Celeste Smith & Allie & Chris

Mike, What can I say? IT WAS PERFECT!!!! The room was beautiful, the staff so helpful, and the food and drink was to die for!! One of the guests was a personal chef and could not stop taking about how good the food tasted. The entire evening was classy without being pretentious. My sister, who has been to many high end southern weddings, said it was the nicest wedding she has ever attended. There is just something about a reception where the entire place is dedicated to you and your event. The open bar was perfect. I thought the chef coming out was a nice touch, also that the staff knew our names and were so courteous. People kept asking if they could help load the car, pick up, and we said no, the staff does it. Allie and Chris said they would not change a thing. They had a great time planning and you made her feel special. What wonderful memories we will have!! Thanks again!
