From the very beginning, we were taken back by how amazing they were to work with. We worked with Michael, who was truly a pleasure to work with. I was blown away with how helpful he was and sensitive to our needs. Michael worked with us on making sure everything we wanted happened or could happen. It was a nice feeling to feel so at ease while being stressed about other components of planning. We held our ceremony and reception here.

The food was absolutely phenomenal. My husband and I went to the taste testing by ourselves because we didn't really want the opinion of a bunch of other people. They give you SO much food for the tasting, I'd recommend bringing a couple of people with you. Everything was delicious. Choosing everything was very simple and Michael really helped explain everything to us very thoroughly.

The week of the wedding, we brought in our decor (centerpieces, favors, etc.) and went over the set up. This was something I was worried about, as I'm sure most brides are. I was nervous things wouldn't be set up to my liking or specifications. I was worried for no reason! They totally blew me away and I couldn't have asked for a better set up.

At The Fountainhead, you get a bridal attendant. Ours was Breann. She was AMAZING! The moment she approached me to help me out of the car, she was happy and bubbly. She talks to you like she's known you forever. Breann went over how the whole night would flow and answered any questions I had. She walked me through everything step-by-step. She made sure I had water and that I ate before the ceremony and kept me at ease. She showed me the decor in the chapel and made sure I liked the set up: everything was perfect! For the cocktail hour, Breann made sure me and my husband had food from different stations and drinks in hand. It was great. We didn't make it past the entrance of the cocktail hour because everyone was talking to us, but Breann made sure we were taken care of.

Everything was incredible!

We just got married last August 30, 2014 and we are so so so happy that we chose The Fountainhead as our reception venue. THe place was spectacular and the food was completely divine! Everyone is raving about our wedding and how amazing the food was and how beautiful the place is. Andy was such a pleasure to work with he made things easy for us and made sure we got everything we wanted. Joseph our Maitre'D was on point that night and made sure our night went as expected and my bridal attendant Jessica was the sweetest person ever! She always made sure that i had everything i needed and even helped me when i had to use the bathroom and my dress was so puffy! SHe even packed us food because she knew we werent able to eat dinner. If you are considering the fountainhead as your wedding venue dont even think twice!! You will NOT regret it at all. It is one of the best decisions we have ever made and we are definitely having our future children's wedding there!!!! Thank you for everything guys!!!

Best,

Joey and Michelle :)

Where do I begin? Our banquet manager, Andy went above and beyond. He was with us every step of the way. He was patient and helped to clear up misunderstandings. He wanted to make sure that the vision my husband and I had became a reality. On our wedding day Breann was a breath of fresh air. I didn't have to do or think about anything. From the time we arrived to the time we departed we were well taken care of by everyone.
Our guests were pleased by the abundance of food. Additionally, our vegetarian guests were pleased that they did not have to starve. We have gotten nothing but rave reviews about our wedding and we that to the Fountainhead staff.

A million "Thank Yous" won't suffice.

I got married at the Fountainhead on July 19, 2014 and had a lovely wedding celebration and an incredibly stress free experience thanks largely to Andy DeMario (the General Manager) and his staff. My husband and I bantered between having our wedding some place in the city at either a hotel or just having a cocktail reception at a restaurant in the city but we decided on the Fountainhead because of a # of reasons: price point (excellent pricing); beautiful venue; a HUGE bridal suite; onsite chapel; all inclusive cocktail reception, open bar, pass hors d'oeuvres, 5 or 6 course meal; valet, etc. I even had a personal assistant who was at my disposal for the duration of the wedding celebration. My assistant's name was Breanna and she was AMAZING! Andy was also amazing and VERY accommodating. i am vegan and gluten free and my husband is Turkish. we requested that the menu be vegan and gluten free with Turkish food. i even requested a vegan and gluten free cake and Andy went out of his way to make certain that his pastry chef could make a cake to meet our dietary restrictions. The service at the Fountainhead is very top notch - similar to service that you would receive at a top tier private country club - all of the staff were extra ordinarily attentive, professional as if they were groomed to provide top tier service. If I was going to get married again, I would definitely have my wedding at the Fountainhead and have Andy's team handle all of the logistics.

Charles was our banquet manager and from the first day that we met him to the day of our wedding, he was the best guy we could have worked with. He was always accommodating and answered all of our questions in person, on the phone or by email and made sure that whatever we wanted, he would make it happen. He helped us plan our wedding and made sure that our wedding went as smooth as possible on the night of the wedding.

