Markita is great! She really knows her business and can help you with any aspect of coordinating your event. She has lots of contacts throughout the city to help you save a bundle. She also has great vision and creativity, as well as attention to detail. She is very organized and available when you need her. You won't be disappointed with her services.
St. Anthony is a beautiful old catholic church. Lots of stained glass and a decorative altar, so it needs minimal decoration (budget saver). Also, they have very few restrictions on photography, etc. that many of the other Catholic churches seem to have. Only downside, church has minimal parking, but they have an agreement with the church next door to use their parking lot.
Lovely, classy venue. Beautiful view of the gardens from the reception room. Staff is great and help with just about every aspect of the planning. Downside- you must use their contracted caterer (Proof of the Pudding) for food and liquor, but Proof has excellent food, so not too big an issue for us.
Wonderful staff (ask for Tika Davis). The lobby is beautiful and impressive for those looking to make a statement. Only issue for us was that cell phone reception was spotty in some areas.
