Ms. Ryann Hastings

Infectious giggle? Check. Crazy work ethic? Got it. Passion for event planning? All over it! Total score for us that our newest team member, Ryann Hastings is the total package. A recent grad from the Hospitality & Tourism Management program at SDSU, Ryann not only dresses super cute everyday but incorporates that sophisticated eye for style into her event design.

A fun fact about our new gal: eventually she would love to have her own bakery and lifestyle home goods store. Since she loves sweet treats, candles and flowers why not put them all in one place!

Oh and by the way, if she’s not working late or hitting a Pilates class, you can find her at her local go-to for the best food & bev, Craft & Commerce in Little Italy, yum!!!

Thrive On!!!

Who knew the topic of food allergens/dietary lifestyles could be so compelling, but Tracy Stuckrath with Thrive Meetings and Events not only makes sense of it, but even makes learning about it fun!
The girl knows her stuff!
Spending the better part of her morning with us, Tracy shared her extensive knowledge about all of the special dietary buzz words that any smart trend setting caterer really needs to be aware of these days—gluten, celiac, vegan, vegetarian, paleo…flexitarian anyone??

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Jones


One of our own had a beautiful wedding in early November.Diego has been a key member of the Crown Point Catering team for nearly a decade now. His un-wavering commitment to this organization has contributed to our success tremendously.
Diego and his beautiful bride Rona were married November 8th, 2010 at Julie’s house in Pacific Beach . Although the weather in the early morning looked to be tragic, the sky’s opened up with sunshine for the ceremony and reception. Congratulations you two. All the Best from the Crown Point Catering Team.
