We couldn't have been happier with this venue and the catering company, Gourmet Galley! We had our wedding here on 8/5/17. We held the ceremony out over the lawn. It is 3 months later and our guests are still raving about the gorgeous views. Marissa McCue was our coordinator and event planner on the day. I cannot say enough about Marissa. She made sure that every small detail was planned perfectly. The day could not have been smoother due to her planning and organization. She was wonderful to work with through out the entire process. She made sure to take the time to meet as many times as I needed before the big day. We had 200 guests and used the tented patio as an extension of the indoor venue to accommodate all of our guests. I was concerned that this may make the guests outside feel disconnected from the venue, but this was 100% not the case! The large windows made the tented patio feel part of the actual indoor room. It was a beautiful night and many guests ended up walking outside later in the evening. Everyone says "something will go wrong on your day and you just have to let it go", for us we can honestly say that not one thing went wrong! I attribute this to the venue, the catering company, Marissa specifically and all of our wonderful vendors. If you choose to go with the GYC and Gourmet Galley you will not be disappointed!

Marissa is such an amazing person to work with. She made the planning of our special day so easy and fun. She is organized, responsive, friendly and supportive. The Gourmet Gallery is lucky to have her on their team! We had the ceremony and reception at the Guilford Yacht club and Gourmet Gallery Catering did a fantastic job with the food/preparations and decor. I love that we were able to make our menu unique to us and it tasted amazing. Couldn't have ask for a better day. Thank you GGC and most importantly Marissa!

Dear Marissa, We can't say enough about your staff and their attention to detail at Lauren's wedding. They made us feel very comfortable and secure knowing that we were in good hands. For a young wait staff, they were very mature and accommodating. Katherine was wonderful. Jewel was indispensable, and she kept everything running like clockwork. She took all the worry out of the day. The bartenders were amazing; we kept them busy! Please let them know that we appreciate their professionalism and all of their help on Lauren and Austin's very special day. Thanks, Jack and Liz

I cannot begin to express how happy we are with how our wedding turned out at the GYC. From the moment I first spoke with Marissa on the phone to learn about the venue and the services Gourmet Galley Catering provides, to her staff packing up all of our decor and left over food at the end of the night into our cars, I was constantly left impressed with everyone and everything. The venue is absolutely stunning and private, with a beautiful outdoor and indoor space. All of our guests couldn't stop commenting about the beauty of the venue, the service, and the quality of the food. Marissa was an absolute pleasure to work with. In the one year that we had from signing the contract to the wedding day, Marissa and I communicated through email and phone almost on a weekly basis. Marissa answered every single question in a quick fashion, provided suggestions, and constantly put my mind at ease. I couldn't help but tear up when I arrived the day of the wedding to see how beautifully her staff had set up all of our decorations and made my vision come true. I cannot thank them enough for a beautiful wedding day - we will cherish the memories of celebrating with our friends and family at the GYC forever! I highly recommend the GYC and Gourmet Galley Catering for anyone's wedding day. Thank you!!!!

After looking at many venues all over Connecticut, my husband and I chose to have our reception at GYC and we could not be happier with our decision. Marissa and the Gourmet Galley staff worked with us to create a night that was unique and fit our individual style. I appreciated Marissa's responsiveness to email and her flexibility with meeting dates, as I was trying to plan our wedding from across the country.

My husband and I got married at Guilford Yacht Club on June, 28, 2014, and we couldn't have been happier with the way our wedding turned out. After many months of planning and countless emails with Marissa (the most amazing event planner), our special day was everything we could have hoped for and more. Guilford Yacht Club is a breath taking venue on a beautiful summer day. The food was absolutely delicious, from the mini tacos to the seared tuna to the prime rib, I could honestly go on and on. The attention to detail throughout the entire process from the catering staff and Marissa was something that really sets apart Gourmet Galley and the Guilford Yacht Club. Everything was so personalized to our likes and wishes, and that definitely made our wedding a true reflection of who we are as a couple. My husband and I have wonderful memories of our wedding day and nothing but good things to say about Gourmet Galley Catering, Marissa, and the Guilford Yacht Club. They are professional, knowledgeable, and fun to work alongside with. Our remarkable experience wouldn't have been possible without all of their efforts. We would highly recommend their services!

Amazing! Marissa was so patient with me and made sure that everything was perfect. She was also very mindful that we were on a budget and worked with us until we came to the cost that fit within our means. It truly couldn't have been any better - just gorgeous. Book with GYC!...You WON'T regret it!

I can not say enough about the excellent experience that my husband and I had working with Gourmet Galley and Marissa in particular. We had a stressful 45 minute delay of our ceremony but Marissa made sure that everything was coordinated perfectly and her staff in the kitchen worked furiously to adjust the food to the time change. It could have been an extremely chaotic time however we and our guests hardly noticed the bump in the road. You can never be fully prepared for what might happen on your wedding day, but be sure that if you choose Gourmet Galley and work with Marissa things are sure to go off without a hitch!
