Im so excited to post a review about our wonderful, amazing wedding in November 2010 at the Pillar and Post. If you are looking for your perfect venue and are considering ANY of the Vintage hotels look no further they are all amazing! Ive posted about the Wedding Day and Other details leading up for anyone who is interested, I hope this review helps you make your decision.
The wedding itself was pure magic, we truly couldnt have asked for ANYTHING more! Savanna and all the staff at the Pillar and Post went beyond above and beyond to make our day memorable, Our wedding was in the Gallery at the Pillar and Post a stunning room with exposed brick and beam, with windows allowing the sunshine to stream through. We did family photographs in the lobby a beautiful setting. Our reception was in the Upper Canada Hall, an exquisite room with beautiful wood featured walls, mirrors and windows giving an Old world charm like no other. When we walked in for our "sneak Peak" before our guests arrived we were blown away and completely speachless our dreams had come to life it was stunning. Savanna was by our side the whole night to ensure everything went exactley as we wanted, queing our Emcee, DJ, servers and all, again whe is amazing, any bride would be lucky to have her support.
All the OTHER DETAILS
Our journey began with a meeting with their Sales Manager Stephanie, who is a wonderful lady, she walked us through all the properties...sparkling wine in hand, telling us all about the features and ammenities we would have available to us. The whole process was enjoyable relaxing and definatley sold us immediatley on the hotel family.
Our next meetings were via email with the Sales and events teams, it seemed that no amount of questions, emails or phone calls were too much, they always responded quickly to whatever was needed,
We met our wedding coordinator Savanna who is incredible! There is nothing she wont make happen for her brides and grooms! She helped us through the planning process, made suggestions for the flow of the night, wines, food (she even set up a time for us to meet with the Chef t0 customize our menu!!!) everything! She was like the other bridesmaid in our wedding.
The staff at the Pillar and Post are truly incredible!!! From the moment you walk in you are welcomed 'home' into their amazing properties the front desk staff are fantastic. For our wedding each guest was to recieve a special gift when they were handed their keys and everyone recieved this without any problems, great wat to kick off their stay. The restaurant staff and their service are like nothing else, professional, courteous and very helpful.
Savanna greeted us when we arrived to check in for the wedding weekend to make any decor items bombineres etc etc so that ot was off our plates, we knew she woud take care of it all and she did!
They opened up the Chicago room for the groom and the guys to hang out and play pool while all the gals got their nails done, which was an amazing touch.
We had our rehearsal at the hotel on the Friday night and Sanavva was there with us the whole time, she walked everyone through all the details.. Moms, Dads, Kids , sisters everyone until we got it right and were comfortable.
The morning of the wedding we had use of one of the large rooms for the girls to get ready the guys got dressed and ready in our suite. The hairdresser make up gals wedding party and family hung out in the room all morning and afternoon, Savanna popped in to check on us all making sure things were going well, we got updates when the florist arrived and everything.
Savanna was there to take the guys and girls to the ceremony room and get us ready for the big event. She fliffed by gown just before i walked down the aisle, when the ceremony was over she directed guests where they should go. When we arrived back at the hotel after our photos she took us up to our room where there was saprkling wine and the assortment of appetizers that our guests had recieved during the cocktail hour for us to try. She snuck us into the Upper Canada hall for a sneak peak and organized our big entrance. Throughout the evening she was always there in the background ensuring everything went off without a hitch..and it did!!!
I can not say enough that hosting our wedding at the Pillar and Post was the BEST decision we ever made, our guests still talk about our wedding as the best wedding they have ever been to, food, ambiance everything. We look forward to celebrating our next 100 anniversaries at the Pillar and Post.
