TESTIMONIALS FROM SMITTEN BRIDES
We could not recommend CJ's highly enough! We chose to have a destination wedding and were initially a bit nervous about choosing a venue without actually seeing it in person first but we Skyped with CJ who put all of our apprehensions at ease. The pictures online are amazing but when you see it in person it's even better! (Which is lucky since we opted to only see the venue in person the DAY BEFORE our wedding). Jennifer was our wedding planner and she was the best! We definitely couldn't have done it without her. She helped us with everything from compiling a list of local vendors to helping us hand pick our table settings over Skype. Even though I'm sure she had many other couples to deal with at the same time she consistently made us feel like a priority and was quick to respond whenever we had any questions. Overall our wedding at CJ's was everything we had hoped for and more. Our guests still can't stop talking about how stunning the venue was and how amazing and attentive all of the staff were. We really can't thank them enough! ~ Sidney & Stephen
This was a destination wedding and as the bride, I was very nervous about how the planning process was going to unfold. [My planner] Jennifer put all of my worries at ease. She went above and beyond to guide us through the wedding process and was always ready and able to answer all our questions. The wedding reception was an absolute dream! The gorgeous pavilion and garden were perfect to capture and enjoy the natural scenery during the cocktail hour and reception. The food selection was excellent and was cooked to perfection. The wedding cake was exactly like the picture I sent Jennifer and tasted delicious! Above all, the staff was friendly and extremely helpful at all times. My guests are still raving about how it was the best wedding reception they have been to and that they cannot wait to visit Franklin again!! ~ HeatherPhoto: Jen & Chris Creed
