The perfect venue and caterer!
We loved everything about our wedding at the Guilford Yacht Club and working with Gourmet Galley. Marissa McCue was our wedding coordinator and day-of-event planner. She was responsive, did not hesitate to accommodate our special requests and all of the questions back and forth. Her staff on the day of the event were also amazing- Kyle was able to take over once Marissa left for the night and continued to make sure all of our needs were met and that the night continued smoothly. We ended up with 145 guests, which was the perfect fit for the room and our guests continue to say how amazing our wedding was- from the setting, to the food to our speciality cocktails- I wouldn't have changed a thing!Sent on 11/20/2018

Amazing from the first chat with Marissa. She is an amazing person and cares deeply about making you happy and getting your wedding to be exactly what you want. The food was incredible (get the lobster roll apps) and everyone is still raving about it. The wait staff was also so kind and accommodating. On my wedding day some of the staff was assigned just to my husband and I and they made sure we didnt miss any of the food being passed at cocktail hour. They came to us during our pictures with trays of apps and made sure our drinks were full. Can't say enough great things, our wedding day was amazing thank you to Gourmet Galley and Marissa:)Sent on 09/03/2018

We couldn't have been happier with this venue and the catering company, Gourmet Galley! We had our wedding here on 8/5/17. We held the ceremony out over the lawn. It is 3 months later and our guests are still raving about the gorgeous views. Marissa McCue was our coordinator and event planner on the day. I cannot say enough about Marissa. She made sure that every small detail was planned perfectly. The day could not have been smoother due to her planning and organization. She was wonderful to work with through out the entire process. She made sure to take the time to meet as many times as I needed before the big day. We had 200 guests and used the tented patio as an extension of the indoor venue to accommodate all of our guests. I was concerned that this may make the guests outside feel disconnected from the venue, but this was 100% not the case! The large windows made the tented patio feel part of the actual indoor room. It was a beautiful night and many guests ended up walking outside later in the evening. Everyone says "something will go wrong on your day and you just have to let it go", for us we can honestly say that not one thing went wrong! I attribute this to the venue, the catering company, Marissa specifically and all of our wonderful vendors. If you choose to go with the GYC and Gourmet Galley you will not be disappointed!Sent on 11/06/2017
