We had our wedding on May 13, 2017 and it really was our dream wedding. The location was great. The food was delicious. The room was beautiful. The weather was perfect and we were able to have our cocktail hour on the river walk, which guests love. It has been 6 weeks and we continue to get compliments on how great the food was. Katya was wonderful to work with every step of the way. She was very responsive and helped make our dream wedding a reality!

Camille is the best thing that happened to our wedding! She was so easy to work with, she was meticulous and made the day so special. It could not have been done without her. Whoever is reading this - she needs a BIG FAT RAISE! :)
