“I honestly never could have imagined just how amazing the whole experience, from the planning to the actual wedding day, would be. While so many of my friends who are married had told me of all the stress leading up to the day, I found it very enjoyable, with our regular call-ins to see how everything was tracking, the ease of using information from the web planner, and the constant knowledge that I had a coordinator there should I need absolutely anything. Hayden and I would not change a single element of our wedding. It simply was, perfect! The venue looked beautiful, romantic and elegant. The suppliers exceeded all, the food was absolutely incredible and we had many guests comment that it was the best time they had ever had at a wedding. The ambience was lovely and everyone had so much fun! But in particular, all the staff at Villa Botanica were so attentive, dedicated, friendly and genuinely excited to share in our day. Each and every one of you played a role in the success of our wedding and we will forever be grateful to you for making this possible.”
