“To say that I was blown away would be an understatement. Megan is my oldest daughter and the first to be married. As a Dad, I cannot tell you how awed I was by the staff. Megan and Andy did all of the planning themselves. Her mom and I live out of town and were unable to be a part of the decision making process. You can only imagine our concern about how the staff at their chosen venue would treat them, work with them and ultimately deliver the special day they had dreamed of. All of our concerns were immediately relieved when we met Sandie, the consultant to help with linen selection. Beyond her obvious professionalism, we were so happy to see the concern, care and patience she exhibited with Megan and my wife and I. On the BIG DAY, we were thrilled beyond words with every aspect of the reception. Perhaps we were expecting to meet with some type of drama or disaster. Obviously we had been watching too much reality TV! Instead of meeting with drama and disaster that evening, we met the most amazing staff and group of people. Thank you Sandie, Shane and the ENTIRE staff! They made my baby girl’s day the most spectacular day. It’s one that I am sure she and Andy will never forget, I assure everyone, we never will”
“Dear Sandie and Shane,
Mark and I want to thank you for the beautiful affair you prepared for our children’s post-wedding reception.
We chose you because we wanted a private and lovely affair. We were thrilled with the excellence of the varied and innovative menu. Our favorites were the grilled watermelon appetizer and the butterfish in palm leaf but, truly, everything was excellent. Our friends and family raved about their meals and we are discerning eaters who have dined everywhere in the region.
The service your staff provided could only be topped by the ease of accessibility of yourselves. Thank you for your patience and expertise with my many requests.
We are so pleased with our event and feel we got wonderful value for the price we paid.
We wish you continued success”

“From the first sit down meeting my (now) husband and I felt like part of family. The staff listens to everything you have to say and don’t get annoyed when you bombard them with tons of questions via email. My guests raved about the food and service they received during the reception. I am a control freak and for once knew that I didn’t have to be in control and everything would turn out perfectly.”
“I got married August 7th, 2010 and truly can’t put into words what a wonderful experience it was. These people are just so willing to work with you. The quality of food, facilities and personal attention for the price is unmatched in any of my experiences. Shane and Sandie became two of my favorite human beings through the process. They helped with suggestions on vendors for everything from hotels, invitations, and flowers – and every place they sent me to was a great price and the people were a delight to work with. We actually even ended up having our rehearsal dinner with them – and was one of the best decisions we made. These are people that truly love what they do and they are just there to help and make the process seamless. The biggest compliment I gor from several people was that even though it was a class, elegant setting with gourmet food, it still felt like a party,k which led to a full dance floor all night. Again, I truly can’t put into words how happy I was with my experience, but I can tell you in a very stressful process these people made it so easy and a pleasure and the end result was above and beyond anything I could have ever asked for! “
I just wanted to thank you, and the rest of the staff for helping make the wedding a fun and memorable occasion for all. The venue was beautiful, the food was outstanding, and the service exceptional. A quick walk around the dining room confirmed my own feelings about dinner. People were just raving about it. I also heard several stories from guests where a staff member had gone above and beyond to accommodate them. The servers where always courteous and friendly, as well as competent and efficient.
The wedding party appreciated yours and Sandie’s direction, both at the rehearsal and on the big day. Instructions were well communicated and potentially unruly wedding party members were expertly kept in line, while the overall theme of fun and celebration was still maintained at all times.
Thank you once again for beign such a big party of why the day was so festive and memorable for everyone. “

I have gotten nothing but the highest compliments about everything! I’ve even actually had about a dozen or so people tell me it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. I could have never done that without the help of you, Shane and the wonderful staff. I’ve watched friends temporarily lose their minds while planning weddings, but I can honestly say I had no worries at all and ENJOYED this major piece of the planning process!
Thank you for making everything truly seamless. Please know, I feel truly blessed to have had you in my corner!
Thanks so much!!”
“We got married on September 4th. It was BEAUTIFUL day! Shane and Sandie could nto have done enough to make it the most perfect day for us. Sandie is an incredible wedding coordinator and is able to help you with everything. She was very thorough and followed up with us as soon as possible. The food was amazing and everyone kept telling us how great it was. We wanted everyone to have a great time. Goal accomplished! It was the most perfect wedding! We would recommend them to everyone!”
Matt, my parents, and I can’t begin to thank you for all of the work you put into our perfect wedding day. You were with me every step of the way and I know you would help keep me sane! What I didn’t know, was how much care and attention you would put into every detail of my vision. There is nothing we would change. We could not imagine having had our event with anyone else.

“My husband and I got married September 11th, 2010. Sandie and Shane did an absolutely wonderful job! Shane accomplished my every wish (including having a lobster tail for my dad!), and the food was absolutely amazing. Sandie was available whenever I needed to ask her a question, and made the day go by without any issues. So many people came up to us after the wedding to tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! I cannot say enough about how great everything was! It was a perfect day!”
“We are extremely grateful for how attentive you all were for our daughter’s wedding. You guys were always kind and patient and caring…behind the scenes as well as on the wedding day. We want you to know our expectations were exceeded!” 8/21/10 Wedding
“Shane and Sandie are wonderful people they took care of everything for us, they helped us plan the wedding step by step, and took care of everything that day! They created a timeline for us for our wedding, and made sure we stuck to it to keep things moving, we never had to wonder when do we dance or when do we cut the cake, they were there to tell us when and where. The food was also very good, brought out quickly to everyone, and all correct. I would recommend them to everyone, and loved every minute we spent with them! “
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating in our minds, a day that couldn’t have been any more perfect! We will never stop singing your praises, nor will any of our guests!”

“Our ultimate confidence in them was scheduling two weddings with them within six months. We had very favorable experiences. The personal service on the part of Shane Magee and Sandie Tyson and their staff made the weddings memorable and a gourmet treat. Their attention to detail and the pleasant absence of surprises made the each occasion a success. They clearly know how to stage and execute a wedding celebration. The ceremonies in the formal gardens were perfection, the brides were treated with gentle attention and the families were impressed with the events”
