Robin at Cape Rey was our wedding coordinator - she went ABOVE and BEYOND what we had expected! She always took time to meet with us at the venue leading up to the wedding whenever we had questions or concerns, was always available by phone or ...
email, and had amazing ideas to help us through the process. Everything was explained perfectly, and she was extremely laid back, which made my husband and I stay calm (which we really needed!) A few weeks before the wedding, we realized that our guest count was too high for the smaller ballroom that we had originally booked for the reception. Not only was the larger ballroom available (thank goodness), but Robin sent us different layouts/plans for how she could set up the room, and made sure there was 0 hassle in switching our booking from the smaller room to the larger room. We did have some hiccups the day of the wedding, and if it weren't for Robin, we don't know how it would have ended up. 2 hours before the ceremony, we received word that our officiant (a family member), was no longer coming. My Maid of Honor called down to the front desk, who alerted Robin of the situation, and she had an extremely professional officiant there within an hour! He was super polite, was in a suit and tie, and took our ceremony that we had written and performed it perfectly. Check out Eric at www.muzziievents.com if you need an officiant, or any other event services! Here's another issue we had: between the rehearsal, family dinners, and craziness surrounding the wedding, we never had time to print out our place cards/seating chart for dinner. Not only did Robin take care of this for us last minute, she went the extra mile to include our "Old Hollywood" theme on the seating chart! She made everything run smoothly, made sure everyone knew where to go and what to do, and was SO kind and understanding of our day-of stress. She truly did everything and MORE to make our day run flawlessly.
More props to Cape Rey - people FREAKED OUT over the food! What an amazing menu! The short ribs with mashed potatoes were raved about by everyone who had them. It took my husband and I weeks to pick out a menu because it was all so amazing! The tasting before the wedding was great, and so much fun, too. The staff all really make you feel at home, and are so warm, friendly and helpful.
The ONLY thing we weren't totally happy with had nothing to do with the wedding, but with the room we were in: the night of the wedding, my bridal party called the front desk to ask them to tidy up our room before we got back to it (my bridal party and I stayed there the night before, so the trash cans were full, bed had been slept in, etc.)...they even left a tip on the bed for whoever came to tidy it up. Unfortunately, no one came, so we came back to a messy room after the wedding, and saw the tip still on the bed.
Other than that...I highly recommend the venue, restaurant, and ROBIN! I feel like there is so much more to rave about, but it would take me hours to type it all out :)
