Hi Victoria; I'm so sorry this has taken so long but it seems like the days and weeks after the wedding are just as busy as the ones leading up to it! Rafael and I are still settling into married life and we are still receiving calls, texts and emails about how amazing our wedding was. My parents were so so very proud to be able to say they gave us such an elegant, organized and fun wedding, and speaking as the coordinator of the wedding I know that 100% of everything that went right on that day was because of the courtesy, professionalism, and the fact that all of your staff are proud to be there. I want to specifically thank you for making this day come true- I knew when we walked in that I wanted Chateau Briand - I even dreamt about it after the first time we visited- and our wedding turned out better than it was in my dream. Thank you for working with my mom and thank you for always being available even though I imagine you are a very busy woman. I want to also thank Paul who made the last week before the wedding The least stressful by working together with us and securing a place for the center pieces. He is such a kind and thoughtful man and so good at what he does! Please send him my regards and let him know that I may have been the happiest bride on the planet because I didn't have to worry about a thing before I arrived. Lastly please let David, Reina, and Alicia D know that they tied all the pieces together that day -I had no idea how much support I was going to have on that day but David executed the ceremony and reception exactly how I had planned and I had only met him on the day of!! He is amazing! Reina and Alicia were so great at making sure I was well fed, , not thirsty and went above and beyond for my mom who kept needing access to the bridal suite - please let them know that everyone in the wedding party is still talking about how attentive they were as a team. Thank you Victoria- we keep getting messages from family and friends about how we raised the bar with this wedding- the food, the reception hall, the decor, the staff and about how everything was so well done, and I want to make sure you guys know that we are 100% grateful because you made it happen. We are a big celebratory family so hopefully we'll see you again soon Xoxo Mr and Mrs Frias

Had our wedding here and was very very satisfied with the place. We felt the price was very reasonable for the amount you are given. First off, the reason we booked it was it was my wife's desire for the outside cocktail hour in that beautiful space. That week in May the weather was very chilly all week that the outside cocktail hour was a little in jeopardy. They knew how badly she wanted it outside and they waited to the last possible minute and accommodated us when they realized it would be a nicer evening. From the moment we arrived at the hall on our wedding day we were attended to and fed. The food there is very good and the amount of food you get was even satisfactory to my Italian family. I also will say they worked with us as we had the most important guest at our wedding (Mr. Met) and they ensured meals and Mr Met would work with no issues. Fantastic venue and if i was to get married again I would go back

I honestly don't think i could have had a nicer wedding. From start to finish Chateau Briand made my life easy. They were amazing. I would definitely recommend them. I've had so many compliments from my guests.
Thoroughly Enjoyed Ourselves

Chateau Briand was one of the few venues that we visited that could accommodate our 300+ guest wedding. Victoria was great at working with us to include some of our cultural cuisine requests, and came through with everything we asked for. The maitre d and day-of attendants were amazing and did everything for us so we didn't have to worry about a thing. All of our guests loved the outdoor cocktail hour space, and thought they were in South Beach. And everyone raved about the quality and quantity of the food. Chateau Briand is a pro at making everything run smoothly for a big event, and takes care of everything for the bride and groom. Thank you for making our day so stress-free so we could enjoy ourselves to the fullest!

My husband and I visited almost 20 venues before we chose Chateau Briand for our special day. The funny thing is, we went to Chateau Briand early in our search and it was hard to find anything that beat it. When we visited Chateau Briand, we met with Susan Bria who spent time showing us around the venue and discussed menu options as well as pricing. Susan was very easy to talk to and super friendly. After finally booking our wedding with Chateau Briand, a huge weight was lifted off our shoulders, because we knew we were in good hands. Susan gave us a timeline for sending out save the dates, invitations, RSVP's, and so much more. Each email I sent was answered in less than a day. The process was smooth and easy. The day of our wedding, we were very pleased with how everything went. Our ceremony outside was beautiful. I loved how they rolled out a white runner before I walked down the aisle. Our guests raved about the food and said that this was one of the most elegant affairs they have been to. My bridal attendants were wonderful and our Maître D was great as well! I would highly recommend Chateau Briand for your upcoming event. I don't think you will be disappointed!
