    Excellent help with planning

    Dennette was exceptional in making me and Janice feel at ease, explain how the wedding is expected to proceed. She was very punctual in sending out contracts.

    Amazing venue!!!

    This is such a hidden gem!

    1. It comes with table cloths, menus etc.
    2. There is no room rental (for a goregous room) as long as you meet a reasonable room rental fee.
    3. The food and drink is incredible. Guests complimented the food constantly.
    4. There was a beautiful bridal suite. It let in lots of natural light and there was a wall of greenery. It made for goregous pictures.
    5. Bridal suite plus two private rooms. There was a traditional ceremony set up . There was a separate space for cocktail hour/mingling. During the cocktail hour the staff efficently set up our wedding meal time.
    6. Flexible bar choices (we chose to have wine and beer and soft drinks). Multiple menu choices for every course of the meal.
    7. A lift for guests with mobility concerns.

    Hi Christy,

    Thank you and Natalie so much for the wonderful and kind words! I will be sure to share with all who helped to make your wedding so special. And, so sorry I was not able to witness your wedding - you look stunning!

    And, what a great move in changing the wedding date - whew.

    Crazy times right now Christy and hope you, Natalie and your family & friends are well.

    Take care and please do not be strangers as this will end at some point.

    Better than we could have dreamed

    Everything about Sassafraz was perfect. They were flexible as we planned our wedding from South Korea. They days leading up to the wedding were perfect. We had easy access to the rooms to set up the day before. The day of, Jeff was the most amazing host for us. Everything I could think of, he had already done. They plated our Cinnabons with extra personalized decor on the plates. Everything was perfect and the food was amazing!

    Perfect, Intimate Wedding

    I would like to start off by saying that we had THE most perfect wedding at Sassafraz. The level of service we received on our day was exceptional. The staff was kind, attentive, quick, patient and felt like they wanted to be there rather than having to be there. The food was the talk of our wedding, the quality of the meals was very high. The venue is beautiful on its own, and we felt it was spacious yet intimate.

    I was never worried about anything and the Dennette was an absolute pleasure to work with. Very organized and answered all my questions and concerns, no detail was too small for her. The fact that I never was aware of small hiccups that happened and everything was taken care so seamlessly. I highly recommend this venue for a wedding!
