One word can sum up our experience with Julie and SYC: Outstanding! Everything was exactly the way we wanted it. The food was excellent and planning with them was so easy. I have looked at pretty much all venues on the GC and the SYC definitely had so much more to offer than everyone else. And that view was just a cherry on top! Thank you so much.
