Amazing Venue from a COVID bride! - An Eventective User

I hope this review reaches out to those whose wedding days were affected by COVID and are struggling with finding a venue that is gorgeous, with good food, follows all the health and safety regulations, all while keeping a budget. Sai Woo, is 100% that place. My husband and I had to postpone our destination wedding that was scheduled for October 2020 on the east coast. Making that decision was so incredibly hard and a lot of tears were shed. For fear of a second wave, we decided to get married as soon as we were in phase 3 with events allowed with up to 50 people. Now came a whole other set of barriers - we didn’t want to spend a whole lot as this was extra spendings on top of our already paid for destination wedding. I called every restaurant, golf course, hotel, and hall - there was always something that didn’t fit our needs. Until we found Sai Woo. From the get-go, me and my husband felt like they really understood our predicament and the vision we wanted for our day. They worked with us and our planner to have our dream wedding come to life regardless of all the restrictions. They allowed us freedom to decorate the lounge downstairs, allowed us to choose our menu, all while considering our budget. The lounge allowed for 50 with proper social distancing, so with our guests list of 42, there was plenty of room for everyone to be safe. Our day was absolutely perfect. Becky and Salli worked so hard to coordinate with the staff, who were amazing, masked, and professional. None of our guests had been to Sai Woo before, and the ambiance we created was something out of a movie - like a secret speak easy. Everyone was in awe of how intimate, beautiful, and magical the venue was. I cannot stress this enough - Sai Woo helped us create our dream wedding. Covid or not, we couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day. Me and my husband owe a lot of it to Sai Woo and their amazing staff. Please brides and grooms, if you’re looking for a place for your reception - save yourself the hassle of looking elsewhere because it doesn’t get any better than Sai Woo.
