Best decision!

Rebecca is amazing. She is very responsive and always gets back to us within a day, sometimes even in minutes. She gave us lots of suggestions and was really accommodating to our quirks. She handled everything so perfectly, even the little things we didn't think of. We were able to pull off our wedding in 5 months thanks to her and her team. I was surprised this venue is not more popular. It is gorgeous and they have options for ceremony & reception, indoor & outdoor. We picked the Chandelier Room and love the art deco style. It includes balcony area for cocktail hour as well as the Americana Foyer next to the banquet hall. We didn't need much decoration because it is already beautiful. We were also able to go around the complex and take pictures of the lush greenery, the fountain, etc. We really like the food, especially the beef sliders, spanakopita, and passion fruit panna cotta (creme brulee is amazing too but we decided to go with the panna cotta because it's so pretty and unique). If anyone is debating between venues, all we can say is this was the best decision we made!

The best day of our lives

We had THE best day of our lives here. We are so glad we chose SAP for our wedding. We chose the chandelier ball room which took our breath away when Rebecca Young showed it to us. We had such ease in working with SAP. The food, the staff, the venue, everything was absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend them enough for your wedding, too.
