My husband and I got married here 3 days ago on 5/15/14. We also stayed overnight in the Rainforest Room. We did a very small 6 person wedding & it was such a beautiful & stress-free experience. Connie was amazing from day one! She emailed the day after we reserved the Rainforest Room to ask our breakfast preferences! The beauty of the grounds, the wedding decorations, fresh flowers, string lights, tie back chair covers, arranged seating under the covered patio area, stained glass waterfall & cake table were all so elegant. Connie was extremely attentive to our group without being intrusive. The size of the cake & the amount of champagne was generous. Connie even took a group photo of all of us. When we returned from having lunch elsewhere, our cake was waiting on the little table in the room and my bouquet was placed in a vase with water. The suite looked exactly like it did in pics from the website plus there was an A/C window unit in each room which made it very comfortable. The whale tub was glorious, the breakfast was delicious and elegant - I'm talking orange juice in champagne flutes and tea light candles on the table. Connie is knowledgable about what to do in Galveston & its rich history. This is a super quiet location, very private feeling. We loved having our own patio & the shower big enough for 2, not to mention those yummy chocolate chip cookies waiting for us in the room when we first arrived. We were, and are still, absolutely blown away.
