    Magical experience!

    The great staff here made my night magical!! Truly a jaw dropping experience! I couldn’t imagine a better reception or ceremony! The food was delicious! The ambiance and staff were truly amazing! Courtney went above and beyond to make sure everything I wanted was planned out and Mrs Gwen and Derrick were phenomenal! The experience in itself, cruising for the reception occupied guests. And they loved it! Anyone thinking of having their ceremony or reception here look no further!

    Wonderful team!

    Can’t say enough about the Solaris team and how wonderful they were. Our wedding planner Courtney made everything seem so easy and stress free. She was so great to work with and brought all my ideas to life effortlessly and made the planning process fun. The flowers and reception space were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. Our day of coordinator Jeremy was equally as great, accommodating and easy going. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how great the food was! In house DJ was also a hit and knew exactly what to play. Can’t thank them enough!
