My wedding was amazing! Erin was awesome to work with. Unfortunately the day of my wedding was the hottest day of the year, however she was super flexible with moving everything inside and making sure everyone stayed cool. She was great at helping me with my nerves and helping move everything along throughout the ceremony and reception. She helped me pick my other vendors as well. I'd definitely recommend!Sent on 08/11/2019

We loved having our wedding at Compass Point. It was such a beautiful venue. As soon as our guests arrived at Compass Point, they couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful it was. The big oak trees, twinkling lights and the beautiful cottages make for a lovely setting. Throughout the planning process, Erin was wonderful to work with and was always flexible with our asks. We had a fusion wedding combining traditional, New Orleans, and Indian traditions and she always had suggestions and had knowledge in all three traditions. Even when we weren’t sure how something would work out, she provided solutions and guidance.Sent on 10/22/2019
Her and her staff made sure we had a stress-free and wonderful evening. The food was fantastic (seriously, I have one friend who won’t stop talking to me about the shrimp and grits). The staff was kind, polite and helpful. We also had Erin do our floral and table arrangements. I didn’t have a very specific vision, so I described a vague idea of what I had in my head and let Erin handle the rest. And wow, I was seriously impressed! It was so much better than I could have ever imagined. She graciously let us use much of the décor she already had which helped us save a bit on expenses and we didn’t have to worry about that aspect.
Erin made us feel so special on our day. I would definitely recommend having your wedding at Compass Point. We are so happy we did!

We were looking for an easy but beautiful venue. We didnt want to stress out making a million tiny decisions. Erin and her staff did great at taking hearing what was important to us, and then taking care of all the rest. Would definitely reccommend to anyone!Sent on 08/12/2019
