kept on flowing.  LITM also let us play whichever movies we wanted on their TV screens.  All in all, we were extremely pleased with everything and our guests were too.  For any special occasion, we’d 100% suggest LITM being your next venue of choice!

Jan Tompkins and Aaron Jackson, July 2009 Wedding Reception

“On July 18th, 2009 we had the pleasure of having our wedding reception at LITM. As one of our favorite restaurants and a place that has been the home of more happy memories then we could count LITM was the natural choice as the place to celebrate our nuptials.

The owner Jelynne and her staff were outstanding. They were always available in the preparation, accommodating of our own idiosyncrasies and tireless in their effort, and they did it all on relatively short notice! Since we were planning our wedding just a few months before the date, we had to expedite the usual planning process. We had time for just one visit to the restaurant to talk about capacity and floor plan options as well as begin discussing options for our menu and the bar. We were given several dining options for our guests, from formal seating with 3-5 course meals to a more flexible buffet and hors d’oeuvres style arrangement where guests can serve and seat themselves as they wish.
We knew the menu well and had experienced weekly ‘tastings’ since they began serving food. Not having time to do a proper tasting, we worked out the dishes we wanted using the prices listed on, deciding on a brunch menu for our guests and planning remaining details through several emails and phone calls with Jelynne. We worked out a special bar menu with a combination of existing drinks from the bar and custom-designed drinks to go with brunch, as well as a champagne toast. We had our wedding cake delivered from our favorite bakery and the staff made sure it looked beautiful on the table they had arranged. We let Jelynne pick out flowers for the tables and she selected the most beautiful bouquets for us as well as our families. The tabletops looked very modern and classy even before we brought in our personalized décor for the occasion.
The brunch menu was perfect for our early afternoon reception, as well as a hit with both our family and friends. The meat eaters and the vegetarians left equally satisfied. One of the highpoints was the modern art on the walls, a great topic of conversation for our guests as well as a fun source of one of a kind ambiance and built-in décor for the many pictures being taken.
Without question we all thoroughly enjoyed our reception and we would recommend LITM to anybody interested in a fantastic location for a special wedding celebration.”
Michael Barnes,  July 2011 Birthday Celebration

Hey Jelynne! I just wanted to say “THANK YOU”!!! It was a great party, everyone enjoyed themselves, the food was great (as usual!), and the staff were very attentive and had a great time as well. The live music was a big hit, too! Thank you for accommodating us, for the wonderful environment you have created at LITM, and for being a gracious friend. I will stop by soon to repeat all of this in person! Big love to you, Jelynne!  p.s. – the birthday cake had EVERYONE moaning with pleasure!! it was sooooo good!
