My in-laws live in St. James and we were excited to choose the Chapel in St. James and The Founder's Club for our wedding and reception venues. Our rehearsal dinner was also in St. James at The Reserve Club. I began working with Brandee about 10 months prior to our July 2nd wedding and from the first contact knew that she would be providing a wealth of information. She is extremely professional but very personable as well! Brandee walked me through every single detail from start to finish and helped with the details that I hadn't even thought of! I was able to communicate all my wants and needs to Brandee and feel comfortable that she would deliver on my vision. She even took the time on busy weekends to meet with me several times during the process to walk through details with me as well as answer questions.Sent on 07/22/2016
We had a very small and intimate wedding and even though our numbers were small, Brandee and her staff never made us feel like we were small. We were made to feel like our party was the most important! Brandee had the same staff that served us for the rehearsal dinner, at out reception as well. I couldn't have been more thrilled! They were prompt, courteous, professional and even remembered our preferences at the reception from being with us the night previous! This team made my husband and I as well as our guests feel like a million bucks!
The presentation and food must also be noted for being beyond excellent. We had the Social Collection Wedding package and everything from the appetizers to the prime rib carving station were spot on and some of the tastiest I've eaten. The action stations were manned by true professionals who were eager to please!
We honestly can't speak highly enough of this venue and its staff. If you are looking to impress your guests as well as be impressed yourself, I don't feel that you could choose a better venue!

My parents own a home in St James and i started reaching out to Brandee for information about 10months BEFORE my 18mth engagement. Brandee has been the most incredible vendor i have ever worked with. We were going to have our ceremony at St James but due to some local construction, had to find another site. she was more than accommodating in our changes. The clubs actually built a brunch menu for us from scratch to include everything we wanted and asked for. The food, both at the rehearsal dinner AND the reception was EXCEPTIONAL. all our guests kept commenting that this was the BEST wedding food they had ever had. It really was!!Sent on 05/06/2016
Throughout our 2+ year communication, Brandee always responded to my multitude of questions within 48hrs - even on the weekend.
She's kind and loving and the perfect person to do her job. She's also incredibly smart and accommodating. She made our wedding what it was and we cant thank her or the Clubs enough for the fantastic job. Thanks Brandee! We'll miss you!!
