    Sunnybrook pandemic wedding(s)

    TL;DR Had two weddings (thx Covid), Larami helped us not go insane, both weddings were beyond beautiful, ate herb parmesan crusted chicken and you should too.

    Given the circumstances of 2020, we planned many different wedding versions with Sunnybrook. In the end, we wouldn’t have had it any other way. They were SO accommodating when we made a late decision to completely change plans to hold a small but safe wedding ceremony in 2020, then have a larger party/reception in 2021. After hearing so many horror stories from other brides postponing/canceling pandemic weddings, we knew we lucked out with Sunnybrook. We decided we wanted a more intimate venue for our small pandemic ceremony, and of course Sunnybrook already had connections at the new venue, making the change seamless. Larami and team produced a GORGEOUS wedding in such a short amount of time and within our budget. And the FOOD. Apparently, people complain about wedding food? No- not with Sunnybrook you don’t. It's all delicious, but you especially need the herb/parmesan crusted chicken in your life. Throughout the night, Larami made sure we were moving through the scheduled activities and that we had whatever we needed (snacks, wine refills, a blanket probably?). Though it was not what was originally planned, we (and our guests) look back in awe on this day and cannot believe how wonderful it turned out. It really was a dream. We are so grateful to Sunnybrook for these memories.

    Over the next year we planned the Wedding Part II- since we were already married, we introduced some non-traditional bits, and Sunnybrook was more than accommodating to make it happen (not into unity candles? Go for a unity sandwich!). We live out-of-state, but Larami was very clear in email messages, and it was easy to communicate any changes or questions. She never made us feel like a bother even when asking so many questions. When we met all together with both sets of parents, Larami was exceptional at balancing everyone’s opinions and making everyone feel heard (it is difficult enough to please just the bride and groom!). Just like our first small ceremony, Wedding Part II was also more beautiful than we imagined- the staff at Sunnybrook are experts at taking your vision (and your special items you want included in your day) and putting it together to make it feel like a celebration. Just as the first small ceremony, the food was outstanding and Larami guided us through the day to ensure we stayed on schedule.

    The Sunnybrook venue has multiple ceremony space options (hello, automatic rain backup plan!) and stunning photo opportunities inside and out. It has beautiful accommodations for the wedding party during the day- the bridal suite is elegant, spacious, has a kitchenette, has bluetooth speakers in the ceiling for a pre-wedding girls-only dance party, and has perfect lighting for hair and makeup (and those getting ready photos!). The men have their own carriage house with kitchenette to hang out as well (let’s be real, you know the bride is writing this, but I’m fairly certain they didn’t care about much else in their space except the amount of beer their kitchenette fridge could hold- I didn’t hear any complaints)

    After having two weddings planned over two years with Sunnybrook, we likely learned more about their event planning process and customer service than the average client does. If there were grievances to be had, we likely would have come across them. With that said, help them help you- hold up your end of the deal, communicate, and stick to the plan so that you too can get a taste of that thrilling parmesan crusted chicken.

    P.S. Tip your vendors.
