  • Lisa,

    We’re still in awe at how amazing our wedding weekend was. We can’t thank you enough for being there with us through the journey from our engagement to marriage. There were definitely some stressful encounters along the way, but you gave us so much support and confidence that the day would run seamlessly, and it did.
    I really hope we stay in touch, it was so great getting to know you and I already miss our conversations! Let us know if you are ever in the Bay Area and we’ll let you know when we’re down in PS. Maybe we will set up an appointment to tour the ODH as a newly engaged couple so we can hang out with you again ?. Just kidding!! Anyways, all the best. Miss you!

  • I wanted to say thanks to you both for your involvement in our wedding this past Sunday. I can’t count how many times people have come up to us and said how magical of a place The O’Donnell House is, and how wonderful everything was throughout the evening. High marks to you and everyone else that helped out, including all the vendors. Thanks so much – we had a wonderful time. Thanks again you two!

    I know this card is very delayed but we really want you to know how thankful we are for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. You were great to work with and made our lives very easy. We also thought this card was very appropriate to remind you of the world’s biggest donut board! Thank you again, and we hope to see you at STR when we come back every year for our anniversary!

    Love,

  • Hi Lisa –

    I really cannot thank you enough for everything this weekend and the months leading up to it. The wedding was perfect and exactly what we wanted, and the night flowed SO smoothly and easily. We got compliment after compliment from the guests about the venue and how great the party was, and so much of that comes down to you and your team who facilitated everything so beautifully and just allowed us to have fun.

    Thank you for being so easy to work with! I’m a little sad that it’s over now, but Dave and I had an amazing night that we will remember forever.
    All the best,

    Laura
