    Two weddings, One day

    My wedding was August 5th and I wish I could relive it over and over again. The level of service was absolutely unmatched. Coming from a serving industry I have the tendency of to be proactive and get things done myself but Isis didn't even let me TOUCH A THING when I first arrived. She truly treated me like it was my way and I could literally have anything I wanted. If I wanted shots, I got shots - If I wanted more food, I got more food. If I had asked her to reheat the food that was in my husband and I's suite that turned cold due to the day running behind, I know she would have. Our attendants were LOVELY. Handing me my lipgloss before even requesting. My guests 6 months later are still talking about how our wedding was the best they've ever been to. The price tag is worth the service. Trust me, you are in more than good hands. I look forward to my next event there !

    Best night of our lives!

    Oh, what a night it was! Now that the dust has settled, I can wrap my head around the incredible memories! Allan Janoff, Crystal Plaza, what can I say? You helped us make our daughter鈥檚 wedding the wedding of her dreams! Without your guidance, outstanding food, magnificent venue, and incredible staff we would never have been able to make it the most special and perfect evening it was. You reacted to every question, small or large as if it was the most important question of the day. You responded to every email, phone call, and request with the same sense of urgency that we felt, even though they weren鈥檛 really urgent鈥ou respected us from the moment we walked into your office and went out of your way to accommodate every line item we had. Thank you for that.

    Your staff, what can I say? They are kind, polite, professional, and they treated us like royalty. The day was just perfect, from the moment we arrived. The bridal party in the Penthouse, and the groom and his groomsmen in the Vault, surely an experience they will never forget. The ballroom was magnificent, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious! Our friends and family are still raving about how incredible everything was. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the memories that will last a lifetime!
