“Being able to provide a unique and personalized experience for my clients’ catered events is high priority for me. I have worked very hard to develop trusting relationships so finding such skilled support from Ice Breakers was amazing.

They have designed one-of-a-kind visual displays that capture the theme of the event, whether it be a logo, or symbolic design and provide vessels that hold a specialized food item, then finish off with customized lighting.

When my clients and their guests enter the room to see these masterpieces, their eyes sparkle. What more could I ask for? Thank you Ice Breakers for always bringing your A-GAME, and doing it with professionalism, timeliness and flawless detailing”.

Every January for the past 22 years The Wentworth Hotel in Jackson NH hosts an annual ice carving competition. Inviting carvers and chefs from around New England, competitors have three hours to carve a 300 lb block of ice into a masterpiece. The Ice Breakers duo of Dennis Hickey and David Soha have been part of this tradition since the beginning and over the years have walked away with many of the prize spots. Most recently The Wentworth started a new annual tradition of an ice bar generally held in February. When we embarked on this venture there was no question on who to call to create this masterpiece of ice.

Dennis and Dave came up and spent almost two days creating for us the ice bar that we could only have dreamed of, with extra touches, ice benches and ideal carvings to incorporate into great photos for our guests to enjoy.
I have always and I am sure will continue to be very pleased by the creativity, reliability and quality of Ice Breakers.

There are so many great things I have to say about Ice Breakers. Dave and his team have incredible talent and are true professionals. We host over 150 weddings a year and have a multitude of on-site events.

They are always very inspired, creative and great to work with whenever we need a martini luge or even a custom carved ice bar (a favorite of our winter weddings). Every sculpture that they deliver is gorgeous. We here at the Bedford Village Inn value working with Dave and could not recommend Ice Breakers more highly.

“The Ice Breakers have been joining us in Nashua, NH for 20 years now, to share their talents with over 30,000 people at the Winter Holiday Stroll. Each year they come up with an exciting and fresh design, and are always a crowd favorite!”

“I have used Ice Breakers each year during the Christmas holidays to provide various Ice Sculptures such as fire places with stockings hung, Nutcrackers, Wine Racks, Christmas Trees and Train cars (to hold the jumbo shrimp). Both David Soha and Dennis Hickey have always maintained a professional manner and adhered to exactly what we wanted. Delivery and set up was always done on time and was the most anticipated display during these festive times.

The quality of their work is admirable and the detail in each and every piece is outstanding. It has been a joy working with them every year and we plan on continuing our relationship and know that whatever they design and deliver will be a remarkable piece of workmanship that we will enjoy the entire evening – and hear nothing but chatter from our guests of the beautiful piece, yet once again.”

“Dave and Dennis have been a big hit at the Derry Frost Festival Weekend over the last 5 years. You can tell they really like what they are doing by the constant smiles on their faces. People enjoy seeing their detailed work and they always take the time to answer questions. Every year Ice Breakers picks a new theme to entice the families to come into our downtown area. They have been a key event at our Frost Festival weekend and we always look forward to their artistic creations every year.”

Linda Benson, Frost Festival Committee Derry, NH

“It was my honor to present Ice Breakers (Dave Soha and Dennis Hickey) with the 2009 Purveyor of the Year Award from the American Culinary Federation Professional Chefs of New Hampshire. Dave and Dennis have supported our organization over the years by providing ice carvings for our events and have trained our student members and professional alike in the art of ice carving. Their work has always enhanced our events and I look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come.”

“It’s not a party at RiverMead without an ice carving from Ice Breakers. They completely “wow” us every time with a carving that matches our theme whether it is a Christmas caroler, nutcracker or snowflake; they are very creative and imaginative. Their ice carvings make our events special and memorable and they are great guys to work with.”
