    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?!

    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!

    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.
