    Beyond Words!

    It’s hard to find all of the words to describe how incredibly amazing the Bear Mountain Wedding experience was. They really made the day the best day of our lives. From the moment I sat down on our tour with Valerie, it was clear that this was where we would get married. She took care of everything right from the start - and not just wedding details and planning, but throughout the process she took amazing care of us and really made us feel special and welcome. Together with Gia & Alyssa, they removed any stress, worry or chaos about weddings, which is a pretty impossible feat. Mina is another team member who wasn’t part of our wedding planning but somehow she managed to be part of it and make the experience that much greater. What I am saying is - that entire team is absolute FIRE and you can rest easy in their hands. They are a FANTASTIC crew from from front desk to the kitchen. The chef is OUTSTANDING. The food is INCREDIBLE. The space is GORGEOUS and everything about every moment is WARM and WONDERFUL.

    On the day of it felt as though the team were part of our family. Everything was smooth and as care free as a wedding day can be. And for that I am eternal grateful and recommend this team for your wedding, events, or for any occasion or emergency! They’ve got your back. (Valerie is a saint!)

    Whatever wedding dream you have, they bring it to life. All the stars. And all the thumbs up (my husband was born with 3 thumbs, and if that 3rd thumb were still around, it would be up too!)
