Marc and I want to thank you again for everything. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the Colannade is and how wonderful the dinner was. The cake did not go to waste 🙂 and everything was perfect. I appreciate everything you and your staff did. It truly made a wonderful night and I am not sure if you coordinated the snow for Saturday but that to was beautiful 🙂
Thank you again for everything. Have a wonderful day.

Well ... let me tell you : the "English tea" was stupendous!
First of all - the space is just lovely. Like most older homes, it is made up of multiple smaller spaces rather than one large area. Each one has been restored beautifully ... the main "space" has a magnificent chandelier and tray ceiling ... and holds about 60-75 (seated). Adjacent rooms can be used for the same event or not ... as required.
The menu was just lovely- service was careful and attentive without being over the top. China, place settings, etc were all just lovely ... "old money good taste" ( even though they are, clearly new) in every way as compared to anything more "showy"
We started with a little composed salad topped with sliced chicken. That was served at each place . A really breathtaking bread basket ( deserves the descriptor : scones, palmiers, small muffins, etc ... not just bread!)
Then, the staff arranged a center table with a gorgeous display of very ornate and tiny tea sandwiches, several cold salads and some sliced melon. Veddy veddy English!
Dessert was placed at each table ... a small three tiered server with teeny little pastries!
It was all just so CIVILIZED!!!!!
Paul & Joshua,
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you both very much for a wonderful event. My daughter was thrilled with how professionally and beautifully everything was handled for her Bridal Shower, from the door greeter, gift representative, all the waiters and staff and of course the both of you, for making her feel so special. The food was exquisite, perfectly prepared and served. The floral arrangements were stunning and right in keeping with her flower choices and Victorian theme. Since arriving home, my phone has not stopped ringing with compliments for a wonderful affair. I will NOT hesitate to recommend to all my friends and co-workers, your establishment for any event they may have planned and will use you in the future for all my special events. You were a joy to work with and I cannot come close to expressing mine and my husband’s gratitude for all that you did.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you and Paul for providing Nikki with a very special day. She was completely in awe of the days' experience; as was the entire group. ( I've been getting phone calls all night) You and Paul, as well as your entire friendly and professional staff provide such a welcoming venue in which to enjoy oneself. The drinks, food, desserts, ( and thanks for the mousse) Everything was perfect!
Bryan was dying to experience the menu choices and was happy when we brought his goodie bag home!
Paul's design for the centerpieces was so beautiful. Everyone loved them and will certainly enjoy their beauty for days.
You met our Aunt Etta: 83 yrs young, beige outfit. She fell in love with you and wanted to hug you and give you kisses but feared she would embarass you. She said to me tonight: " I just love that young man Josh!"
And on that note I will say Thank You again and bid you Good Night.
