    We had our reception at the Ramada on 04.23.16 and we really enjoyed our experience. Veronica Clark was a pleasure to work with! We were planning our wedding from Georgia so I was a little nervous, but everything turned out perfect! The food was delicious, the only complaint was the food wasn't left out longer so we could eat more! The staff was very attentive and we used their chair covers and centerpieces and we loved those as well!

    Thanks Ramada!

    Everything we wanted!!!

    My husband and I knew we wanted to do a destination wedding right away, and when we found The Island it was the perfect fit. Being from out of town, we were worried about planning and getting everything ready, but Dana and The Island staff made everything from planning to the day of run seamless. We had our ceremony on The Island Green and our reception in the Island Tavern. It was all beautiful!! We have received endless compliments about everything - especially on the food. As our wedding party said, the food was 13/10 (especially the cheesy potatoes)! I would highly recommend having your wedding at The Island!!

    The Island Wedding Company's reply:

    Thank you Emily! We want to thank you both so much for being so awesome throughout our entire time working together. We would also love it if you could please share your wedding album with us. 🙂
    We wish you and Jon the very, very, very best in your beautiful life together. 💜
