Every email and phone call were answered in a timely manner (no more than a day). Every dream we had for the day was met with enthusiasm and excitement. Every single guest loved the look and style of the venue and realized exactly why we chose Ottawa to hold our special day. TJ went above and beyond and I never questioned if he would come through with something.
