After our wedding, I told my husband that there were only 2 things that stopped our wedding from being absolutely perfect. The first thing was that it was 96 degrees on September 25th (what can you do about that?) and we didn't have enough cake/didn't get the cake we ordered. That was it! Everything else was amazing. I will cherish the memories of that day forever. Advice to future brides - Pay for a wedding coordinator for the rehersal and the day of. Also, get everything you talk about with vendors in writing, EVERYTHING!
The photobooth was a hit. I didn't catch the attendant's name but he was so fun. Best Prices around raleigh for a photobooth. Awesome!
We would give her 10 stars if we could. The best around. She is worth her weight in gold. Hands down the best wedding coordinator in Raleigh.
Perfect venue, sometimes communication was just ok at best. But it all worked out in the end
The rehersal dinner was supposed to be outside, but it was scorchin' hot. So it turned into an inside lots of different tables... pizza buffet. Thankful we didn't sit outside but was a little disappointed that we were scattered throughout 1 area of the restauarant.
We didn't get what we ordered, because of delivery mishap. There were fingerprints all over the cake and the bottom layer looked like a whole hand crushed the side of it. Ordered 100 servings, but according to thier website, the cake we recieved was only 70 servings. Who knows how many servings we actually had, due to the middle layer being destroyed during delivery. Worked out a partial refund after the wedding. Was disappointed that I didn't get the cake that I ordered and even though that can never be replaced, they did refund a portion of the cost.
ADVICE: I paid my deposit via Bank of America bill pay. Which in the end is basically like having the bank send a money order. The cake sisters sent me my deposit check back with "VOID" written on it. Even when i explained to the bank what had happened, I still didn't get my deposit back. That money is just lost in Bank of America land. I would suggest not making any deposits via Online Bill Pay.
Was the perfect setting. Both sides of the family are from out of town, the hotel is beautiful, the food was fantastic and the price was great.
