Wonderful event team!
Sandhya and her team were amazing! On July 1 2021, we held a pre-wedding 30-person family dinner here at the Conservatory and had Indian catering delivered, along with a henna artist for our family guests. Sandhya was incredibly helpful during the planning process - made sure all of our details were taken care of while also being very accommodating for our needs. On the day-of, she and her entire team were so attentive and thoughtful - I felt like royalty as the to-be bride! Thank you for helping us create such lovely memories!Sent on 07/13/2021

Sandhya and her team were such a pleasure to work with for our wedding rehearsal. She was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire process.
She even printed and made us a beautiful frame with newport sand as a wedding gift. Way above and beyond all that was expected! Highly recommend using them for your next event!!Sent on 06/15/2021

Sandhya saved the day !!!
Planning our bridal luncheon was difficult due to multiple change of staff over the year 2020-2021 since we booked the Vanderbilt for event .
However once Sandhya was hired a month before our event, the experience was wonderful . She made the difference as she seemed to care a lot in making it go well for us.
All was perfect . Staff was commendable and the food was excellent.Sent on 06/15/2021
