Thank you so much for the rave review!! We are thrilled that you had a wonderful time at the reception. It was really an honor to have Kelly and Nick celebrate their special day with us!!
The ballroom is absolutely beautiful with the high ceilings, chandeliers, marble floor and all the other amenities! The food was exquisite, especially the pasta and crepe stations. I loved the corn and crab bisque. The chocolate fountain was spectacular and delicious. The variety was endless, more things available that I could ever need. The staff was great and well informed about the dishes they were serving. The wh... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
