This is a great place to have a wedding if you want an elegant wedding on a small budget. The cake, DJ, coordinator, food, drink and linens werw all included--the price can range anywhere from $5000 to $10000 depending on the time of year. Dead of winter weddings (January, late December) are cheapest if you don't mind getting married at this time of year. Warning--this place books up fast so if you want it, you need to alert them immediately. The only problem was that the coordinator was a little disorganized--we gave specific instructions to the DJ on what music to play when (we had compiled a list of our own songs and given it to the DJ) but it was't followed. Many of the songs we had requested for the dancing session were not played at al. :( At the end of the ceremony, our favors were simply thrown away. When I went to retrive my bridesmaid bouquet, the coordinator had already thrown away the water and was ready to pocket the vase--I had to ask for it back. We felt a little rushed towards the end, as we were the AM wedding and they were getting the place ready for the evening wedding. (Yes, they do 2 weddings a day) Overall, great value for your money.

Raquel is very sweet, friendly and sociable, and she definately knows her trade. She was helpful enough to tell the bride that the hairstyle she wanted was "not going to work without a haircut" and that the hairstyle the bride had chosen for me was not going to look good with my face shape. Unfortunately, she is also a litle unprofessional. She was more than 30 minutes late to the trial session and did not answer her phone;she was also 30 minutes late to the wedding day session, and we had requested her to come by 6 a.m. When she arrived, she had no idea that she was going to do hair and makeup for both the bride and me. If you can be flexible, then do it.
