Mallard Island and Merri-Makers were AMAZING!!!

I first met Gianna at a tour for Mallard in January 2021 and she has been amazing since the fist day I met her. She was so organized and helped me through the entire planning process. We met multiple times throughout the year leading up to the wedding and she made the entire wedding planning process easy and stress free. The day of the wedding- I couldn’t ask for anything better.

The staff at Mallard and Merri-Makers were INCREDIBLE. We had bridal assistants that helped with EVERYTHING. They helped me stay organized with vendor tips, helped my husband sew his button back on his jacket after it popped off, brought me a drink whenever I had an empty hand!!! If there was a problem- I did not know about it and it was handled.

The place itself is beautiful. My cocktail hour was outdoor and the views are gorgeous. It was a windy day but the building blocked the wind so no ones hair got ruined! :D. The food was incredible. My guests were raving about how much food was at cocktail hour and how good it was!! When it was time for dinner, the service was unmatched. White glove service, the staff was so kind and friendly, the food was so delicious. We had chicken, steak, salmon offered and everyone said the food was so the best wedding food they ever had. Not one complaint.

After dinner we opened up the doors on the dance floor and my guests LOVED it. It was a perfect night and we had the summer breeze while dancing all night. I also rented the Mallard with the overnight rooms so we had our bridal party stay over. All of my guests had an amazing time and said it was the best wedding ever!! I could go on and on about Mallard, Gianna, Nancy, Lauren, Merri-Makers…everyone was amazing. I had the best wedding day ever!!
