My husband and I had a perfect wedding at Mallard Island Yacht Club from the start of the planning process to day after my wedding. Danielle was so responsive and easy to work with from start to finish. She is very thorough and made sure EVERYTHING was taken care of and perfect! On the day of our wedding, Danielle and her staff were so attentive and helpful. The actual day went so smoothly. Danielle even took numerous pictures of every single aspect throughout the day, which we greatly appreciated! It is obvious that she loves her job.

We were a little concerned about being able to hear cars going by during our ceremony, but we DID NOT hear a thing! All of our guests were raving about the place, from the food to the staff to the breathtaking grounds. Given the chance to do it all over again, I would absolutely choose Mallard a second time, and would request to work with the exact same staff. I actually cried when leaving the morning after our wedding, because I had such an amazing experience that I did not want it to end!

My son was married at Mallard Island Yacht Club, and this was truly a wedding of distinction. The venue is gorgeous, and its staff is super. From beginning to end, Danielle was perfect to work with, and made the whole process very easy. She truly took care of most questions and concerns prior to as well as the day of wedding, even considering that bride/groom live in another state. I could not ask for a more perfect wedding, and our guests are still talking about the "best wedding they ever went to"!!!
As the person involved in most decisions for this wedding, on the day of the wedding Danielle and the staff made sure everything went according to plans.....I was totally relaxed and knew Danielle was taking care of everything !!! A wedding at Mallard Island is hard to top !!!!

We had our daughter's wedding reception at the Mallard Island Yacht Club on May 16, 2015. It exceed our expectations. The bridal suite is stunning and it was so much fun to have everyone getting hair and makeup done in the beauty salon that is part of the suite. I was able to put goodies in the kitchen area for everyone to enjoy before the wedding. The ballroom is elegant and sophisticated, perfect for the bride who wants to be a princess for a day. We stayed overnight after the reception and it made enjoying the reception until the very last minute an easy thing to do. The younger folks continued on to the afterparty. Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended, including their own!

Danielle is very helpful and enthusiastic. She knows the importance of the day for her clients and she strives to make the experience everything expected and more. I have to stay her stories of heroism in preventing problems and glitches the day of the wedding are quite entertaining on their own and just show how dedicated Danielle is to making each and every wedding dream come true. She clearly knows what she's doing.

Regarding food, EVERYONE to a guest raved about the food from appetizers to dessert. I have to say the cannolli station had the best cannolli I've ever eaten. It was delicious. The service was outstanding. Everyone was accommodating and attentive.

Theresa and the rest of the staff are absolutely amazing. They were so great to work with and truly cared about our day. The venue itself is beautiful (love the downstairs and upstairs different feel). We couldn't have picked a better place and people to share our wedding with! Lauren and Zack <3

Gorgeous venue!!! It is definitely expensive, but it was worth it in the end! The staff working here is also great. Danielle, the coordinator of the event made everything so seamless and easy for us. She was so great to work with throughout the whole process and knows everything about organizing a wedding at this venue. In the end we had no hang ups and were truly amazed at how our day turned out!

Mallard Island Venue was breathtaking, gorgeous. There are not enough adjectives to describe the venue and service we received at our daughter's wedding. Danielle, the event planner, at the Mallard, went above and beyond to make every detail happen. She covered every aspect and gave us great suggestions as we went through the months leading to the wedding. Every question was answered promptly to put our minds at ease. Our guests could not believe how beautiful the grounds were at the Mallard inside and outside and many said they had never been to a venue like this. Taste Catering did an unbelievable presentation at the Cocktail Hour and the Dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful. Impeccable!! Our guests raved about the food. The professionalism and service received from the Bridal Attendant, Maitre D, Servers and Bartenders was excellent.
Danielle assured me the day of the wedding "Let me take care of it." She did!
We were able to relax and enjoy our guests because of Danielle's knowledge and expertise.
Our daughter said she had the wedding of her dreams at the Mallard Island Yacht Club and she did.

We waited a long time for our daughter's wedding date to arrive-- It was held at the Mallard where Danielle and her staff made all my daughter's and son in laws dreams come true. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding planner then she was. The people are still talking about the excellent food that was served all throughout the event. The service was excellent (perhaps) a little more time for us at the end to gather our things and depart would be the only very very very tiny thing I would have liked to see handled better -- we felt a tad bit rushed, but 99.99% of the time we were treated like family.

Danielle's expertise and advice helped this frantic mom actually have time to dance the night away with no worries, and that might be the biggest compliment ever given out.

Blessing to all who made our daughter's wedding at the Mallard a "true fairy tale come true".

Mallard Island was the first venue we looked at when researching venues. When we saw the costs, we had a slight heart attack and decided we shouldn't settle on the first place. But nothing could top or come close to how amazing Mallard Island was. From the beautiful ceremony area, to all the picturesque grounds. To the amazing ballroom dance floor where the glass doors open to the outdoor patio. Our wedding made people "ooo" and "ahh" and it was worth every single penny. It was more beautiful on the day of than I could have ever imagined.

My now husband & I got married at Mallard two weeks ago (9/13/2014) and had the most amazing experience. Danielle was our point of contact and was fantastic throughout the whole process -- very professional & responsive. They really take care of you on your wedding day -- my husband and I put in a special order for a lobster tail, grilled cheese, & mac & cheese and they delivered. :) The venue is absolutely incredible, despite the rain, it was still a fabulous day. Our Matire'd was great -- the food was great, no one had to wait for a drink the entire night. I could go on & on -- you will not be disappointed. 5 out of 5!

The most beautiful wedding venue I have ever seen in my life. From the minute Mallard was built I knew I wanted to get married there. Danielle is AMAZING I don't know what we would have done without her. I can't compliment the service enough before, during, and after the wedding. All of our family and friends are still gushing about the picturesque grounds. It was well worth every penny!
