Jeff and I were introduced to each other through my brother, Jon. During my first few weeks of college Jon invited me out to see his friends’ band play a concert. Low and behold, Jeff was the drummer! We had talked on and off for about two years, and even though both of us liked each other (and everyone around us was trying to get us together!), neither of us made a move. From the night we met though, I’m not sure how, but I knew he was going to be right for me. I guess I know why now! It was meant to be.
As we began our venue search, several people had told us about The Villa and they couldn’t say enough good things. After scheduling our first tour, we immediately knew we had found the right venue. The Grand Ballroom was absolutely perfect for the classic wedding style we had envisioned. As I looked around the room, I could see the wedding coming together before my eyes. Additionally, we were so impressed with the service from the start. Everyone went out of their way to ensure that we got the wedding date we wanted, the price we needed for our budget, and all within a timely, respectful manner. We canceled all of our other tours after seeing The Villa (and they were our first one!).
It’s so hard to pick just one favorite part! I’m being completely honest when I say this. Every little detail was perfect, and the whole day went flawlessly. Everything from relaxing and getting ready in the gorgeous bridal suite, to saying “I Do” to my husband in the garden surrounded by all of our family and friends, to our lovely event staff who brought us drinks and kept us fed during pictures, to enjoying the rest of the night with dancing and INCREDIBLE food, to stealing a minute for sunset pictures on the bridge (which are our favorites out of all the photos!). All of our guests still come up to us and rave about how wonderful our wedding was from the food, to the staff, to the venue, and everything in between. They all say it was the best wedding they have ever been to and were so impressed!
