French’s Point is lucky enough to have been awarded WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice venue in 2014! We are beyond thrilled at the honor, and have only our beautiful brides and grooms to thank. In this new blog series, we’ll be posting some of the reviews from both WeddingWire as well as The Knot to give future couples a sense of what we at French’s Point can offer for your upcoming celebration.

Wedding Date: August 10, 2012

From the Bride: “My husband and I looked at a variety of places but nothing compared to French’s Point. They’ve really done a great job at offering a place where you can come with your loved ones to celebrate your big day in privacy, comfort, and elegance without being too over the top (unless you want that!). Some venues offered these traits, but not all.

I met with Jess and Sarah throughout the year multiple times to make sure everything I was doing and they were doing was on track. They made some wonderful recommendations as far as vendors. Meeting with them was helpful because I’ve never planned a wedding before—I was overwhelmed not by what I had to do… but by not “knowing” what I had to do. They lowered my stress levels by providing a detailed document to fill out and help them and myself keep track of upcoming to-dos. I had about four meetings with them throughout the year to make sure we were on schedule. A few weeks before we made a detailed itinerary down to the minute on how the day would go and where my husband and I would have to be and with who. (Be at the church at this time, be at FP by this time for photos, cake cutting, first dance, etc)

I wasn’t nervous one bit on our wedding day. My family kept commenting on how it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had been too. Everything went off without a hitch too! Sarah even made sure my busted polaroid camera was fixed ASAP and took the liberty of taking the photos herself to make sure everyone was covered 🙂 (I found out about this after the wedding and was SO thankful. No other vendor would have taken this extra step).

The FP staff ended up being more like our family. Our family and friends all had their own little stories to tell about how nice someone was or how helpful they were. It made me happy to know I could trust them 100%.

I still have friends and family asking if we could get married every year because they loved our wedding so much. I think that is the biggest compliment FP could get!”
