    On September 12th, we held our wedding reception at the Renaissance Waterfront hotel. We had the fortune to work with two great coordinators at the hotel, Sarah Traub and Jennifer Fruscillo. Jennifer really went above and beyond with EVERYTHING for our wedding.

    In all honesty, we know that it is hard to walk into an event or project that is already rolling along and we were concerned that something would be overlooked. We had booked the hotel almost two years prior and as you can imagine, a lot of back and forth happened during that time period. Jennifer captured EVERYTHING and more. She has been extremely attentive to our communications and paid attention to the smallest detail. She is pleasant and professional with everything that she does. It is obvious that the role of being an events coordinator is tedious and overall hard work. It is obvious that Jennifer can steadily roll along without flinching. It is impressive.

    The food was awesome, we had the beef w/lobster ravioli, chicken w/polenta and a vegetarian dish. All the food was served HOT and fresh. There were no complaints from the guests on the food, which is saying a lot for me! The venue was beautiful, we booked the ballroom with floor to ceiling windows (I believe it is called the Aegean ballroom). The hotel rooms were great and the service was above and beyond expectations. Would recommend this hotel for any event in the future.

    This venue is amazing! Right when I saw the place, I knew it was the one. Everything was handled so perfectly! Jennifer did an amazing job with coordinating everything!
