    Dream come true wedding!

    My husband and I got married at View October 6, 2018. Down to every last detail, the day went perfectly! All of the staff were phenomenal and everything was presented exactly how it was told it was going to be! We did the extended cocktail hour with the sushi bar add on which I HIGHLY recommend! I had a lot of people from all over the country come to my wedding and so many of them told me it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to! I 200% recommend View if you want an absolutle dream wedding with well...a wonderful view!!!!

    It's easy to tell just by looking that The View is a beautiful space, but our guests were awe struck by how perfect it looked on our wedding day. Beyond the obvious beauty of the room and the location, the food is impeccable. My husband (a professional chef) and I (an experienced and enthusiastic eater) found the execution of every dish to be flawless--not an adjective we use lightly. The scallops were seared to perfection, as was the filet mignon and all of the other delicious foods on the buffet spread. We were also impressed by the artful presentation, and our guests loved the "bonus food" that came as part of our extended cocktail reception, the perfect option to make sure our guests got a taste of every delicious morsel.

    However, the best part of the day was the incredible staff: from the professional, polished and friendly servers who made sure our guests never lacked for anything, and even decorated and packed up all of our favors so lovingly and carefully for us, to Courtney, who is so incredibly efficient and meticulous and unflappable that we instantly put our trust in her getting every detail right on point, to Jimmy, who made every part of the experience fun and easy--from when we found the venue to when we sat to down write the menu to when he treated us to brunch to next day, to Laurie who went above and beyond in recovering a friend's lost coat and making sure a really nice bottle of scotch we accidentally left behind got returned to us.

    We could not ask for better service and we are so grateful that every single detail in our special day went off without a hitch.
