We got engaged on Christmas 2010 and decided we wanted to get married the following year. I really wanted to have it at CD & ME. There were only a few dates left. We got married August 2011. We couldn't have asked for a better day, not too hot. The ceremony was outside and gorgeous! Everything ran smoothly, we didn't have one issue! not ONE!! We had 300+ guests and I found the BEST seating chart on www.weddingmapper.com. It helped me so much trying to seat everyone. What was better I printed it and was able to give it to the wedding planner at CD & ME, which helped them out. Thanks wedding mapper!!
The staff at CD & ME is amazing!! Everyone is very helpful and will go out of their way to help/accommodate you. You get the venue, DJ, and premium bar all in one package. Ceremony is extra if you choose to have it there. You are required to use one of their vendors for the catering which they are all fantastic. They have tastings twice a year to try them out. There other vendors at the tastings but you don't necessarily have to us them. I got my own photographer, and cake lady, who were all local and reasonably priced. (attached) There isn’t much you need to do here the place is gorgeous!! We had our ceremony and reception at there. The reception was in the tent to hold the 300 guests! Check out the website, and if you like CD & ME be sure to call ASAP, they fill up very fast!
