Sales Manager leaves something to be desired ...

Before I begin, I'd just like to say that the wedding coordinator at The Walper was great. She was very helpful and worked really hard to try and make this work for us. We were going to have our wedding reception at The Walper Hotel, and got to the point of contract signing. We ... View more noticed several inconsistencies between the contract and what we have been told. In hindsight, we can say that this was likely due to the staff we were interacting with being relatively new (I think they had only been there for a month or two). However, we wanted the contract to line up with what we had been promised, but we were met with a lot of resistance for what we thought were fair changes. This process left us a bit uneasy about booking with them, as due to the contract, if signing with less than a year in advance, you must pay the full amount for cancelling (which would have been about $24k). We tried to give them opportunities to show that they weren't rigid and would be willing to work with us, and this is where things went south. The wedding coordinator wanted to work with us, but required approval from her boss, the Sales Manager. When he came in to talk to us, he was abrasive and talked over us the entire time. It wasn't even a real conversation. Safe to say, we didn't book with them. Also, regarding the contract issues, after pointing out the inconsistencies, the entire wedding contract was revised. This means that we were likely one of the first couples to really read the contract and realize that some of the clauses were unfair to the signing couples. This ordeal ruined the wedding planning experience for us. The Sales Manager and Wedding Coordinator had both only been there for a few months each, so maybe these were just growing pains. We just wanted a fair business exchange, and they weren't willing to work with us for that.

We had our wedding there on September 16th and it was phenomenal.

Our reception was in the Walper Social, with Jeff Ward having created us a custom menu that our guests chose from that evening. The food was beyond amazing, just delicious and high quality. The cheesecake was one of the best I've had! We were in the Cellar Room and it was set up exactly how I had hoped! The servers were so on the ball with timing and making sure no one waited for food or drink. Overall, this was just an amazing experience, and I highly recommend them!!
