    So far So Good

    Kress Terrace has been super responsive and has answered all my emails within 5 min maybe less. They setup a tour pretty quickly and we booked the same day for NYE 2019!! I am so bad with names but the young lady that gave us the tour(I think her name was Jennifer but maybe not lol) was really nice. Quick and to the point. But not too quick. I hate when people waste my time. I am def going to request that she is the person I work with from here on out and that she is the staff member that's there on the day of. My Fiance is not a people person and really doesn't have too much to say about things. It's whatever I want but he said let's use her. So that was good enough for me as he finds something wrong with just about everybody lol. But after the tasting I will leave another review. After my meeting for the setup,floor plans and linens, I will leave another review and after the actual wedding I will leave my final review.

    The Hurricane Bride

    This vendor saved our wedding. I was a displaced bride because of hurricane Florence and not only did they open their venue for me, they made our wedding day perfect. I would choose them a thousand time over and over.
