    Exceptional, Professional, & Personable

    If you are planning your wedding, you have to know how exceptional Katie Curran has been at The Galt House. Katie has gone above and beyond to make sure our day is exactly what we dream of for our wedding and has been very helpful working within our budget. She has wonderful communication, which is one of the most important things for planning a wedding. The Galt House renovations are elegantly modern and the views are the best in the city. The best part, there are so many different options for what you want your wedding to look like. Huge plus here-The Galt House provides so many things that you usually have to rent at most venues. Weddings can be stressful to plan, but Katie has made planning everything such a fun and exciting time. I cannot wait to wake up at The Galt House on our wedding day!

    Turned out amazing

    We chose the Rivue because of the beautiful venue and the view it offered with the convenience of having a hotel attached. In the year we had a contract with the Galt House we had three coordinators which was frustrating and unassuring. Our first coordinator Courtney was amazing, our second coordinator was stressful, and our third coordinator Brooke was amazing! I lived out of town and it became exhausting constantly scheduling time towards reexplaining my vision, going over what had previously been promised and hoping the same would hold true with the next person. The first tasting was a terrible experience as it tasted like my family and I were eating cold day old food and it was not what we had picked out (this occurred during the time of our second coordinator). I was unable to attend the "redo" as I lived out of town but my family said it was a 5 star tasting and that they didn't want to leave (this occurred when our third coordinator was in charge). After we got through the many months of frustration due to administration change everything came together because of one person, Brooke.. Brooke Valentine did an absolutely incredible job taking over and went 100% above and beyond to make sure our wedding was perfect and stress free. She had a lot to of questions to answer that previous administration did not get around to and she did it all in a timely fashion. She was extremely easy to talk to, very understanding and accommodating. She rein-stilled the confidence and trust that every bride needs in a coordinator. I am so thankful she took over and I will always recommend the Galt House as a wedding venue as long as Brooke is in charge!

    Galt House Hotel's reply:

    It was a pleasure to be part of your special day, Amanda! Your kind words mean SO much to me and will stay with me forever. Your day was beautiful and I love what I do because of clients like you! Thank you for your feedback and I hope to see you soon! :)

    The Galt House is my reception location and I cannot wait! The ballroom is spectacular and Courtney/Amber are great to work with. They respond to e-mails in a timely manner and are willing to help accomodate whatever I need to make my dream come true! They are also willing to help keep my budget in line-We are staying there the night of and the bride and groom and parents of the bride get a free room!
