Our Wedding

Hey All, I would not change a thing but if you are one that will stress about things please consider flying out of state and throwing a party when you get back. Also plan for a SMALL wedding and a BIG Reception. Entertainment was KEY to keeping our guests there and keeping enjoying themselves so take that into consideration when you plan your wedding if you are wanting it to be a dream. It does fast. We started ours at 4pm and finished at Midnight and I swear that those 8 hours were the fastest 8 hrs in my life. It felt like a 3 hour event. And to all you nervous brides. I was was nervous about passing out at the alter and I was worried about standing in front of all those people but I PROMISE you that once you see him....It is all about the two of you.

Russ Poole and his wife were a blast. HE is ~$2,100 for an all nite event but he is out of this world. I have heard more compliments and more amazed comments about that night! We worried about the price but we would not change it at all. People stayed till midnight to enjoy his games, music, and entertainment. We met for almost 4 hrs. and planned all kinds of special games, skits, and questionarre games. His GAME SHOW was the hit of the night. He will do it the way you want and EVEN BETTER.

Rev. Dana Mann did a FANTASTIC job. I was really worried at first when we started our marriage counseling with her but the day could not have been better. The ceremony was about us and only us and made the ceremony EXACTLY the way we wanted it. It was about our story and our love and our relationship rather than the generic ceremony.

Min. Food Expense is ~$5,000. so if you are having a BIG party than this is the place to be..They setup and clean up everything and take care of you all night long. I Especially LOVED working with TOM he was fun, helpful, and on top of it all.

Nice rooms, Nice Pool, Nice customer service, WE LOVED THE Pillow display (every fimness you can imaging), and we loved the COMFY BEDS, but do not plan to make much noise and plan on paying at least around 150 a night. They will put a quick stop to noise. Which is understandable.

Could not get them to schedule a block of rooms to save my soul. I called 3 times and they would answer and say they were away from their desk and could not sched. it right now. or they were out of the office. I have been there for other events though and the place was accomidating.....
