  • The pandemic has brought many challenges for those of us planning events. When COVID-19 hit, we had to scramble to identify a new location for our wedding events. Luckily, we found the Sequoia and Lila Dougly, the Catering Sales Manager. From the minute we called, Lila to control. It was a Friday afternoon and within 24-hours, we had a plan in place and could breathe. The outside space gives the feeling that you are on a luxury liner. It's perfect for mingling and cocktails. The interior is sleek and modern, but not ultra-modern. Coming from Florida, I loved the light fixtures! The food is delicious and what really impressed me is that the soup was actually hot and so was our main dish. This doesn't happen often!  All-in-all, if you're looking for a lovely venue with many entertainment options and a person to help guide you through the entire process, head to the Sequoia!
