We live in Mesa, so it was great to have all of our locations within about 20 minutes of each other (wedding/reception, rehearsal dinner & guest hotels). We received several compliments on the map (weddingmapper) that "must have took forever" to put together. Well, it didn't, but the results were great.
The reception began as the sun was setting. The blazing orange sky could be seen via the wall-to-wall windows, and it looked amazing. We recevied the most compliments on the view! The food was amazing (filet and salmon were served) and the service was perfect. The staff at RMRCC is very professional and made for a very smooth evening.
Many family members stayed here and found the location to be extremely convenient to the wedding/reception location and our homes.
Many of our out of town guests stayed here and enjoyed themselves. I love Holiday Inn Express myself. This location has 'happy hour' M-Th, and breakfast daily. Sugar Daddy's is right across the street, so our guests enjoyed that!
Before we had our rehearsal dinner there, Tutti Santi was one of our favorite Italian Restaurants. At our rehearsal dinner, many of Chris' relatives from 'back East' (Italians from New York & New Jersey) were in attendance and RAVED about the food here. The calmari, ravioli and halibut were absolutely incredible (as was everything else, but those were the highlights) and garnered much praise from the family. The restaurant's party room itself is beautiful, and didn't require any additional decoration from us. The staff there was warm, friendly and attentive. Several out-of-town guests have promised to come visit and specified that a visit to Tutti Santi will be in order upon their next visit. One friend has already visited, and we had a lovely meal there just last week. The price per person was affordable, especially considering the quality.
