Hi Mary,

Thank you for all the outstanding help and support in the planning and execution of the wedding.  From our first meeting (October 2021 !), through the rehearsal on Friday,  you have been such a true professional, and always so responsive and pleasant to work with.  It gave us such confidence (and avoided a lot of stress) knowing that we had you to make sure we were not  missing any details.

Also, please share this email with Nancy, our day of Event Coordinator, and any staff and management as you think appropriate.

The Big Day

WOW, what a day it was!  You folks did an amazing job, so professional, seamless, and all with smiles on your faces.

There are so many things we want to mention, but I’ll try to keep it brief.

The venue looked spectacular.  From the time we checked in Saturday,  we were in good hands.  You made sure that we were all were we should be at any given time.  Any questions or requests we had were promptly answered.

Nancy, the way you coordinated the actual ceremony was great, from the lining up and entrance, to the exit and to coordinate the guests flow to the reception.  During the evening I appreciated how you were there for anything, even making sure I had something to eat at the cocktail hour, and giving us a heads-up when things like the toasts and special dances were approaching.  Your calm demeanor and smile helped ease the jitters.

The reception, well I am kind of running out of superlatives. The coordination between the Venue, Merri-Makers, and Neptune Liquors was seamless.  The room was breathtaking, the meal and service level of the staff was flawless.  We had many guests comment on what an amazing reception it was, with quite a few saying it was the nicest wedding they had ever attended.  I know people generally compliment the hosts on the reception, but I don’t remember hearing people say this at other weddings Julie and I have attended.  Julie and I were/are so proud, saying repeatedly over the last few days how happy we are that we had the wedding at Bonnet Island.

I could go on, but I’ll stop there.


Thanks again.



Julie and Mike M.
