The food and service was also top notch. They are somewhat strict in only allowing their contracted caterer as an option (unless you want to pay quite a bit more for an outside vendor), but their caterer has great options and delicious food. Service also left nothing to be desired.
Last but not least, Alexis, our coordinator, was the glue that held our entire reception together. I don't know what would have happened without her! She was absolutely fantastic, and if she's helping you with your event, you can rest assured that it will go off without a hitch!
