Our daughter, Kasey got married on this Memorial Day weekend, and everything could not have been more perfectly executed than by Guy & Maria! We had booked the Davenport a year & a half ago under the former manager, Joe Rossi--& we gave him a deposit for the contract that we... Read More had agreed upon. Guy took over about 5 mos ago, & contacted Kasey to assure her he would honor that contract. Both he & Maria were responsive to calls & emails--easy to talk with & so reasonable to work with. Guy completely renovated the interior--it looks even more beautiful being so updated now! The food was beyond exceptional! Maria made sure everyone knew where to be at the right times . . . and both she & Guy checked on us throughout the night, making sure we felt things were going well! They personally knew our names, those of the groom's parents, and the maid of honor & best man. The grounds were impeccable, and our guests still cannot get over the view! I'll be honest & say I was a bit worried about the change of hands before the wedding, but Guy & Maria made sure this was a dream come true! Almost wish we had another daughter--we would have her wedding exactly like Kasey & Derek's turned out to be! Kudos & many thanks to this new team!
