Reception of the Stars Tour 10/2/11

On Sunday morning October 2, Jessie and I particpated in the wedding planner tour. We visited 6 venues
including Sacred Heart Banquet and Conference Center, Quality Inn and Suites, Lakes of Taylor, Portofino’s, The Fairlane Club and The Henry. An enjoyable day was had by everyone!

Our first stop was at Sacred Heart and Josh Mayse of Thomas’s Catering and the facility had 5 beautiful
tables setup and a wonderful continental breakfast with home made scones, cinnnamon rolls, raspberry and brie phyllo puffs and mimosa’s. It was all delicious!

My favorite !

Our next stop was The Quality Inn and they had some delicious dessert waiting for us!  They have a few different themed rooms from African Safari, Butterfly, Asian, Beach and more. They gave each of us a 50%
discount on a stay in one of these “fantasy suites”.

WOW!!! Which one do you think I picked ? LOL

Next up was Lakes of Taylor. I had never heard of this venue and was quite pleased on their outdoor ceremony site for my brides and grooms.

We all headed to Portofino’s next in Wyandotte. If you are looking for a venue near water this is a great spot. Their room in the back is great as it’s surrounded by all glass and to rent it out you only need to spend a minimum of $10 a person. They set up some beautiful mock-up tables for us to view.

The next stop along the way was The Fairlane Club. When we walked in they had Harpist Diane Dunn playing beautiful music in the lobby. They gave us wonderful appetizers too.

The last stop of our tour was The Henry. What a beautiful venue this is. They greeted us with the most delicious chocolate chip cookies and milk shooters. They also had cheesecake on a stick and those were to die for too! The property is gorgeous.

These were the bomb !
