Great modern and minimalist venue!
Coordination and organization for payments and documents up until the event day was an absolute breeze. This wasn’t something I was expecting to be so appreciative of until I was deep into the wedding planning process. Blanco uses an online portal where you can make all of your payments, access invoices and receipts, and view upcoming payment due dates, making it very easy to keep track of everything.
The Blanco team was also a pleasure to work with! We worked with Chrissy for the initial coordination, Renee for the preparation up until the event and then with both Renee and Hailey the day of. They were all so helpful and welcoming to make sure we had everything set and ready to go for the rehearsal and wedding day. Hailey even assisted me with my dress change as I was rushing between reception activities! They made sure we felt well taken care of and we couldn’t be more grateful!
