Mike and Leslie really know what they're doing. No lie, I think my wedding was the most beautiful I have seen. I was more than once surprised to remember it was mine. I felt like I really didn't have to do anything except pick out vendors and choose what to serve. Leslie did everything else. On the day of, I really didn't have to lift a finger. I still did, because I wanted to, but Leslie kept urging me to go sit in the bridal room. Otherwise, she took care of everything. She decorated anything that she thought needed it, but she would always come to me and get permission that I was okay with it.Sent on 06/24/2016
A few months before, my husband and I met with Leslie to get an idea of what we wanted. She pointed us to her preferred vendors and that helped more than I would have ever thought. And I know that working with a preferred vendor list can be a little constricting, but the people and companies she had on there were great and I am so grateful for them. Also, I have seen an few people complain about the rules. Yeah, there are a lot, but in all honesty, I never even felt like I was going to breach any. The only one that I was concerned about were the songs on the Playlist being a little risky, but it was a non-issue. Otherwise, the rules were there for a reason. Mike and Leslie have been around a while, so they know what works and what does not.
Trust me, the rules can be a lot and the preferred vendors can be a lot. But Leslie will move mountains to make sure your day is perfect. And throughout the reception, you could see her, Mike, and their son John working their tail ends off to make sure it was perfect. And my wedding was absolutely perfect!!!! If I had to do it over with more money, or even less money, I would always choose St. John's because you're not just paying for the venue, you're paying for a team to make your wedding a great experience.
I loved this wedding and I know all of my guests did too. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

To say that this venue is gorgeous doesn't even do it justice. It was beautiful beyond measure and constantly well taken care of. Nothing seems to ever be out of place, almost like it's got a magic all it's own. My husband Joe and I got married back in October 2015 and couldn't imagine a wedding any other place. The chapel is probably the most beautiful one I have ever been in for something that only seat a little over 100 guests. The grounds are fabulous and the terrace is absolutely perfect for almost any type of wedding you could imagine. From the moment we picked our dates, Leslie and Mike treated us like friends and even like family. Any time I had a question they would be right on it answering anything I needed. Full of suggestions and pushes in the right direction. Both Leslie, Mike and John worked so hard the day of our wedding and even the days leading up to it. I've never seen people work so hard to make sure everything was awesome and it was just that. To this day people still tell me how unforgettable our wedding was and that it was something they will never forget. I can't say enough about this venue and the people who run it.Sent on 07/20/2016
