I was totally taken by surprise.
Looking at the building’s outside, you’d never suspect that within is Plymouth’s newest and only banquet hall. But after the first few steps inside Amore, my husband-to-be and I knew: This was the perfect place for our wedding reception.
What impressed me first? The hall’s spaciousness? Its clean, modern look? Its elegant, classy, brilliantly warm ambiance? My immediate visualization of this large, blank slate transformed into our special night?
Banquet coordinator Alan Bublitz gave us a tour, describing Amore’s amenities. An appealingly artistic, fully-stocked bar. Clean, modern restrooms. A courteous, professional and efficient staff to provide us and our guests a celebration of our wedding day, and leave us with lasting, glowing memories. Everything our perfect day would require.
Alan actually said that: Amore does everything to make our wedding reception perfect.
He must have detected my skepticism (based on friends’ less than ideal wedding experiences). He smiled. “Really,” he assured us. “I mean it. We take care of everything. You don’t worry about a thing. And I want to tell you, the line of communication between us will be one hundred per cent open.”
You know what? He meant that. Every word. On first meeting Alan, my expectations were fairly high. Well, those expectations were exceeded. Alan became our personal wedding planner, overseeing every detail. He was one hundred per cent available to us.
I was impressed with the beauty of Amore when I first walked in, and that was when it was empty! Alan certainly has a gift of creativity. He took the ideas and decorations I provided, and turned Amore into an unbelievably beautiful and elegant setting. He never shot down a single suggestion I offered. To every suggestion or request I had, his response was, “Sure, we can do that.”
You have to actually hear Alan say that, in his own voice, to appreciate his casual confidence, his experienced competence. I’ve seen friends become increasingly frantic and overwhelmed with details of an approaching wedding. Incredibly, my own state of mind increasingly became one of things being more and more under control, each time Alan calmly reassured us, “We’ll take care of that.” And never, never was he annoyed or bothered by what I thought were endless requests and questions on my part.
As we planned the banquet meal, I was impressed with our options. Creating the menu while accommodating a few guests with special food restrictions posed no problems for Alan. I expected the same quality food that I’d personally experienced at Antonio’s and Antionette’s. Again, those expectations were exceeded. The food was fantastic—perfectly cooked, seasoned, flavorful, and served quickly and efficiently. Guests raved about how great the food was.
Well, the truth is, the guests raved about everything. I myself will continue to rave about Alan, Amore and its staff, and give them all a 10-plus on a 10-star scale, for making ours a perfect wedding.
