I really do not have enough words to thank Stacy, Jay, and the team at Straton Hall for making all of my dreams come true. From the first time we met at the loft to saying "goodbye" after our wedding, they truly felt like a family to us. Stacy...
took my vision and went beyond what I could have ever imagined- when I look at my pictures I truly cannot believe that was MY wedding. It was SO BEAUTFUL. All of our guests continue to tell us it was the most beautiful and wonderful wedding they have ever been to and I owe so much of that to Stacy. The food was phenomenal. The design, the rentals, the cake, and oh my LORD the flowers were unbelievable. The staff that day went above and beyond to take care of our guests, it was seamless in the middle of a thunderstorm and nobody would have known. I could go on and on about Straton Hall but all you need to know is if you are getting married in St. Simons or really anywhere- call Stacy Bass.

It seems to me that you will only have a good experience working with Straton Hall Events if you use them to perform your entire wedding planning process. Unfortunately, they were a preferred contracted wedding vendor with my wedding venue. As ...
they were the only vendor with a functional website at the time that I was choosing them, I made them my first selection. I was assured that they were the best in the state, that being said, I feel that I received subpar service because I wasn't one of their all-inclusive wedding brides, but just a client for a smaller project. It was impossibly hard to receive any e-mails and responses from them. I went months without ever hearing from them, and they were not proactive in the least bit in working with me. I supplied as many photos, examples, and descriptions of what I was looking for, however, they repeatedly refused up until the week of my wedding to supply any sort of photographs or confirmation that they "understood" what I wanted. Stacy, the owner, also called my husband, and aggressively and unprofessionally berated him, saying that he had never been so micromanaged before and that we needed to just "trust them to do their job". That being said, the wedding day came, and I had never been so sorely disappointed in my life at my wedding florals. I repeatedly vocalized my concern to the florist and the wedding venue that I was concerned that they didn't truly understand my vision of what I wanted and what they were going to do on the day of if they did not deliver. Well, it turns out, they didn't deliver what I had asked for, not even close, and nothing was done. So now, I will for the rest of my life have wedding photos that I do not want because of the flowers that I never asked for that they told me to just "trust them because I'll love them". The long and short of it is, even thinking back to all of the e-mails and conversations, the flowers don't look anything like the examples I submitted or the descriptions that I provided to them. I wanted them to submit representative examples of everything that I asked, and even then, they said that they took "inspiration" from those photos, and their "inspiration" and "interpretation" wasn't anything that I wanted in the end. It was so shocking to me that we had to have the wedding venue and other vendors that knew them to get involved before they would even respond to any e-mails or messages, and that when they finally did, they thought it was appropriate to speak so rudely to their clients. Overall, a shockingly dismal day.

If you are looking for someone to make your daughters dream wedding come true, Stacy and his team at Straton Hall will make that happen. As we started planning the wedding In July of 2017 I would hear this many times, “no worries, we got this” ...
and they truly did. My favorite day was Thursday before the wedding. Meg and Stacy had sooooo much fun picking out her flowers and making her bouquet and head piece. How many people would climb a tree for the perfect piece of stag horn fern??? Stacy Bass would. I knew Meg and Brad’s day would be magic and IT was. ❤️

There is nothing bad I can say about Stacy and the Straton Hall team! :) They are AWESOME! The first time I met Stacy, I knew I was going to LOVE working with him! He made wedding planning stress free and enjoyable. Every time we met with them,...
he made me feel at ease and helped in the decision making process (which I tend to struggle with).
We used Straton Hall for the rehearsal dinner, flowers, catering for the wedding, venue/wedding decor, and the bride's cake. I gave him very basic descriptions on how I wanted my flowers to look and they turned out amazing. The colors were beautiful together and everyone keeps talking about them! The food was great for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. The appetizers during cocktail hour were a huge hit! Our destination wedding was a huge success and a party we will never forget! You can't go wrong choosing Straton Hall Events!

I will say that this made me nervous in the planning process, but once I saw the outcome I can say that he most certainly is paying attention to what you want.
**I will also note that the majority of our planning happened right after Hurricane Irma hit Georgia, so this may have had an affect on Stratons Halls catching up on missed work.

raton. His proactive nature, unparalleled attention to detail, genuine caring and FUN personality made the planning enjoyable. We hired them for the design and rentals, FOOD, cake, FLOWERS... They took care of it all! Even though I emailed him numerous times with questions and changes, he promptly got back to me with suggestions and solid solutions. We chose the Historic City Hall in downtown Brunswick for both the ceremony AND reception. I fell in love with all of the wood and marble, the romantic feel of the place. I was very pleased with Jay's flexibility and creativity with our menu. We had a Tasting that Jay made so fun, especially for my fiancé. The menu was fresh, in season and as local as possible. I talked with Stacy and Lulu about flowers and that I wanted mostly greenery, succulents, and candles and that's exactly what we got, PLUS. There were CANDLES everywhere, along both sides of the aisle and at the front, even floating in big glass containers. There were soft purple flowers, delicate blush ones, different shades of succulents, and huge flowers called African Proteas. Gorgeous! Carla Pryor of St Simons Elopements was our officiant and she was awesome! Things went so smoothly and her words were very meaningful and perfect for us as a couple. After the ceremony, guests were asked to go downstairs for cocktails. Drinks were passed and there was a beautiful display of domestic and imported cheeses accented with flatbreads along with seasonal melons, garden fresh berries paired with fresh cream for dipping. We had a lot of moving pieces the day of the wedding and everything went off without a hitch. Jay and bartender Margo even brought us drinks and reminded us to eat. While we were mingling downstairs, the Straton team had obviously been busy upstairs. Dividing walls had been opened up and the now huge space had been turned into our reception. Tables with flowers, greenery garlands, CANDLES and food stations. The main ones had tender Chicken breasts with creamy sauce and Mushrooms, and a nice garden selection of grilled and roasted Vegetables. The Deluxe Mac and Cheese Station drew a crowd! It included what they called Delilah's Mac (a Southern seven cheese wonder!) and White Mac (Monterey Jack, White Cheddar, Mozzarella and Gruyere gooey goodness!) that you could then top with your choice of Pesto Chicken, Oven Roasted Tomatoes, Pulled Pork, Chives, Jambalaya Sauce, Bacon Bits, Andouille Sausage and Roasted Baby Sweet Peppers. Definitely DELUXE! Jay suggested Coastal Shrimp and Grits, one of Straton's signature recipes. Turned out to be THE culinary hit of the evening paired with a combination of Andouille Sausage Cream and stone ground Grits. We had so many compliments about the food that night, and our family and friends are STILL raving about how delicious everything was! The cake looked just like the photo Jay had shown his pastry chef. And tasted divine, LEMON! At the end of the evening, Stacy escorted us downstairs where our guests were waving sparklers and a sleek 1940s Cadillac was waiting for us. Mr. Martin, our chauffeur, was so kind! Another referral from Straton, Martin's Wedding Transportation. Thank you so much Straton Hall Events for making our special day perfect!

for cocktail hour and through the entire reception (5 hours), then a month to go before the wedding Stacy Bass (owner) changed it to only being there for 2 hours because we were using another vendor for plates (because he only ever told me that he had gold rimmed plates, which did not match the theme for the wedding). He refused to touch the plates from the other vendor or serve my cake because it was purchased from another vendor. It caused so many headaches, including me almost having to use my family to cut/serve the cake and wash the dishes at the end of the night. I'm sure if you want to use Straton Hall for everything (food, drinks, cake, dishes, silverware, etc) it would be fine but the second you add another vendor to the event he will screw you over.
