"I am in the process of going to small claims court to obtain a refund of the deposit I made to
. I cancelled my reservation more than 9" months before the event.
agreed twice to refund my deposit within a few days and twice has failed to live up to his promise. I have sent
numerous emails and have called him numerous times to discuss the refund.
refuses to communicate with me concerning the refund. My hope is that the suit will not cause
to go into bankruptcy.

Questions to Ask When Choosing a Wedding Reception Hall

The reception hall is one of the first things that you should reserve for your wedding. Use the tips included here to assist with your decision.

Couples from all over the country are placing orders for fake styrofoam cakes, which are decorated with real icing and can run as little as $100.

Many couples view their wedding day as an opportunity to showcase each other and that means the groom get more input when it comes to decision making.

Tables and chairs are easy decisions. For other party rentals, make sure they fit your audience. A bounce house may be too much for very young children and boring for those approaching their teenage years. A karaoke set-up may be great for all ages.

PROCEED WITH CAUTION when thinking of booking your wedding at King’s Court Castle in Canterbury Village!!!
Recently my son was married at The Wedding Chapel in Canterbury Village and the reception at King’s Court Castle. I’m compelled to give this lengthy review of the event to cover the issues, so prospective customers are aware of potential issues if you’re considering booking this wedding venue. Wish I had been advised of these issues … I wouldn’t have trusted them with such an important life experience.
After working with
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
to ensure my son’s wedding would be close to perfect, the King’s Court staff really fell short! I had asked
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
several times “who will be there to oversee the wedding and reception that evening?”. She said
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
the Banquet Mgr would be available at our event. They tell you what you want to hear … not what is really going to happen.
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
was nowhere to be found because she was overseeing (3) other events that evening. An experienced banquet manager needed to be overseeing the inexperienced staff of young men. Instead, a very young manager was put in charge of her responsibilities at our 150 guest wedding reception. The servers might have been all of 17 years old and didn’t have a clue what they were supposed to be doing. Guidance was needed to do the simplest tasks and acted as though this was their first
time working a large event. So, this became my responsibility for the evening!
1.
Cheese display had no serving utensils. Guests were using fingers to help themselves to cheese & crackers. I asked one of the young staff members if they had tongs. He replied “oh yes” … & ran to get some very large salad tongs. I had to ask him for smaller tongs. I’m certain State Health Dept. wouldn’t like to see people touching food to serve themselves. They ran out of appetizer plates, leaving guests waiting.

2.
I purchased a special champagne for the “bride & groom toast” . When I asked for bottle to be opened, the young man said “Oh yes, I’ll have to get a manager to open it” . By the time he got it opened, the toasts were finished. The bride and
groom had no champagne in flutes for toast .. very embarrassing and unacceptable!!! The young manager finally brought the opened champagne and apologized, but you cannot redo that missed special moment!
3.
Dinner buffet had no salad plates or bowls and dinner plates were pretty small. Guests had to put salad on same plate with beef and sauce, etc …. very unprofessional way to serve! I asked manager to find plates/ bowls and he did, but I shouldn’t have had to oversee this.
4.
I had planned a Beautiful Sweet Table with (4) different cakes and fruit tarts. Some guests were beginning to leave and dessert table had not been set up yet. I asked staff to please bring out desserts for the Sweet Table. Instead they walked around with the fruit tarts on trays offering them to guests. I asked them to simply place a variety of all desserts on the table for guests to select from …. pretty
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
task and given that
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
had written instructions to ensure it was done nicely … this was unacceptable! The dessert table I put so much time and expense into was ruined by lack of effort on staff’s part.
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
’t even think all desserts I brought were served.

5.
Two thirds through the evening my son asked for a mixed drink and noticed that he was served well liquor. The bartender said “Yes it’s well liquor …. that’s what Iwas told to serve”. The bride & groom paid $600 for the upgraded bar … it wasn’t being served! My son and I went into the kitchen to speak with staff. They showed us the Standard Bar order. A staff member remembered my visit to
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
’s office where I paid $600 cash to upgrade bar.
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
, the young manager, immediately brought out the appropriate liquor. Very wrong that the groom and
mother had to spend time away from reception handling something that should have been done by
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
the Banquet Manager
… EXTREMELY POOR SERVICE!!!
6. After dinner dirty dishes were still on the tables. So, the bar ran out of clean glasses because tables were not cleared … guests were served drinks in plastic cups ... very low class!
7.
I was assured by
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
that
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
(banquet manager) would be present during the event … SHE WAS NOT! Too many events being held at King’s Court that evening and that’s why we didn’t have enough plates, glasses & staff to handle event.
If drastic changes aren’t made, King’s Court Castle will be known as a venue that puts on mediocre events with poor customer service. We spent over $7,000 and expected to receive great service. Money seems to be priority at King’s Court Castle ... the priority should be making your wedding day special! When your big day comes and things aren’t as promised, it’s too late…. you can’t redo it.

’t believe everything you’re told or you might be the next unhappy person writing reviews!!!
When told about the horrible service we received,
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
and the owner
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
were appalled, apologized and did offer to refund a very small amount of money in comparison to what we paid for this event. I found this refund an insult considering the fact that I missed out on a big part of my son’s wedding reception to manage their staff and also missed special moment of champagne toast, so we have no memories or photos!
Hopefully, my review will help someone considering King’s Court Castle for their wedding venue, so you
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
’t experience our disappointment. One positive note … The Wedding Chapel was very charming and ceremony was lovely!

Everything went very smoothly, from the planning with
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
to the actual execution of the dinner. As with I assume most weddings there were several little changes along the way.
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
was able to help and make suggestions in order to make things easier. When it came to the day of the wedding, we were able to get in to the
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
as soon as they opened in order to set up. I wasn't there to help set up our decorations but it looked wonderful when I did arrive. There was only one small hiccup when it came to the dinner and cocktail hour. Some where along the line there was a miscommunication of the start time, 4:30 as opposed to 4:00, but this was sorted out quickly with out a problem. After that is was smooth sailing and the staff helped kept things moving. We had scheduled the room until 10pm but guest were allowed to stay and talk till close of the restaurant at around 2am. I would use the
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
again for a large gathering and will continue to go there for there excellent food and German beer.

They had a garden for the wedding, they had a tent for the reception and they had a ballroom. We had our own caterer. They don't do the catering. The problem was that the staff was rude and disrespectful with the family members of the wedding parties (both the bride and the groom's family), acted condescendingly to the members of the family at a very happy occasion and it really tarnished the experience for the immediate family. It was a beautiful location but people should be wary of the staff. The staff is obnoxious. I would want others to be wary of using them.

My daughter and I ate dinner at the restaurant. Good menu. Food was great. Service was good. Their garlic rolls are worth the trip alone! One of the great places to dine in downtown Hillsboro.

It was a fabulous experience. Everybody that we got through them was good. Everything we got from them was good. The food was fabulous and we had a pre-tasting for it. They were responsive.

They were expensive but it was good value.

Throughout the planning process he was a bit difficult to get ahold of, but we hoped things would go OK as we got the final music to him the afternoon before the wedding and could discuss final details. This last minute work was terribly stressful.
The videographer seemed sub-contracted, but was very professional.
Unfortunately we then spent several months trying to get the video from
Brooklyn Park Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
. He stopped responding to emails, then finally responded and claimed to have shipped it, even promised to send us a tracking number. We never received the video and he never sent us a tracking number. He now refuses to respond to emails, texts, phone calls and voice mails.
He has also not refunded our money and we live in California so we're unable to follow up in person.
