I won't lie-I was disappointed when I found out we were not going to be working with Jen, as she did an amazing job touring us around all the venues. If it weren't for Jen, we wouldn't have booked with McHale’s so please give her the credit for booking us! However, after working with Brent, I feel that we were so incredibly lucky to have worked with such a down to earth, easy going event planner that listens to what I wanted/needed and help to make it happen. I honestly cannot say enough about how great she is. Even at the food tasting, we were running late to the airport and Brent packed us up cake to go in a large tub! Brent was fabulous! She put up with me being crazy and asking probably 100 more questions than she wanted to answer, but she never once didn't respond in a quick/professional manner and handled me quite nicely! She let me come in anytime I was in town even if it was just to look around, and gave her opinion on decorating the room, as well as windows-up/down, etc. She listened to what I wanted, and didn't try to sell me on things or spend more money than I needed to. It was seriously FLAWLESS! Between McHale’s and the vendors listed below, our wedding was seriously PERFECT! (I know that sounds cliché because it's ours, but it seriously was.) Not only did we love how it was decorated, but the staff was phenomenal! I was blown away with everyone going above and beyond. We were greeted right as we (bridal party) came in the door. Snacks and drinks were brought to us and our order was taken so everyone would have drinks at dinner. Our bags were also taken and placed behind our tables. Then, I believe it was Nancy, made sure that I (bride) didn't carry my plate or serve myself (didn't want my dress getting dirty) and made sure we had drinks. I never went to the bar once. My bridesmaids and dad had similar experiences with drink replenishments and felt they never had to wait. Our guests raved about the food, even a few weeks later. Everyone thought the venue was beautiful and liked our signature cocktail, so thanks for helping us get that together. The ice sculpture was also a very nice touch, so thanks Brent for that suggestion. Brent did an incredible job helping us plan and organize the event. It was my first wedding, my parents’ first, the groom’s parents first, and she was incredibly patient with all of our questions. We were so blown away by the experience with the event, how does it get better than perfect?! On our way to the honeymoon, I asked my husband what he was most surprised about/not expecting at the wedding. He said, "Two things – I didn't expect the venue to look good because when I saw it, it was an empty ballroom. You had a vision and I was surprised how fancy and formal you all transformed it to be ... and the DJ. There's nothing they could have done better, they did everything right." His granny said, "You all seriously had the best and most prettiest wedding – all of it. The church, the venue, everything."
