Where do I begin? From the first time my husband and I contacted Gianna to then meeting her in person I knew she was the perfect fit to be part of our wedding planning process. We not only fell in love with the Mallard, but we fell in love with the staff as well.

The Mallard is a perfect venue with gardens and water surrounding the venue. The reception hall was an escape by feeling like you were transported somewhere else from the floor to ceiling windows by the beautiful view. And the FOOD was by far delicious. The chef went above and beyond. (The food tasting is such a fun part and at one point my husband wasn’t just “tasting” the food he was actually going back for seconds because it was so delicious.

Gianna, the event coordinator, was always there to answer our calls or emails at any time even on her days off. She helped us with questions or issues that we didn’t know how to deal with. She was amazing, amazing, amazing! When our big day came we met the rest of the staff. Nancy was delightful and throughout the day Nancy and Gianna would check up on me and Joe to make sure we were okay. To see their faces during such an emotional and exciting day, We knew we didn’t have to worry about anything that was going on with the set up. I trusted them and they ensured us to enjoy our morning.

Everyone I talked to ranted and raved about the wedding. My friends were so impressed with the staff as was I. One of my bridesmaids ripped her dress and Jordan (the bridal attended) came out of nowhere with a sewing kit to fit one of my bridesmaids dresses. My bridesmaid didn’t even say anything but there was someone always on site with us. This is very assuring!

The night staff was just impeccable as well. I woke up with coffee and treats. The rest of our wedding décor was all ready for us to be packed up and everything was there for us to take home. As we were driving away, the only thing I was upset about was that I was not able to come back to the Mallard for a meeting and our wedding day was over. Again, I am so happy we decided to have our wedding at the Mallard. I would never choose another venue in a million years.

The staff at the Mallard made our special day run so smoothly. I would do it over 1000++ times again.

THANK YOU TO THE STAFF AND GIANNA! We adore you all so much and from the bottom of our hearts we are so thankful for you all for making mine and Joes day so easy going and special!
