We wanted to thank you and your staff for all of your efforts to make our wedding day such a wonderful day. We appreciate all of your attention and Mark's attention throughout the planning process. The Conference & Event Center is a beautiful space and we feel fortunate to have been one of the first couples to celebrate our wedding there! We wish you much continued success tehre. We enjoyed the entrie day so much and only regret that my father was not there with us. I do believe he would have been so proud to have seen our family and friends treated so well! Thank you.

I wanted to thank you and your staff for the outstanding job that you did to orchestrate Sarah & Don's wedding last week. It is evident everyone works very hard to please your clients and guests. The new facility is phenomenal. I know your guests felt very special. I loved how shiny the dishes, glasses, and silverware were. I know Joe would have felt very proud to have had his daughter's wedding at Alexandria's.
It is evident you work very hard at what you do. You do honor to the groundwork your father has laid and continues to expand. You have developed the skills necessary to make this all flow so seamlessly. But I know it takes so much time and effort on your part to make it happen.
I can't say enough about your chef, Mark. He has shown that he has the talent, patience, and flexibility to plan and prepare outstanding food for hundreds of guests at once. So many guests commented how absolutely delicious the food was. "This was gourmet food," someone mentioned to me. I thank him for the orchids on the plates. My husband, Joe, grew orchids. It was a touch that warmed my heart and all of us knew him. You all work hard, put your client's needs first, and make everyone feel special! You will continue to be very successful.

The beauty of your new Conference Center was matched by the smiles and helpfulness of your staff. Two of your servers opened the doors and greeted us warmly when we came in - a personal welcome that let us know we were about to experience a very special evening. Having pictures of Sarah and Don scattered through the lobby made us feel like we were entering their home. We enjoyed the television screen with their photos too. The service seemed seemless throughout the evening even though you had just recently opened. I entertain a lot and have had up to 200 for at home parties so I can appreciate all the unseen details that make a great wedding. A framed duck drawing hangs in my kitchen with this quote:
"The good hostess is like a duck,
serene, calm and unruffled on the surface,
but paddling like hell underneath"
Enclosed is a mini sewing kit for you to have on hand (I opened one end to add additional safety pins). The connecting piece to Sarah’s bustle snapped and we were able to replace it with a large safety pin, hidden underneath the waist. At another wedding, the bride's mom stepped on the wedding gown ripping part of the back and train off as they exited the church. I put the gown back together as she stood in the receiving line with safety pins, needle, and thread. When I asked about needs/thread, your staff graciously checked, but didn't find any. Now you really will have thought of everything.
Having worked in residential construction as well as building my own home and helping design the chemistry section of the new OHS science wing, I know how difficult it is to get everything in working order by the opening date. We were without hot water for months in the new science wing because two valves that didn’t appear on the drawings were left closed. I wanted you to know that both restrooms (women and men) were unbearably hot Saturday evening. There didn't seem to be any moving air or air conditioning in the restrooms. You may already know this, but I wanted to make sure because several women, including me, almost passed out from the heat in the rest room.
It may be a design choice that no hooks were in the bathroom stalls. Although the floors were sparkling clean, many women prefer to use a hook rather than the floor especially in Oswego Winters. Hooks are also helpful to hang jackets, evening coats, etc.
George & I look forward to our next visit to Alexandria's/Conference Center.
I want to thank you for helping Shannon and Paul have such a wonderful wedding reception at your beautiful facility, Alexandria's. Every single detail was expertly attended to, from the food and beverages made available in the pre-wedding room, to the margaritas that were delivered to the bride and groom as they greeted guests in the receiving line! The entire wedding party was also provided with food and drink throughout the day. Every employee we came into contact with was polite and knew exactly what to do to make the day go smoothly. All of the extra special touches you provided for Shannon and Paul were so very appreciated! I wish I had thought to do them for my daughter and her new husband!
Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and attention to details.

I want to thank you for making our daughter's wedding so "Beautiful"!! Everything was just great! The venue is picturesque, so gorgeous! You were the Best! Always there when we needed you, all the crazy texts, you answered right away. All of our guests were blown away by how beautiful it is there. Thank you again, it couldn't have been better!

Aaron and I wanted to thank you for your flexibility and generosity throughout our wedding planning. We certainly knew that planning our wedding would be a process, but it was much more stress-free with you there to guide us. You went above and beyond our expectations when we chose our wedding venue, and we appreciate the time you devoted to making our wedding day one we will never forget!
Thank you so much!
