Wedding Testimonials: The Real Deals
LINDSAY & BRENDAN
Mother of the Bride – My daughter was recently married at the Basin Harbor. Most of our wedding guests stayed at the resort, either in the main lodge, the Homestead lodge or the individual cottages. All of our guests were delighted with the beautiful scenery of the lake and the gardens, the variety of activities offered, the accommodations, the food, and the overall friendly atmosphere of the staff.
Because our guests stayed for two nights, this became an entire wedding week-end of celebrations. Anne Henderson, the wedding coordinator and her staff could not have been more helpful. They were responsive to our questions, and made certain that no detail was left out. Anne really made it an exceptional event for our family and all of our guests.
ALYSON & KEVIN
Father of the Bride – For several months leading up to the wedding weekend, I had several occasions to make reservations for myself, friends, and elderly aunts. On each opportunity to speak with your staff, I increasingly became more confident that the wedding would be professionally managed. In particular, Heidi, Kate, Ann and Sarah, could not have been nicer, more polite, or helpful in finding and securing accommodations for my elderly aunts. The wedding ceremony rehearsal was Friday morning, June 12th when I first met Anne Henderson. She thoroughly walked each person through their responsibility and everyone was clear. At the conclusion, Anne wished to discuss Friday night’s reception at the North Dock. In meteorologist-like fashion, she described that evening’s weather forecast and presented the option to us of an alternate location. Since it appeared a 50-50 proposition that it would rain, everyone was in agreement that we would roll the dice.
Disaster. We should have listened to Anne as we got rained on pretty mightily. What happened next was miraculous. Through Anne’s leadership, calmness, and diligence, the staff was able to move the audio-visual show, sound, all of the food and beverage, set up tables and chairs, from the North Dock to the larger tent, already set up ( thank God ) for Saturday’s dinner. What was amazing was the continuous stream of employees getting soaked so that the guests could move up the hill under umbrellas. Saturday’s wedding dinner was perfect, the food outstanding, and, as all weekend, the employees were truly spectacular.
