Wedding was great! 170 guests and most from out of town. Majority of our guests and party stayed at the Desmond hotel which made it awesome for partying all weekend long! Need an event planner, contact: Kelsey Gilland at A Little Soiree. She does fabulous work for any budget.
Staff was a bit tricky to deal with but we asked a priest that was a family friend to marry us, so that made the process better. High fees for use of church, cantor, and pianist. We brought in an outside string quartet who ended up "ratting" on us to the church for some of our music selections. Church itself is great, just be weary of the staff and some of their "unwritten" rules. Inquire about the fees, some can be misleading.
Great! Staff was super accommodating and 5 class white glove service. Scenery and grounds keeping is excellent. Claim they can seat up to 250 for seated dinner and DJ, I wouldn't go over 210 if you like there to be space on a dance floor.
All in all this is great hotel to have the majority of your party stay. They can be tough when trying to negotiate comps for room blocks when you're wedding is off site. Keep pressing though and all should work out.
