A HUGE Thank You for Everything

"We want to say a HUGE thank you for everything! The food was to die for and our friends and family have not stopped talking about it! The fact that they were able to enjoy a BBQ'd meal like that at a wedding was beyond what they could have imagined, and the quality of the food exceeded all expectations. Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavours of everything was just delicious!
The chef himself was also something to speak so highly about! We could not believe the work he did and how perfect he cooked everything. He was unbelievably impressive and our guests could not believe the amount of food he was cooking on top of cooking steaks to order exactly how each person wanted it. WOW is all we can say.
Yourself and the staff were also amazing. So kind, helpful and considerate. You were all great! Everything went so smooth and all the staff were so efficient with everything they did while still ensuring our friends and family were happy and well looked after.
All of this was perfect, along with the fabulous atmosphere. The Summer House is beautiful inside and out and was the perfect setting for our wedding including the many locations for pictures around The Briars property that were so breathtaking. It made for the perfect backdrop for our wedding. The day was fantastic and we truly could not have asked for more. 
Thank You again to The Briars Resort and staff."

A Spectacular Day

"I'm Jean, I was one of the bridesmaids at Tim and Vanessa's wedding. I'm writing this to express my deepest thanks to you and your staff for making sure that their day went well. Had it not been for you and the other dedicated staff at The Briars, I don't know if we would have been able to pull it all together in time. It turned out to be a fabulous night and we all had a great time! The resort is stunning and the food was excellent! All of the staff we dealt with were polite, helpful and went above and beyond the call of duty. I am truly grateful to you all for making the day spectacular!"
