    Save yourself the trouble!

    We had our wedding in June of 2022. Although the Groom and I have not had any supee bad experiences with Carolyn (owner) during this process, we wanted to make sure our bridal party and parents felt the same before writing reviews. Upon reaching out to them, the stories have remained the same. Multiple parties have alleged that Carolyn was rude and snippy during their few interactions. Below is a quick synopsis of things I was totally unaware of during the wedding but feel VERY disheartened about:

    - We were scheduled for rehearsal from 3pm to 5pm. Carolyn had a personal engagement scheduled in the middle of our scheduled rehearsal time and tried to rush our timeline.

    -Carolyn was very unorganized. Days leading up to the wedding, she asked for documentation that was already sent. This initially wouldn't have been an issue but her venue manager quit mid-planning and, unfortunately, her constant emails, calls, and texts about changes came at a stressful time (2 days before the wedding).

    - Carolyn made comments about not sticking to our timelines to a WEDDING GUEST who later informed me. Unbeknownst to her, my MOH got a flat tire and my hairstylist had a family emergency. We had to make magic happen somewhere.

    - I was also informed that by my makeup artist that Carolyn took pictures of the bridal suite during the ceremony. It seems as if she wanted to preemptively collect "evidence" of some sort.

    - While the bridal party was packing up to leave, Carolyn basically told my mother to leave while she was holding my sleeping children.

    - My catering company left early due to Carolyn trying to make them clean the bathroom which is not their responsibility.

    - I'm missing my bridal robe and I'm sure it's at the venue.

    Outside of the lack of decorum from the owner/manager there were few issues.

    - The Casasita, where the men got dressed, has no air. My husband and the Groomsmen took turns coming in the main house to cool down.

    - For almost $10k for 1 day, the venue didn't include much. Just tables, chairs, and a security guard. If I can redo my wedding, I would search for an all-inclusive venue.

    Although the day did turn out beautiful overall, these things are very concerning to me and I would hate for another bride to deal with the same issues. Rent at your own risk.
