Kristin & Justin’s Review of Villa Siena

November 13th, 2014

_mg_1673-edit

“Hope our wedding coordinator was absolutely fabulous as were the other gals who took over while she was on maternity leave. Before the wedding Hope was always in contact with one of us by phone and email with what was going on . On the day of the wedding Hope kept everything running smoothly, anticipated everything before we could even ask. The evening was so beautiful, we were able to enjoy the evening because we did not have to worry about anything because Hope and her staff took care of everything. Villa Siena’s staff were all friendly, professional, courteous and seem to truly love their jobs. The venue is absolutely beautiful. All if our out of town guest were in awe and had never seen anything like it. I would absolutely recommend Villa Siena for any event.” – Kristin & Justin ~ September 5, 2014
