Best Wedding EVER!
From our first meeting with Mel to see what the Venue looked like and what it had to offer we were sold. The venue was beautiful and Mel made us feel so comfortable. She was knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us a confidence that if we chose your venue we wouldn’t be disappointed. So with excitement we set the date and booked it.
Next was getting our guests to book their rooms early. This is where Alycia comes in. Her and I were in constant contact with each other. She would keep me updated on who booked and I would keep her updated on the amount of rooms we would need. She was so awesome that we became friends. She went beyond the call of dutie making me a Mother Of The Bride Bag and my Daughter a Bride Wine Glass. She was amazing!! We weren’t just clients, she cared about us.
Then the final meeting with Mel and Kim. I thought we were organized, but I was mistaken. Kim had everything covered from delivery to execution. She walked us through every pre step dotting every I and crossing every T. And that was nothing compared to the actual day of the wedding. We NEVER had to ask a question or requesting anything. Everything was taken care of exactly how we envisioned it to be. Or hoped it would be!!
I can’t leave out Jill. When our guests checked in, everyone kept telling me what a great job Jill did. How friendly and organized she was!! What a pleasant experience they all had.
My daughters wedding was Magical!! It was everything she could have asked for!! And that magic was due to the knowledge and commitment of your staff. We can not thank them enough. They gave my daughter the wedding she dreamed of.
We said YES!
5 Star Experience!
