Sorry to hear about all the drama with the Gansevoort, but with my initial phone conversations with them I didnt feel too comfortable as well. I Since David Tuterra was working with them, I thought maybe he had designed certain destination wedding packages like the Martha Stewart packages at sandals. But they quickly said no and everything was pretty much whatever I wanted to just tell them and they would let me knot the fees for everything. I felt like the prices for always changed. The lack of structure and actual packages for weddings was just a turn off.
I know that the hotel was very expensive and to have my wedding in T&C would have been my ultimate wedding location. But I just couldnt risk spending all that money and asking my guests to pay so much money too and then the wedding didnt live up to my expectations.
Well Good Luck and Happy Planning with the rest of your wedding!
