    Best decision made for wedding!

    Courtyard was an amazing venue for our wedding. Starting with Julia Johnston, who made our lives easier and helped the wedding run smoothly. The food was delicious and the ambience perfect! We couldn't ask for a more beautiful, fun day! Thank you!

    Cynthia, the event planner at Courtyard, is so amazing at her job. She's extremely diligent and thinks of every little thing and helps you through it. The restaurant itself is a beautiful location and the food is to die for.

    So Beautiful!

    I had been dreaming about this venue for years. It didn't disappoint. It's so beautiful with even the most basic decor. Especially in the winter which is when we had our wedding!
    There had been a change in event planners throughout our time planning and the transition was smooth. They were also very accommodating when we had a major change in guest count and found the perfect solution for us. As for the food, everyone was impressed. It all was amazing, especially the apps. I could have eaten those all night! The drink menu was another thing of beauty. The cocktails were unique and some gents made there way through the entire craft beer menu.
    It was a very relaxing night which is hard to achieve for a wedding. Thank you Courtyard team!

    It was a really nice place. My people and I were really charmed by the service. For people like me who like contemporain place or private one. I recommend it. Thanks to Cynthia V. for coordinating the day so well.
