Above and Beyond
Where do we even begin?! From the moment we met Rebecca, we knew we were in great hands. She proved us right, all the way through the end of our wedding where she was (rightfully so), exhausted and STILL helping us physically load our car with all of our things. Rebecca made the planning process easy – I know, it sounds like we are over exaggerating but she really did. Always laid back, patient, responsive, full of ideas, opinions, options and most importantly, calm. Did I mention she was also planning her own personal wedding while doing this?! Yea, pretty much a rock star.Sent on 11/06/2018
The historic charm of the club and greens themselves are simply gorgeous but the wait staff, Rob the Golf Pro, Rebecca and Chris the General Manager is what makes the club a beautiful place. Not only did we receive positive feedback from our guests but the feedback was overwhelming. Almost every single guest made it a priority to tell us how incredible the wedding was – from the small details, the venue, the staff, the DJ, and most importantly, THE FOOD!! We had multiple people tell us it was “the best wedding they’ve ever been to” and “the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding”! The food was to die for – we are still drooling over the short ribs!
Rebecca made little extra touches that she didn’t have to. Our menu cards and food labels all matched the color and greenery theme we were going for. (her idea and added touch) If you’re wedding was fun, you don’t have much time to eat! It’s true – we are big food people and we tried to say we won’t be that couple but it’s so difficult when all you want to do is dance and have fun with your favorite loved ones! Well don’t worry, Rebecca and Debbie took care of that – we went home with labeled boxes of cocktail hour food (all of it!!!), our untouched dinners, and dessert! We were ecstatic that they did this for us. The week of the wedding it had been raining quite a bit – we wanted to get married on the greens and the Powelton made it happen. They carted everyone to and from the ceremony location – no questions asked. An hour before the ceremony, the staff mutually decided the flower pieces we had ordered to be on the ground at the ceremony would have rotted due to the moist ground. Instead of putting them down anyway or saying, oh well, there will not be any décor out at the ceremony – the General Manager, Chris and Powelton board member and family friend Ann, got in the car and ran to a local farm/store to throw together the most beautiful isle for our ceremony. We actually have a picture of Chris diligently laying the hay down while Ann decorated with mums and pumpkins. It was unnecessary and above and beyond what we would expect from a venue. They truly took care of us every step of the way, from start to finish. The Powelton Club is owed 10000000000 stars for their outstanding service they provided to us. We wish we could replay the day over and over again, it was amazing!
