The highlight of our wedding day was undoubtedly the stunning sunset that adorned the horizon as we exchanged our vows. It felt like a fairytale come true, and I am forever grateful to the team for making that moment possible. Their attention to detail and dedication to ensuring every aspect of our day was perfect truly made us feel like VIPs.
The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and preferences. From the initial planning stages to the day of the event, they were professional, friendly, and attentive. They listened to our vision and executed it flawlessly, making the entire planning process a breeze.
I cannot recommend this wedding venue enough. It truly exceeded all of our expectations and made our dream wedding a reality. If you are searching for a venue that will take your breath away, provide top-notch service, and make you feel like a VIP, look no further. Trust me, it is worth every penny.
The best day Ever!!
Wow, what a day!
Polly is amazing. She takes the time to listen, ask the right questions and make sure you feel comfortable during every step of the planning process. Her team was so great to work with and even though most of the planning was done virtually since don't live in California anymore, we felt so cared for.
Polly took the time during our phone calls and video conferences to explain the details and get us the best deal for our budget. When we did visit in-person, the team was able to show us the boat, let us taste the amazing cake and helped us pick external vendors for our flowers and food. And our day was truly amazing. Every guest loved it and we honestly had such a fun and relaxing day because of all the behind the scenes work Polly and her team did.
We have stayed in touch with Polly 2 years after our wedding and are excited for the friendship that has formed. Strongly recommend checking them out!!
