More great feedback for The Marina at American Wharf Weddings!

November 25th, 2014 • By Marina Marketing and Brand
Hello Renee!
I just wanted to tell you how gorgeous our wedding came together. It was absolutely wonderful. I wanted to thank you for being so great and working with us. I also wanted to tell you how awesome Michael was as well. I totally missed the 125 chairs provided and he went out of his way to make sure we got a price for them, they got picked up for us, as well as making sure we had all of the tables and linens to make our special day perfect. The boys that were working that day as well were great. They helped us unload cars with flowers, centerpieces, etc. and helped us get in the boathouse and make sure we had everything we needed.
I wanted to thank you again, the property was absolutely breathtaking.

Some great feedback!

How lucky we are to get such positive feedback from our wedding event clients, and we strive to extend the same quality of service to your upcoming function!

Dear Bobby,
I just want to tell you how thrilled we were with the lovely brunch that you did on September 21st after the wedding. The setting is so unique and festive, but that is only the beginning of a wonderful event. The food and selections were well beyond our expectations. Congratulations to your chef and all of your staff. They were so attentive to our guests and it was most appreciated. The flowers were beautiful and I can not tell you how many folks that took home a centerpiece have contacted me and said that they lasted for over a week.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you in planning the brunch. Everyone had a really nice time and commented on what a great setting, food, and service you provided. Thank you so much.

Best wishes to you and your family for a most pleasant fall.
Warm regards-
Chris Quencer
