Just want to say thank you for everything that you have done for me and my husband and family. Your service and hospitality was truly a blessing to us.❤️❤️

- Great Rehearsal Dinner

We were very pleased with how Wyndham Gardens and especially Mary Ann Fisher handled my daughter’s wedding. They went above and beyond with the details surrounding the big event. During this time with covid, we had to change the date.
The Crystal Ballroom looked beautiful and classy. The staff was courteous and friendly. The food was phenomenal. So many people came up to me and told how much they enjoyed their meal.
We had a few vegetarians attending and they all loved their meals. I was grateful for that.
My daughter and son-in-law had a fabulous and memorable time that night. Everything went as planned. I would definitely book another event here.
