It was a pleasure to work with the event planning staff at Berry Hill Resort & Conference Center in the planning and execution of a complex array of events over a 2 day period celebrating the life of my recently deceased wife.
When first approached about hosting such an event the staff responded with excellent suggestions to meet our needs for an upbeat memorial service. It was probably one of the most unique events to occur at Berry Hill since the Yankees went through but it was choreographed with precision. From room accommodations with amenities for each of the family and friends arriving from out of town on Friday, to the final departure on Sunday morning, every detail was perfect.
The scenario involved arrival of a Limousine Bus loaded with weary, but joyful, travelers, providing for quick check-in, and extremely efficient staff assistance. The local Model A Club brought their cars for display as part of the memorial service because my wife was a charter member of the club. Even though the weather was threatening, they were undeterred and the hotel made sure they were positioned perfectly in the front circle drive of the mansion. The Dixieland Jazz band from the local area, recommended by the staff, was a smash hit, playing a variety of upbeat tunes and featuring "When the Saints Go Marching In" just before the memorial service started. The band picked up again while the food was brought in for the 2 hour reception that followed and they provided a perfect backdrop for people to reminisce about the fun times we all had with my wife.
The smooth transition from event to event was carefully orchestrated by the staff so that everyone had the feeling of being right at home with friends. The food was excellent and the wait staff excelled at meeting every need of the guests. The Family and Friends Dinner on Saturday evening was, again, a flawless presentation of extraordinary cuisine prepared to perfection. The friendly staff helped keep the family gathering a fun event.
Check-out on Sunday morning was flawless. Nothing but the greatest compliments from the guests on the rooms and accommodations.
I wish they would let me give a 6 star rating.
