From beginning to end, Peter was awesome to work with. He was very knowledgable and patient, he truly made us feel so comfortable. The team as a whole were so professional, polite, and efficient. The food was delicious, definitely the best "wedding" food I have ever tasted. Overall, it was an amazing experience and we couldn't have been happier! Thank you Concorde, Peter, and John for an unforgettable experience.

Our Labor Day Weekend wedding was a blast! EVERYONE raved about the delicious good and gorgeous venue.
We had the beautiful Room A with the huge windows - we loved seeing the trees outside, all lit up at night - it didn't feel like we were enclosed in some random banquet ballroom. For our main course, we chose a combination of filet mignon and grilled salmon, highly recommend! The bridal private room was right behind the bar and next to the bathrooms - very convenient! A+
Our ceremony was in the garden patio (one of the main reasons we chose Concorde) - it was not only very pretty but also very convenient to have the whole wedding in one place. We had 120 people in attendance, but the area could've easily fit 200 or more, it's bigger than it looks. Bonus: swans in the lake!! A+
(The only complaint would be that there was another wedding (reception only) starting at the same time as our ceremony. We were worried about mixing the two weddings and yes, that happened. My bridal party and some guests told me that bridesmaids of the other wedding were taking casual group photos *right at the entrance* of our ceremony site as our guests watched *and even had the nerve to move away our mirror sign for their photos*, which made some of our guests confused and they went to wait inside, not entirely sure whose wedding ceremony should be outdoors. This delayed the start of our ceremony a bit as we had our groomsmen go out to sort the situation out. Of course it's normal to have multiple events start at the same time, but I suggest a little more instruction from Concorde to those other parties as to not interfere with someone else's ceremony... To Concorde's defense though, those bridesmaids were plain rude and classless, or just completely lacking common sense!)
Overall, we had a great time, and we wish to return some day for more events, whether as hosts or as guests! Thanks John, Peter and Concorde!
