If you want to have a no stress day this is the place to go. I don't consider myself high maintenance (but who does!) but all out family was shocked by how calm I was on our wedding day and it really was a testament to how well planned and attentive the staff at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake was and how well we were set up for success for our day!Sent on 04/23/2019
Everything was perfect! We had a crowd of people who really know good food and everyone there was raving about the food from the presentation to flavors! We did the blazing donuts and milk and cookies and they were both a tremendous hit. We were so worried when it was raining on and off that day but our day of Coordinator Cate made the day seem less and flawless. It could not have been a more perfect day! Thank you all so much for all your hard work and dedication to making our day the best day ever! From day one everyone involved in the planning and coordinating process stayed in contact with us and made it easy and stress free! Our friends and family go to a lot of weddings and people were raving about every aspect of the day.we worried about nothing! All the details were covered and double checked- nothing felt left to chance! We never would have had such a great experience without the guidance and help from all the planners and coordinators throughout the process! We are forever thankful for a perfect day!
