Essex is simply the best!
Amazing time and everyone loved it!
My perfect wedding at the Essex Club!
Now onto the day of my wedding, Rob the maître d was AMAZING. He took care of everything, and the event flowed without any hiccups. My guests kept talking about how organized the wedding was. And Ana, my bridal attendant also did a great job. Not only did she help me and my husband throughout the night but also helped us with translating from English to Spanish to my parents who do not speak English. Ana and Rob also did an amazing Job at bustling my dress. It was so difficult to do and took some time, but it came out beautiful. I got compliments about the way my dress was bustled during the night.
All the staff was amazing. My guests truly enjoyed the food and the drinks. People loved the taco bar for the cocktail hour and the short ribs for our plated dinner. Everything looked classy and amazing, and everybody felt well taken care of.
The only regret I have was not going for their regular wedding package for 100 people. I ended up way over the guest count for the petite package which is 50 people and had to pay extra for a few things to accommodate the extra people. Their regular package would have probably been cheaper. Lauren had recommended for this to me, and I wished I listened to her. A piece of advice, listen to what they recommend you. The have been in the wedding business for years and they know better.
Finally, a big Thanks to the Essex club for making my planning process stress-free and my wedding day so special!
