STEVEN AND SASHA'S WEDDING

August, 2011 in Berkeley

"Wedding mapper was a great resource to add to our wedding website to give our guests an idea of where the venue was relative to other local hotels, make restaurant recommendations, and suggest other attractions for guests to visit while they were in town. The ability to add your own mini-review for each location and a direct link to their website was especially helpful."

"Crystal, the event coordinator, was wonderful and made the planning very easy. The venue did all the set up, cleanup, and food so all I had to do was be there. It's a Bed and Breakfast as well so we were able to block rooms for our guests so they didn't have to figure out how to get to the venue. Gorgeous historical building. Your pictures will look amazing!"
