We got married at Dell Lea Sept 22, 2017. Dinner and service was impeccable at the reception, our guests we're so impressed with the special flare with which their meal was served! Toutou and David truly care about your experience and we're available all night to assist in any way they could. They were extremely flexible, working with us on any special requests we had, and they even act as your day of coordinator too, tracking the schedule and coordinating with officiant, dj, etc to keep everything going. Finally, even our vendors loved working our event at Dell-Lea because there is only one event there each day - yours! - so it makes their setup and takedown so easy, and they're super easy to work with. We loved our day and the whole experience and highly recommend them!Sent on 05/23/2018
Dell-Lea Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you Shannon and Aaron for your wonderful review and feedback. We truly enjoyed helping you plan your wedding day and had a lot of fun doing so. The photographer sent us some of your beautiful wedding photos. We share it with our guests when they come in for a tour. We loved how you personalized your wedding and made it so much fun. All the guests loved the fireworks at the end of the night! On behalf of the staff, David and myself, we wish you nothing but continued happiness and a million more memories together.
