Denise was the best. We can't even express in words how much she helped us. She is always on top of everything, helped with all the vendors, helped us understand how everything will go. EVERYTHING was perfect. Thompson Island is a great location and Denise makes it also be the easiest. Denise helped us feel happy, calm, organized - I as a bride did not worry about a single thing and just fully trusted her. Denise also is very patient, communicative, fun, friendly .... This was the best choice we've made.Sent on 07/12/2018

Amazing team and venue!
We had a wonderful experience working with Denise and Beth and everyone we encountered. They helped us carry out our dream wedding. They were creative, flexible, responsive and so so helpful! When you consider that the proceeds from your wedding go to support an amazing nonprofit organization, how can you even go wrong?!Sent on 12/26/2018

We got married on Thompson Island in June! It was the most beautiful location. I like the outdoors feel, and my husband liked the city feel, so we got a little of both. From the boat ride to and from the island, the bonfire on the beach with the city skyline, lawn games. It was literally perfect!Sent on 12/05/2016
Our guests raved about the food! They said it was the best wedding food they ever had, and the best location for a wedding they had ever been to.
Also Denise and Beth were the best planners. I was the most last minute bride ever, and they put everything together for me perfectly :)
I HIGHLY recommend Thompson Island for your wedding venue. I wish I could go back and do it again.
The staff at theThompson Island Conference Center has all the elements to exceed guests and vendor expectations , along with a view as beautiful as a wedding day cake, Any event is sure to be a flawless five star success!
