The package we selected included tables and chairs, catering, a beer and wine bar, as well as the venue. It made it SO EASY to only have one contact for everything. But here’s the best part-
THE FOOD. IS. AMAZING. I’ve worked in catering for a very long time and never expect much from
Wedding food. I had so many people tell me that this was the best meal they had at a wedding pretty much ever. Seriously better than weddings I’ve attended at big name hotels and Disney.
They made it so easy and provided me a great backdrop for my wedding, as well as wonderful service!
Best venue there is!!
The staff here is also amazing and really made our wedding perfect! I was nervous about it raining and we talked through multiple different rain backup plans (which thankfully we didn’t have to use). They went above and beyond and made us feel so special and took care of us the whole night. We wanted to step away for a moment during cocktail hour and they brought us a whole plate of the cocktail appetizers we had chosen along with a drink for each of us. For dinner, we chose the buffet option but they brought us each a prepared plate to our table. By the end of the night they even had two leftover boxes of food waiting in our hotel room fridge in case we got hungry later. The food was amazing and so is this venue! I cannot imagine having chosen a different option for our wedding as everything was perfect with the Dr. Phillips House!
Amazing staff and amazing venue!
