    Everything was so good! We loved working with the staff here, and Charlie was the best event manager we could have asked for! He even had some of the leftover food boxed up for us to take with us after the wedding!

    We had our reception at EVE in the BOB. It was a combination of contemporary elegance. Gilmore Collection did a wonderful job of accomodating our ever request to make our day perfect. The wait staff was personable and attentive. The food turned out fantastic and guests have raved!
