Dear Jeanne and Frank –
No doubt, on any given Monday your email box is full of messages like this one. My husband, Rob, and I wanted to thank you both so very much. Our daughter’s wedding reception last weekend (9/13/13) exceeded our expectations in every way. The ballroom and bar and patio at Stone House are so lovely, especially on a beautiful day/night like the one we had. All the food was delicious and your entire staff was polished, professional and solicitous all evening of us and the bride and groom. Frank and Mercedes were just terrific – they reassured and relaxed us first-timers with great ease and confidence. And we cannot say enough about Aurora Serrano. She has a warm, patient and knowledgeable professionalism and was so very helpful to us all through our year long preparation. She will be a big part of our recommendation of Stone House to our friends and family, all of whom raved about our reception.
Our photographer, Berit Bizjak of Images by Berit, Inc. may make up a sample book which we will send to Aurora.
Again, many thanks,
Dear Carissa and Frank,
I want to thank you and the rest of the staff for making our occasion–a very important one to us, because it is unlikely for so many of our family to be together again en masse like that, absolutely GREAT!!!!!!!!!
I wish I had tried more of the food (one gets overwhelmed and busy) because everyone has been going on about how good it was. Everything worked out quite seamlessly… elegantly yet warm and friendly…. just as I had wanted…
The staff were all so gracious, polite and accommodating… (not easy these days to find people with such good demeanor)
Carissa, the moment I got to StoneHouse and began our conversation, I knew this was what I wanted and hoped I could afford it. You helped me make the right choices to make it more attainable. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
Frank, the moment Carissa introduced us, I again felt lucky. How can it ALL be so great? Just a hand shake and my blood pressure came down a little, sensing again the party is being taken care of by great people.
Not only are you great professionals, but people with warmth and heart. What else is there?
If I write with love, you’ll think I’m ridiculous, so I’ll say, with all sincere thanks,
Thanks so much for a lovely event! We all had a great time and the staff did a wonderful job. Thank you and I look forward to attending many events in your beautiful location!
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you for an amazing wedding! I couldn’t have dreamed up a more perfect place with more perfect staff. You, Frank and Mercedes especially were all beyond easy and wonderful to work with. The food was amazing! The drinks were amazing! I wouldn’t have changed a thing. All of my friends and family can’t stop raving about the Stone House. I feel very blessed to have been married there and to have worked with you. Thank you again so much for everything!
Good morning Carissa,
I just wanted to tell you how pleased my husband and I were with how the wedding reception turned out on Sunday. The food was delicious and bountiful, the setting was amazing, and the service was flawless. Our guests truly enjoyed everything, and, most importantly, Adina and Micah were so very happy. The cocktail-style dinner reception worked out well and was fun. I appreciated too how you arranged for the family tables to have place settings. Everything turned out so beautifully. I just wish we could have slowed time down a bit to make it last longer! Thanks again for all you did from the planning stages to the actual event to enable us to give our daughter a very memorable wedding reception.

I’m so sorry it took me so long to email you, we went away and skipped town for a mini-moon this week and just got back on Sunday! We’re waiting to take our real honeymoon until October due to George’s work schedule (we are going to Bora Bora on 10/19- I can’t wait!) but we went to a spa to relax, drink wine, and just rejuvenate post-wedding!
Anyway, I wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to you and everyone at Stone House for the incredible job you guys did on my wedding on 5/18! It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for us– everything was exactly in place and set up perfectly, the room looked gorgeous, and the food and drinks were incredible! We are over-the-moon thrilled with how our evening turned out and many thanks also for helping to bustle my wedding dress (what a nightmare that was, LOL!) George and I seriously cannot express our gratitude enough and we are just so happy and would have our wedding at Stone House again in a second! (I smell a vow renewal in a few years…. what do you think?
Let’s keep in touch and I definitely would love to stop by to see you & Patricia soon! Thank you again for EVERYTHING- you’re FABULOUS!!!!

I wanted to send this e-mail to thank you on behalf of James & myself for such an amazing wedding that was held for us! We had the best night & everything went so perfectly. We really could have not asked for a better wedding. Everything from the food to the service to the space was perfect & above & beyond what we expected! We received so many compliments from our guests about the food, especially the cocktail hour. We wish we had been able to try more of our selections from the cocktail hour! We were so busy chatting with guests that we only got to try a couple things!! But what we did get to eat tasted AMAZING! I would also like to say that Frank & Mercedes were exceptional! Mercedes literally had a drink ready for us every time we finished one. They were both so attentive & helpful. And thank you so much for getting a cake!!!! That was so kind! It’s service like that & how great Mercedes & Frank were that makes the Stone House such a desirable place to get married! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! We’ll be back for dinner soon! We miss the place! And please extend the thank you to Mercedes & Frank as well!

Dear Carissa and Frank,
We cant begin to thank both of you for a spectacular wedding for our children. Both of you were so supportive and there for us at every question and problem we may have had. Everyone has not stopped talking about the beauty of the Stone House and the food was superb as well. We look forward to coming to the Stone House in the future.
