WEDDING AT THE OPERA HOUSE!!” Trip Advisor, March 10, 2014  

My son had his wedding upstairs in The Opera House!!! It was Beautiful!!! The staff did an awesome job not just for the wedding and the reception but downstairs staff were very friendly and helped us with any questions we had. The food was amazing as well! I just can not say enough nice things about this place, they took care of all the little details and even packed the couple a goody bag to take with them. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!!!!

I KNEW WE WERE IN GOOD HANDS - Our family “worked” with Cristina Lesperance as the event coordinator for our daughter’s wedding. You know you have found the right person when, after meeting her for the first time, both the bride and the groom state that they feel that she “will take care of us because she cares ” And care she does!

Everyone asked me, the mother of the bride, if I was “stressed out”, and I honestly had to tell them “no.” I knew we were in good hands. Cristina is kind and gentle. She is one of the hardest workers I have ever met. Her work ethic cannot be surpassed., nor can her compassion. She was realistic, honest, and a friend to us. She treats her staff as though they are family, yet makes sure that every detail is completed and accounted for. She has a creative mind, and isn’t afraid to “throw out” suggestions. And she listens….she listened to what we had in mind….and she made it happen.

I will be calling on her for all future events, I have no doubt of that!  We were so lucky to have found Cristina, and even luckier to have worked with her. -SSP 6/1/2013

AMAZING WEDDING RECEPTION! - "I've been meaning to send an email telling what a great job Cristina did! She was amazing! She made sure that I was taken care of the whole night, which was a great help to me, having my daughter there with me. I couldn't have imagined having my reception anywhere else! My only regret is that we didn't have the ceremony there, too! It was amazing! A night I will never forget!" - Jennifer Collins

An amazing Wedding!...I just wanted to extend my thanks to you and your staff for everything you did to make John and I’s wedding an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime event. It was so nice to be nearly worry-free on the day of our wedding; you did an excellent job of taking the worries off our hands and making sure every detail was perfect by the time guests arrived.

"Had a wonderful time up at the Opera House..The staff was perfect in every way and everything went off without a hitch!! Love that Christina. I hope to have other events there and will recommend you to anyone and everyone. Thanks again, Delores "

"We are planning our High School Reunion and I wanted to say that Christina has done a fabulous job. You can tell she loves what she does and she is very thorough and has many great ideas. She has been very helpful and we are so happy to have decided on the Opera House for this occasion . Thanks to all at the Great Outdoors Restaurant for all the focus on all the small details we will recommend this to all of our following alumni."

The Great Outdoors did a wonderful job with the food – we have gotten raves from almost every guest we’ve talked to since saying the food was the best food they’d ever eaten at a wedding, and one or two said it was in the running for best food they’d ever eaten, period! The centerpieces and tables looked amazing; you really do have a talent for lighting and setting a romantic old-timey mood in there, especially with the sparkling Christmas decorations (our presents under the tree idea was a major hit!).

The wait staff was so helpful, from helping our Best Man with the microphone to cutting and serving the cake quickly to procuring last-minute champagne in a jiff. Everyone was just enchanted by the Opera House...we’ve literally gotten personal e-mails from several family members saying that it was a perfect wedding, because of the Opera House in combination with the Baughman Center, both stunning locations.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were. Even the price was just unbeatable, although the one thing we might have changed is giving our guests such good notice of when the bar would close, because some took major advantage of that courtesy! I know, you tried to warn us :) And it was completely made up for by not having extensive bartender charges, not charging us for the champagne toast, not charging us for cake cutting, not needing a wedding planner because of all your hard work, etc., which other locations certainly do not do for their clients. I would recommend the Opera House to anyone having ANY kind of event in the area, hands down.
