    Beautiful put together reception

    Marty went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly what we envisioned. He ensured that everything would come together, and he exceeded our expectations. From the food, desserts, the staff, and decor. It was amazing!!

    Marty, Jessica and Kyle are simply amazing!!

    Every time I called Jessica to change something or if I had questions in general, she insisted that I come in and see. Finally when I made my mind up, Jessica was there to reassure me that everything would look gorgeous(she talked me out of a tacky table cloth!)
    The day before my wedding I took all of our favors and other décor and Jessica and Kyle were there to tell me everything would be fine.

    The morning of my wedding, I went down to the venue to make sure nothing else needed to be done(my ocd), Jessica and Kyle both shared a bottle of champagne with me to tell me everything would be fine.

    Thanks ladies for such an amazing experience!!

    Great place for a wedding reception!

    Marty and his staff provided my daughter with the perfect wedding! They were responsive to all of our needs and the food, service and venue were outstanding. Every last detail was as important to them as it was to us. We could not have been more pleased.
