Sometimes, something so perfect comes around and you have to tell the world

I was lucky enough to coordinate a wedding this past weekend at a venue I was familiar with but never had the pleasure to actually work in. The Bernards Inn in Bernardsville.

Generally, after working every weekend at banquet facilities, I am rather difficult to impress when it comes to locations. I'm critical of the ambiance, the food and the general service. But the exemplary customer service both Lauren and Tracey (the events staff) exhibited, the quality of their food and their bartenders (nobody speaks enough about the fact that having a knowledgeable bartender to make good drinks is important), the impeccable and beautiful decor of the guest rooms and the event spaces and the mastery of their cake art (because it is an art form) has made me a cheerleader for the inn. Although this is the first time I have worked there I hope that I and my team at Colorblind Productions will get to work there more often in the future.

The staff genuinely enjoys working there. That always speaks volumes to me. Because I'm a vendor, not so much a guest, I have the opportunity of seeing the behind the scenes and I will say that I'm impressed. I liked it so much that on Monday I came back with Rob to have our 6 year anniversary lunch there. I can both vouch for the food at weddings and the restaurant, which is particularly amazing. I cannot say enough about this place.

Special acknowledgment goes to Tracey Mancini and Lauren Montemarano. These two ladies go far above and beyond to ensure the comfort level of the guests and especially the guests of honor. It was an extreme pleasure to have worked alongside them both. Those who choose the Bernards Inn for their events are lucky to have both of them ensure that their event is perfection.

I'll have more pictures to follow of the wedding there as well as all my weddings from the insanely popular Columbus Day wedding weekend to come but had to take this time to really give credit where credit is due.
