Dream Come True
September bride here, this review is long overdue but certainly well-deserved:Sent on 01/27/2019
We had the most incredible experience with Donna and her staff at the Mainland! We had our Wedding reception in the terrace room. This room is recently renovated and absolutely gorgeous. Working with Donna was a special treat, she is a ray of sunshine and made the planning process so effortless and fun. This venue is the whole package; we really loved how much it had to offer even outside of where the banquet was held—the clean hotel rooms and guest block, beer garden, fun games, fire pits, and the restaurant that is perfect for breakfast the morning after the big day. It is so easy to forget that you’re on 72—this place feels like a destination spot! The terrace room is elegant and all of our guests were blown away. The fireplace, farm tables, and fountains make the reception space feel inviting and like a perfectly executed vision from a Pinterest dream-board. My husband and I have food allergies and the staff was great about making sure that we were well taken care of. They made every detail special. Our wedding day felt like something out of a fairy tale all thanks to Donna and her wonderful team!

To Donna and the rest of the staff at MainlandSent on 09/26/2018
Christopher aka CJ just want to first off say that our wedding day was a dream and more than we could ever expect and it was all thanks to you and your staff! From the first day we entered searching for a venue having no clue what we wanted or what to expect, you and your staff were there to assist us with whatever we needed. Throughout the entire process from start to finish, we never felt like our questions were not answered and the Mainland put our minds at ease every step of the way. When we walked into the reception hall, we both were in awe the amount of work you and your staff put into making our wedding a fantasy that had finally come true. It meant a lot that the Mainland staff made sure that we had time to enjoy food and drinks from cocktail hour in our room before we were able to mingle with the guests. Throughout the night, Erin our maitre d, the waitresses, bartenders, and Donna made sure we, our families and even our guests were fed, entertained and satisfied. It was great to have so many people care that Chris and I were having the best wedding possible. We appreciate everything you did for us and I don't think we can ever thank Mainland enough. If anyone is looking for a venue, then this is the place to book! They are awesome!
