    We could not have asked for a more perfect venue to host our wedding reception. We worked a lot with Leah and Jessica, who both were incredibly responsive and helpful (patient too!) for the months leading up to the big day. Jessica was there even on the day itself, with us every step of the way to make sure things were going the way we hoped, and they absolutely did. The food was excellent, the service was amazing, and they worked seamlessly with the vendors we had chosen because they had all worked together before - it was a well oiled machine. We felt very fortunate to have chosen Sanctuary for our celebration, and we couldn’t have been happier.

    My husband and I got married at the Sanctuary a few days ago and could not have been more thrilled with this venue. The second i drove up, i knew that this is where we would be married. Not only were the grounds and views spectacular, but the people working there are incredible. From the friendly valet team, to the wedding set-up crew to the chef's team and servers, everything was top notch. Jessica, who i worked with on the coordination side, deserves special praise- she is a true professional. She is friendly and was on top of everything! She answered my questions do quickly and was a pleasure to work with. One of the main reason's why i chose the Sanctuary was for the food. I am a firm believer of "you get what you pay for" and this was no exception. The beef was phemonenal- and so many guests said it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. I can't wait to celebrate future anniversaries at this resort.
