    I have no yet booked for my wedding, but this is without a doubt my favorite venue I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with! Out of all the places I called, the Kapok was the ONLY business that sent over information right away and was very informative and friendly on the phone. I had a meeting to tour the venue and fell in love with the people (randy and Nancy) and the venue itself. I cannot WAIT to have my wedding here it's going to be perfect. I will be sure to write another review once my wedding is all done and over with. The ladies were very helpful & made a ton of suggestions regarding my wedding that I've never even thought of before! I recommend this venue from what I've seen so far!

    Dream Wedding

    We could not say enough good things about this venue! We got the package deal including ceremony room, cocktail hour w/ hors d'oeuvres, reception, cake, and day of coordinator. Our day of coordinator was Jasmen and she was simply the BEST! She helped make sure everything was on time and ran smoothly. She was very organized and a huge help! Pam was also there day of making sure everything was running smoothly! All of the staff were great! Chef Vincent did all the food and everything tasted great and not to mention he is a really great person! Oh and the cake by Kelly was fantastically tasty!!! Everything was perfect for our wedding day! And the venue is so gorgeous ... We couldn’t have asked for more on our wedding day! It was a dream!

    I am so excited and thrilled to work at the Kapok Special events center. The location is so incredibly beautiful. The gardens are like an AMAZING SECRET GARDEN and the interiors is like a cross between Paris, Rome and Greece rolled into one. The Girls are fantastic and a total joy to work with Shirley, Deanna and of course Pam really love to give their clients the royal treatment. I just love that about them. I am looking forward to creating more events and continue to design for all the clients that chose to have their special event at the Kapok.
