We hosted our wedding reception at the Sentinel, and we couldn't have been happier with the venue and the team at Jake's. Kirsten was wonderful to work with—warm, patient, resourceful, organized, and insightful. We had our cocktail hour in the Renaissance Room and a dinner reception and dancing in the Grand Ballroom, with a total of about 200 guests. The food was excellent, the bartending solid, and the venue beautiful.Sent on 05/22/2018
We rented an ivory drape to cover the stage in the Grand Ballroom, chiavari chairs, and some gold accents—but no further rentals or external decorations were needed; the space is gorgeous as-is. If you're looking for a classic vibe and a venue that doesn't require lots of external rentals, consider the Sentinel!

Kirsten, the Catering Sales Manager, is the sweetest, kindest person and made working with Jake's the best experience. We utilized a newer service Jake's offers for food catering pick-up, which was very easy to use. We placed the order and day of everything was packaged up for easy transport. We did a picnic wedding so ordered sandwiches - which included individual bags of chips and huge chocolate chip cookies. We also had a very pretty fruit display and multiple picnic salads. Kirsten was always quick to respond and was very helpful with our changing wedding plan. My now husband and I cannot wait to renew our wedding vows in a few years and use the Sentinel's Library for a beautiful party. I highly recommend Jake's!Sent on 07/25/2018
