The place and staff were wonderful. Don was not. He didn't listen to us, threw out the boxes we used to transport the heavy glass centerpieces, that ended up with someone cutting themselves and having to get stitches. He attempted to set up the room incorrectly, by having the buffet in the grand room, which was not agreed upon. The place was great, but DO NOT USE DON!!

Despite feeling a little frustrated w/ Don at times, EVERYTHING (and I really mean everything) was PERFECT! It was beyond beautiful & the staff was amazing! And all the guests loved it too! Can't beat the view being right on the bay!

The compliments are still coming. We could not have made a better choice. The breathtaking views from the ballroom and the accommodating event staff made our day unforgettable!

First the staff was wonderful. The attendants were so thoughtful to the bride and groom and the place was beautiful. I highly suggest, be careful using DON. When I arrived the room was not set up in the fashion we illustrated to him. When we had to pack up our decorations, he had thrown all of our boxes away, stating he thought we were going to take them (meaning the guests)this consisted of a 50 pound cyclinder vase filled with water. We had no way to transport them back in the van we supplied and had to use one of our groomsman's car to transport back. Upon loading one of the vases broke and the person ended up going to the hospital getting 9 stitches. I TOTALLY blame Don for this. We felt rushed from the moment we arrived to delivery our decorations and felt HE truly never heard anything we said. DO not use him as your wedding coordinator! As side from that, the place is beautiful, the staff was wonderful, from the wait, to the bartenders. A wonderful place to hold your wedding.
