We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator or team!
We had the most amazing wedding reception thanks to the Vernon Downs team! Brandy was so flexible with us, and she truly made all of our visions come to life. The food was OUTSTANDING. Our guests have still been talking about it, over a month later. Thank you so much for such a wonderful day to remember.Sent on 02/07/2020
