We booked our ceremony & reception at Northerly Island (Old Meigs Field). Diane Hren at CPD was very flexible & accommodating with our needs, & even the staff that was on-hand to make sure things ran smoothly was great to deal with.Sent on 07/10/2012
The only "issues" we had with the place was that many of the overhead lights had gaping holes in the protective plastic, as did some ceiling tiles. We told Diane about these issues months out, but apparently the CPD didn't feel it was necessary to fix those issues.
Otherwise, it's a fun, kitschy little place, & Diane & her team were wonderful to work with.
