MAKIKO AND DAVID'S WEDDING

November, 2009 in New York

"The wedding was a blast! NY weddings can be among the most expensive in the country, but the combination of the venue, caterer, and smart choices allowed us to host 100 guests for way below the average for the city. The charm of the location, the great weather, very professional service, and excellent food made it a day to remember not just for us, but all of our guests. We were very touched at how many of our friends and family expressed that this was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. Too bad (or thankfully!) we can't do it again!"

"Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue. The fact that the entire day could take place there and they had an exclusive arrangement with the caterer was a big bonus. Unfortunately they gave us a last minute scare with an art installation in our rooms! For that, and the fact that they are not renewing their contract with Showstoppers (and apparently no longer having weddings there) they lose two stars. Otherwise we loved it."
