Congratulations to Anneliese and Nate on their recent marriage! This lovely couple had a beautiful wedding at Silver Creek Event Center at Four Winds Casino New Buffalo on June 22, 2014 with 200 guests. We spoke with the Mother of the Bride on why they choose Silver Creek Event Center at Four Winds Casinos for their wedding venue and this was her response:
“Initially when we began looking for a venue for Anneliese and Nate’s wedding, we knew we needed a space that would hold around 200 people. After we visited the Silver Creek Event Center and met with you, our decision was made. Not only was the space beyond compare, but the options available to us were endless. These options were not limited to just the menu but also included the wedding timeline, use of the facilities and technical equipment. The fact that all this was provided at a fixed price made budgeting for the big day easier.
While the entire day was memorable, my two favorites would have to be when our daughter came down the aisle. The in-the-round setting was spectacular. When the bride and groom stepped up to the rectangular riser, it seemed that they were floating on air. The overall lighting of the room was dramatic and added to the splendor of the ceremony.
My second favorite moment was when the wall from the cocktail space was opened to reveal the ballroom. At first, our guests were amazed with the cocktail hour; the bountiful array of appetizers and the made-to-order pasta, the magnificence of the ice sculpture and the expanse of the bar area and cocktail selections. Then, after the cutting of the cake which was served as dessert, the wall opened to expose an ethereal ballroom. Our guests seemed to gasp with delight.
We would like to thank you for the way that you and your staff helped us to plan the wedding, each and every step of the way. Pam let us know when it was time to make decisions and secure every aspect of the entire wedding festivities. The event planner, Michael Angelo’s, who you referred us to, knew the space. This made the flowers, table decorations and ceiling treatment easy to articulate and secure. Your help in creating the space for the ceremony and reception proved invaluable. We always felt that your primary concern was the success of their wedding day. For that, we would give you a 10.
Having the rehearsal dinner at Hard Rock Cafe was a great choice. The upstairs area provided an intimate setting for family and friends. Having the rehearsal dinner on site allowed our out-of-town guests to be part of the celebration. The food was plentiful and tasty and the service was great. This, however, was just a foretaste of the food and service on the day of the wedding.
The chef and staff of Four Winds catering are to be commended for their preparation, presentation and wait service. Our two main entrees were steak and salmon. Both were cooked to perfection. The Caesar Salad presentation was delightful as well as the presentation of the wedding cake with the Blue Moon ice cream. The addition of raspberry sauce made the plate look as though it was [a] firework display. The service staff was professional, yet friendly.
Although we returned home after the wedding, many of our guests stayed at Four Winds Hotel. The feedback from friends and family was that the rooms were top notch. Anneliese and Nate felt they were the evening’s royalty with their stay in the wedding suite.
Truly, we would like to thank you for the tremendous job that you did in creating a “Storybook” wedding for our daughter and our new son-in-law. You created memories that will last a lifetime. We can’t wait to share the photographs with you.”
With gratitude and sincere thanks,
Mother of the Bride
