  • My daughter (ER Nurse) and Fiance (Firefighter) were scheduled to have a September 2020 wedding. They required a sizeable deposit which they now refuse to return - they had to cancel the wedding and now wont return the deposit. Very sad that these two front-line workers who are working 12-16 hours a day fighting to keep people alive from this deadly COVID virus are having their money stolen by this organization. Buyer beware ---All smiles until there is a problem.

    Hello Peter- thank you for providing your feedback. Our team always aims for the highest level of service for all of our clients so we are very sorry to hear this. We sincerely apologize for some of the delays you have experienced throughout this process. As you can imagine, we have had numerous requests for rescheduled/cancelled weddings and we are dealing with each one individually and in order of event date. We have not, however, cancelled your wedding. We were ready to host your daughter’s wedding on the original September 2020 date with a lower guest count, and we are still holding their rescheduled date of July 2021 in hopes that we still can. We appreciate everything your daughter and fiance are doing on the front lines, and we are very sorry to hear this experience has been difficult for them. We would love to continue to see how we can host their July 2021 wedding as planned.