The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. The cocktail hour atrium area with the arched glass is absolutely beautiful. Everyone loved the cocktail hour especially with the amount and QUALITY of food that was served. We have some of the pickiest relatives and even they were raving about the food for weeks to come. So many of our guests were so full from cocktail hour, they could barely finish their entrees - which they ABSOLUTELY loved. Everyone loved the 3 entrees - the filet mignon, the mirin glazed salmon and the roasted chicken. EVEN THE CHICKEN WAS DELICIOUS. The best part was as the bride and groom, we asked for all 3 entrees (because we knew they were awesome) and French fries (yes French fries!!). Can you believe that we wanted french fries and they gave it to us!?! Everyone also loved the desserts (in addition to cake) - it was a dessert sampler with 3 small things so everyone had something that they enjoyed. And the best part at the end of the night was the lemon Italian ices that was served and everyone loved it.

And our bridal attendant and maître d were amazing as well. Jessica was our bridal attendant and Joseph was our maître d. They were both incredibly helpful and always ready to get us what we needed. Because my husband and I can't really drink, they were able to fill our champagne glasses with ginger ale for the toasts and no one was the wiser! Also, they were constantly refilling our glasses with soda or iced tea. I can't thank them and Charles enough for their help. We couldn't have chosen a better place.

We just celebrated our wedding two weeks ago. We had the best experience at The Fountainhead. That was the only venue we visited. And we are thrilled to say that we are happy that we didn't attempt to visit other venues. The Fountainhead is a venue of elegance. And the staff is amazing. We worked with Andy. His personality cannot be explained-so helpful, sincere and kind. He did everything to make our day extra special and enjoyable. And Brianne was my bridal attendant. She made me feel like a queen. She was with me from beginning to end and saw to it that I was satisfied in every way. She was so helpful. It was a pleasure working with the staff members that assisted us. We felt that the staff was like our own family. And the food was awesome..such a huge variety. Everyone is still complementing every aspect of our wedding and much credit goes to The Fountainhead staff. We had our dream wedding.

We had our wedding at The Fountainhead this past weekend and it was nothing short of spectacular! From the very beginning, Andy at the Fountainhead was extremely helpful and was truly willing to work with us. All our friends and family have said that it was the best wedding they've ever been too. The cocktail hour ALONE had more food in it than most people's weddings! All the food from beginning with cocktail hr to the very end with the mini Viennese was top notch. We also had our ceremony at the Fountainhead and were able to personalize it by bringing in our own pianist. Andy even let us come in a week early to have us practice in addition to him orchestrating our rehearsal the day before. Also, when you book your wedding with the Fountainhead you also get to have a personal bridal attendant. The attendant who assisted with our wedding was a young woman named Breann. She was AMAZING. She was there from 11 in the morning when we arrived to after 1am when we left and she was always there for me whenever I needed her. She helped by making sure the bridal party ate throughout the long day, she set out our place cards for us, put out our programs, laid out the runner, helped with any dress mishaps, she even made my husband and I plates of food during cocktail hr and wrapped food for me to take home. She made the day SO easy and enjoyable for all of us. She even was able to get buffalo sauce out of my dress for me in under a minute! She truly was a Godsend for the day. On top of running around for us all day, she was the absolute sweetest thing! Our entire experience at Fountainhead from the planning stages to the end of our wedding was truly wonderful. We can't thank Andy, Breann and the rest of the Fountainhead staff enough! They helped to give us the best wedding we would've ever dreamed of!

We just had our wedding there, and we could not be happier!!

As soon as I read the rave reviews about the food, I had a feeling that I would fall in love with this venue. When we went in to meet Andy, I knew that I was right. He assured us that they could accommodate our every request, and they absolutely delivered!

Andy, one of the banquet managers, was professional, charming, responsive, calmed my jitters, and was very flexible.

Jessica, my bridal attendant was a godsend. She met me at the door of The Fountainhead the morning of my wedding and was by my side (without being obtrusive) the entire time. From pinning my falling dress to packing the groom and I leftovers for the road, Jessica was amazing!

Joseph, our maitre d', was extremely helpful and made sure that service went seamlessly. From greeting all the guests to bringing my brother a glass of champagne when he got choked up during his toast, Joseph was spot on.

The food...OMG!! Andy told us that our guests would think the cocktail hour was the dinner, and he was right. Our guests could not believe how much food there was and how delicious everything tasted. We chose the caviar/vodka station, the Asian station, and the Southern station. Our guests raved and raved about the food and the open bar.

Andy even referred me to a cigar company so that I could surprise my new husband with a cigar rolling station. The guys declared me "wife of the year" after that one :)

If you're considering any place other than The Fountainhead for your wedding, you're losing your mind. This venue is beautiful, the staff are ridiculously attentive, the food is sublime, and our guests went on and on about how this was the best wedding they had ever been to.

Andy, Jessica, Joseph, and all of the other awesome staff...thank you, thank you, thank you for making our big day more amazing than we ever imagined it could be!!!
