Trillium Links & Lake Club
Food and Beverage Director Thomas Henderson and Chef James Hargis made my wedding day exceptional. The food was exactly like what I'd wanted (and more) and the staff treated me and my guests like royalty.
At other venues I was told to select my menu from a list of options, instead Mr. Henderson and Chef Hargis met with me and talked about my favorite foods and what I'd like to have. I thought that since the clubhouse is so chic and upscale, this might be the kind of place that got snooty when I mentioned needing to stick to a budget. They didn't bat an eyelash. They were totally professional and laid back and suggested ways that I could have pricey food (shrimp, crab, alcohol, etc.) served in ways that would make it go further and wouldn't be as expensive, like shrimp and grits (my fav) instead of cocktail shrimp. More than a dozen people have told me that my wedding food was the best they'd ever had.
The venue is absolutely spotless and SO much nicer than any hotel ballroom you'll find in the area. The staff were all impeccably dressed and so gracious and polite. Several of my guests went out of their way later to tell me how remarkable the venue and its staff were.
Initially, the per person food and beverage minimum may seem high, but you need to consider that EVERYTHING is taken care of. They even provided the centerpieces and extra tables and chairs that I needed. I didn't have to book anything extra. That made my wedding day much less stressful and I was able to bask the happiness of the day. In the long run, I think it was much cheaper than if I had used another venue and the view and atmosphere at the Trillium Clubhouse are unparalleled.
