In our Guests own words...

Hi Sophie,

I wanted to write and thank you and your staff for all of their help making my daughters’ wedding a success. Our friends and family are still talking about the beautiful venue and event. My experience from our first meeting to the final breakfast had been nothing but positive. Your calming demeanor and reassuring presence made all the difference. You tirelessly answered all my questions and emails (even when off) and insured that our vision for the wedding became reality. This type of service distinguishes you from the other places in my experience.

Particularly, we were impressed by both you and Derrick at the reception. When we forgot to include a chair on our table listing, it was there before our guest even realized. When we asked for a table to be moved, it was done effortlessly. The food was outstanding and the best I have ever had at a wedding. The chef insured that each guest got the same quality of food, which was even better than at the tasting! The breakfast was beyond our expectations as well. One older relative even commented that this was the best wedding she had ever attended, and that the breakfast food was unbelievable!

The highlight of the night came seeing the pure happiness and joy in our daughter and my new son-in-laws’ eyes. They both told us this was the best day of their life, and the wedding was exactly what they had dreamed of. Carl and I thank you because it definitely was one of our best days as well, and you made this happen. I will highly recommend the Atheneum. My youngest even said “I would love to have my reception there!” (hopefully not for a little while at least)

Dear Sophie,

My wife and I would like to express our deepest gratitude for your wonderful help and planning our daughters’ wedding! It turned out BEAUTIFUL! Your oversight of the whole night was superb. Your entire staff could not have been more professional. Derrick and his crew, the Chef and the kitchen staff, and the servers and bartenders were first class all the way.

So many of our guests commented on how wonderful everything was that evening. I’m sure you will get future bookings from some of our guests.

Again, thank you from the bottom of our heart! Have a wonderful summer and hope to see you again soon.

Hi Sophie!

I want to take a minute to just THANK YOU for everything the past year and a half! Our wedding on Saturday was the most magical day ever. The service we had at the Atheneum was truly the “Red Carpet Experience”.

Sophie, Derrick, the bartenders, servers, and staff were the most professional team we have worked with. Our guests could not stop talking about how friendly and attentive the staff at the Atheneum were, and everyone enjoyed their stay and their time at the wedding.

The food and drinks were the best we have ever had a t a wedding, too! People were telling us on the dance floor that they couldn’t believe how amazing everything was!

Thank you for being there to make everything run smoothly! We appreciate all of your help.

From the very initial phone call to Tina through the completion of the event, Tina literally went above and beyond at every single turn! From coordinating multiple walk-through’s, to menu changes, to assisting with vendors and other tasks, Tina was, and is, exemplary!! Total gem. I also must call the staff on duty at the International Center, not only the evening of – but also the day before! They were second to none. Just a complete joy to work with.
