Bands/Live Entertainment

This band is great!! They play cover tunes mostly from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. They learned some new songs for our celebration. The dance floor was packed the entire time they were on stage. They did 3 sets of about 45 min. each. The price was very reasonable for the amount of music. All 6 of the bandmates have wonderful personalities. Our guests LOVED them!! The band also participated in our Halloween theme and wore costumes. They were amazing!

Michael and Reyeh from Catered Productions were wonderful to work with. They listened to us when we talked on the phone prior to our tasting and had delicious samples for us to try. We inquired about diabetic friendly desserts and they had a sugar-free cake at the tasting. All of the food was delicious. It was flavorful, plentiful, and the presentation was gorgeous. We went with heavy hors d'oeuvres as we wanted a casual atmosphere. There was PLENTY of food. The staff that worked our wedding were perfect. They were all so nice and were very hard workers. They were definitely on top of clearing out used plates, cups, etc. We had almost 200 guests and yet the bartenders were able to quickly move through the line that formed when the bar opened. We would definitely use this caterer again. Hmmm, looks like we better find another reason to have a big party.

Gary has a fabulous personality and is a pleasure to work with. His work is really nice. We had a very non-traditional wedding in that everyone wore costumes. I wish that Gary got more full body photos of our guests. He took some, but most of the photos are face shots. This is probably common for most weddings, but it cuts off the costumes that our guests worked hard to make and/or put together. Gary definitely captured the spirit of our wedding. He took a lot of really great shots of the decorations and of course us with our guests.

It is such a beautiful building. In order to feature the natural beauty of the wood, we only used simple decorations. Stan, who manages the barn, gave us several good ideas during the planning process. He also knew when to let us just go with what we wanted. It was a pleasure working with him.

This was the only disappointment of our event. The hotel was very average. The price was not that great and the attitude of the employees was fair at best. The room was okay. It wasn't terrible, it wasn't great.
