The Best Wedding Ever - Cannot Be Topped in Everyway!
Does it sound crazy to say that I had no stress on my wedding day? Well, sandcastle provided just that!! From our first walk through of the venue, which literally blew us away and offered every aspect of our dream wedding that we could want, to our final wave from the Rolls Royce (also provided by sandcastle!), our wedding was a 100/100!!!Sent on 09/09/2019
The venue is stunning for a daytime wedding, with elaborate tropical gardens, outdoor floors are swept super clean, and the staff is constantly at your beck and call from prewedding photos to your final exit. Elaborate fountains are turned on and they even roll out the white carpet for you. Even if it rains, theres a covered outdoor (with glass ceilings) and beautiful furniture and settings inside for photos. your day cannot even be ruined by weather at all - aka NO STRESS!!
The food is AMAZING! and it never ends. your guests have never experienced something like this in their life, and no other wedding will compare after attending yours! Its presented beautifully and bountifully, in 5 star fashion. 1.5 hour cocktail hour, a bar that drops from the ceiling!, 12 cart viennese dessert, choice of 7 different entrees cooked to order, bottles of wine at every table with personal waiters for every table, FULL BARS (you want a fresh pina colada with a side of hypnotic, parrot bay, malibu, grey goose, ANYTHING - ALL TOP SHELF - ALL READY FOR YOUR GUESTS!), AND MORE..cant even list it all.
our dj was genesis, recommended by sandcastle, also great!!! our florist, maria lo events, also recommended by sandcastle, was a 10/10 too!
the bridal suites are amazing and they wait on you in there as well with champagne and every food imaginable! so romantic!
staff actually smiles genuinly and you dont feel as if theyre forced to be "at work." compared to other hotel weddings i have attended, its refreshing to feel that you literally can ask them anything and they will do it with a smile.
they even put the train on my wedding dress up in a snap, and the personal bridal attendants you have is so luxurious!
they also wont even touch your money box, but make you pour it into a bag yourself - 100% trustworthy in every aspect!
everything i asked for was above and beyond! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! now.. can someone else get married at sandcastle so i can go as a guest :) :) ???!!!!
