Lovely Indoor/Outdoor Venue
My fiance and I toured the space and received our quote from Shelley within 24 hours! We have been continually impressed with her excellent communication. My fiance and I both loved that the ceremony space is waterside but also more private than most outdoor spaces we saw. We also love that the ballroom doors open up so that guests can wander in and out, but not have be outside the whole night and deal with temperature changes. We have a lot of out-of-town guests, so we are happy that they don't have a rent a car for the weekend. Also, the food and drinks we tried at the tour were great, can't wait for our official tasting. Will update with a full review once our wedding has happened, we are really looking forward to having it at the Portofino!Sent on 03/28/2019
