    Maid of Honor/Wedding Planner

    My sister and her husband were married at The Bristol in September of 2020. As appointed wedding planner after a summer engagement, it was a speedy process (and amidst a pandemic, no less!). The team at The Bristol, especially Cailyn, were easy to work with and extremely helpful throughout the entire decision making process. The space itself was ideal for our group of 25, with enough room for an aisle & ceremony space, and perfect cocktail area towards the bar and fireplace in the back. The food was perfection and the wait staff were incredibly pleasant! The Bristol was up to date on the protocols (masks/spaced tables, etc), but it still felt comfortable and as normal as possible. The bride, groom, and both of their families could not have imagined a better place for their special day. Thank you!!

    The Perfect Rehearsal Dinner!

    We had our rehearsal dinner at The Bristol, and it was an incredible experience. From the moment we started planning, the team was so helpful. The food was amazing (they roasted a full pig for us!), and our friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had. It was the perfect way to kick of the best weekend of our lives.

    I only had my reception at the Bristol as the ceremony was at a church but Michelle Gnau & (Elliot - head captain/manager on the event day) team were exceptional. We had a small party of under 75, food was amazing, tech needs were everything we wanted and it's one of our favorite restaurants in a great neighborhood. My nephews ate all the food. Even the adult's roasted broccoli! Couldn't have found a better family-friendly venue than the Bristol. They have the best staff. Super easy to work with and I highly recommend them. I never give full stars but in this review, I absolutely must.
