Brunch with Santa Dec 11, 2011

What a fun day! Santa arrived in his Big Red Truck at 11am sharp, read a Christmas story to the children and listened patiently while they sat on his lap and told them their wish list. Junior Golf Day was a huge success as well! I got a visit from bride and groom Katie & Howie who will be celebrating their wedding at Alaqua October 20, 2012!

Hi Delinah…
I just got back from our honeymoon, but I  want to tell you it has been such a pleasure working with you and that you and your team did an AWESOME job with the wedding.  It could not have been more perfect!!!!!!  You are so great to work with and you really listen to us and completely understood what we were looking for.  The wedding, room, staff and  food were first class.  You and your team are the best and I can’t wait to book another event with you.  I will recommend you to everyone.   I just can’t say enough good things-Juan and I had an amazing wedding thanks to you and the Alaqua staff!!!

October 8th

October 8th we hosted the Ladewig Wedding for Marilyn and Erik. What a success!...despite the awful rain storm...everything worked out perfectly. I will post pics the meantime here is an email quote from the Mother of the Bride.

Dearest Delinah:  I want to say thank you so much for all you did to make my daughter's princess bride ceremony/reception come true.  It was truly a beautiful and most intimate wedding.  I cannot thank you enough for your coordination and guidance, in light of the atrocious weather.  The weather was a mere hiccup in the entire event.  I will send you professional pictures of the wedding.  I do have the bellydance recorded in my digital camera.  Again Alaqua Country Club should be very proud of you and everyone else there who worked so hard to make this wedding the success it was.
