    5 Star Service on a budget!

    Planning was very easy with Gaelic Park! I had NO vision. Luckily, the team had tons of options, and also great suggestions on decor, centerpieces, even how to tie the sash on the chair. Sharon drew out a floor plan and her and Renatta made sure everything was where I wanted it to be!

    The food was great, plentiful and they also have several vegetarian options. Bar package had several drink options, and I don't think anyone went thirsty that evening.

    I highly recommend attending their bridal show- you can find a lot of vendors you might need from here, and many of these vendors work closely with Gaelic Park- making day of plans REALLY seamless, as they have all worked well with each other in the past. They can coordinate things like flower drop off, DJ set up all with out you needing to worry when who is showing up and where!

    Great job to all, best day ever! See you again soon :)
