The Cottage Wedding Venue - Awesome
I REALLY wish there was a rating higher than 5 Stars!Sent on 06/15/2021
This place deserves double or triple that number!
Last week was our daughters wedding and Dina, Sal and the entire staff knocked it out of the park!
Let's start with the venue itself. It is gorgeous and a perfect setting for a wedding. It has great areas for the service itself, plenty of spots for great photos, dancing, gazebos, ballroom, brides suite and on and on. They can make it as fancy or as laid back as your want it.
The staff! We can't say enough about the entire staff and all the vendors we used for the day. Dina is amazing! She was involved since day one of the planning all the way through to the end of the reception. Even going above and beyond helping the bride with a dress issue just before the wedding. She made sure it was a spectacular day and nothing was going to let the bride and groom down.
Chef Sal is the amazing genius behind the food. Everyone raved about the food after the day was done. I have been to many wedding receptions and there has never been any better cuisine served. He even made the desserts when what the bride wanted wasn't available through the cake vendor. The cannolis and the cheese cake are out of this world!
The rest of the staff was great also from the planning of the decor to the layout of the wedding they handled everything and made everything much less stressful. Thanks to everyone here.
One special shout out to Rachel the dj. She kept everyone moving and grooving and was our acting MC that kept the night moving along. She made the night so memorable. Her business is run under DJRachelZ on Facebook.
The food.! OMG I could write a book long review on just the food! Sal certainly outdid himself in the kitchen. Chianti braised beef, chicken picatta, tortellini in pesto all amazing. The salad, vegetables and desserts were the absolute best. Almost forgot the appetizers, caprese skewers and marinated steak skewers.. There were none left they were so good!
All in all we highly recommend The Cottage Wedding Venue. You won't be disappointed. If there are any questions please feel free to ask! Thanks again Dina, Sal and everyone else!
