Just getting settled and haven't had time to write this as soon as I would have liked. I just wanted to pass along all the compliments that we received regarding the wedding. All of us agreed, that it turned out exactly as we had imagined. Your staff was wonderful and accomodating from the beginning to end. The wedding weekend where the bride and groom attends and speaks to the vendor, was a wonderful idea. It helped make a lot of decisions and put all of our minds at ease.
The entire week began with our guests arriving into their perspective homes...and the party began. It was such a special time for all of us to be able to be together on the same vacation/event. We have a close and large family and friends, and we relish every moment, together. The week's weather was ever changing, but proved to be absolutely beautiful on the wedding day. And even though the bride had a "Meet the Parents" moment and smashed the volleyball into her forehead, leaving a bump, lol, during a competitive game, the ice and makeup helped us recover from that moment. The beach ceremony was perfect and we received many compliments on the ceremony and the "cool" reverend. It was simple, but perfect!! On to the reception...when I walked into the hall I was awed and almost cried! It was simple but elegant. We could not believe how nice the centerpieces, cake, memorial table and candy station turned out. The selection of beer and wines, were perfect. The DJ played what the Bride/Groom and bridal party wanted. Now for the best part, the food was awesome! I've been to a lot of weddings and actually catered for years. This may have been some of the best food I have ever had, which was echoed by all the guests. It was hot and tasted wonderful. I am very particular on the temperature of my food, when served, but this was served at the perfect temperature. I was skeptical on the food because it is usually with good presentation, but turns out to be bland, cold or both. The tenderloins were so tender I even went up for more. The appetizers were also awesome.
We had a budget and stayed within our budget. Yeah we could have gone over budget and had an extravagent wedding, but I actually think this was the way to go, small, simple but elegant. Adriannas has a perfect location, with it's view, just added to the ambiance. As you can tell, couldn't be more pleased with this event. The entire week, ending with the perfect wedding have created such special memories for the rest of our lives, and we thank you for that! And for the record, the groom had a smile on his face the entire day, none like I have ever seen before. I wanted to blog on the knot but could not find out how to do that.
One last note, just an fyi. After booking with you, we met up with a photographer in Duck, requesting her assistance. She turned us down, saying she doesn't work with your company. Would not say anymore, I guess probably trying to be ethical. However, I must say she scared us and did not recommend going with the first one we visited. That worried all of us involved in the decision, for quite some time. Don't know what her beef was, but you could not have proven her more wrong. Needless, to say we worried for nothing!! Probably just talked to some spoiled Bridezillas, that nothing makes them happy...she didn't know we weren't like that.
Special thanks to Linda Bradley, great salesperson, convincing us this was the place to have our wedding and answering sooo many questions, that first day. I am craving that crab dip I sampled! Delicious!
Thank you so much,
