What our customers say
Thank you so much. The day was so amazing and everything was just perfect. We would not have been able to do any of it without the help of you and all the staff at the duke. Before I started planning I had no idea what I was doing and thank goodness for you because I would have been so lost. We had multiple guests tell us that it is the best wedding they have been to and how much fun they had and how amazing the food was. We will definitely be back for many more anniversaries to come :) With love Hayley & Michael
