Here’s What A Few Of Our Wedding Couples Had To Say

To Susan, Diana, and the Pond House Staff

My wedding on Saturday Oct 18, 2014 couldn’t not have gone any better. All my guests raved about the beautiful room where our reception was, the stunning park, and the exceptional mouth watering food!!  During the whole wedding planning process and with all the stress you went above and beyond making me feel that everything would be perfect… and it was.  Special attention and detail was given to certain guests and their dietary restrictions which made them feel at ease and that you care.  I would recommend you all to anyone getting married.
Now as we start our journey together, Michael and I know that Elizabeth Park and the Pond House will always be in our hearts. We will come back and think highly of the special memories we made here.

Beyond thank you!! <3 -Mariel & Michael

Hello Susan,

I am so thankful to you and the entire staff for making our daughter’s wedding a most beautiful and memorable event!!! I am thrilled with how gracious and accommodating you were and the care you took with all of our guests!! I shall sing your praises to anyone who will listen!

Thank you again, Fondly, Loyalty F.

Hi Susan,

I just want to share with you that Brianna and Matt’s wedding reception was just perfect.  They said they would not have changed a single thing about it!  We thank you for your help along the way.  The centerpieces and fireplace were just beautiful!  The care you took to all of the special details was quite apparent!  We can’t thank you enough.

All the best, Conrad & Beverly

Hi Susan,

I cannot thank you enough for how beautiful our wedding was! You and your team did an amazing job from day one.  Planning a wedding is not an easy task, but you made it as stress and worry free for me (and Peter too!) as possible. Everything was perfect and beyond what I was imagining. My most sincerest thanks and appreciation.

Sincerely, Carly

Thank you for a wonderful evening. Our wedding reception at the Pond House exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We received so many complimentary remarks about the food, the venue, the service, everything.  Several of our friends are real foodies and they raved about everything. Here are a few comments we that evening and the following day:

“the Pond House was a class act”
“It was magical”
“Top Notch”
“the filet melted in your mouth”
“appetizers were excellent”

You were so accommodating with special requests like the candy bar, the second cake, special meal requests, and continued email communication leading up to the event. Your personal coordination and attention to every detail over the course of the evening insured everything went off without a hitch. We were so appreciative of the efforts of you and your staff. We will be sure to recommend the Pond House to anyone we know who is looking for a function venue.

All the best. Mike and Mary

Dear Diana:

How do you thank someone who’s given you a perfect day?  Our vow renewal reception was even better than I could have imagined. From the first day we met to talk about our plans you understood exactly what we wanted. Your attention to detail was wonderful  You kept in touch and made sure that our reception was EXACTLY what we wanted. Right up to the day you kept track of everything and took all the pressure off of planning so that we could just enjoy our special day.

The food was amazing, the tables set beautifully and the venue itself was a knock out. The event  staff and the servers couldn’t have been nicer. They were so professional and experienced.. More than once that day ,the event manager set thing sup for us before I even realized we needed it. Nothing we asked  for was too much trouble..My 45 year old nephew is a professional event coordinator from Dallas. He was really impressed with everything and said he’d rarely seen your level of service outside of venues like the Ritz Carlton.

When the guests got a taste of the special Lemon Cream -Mascarpone Cake that your pastry chef made for us they literally swooned .WoW! Please tell Lynn that we think it’s the best cake we’ve ever had and that’s saying something since we’re real cake connoisseurs..

Joan Dylan a preferred provider for Pond House events  was  our DJ and . Her kindness and expertise programming our music  provided a wonderful background that gave the day heart and wings.

Thanks  Diana,  and please thank the staff for a perfect day.  I’m sending along a picture and hope you can see the joy you  and the staff gave to us..

Best Always, Pinny and Alex

Hi Susan – I am writing to thank you for a perfectly executed graduation party on Sunday. You helped to make it a perfect day for my daughter Sarah (and the wonderful weather didn’t hurt!) The food was delicious, with lovely presentations, and the staff was great. And when you were gone I could barely tell that anyone had been working in my kitchen! What a treat!

I look forward to working with you again.

Best, Barri

HI Diana, Susan, Joel and all the others,

We just wanted to say what a FABULOUS time we had last night.  The room looked lovely.  The set up was beautiful.  Joel did a great job at the bar and all of the other servers were friendly and professional just like we had hoped for.  The food was delicious and the coffee and dessert service was spot on.  Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and we just wanted to passon to upper management our kudos for a job very well done.

Thanks again Diana and Susan for your time spent with us in making this another successful event!!!!!


Erin, Lisa, Adam, & Todd,

Joe and I want to thank you and the ENTIRE staff at Pond House for an absolutely wonderful wedding day! I could not have imagined anything more beautiful, magical, or fun.  It was all I had dreamed of and then some. Special thanks to Erin–you were an absolute doll throughout the evening…so attentive and caring.  And all of you were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.  You guys make a stressful event seem effortless.

We celebrated our daughter’s college graduation this past Saturday afternoon with lunch at the Pond House. I just wanted to say thank you for yet another wonderful visit. This is by far one of my favorite locations for not just one but many reasons. You did not disappoint on any level including the nesting duck on the planter! Thanks again and please pass this on to the staff and
