"Dear Suzanne, Thank you for making our wedding perfect. Small, intimate, and on the beach - just what we wanted. Everyone enjoyed the champagne toast and the hors d'oeuvres were delicious. We have decided to spend our anniversary with you every year!"
~ Mia and Harold...South Bend, IN

"Being a second marriage for both of us, we just wanted to share it with family and friends. We are so glad we chose the Carriage House. You and David were the perfect host and hostess. Everything was perfect. Thanks for going the extra mile- tee times for the guys, massages for the girls and arranging the sailboat. We can't imagine a more beautiful wedding. We'll send pictures of us with the sunset in the background. Thanks again."

From A Happy Couple...

June 2008
Dear Suzanne & David,

How do we even begin to thank you for all you did to make our wedding day (the whole weekend actually) feel like a fairy tale wedding? I could not have imagined a more perfect day… We were actually able to enjoy our wedding day because you took care of everything!

The service we received from both you and your staff went way beyond our expectations… We received compliment after compliment from every one of our family members about what a wonderful and unique experience it was.

…All the meals received rave reviews from our family. Everyone was impressed not only with the exceptional quality of the meals, but also the charming presentation. I loved the pansies on the dessert plates – what a creative and lovely touch. I still can’t believe you went to all the trouble to make homemade canoli’s, in order to fulfill my special request…

Suzanne, your meticulous attention to detail simply amazes me. Everything about the house was perfect in every way ….- We can never thank you enough, not only for graciously sharing your beautiful home with us, but above all for bestowing all of us with treasured memories of our special day.

Sincerely yours,
Gregory and Nancy Shanahan
Rochester, Michigan
