Ann & Linda (& Staff)
Where do I begin? I suppose I’ll start with THANK YOU!!!!! What an amazing and flawless wedding reception!!! I could not have dreamed up a better, more perfect night and much of that is due to the Moulin staff and their efforts to make the evening as personal as possible for myself, Kevin and our families. The fact that Moulin took the time to recognize who the special people were in our group (moms, dads, aunts, uncles, cousins) and made the extra effort to be sure we were each accommodated was simply amazing. The evening of, I could not have been prouder to host the biggest event of my life (with so many out of town and in town friends), at such a beautiful, well operated venue.
While I was mostly experiencing a whirlwind of chaos and fun as the bride, I did happen to notice that the staff (servers) wore big smiles and really seemed to be enjoying the night with us, even though they were working. As someone who has worked in the hospitality industry, I know first hand that this is not always the case. There is something so darn awesome about feeling like even the staff was enjoying their night. Their friendliness combined with professionalism really added to the entire evening. They were great!
With all the stress that can surround weddings, I can honestly say that Moulin always put me at ease. Ann, I know you mentioned several times that Moulin is service oriented but I don’t think I quite grasped that until the wedding day. From allowing us to get into the building earlier than you probably would have preferred, to organizing all of the vendor logistics and creating my vision for the most perfect New Year’s Eve wedding atmosphere, I cannot tell you how elated I am. I appreciate that you allowed my Auntie Jo (Jill) to come in and spin her magic on the decor and that you provided her with staff to help. She could not stop talking about how smooth setup went and it blew her away that someone was out in the parking lot to help her carry in flowers from the church to enter the reception. In her long history of doing flowers for weddings, she has never experienced that level of service. She could not stop raving about everything, which to us is huge because small disasters always accompany family weddings. We truly broke the spell!!
Chef nailed the meal. I cannot tell you how many people have mentioned how tender the steak was or how juicy the chicken was and “How did they do that with so many people?” I even got comments on the potatoes being so tasty! Perhaps I’m an anomaly for brides, but I actually was able to eat my entire dinner and I have to agree, absolutely delicious. Please thank Chef and his kitchen staff.
I could probably go on for hours so I will try to wrap this up. The first look setup was perfect. Thank you so much for allowing us to use the Malt House Cellar, and for letting us run late. I cannot express to you how lucky I felt to not have to stress about those logistics. The space was absolutely perfect and Moulin did not make us feel pressure to hurry which really helped me stay calm. Since we had our first date at PW, it was really special to be able to hop in a booth for some photos. We will be lifelong customers of all of the spaces in the building. In fact, we had dinner at PW last night to celebrate our week-versary. That building has become such a special place for us, I am wishing I could do it all over again!!
And Linda. WOW! Thank you for everything. You are my hero! From greeting me in the parking lot for the first look and grabbing my granola bars so I didn’t faint, to greeting me again for the reception and helping me get situated, finding us hors d’oeuvres, and making sure I always had a beverage in my hand all night (or anything else I needed, for that matter), I cannot thank you enough. You also really took the time to get to know the special people in my life and made sure everyone was taken care of. That kind of attention and service is rare to find, and it makes all the difference. You helped all of our requests come true and worked with our photographers to get us situated. I am so thankful you were part of our evening!!
Again, thank you thank you. Please let the staff know that they really did a fantastic job. Many of our guests have mentioned that it was one of the nicest weddings they’ve ever attended. It of course makes me feel lucky and proud, but also grateful that I had such great people helping me make it all come together.
I can’t wait to get photos back to share with everyone. I will be sure to email some your way!

I was in the wedding party this weekend. I have celiac disease and am always leery of eating supposedly gluten free food at large catered events. Moulin was terrific! All my food came out wrapped, so I knew extra precautions were taken with my meal. Linda on your event staff took special care and even brought me a creme brûlée while others were enjoying the wedding cake. I have been gluten free for five years and the only other wedding in which I got dessert was my own. It was a real treat! Thank you for making such an effort and exceeding my expectations. Linda is quite the gem, as well! Thank you!
“I just wanted you to know that our evening was PERFECT! Our guests loved the room and were delighted by the food and service. I cannot say enough about the service! It was SUPER! Your staff should definitely be commended. The food was awesome too!
The pastor and his wife were at our table. As you may expect, he goes to a lot of rehearsal dinners. I wanted to share his exact quote with you. He said, “This evening belongs in the Hall of Fame of Rehearsal Dinners!”
So, thank you! It was a pleasure working with you, and I will surely recommend you and keep you in mind for future celebrations!”

“I just want to tell you what a great job you and the Chef did. It could not have been more perfect and that, in large part, is due to you and the Chef. I have heard so many horror stories about weddings and we do not even have one to tell. I had a leisurely day on Friday and Saturday with nothing to do but take care of my daughter’s personal needs. It was such a pleasure. And the FOOD! It was excellent. Everyone commented that they have never had such good food at a large event like this and they loved the family style tapas. You all put together a winner and I shall spread your fame. Thanks so much for all your competence, attention to detail, creativity and tender loving care.”

Thank you so much for taking your time with us and never making us feel rushed it meant so much!”

“Thanks so much for all of your help prior to and during our event. The wine stations were great and your staff most helpful. Everyone enjoyed the evening. I look forward to working with you again next year!”
“Everything was perfect… the floor plan, the food, the staff–EVERYTHING ! I look forward to working with you as we prepare for the Tastings 2009!”
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work and planning for Ann and Brian’s wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect and all of our friends and family had a spectacular time. I cannot tell you how many compliments we received that evening. It was wonderful to know all were enjoying themselves. From the food, to the service, to the atmosphere, we were thrilled with the evening. Be sure to pass along our thanks to Amanda, Linda, the chef, and the rest of your amazing staff. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Again, our most gracious thanks!”
