Where do I start. Our Wedding had been Canceled due to covid two days before our big day. My Wife decided we still wanted to elope with a small amount of family and close friends. Our Family and friends were already supposed to be staying at the Wyndham Garden in York. We contacted Mary Ann on Thursday morning and asked if we could elope there in the ball room. She said absolutely! And immediately jumped to help get things in order. From getting the ballroom prepared, to Food, Dessert and even helping us set up a bartender for the day. We did a full walk through with her the day before. She Helped our family set up the room on Friday night. She was the first person to greet us on Saturday morning to kick things off and stayed throughout the whole process to ensure things went smoothly. She went above and beyond and made our wedding day truly special. It was beautiful and intimate. Something we did not expect to receive with such short notice. the Service was above and beyond and we truly recommend the Wyndham for any future needs especially Mary Ann and Lisa!

- Above and Beyond, Service that needs recognized!

Thanks so much for helping us host a wonderful party!  Everyone had such a great time!  The staff and accommodations were exceptional!  I have attached a couple pictures for you since you were not able to be at the event.  I hope you had a wonderful time at your daughter’s wedding!

Have a great summer!
