Our wedding was wonderful! Mahan's did a fantastic job overall and the views were spectacular! The town didn't have a lot to offer guests, but with the hotel nearby we were able to get right into the after party and had brunch the next day to send off our guests. The hotel wasn't far from the highway, so it was easy for everyone to get there.
Fallon was wonderful. They got me my proofs very quickly and the turnaround time was great for prints, too. The online tool is fairly simple and they were great at responding to questions. I also ordered my invitations with them and Chris was really helpful throughout the whole process.
The limo driver did not follow our instructions and took the wrong group to the wedding, leaving our parents and the ring bearer to find their own ride to the chapel!
I can't say enough about this dress shop. It came highly recommended and they surpassed my expectations. They had a variety of dresses in many price ranges and more than one big dressing room for brides (unlike other places that were very cramped). I bought my dress and had my alterations done there. My bridesmaids were also happy with their purchases.
The Chapel at Mahan's is spectacular with a gorgeous window behind the altar that made for beautiful photos. Make sure you are VERY specific with the team at Mahan's, though, because I was told that they'd set everything up for me, and no one ever even started to put my flowers at the altar (there were only 2 arrangements!).
The food was FANTASTIC and the portions were huge. I still hear from our guests how great they were. The maitre'd was not quite on his game (didn't get our plated desserts out and didn't make sure someone handed out our favors) but the food was great. The bathrooms were also small, so you might want to consider how that will look to your guests. The DJ and cake were included in my package, and they were both excellent as well. The sound system is built right in, so no one has to sit next to a speaker stand. There were also LCD TV screens that played photos from throughout the day as well as a slideshow of our childhood pictures, which guests raved about.
The staff was professional but they had a lot of turnover in the sales department, which made it a little difficult to ensure everything was ready with my reservations. In the end, the manager I worked with was extremely helpful and everything went smoothly. The hotel is very pretty and extremely reasonable for everything it has to offer. We held our rehearsal dinner in one of the ballrooms and also had brunch the morning after the wedding and were very pleased with the food.
