“This place is simply the best. The staff is intuitive, attentive, and precise in their delivery of service. I actually miss them! I went to Regatta Place on a whim and immediately fell in love with the place and staff. We changed our wedding date to make sure we could get married here. I am beyond glad that we did; Regatta Place is an absolute dream maker. Worth every cent.”
