People get married. It's what happens.
Jobs don't, or shouldn't. "Hey that doctor married the pharmacist." Sure that happens but 95% of all weddings are just two people. Two regular people looking for an extraordinary day. So what difference does that make for a venue? Does it? I guess it comes down to the people providing you that experience.
When you choose your venue, it's very much like buying a car in some ways. you need to shop and actually go there to see it and see if the photos are accurate. You need to see if their garden or their tables are as nice as that one image is. Heck, with Instagram these days we can all pull off an outstanding photo, right? So your venue needs to live up to expectations, sure. What else is there?
It's a very simple answer. The people. Who will be working with you to ensure your wedding day is all it can be. When you shop for the right venue, it's very important to ensure that the people who will be providing that experience that day are people you can and want to work with. It sounds so very simple, but do you buy your care from the pushy jerk or the person you relate to? They ask you for recommendations afterward, but would you recommend your "sales experience" to a friend, regardless of how nice the car is?
We don't sell you. We won't mislead to "land the deal" for your wedding. We are regular people who honestly will be standing behind the flowers in the garden to enjoy your ceremony and likely be shedding a tear at how beautiful the day was. We don't claim to be the perfect match for every couple and the park won't always be YOUR ideal spot. We get that. We promise that the people here are genuine and we actually get to know our couples. The brick memorial walkway is chock full of couples married here and some by our own staff. We bring you as much as we can and bottom line, you have a lot that you will stress over on your wedding ... don't let the venue or venue staff be a part of it.
