    This venue was a bit tricky. When I was looking for a venue, I wanted a venue where I didn't I have to worry about anything and this one sounded like a dream come true. The manager was so helpful, she was had experience and was on top of her game. A few months before the wedding she ended up leaving and I got a new manager. Throughout the remaining time I felt more like I was manager her, rather than her managing the process. I would send her updated emails, and she would send me an updated receipts with things missing. The day of the wedding, there was a luncheon event in the reception room from 1pm-2pm and my wedding starts at 4pm. She never told me, I found out after the fact. There was a huge rush at the end to get everything setup, and things were still getting setup while guest were arriving. According to some guest the luncheon was still going on! We still managed to start the ceremony at 4:20pm. However when we got to the reception room, the back drop was white not blue. There was suppose to be a blue overlay on the wedding table, there was not, and the buffet tables were suppose to have a blue or white skirt, and it was purple. It was also about 80 degrees in the ceremony and reception room, it was very unusual warm. Other than the cosmetics issues, the food was great, and everything in the reception room went smoothly. After the reception the groom and I had a room for the night. We were told the room would be cleaned, there would be champagne and they would box some food for us since they understand we are too busy to eat. None of that happened. The very next day we left for our honeymoon, and when we got back, I was surprised with a credit charge from the venue. I immediately sent an email to the manager about what happened on the wedding day and this surprise charge. She apologized for everything, said there was no excuses, and issued a refund. No compensation was offered. I personally will not be going back to this venue.
