    Amazing Venue and Team!

    We had such an amazing experience at Thompson Island from the time we looked at the venue to our wedding day, this past July. Mary Kate was such an amazing wedding coordinator. She was wonderful to work with and very helpful with her wealth of wedding knowledge! Even on the hottest day of the year, the whole team at Thompson Island went above and beyond to make sure us, our families and guests were having a great time. We couldn't be happier that we chose to have our reception at Thompson Island.

    Magical Perfection

    I became a bit nervous when a few months into the planning process there was a switch in the person who I was connected with. But, oh my goodness Mary Kate was a blessing in disguise. I felt at ease and happy the entire time- she might as well have been another guest at the wedding. She knew exactly how to handle every situation from rain to rowdy groomsmen and beyond. We truly had the best night of our lives and our guests continue to gush over the venue and food to this day. If I had to do it all over again I would go with Mary Kate and Thompson Island in a heartbeat.
