    Grand Wedding Experience

    We celebrated our daughter’s wedding at the Grand Galvez on Saturday night. Everything was perfect from the planning process with Angela in Catering, to the venue, to the delicious food served. The hotel was under major renovation, but the hotel made it where it was not noticeable at all. We had the wedding outdoors at night in the Oleander Garden, and the reception in the Terrace Ballroom. I had guest give me rave reviews all night about the entire event. On Sunday, we had guest stay for the Grand Galvez wonderful Sunday brunch. What a great wedding weekend and wonderful wedding experience.
