I would 100% reserve the restaurant. I didn't want ppl hearing my speaches or being drunk around my guests. If you were getting married locally you would have a private wedding right!! Just to give you an example, during my wedding a really really drunk man came into the restaurant and starting standing with my guests, he got escorted out right away. I would have been so upset if we didn't have it private and he could drink at the bar or near us.

I used Michael Stiengard who is Phil's nephew - they cost the same amount of money, $2600 and it was WELL worth it. That includes the TTD and I did do it. My guest were in aww of Michael and ppl have said I have the best photo's they have even seen.
