Deborah Sahijwani – Mother of the Bride – Asha Sahijwani, September 15, 2017, Terraview
"Thank you! We had a lot of fun; even more than we expected. We want to let you know how much we appreciated feeling like we were the only couple being catered to on Sunday (during the sampling). Everyone was professional, friendly, and right on top of everything. The food was amazingly delicious, and we were delighted and surprised to receive our own little favor cookie! The Woodland Chapel location actually reminded us of the place where we got engaged. The reception and cocktail areas have that rustic type of look we want . . . and we think our guests would enjoy staying in any of the rooms we saw while on our tour of the lodging area. Stroudsmoor Country Inn feels like its own little country village - a private, serene world away from all the craziness of the city. Frank and I had a great time."
