Wedding Reviews

We are SO grateful to Andrea, Stacey and all the amazing staff who made our wedding rehearsal & dinner, ceremony and reception truly magical and flawless! I felt so at ease every step of the way because of their personal touch, professionalism and attention to every detail. We couldn't be more thrilled we chose to have our wedding at The Reserve at Spanos Park. The food was phenomenal. So many of our guests have commented on the amazing meal, the extraordinary service and staff who took such great care of us and the gorgeous first tee lakeside venue for our ceremony. Andrea, I will never forget the special 'bride-mobile' you created so the guests and my soon to be husband wouldn't catch a glimpse of me before the ceremony. So many treasured memories.. You will always hold a very special place in our hearts.. Thank you! ❤️Mike & CamC. Werthman

I just want to thank you for the services at our Alumni Banquet. It was a great success and the place looked amazing when we arrived. The Reserve is hands down one of the nicest places we have been to host our annual Alumni Banquet and we would definitely recommend The Reserve for future banquets. Thank you and look forward to working with you again in the future.M. Yap

Not only was everything done amazingly well, but with a personal touch from you and all of the staff at “The Reserve.” You were always available and responded kindly to my multitude of requests. I felt you truly cared in in this day and age that is a rarity. Thanks so much for making this a wonderful stress-free event for all of us!R. Malandro

Last night went perfectly! Your staff took all the stress out of the evening for the "organizer." I walked in and just breathed a sigh of relief. It was a huge crowd and everyone got fed quickly, and it looked just beautiful! Thank you so much, we will definitely book again next year!E. Wolfe

I just wanted to 'Thank you' for the lovely bridal shower event for my niece on the Lakeside Patio. The setup and arrangements for the tables were beautiful and the food was delicious. Also, the servers were great, friendly and attentive to our needs. So glad the weather was nice and we got some great pics :) We will definitely return for any future events! Thanks again.C. Millier
