Beautiful and close
I feel in love with this venue right away! It was just so beautiful! It’s so perfect, it’s a little “hidden” but it was so close to where my ceremony was taking place I just could not resist. The attention to detail is wonderful. Everyone that works there is amazing, this was truly the best decision I made! They work with you every single stepSent on 10/28/2019

Our perfect day
I cannot say enough good things about The Villa. This all-inclusive venue works with the catering company Catering by Uptown and provides a phenomenal staff and service. We chose the Villa because we wanted to have our ceremony and venue in the same building. Our ceremony was in the tent, while our reception was in the banquet hall. The food was EXCEPTIONAL. There were so many options to choose from. All of our guests enjoyed the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres and the dinner entrees. The cake was AMAZING! I always hear people say that wedding cakes are just pretty, but not as fun to eat. Well our cake was PHENOMENAL. It was moist, the icing was delicious (not too sweet), and fluffy. I am still eating it a week later and it is just as fresh as on our wedding night. I have to say that every dollar I spent was well worth it. We were able to customize EVERY aspect of our day. Our planning team was phenomenal. Haley answered many e-mail and was always there to guide me in a positive direction. Our day of coordinator, Veronica, was PHENOMENAL. I can honestly say our day was literally PERFECT. No hiccups, no difficulties, no problems, what so ever. A week after our wedding, my husband and I want to do it all again. I absolutely loved our experience with The Villa. I HIGHLY recommend.Sent on 10/18/2019

Agh. Where do I start. I came across Planning by Uptown and originally had my heart set on a different location. While I toured it, we definitely liked it, we were recommended to view one of their other locations. The planner, Jill, on a last minute whim, was able to get us in to view the other one the very next day. And we were SOLD. Location was amazing for us and family and the all inclusiveness was the cherry on top. We were immediately assigned our planner and she was amazing and so sweet. (We had Lauren E.). Everything was straight forward and she made it super easy. Food is AMAZINGGGG & the cake !!! The entire venue takes such good care of you & the day of truly exceeded and solidified that we indeed made the best choice of venue. The littlest things made me beyond happy. We had mason jars with lights that we used for the ceremony. However, we didnt instruct Lauren on what to do with them for ceremony. Come reception and after our entrance, i saw she used them to decorate our sweetheart table and I was IN LOVE! Lauren, thank you for making it an amazing experience!Sent on 10/18/2019
