The Pines was absolutely AMAZING and well worth the cost. The facility is gorgeous. The Reception banquet is on the top level of their club near the restaurant. You enter in the front where you walk through a gorgeous hallway with a fireplace. The banquet hall has three walls made up of windows that outlook the golf course. The decorations in the place are beautiful and there is no need for extravagant flowers on tables. The food was delicious. We had a duet of salmon and chicken rather than giving choices (chicken vs. beef). People said that the food we had was the best wedding food they had ever had because it wasn't wedding food. Deb was extremely flexible with me. She was very organized and made the night run very smoothly. I wish I could get married again so that I could have an excuse to have another event there.
