    We had our wedding at The Read House. Our fabulous wedding coordinator helped us find this lovely venue. I truly fell in love with the Silver Ballroom and knew immediately that I wanted to have our wedding there. Working with Sarah was great. She was great at responding to my many questions. The wedding went well and our guests really enjoyed the venue. There were a couple of things that I had qualms with though. My husband and I were suppose to spend the night at The Read House after the wedding. The day of the wedding, we had no idea what room were suppose to stay in and it appeared neither did the front desk staff. They eventually gave up an upgrade to the presidential suite which we truly were excited about so things worked out in that area. Another issue I had was with the food. We are Caribbean and were requesting a traditional Caribbean dish. Sarah was kind enough to get us a second food tasting. The chef gave us samples of two dishes which turned out really well. He was really good and explained to us that he was versed in many ethnic dishes. We settled on a coconut curry chicken, mango chunk spread, rice, beans and fried plantains. The day of the wedding, the chef apparently couldn't be there so he left instructions with the suis chef. I am not sure if the suis chef got the instructions or just ignored it, but the meal that was served was low grade. The chicken was dry and did not appear marinated. The rice was dry as well. The mango chunks that were suppose to be on the chicken was pureed to this weird substance. I only ate two bites of my meal. After spending all that money on the food and not getting what was agreed upon was very disappointing. I still believe that The Read House is a wonderful place to have your wedding. My only advice is that you make sure that the main chef will be the one overseeing the food the day of the wedding or you'll have the same experience that I did and will be disappointed with what they serve.
