    Perfect Wedding

    We had our wedding at Shakespeare's in October, and Chelsea (the event coordinator) went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure everything was perfect on our wedding day! I seriously can't praise Chelsea and the staff at Shakespeare's enough. My grandfather (who was our officiant), a man of few words, said it was the most beautiful wedding he had ever been to, and he's been to A LOT of weddings. Everyone had a wonderful time. The food was incredible, the views from our balcony ceremony were stunning, and the reception was the most fun I've had in a long time. People are still talking about what an amazing day it was a month later.

    Chelsea made sure everything went smoothly throughout the day, checked in with me often to make sure I was okay and that things were going well, and she spent a lot of time solving issues that weren't even hers to solve. We had quite a bit of trouble with our florist, but Chelsea took the time and effort to make sure even the florists issues didn't stress us out. She did everything she could to make sure we had an incredible time, and we certainly did.

    Leading up to the wedding, Chelsea was very quick and clear in answering any questions or concerns we had about the wedding. She took all the stress of planning a wedding away. I knew this year in particular everyone in the wedding business would be swamped with weddings that were rescheduled from last year on top of the new weddings this year. However, you wouldn't have been able to tell that Chelsea was overwhelmed with brides. She was always there to talk if I had any last minute questions. She was so incredibly nice and professional through the entire process.

    I knew the first time I heard about Shakespeare's that it's where I wanted to get married. I'm a HUGE Shakespeare nerd, and after seeing the place in person, there is no where else I could imagine having my wedding. The whole day was simply perfect, and I'll remember it for the rest of my life. Thank you so much, Chelsea!!!

    Chelsea was the most helpful and understanding person we could’ve came across. She’s genuine, fun, and will do anything to make your Dream day come true.

I have been here several times for weddings and the staff are so nice to us. Its really nice to go there and know you are well-liked. This company is always on the ball and the place is beautiful. It reminds me of an ancient castle set in medieval days.
