Overall, the venue was what my now hubby and I had wanted: a beautiful country club wedding that our guests would enjoy. We got alot of compliments from people who were pleasantly surprised by the food exceeding expectations of typical wedding fair. I barely got to touch the food so I can't speak from first-hand knowledge! The ballroom is the perfect size for a wedding of 200-250 people; it strikes just the right balance between intimacy and spaciousness. And the fact that they have the balcony overlooking the golf course available for the cocktail hour was outstanding. I really wanted to have bring the outdoor in without having the wedding outdoors (the floor to ceiling windows also helped). The major detraction I have was the fact that about a week befor the wedding, the wedding planner w/the venue that we had worked left for another job, and the new planner was not familiar w/the terms of our contract. In sum, they tried to charge as more than what we had originally agreed to so needless to say, my hubby was livid, and I was ready to tear my hair out. In the end, we were able to work it out, but that's the last thing any bride (or groom) wants to worry about right before the wedding. Take home message: always get everyting in writing.
I worked with Amanda Gih, who was very warm and accommodating, making the wedding planning experience much more pleasant. After the wedding, many guests commented on the filet mignon.
