We knew that the Bushnell would be a special venue after you gave us our tour last year but it, and you, surpassed our expectations. We had a high comfort level with you right from the start and appreciated the timeliness of your e-mail replies. Thank you for ensuring that we had everything we wanted and suggesting things that we hadn't even thought of, such as the posters and pictures on the stairs and stage.
I can't tell you how many of our guests commented on how nice the Seaverns and Autorino rooms are. Also, you and your team expertly managed the unexpected early arrival of some of our guests due to our ceremony running much shorter than we thought.
It was a perfect day. Thank you for your contribution.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better night! The decorations, the lights, the food, and the productions were all outstanding! People were amazed and I think the way the night progressed kept everyone’s attention! It was planned perfectly.”
