Help Us Make Your Day a Success

Our number one suggestion for the day of is that you assign a point person to handle questions or concerns that arise. When something is off plan, we want to take care of with your point person so that you do not have extra stress on your big day!

We also suggest that you assign someone ahead of time to make sure all the gift are gathered up and make it back to you. And someone else to gather up what you want to keep from the décor, flowers, and food. We add to our collection of vases, plates, candles, and so on with the leftovers from previous events. So, please, if it is important to you, make sure someone is designated to grab it! We, of course, will return it upon request. However, with so many events happening at our facility, we cannot guarantee that an important item will not be misplaced after the end of the event.
