When looking for wedding venues, the Margate came across my radar, and I was originally hesitant, because so many places were advertising that mine would be the only wedding that day, and the Margate did not. At the last minute, I scheduled a visit. My sister and I visited in March – it was wintry and miserable, but I fell in love with the Lakeside Pavilion ceremony site, and I knew that the sunset over the bay from the windows in the Mariah Room would be stunning. I took the assurance that, “We can do up to three weddings a day, but we’ve got it down to a science. You’ll never know.” with a grain of salt – they were selling me, after all. I got back to my sister’s place and talked with my mother who reminded me that a good friend had gone to a wedding there. I reached out to hear, and unbidden, she responded: “It was beautiful They also have it down to a science, but with class – I think there were three weddings and I didn’t know!” That sealed the deal, and we are ecstatic that we chose the Margate.
Working with the Staff at the Margate was a dream. Every time we reached out with questions, we got the answers we needed. Every staff member we communicated with was professional and courteous. There was a laidback energy that made me feel confident and comfortable in my planning. We never felt that we were being harangued, but at the same time we knew that everything that needed to get done would.
The day of the rehearsal and the day of the wedding were so easy for us. Everything went off without a hitch, and when I forgot to bring the table name signs, it was never even a problem. Once they knew that they needed to be made, I didn’t have to think of it again.
Our guests could not stop raving about the entire day – the beautiful ceremony looking out over the water, the wonderful venue. People often talk about how stressful wedding planning can be. With my experience at the Margate, that was never my experience.
